Re: The Hunt Is ON!

Looks OK but your ppd estimate maybe to high. Even at 4.0 Ghz you may not see 13k on most units. The NV240's I don't have, but I did not think they are that fast. I have a 250 which is a 9800gt+ and it gets around 5-6 depending on the WU. It is getting 6345 ppd on a 353 pointer right now. So maybe 4...

Re: The Hunt Is ON!

Damn, Flybywire! You mean I did not have/want to by a new box?
I thought you were going all out, so we could race again.
Oh well, it will at least get JPintO excited!

Have a great day,

Re: The Hunt Is ON!

The system you ask about is getting 24k ppd under win7 64bit. Running in Vmware player ver. 3. It also has two NV275's folding which is 17-18k ppd. It's an i7-920 at 4.0 Ghz with 6 gigs of memory. I have allocated 5gigs to the Vmware Player. Parts are arriving this week for an Identical system excep...

Re: The Hunt Is ON!

Nice points boost Flybywire! Just got the core i7 folding, had water cooler issues. Working OK with a 10 deg C. drop. According to HFM.net it is getting 22k ppd. Also have two NV275's SLI folding in it. May have to look into one of those dual socket Mbrds. Glad to see you back chasing Gerbils, and m...

Re: UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

Yes NV275 and NV285 fold better than the NV260. I have all three.
Adding a NV275 this weekend. Might put me at 80k ppd.
You Gerbils better get your Gerbil powered wheels spinning!

Some people are trying in Virtual. To use all 8 "cores" you have to use
Sun Virtual Box VM, which I have found is slower that VMware. The latest
release is a big improvement on the old versions.

Re: The Hunt Is ON!

I may try the -BIGADV switch when I put in the second NV275 this weekend. It is running Ubuntu 9.04. Folds under Wine on the GPU's. Has anyone used the -BIGADV switch? IS it that big of a points boost? Looks like 2.5 days or more to fold a unit. Not sure if it would increase points. Worth a try I gu...

I know how you gerbils feel. My bill for electrons was $425! Florida is a hot place in the summer.
So Fuzzhead shutdown 2/3 of the fleet.
Back this winter with a bigger fleet.

Re: PC has Crashed. Not sure what to do

Sounds like you tried most everything. Any beep codes? strip it down to just video, 1 stick of memory and reset the bios again. Unplug everything else. if still no go. Pull memory, no beeps means you have bad motherboard or CPU or Power Supply. Power supply is unlikely, but possible. That is all I c...

Re: Make frankenbot scary for halloween - 2008

I just added 3 overclocked 8800gt's which is about 15,000ppd.
May add more later.
Maybe that will help Frankenbot get to 100kppd.
