Folding on an Intel NUC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an Intel Celeron J3455 Quad core, RAM: 8GB. I have another one that is a dual core Celeron and has 4GB of ram. I can leave them running in the garage by the modem 24/7 but only if it is going to actually contribute.

Is it worth folding on these machines or should I just donate them to charity?

Every bit helps, if they have discrete gpus that would be even better. 

 

As far as I know they should be able to contribute, and with a passkey will net you a decent amount of points.

 

Charity doesn't hurt either.

There's also boinc, which I've heard will benefit from CPUs a bit more. Folding is great if you have spare GPUs. And what's great is you can run both on the same PC, so you can fold on the GPU and run boinc on the CPU.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I have 2 NUC's and they regularly get cpu jobs to run.  Mine are NUC5i7 and NUC8i7.  And I've noticed that on my other systems with GPU's , they seem to get more CPU jobs than GPU, but both are running most of the time.  Its easy to setup so you may as well launch it and see what it does.
