  1. Oh ok that makes sense it does mean I will struggle to have activity for at least 20 days for the folding month.
  2. I have a gtx 1060 3gb and it can do 400k+ ppd but I keep getting WUs that take around 8 hours to complete meaning it takes 2-3 days to complete and getting hardly any points, other than running 24/7 or intentionally causing a bsod is there anything I can do? I used to get much smaller WUs that would only take around 3 hours that I could complete the same day. However, my gpu is overclocked more than it used to be.
  3. I have a very janky setup for discord at the moment. I want to use my headphones (beyerdynamic dt 770 pro) when gaming but it means I need discord to output through the headphones as otherwise I won't hear anything. As I don't have a microphone on my desktop at all I made a second discord account and use that to connect to the same voice channel do some muting (mute all outputs on my ipad and only myself on my pc) and use the second account on my iPad to get audio in. This solution is somewhat manageable but not ideal as I think it uses more internet and my internet can't cope as its rather sl
  4. Yeah I just got an email saying that I had completed my first task, thanks for the help :)
  5. Hmm, ok. That would make sense, however it does make it difficult to know if I have set everything up correctly.
  6. Oh ok, I've taken off my overclock (+150/+450) and I will see if that is more stable now Edit: it is more stable now, no errors since I removed the overclock
  7. Can't access stats, the error below comes up every time I go to look at it. This has been there for multiple hours.
  8. Some of my einstein@home tasks fail with computation errors. What can I do about this? Gamma Ray pulsar binary search R5 1600, gtx 1060 3gb
  9. Nothing in the log. It was about an hour in and its also a 7min TPF which I believe is quite high from the research I have done so far
  10. @Gorgon Do you know what happened here? It started as an 8 hour ETA, then suddenly it has now decided that it will take 50 mins and 570kPPD. Actually, it has now decided to go back 5% and take 7 hours again. Is that something wrong with the software or do I have some stability issues or something else?
  11. I've managed to get only to 40kPPD with a R5 1600, using 10/12 threads, which is fine but the GPU nets 9x more points. I guess GPUs are far more suitable for the type of workload folding is, so do a much better job of it
  12. I do have it in my bedroom but only around 50% fans and 70°C. I do often put music on and use headphones quite often when gaming so I never hear more than a hum. I understand its an endurance thing but I think I'm only going to fold during winter because its really nice having some extra heat in a victorian house with single glazed windows and only around 15°C during winter.
  13. I have pushed it to 2000MHz on the core since and its still at 70°C. (370kPPD) Fan profile v
  14. I've put it to +75/+500 for now. Making the core 1974MHz, I might take it a bit further, maybe to 2000. At the moment I have the GPU on 350kPPD and the cpu at 50kPPD which isn't bad
