I just added an FX-8350 to the folding mix today. My total budget couldn't come close an i7. However, is it any good for PPD?

 

Also, what's the new minimums for "special" WUs?

 

 

btw, with all the VMs already loaded onto this system, it's still weird to look at ~760% CPU load with just folding....

Can't help with your question although I am curious about your comment.

 

What other system you are folding on? I spun up a few VMs on a server for folding just out of curiosity, and it will literally eat the entire compute of the blade if I let it (two 6 core Xeons @ 3.06ghz +HT) pegged at 100% cpu utilization due to 1 VM, pretty amazing...

Per Hardware Canucks you're looking at 12k to 28k PPD depending on which WU.

 

YMMV.

 

ETA: Looks like the i5-3570k can easily double that, though.

This is what I know about... there are many older systems in the field. Don't know out of them if they're still running.

Office:

  • Dell OptiPlex 755 - E6550
  • Dell OptiPlex 755 - E6550
  • Lenovo M90p - i5-750 w/ Quadro FX 380 LP
  • MacBookPro6,2 - i7-M620

Home:

  • Radiant POS Server - E8400
  • New System Build - FX-8350
    • GA-78LMT-USB3
    • FX-8350
    • 32GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
    • Samsung 840 - 120gb
    • Seagate 4TB ST4000DM000-1CD1
    • Seagate 4TB ST4000DM000-1CD1

 

And whenever the truck shows up... ~130 Dell OptiPlex 9010 for system burn-in...

Seems the stock cooler cannot handle the 67C+ that was being generated. I've had to throttle back to 4 cores on the 8350 until I get the cooling sorted.
