LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19

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

 

 

Recommended Posts

I've added an interesting piece of hardware to my folding farm. This is a Phoenix Contact PPC-5319 Panel PC from 2004. It rocks a "Banias" Pentium M with 1.6 GHz crammed through a 400 MHz FSB. It's also got 512 MB of RAM and a 30 GB Maxtor hard drive and a fresh copy of Windows 7 32-bit. Not bad for a company that also makes hammers. Where my Ryzen 7 2700 is estimated to rake in 150,000 points a day, it seems this beauty will bring in about 59. Efficient in any way? No. Really cool? Yes.

It picked up work right away, so I guess there are some WU's optimized for a 32-bit glorified toaster.

Sorry I missed the dings. Did you get all of your stuff up and running?

so far so good Have pulled all my laptops as they dont generate enough points per watt from what my other computers output  i did swap my 2060 to a dell psu as the fan on my xfx psu apparently does not like running at full bore... have a new gold plus 750watt psu enroute now i maay take a pic tomorrow need to clean up cables...

Has anyone else looked at their electricity consumption since this sprint began?

1) Ryzen 3800X, X570, 64GB DDR4-3600 CL16, RTX 2080 Super (GPU estimated GFLOPS: 12,534, estimated PPD: 2.2M)

2) i7-4790K, Z97, 32GB DDR3-2400 CL11, RTX 2070 (GPU estimated GFLOPS: 9,354, estimated PPD: 1.5M)

3) i7-2600K, Z68, 16GB DDR3-1866 CL9, GTX 1070 (GPU estimated GFLOPS: 7,200, estimated PPD: 800K)

4) FX-8350, AMD 970, 16GB DDR3-1866 CL10, R9 390X (GPU estimated GFLOPS: 6,195, estimated PPD: 300K)

 

With the monitors off, pulling about 1.7 kW for these four PCs. It's probably pretty stupid to be folding with the 390X (PPD/Watt), but my son's been doing some gaming on the RTX 2070, so I need to regain some ground.

on my 1700 it makes a large difference but it is an all in one 

on my 2600 (Bender) it made about a 10-20 seconds per fold improvement on the gpu and the increase in tpf for the cpu was like +5-10 seconds so all in all was a win win. 

on my 5700xt it makes almost no diffrence but it is a 24 thread processor and normally bumps down to 21 cores any ways.

on bender since i got the nvidia card i have dropped it by 4 cores and still gets better than on my server with is running on 9 cores due to my security cams not agreeing to sharing load.

on my Intel/Nvidia computer I can't fold on the cpu at all else my computer becomes a useless brick to do anything else on so I know the feeling. Each computer is different even with the same cpu/gpu based on each persons use of the computer. If I dropped one or two cores it should help the gpu, but it also comes down to the wu as well, the new one I got has my gpu posting a 1 minute 45 second TPF time. My program auto selected 15 so I set it to 13 and my UPS whined about overdraw 🤣 but then again it is going to 4.3 vs sitting at 4.1ghz. I'll leave it like this for 30 minutes but I can't see it changing anything but my CPUs temp (by a whopping 1F, my cpu is sitting at 89F under full load, water cooled I looked it up and apparently these things naturally run hot) and my UPS whining about overdraw as the cpu keeps trying to draw more power...

 

Currently it is sitting at a +5 second loss for cpu and -10 second gain, with the annoyance of a ups beep every 1-2 minutes for the cpu trying to get to max boost...
Second thought screw it that beep is going to drive me up the wall...

Nice! I tried with a AMD E240 but that thing was too bad for anything! Also tried with a old Atom, better but still nahh... The oldest computer what Im running is a Intel E2160, but was a bit too slow for F@H so that one is running Roseta@home with BOINC now :)

Today sucked shiny metal ass.  Especially compared to yesterday.  I know lots of other folks saw the same type of results - but still, wtf?  <sob>

 

Goose eggs for most of the day.

Yeah, mine isn't looking so hot either.... :(

That's okay though, still happy to be contributing to a possible cure.

Damn, I got hit hard with some of my WUs not counting, only said I did 124k 😳 I’ve been showing periods of middle of the night not counting a thing.

 

I could be mistaken.

 

also anyone ever get a collection server listed as 0.0.0.0?

I was just pondering what the total cost of all the hardware being used by the 51,000 active team members would be. It's has to be mind blowing.

The guts of my workstation are an i7-6700K and RTX 2080 Ti

The guts of my folding server are dual Xeon X5687 3.6GHz chips with soon to be dual GTX 970's

I have 3 other ESXi servers running with 16 threads crunching CPU WUs

@TheAmazingDavedo you know much about older servers? I have a Dell R420 that has 2 PCIE slots that say they can on'y handle I think 25 or 30 watts of power. If I were to use an external power supply do you think I could use more powerful card(s)

Not sure, does your R420 have redundant power supplies? If so, I'd think you could just tap power off of the drive backplane like I intend to do with my T610. 

More importantly, what sort of PCIe slots does the R420 have? I'm not too familiar with that server TBH. I just picked up a pair of PCIe x8-to-x16 risers for my T610. It has PCIe Gen 2 x8 and x4 slots that I'll be adapting to my dual GTX 970 cards. Not sure yet if it will work, but don't see why not.

TBH I can't find that. All I can see is people say the slot is limited.

Oh and yes redundant 500watt PSUs

Well it looks like it has two PCI3 Gen3 x16 slots which is awesome, but this data suggests that it might not take full-size x16 cards, which is not awesome. :(

 

Also, it looks like this model came with either 350w PSU, or maybe a 550w PSU. Enough to power one GPU for sure, but stretching kinda thin trying to run two.

 

Modding old Dell servers is kind of a pain in the ass. They were very purpose-built, and don't take kindly to the aftermarket whims of enthusiasts that get their hands on them in this day and age. If you can, try to get your hands on a tower. They're a bit more forgiving to aftermarket endeavors.

 

I saved my T610 from the scrapyard after a client upgraded to a newer Dell EMC series server.

I have a few smaller cards I might me able to rig physically in there. Power I can also tap off another PSU I have. I am curious IF I attempt this do you think I'd kill the MOBO?
