LTT Official Folding Month 2019!!!

Go to solution Solved by GOTSpectrum,

Alright guys, the time for locking this thread has come, can you all please use the Folding Community Board for all further talk.

 

Thank you all again for participating in the event.

 

Once the sheet is cleaned up I will edit this post to add the link to the spreadsheet.

 

 

@TVwazhere Can you please lock this thread for me.

Well it iS a GAMING OC card, after all. GPU-Z says it's pinging 200W folding and the stress test put it at a peak of 210W, 2010MHz (leveled off at 1950MHz), and 77C. As it's already pre OC and built for GAMING, I'm assuming I don't need to do much, if any overclocking. GAMING OH YEAH ?

 

But on a more serious note, I thought the 2060S was around 160-180W as well which is why these numbers confused me, but looking at the frequencies and temps... I don't know... I need to go watch a few more GN and JayzTwoCents videos about it I think.

Ahh, ok fair enough ?  

 

I was just basing it on my own card, which is a 1660 Ti Gaming OC, which actually comes in about 8w under TDP even when boosting (~112w (TDP = 120w))

I'd like to put my RX 590 in my HTPC and fold with it, but the case is half height so I'd have to get a new case like the Node 202. If i put it in my server, I'd have to replace the power supply as well because the 430W PSU there is at it's limit.

If you just want to see it put to good folding use, I'll volunteer to put it to use.  No graphics card in my current folder at this time.

Otherwise…get to upgrading that PSU.  :P

Depending on your card’s power-Limit and the over Clock applied it can go above 200W but with the WUs we’ve been getting these days my EVGA RTX 2060 Super XC Gaming has a max Power Limit of 215W. I’m running it at 215 W and a +65 on the Shader Clock:

I would double check that with nvidia-smi (don't remember the command to do it in windows) because my 2070 is oc'd and even though it has a 250w power limit when checking it, it doesn't pull more than 185 most of the time.

I see...

Depending which model it is you could probably run both the RX590 and RTX2060Super off it, assuming it has the PCIe connectors to do so. I run two much more demanding cards and top out at about 550W power consumption.

I've ran SLI, OCed 1080s and an OCed 8600K off a 650W PSU (EVGA G3) just fine. Unless they have a really hungry CPU, a 2060 and 590 should be fine on that PSU. Though like you said, depends on the model. 

here's where I flex that I may or may not be an idiot but anyways I'm running an EVGA 1600W T2 in my folding rig so defo on the better quality end of EVGA PSUs

Everything you need should be in here:

  • enable CoolBits 2 & 3 (values = 4 & 8, total =12)
  • enable persistence mode so power-limits stick between WUs
  • crank the power-limit to the maximum
  • apply a stable over-clock (offset) to the shader clock
  • set a manual fan speed if desired/required

My shader clock are you revering to core clock? And persistence mode is something I think it was missing. I am also having trouble viewing nvidia-settings through ssh.

Paused the BOINC client so that i don't get more WU:s for the CPU and unleashed  26 of my 32 cores of  my dual Xeon E5-2670 goodness to get about 130 000 PPD more. With some luck that is all that is needed to get me above top 200 again and stay there for the rest of the event ? ? ?

What sort of PPD is your 1660 Ti getting? I'm getting between 530 and 650K on mine at a non-OC'd 1950 MHz, averaging about 550K per day which feels kinda low tbh, but perhaps it's just the WU's I'm getting.

It's just the WUs.  I was initially worried once I got my 1660 Ti up and running, but here's the spread of PPD I've seen over the past 50 WUs, sorted from lowest PPD to highest.

if you don't have a display attached to the system you have to tell nvidia-settings the DISPLAY to use and the location of the Xauthority file. The display is easy as it is likely DISPLAY:0. You have to find the location of the Xauthority file:

sudo ps -ef | grep auth

then use with with the display for nvidia-settings:

DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/122/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -t -q [fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeedRPM

for example to display the speed in RPM of the first Fan detected or:

DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/122/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -a [gpu:1]/GPUGraphicsClockOffsetAllPerformanceLevels=65

to set the Graphics (Shader) clock offset (Overclock) to +65MHz for the 2nd GPU.

I usually keep the appropriate commands at the bottom of text file I use for the Build Logs for each system so I can paste them in as needed. There's likely a better way of applying these at startup but I haven't bothered to figure it out yet.

Here is the set of commands for one of the systems (Note that in this example I'm letting the Hybrid Card run it's own fan and have just commented out the FAN Control command):

#!/bin/sh
# RTX 2070 Super Hybrid Settings
nvidia-smi -i 0 -pm 1; nvidia-smi -i 0 -pl 240
#DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/125/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1
#DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/125/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -a [fan:0]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=90 -a [fan:1]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=90
DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/125/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUGraphicsClockOffsetAllPerformanceLevels=45
# RTX 2070 Super Settings
nvidia-smi -i 1 -pm 1; nvidia-smi -i 1 -pl 240
DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/125/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -a [gpu:1]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [gpu:1]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1
DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/run/user/125/gdm/Xauthority nvidia-settings -a [fan:2]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=70 -a [fan:3]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=50

Bigger number = moar better so it must increase the PPD somehow, I'd assume it's similar to the performance uptick with RGB. ?

Number of rads + number of fans also increases PPD, so naturally I filled every possible mount location on my LD PC-V8 with EK XTX rads and 3k rpm vadar fans and liquid cool my ram for 200% more performance!

 

I don't have RGB though, that is why I'm not in 1st place I'm assuming.

Interesting interview with @jonnyGURU at the Full Nerd where he debunks common PSU myths. The one I found interesting is most modern higher-end power supplies now have a fairly flat efficiency curve so the old 40-60% sweet spot adage is less applicable.

I don't have any RGB in my rig, perhaps I do need to track down a controller for my Corsair fans and use those. All my watercooling hardware is on my main rig though ?. But I do have a whole box of fans and plan to move my folding rig into my Air 540 so I know I can mount uh... at least 7 in there if I so desire. Also have a higher core-count CPU, at 10c/20t (disregard the fact that it runs at 1.7Ghz and is beaten by some quad cores in multicore tests) so that PPD should be hella optimal. 

Also ooooo I forgot to geek out over the Classified PSU, I didn't know EVGA made those. Am highkey sad they don't make Classified GPUs anymore either (haven't seen any since the 900 series). I run an X99 Classified, have two X58 Classified SLI boards, a Classified SR-2 (and another SR-2 that only boots with one CPU), my 1660 Ti, 1050 Ti, and 1050 are EVGA models (XC Ultra and two FTWs), and I have multiple EVGA PSUs and finally managed to yoink a gorgeous kit of EVGA RAM. I had two gorgeous 1080 SCs and a 980 Ti SC in the past as well. I may or may not be a slight fanboy of theirs....

To my knowledge EVGA has never made AMD AIB GPUs or AMD mobos, have they? Seem to be solidly teams green and blue, and they're usually very good at it.

You are correct to my knowledge that they've never made either an AMD Mobo or GPU but I would definitely like to see them take a stab at a TR4 board.

Realised what I wrote could be ambiguous. I'm only not folding while the other event is on (5 days duration from previous post), not for the duration of the folding month. Will still aim for days active overall. I'll be back but I'm not going to fight to keep it running while systems have other work to do. The other challenge is CPU only, really nice to have a cooler house running those. Even my 7920X system is using less power than a single 1080Ti...

 

I'm not a big fan of boinc, but the folding client makes it look good.

I don't know what your running for BOINC but you sure blew past me and 125 others in the BOINC stats yesterday!
