I was waiting for you to answer the question in the old thread!

Ok Mythbusters overload, well that and the MacGyver episode they did got Me thinking about those of you in hot computer rooms.
My Computer sits on my desk right near the window ac unit, it stays cool, But it is not directly in the airflow.
My wife mentioned that the Dryer vent hose came loose....... You see where this is going already don't you........
Parts at hand for the experiment.
1. 250 CD metal tower.
2. a metal Dryer vent hose.
using great care not to accidentally short out the computer I bent the hose to fit over the CPU fan, and routed it through the CD rack so one end is over the CPU the other in front of the AC vent.
CPU is an overclocked Barton XP2500+
Celsius / Fahrenheit
100% load (running F@H)
That was with the AC on low.
current temp with it on High running at 100%
(DRUM ROLL PLEASE!)

Those are nice temps Nunya! Sweet!! Now on to spam
So on the P4 running gpu2 on the 8600GTXXX stock iam averaging 1% every 4minutes 30 seconds, when i oc the crap out of the card Iam getting the same average. What gives?
June 30th, 2008, 06:40 PM #5
I can show you pics upon pics of people doing the same thing. Hell, I built a little wood box that sits on top of the AC vent, and guess where my tower sits.
It does help quite a bit.
(BTW, that's how you know your a TRUE overclocker. When you use household cooling just on the PC.)
Have you got the new Beta6 they released? It came out like Sat or Sun. I've been running it for a day or to. No problems for me..

Hmm..Sometimes on mine it takes a second for it to realize it's going faster. Are you watching the display or something to get the numbers?
Have you got FahMon going? That really the best way to tell..
June 30th, 2008, 06:51 PM #8
I have not got around to installing fahmon on the P4, but i have been analyzing the log file and it tells me the same times wether stock or oced
I oced her last night before i went to bed

Not sure what to tell you.
DON'T OPEN THE GPU2 DISPLAY!!
I mean, you can, but it slows the crunching down by A LOT. And don't try to get your numbers from there either, they are never right.
Other then that, I'd say give the new beta a go, and see what that shows.
Might also try OCing your card with Precision. It's what I use, and it does show a difference when I OC my card..

You want Spam? You got it...
Most people don't pay attention, but the question is asked if they have anything without spam? (paraphrasing) basically She says (I know its a guy)the answer is no, but the first two options are, Egg and Bacon, Followed by Egg, Sausage, and Bacon.
Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a
Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with
truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.
Wife: Have you got anything without spam?

So could someone explain what is PPD?!?
And is it better to run the SMP client or just 2 instances of Fah (which is what I'm doing right now... one GUI and one Console as a service).boo!

PPD = Points Per Day
Basically, it's just the general figure of how many points the specific piece of hardware should earn you in folding.
You should be running the SMP client. If you have 2 CPU cores or more, then that's the best way to go.
It takes longer for a WU, but you get at least 1760 Points per WU. Instead of 50points or 30 points.

I'll check that client out once I finish what I'm currently running
July 1st, 2008, 06:42 AM #18
I should have mentioned that you can only use newer GPU's with the folding client. Anything newer then the 8800 (G80).
And you also have to have special drivers too. I don't think your current card will work.
Morning all. Busy day of burning scrap wood today.. Anybody bringing the hot dogs?
