I'm Back!
 
Well it has been a long while since I was here and folding for Rage3D, but I just added an ASUS Strix R9 380 to my poor aging Phenom II X6 1055T rig and wow earned 86k+ points already today (man I remember years ago, being excited to get 100ppd)

On a side note I passed 7 million points also!

I'm folding at least til I find out how hard it'll hit my power bill!

jima13 Jul 26, 2016 09:22 PM

Welcome back! :D I've been down several months and am just getting going again myself. Hope we can give this team a kick in the quads :lol:

Turbo_Rage3d_ Jul 26, 2016 09:36 PM

Thank you!!! I hope we can! It would be great to see the team climbing up the boards again!

Lupine Jul 27, 2016 01:43 AM

Welcome back! :D

I saw you were putting in points again - welcome back Turbo!

Seeing your handle brings back some memories ...

WOW I had forgotten about that! Has it really been that long ago?? Well I'm no "burn in" but I am crawling up the top producers list!

jima13 Jul 29, 2016 12:14 PM

Getting there...
 
Still have 5 systems out of service, but should have 2 more back up by this time next week. The other 3 are pretty old and not worth my investing time/money in. :fold:

Turbo_Rage3d_ Jul 29, 2016 01:51 PM

With 5 down, you're still the top producer :fold:

Turbo_Rage3d_ Jul 29, 2016 11:30 PM

Well I had some kind of hiccup her at home today, but I think I've gotten things straightened out, and production back on target.

jima13 Jul 30, 2016 01:37 AM

I had some issues on one system with core 18 not working; kicked it a few times and it started working again :D

Turbo_Rage3d_ Jul 30, 2016 10:39 AM

:nuts: looking back over my logs, that looks like what happened here and maybe a not so stable overclock:nuts:

jima13 Jul 30, 2016 11:09 AM

I read that Win 10 installing drivers can mess up FAHcore so if it happens again I'll do a clean install from nvidia. This system has win 7 pro and only issue is cpu not picking up any work right now....

curio Jul 30, 2016 11:27 AM

I'm just waiting for the summer temps to go down a bit before I start things back up again.

We're getting new windows installed around the house starting on Monday though, they're over twice as energy efficient for both hot & cool days so that should help a lot

Hopefully that's DarkFoss' excuse too :p :p

I have my R9 nano waiting to fold, but I've been using the card for level design work all summer and it seems I cannot fold and use the card for anything else... so only CPU folding for me :cry:

Yo Turbo, welcome back!! I'm here posting this cause I went by ExtremeOC stats today and was like, WTF??!!! :lol: :lol:

Thanks Man, it's good to be back.....but I seem to be having consistency issues....I'll try to iron them out when I get home tonight. It's been too long since I'd been here, going to try and keep that from happening again.

Turbo_Rage3d_ Sep 2, 2016 08:05 AM

:nuts: Don't really know what happened yesterday, but both my GPU folding rigs stopped folding, the r9 380 had a fahcore crash, and the 970 turned a wu in and then never got a new 1.

Restarted the 380 rig, problem fixed.

The 970 wouldn't get a wu after restarting, did a driver update, restarted & it's folding again....hmmm go figure.:nuts:

absolutefunk Oct 22, 2016 05:55 PM

Yo Turbo, I noticed you and I are jockeying for that 34th position in the team rank :lol: :lol: You took it from me a couple weeks back, and I took it back a few days ago :D

And tonight I'll be folding again!! But I doubt I'll catch up soon!

Thanks man! I hope I'll get my other rig up again in the next week or so, but I still won't be putting out the PPD you are, I'll be closer though

Sweet! Every rig helps the team (which has been hitting near 5MPPD lately :drool: )

Thank you! If all goes well I'll be adding a couple 780s to the fold also.

Flyordie Dec 7, 2016 06:28 PM

Woohoo! Hopefully we can maybe try and bring the team back to the top 10. :-p (Wishful thinking, I know)

That would be nice! 2X 780s will give you some huge PPD increases for both you and the team :-D :drool:

There was a time in the not so distant past when we were barely over 1 MPPD as a team; now we are playing with 5 MPPD :D If we can get some of our power folders back online again, then I think top 20 is reachable. We have the community for it, I think we just need to get the word out there to the rest of the Rage community.

Flyordie Dec 11, 2016 11:43 PM

Brought my down for a few hours to do a thorough cleaning. CPU Temps dropped 9C. lol. That heatsink was pretty caked.. lol.

GPU wasn't much of a change as I had cleaned it real good a few weeks prior.

But, back up and folding 100% now.

Well we'll have to figure out how to get the word out, I noticed lately I've been passing people I thought I'd never have a chance to catch, like Caveman-jim & Lupine. How much additional ppd you think 2x780s will give me?

I'm going to have to do that again myself in the near future.

Should be about 600-700K PPD :cool:

Regular 780s or 780 Ti's?

Regular 780 = 180-190Kppd. (They are severely limited in clockspeed to around 1Ghz usually)
B1 Stepping 780Ti = 260-280K ppd (assuming a 1,150Mhz clockspeed on the core)

PER CARD.

Haven't got them yet, but they are regular 780s, so a ~360k boost in production would still be sweet.

Specs show 980 base...

I was way off :lol: My calculations were based on some benchmarks which are typically accurate, but I think around ~190K PPD is more accurate now that I think about it in comparison to a 680 I briefly folded on.

Flyordie Dec 15, 2016 05:53 PM

I wonder if it would be worth while to ask around to see if anyone has any low end GPUs like the 750Ti etc... I'd love to add more to my [email protected] PPD and really i'd add any card that'll get points since my PCIe slot is empty... might as well fill it.

I asked my roommate last week if he had any spare GPUs for that same purpose :lol:
I now have a 560ti on my desk waiting for a new home (which won't happen until January - I'm shutting down my servers this Wednesday due to planned power outages over the Christmas break, and I won't be back to boot them until first week January).

I'd say go for it!
