Main PC : i7-5930K @ 4.5, cooled by BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 MSI X99A Gaming 7 MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8GB BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P9 850W I plan to add another graphics card (probably my spare GTX550Ti), but that'll be for passthrough rather than folding. PC is folding on the GPU 24/7, but I do manually set it "on idle" when I want to game. CPU isn't folding because that did affect responsiveness.
Secondary PC : i5-2500 non-K @ 3.8 cooled by BeQuiet Shadow Rock Slim MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming MSI GTX770 4GB (N770 4GD5/OC) BeQuiet Straight Power 10 500W. This used to be my main PC until I upgraded the CPU, MoBo, RAM and GPU. It's basically folding 24/7.
I must add that I only started folding when it got so cold that I had to turn on the heater, so right now I'm using the PCs to heat the living room. No idea yet what I'll do in the spring or summer, but I'll most likely turn off [email protected] for a couple of months when the room temp gets too high.
Ayyyyyy, finally got up and running with [email protected] Slapped my 280xs in my x79 w/ 3930k I don't think the second 280x is doing anything never messed with 2 gpus before. I'll fiddle with it in a few hours.
Also have an E5 2670 i could toss in this board not sure if that would make any improvement or not
Been folding for the team. System is an i7-4770K (no OC) with GTX-750 Ti (Asus) running Kubuntu 16.04 OS. All the folding with this system has been on the CPU. I would like to use the GPU & tried following the Cuda Install Guide for Linux , but have had no luck and feel like I'm deep in a rabbit hole. Can anyone with Linux-fu help?
Just started Folding again. Using my Old [email protected] stable since new and just updated the gpu to 960 4gb strix card last summer. I was using new drivers and only getting 140k, rolled back to 37306 and im up to around 200k per day. Probably do a new build after Ryzen comes out. 01.20, 3am 71,172 1 01.20, 12am 0 0 01.19, 9pm 0 0 01.19, 6pm 28,770 1 01.19, 3pm 31,052 1 01.19, 12pm 0 0 01.19, 9am 26,834 1 01.19, 6am 30,073 1 01.19, 3am 26,955 1
Good point. I notice bourbon warrior is still sitting at (what I believe) is the same score he had yesterday. Judging by his score... I'd imagine he folds 24/7.
Nice! I wish my GPU was on water when folding... I'd imagine it'd be so much quieter.
I keep looking for a reason to build a rig in my old Node 605, and have considered a dual GPU folding rig. I wouldn't be able to water cool 'em in that chassis... which kinda makes me NOT want to build a folding rig in it. I just like that it's a horizontal case so it's on a shelf I have, and I already own it. Too bad GPU's running full tilt are loud.
