    Just GPU atm, and seems to be back on track. I'd like to do CPU also, but my cooler really can't handle it.

    Off topic - I've been having a lot of issues with Nvidia drivers for months, and rolled back to 436 to get some stability in games. It seems there are a lot of posts online about issues in DX12 game (Forza being the ones that crap up for me).

    I'm not sure what was going on yesterday but even the F@H client was dying after a few %, but then could complete 20 loops of 3D Mark stability test and pass it (99% stable).

    I should probably do a fresh install of Windows as well if anything, this 'install' is a hack job on to an NVMe which is 2 years old.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    I've also had some Nvidia driver issues myself lately; whether it's the drivers at fault or something else causing the issue I don't know, but sorting the drivers sorted the problem. But I'm still getting a disappearing scroll bar in Chrome, dunno if that's related.

    Basically I was having a few games crashing, way more frequently than normal, and for some reasons the game crashes were taking Discord out too. When I tried to install the latest driver (a few weeks back at least), it didn't finish installing properly and threw up some errors. Then the Start menu wouldn't work. A reboot fixed the Start menu but I was still getting the general game instability.

    I tried ticking the fresh install option and reinstalling the drivers. Didn't change anything and it still broke the Start menu.

    Then I ran DDU to completely strip out the driver and install it fresh. This fixed things. Like I say I don't know if it's Nvidia's driver package at fault or something else meddling where it shouldn't be, but that procedure seems to have fixed the problems I was having. And the install didn't break the Start menu either!

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    Seems my 7 day total (+1 hour) is 2,383,519, not bad.

    I guess looking at the less work units compared to others this is based on newer hardware processing faster so much more credit per work unit.

    Its not about the numbers and tables but I have caught the bug anyway.

    On the driver front all fine here on AMD, I did have to knock my GPU memory clock down slightly it did seem a little optimistic at 925mhz but wasn't having any issues (or so I thought), back down to 900mhz.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    You do seem to be rocketing up. I wonder if you get fairly juicy CPU cores too if it knows you're on a core/thread monster like Zen2? My CPU ones are worth around 200 base credits on a 6700K, or at least the ones coming through are worth that.

    On the GPU front that's probably the best call of action. If I drop my GPU clocks down by 100MHz it only makes a 1/2c difference in temp and adds a second or two to the TPF.

    Current CPU task has a base on 1000 current estimate 10321.

    Core on my GPU is hovering around 1600mhz, currently under volted to get there.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    Been running Linux all day which only does CPU folding as I don't like using the official AMD drivers and for some reason Folding at Home doesn't seem to like the ROCm opencl. Annoyingly, the WU seems to be running really slowly, so there goes my average. Oh well.

    I'm kind of shocked to be at the top of the team top 20 producers leaderboard though with two PCs that I thought were pretty average. Thought we would have some 2080 etc owners leaving my kit for dust. The Ryzens are good, but most of my score is coming from GPUs, and I always buy for value not speed!

    We must think in a similar way with hardware as we have arrived it similar specs, Not sure how much better a 2080 would be compared to a vega but either way we are doing a bit I know people generally preferred AMD over nvidia for mining.

    Every once in a while somebody being clever will ask what games uses 64gb ram, the usual answer is photo/video editing, as it is 12Gb is cache for those 'slow' NVME drives currently.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    Gah. I'm not getting any GPU stuff come through yesterday or even today now.

    They must be struggling massively with generating them or processing existing ones?

    Mine is doing GPU after GPU task with a few CPU chucked in.

    I'm not sure why, but I've easily done 4/5 WUs over the past two days that aren't coming through on the Extreme Overclockers page/signature.

    There seem to be plenty of niggles and oddities in the system.

    My machines keep rejecting bad work units. Perhaps they are only tested on Nvidia cards or something.

    Please note that page uses American timezone as a reference so it might be the work isn't lining up with time how you'd expect it, has confused me before.

    If it isn't that, then I can guarantee you it's because the official F@H stats servers are being punished. I was getting bad gateway checking them just now as my most recent WUs aren't showing anywhere. The EOC site has to source its data, and if they can't then it'll all just suddenly appear when the F@H stats page returns.

    Also, I'm folding again now. Didn't like seeing the names catching me 500k a day..

    Even the EOC is only showing as 1 completed yesterday though which would be my GPU return but I also did a CPU one worth about 8K which isn't there. On top of that, my other results up above I'd mentioned are missing

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home



    You know, the strangest thing is happening, I'm gaining points now but I'm going *down* the world rankings not up! If all I can do is fight for a top 3 in Hexus then so be it.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    This first bit of sun has made it noticeably warmer with the GPU churning away.

    On a side note - has anything ever actually come out of F@H that has been useful?
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
