This event has ended and I recommend you guys head over to the Folding Community Board for any general folding conversation.

Holy crap! I didn't know you were serious! lol

I barely get to drive my own cars anymore, I would LOVE it if someone can put my old hardware to good use.  I'm basically a packrat, I keep everything for no reason, so if you'll use it, you're better than me.


R5 3600, 5700 XT, AX370 K7...  and that's plenty for me.  If you ignore the masses of other parts I occasionally put together and laugh about.

I got a CPU work unit in the Vega56 box, that's been uncommon so far. It completed substantially faster than expected as well, estimated 2.4 days but finished in under an hour. Back to waiting on work again! The RX580 is getting work regularly just not often, but it seems to be better the last day or two.

I'm seeing CPU WUs pretty consistently. At most I have to wait half an hour before another WU comes along.

And, god damn, my old T500 has been chugging away for the last few hours at 100% CPU usage and it hasn't gone over 70C or throttled at all.

The first estimate is usually way off, from what I've found at least.

I've seen an estimate of 20 days before, but it will go down after a few minutes.

What CPU are you running?  I have an 1100T feeding my Vega 56.  I should really swap it for my 7970 since the E5-1620 gets a better PPD with more cores lol.

And there is goes the contribution of my GT 1030 pushig me almost to 90k. I think what that machine earned some rest for the night while the rest of the CPU machines doing their thing :) (tomorrow will be above 100k, not bad for my old computers)

 

Learned so much so far and so fun! Will be ready to not miss the next event like happened with this one screwing over my first folding/username.

 

BTW... if anybody near Argentina want to send me some computers parts, I could be happy ;)

Just had to remove the RX480 from the 'fold' as it has been getting WU after WU that hangs, never going past 0%

Forget near, what do you need? I'm flush with old parts.  I can't guarantee I have what you're looking for, but if it doesn't overlap with a use case I have, I can supply.

2700X, have 6 cores set for folding work leaving 1 core for GPU feed and 1 core for running whatever I'm doing. In reality Windows balances it all out. No OC past PBO XFR stuff, running about 4.1ghz at 1.2-1.3 volts on 6 cores active folding. I'd rather get GPU work units since it's way more efficient.

Hey! Well... I don`t have pretty much anything regarding video cards for example, no kidding that GT 1030 is the biggest thing I have. But 2 A.M. over here and I have to wake up early (even with the lockdown, we have my grandmother and she needs care), tomorrow I can send you the specs of my current computers :)

Well...  I have a 7970 Dual-X and a Vega 56 AirBoost.  I'm running both as folding units, but no reason I need to be.  Hell, I'm not even registered for this competition.  Would one be useful for you?  I need one for 4k output to my TV, but you're welcome to one.

I don't want to speak too soon but both my GPU and CPU have been well fed for the last 24 hrs.  Would be neat if there was a compiled list of WU compelted so I could at a glance see what I helped with.

Folding for 8 days now and proud to hit the 4m mark this night. I am folding with my R9 3950x and my RTX 2070 and my girlfriends PC, R5 2600X with RX380 and finally after the few first days i am getting more constant WUs to crunch through! :)

Yeah, same with me. Hopefully it will continue. I have definitely felt the temperature increase in my computer room this afternoon due to all my machines being active. :)

Well, the blog is up! I think that was the smoothest it's gone yet!

 

 

Wow, I totally didn't expect this. Even being in the Top1000 was nothing I thought would be possible, but Top400 for now with only a Ryzen9 3950X and a Radeon RX5700 XT is... wow :)

Thanks for the update every day, and the race style commentary ^^

Been folding less than a week. Unsure how to find rankings at LTT to measure my di... PC against others. Also, had to deny my CPU as it was just shy of 100c and I'd rather not butn my house down. Any way to give them a bit less than full access to it while allowing full access to the GPUs?

You could just assign fewer cores to your CPU. For example if you got something like a 6700K, you could just use 4 cores and get a lower draw on your CPU. Your GPU should just use 1 core, and that only once in awhile, if you just used the default setup.

You can change core use in the configure tab in the F@H advanced control.

WWOW! We are doing incredibly well! We`re still on total rank 4 (in the screenshot I ranked by points/week) total but look at the active users, the increase withing the last week and the 24h average 😮

Do all Work Units have the bonus points attached to them? Or do some of them don't have any bonus points?

 

Although I would get the estimated credit in most cases, sometimes, I would get some work units, where I would only receive the base credits, instead of the estimated credits. 

Anybody else experience the same thing?

Open the Advanced controls (you should have a shortcut in your start menu). Click configure and delete the CPU slot. it aint really worth the power needed to run it most of the time anyways
