  1. PSA: If you have been folding since the start and your systems haven't crashed yet, they are stable. That is all, have a great day.

  3. Ok, well Florida had a rare little thing called a Cold Front. Now that i dont have to run my A/C 24/7 i decided to bring out all my hardware. I aint no 7th Realm God like Avacado or Bastiaan. But hopefully i can nip at the heels of the gods like a chihuahua. Added in a GTX 780, RX 570, R9 270X, and a Intel i3-9100f. The other board is only a skylake pentium so it already has its hands full just trying to exist. Of course the MSI ITX Board for the 9100f refuses to be stable in existing so only 2 cores folding for the 9100, 3 it crashes because why not. Added up its about another 900-1mil ppd on

  4. Built this test bench today. I still have to do some grinding and file work, and I might paint it.

  5. Just a heads up. This is a great thermal pad that is my second go to next to Fujipoly. I have never found the thermalright pads on anything except aliexpress. These pads are 12.8 W/mk and are priced great. I found them on Amazon today with free prime. My stock was running low and was looking to re-up and found them. Posting here for fellow members to see if interested. Looks like they only have 0.5mm and 1.0mm (Guess I bought the last of the 1mm) available. https://www.amazon.com/nkomax-Thermalright-Conductive-Resistance-Temperature/dp/B08CGL7MLN/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&

  6. Thanks to everyone who participated, organized, donated and coached. I was hospitalized on thursday due to covid complications and got out today to find my computer didn't die AND I had won a prize. 3 gifts in one day and it's not even my birthday!

  7. I like it. I have a few very similar benches w/o the acrylic. I just spaced the crossbars to match the standard ATX dimensions. The "i need to be able to stuff more GPUs in this rig extended height edition"

  8. Well it didn't lose any water overnight. I siliconed the outside rims twice more. This pump/block is like a cursed item I cannot rid myself. I keep finding myself compelled to mess with it. I found just the right crusty old fan to go on the radiator, and old original sickleflow. I need to let this thermal adhesive dry a little longer on these aluminum chunks, otherwise it's ready to test. Everything is tight asf with zip ties. Oh one finishing touch!

  9. ...interested to find out what level it is at in the morning. As to cheap universal GPU coolers, there's always 'Banggood.com' (no, really) >here ...slightly more expensive (than $5...) is the Swiftech mcw82; I've used several of them for tri- and quad SLI w/o any issues in the past. FYI, depending on the GPU your son wants to w-cool with a universal GPU cooler, he would also need to rig up a fan to cover the VRM & VRAM ...speaking of Banggood.com , here's s.th. @Avacado , @Bastiaan_NL , @BWG and their fellow folding enthusiasts would probably like...

  10. Stats on the spreadsheet are final now, thanks for participating everyone, you may return to your regularly scheduled gaming and mining, or keep folding, whatever tickles your fancy.

  11. Thanks to everyone who participated ! I will do prize drawings over the coming days. Winners will be announced in this thread and contacted for any further necessary details via PM. Great job all !

  12. And that's a wrap, well it was 15 minutes ago, but I was cooking Udon and Veggies, stats update in 10 minutes for finals.

  13. Yes this may be a double-post, but it's new content so I'm deeming that as an okay excuse. The stats page has been updated to show your current Prize Tier based on Actual Average WU/day: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vTCHyCWqzzOn58g9qkJ7GBHbjJgdrT2y0sCuUYz44dGiwoFEAlURi8KQsTzeJIPV3HDv6bWb36uw5JI/pubhtml?widget=true&headers=false#gid=2029153325

  14. And then I found this. Half the cost and 12 w/mk. https://gelidstore.com/collections/thermal-pad/products/gp-extreme-thermal-pad-series-1mm

  15. Yeah, best bet is to reserve IP addresses by MAC address in your router so that the device can still stay as simple DHCP, but will always get the same IP address from the router.

  16. Very glad to hear you recovered. I hope you were not ventilated. Take extra Vit D and some ibuprofen for a bit. COVID is very inflammatory and causes lasting cardiac damage. If you have any questions unanswered by your primary care doc, shoot me a PM.

  17. So this is a story of a computer issue that I've had for a long time that has spanned several configurations and still plagues me to this day. Maybe someone will enjoy hearing about my suffering. So I have two 4k TVs setup next to each other both hooked up to gaming PCs that my gf and I use to game. The problems all started with Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Wildlands is a coop game that we played together. One PC had a 3770k @4.2 with a 1080ti and the other was a 2600k @4.5 with a 1070. Every game we played together ran as expected, meaning better performance on the 1080ti

  19. I can see how people would do that. This is me flashing BIOS.

  20. I'll be leaving a 2080S and a 5700XT up and folding for a bit.

  21. I started my first overclocking adventures in 2001, especially when I got my first T-bird! I got very hooked! Emulation resulted in me getting hooked! Especially July 1, 2003, when I got my first Thoroughbred processor, despite I got it with a motherboard that wasn't made for CPU overclocking, but at least got a PSU that worked better for the time being, until October, 2003, when I got my first upscale PSU, the Antec True 430, which I never saw visibly bad caps, ironically. Got lucky with my 2003 True 430 1.0, because it looked like most made after mine had bad caps! Mine at least lasted

  22. ...you might be able to do it via the voltage curve option in MSI AB after all, using the curve in the coordinate table to locate the voltage corresponding to the clocks you want, then limiting the max voltage to that. > Here is more on that process, though keep in mind that that write-up is for maxing GPU clocks...steps to limit clock via voltage curve adjustments operate on the same principle of modding the curve though. One thing to keep in mind is that NVidia boost algorithms (especially the recent ones) are also highly affected by GPU temps (and thus indirectly by ambient w

  26. As an innocent bystander to this 'skirmish' looking to learn about folding, 'grats & kudos to you all... ...it was a hoot to follow here, and I learned a bit about folding. I used to think, even after doing sub-zero XOC for years, that old hardware never really died but just ended up taking a long fiesta in the storeroom or years - but clearly, I was wrong.

  27. Good effort guys! I barely made it into T1 lol I'm def in it for the next one too, was pretty fun.
    2 thanks
  28. It's over already? Screw it, I want a top 10 spot for my own bragging rights. Still folding, come at me bro. @BWG @ENTERPRISE @axipher Seriously though guys, that was a lot of fun. Wish I'd have not taken time off for gaming during the competition that one day . Also woulda been nice had I not been lazy and gotten everything functional beforehand. But ah well. When's the next one?
    2 thanks
  29. It didn't leak while running overnight so I think I'm going to flush it really good now. I'm guessing that there must be a really hard crust like you said (we call that a protective oxide layer in the nuclear reactor world). I'm thinking maybe boiling water, acetic acid, shaking, ect, but I'm not going as far as the HCl route. We're thinking of mounting this on one of our junker graphics cards to see how well it does. My teenage son is very involved in this project, and stuff like this is like a science lab for him. He came up with using the mason jar as a reservoir for me yesterda

  30. Technically it was per day. However it may be more beneficial to do an average, so that is what I will do.

  31. I'm coming for them top spots guys...... with my arsenal of e-waste garbage, I'm coming!

  32. I compared x16 vs x4 on my 1070s recently. CPU 1700x, Mobo B350 PCIe 3.0 slots I used the same 75 Projects, but PPD still varies between WUs in the same project so.... x16 GPU Average 1,280,295 PPD x4 GPU Average 1,258,435 PPD 2% difference on GTX 1070s
    2 thanks
  33. That is a cool test, the bottom is cut off, but the 26.26GB is bandwidth @4.0? This is "Currently" not relevant to folding as you get 100% PPD @ 8x on PCI-e 3.0. Meaning ANY bandwidth above is just over kill. And it also means don't pay the premium for 4.0 risers when 3.0 risers on a 4.0 capable lane will do just fine.

  34. @ENTERPRISECame across this video, it is of a K80, but the principle is the same, it might give you an idea to cool these bad boys without needing to buy specific coolers for them. P.S. Do you know what software he is using to monitor his card???
    2 thanks
  35. So now I have to clean my keyboard and monitor, thanks for that [edit] added to my sig Powerlevels, coreclock and enough CPU cores make a lot of difference. I see around 10% increase in TPF if the CPU is busy (not 100% usage). Increasing the powerlevel comes with extra heat and costs, that's up to you. [edit] 92 million yesterday!

  36. Shared this on our social media ! Will complete form shortly too.

  37. They had me a "free gift for new user" if you spend at least $1. Reminds me of aliexpress.

  38. That's why I let my computers do the folding for me... By the way, you can see how many 17800 units I received the last day. 120 units for 18 mil points and the day before was 87 units for 20 mil points. Those units are way too small to load big GPU's, it has been a subject of discussion on the folding forum too. Did notice anything with those units on your systems? I share that feeling, good old times with 3 computers in my bedroom at my parents house That is a lot of wu's per day! Ikr? I'll leave one system online for now, both the 20

  39. GG everyone! Well played, except @Bastiaan_NL, you are terrible at folding
    1 thank
  40. 2.89 mil To be honest, besides a few hours of gaming I was really trying. Picked up a few units for 4 mil ppd on a 3090, that's what you get for removing the beta flag and the 1080ti was acting weird. You are still in the lead, and I'll be playing CoD all evening (next 4 hours or so). After that I'll be back at 24ish mil ppd

  41. Yes for sure. The asus zenith extreme is a beast. Has 2 aux 8 pin 12v and a molex below the 6th pcie slot. I am actually swapping everything right now!
