  1. wow... sorry to hear about the side panel... but at least you have your gpu's back up and running.
  2. Congratulations to all the winners and well done to all.... because of what this research is doing, we are all winners!
  3. Ok... bragging time... No Crash the whole time with 3 pc's in the house folding So, I'm curious... Who else can say they did not have one single system crash the whole time? before anyone says, "hey you stopped early!"... nah, I switched identities, and actually kept on folding till this morning.... so far my longest folding with out crash record is 1 week 3 days, no crash, just wanted to play some games.... now when I had a vega card.... I had crashes daily... never figured out why.
  4. @Bastiaan_NL as it turns out... you can't sell used kidneys on ebay... and for whatever reason I can't seem to find new ones...
  5. As far as I can tell based on the charts you are correct... but like Bastiaan_NL I was thinking it was 5 days at first. on another note, if this may be useful to someone... I haven't been running at full power even now... limited to 85w on my 3900x (300k ppd avg so far) and reduced power on my 5700xt, netting close 1.2m ppd average up to this point... now, if I unleashed this cpu to stock... it'll go up to about 350k ppd... with PBO limits set to mother board limits (200w) it has gotten up to 400k, but you see how the power consumption jumps way faster than ppd... gpu has a li
  6. 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.
  7. Silly question... Is the 12 units a day based on average or do we have to hit at least 12 each day... I ask because I want to change my system over to my son's username to help him reach the 12 per day average.... I realize I waited a little late to ask
  8. hmm... may just do that... it's an old rig, but at the same time, that old 6850 should be dead by now anyway... it was a very punished card back when she gamed on that system... before her health went down, she spent more time playing Dirt 2 and TDU2 than I did.
  9. oh don't worry, I came to my senses pretty quick... still, her system is only there for access to old files and retro games mostly... probably would be ok... but not going to pay 200$ for an upgrade to a 10+ year old pc
  10. yeah, mining and shortages have really increased used prices... I've seen my exact model card (Gigabyte gaming OC 5700XT) selling used for twice what I paid for it new... and some completed new listings reached 1399 USD.... spotted a used rx580 for sale on ebay a minute ago... 200$... and actually thought about buying it for my wife's old rig, which is still running a 6850HD
  11. An FX system is why I have the extreme cooling setup I have now... ever cpu folded with an FX clocked to 5.2 ghz?... I did by accident, didn't know the client would auto start when installed... was planning on just folding on my 7950's
  12. Interesting... May not be gpu then... But, still it's a possibility... Folding isn't easy on hardware
  13. Betting gpu crash... That card wasn't stable enough at 2150mhz as I recall... You might could turn the fans up to hair dryer and make it stable.... I don't even have mine oc'd at the moment... Just power limit maxed out...
  14. @Imports_R32 may be a bit warm on the CPU, but nothing unexpected with that cooler... Your vrm temps are good considering the crowd of wires in that case... And gpu temps are pretty normal for that card... Don't compare your temps to mine, they are not normally as low as mine are... Rather compare to others with air cooling and I think you'll feel better... Until you put that side panel on ... Then the heat is on.
