  1. Got a friend into folding last week, and his points scored didn't go up much + no. of WUs remained stagnant. I was breaking my head wondering what had gone wrong, just checked the EOC stats and his account is being recognized just fine.
  2. Hey guys, Just wondering if you've tried enabling hardware-based GPU scheduling on your Win10 folding machines, and whether that's made any noticeable difference for you. For me, on a 1060 3GB, it took the production up from 700K PPD after the CUDA update to 850ish for a couple of days. This and the CUDA update together bring about 2x the 420k PPD I was making after the release of Core22. I can't confirm a performance impact long term, though, because I had to stop it soon after because of high power bills. You can check if this option is enabled by going to settings -> display setting
  3. Welcome! It's super impressive that you've managed to score ~2 million points via just CPU folding. I was in a similar range when I resumed folding last year - my laptop's GPU only made 35k PPD running 24/7, and it seemed like even a million points would be practically undoable(I found it hard to sleep at night with the fan whine). But here I am now, having contributed just over 100 million points to the cause. :) I'm a bit rusty on the topic, but I believe all the projects turn into something as the scientists only create projects based on compounds they need to predict and filter
  4. Have you entered your passkey for the Opteron client? Hardware wise, there's no way a 16 core Opteron should generate just 500PPD. I had an Athlon 64 3200+ that was putting out 500PPD back in 2006-7. From what I can tell, quad core Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPUs should be getting around 20-25k PPD, so yours should be doing much higher than that. (https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=2601, http://www.prowaretech.com/Computer/It/FoldingAtHomePPD) EDIT : Here's a thread on Opteron's F@H performance : https://hardforum.com/threads/improve-opteron-6200s-performa
  5. I've run 11 threads of BOINC on my 3600/B450m - DS3H for 11 months now. It seems to work fine for lower TDP processors.
  6. Yeah, I tried that. It wasn't thermal throttling in the first place, and I tried reinstalling the drivers and some other stuff too, to no avail. It's not fully dead, but I guess it's on it's deathbed - it's nearly useless at 405Mhz, and it could get worse as time passes.
  7. Aww, I missed the post asking about failed hardware! RIP to my laptop's Geforce 940M. I'd been folding on it for 9 months and it eventually started throttling to ~405Mhz within 30 seconds under any load, down from it's normal 1172Mhz.
  8. I said over the ear headphones, not wireless in-ear earphones. A decent pair of headphones/headsets will be 10x as immersive as your budget earphones. And they'll be more comfortable for prolonged use too.
  9. I'd suggest getting wireless over the ear headphones instead. I've bought 4 or 5 of these cheap wired headsets from Sony in the last 4 years, and they all somehow ended up falling apart. The Boat Rockerz 450 is pretty common here, and isn't that expensive either. Avoid the Moto escape series, I bought two and both of them cracked and split in half 8 or 9 months later.
  10. Hey, could you tell me how to get to this screen? I forgot the URL.
  11. Got 3539 on my iPhone 8 Plus - avg. fps : 21 And 1862 on my iPhone 6S Plus - avg. fps : 11
  12. Having a memory OC seems to really help out with these new CUDA WUs. I was doing ~650k estimated PPD as compared to ~400k pre-CUDA, which was an impressive leap by itself, but I noticed that my memory controller load was around 60% on avg. So I tried a mere +200Mhz on memory O/C, and now it's estimating 750k PPD for these 17406 WUs.
  13. As @vsral mentioned, most people undervolt for distributed computing as keeping the heat and noise low, and power bills sustainable for long term contributing are more important to them than peak performance. I'm running an undervolted Ryzen 3600 at base clock for BOINC. Is there any benefit to be had? Not particularly, in my experience, but you can try the built-in benchmark and compare the scores to see if it makes sense for you. Testing for stability basically boils down to how many tasks fail over a certain period of time as compared to usual. If you have 70 or more fai
