Thumbs up Folding again!

Using some BDay money I was able to purchase a new setup for my 2xGTX260s.

I'm using:

- Asus M4N75TD mobo (nforce 750a)
- AMD Athlon II X2 250 (dual core 3.0GHz)
- 4GB GSkill PC3 1333

And miscellaneous older hardware (I already had a nice Corsair HX650 PSU).

I should be running ~12K PPD with this setup. I'm currently running my shaders at 1500MHz, but should be able to bump them up to 1700-1800 once the basement cools down a bit (it's on the warm side right now, party because I need to keep a dehumidifier running most of the time).

I need to quiet it down a bit too, the 120mm Medium speed Panaflo fan is pretty noisy - well past comfortable. I'll probably use a hole saw to get 2-3 92mm fans mounted on the case side panel soon - that would be nice.

I'll need to wait till fall starts before I'll be able to add my main machine to the folding mix on a part time basis.

Fold on!
-AJ

Re: Folding again!

Thanks! I won't be competing with VSEKH any time soon, but I'm already the second highest in daily production for ABXzone
Though, that is sad is some ways.

Re: Folding again!

It would be good if a folding member who has some spare time could do an article about folding, the project, how it works and the objectives.

Re: Folding again!

Maybe I'll update this thread: http://www.abxzone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30143

At the moment, it's in the 'sometime' aka 'no time' category.

Re: Folding again!

Well, Bridaddy is back in the number 2 slot (in PPD) but I've been able to bring my PPD up to around 25K with a third GPU folding.

If you want a quick and easy way to get back into folding check out this page:

Official FAHControl for F@H. It's working well for me and setup was a snap.

I'm amazed that we have no one folding in the "1.5K+' category - very said

Re: Folding again!

Welcome back!
I was just looking at some of the top members in the team list. Many of them are no longer active.

Yes it is I'm glad VSEKH is still folding for us! I've bumped into him on the FAH forums, too bad he doesn't pop in once and a while.

Re: Folding again!

I've backed way down because of electricity cost. I had also lost my video card and didn't have the $ for one that could do heavy folding.

Maybe next year I'll have the resources to fold full time again but for now it's just hit or miss.

Good to see you around Dave. Some Folding is better than no Folding. :-)
