  1. Just checked and right now folding what must be the largest WU my 1070 has handled so far: almost 200K estimated points. It's 30+% already done, and still 4+ hours to go:
  2. I would think the overall scheme is a two-way multi-producer / multi-consumer scenario. So there could be one global distributed queue for WU's, and one global distributed queue of clients picking them up, then submitting their results to one global distributed queue of results for servers to pick up. Whether it is implemented like that I really don't know, but the behavior of the clients seems to clearly not match that.
  3. Definitely the client needs some work. Almost always whenever I see the GPU has not been folding for some time, I stop the client, restart it, and almost always consistently get a WU immediately. This should not be happening. The overall scheme should not make the clients seemingly get stuck with some server(s) which run out of WU's, while other servers may have WU's pending and no client is picking them up. Will check and play with these scripts to see how much my average PPD might improve.
  4. This is an IBM Model M "Manufactured for IBM by Lexmark", as indicated in the tag on the bottom. It is from April 1994, part #82G2383. It's a third generation model as detailed here: https://deskthority.net/wiki/IBM_Enhanced_Keyboard Sports the wonderful buckling spring switches. Not selling it at all, hopefully this post or I won't be banned here for sharing these details Here a teaser photo of the keycaps, and the label on the bottom:
  5. Maybe you don't know about some of the greatest keyboards of all time? This is an IBM Model M. Certainly old, but it's one of the best keyboards ever. I used Model M's back in the late 80's - early 90's, got this original one just couple of years ago after trying pretty much everything out there. To my fingers nothing really compares to the feel and sound of an original IBM Model M (for daily usage and typing, not for gaming.) My PC is not that old, but also not brand new, has an i7-6700K and a 1080 TI. For folding I've been using mostly another PC build with an AMD 3600 and a 1070 though
  6. Continuing these recursive photos, not same class of drink but Jägermeister is still delicious
  7. After 4+ hours, finishing one of the largest WU's my 1070 has crunched: 141K points estimate. In the previous days there was one with 150K+ points, those must have been the largest so far:
  8. Side panel on the Cougar QBX is not transparent, so there is no RGB or concern about internal looks on this build. Reason to put that "ultimate GPU sag solution" was not aesthetics, but caring about shipping this PC and keeping that corner of the GPU complete immobilized.
  9. I had tested the CPU before with prime95 actually. There's no overclocking on this PC, everything completely stable. The stock GPU has also shown to be completely stable under Cinebench R15, R20, Superposition, Furmark, Time Spy, Firestrike. Reduced the clocks on the GPU mostly to reduce thermals a bit.
  10. Oops sorry mess up submitting previous comment. Saw some build photos so sharing mine here as well. This is a build I made for my sister, haven't shipped it to her yet because of the situation. It's a Cougar QBX case, with an AMD 3600, and an Nvidia GTX 1070. Folding with the side panel on, just removed it for the photo. The case is elevated a bit, and without the bottom filter in place. Adding the filter and/or removing that elevation will increase the GPU temperature quite a bit, by at least 5 degrees. PS. You can see details about the "ultimate GPU sag solution" (that

  12. Folding of a WU from project 14541 completed problem-free. In fact got another WU from the same project right afterwards:
  13. Folding just with one of my PCs and the Nvidia 1070 for a couple of days now. The 1070 has been underclocked by -100 MHz all along, both for cores and memory. So far ok at more than 23%, will report later if it finishes problem-free.
  14. But guess what, incidentally it's project 14541. Loud sweating here as well
