LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19

Go to solution Solved by GOTSpectrum,

This event has ended and I recommend you guys head over to the Folding Community Board for any general folding conversation.

I think Jeff Bezos just let AWS loose on FAH.... This single account has 16k active clients, and by itself, with no help from the rest of the "awsfolds" team, would be the third highest team in PPD currently.... Wow.

 

Started folding on 3/21/20, and is already number 8 all time. Thats an incredible amount of power.

He's making it more difficult for me to get WUs? That's unacceptable! This is a pain...
 

Jk, good that the work's getting done, just wish some of it would be used to keep my clients busy

Don’t let the big guys get you down.  The curecoin aisc miners have been pwning for a long time now.  Me I’m just happy it’s getting done.  Go Jeff!

I know, curecoin has been doing work. But... this single account, is smashing them, hard. Like, thats an entirely new level of commitment. He basically just made Microsofts backend donation of 5 Azure servers (which is fantastic, don't get me wrong at all) look like total childs play. This is a massive amount of compute power. Amazing, just amazing.

I'm curious to know if anybody has a full custom water cooled rig running on this and how thermals are performing. Participating in this event has made me want to build a new computer with a custom loop in it. 

I am running a full custom loop, on the following gear:
 

3950x (Stock + 0.075v undervolt)

Asus Crosshair VIII Formula (no need to add loop for VRMs but did it anyway)

64GB 3600MHz Trident-Z

Asus Strix 2080ti OC (standard clocks)

 

Soft-tubed loop consisting of EK blocks + 2 Rads - 120mm between 2080ti & VRM / CPU; 360mm between CPU and D5 pump

 

CPU temps are high 80's, graphics card high 50's. Water temp mid 30s.

 

I am only running folding on 6 cores + video card, have left my old 1950x (with 1080ti) to do most of this duty.

... T4 only available on several region... just try different region, I use us-central1 and us-west1

I using centos8 - 40GB (a little bit overkill I think, but It need more than 10GB - CUDA driver is 5GB) ...


You're welcome, just glad to bring another people to fold on the cloud... but DON'T FORGET to delete your instance on time, or else google will charge you!

You don't need the CUDA SDK for cloud folding, just install 'gcc', 'make', the latest Nvidia driver and the FAH client. For no warnings GCC have to be the same version as the one that build the kernel.

This is based on a test run on Google Cloud with T4's and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - 10 GB disk. (With this OS I know the GCC warning can be skipped as the GCC version is only a minor difference)

I'm still waiting to see when the site decides to give me an estimated cost.  I set a budget alert, is that enough or will I need to stop early to be absolutely sure?

From my experience, cost can be delayed up to a day. I don't know if longer...
My advice would be to look at the hourly charge, add that up, and then stop early for any possible cost you forgot.

It's only the 8th and we have more points so far then all of last month (which was a record high).

Quick question. @GOTSpectrum or to anyone who knows.

When does the event end?

The frist post says the following: "Starts March, 27th (00:00 GMT) Ends April, 10th (23:59 BST)" That's 15 days but the post also says the event last 14 days.

If I remember correctly the post once said "Ends April, 10th (00:00 [GMT or BST]) and that would be correct for ~14 days ignoring the change to summer time.

So... Does it end tonight at 23:59 BST (in 15h 22m) or tomorrow at 23:59 BST (in 39h 22m)? 🤔


I'm curios as I've finally received my new Corsair Obsidian 1000D and I would like to start rebuilding my PCs 😁 But I wont turn them off during the event...

The first post says the following: "Starts March, 27th (00:00 GMT) Ends April, 10th (23:59 BST)"

 

This means this event ends 1 minute before 00:00 Saturday morning, April 11th BST. In other words April 11, 00:59 UTC. 15 hours from now.

I got a 3700X PBO, 200mhz auto OC  and a slight undervolt, with a 1080ti under water. I pulled the sidepanel from my In Win 303 for better airflow. The GPU is doing very well at 46 degrees, but the CPU is running pretty toasty at around 84-87 C. I pulled a 2 cores from folding so at max its folding with 6 + 7 cpu Slots and 1 core for the GPU slot. That helped a bit, but I suspect I need to repaste after the event is done. I am also very tempted to try out Der8auers new OC bracket, which should help a lot with temps in non-constant workflows.

Dang some of these servers are chuggin'.  Even uploading to azure, an only 8 meg chunk result just took 10 minutes to upload.

What water block do you have on the CPU? block fins all clear etc... as you must be getting close to throttling?

Custom loop for foldy (yeah found a name for it now) :

 

X470 aorus ultra gaming

seasonic platinum p-1200 (yeah judge me 😋)

Radeon Vega 56 with an watercool heatkiller IV waterblock
Ryzen 5 2600 with an aqua computer cuplex kryos block

one 360mm rad and a 420mmrad all in push configuration with standard noctua

D5 pump and aqua computer reservoir

Case is thermaltake view 31

after 13 days non stop folding with a stable overclock at 4ghz on the cpu and +5% on the gpu (with undervolt):

CPU sit at 65°C (without overclock it was sitting at a nice 45-50, will go back to normal clocks after the event)

GPU 40°C 
Could probably lower the temp by ramping up the fan but as it is they are super quiet

It is around 950,000 ppd

 

The rig is due for an overhaul, RGB sync, dusting, cmos battery change, loop refill but have to wait the end of the event

I have a 3800X and gave up on PBO. Sometimes I use Ryzen Master "Creator Mode" profile with Control Mode "Manual" and set the clocks to 4500 at 1.35v. Using a Corsair H115i Pro RGB with upgraded (2,000 rpm) fans. However, generally I just leave it in Default mode, as this seems the most stable. (I folded for about 6 days in Creator mode, but then my system blue screened.) Temperatures are usually at least 2°C lower, and power draw is a few watts less with these Creator Mode settings for my 3800X - you're mileage may vary. In Default mode, current CPU folding temp is 70.1°C according to GPU-Z.

I'm not even sure it's possible to get 400 billion points in a single day with every computer on earth. Right now all of FAH is 28 billion per day. Also a missed a few zeros on the today column, woops.

The project has... what... almost 3 million donors? If we wildly assume half of people have a computer (3.5 billion)... than this project has ~0.005% of Earth's computers. Even assuming people have multiple computers... that's a way more silly number than 400 billion points a day. Gotta be at LEAST... 420.

I turned my CPU off (they don't seem to come close to pumping out the power of a GPU anyway) because it was getting close to 100c... the GPUs are running perlously close to 90c at times. This project definitely takes a toll. On the bright side, going all out I'm using around half a kW per hour... so... that sucks.
