Thanks for the nom, Electric costs just went up again so currently paying 16.8p per Kwh, Xe.com is showing that at around 20 cents a kwh, not sure how that stacks up, unless you are in California where its stupid prices.
I stop on occasion - usually when i am on vacation. I also haven't run...
There was an issue a few years back where smaller WU didn't like GPU's with lots of cores. The general theory was if a project was too small to keep all the cores busy it was bouncing around the cores not running as efficently as it could. Not sure if it was ever proven.
Yeah its a spinning drive that i had lying around.
No overclock on the cpu, it was bought to use as little power as possible - its a 25w tdp chip. Ram seems OK but will memtest it after my holidays.
When i get back it will be testing teh 2070 and 2060 in it again to see what happens.
Well, testing has proven to be interesting and somewhat annoying.
The HDD is fried, its hot to the touch, runs like a turtle in super glue and frequently locks up. I'm not surpirsed, it was bought off amazon and arrived in a jiffy bag with no additional padding
I put the 2070 in a spare 3600...
restarting the E3 rig is not going well, the Bios keeps shutting down the rig saying Asus anti surge has activated to protect the system from unsafe power. Given this is a different PSU to the 750 that dumped yesterday i'm beginning to suspect it might be the motherboard, testing continues....
Its been an expensive morning. While retiring my dually rig its HDD died.
While firing the second rig back up the PSU started making funny noises and it also looks like the 2060 in it has died. Not sure if teh 2060 was taken out by the PSU or not
So thats a WD 320GB HDD, a corsair AX 750 gold...
Well its finally time, my last dually rig is being retired. Its only been folding gpu units for the last 5 years so having a dual cpu machine was just a waste. Also the PPD of the cpu's just wasn't worth the power draw any more.
Its going to get replaced when my daily driver gets upgraded...
Thanks all and congrats to Firedfly for winning January.
To answer Agent_N, yes i am in the UK and currently paying 16.28p per kwh, or 21c in USD. I spend about £110 a month on my folding which is around $148
No air con in the office and its south facing so it gets a bit warm in the summer.
So both rigs are now back up and running at full speed, HFM is currently showing 5.6m PPD. Must have been a borked driver install on Linux, Everything is working just fine on windows 10 and i even have hfm monitoring both machines for the first time in months.
Yeah, i'm resolving all the bandwidth and PCIe bandwidth issues when the next folding rig gets upgraded. It will be my current threadripper system, I'm going to get something a bit newer for day to day use.
Well, i'm back sort of. One rig worked for a day and then crashed. the other lasted 4 hours. I think they need a good day of software upgrades and general TLC, mint 18.2 and 2 year old drivers won't be helping.
One is running now until i can spend some time with them at the weekend.
Unfortunately I am going to have to shut my rigs down for the foreseeable future as the wife has been made redundant. While my wage allows us to cover all the bills it does not allow for any kind of luxuries of which my folding hobby is one. Hopefully I will be back on line by mid...
Well, I'm in the UK so all sorts of shenanigans were going on, houses were built on the cheap and as quickly as possible. I had a pipe go on the heating system a couple of years ago. It turns out all the heating pipes were made out of mild steel so they all need to come out and be replaced...
I'm only going to be running at half spped. One of my rigs keeps taking a dump and i have no idea what is causing it. Currently testing the cards separately to see if one of them is on the way out. :(
Of course, it had to be the newer rtx rig and not the old 1070/1080 rig:mad::mad::mad:
