We continually get 1 or 2 new folders every week BUT our total never changes because we keep losing folders as well.
Well, I got in trouble at school (long story), and my parents said I can't use my computer for a week.
So I'd thought I'd put it to work.
I set up the console version (one instance) on my Pentium D 945 (3.4GHz), and it finishes a WU in 36-48 hrs. (Can't remember, will edit later) Since I've read that GPU folding is faster, I got the GPU client running on my X1950pro. Since the card is OC'ed via bios mod, it overheated in about 2hrs. So after a few flashes and DirectX installs, I got it stable again, and it completes a WU in about 13hrs! (8 min per percent)
I wanted to say that I was really impressed at how fast my computer folded! Previously I was watching a 1.7GHz Pentium 4 fold, and it took 80 hrs to finish a WU! My graphics card folds six
times faster than the P4!
After seeing this success, I've decided to let the CPU F@H client run as a service (when I figure out how to do that
), and I'll run the GPU client at night and when I'm away at school.
Anyone have any predictions about how many ppd I'll be getting? And if I run the F@H CPU & GPU client when I play games, will it affect performance? I know it only uses idle CPU cycles, but how well does it dynamically reduce it's CPU usage?
