  1. Yeah, ive gone through at set a lot of my settings to "fast" and it doesn't seem to make a huge difference.
  2. Yeah im using Opitifine, sorry i should have said that in the post.
  3. Im using Optifine yes, ive updated my drivers, and my temps for CPU and GPU are at 55C so pretty good
  4. Im playing right now and have been for a bit and both are sitting at 55-56C
  5. No, I haven't OCed anything on my system yet.
  6. So I've been having this issue where for some reason, Minecraft just wont run at high frame rates. No, its not with shaders or ray-tracing on. Its just normal Minecraft at 1440p. I only get 40-55FPS and maybe I starch 90 if i'm lucky (I don't know sometimes its higher and sometimes its lower). But i cant for the life of me find out what the problem is, I allow Minecraft to use 8gb of ram, which it usually uses around 4.5gb, my 2080TI is usually only at about 13% usage, and my 3800x is only at 10% and im not really noticing that any given cores are say maxing out (which if it was maxing out
  7. Thanks! I might just not do CPU as you said, or drop its power consumption. Ive also thought about getting a tower cooler for it as at the moment it only has the stock cooler.
  8. Thanks! Yeah im using the stock cooler that came with my 3800x but im not over-clocking it. Although im considering getting a tower cooler for it to help with temps. Im in an ATX case so that helps. and for sure after this im going to go through and replace things like the thermal paste. Actually come to think of it doing that now might not be the worst idea, its been about 10 months... My GPU is hitting around 80C and the fans are at about %70. But I think im gonna drop the power target like you said. Big thanks for the help!
  9. So I participated in the Folding earlier this year (March I think) for Covid-19. And back then it was around 2 weeks or so. I want to participate again, and i want to give it my all with my 2080TI and my 1080. But i'm a little worried about the effects on the silicon for running them that hot for that long... I know that things like graphics cards that were used for mining are often bad because they worked doing hard tasks 24/7 for long periods of time. Should I be worried about messing up my hardware? Should I only have it go on medium to help with temps? For reference i'm running a t
  10. Dam I keep going in and out of top 100. it was a goal for me to be top 100 so we will see if i get it! But either way for my first time doing folding full time (having my systems running 24/7 for a while) this is pretty good. Keep going everyone you are almost there! And HUGE thanks to GOTSpectrum and the others helping to make this possible. This awesome event wouldn't be possible without you!
  11. Everyone talks about drink of the day. I'm a teen so I cant do alcohol. So here is a little simple fruit punch i made today for anyone who is interested: 2 parts Hawaiian punch (the juice stuff that comes in a big ol' bottle) 1 part ginger-ale a little under one part, around 3/4 or so pineapple juice. Has a nice fruit punch but with a nice kick from the pineapple and a light fizz from the soda. If anyone actually tries it let me know Happy folding anyone! Hope you are all well/safe! And i wanna give a special thanks for all the people behind the sense who are doing things like
  12. Holy crud top 100! Its crazy how much power i had laying around that i could be helping with! To everyone reading this: I hope you are staying safe, washing your hands, and that everyone you know is safe and doing the same. It doesn't matter where you are on the ranks. The fact that you are willing to put some of your power toward the cause is amazing. Thankyou to all the amazing people participating in this even, and all the people risking getting infected and helping people. Hope you all have a nice and safe day.
  13. top 200! Thats awesome for 2 gaming machines running in the background. Having trouble getting WUs though, i check on them whenever i can and only around %30 of the time do they have WUs going/finishing. Wish i started right on the first day and not halfway through the 2nd day. I would be more ahead. But hey still 2 weeks to go! Good luck to everyone, and I hope we are helping the cause!
  14. Update: Sorry i know i already commented on this post. But i was watching todays WAN show and they talk about it there: at 51:50 They say that they are following all recommendations and will continue to follow and give updates as time goes on. It is still 5 months out so we are not sure if it will be fine, or if it will be bad.
  15. This is kind of just a stupid little question that probably has an easy answer somewhere on the website. But i was buying tickets for LTX and there is an option for the merch pack. I was just wondering if it would be available AT the event. Like could i buy it at thee door? The wording on the website made it seem as so. But i wanted to clarify. Sorry if this is stated somewhere.
