  1. @leadeater here are some of the runtimes I've seen for finished WCG MIP tasks - ranges from 36 mins to 2 hours 25 mins, with the average around 1:15- 1:45 on a Ryzen 3600 @ 4.1Ghz. Also, there's a task that's been running for an hour and 10 mins, but is only 30% complete. There does seem to be a lot of variation in runtimes.
  2. I kind of stumbled upon a way to do this. If you 'suspend' a project it doesn't communicate with the servers anymore. I downloaded both WCG and SiDock tasks, set up the bunker, and suspended WCG to upload the SiDock tasks that I'd finished without uploading the finished WCG tasks. It's not a perfect solution, because if you suspend SiDock tasks they seem to lose their progress, but thankfully as that's the Marathon event the timing of releasing them doesn't matter as much - so you shouldn't need to suspend them at any point.
  3. I'm going to try and put another 12-16 threads on SiDock@home, at least once this Javelin throw is complete. After that I'm going to just run SiDock all the way till the end.
  4. I've put a 11 year old laptop with an i5-430M, 2 threads @ 1.6Ghz on the Marathon. Wonder how long it'll take to finish each work unit.
  5. Nope, not yet. Although the 2nd Javelin throw date has been announced
  6. Hey, are we going to attempt the first javelin throw or not?
  7. Yeah, I checked after I saw your post and got a few more. I don't have a problem with the BOINC cached jobs, thankfully, even after bunkering for WCG. I only got 5 tasks, but I think it's for the best because I do need to restart my computer from time to time and I don't want to lose too much progress on those SiDock tasks. Also, I thought you'd like to know, on one core of a R5 3600 @ 4Ghz, the first task I ran finished in 3 hours 54 mins. It's the same application you've posted runtimes for, CurieMarieDock.
  8. I'm not getting any new tasks for SiDock@home, and there don't seem to be any available either, going by the server statistics. Guess I'll just bunker WCG in the meantime. Thanks @Gorgon for the guide to bunkering.
  9. There won't be any damage to your GPU directly unless you push it past the temperature or the power limits, or overclock it. I've run Folding@home on my laptop for 2 full years, and no degradation of any sort happened in that period until I tried to overclock the VRAM. Even after that, it eventually recovered by itself so... The thermal paste degraded within 2-3 years when I wasn't using it properly, but this time it was fine all the way till the end. What can happen is the power adapter can fail from sustained power load(laptops aren't designed to run under heavy loads 24/7), and
  10. Hmm, hadn't thought of that before. From my perspective, it was a game that ran fine on my desktop w/ 16GB of RAM and a hard drive, but when one of my sticks failed and I had to manage with 8GB of RAM for a couple of days, it was a stutterfest. FH3 wasn't playable on my laptop(specs in sig, had an SSD) either, but FH4 was - and can be played even on a laptop with 8GB RAM and a 5400RPM HDD -
  11. 8GB of RAM isn't enough to play FH3 properly, because the port is pretty poorly optimized. It would work well on 16GB of RAM, and FH4 should be fine on your PC - I used to play both on an old computer of mine - i5 3450, 16GB of RAM(FH3 stopped working when I went back to 8 temporarily), and a GTX 1060 3GB.
  12. I can put somewhere between 4-8 threads on the Marathon project, maybe upto 20 in the middle but that won't be full-time. I think I can allocate my 1060 to a project if there's a GPU specific project announced, though.
  13. Mine Monero for a month and convert it to Dogecoin on any exchange/flipper.
  14. I stopped folding for a while after my lappy died thanks to a power surge that struck whilst it was bravely crunching a work unit(RIP). Now, COVID cases have touched a global all time high here in India, and I've just got out of a toxic relationship that was grinding me to the ground. What better time than now to give back to the world & humanity, to resume folding again? I've put 2 devices, my 1060 and Surface Pro 2, on Folding@home. Phones on DreamLab, and if I have any unutilized CPU power, that'll go to BOINC.
  15. Your time calculation could be derailed by a lot of simple things, such as : i) The 6800 samples not boosting/not achieving their rated clock speed ii) The users doing something else in the background, say, playing a less-demanding game like Fortnite or Minecraft or watching 4K HD videos iii) The users turning off their computer at nights, without noticing(or caring) that the WU hasn't been finished yet iv) Some other problem with the computer causing the Folding core to shut down and restart multiple times in the time it takes to finish the WU.
