LTT Official Folding Month 2018!!!

Ok so after a wait that is way too long. Here are the much anticipated results of folding month!!!

Before we get into bragging rights I just wanted to thank all of you for participating. As I have mentioned many times this was by far and away a much bigger turnout than I think anyone expected. And as just us here as part of the event, not event including the rest of the LTT team which was also folding at a killer rate. We earned almost 2.9 billion (yes BILLION!) points and completed 76003 work units! and because of all of that we were able to climb the team back to #12 overall which I haven't seen since I started folding years ago! I also want to give an even bigger shout out to @Ben Quigley and @Gorgon Who not only volunteered themselves to help when it came to stat tracking and everything but essentially stepped up way beyond that to basically take over and not only provide all of you with daily updates and troubleshooting help but went way beyond that to simplify the process of everything that needed to be done in the background. Trust me they put in some hard hours and deserve as much recognition as possible. All I had was an idea to fold for a month and the two of them really stepped up to make this as good as it was so be sure to thank them where ever you can.聽

Now into some of the more juicy stuff that I know you have all been waiting for...

When it comes to points production. There really aren't any surprises in who the top three are. They might have traded blows a few times but coming into the last week or so it was fairly set in stone who was going to take the podium here.聽

In 1st place with a massive 249,018,046 points (to put that in perspective most teams don't fold that in a month) is the king himself, your royal highness @King Poet!!!

In the next two slots on the points podium you will find two people that before this month weren't even folding.

In 2nd with 225,872,887 points we have @Tomerrs which is even more impressive when you consider that he was only folding for 28 out of the 30 days in the month (what would happen if he was folding the extra 2 days we wont know until next folding month...)

And in 3rd with 211,812,417 points we have @jakkuh_t who as we know was using hardware barrowed from LMG but just as encouragement for the rest of you next time there is nothing wrong with that. Just don't get fired or break the law and we don't have a problem with anyone's hardware you fold with.

Now for the podium for most Work Units. Believe it or not this is actually different since work units are dependent on the hardware used its possible to get a bunch of small work units and crank them out really fast for less points. NACL folding is probably the easiest way of doing this but in the end its all work done.

In 1st with a seemingly excessive count of 4181 work units we have @givingtnt my guess is that a lot of NACL and CPU folding went into this one because that is over 1000 higher than either of the other two spots on our podium for this one.

In 2nd with 2978 WU's is @Ishimuro

And because we cant seem to get rid of him @King Poet takes 3rd with 2788WU's likely because of having so many different slots folding all at once.

And our last catagory is one that is a bit more unusual compared to the other two considering how many of you here are new to folding but it is most improved. Basically whoever climbed their way highest in the ranks over the course of the competition. The way we estimated this (since some many of you were brand new to folding let alone the LTT team.) was by assigning everyone who wasn't on the team on the 1st an initial rank of 11000 since at the time the team had roughly that many members. And here are your results.

In 1st is no surprise considering he came in second overall is @Tomerrs who climbed 10970 ranks on team LTT. The only surprise here is that he wasn't already folding for us. Good to know we now have another powerhouse on our team from now on!!!

2nd is another one to expect with @jakkuh_t who climbed 10967 ranks on the team. To be expected with the power we all know he had access too. Hopefully next time we can get more of the LMG office involved so that there might be a battle for who gets to use what hardware.

And in 3rd by only one spot is @_Rlocke who came in just under 2nd with 10966. Didn't think that battle was going to come so close highly impressive.

And finally I want to do another round of thankyou's to the rest of the people who made this happen. Obviously @Ben Quigley and @Gorgon again for the amazing work they did. (really cant emphasize enough how much they made this happen). Also to @Imbellis @seoz and @Ryois who helped out in the chaos of the first week stat tracking. Also to @Whiskers and @Ryan_Vickers who helped come up with the badges and make that happen for all of you. And also to @James for getting us on the WAN show to get the word out and @jakkuh_t for getting the word out even further with the giveaway that LMG did for the folding community. And last but definitely not least want to thank the rest of you for being a part of this team I know we say it as a folding community but this proved it to be more true than ever it really does take each one of you to make this team what it is and to have brought us back to 12th overall in the world for folding teams and 3rd for the month in production so again thanks to each and every one of you with out each of you no matter how small your contribution this team wouldn't be whole.

Now the part that I know you have all been waiting for here is a link to the results sheets that we have been keeping the whole time so that you can all nerd out over the numbers. I may do some editing over time to make things look nicer but this is the final product. If you find an issue in it for some reason pm myself and copy @Ben Quigley and @Gorgon and we will address you concern.

Ohh, I didn't get the memo. 馃榾

Finally got the new motherboard in after shipping delays. Folding on Windows 10 for a few days then I'll install Linux as the primary OS with Windows 10 as the secondary boot.

Had to borrow a 4GB DDR4 2133 stick from another system. I was going to buy another memory kit but even Windows 10 seems to run folding OK with single channel memory and there was no noticeable drop in performance on the Linux system it was borrowed from.

Going to run Linux on this one later. Which distro works best w/ FAH? My preferred distro is Manjaro, but I had issues getting it to work.

Going to run Linux on this one later. Which distro works best w/ FAH? My preferred distro is Manjaro, but I had issues getting it to work.

Is that the HAF-X Evo? Nice

Lots of howtos on running Ubuntu. I've been a SuSE user for years but there's also issues running F@H on SuSE so I gave Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) a try. Not too much of a learning curve. I used the Desktop variant for my first system and the Long-Term Stability (LTS) server variant for my more recent version.

Biggest challenge is getting the headless mode to work without the use of a HDMI EDID dongle so the o/c commands can be run.

I'm doing a detailed Linux Build Log for this system once I finish the Windows versus Linux Performance testing.

Had so much fun during the F@H month I told myself I'd get a full-time machine set up with old hardware I had (so I could actually use my gaming rig for, well, gaming again...).

Well, got it up and running today!聽 I also decided to give Linux a go so it's running on Ubuntu.聽 It was surprisingly easy to get everything running.聽 The only hiccup I had was figuring out that OpenCL didn't install with the Nvidia Linux drivers.聽 Oh, and that the GPUs.txt file didn't install with the client/control, so had to get that so it would actually detect my GPU.

Once those were solved it was off to the races!

It aint pretty, but it works.聽 i7 2700k and GTX 1070 in an old Antec 900 case; should be good for a solid 650k PPD.

As long as you鈥檙e not hardcore into CPU Folding single channel should be sufficient :)

Pfft, then why am I bothering doing Windows vs Linux聽testing? :D聽I guess for verification purposes

Yes Linux guide! something definitely needed for us plebs.

Arrrrrrgh - Ubuntu install from Hell. 12 hours later and I'm finally folding on the new system. Had issues 1st using the iGFX for the initial install then getting X Windows to work on the NVidia card. Then after I finally got it built had my trusty 22" NEC Spectraview monitor's DVI input die. Then after installing for the 4th time the packages got corrupted and folding would run for about twenty minutes then fail with a bizarre error and hang the system.

5th time appears to be the charm and its been folding a WU for almost an hour so I _THINK_ it might be stable now.

HFM is collecting data and it's being monitored by Zabbix so I'll have a nice comparison in a couple of days.

Then I get to tear it apart and rebuild with the RTX Drivers in the Define R4 but at least when the Define C goes on sale I wont have to reinstall again.

Yes, I鈥檓 almost as much of a fan boy of the higher end Fractal cases as I am of Noctua fans.

I just wish Fractal had聽left the power supply shroud out of the Define S2 otherwise it would be a perfect case for a 2 slot folding rig. Voluminous chassis with a straight airflow paths and support for 3 x 140mm front and聽1 x 140mm bottom intake fans and聽3 x 140mm top and 1 x 140mm rear exhaust fans with sound dampening.

I like the clean estherics and lack of windowed models as I鈥檇 rather have another panel coated in sound absorbing material than plexi or tempered glass.

I want to try out the C with the front panel removed and the dust filter in-place and see if I can get the same airflow with reduced front聽fan speeds for even lower noise. And I鈥檓 contemplating removing the power supply shroud to see the impact to temperatures and hence the performance of the GPUs

I believe it's just held on by rivets. It also has ventilation cutout throughout the shroud minus the front plate

Gamers nexus has shown examples of it making a difference (H200 where it's literally right against the PSU shroud) and cases that it made no difference (H700i review where it was far away) I think they had an instance where even far away, the ventilation mattered but i cant recall which review that was

I examined the case in detail last week at a local Bricks and Mortar store I try to give as much business as possible to.

The shroud is held on by approximately 15 rivets that should be able to be drilled out and removed. The three at the rear of the chassis will have to be reinstalled as they also hold the expansion card bracket.

The shroud is perforated but only above the PSU so that can be installed upside down and suck air from the chassis if desired. The perforations only extend slightly past a 160mm power supply.

Further complicating matters the base of the chassis has bends, likely to add structural reinforcement, between the base sections for the power supply and drive cage/fan mount location. These bends restrict mounting the fan closer to the end of the power supply but it should be OK.

My plan is to run the new board in the Define 4 with both cards for a month or two until I can get a C on sale then move the system over to the C (with new fans which I'm ordering) then test with and without the shroud to see the difference.

From my experience with the Define S adding the bottom fan to direct cool air into the lower card resulted in a 5C drop in the lower card and the upper as well as it is getting cooler hot air exhausted from the lower. Though the PSU does obstruct the rear GPU fan over the GPU it still has 1 1/2 to 2 slots of a gap to breathe.

PSU Shrouds reduce the breathing room for the lower card but they also impact front intake fan placement.

The other change between the Define S and S2 is the removal of the 120/140 side panel fan mount. This was removed on the R series between the 4 and 5 versions. It too can have an impact on cooling performance but less of one compared to a bottom fan. As the fans on the GPUs draw air into the cards Side fans are more effective if configured as an intake but they do not have dust filters and so are providing a nice direct path for dust straight to the fins on the GPUs.

Side fans are taken for granted. Honestly if done correctly it has more of an impact than a bottom fan (like my level 10 GT that has flaps to direct the air) for both the bottom and top card.聽

I think that was due more to the case being a negative pressure design than anything, and that would allow air to be drawn in from everywhere, as opposed to a neutral or positive pressure where it is pushed out, so the GPU is getting fresher air, depending on the configuration

Noob question, but how do we enable the badgers聽badges?

We can't necessarily enable it, you would have to PM Whiskers for it to be place to your account. See below for more details:

聽It might take a while since they might be working on the Folding badges and other forum related stuff. And of course, real life.

So to clairfy, each individual user that did folding month would have to PM an admin for the folding month badge? I wasn't sure if that was how it would work or if an admin would go around and give everyone who qualifies the badges at once.


I enjoy tech, gaming, and promoting the metric system.

If I didn't already have a bunch of Windows programs, It'd be Linux for me.
