Just getting back to Folding

Recommended Posts

Just getting back into [email protected] have a 5820K  and a Hybrid GTX 1080. Does anyone have a current link to setting up my CPU/GPU to get the best results? once I get my PC rolling want to set up my guest PC AMD FX 8320 GTX 770 Classified.

Any links to what has changed in the 3+ years I have not folded would be greatly appreciated.

For best results and less stress on your hardware,.. click Finnish on your CPU slot, and when finished with current WU go into Configure and remove CPU slot,.. then Add a few flags for GPU slot,.. next-unit-percentage 100, and client-type advanced. Then slide folding power up to Full,.. set check points up to max all the way to right which I think is 30-min.

 

It's not worth 3000 PPD running your CPU @ 100% generating all the heat/stress,.. next-unit-percentage 100 flag will only allow download of next WU after current WU is at 100%,.. your time TPF, ETA and PPD are based on time which starts the second WU is downloaded,.. and client-type advanced pays more points then reg work units,.. the beta work units pay highest PPD but can cause issues if your not monitoring your rig.

Thanks for the Advice :) First chance I have had time to sit down and look at this, work has had me chained up a bit.

I have turned off CPU in i7 Rig and I am assuming the AMD CPU will be pretty much the same?  not worth the stress on CPU?

Done done and done :)

 

 

Be sure you have a passkey and have completed at least10 WUs with it  to take advantage of the bonus points also..

and done just a moment ago :)
