W00t 420/600! :p

 

So... is there a time or app that makes folding peak? Will it go faster if it's active or inactive? Or is it always the stable?

Updates: I just installed [email protected], it and distributed.net are fighting for my CPU, so they're each getting half a 1.8GHz P4 OCed to 2.4, 2.7, or not at all (depending on the temperature of my bedroom).

 

I also set up the distributed.net team. The page is HERE.

Afaik, it only uses CPU cycles that are otherwise redundant, i.e. it has the lowest priority of any process running on your PC. So if you set it to use 50% of your processing capability, it uses 50% of the free capability, rather than 50% of your total capability.

 

Whether it's active or not shouldn't make any difference, as it sits in the system tray.

 

So if you're just using the web, you'll get a decent amount of folding done; but if you're playing a beta copy of Doom III, you'll get almost no folding done.

Great idea mike.

 

Watch out Wheelman. That top spot is mine. :)

 

Heh, we can all be aggresively competitive, and help people at the same time. :p

I'm currently in second, and my 3rd work unit is at 430/500. Watch out man. The only reason my P4-1.8A @ 2.7 isn't kicking your ass is because I run [email protected] and distributed.net at the same time.

Well, you should be kicking my ass because my computer doesn't even stay on all that much...  :p

 

I switch it off overnight and whenever I'm out, but I must say I'm pretty pleased at the speed my Athlon 2600 is munching through these work units. It's not even set to use anywhere near 100% of the free clock cycles. :D (It was getting a little hot in my case with the CPU running flat out indefinitely so I turned it down - I haven't got enough case cooling for the summer yet).

hmm interesting... lets see how much I kick ass :pp

 

i'm running 2 text-based clients on my dualie rig right now :D

Bah, that's cheating! :pp;)

 

One day in the future, when I've got more space (i.e. my own place) and more money (i.e. better job), I'll set up a server-type pc for the rest of a network to access, and to run P2P and distributed computing proggies 24/7/52. Wouldn't be an amaxingly fast PC, what with the need for silent cooling so that it can be left on indefinitely, but it would be cool to let it munch through stuff like this on a permanent basis. :)

pmm go to http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/teampage?q=32093

 

and i've set up my mini-farm ;)

1.866 + 1.866 + 1.300 = 5.032 GHZ of RAW amd power :pp

A faulty WU?  Anyways, you should be kicking everyones ass with 5GHZ  :O  What I don't get is how the WUs are scored.  One WU took like 36 hours and it gave me 6 points :furious:  Another took about 20 hrs and gave me 37 points.  Weird.

 

Anyways Team GTAForums now has a sig that you guys can wear.  After much begging around the forums, Guglielminpietro broke down and made one for me :D

And here's the code sample if you want to make the banner link to this topic:

Maybe mike39 can edit this into the first post if he wants.

good-bye commie banner!

p.s. - finished my 3rd WU :D

p.s.s. - different wu's have diferent weight - electron microscope shows weight of each unit processing :p

 

 

right now i'm doing 3 units - with weight 15.4, 19.7 and 23.6

 

 

Edit: i'm using [email protected] command line client, monitored via Electro Microscope III

read how to setup at http://folding.octeams.com/

Likewise, if anyone else runs distributed.net, I'm going to make a team on there (for us gtaforumers). Info will be available soon.

Yea, but the good thing, RC5-64, has been solved, and for some ODD ASS reason, it doesnt run on auto on my winxp, even if i do autostart.  It closes after it opens and really fast too.  I can't figure out why.

Alright, I've installed EMIII and either my computer is sucking ass or these WUs are just taking long.

I also installed the EM calculator and here's my estimated points/week:

Hmm, my pc just completed a 4th WU about 30 minutes ago but it's only showing  3 WU on the statistics page :/

 

Here's my configurations

 

EDIT:  Nevermind, I checked the stats awhile ago and it was updated.

I heard some rumbling up there about running your system too hard leaving it on 100% all the time.  Would like some further info on that one.  Do I need to turn it down?

 

By the way, how the f*ck are you pulling 5 Gig of processor?

I was wondering about this myself.  So far I've been running the program almost non-stop at 100% CPU usage for the past 6 days and no meltdowns so far.  I have noticed though that leaving it on 100% and trying to run any games doesn't work e.g. all games crash to the desktop with it running.  So I just shut the program down when running games.  Does this happen to anyone else?

Isnt this advertising?

advertising or not, its to help cure cancer for gods sake.

As long as cancer is a bussiness, there will never be a cure. I did this for awhile for the gay ATI fanboy team(Rage3d) for awhile, got bored. Games felt a litte laggier, Uninstalled it. Maybe im just a heartless. But Id rather give my MhZ to non stop D2 MF runs. Heh

Don't get too happy. My box was down for a few hours installing win2k, my first results were at 100% of my 1.8GHz, and now I'm allowing it to use 80% of my 2.7GHz (a very nice OC, don't you think?). I find reducing CPU usage 20% reduces CPU temp by about 8°C.

 

edit: oh, and last night I had it off, because I was playing games. I find it doesn't play nice with games. They'll minimize every few seconds and such.

 

edit: watch out! I increased the max CPU usage to 90% (that's 270 more MHz for it to play with) and tonight I'll get the 2 PII-350s running it too.
