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.

Is that an original IBM with the moving plate cap pickups, or the later IBM by Lexmark dome pickup junk?

I've got a couple of both, the original is a LOT better overall.


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:

Yeah unfortunately I am not going to be folding much. Two of the 4 PC's I had, shit the bed. I also have a weird issue with my gaming rig and I might have to RMA my 2080Ti

Sounds like you're getting most of the bad luck from this folding event and post-of.  Don't worry, I took some with a windows re-image because the software refused to run again after two BSODs from screwing with stuff. Hopefully you don't get much/any more bad luck on parts.

On my oldest (FX8350 RX480) PC only a single RAM slot is being detected. The 2 year old PC (8700K 1080TI) Posts then says I have no OS. Happened this morning. Nothing changed. It's a lonely M.2 that works just fine in another PC. So yeah. Fun.

Damn - was hoping to make 1,000 WUs before the end 😧 Doesn't look like I'll crack 60M either.

Well, better late than never:

i think a call to action is needed

 

now i got gpu WUs that are for covid, i think its the chance to overtake default team

why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

one one side i was able to burn test the parts for mew new 32 core 64thread machine. but had to downclock it due to not having a solid aio. just a basic air cooler that works more for a 16 core machine. so that one been handy cap this whole time

Son of Foldy Puff Jr is assembled, waiting on OS install tomorrow evening likely. Jank PC, Seasonic 350W PSU with a 2X Molex to 6 pin PCIe power adapter in a case that I think might pre-date Y2K that still has a PATA CDROM and a Floppy drive screwed into it because I can't be assed to remove them, a de-lidded then Kryonaut pasted Celeron G1820 under an Arctic 12 passive heat sink and 2x2GB DDR3 1600 CL9 on a H97 board. The board is the best thing in the PC and the only spare that's got PCIe 3.0x16, 2nd slot is 2.0x8 I think so maybe it'll get another P106-100, but the used one in there has 2 mis-matched AMD heat sink fans on it. May break down and order some matching fans if I can get some cheaply.

Demoted Foldy Puff JR to GPU folding only.

Foldy Puff Sr has been having a hard time getting GPU WU's but steady CPU work with 3X 4 core CPU slots.

What are the best setting for client-type and next-unit-percentage ?

 

I currently have client-type set to advanced, what are the + / -'s for setting it to beta ?

 

All through the event I had next-unit-percentage set to 98 and that seemed to work for me as I almost always had the next WU ready to go as the last one finished. Since yesterday I have it set at 90 and I getting a lot of idle GPU time (CPUs are still doing fine at 98). From what I understand reading what some of the regular folders have said there is an unusual lack of GPU WU's at the moment but under normal circumstances what would be the best setting for this ?

 

I should say I'm not looking to maximize my points so much as I am looking to maximize the number of WUs I do. I am quite happy to sacrifice a few points to have less idle GPU time, for me this is personal and it really is about getting the science done more than the glory.

After digging though my office for random bits, stealing from other systems, sacrificing some parts from a planned ebay part ITX build I started, but had no case for and a little 3D printing and zip ties to fill in the gaps of a makeshift body on a monitor stand, this abomination what brought online.

When powered, its first words to me were "What is my purpose?" and I said "To fold for LTT!", and that is what it is doing ever since...

Do not use beta. Advanced is okay for you. If you do not care about PPD, put next-unit-percentage to 90 as that will get WUs ASAP.

Thanks. I wasn't sure about beta that's mainly why I asked. I'll leave next-unit-percentage at 90 for now and as the amount of work increases slowly work it up until I find the number that works best.

I picked up a nice deal for Radeon 5700xt, I am running it with ryzen 3600 and getting 1.2 to 1.4M PPD + CPU. Super happy with the performance!  That also freed up my Geforce GTX 960 to pair it with another old GTX 960 and that machine is running for ~400kPPD.  Gonna continue until I see the electric bill 🤣

@GOTSpectrum Hi, I see that I was lucky and won a Steam key.

While I am happy that I was lucky enough to win, I don't have a use for it, or even know what it is used for, so if you'd like please feel free to donate it to someone who can use it and will be happy to receive it.

 

Best wishes from MichaelAdler

There were a couple times late 2017 / early 2018 where CureCoin broke 60 BILLION points produced in a month... It looks like that record *could* get shattered this April by any (or all) of these top 3 teams if they can keep up the pace!
