    Re: Folding Chit-Chat

    Well that's just not true. In folding AMD cards are slower. In BOINC and Bitcoin nVidia cards are slower. It's all about the application.

    Regarding the CPU, yes, it's just strange how AMD's...

    Re: Folding Chit-Chat

    Yup, no question about it: an overclocked SB i7 will waste a 1055T, even if it's at 4GHz. From the charts - up to more than twice as many PPD.

    When it says SMP, it means it's not bigadv (those...

    Re: Folding Chit-Chat

    Actually, I might take a break from folding for a bit - I found a new use for bitcoins, so might get back to mining a bit.

    Oh and FYI, just checked, at stock voltage it's stable up to 3.6GHz (3.7GHz fails folding after a couple of minutes).

    Since it's second-hand (got it from a fellow folder for free), I know it's capable of 3.9GHz full whack; but that's obviously with a raised voltage. Trying with stock now - I only have the patience...

    I haven't overclocked it, I undervolted - it's running 3.4GHz at 1.264V; I've no clue what the stock voltage is.

    EDIT: as I suspected, stock is 1.35V, so I'm running 0.086V lower. It gives a...

    Re: Folding Chit-Chat

    Well, since it's a Gigabyte MoBo, the BIOS is completely useless.

    I use EasyTune and it's set that up to 48C the fan should run at 25% (apparently when it's lower it doesn't kick in at all), from...

    Heh, when my CPU's not folding, the Mugen 2 keeps it at 40C passive (CPU fan stops completely). Nice :)

    Oh, my other fans are already at 7V - the 92's are spinning at 1200RPM (instead of 1500) and the 120 is spinning at what I'd guess to be around 700-800RPM (that header does not report the fan speed...

    Folks, what do you think: is 47C for a Phenom II X4 965 okay with a Mugen II Rev. B?

    My Katana III was doing 50C, although was far noisier - even though the Mugen is also spinning at its max RPM....

    Actually, you need 8 threads to do bigWU, but people just "choose" their number of threads running virtual Linux machines with Phenom II X6es.
