    WTB Ryzen 5 2600 or 3600 or similar

    Bump and wishing you luck! I wish I lived that close to a microcenter, as it is I have a hardware mule looking to ship me one from their local MC since that chip seems OOS everywhere!

    Closed: Ryzen 5 Mobo, CPU, RAM for budget to mid-range gaming build

    My sister just put my 12 year old nephew in touch with me after his dream of getting a PS5 has died to buy a "gaming PC." I started crying after he linked me a refurbished dell 1030 from Walmart that was being claimed as gaming because it had an RGB keyboard and in an effort to use some of my...

    Need input on a new laptop for creative

    Thanks for pointing that out. It's a little underpowered for what I'm looking for. I did find the Lenovo X1 extreme gen 2 which has similar specs to the HP. My main concern there is the color space of the monitor, on the yoga or even the x1 extreme it isn't mentioned, so while it's likely good...

    Need input on a new laptop for creative

    So recently Asus launched their zenbook pro duo seemingly targeted at creators which just looks really sexy, right as I was two days away from buying the HP Spectre x360 2 in 1 for content creation. I primarily work on Lightroom and Photoshop and was looking for a good touch interface so I can...

    Lian Li Alpha 330 and Alpha 550

    I got the Alpha 550, been working an E-ATX build in it. There are some design considerations that I find really annoying, and had I realized it when I got the case I might have looked at something else. Specifically putting an EATX with dual rad, their "supported" rad sizes are, impossible, and...

    WTB: 1080TI found one*

    Found one, thanks everyone! I'd prefer something that has a waterblock and factory cooler. I'm in the process of building a new rig and my 970's HDMI port just went out on me so I'm hoping to have something with fans now that I can add to the waterloop when I get the new Mobo and CPU in on the...

    No... Not at all... I wish I could get somes but unfortunately I'm renting in the Bay area, unless someone knows how to do temporary solar. I've installed through BOINC so I might jump on some of the FB challenges, I figured I saw WCG on there so it would support either way. Regarding...

    I'm getting back into things, I'm going to be building a new system soon and will likely be using WCG to bake it in. In the meantime I set up the time of use and everything on my old system to get back in the hang of things. I'm in Cali so I'm only doing this on Off-Peak time, but it is still...

    Combination possible or no?

    hititnquitit Looking at the specs of the board the 3rd PCIe slot runs x4 off the PCH and switches with some SATA ports or lowers it's speed to x2. The second M.2 on the linked card is SATA and wouldn't work with the drives mentioned. CanesVenetici I don't think your proposed system will work...

    F@H Back on Off Hours

    Yeah, unfortunately I estimate that bringing the 4p up full time would be an extra $125/month or more with the cost of electricity. If electricity was reasonably priced I would be happy to run [H]ard but for now I'm thinking nights and weekends as best I can. Thanks for the feedback! I'll try to...

    F@H Back on Off Hours

    I think the chips are 6128's I'm hoping to stick with FAH but in general I realize that it's rather old and the client I am using is likely no longer supported. Would be interested in switching to the BOINC if there isn't a way to do things easy with FAH. Also the 4P is currently headless, while...

    F@H Back on Off Hours

    Howdy all, It's been a while since I've contributed but I wanted to say I'm back and also ask a question. I live in the Bay area of Cali and electricity here is VERY expensive depending on time of day (I've got an EV so I don't have to worry about tiers just buckets). I'm interested in...

    EVGA Bucks Equivalent

    Honestly, I posted a few weeks ago that I was probably going to stop folding at 40M points because I just didn't see anything and my money (electric bill) could have been used for something better as I can't claim folding and power gets expensive. While [H]ard bucks would be nice, I just don't...

    40 Million Point Goal/End

    Its a 4p, 6128 setup on a spotswood tower, I never modded the bios because some of the DIMMs have never been recognized and I just never wanted to go through the hassle of pulling off the musky fans to figure out if there was a seating issue so the board has just been plugging away for the last...

    40 Million Point Goal/End

    Hey guys, I haven't posted all that much on here but I think I'm going to start to ratchet back my folding once I hit the 40 Million point mark. I know it's rather arbitrary but my server has been sitting plugging away thanks to the help I've gotten from you guys for the last 4 months or so...

    AMD Opteron 6172

    bout how much power do a set of 6172s use, I have a 4p with 6128's and it would be nice to swap these out but I imagine I'm almost maxing out my 600w continuous (gold) power supply as it is :P

    decent rig?

    my 4p g34 6128 at 1.8 ghz stock, ubuntu 10.14, v6.34, 500-520w from wall = 163k ppd depending on parts you might be able to find the pieces to make a naked system like this for under 1k, if you are diligent about looking for deals possibly less.

    4P still > GPU?

    I will vouch that my 580 is currently folding for more points than my 32 core 4p... however my 4p has and will continue to fold at a damn near constant rate... the GPU is in beta. If I were you, I would decide what I want to use the gpu/4p for and get which ever one fits your use case better...

    Attention GPU Folders: Make sure you are set up for QRB units

    OK, I updated my core just like in the OCN post and just redownloaded and pasted over it again, when I look at the log it still says that its running this - 21:06:31:WU01:FS00:0x15:Version 2.25 (Wed May 9 17:03:01 EDT 2012) So is there a better place to get the 2.22 core from...

    Attention GPU Folders: Make sure you are set up for QRB units

    So after replacing the core I now have a TPF of 5:45.... yeah... I'm suddenly not so unhappy with my 4p... Edit: now at 4:45... honestly I'm just going to stop looking at the ticker go and leave it... maybe it will finish and get a better unit :P

    Attention GPU Folders: Make sure you are set up for QRB units

    So I have a 580, I set everything up in windows v7 per the first post and I'm not getting the beta unit that everyone else is and my 8018 is running at TPF 4:46 with an estimated PPD of 17391... is there something that I missed?

    Now that we are getting decent points for the power I fired up my 580, but almost wish I didn't get my 4p if the points are going to be this friggen inflated.

    EVGA Overtake

    Best build for $1500 to $2000

    Don't barebones kits come on sale every once and a while. Barebones server and ram for 1200 and then some cheap 61xx chips (best for the left over money) its in a closet so putting it in a rack seems to make sense... I like random builds as much as the next, but he probably has some requirement...
