What does it take to go from white to green to yellow to orange to red?
What does it take to work your way into the top 20 in the SPCR stats? How about the top 1000 in all of [email protected]
The ExtremeOverclocking stats at this moment (11:45 AM EDT, 21 Oct 2003) show TRC-13 (in the #1 spot) as our only red member. TRC-13 was kind enough to post his/her setup yesterday: 22 CPUs ranging from an Athlon MP dualie through Barton 2800s down to a 1.0 P3.
bkh (#3), Lockheed (#4), and Zhentar (#5) all show as orange. The Stanford stats show them having 33, 14, and 17 CPUs, respectively.
mjrusso45 is currently yellow in the #2 spot with 12 active CPUs in the past week.
In slots #6-#10 are: tragus (yellow/6 CPUs), mike_chin (yellow/5 CPUs), Rusty075 (green, but almost yellow/2 CPUs), aphonos (yellow/4 CPUs), and CharlieChan (yellow/8 CPUs.)
Our other yellow Folders are: Cosine (#16/13 CPUs), Metaluna (#18/7 CPUs), and tangled (#19/9 CPUs.)
Way down in #76 is me: Sbabb/green most of the time/4 CPUs. I'm currently running:
Barton 2500 24/7
Athlon XP1900 24/7
Athlon XP1800 whenever my daughter has it on, which is often
Athlon XP2000 laptop ~8/5, but I've been plugging it in and running it at home lately because I'm obsessed with folding.
My daughter's machine is running the GUI 3.24 client, but the other three are running EM-III with the 3.25 console client -advmethods -forceasm.
OK, obviously it takes lots of time and persistence to get to the top 10. The longer you keep folding, the higher your score gets.
What else does it take? What are the people who are yellow with <10 CPUs running? How is Rusty075 getting almost 1000/week out of only 2 CPUs?
Is there a point at which it doesn't make sense to install [email protected]
on a system? I have a 233MMX running Linux as a file server and a Cobalt Qube (K6-2/450) web server which runs a highly modified Linux. Is it worth making them fold, or will they never make a deadline anyway?
Obsessed minds want to know!
