    I still don't see how people continuously say macbook are overpriced. Maybe they were several years back, but they aren't overpriced for sure at the moment

    Henry got a reaction from SkyFall in How "Worth It" is CPU folding? A Temp Question   
    1. Is it power efficient compared to GPU folding? No.

    2. Is it better than not folding at all? Yes.

    3. Are those temps perfectly safe? Yes. Calm down bro. It's not even 70C yet. If your CPU is running at 70C, then you shouldn't fold.

    That isn't even relevant to the topic being discussed here.

    Henry reacted to Kavawuvi in 3+ GPUs with Skylake?   
    The reason for this is because SLI has a requirement that each card run at 8x or better. It's set by NVIDIA rather than any sort of performance ceiling, so there's really no way around it.

    I went with this because I read that you should have at least one CPU core per GPU.

    Henry reacted to petem in PCIe 2.0 for F@H?   
    This is from the folding mother ship people (Bruce, in this case):
     
    "There's a discussion around here somewhere considering running a GPU at 1x or 2x and the general consensus seems to be that it'll be slow. The whole point of good FAH software design is to make sure that whatever I/O needs to be done can be overlapped with the processing that the GPU does. As long as the GPU is busy (almost) all of the time, the I/O speed isn't important. 
     
    If you could reduce the I/O speed to any setting, there would be a "minimum" speed where it becomes very important. That minimum speed isn't the same for all cases, though. A fast GPU and a slow GPU will probably have a different minimum speed. Different projects will have different minimum speeds. 16x and 8x are probably more than most people need and 1x is probably less that most people need. If you happen to try 2x or 4x you can report your results."
     
    In my experience, I haven't seen much ppd difference between PCIe 2.0 8x or 16x vs PCIe 3.0 8x or 16x, but the only rigorous analysis I have done was to compare the same GPU in a PCIe 3.0 16x slot vs an 8x slot.  The 16x was less than 2% more ppd over a 2 month period.
     
    Note that the slot bandwidth primarily affects the loading and unloading of the data from the card, not the actual folding calculations performance.  The general concensus is that 8x and 16x slots are plenty fast in either PCIe 2.0 or 3.0, and there are reports from people running GPUs on PCIe 3.0 4x without taking a significant, if any, performance hit.

    He's an admin at https://foldingforum.org, the official folding@home forum run by Pande Lab - the group at Stanford responsible for folding@home.
     
    Any server or project issues/updates are posted there, as well as a number of people posting problems they may be experiencing with a specific work unit, gpu, driver version, etc., so it's a good place to start when you are having folding problems, or for getting answers to the more technical questions, or just browsing to learn more about folding in general.  I'm not sure if anyone monitors the forum full time; they may have other priorities so they may not always answer quickly, but I've found them to be very helpful.
     
    You'll need to join to post, but it's easy and free.

    EDIT: @LinusTech I'd rather you have a premium channel for early access than Vessel. Only reason ppl go on vessel is for you

    Just got this email from Vessel.

    The fact that Linus is all over this email, makes me think 99% of people on Vessel only go on Vessel because of Linus...
    BTW this picture made me realize exactly how small Linus is, especially since Dennis, who's asian, is taller than him (or same height, can't tell because they aren't standing straight)

    EVGA.


    For power supplies, I prefer Seasonic (gold standard for reliability, and expensiveness), Corsair, EVGA. Also I stick with 80+ bronze or better

    To clarify, this is not a Channel Super Fun series. That was a mistake in their copy. Nerd Sports is its own entity under Linus Media Group, and all future copy will reflect that.

    This is a content idea that we had that would not have been possible without external support, and Vessel stepped up to the plate to support its creation.

    Official comment will come soon I'm sure...

    Give me a break. They output so much quality content over their fellow tech youtubers. FOR FREE. Cut them some slack. Now if they delivered crappy videos, then I'd be pissed.

    They got me into building computers years ago, so thumbs up to them for their current ongoing success.
