Your link is the only other place besides SPRC where I have donated some money. It's at the top of my favorites list.

By the way, cordis and Lockheed are is posting 43,630 and 31,463 PPD at the moment. WTF??? :shock: :D
Both of them will pass the two million mark in the next couple of days, and indeed pass me as well.

If it were few months ago, I could boot up more machines to defend my rank. But unfortunately, I am leaving school this week, so no more folding on school machines for me. I plan to give away my personally owned machines at home as well to make moving out easier. All in all, I will stop folding altogether. If I decide to continue folding using my everyday computer, I would be posting 4000 PPD at best.

I will be missing the good old days.

That's a bummer, sorry to see you go Eumin. You were the one I was trying to beat when I upgraded all my hardware, so thanks for the inspiration.

And hey, looks like Lockheed just broke past 2 million, congrats!

thanks guys!

GTX285 is still going strong.

Just gotta find why the SMP client quit

Did you update to the newest version? The one that uses the A3 core?


Posted: Tue May 18, 2010 1:27 pm
by cordis
Yeah, what's the issue, kittle? I hate to think of you wanting to fold but not being able to.

well both the SMP client and GTX285 are now going strong. I average about 6k-7k PPD with both of them running.
Im still figuring out win7, so re-installing the SMP client fixed it up nicely.

The i7 980x gets 1500-2k ppd all by itself, so im happy about that part.

I'm surprised you get only 1500-2000ppd with this beast... my C2duo E7200 gets around 1900... You must be missing something with the SMP client !
Make sure your smp client is launched with the "-smp" and "-advmethods" arguments.
Also, you might want to try the "-bigadv" argument as well but I'm not sure how it works.

Yeah, my 980x is getting between 17k-25kppd in normal SMP jobs, it used to get near 30kppd running bigadv. Still annoyed that they switched bigadv to windows only. Are you running 24/7? If you want to run bigadv, you'll definitely need to be on 24/7, so don't run that unless you're on all the time. I suppose if you're not running continuously, that could be an issue. Have you checked the process monitor, are all the cpus pegged high? Really, with a 980x and a 285, you should be getting 25k-35kppd with no trouble. Troubling.
