  1. In addition to the behind-the-scenes folks already mentioned in the post itself, thank you, @GOTSpectrum, for all of your effort this year. The blog posts have been a pleasure to read through, and in a year like this one, having something to follow along with and look forward to has been a real treat. I really appreciate everything that you, and everyone else, did to get this event organized and functional. Looking forward to next year!
  2. I had a Zotac GTX 970 kick it during this event. One of the fans had its bearing go out entirely while I was away, and the card was running extremely hot when I got back. It now produces significant memory artifacting when used for display and kicks out errors whenever I attempt to fold on it.
  3. Bit late to check the results, but looks like I landed just barely outside the top 10 this year. Looks like I'm going to have to try to pick up a card or two sometime in 2021 to make up the slack for the next event. I ended up not being able to be active on the forums as much as I would've liked toward the end due to life getting busy, but I had fun with it regardless! Hope everyone else did too.
  4. I finally got around to recruiting some mercenaries in an effort to combat the ongoing breaker box issues in my apartment, but alas, I've only managed to squeak ~300k PPD out of it in a way that wouldn't require extra investment on my part while being sustainable through the end of the event. Looks like I probably won't be breaking back into top 10 this year! It was a good run.
  5. noooooooooooooooo my precious 10th spot! Very nicely done @LAR_Systems I blame having to turn off CPU folding on my machines to prevent breakers from flipping when I start doing other things in the apartment. I think I'm going to have to start exploring alternatives...
  6. I think you forgot to mention my name, but I'm fine with holding the title of "the gatekeeper" for now! I doubt I'll be able to hold it for the whole event, but I'll fend off Macaw2000 as long as I can.
  7. Do you accept bribes in the form of old 400/500 series Nvidia graphics cards? They're compatible with the new CUDA patch! At least, I think they are? None of my systems will bring them up, even with CSM/Legacy boot enabled...
  8. I don't know if it's normal, but it happens to me on one of my systems. I find that I can pretty reliably adjust them when folding is paused, but not while it's active - so try pausing to adjust memory clocks!
  9. So close I can taste it. Tomorrow will be my highest PPD of the event, I hope it'll push me into top 10 - if not I don't think it'll be happening this year.
  10. I feel like this is opinion is pretty commonly held by folks who work with data centers, IT, or digital security of any kind. IoT devices are genuinely terrifying from a long-term support/security perspective.
  11. Dang, I apparently had a really rough day for points for some reason. I was hoping to get into top 10 at some point during this event, but that won't happen if the current trend keeps up!
  12. Nope, you're good to close after applying! As far as I'm aware this adjusts the same profiles used by the nvidia control center, so the driver will handle it for you.
