Turbo_Rage3d_ is still being judged by the masses


Talking 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!

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

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
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!

I'm prolly gonna go to liquid cooling.. This V1 can't keep this FX8320 cool enough under load for 24/7 folding. Idle I sit at 27C. Load it climbs to 52-55C @ 4.0Ghz and 1.35V.* $50 for a brand new H80i V2 is to good of a deal to pass up. (yes, its on sale.. lol) (but for $60 I can get the H100i V2.

I cant use anything bigger than a 140mm footprint because my case has no other mounts for a radiator. Not even on the top of the case as it uses 200mm fans.. with no provisions for 140mm fans. (I might have found a way to mount it though, a few others have posted ways to mod it to work. :-) )

This will help boost my PPD by about 5,000ppd. (as I should be able to get 5.0Ghz stable 24/7 with it.

*This cooler, the base is hot, fins are warmish, not hot. I just don't think the heatpipes can handle the heat output and transport it away fast enough.

I also hope Corsair releases an updated AM4 mount for it when AMD releases the hardware.

Mid 50's is still pretty good for a folding load, but if you can get another 1GHz out of those cores then a relatively cheap upgrade to H20 would definitely be worth it. Back in April when I upgraded to a larger air cooler I was able to squeeze out probably another 2-3K PPD from the OC.

It'll help you also to regain some CPU-based PPD if you add another GPU and need to free up a CPU thread for it.

Bought the H100i V2 for $49.99 shipped. Courtesy of a discount from Corsair. lol. Shipping from Newegg, ordered last night at 5ish CST.
