Does overclocking even make that much of a difference for F@h? I've messed around with it on a few cards in the past and didn't get much improvement, and in at least one case I got worse results for some reason. 

Normally I underclock slightly as it uses less power and same or close to same speed. BUT if things get tight then I sometimes get stupid and experiment with overclocking but normally Bites back...

Can totally relate here!!! 

 

I'd love to try it out and join in on F@h but don't think my parents would be too happy if I were to leave my rig on during the day. 

 

Plus, I doubt my hardware would be any good considering nvidia GPUs seem to be favored here.

Gonna hopefully get F@H running on the m1, and then maybe finally get some GPU mercenary fleets in.

If you think I'm wrong, correct me. If I've offended you in some way tell me what it is and how I can correct it. I want to learn, and along the way one can make mistakes; Being wrong helps you learn what's right.

Love it! You've clearly taken some efforts to write this up and it's brilliant.

 

Hey Spec, a little correction : Frontier does 1.1 exaFLOPS (1102 PFLOPS), not 1.1PFLOPS. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TOP500 ) F@h did briefly breach the exascale mark during the COVID boom in people signing up, and was the first computing system to do so, but we aren't at much more than 150-200PFLOPS now.

 

Thats what I get for writing posts at 1am... i'll drop a correction soon

Sweet, it's cold enough that I can Fold and my dad won't complain!

 

I'm curious, is there a way to see how many Folding events one's completed? I don't know if I've done 1 or 2.

Its crazy that a couple of months of folding now in the UK is likely to cost as much as an RTX 4090.

Router:  Intel N100 (pfSense) WiFi6: Zyxel NWA210AX (1.7Gbit peak at 160Mhz)
WiFi5: Ubiquiti NanoHD OpenWRT (~500Mbit at 80Mhz) Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, MS510TXPP, GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen Full Fibre 900 (~930Mbit down, 115Mbit up) + Three 5G (~800Mbit down, 115Mbit up)

Looking forward to destroying my own previous record with the new 3080!

 

Also changed my setup location from an upstairs room to the basement, so I now need to produce heat instead of having too much of it. That's on top of the changes in temperature recently. Hehehe

I'll be digging through the war chest to get some prizes up this evening hopefully, if anyone would like to donate prizes drop me a message

All hardware that is capable is good.  AMD cards work fine, just aren't the bang for the folding buck all the time.  Even CPU only works fine, though not optimal, which is what I always do.

Good to know! I'll have to check into it and read more information on the whole process of getting the application installed.

I have donated a grand total of roughly 900 points today, probably 3K in 2 days, but if it's that slow, I don't think I'll get a badge. I wish someone worked on folding using the neural engine (AI/compute acceleration built into the M1, a vestigial part from photo processing on iPhones) or even just the GPU, I image that would be roughly 4-5 times faster.

Now that mining is dead, I hope the total compute on offer goes up significantly.

F@H uses very little VRAM. Though others have seen slight improvements with memory overclocks in my testing I saw only a few percent which could have been margin of error.

 

Any increase in Shader/Graphics clock will show a corresponding improvement in yield but finding stability is tricky and a overclock can work for weeks before that one task comes along that causes a failure.

 

Personally I would NOT go above +50 MHz depending on the card. The one exception is my EVGA 1070ti SC Gaming which seems to boost only to the mid 1800s and will run with a +150 with no issues. These things take a long time to figure out and one failed WU due to an overclock 80-90% into a task will negate any other gains from the overclock when it was stable.

 

Unlike gaming where the application recovers usually from an error F@H just throws an error and moves on to the next task.

Agreed.  While your computer and video card may be stable at higher OCs while gaming and such, the F@H client is much more finicky. I undervolt the GPU to 80%, underclock the VRAM speed by something like 500MHz, and do a modest 50-100MHz OC on the GPU. Stable forever, a good drop in power draw, and I still average somewhere around +200-400k on average over other GTX 1660S depending on the WUs.

Starting to wonder if my rx480 is going to be more efficient than my old ass electric baseboards... I only need a few C ambient increase with it being a cinderblock building.

 

Looked up the energy useage per foot of my baseboard heaters, and my 480 and 2600X may be slightly more efficient per heat unit. 

My baseboards are ~150-200Wh per linear foot, and given the weather here being chilly: the total linear feet of the baseboards comes out slightly more than running ~250ish watts of CPU+GPU for 24/7 operation.

 

F@H says that my ppd is estimated at ~71.5k, am very happy.
