Thanks all for the kind words, I have missed [H] a lot.
I have 24GB of new RAM in SR2#2, and it is folding nicely at a sedate 4.0Ghz. 24 hrs in to a 6903, which is a great stability test.
Once I move over to #2 I will then try to see what the problem with #1 was - it could have been mobo, RAM...
[H]appy new year guys. :p
Where have I been? Working my tail off. Family commitments. Getting well. Total FAH blackout for me.:(
It is just about midnight here in Oz, and stinking hot.
My main SR2 is dying, losing overclock and burnt out. Crash crash crash, and no time to properly fix...
I am on A50 too. I will be very in interested to see if:
a) your turbo is engaged, and we are on an even footing (apart from 4.1 vs 3.6Ghz)
b) your turbo is not engaged, you get a new boost, and I am back to hunting for why my rig is slower.
They say great science is built on the...
Found the problem - it is turbo!
Turbo is not engaging when folding in a VM.
Folding windows native:
Folding with Linux guest on Win7 Host in Virtualbox
Now with C States enabled or disabled in the BIOS, we get the same result, but I remembered a C1E work-around developed by sfield: You...
I second all the names above (apart from mine), and include Patriot...
But whoever it is, they have to want the job. Our 3rd rep will have an uphill battle...
I would personally love to do the job, but I have a business to run and a new baby due any day now, so I could not take it on and do it...
10% penalty on captured 6901, 3% penalty on live 2685.
Also on the 2685 i am running the vm minimized and disabled the preview window in VB. Might as well.
BFS kernel 2.6.35-28-generic-ck installed as per Mr Musky guide gave me 50% CPU usage, so I don't think it was working right.
Jebo you are a legend.
(picture of Jebo relaxing)
SUCCESS. Finally I have a workble solution, after months of faffing around. :D:D:D
Ubuntu 11.04 on latest kernel v3.0-rc7 as guest on Win7 host using Virtualbox. Numa disabled, krakken does nothing but I have it there anyway so I can...
ok, just installed Ubuntu as guest in VB and am getting same results as linuxforge - but with benefit of GUI for us dummies.
EDIT - most important, GUI makes it easy to backup FAH folder while running before control C shutdown. Check in work folder to make sure this did not happen during...
Hmmm, interesting - keep us posted if your frame times are still respectable with 95% usage.
Very odd that on your rig you can beat native Windows times and I cannot.
Do I need to worry about Virtualbox Guest additions? Installing them on a Ubuntu guest was easy, but on a CLI I am in...
Lost a 6904? :( (many Bothans died to bring us this information)
I have gone through mine and cant find any differences that I imagine would alter things... sheet. Thanks for doing so, it means we can rule out a lot of things.
Let me know if you are getting 100% CPU usage on windows, or...
Ok thanks for that - I have identical settings in VB, which makes me think I have something in the BIOS different.
What does windows taskmanager say your CPU usage is?
Are there virtualisation settings in the BIOS other than in the CPU configuration menu?
MAX CPUID Value...
Hey all, been too busy lately, but I finally had ago again at this last night. I wish I had posted about my testing, but then I would probably have put people off trying VB, which I had given up on as too buggy.
Haven't been able to duplicate Jebos success just yet, but having said that I...
Picked up two more last night. The tap is back on.
/I welcome your hatred. :D
EDIT - before people start feeling too jealous:
SR2#1 got lucky - it is only on linux over the weekend and drew a 6904. A lot of 2684s this week.
SR2#2 had regular bigadv for the prior 10 WU.
SR2#3 is lucky - 3...
A fun fact: Points produced in last 30 days:
561,229,750 - [H]
560,486,333 - EVGA
Since 06/12/11 (when [H] produced more points in a day than EVGA for the first time in a long time) we have done 18.5 million more than EVGA. We will see if this is enough to hold on through their start of...
Well, congrats to Dropper on the first to 200 million, outstanding achievement.
And congrats to Musky and Patriot and everyone in [H] for putting on such a great show, slugging it out at levels that were unimaginable only 6 months ago.
A lucky team to have leaders like this. :D
This guy is awesome, the real deal. As welcome as his points contribution is - (he would be top 3 here and is currently number 1 at EVGA), his technical know how is worth many times that.
Anyone running FAH on 2p or 4p systems will be very grateful when his NUMA optimisations make it's way into...
I heard they might introduce a quick return bonus for gpus, which I take it to mean would elevate the average.
But I find my mental state much easier to maintain if I assume that the most dedicated folders will get screwed by unintended consequences of Stanford. The last month was too good to...
Amazingly I am not as peeved as I should be about it - there were hints that this would happen.
PPD is down almost exactly 20%. But this might end up the same on average as it was a month ago, depending on how many super-bigadv flow.
Dont get me wrong, Stanford are simply useless re...
It is a 20% cut in PPD. (on my SR2s)
BUT - we still have the new super-bigadv, and more to come. These now have PPD 22% better than when we could get 2 months ago, and now have a 55% premium over the best regular bigadv like 6901. So the average PPD in production might end up the same as...
Just got another 6904 to follow on, but... checking my Stanford stats, the one that just uploaded an hour ago is back to normal, unlike my last 2. This one scored 660,000 points, as HFM predicted.
There must have been either an incorrect initial points entry for 6904, or some scoring error on...
Got 2 sets of back to back 6904s on the two machines running linux, had solid 2684s on the windows rig.
I will drop the 6904s in the next half day or so, but until then I can't tell you if they are flowing or not. That is the trouble with units that take 55 hours to run. Not terribly frequent...
According to EOC, [H] has just passed 14 million work units, more than 30% more than any other team, and 5.4% of all work units done.
And let's not forget since 06/12/11 [H] is again the number one team for PPD too.
Well done everyone I reckon. That's all. :D
Well, as of 10 minutes ago we have a new leader!
Congrats Dropper, Very [H]ard.
This team blows my mind, when I started the thread it looked like a neck and neck race, and now it looks over already... although lookout Keith, Musky added SR2's at a rate of two per week:eek: to knock me off...
Time Points WUs
06.28, 6am 760,330 1
06.28, 3am 771,606 1
Ok, second 6904 dropped and same deal - HFM predicted for 32min40sec a dump of 656,000 points (287k PPD), but I got 760k = 332k PPD (6903 = ~300k )
Looks like these are the biggest PPD out there. (so they should be...
