LTT Official Folding Month 2020!!!

Go to solution Solved by GOTSpectrum,

Luckily when I said it was almost done, I really meant it. 

 

For the last time in 2020, ladles and gentlespoons, here a blog post.

 

 

And with that said, it's a wrap! Thank you for everyone getting involved, if you'd like to continue talking about folding why not head over to The Folding Community Board

or i could not add any more heat to my room that i have to sleep in because that extra roughly 1kw of heat means i have to keep two windows wide open just to sleep

That works too...

It's stable (didn't crash) during a run of 3DMark TimeSpy.

i use unigine valley and i stop it on a bright frame so i can see artefacts.

 

Being stable for a few runs in a benchmark and being stable in fah are two different things unfortunately, especially when turning off force p2 state.

 

Try using kombustor with it artifact detector, it's sensitive and will pick up issues a long time before the human eye can, for the most part anyway, but I would still keep my eye on it.

 

Using kombustor and msi afterburner I overclock while kombustor is running, upping the clocks every few until it crashes or it starts reporting artifacts, allows me to get a idea what the card can do in only a few minutes.

This is why I back off by 100 on what is stable with a benchmark - it gives that wiggle room to account for slight instability

I don't think 100 is the magic number for all cards, my 3090 was stable for hours of benchmarks and gaming with +200 core and +1100 mem, but crashes in fah when it goes over +75 core or +600 mem, which i thought it would be stable at, but now I have had to drop the clocks down to +50 core and + 400 mem, this seems ok.

 

I do agree with the idea of finding a stable OC and then backing off a bit to make sure it's as stable as possible.

to be fair, it's not like i have my hands on a 3090 to test it myself yet lol

@GOTSpectrum I have a suggestion for future days. Could you possibly put each day into a new page in the same google sheet? That way, it might be easier to compare between days, especially if we want to put a graph together.

It'd also make it easier to find the results, as we can just bookmark the one sheet.

I have a question: I had a problem with my PSU and had to send it over for repairs. I am signed up for this event but I lost many days of activity - got back to folding yesterday. Can I still get a badge? I started again yesterday and will surely hit the other requirements by the end of the month.

As long as you meet the requirements, I don't see why you wouldn't get a badge for participation

Well it's just an example, I have a few cards that would and wouldn't be stable.

 

There are so many variables when it comes to overclocking and no 2 cards are the same, so you can't teach numbers, only techniques, IMO.

I won't meet the 20 day requirement, that's why I ask.

Why not, we ar only on our third day, so unless you are folding with a potato you should be able to hit them

Well TeamLTT seems to be showing what high gear looks like, but will we see a over 3 billion day before the event is over?

it's a real shame because part of the reason i got my 3900x was so i could throw 24 threads at this and hope it wouldn't interfere too much. alas, no. still, it's useful for video rendering etc.

my AMD system doesn't have any slowdown when i'm CPU folding until i'm 12/12 on threads there. I usually run 10/12 so there's overhead for FAH and watching youtube.

That's interesting. I have a 3900x and an RTX 2070 in my rig. I used to be folding at a lower thread count but I have raised it up recently to let the client pick its own at max (claims 23 threads but actually uses 22 according to task manager).  I did notice that when I raised the threads, my points went down initially, but that was at my own custom thread counts. Now it is on auto and full, and even though I don't have any OC on my CPU besides what might be happening automatically, I did turn OC from for the entire CPU to per CCX and that did seem to help with performance some.

 

Does Medium VS Full make a difference for GPU?

Can’t remember off the top of my head, I’ll test if I have time tonight. It’s potentially something like it uses a different GPU P-state for folding

CHOOO CHOOOOO

Over 3M PPD estimated on this WU. More of these please.

Jesus, is the 1080Ti that much more powerful than the normal 1080? I've got my OC'd +144/+602 also and I'm only getting 1.5m PPD :(

I got a 3950x and CPU folding still bogs me down badly lmao.

I think that was just a particularly good WU. I also had it OC'd and 120% power limit when I was on that WU.

Right now I'm running 70% power limit and estimated 2.1M PPD.

 

There is a pretty big gap between 1080 and 1080ti though.

there's ~1000 cuda cores between them, the 1080ti has more than 1/3 again as many cuda cores as the 1080, there's going to be a fairly big gap. plus we don't have many 1080's folding at the minute so new-WU stats are going to be lacking in the DB compared to 1080Ti's which we have no shortage of really

I'm noticing that f@h is a lot more tolerant of core overclock on my Asus TUF 3090 (non oc version) over my EVGA 2080 super xc gaming. I could only run like +40 on my 2080 super, basically whatever MSI OC scanner got, while I've been running +110 on my 3090 with some system instability, but it crashes Windows before a WU fails, +80 for true stability.
