  1. This wont be updated 24/7 but I got it working anyways....http://franz.42web.io/summary.html Thanks for the writeup @BWG
  2. In, but gimped for the time being due to some maintenance. Out for prizes. Just here to help
  3. I found the highlights at redbull.com They still have Monte and Finland available to watch but I dont know how long they keep them up. Only 30min of coverage for each day, but better than nothing. I love WRC but im not paying over $100/yr to get the official livestream at wrc.com
  4. I was able to catch the first 2 rounds of the WRC. Its been very limited coverage the last few years in the US, so it was nice to see those again, especially the Arctic rally which is always my favorite. Watching Oliver Solberg driving his first WRC stages was really fun, since I grew up cheering for his father and the Subaru team. Looking forward to the F1 season as well.
  5. HFM.net is a great tool. I have used it for a long time to monitor multiple systems across my network with a mix of Ubuntu and Windows rigs. HFM is installed on my Windows rig and it reads the client from the Ubuntu rigs, because getting that installed on Ubuntu was a PITA. I haven't used the website option in years so looking forward to this.
  6. @BWG Really nice to see you taking lead on this and getting the ball rolling. Although I tend to fold 24/7, summer is generally limited to just FaTs so I gave up on TCs a long time ago. Also my participation level tends to ebb and flow with whatever else is going in my life, so I might be super active for a week or a month and then disappear for 5 months....lol. I will dedicate my rigs to OCN until I hit 1 billion, after that I could switch my rigs to this forum and help move it up the ranks...
  7. Congrats all and thanks again @ENTERPRISE for hosting a 5 day.....errr 4 day foldathon. @MinotaurtooIm usually 24/7 stable, but of course for the foldathon one system decides to f that up. Its an Ubuntu rig and I recently upgraded to 20.04 which doesnt play well with fahclient, so Im pretty sure I know what the issue is. @Bastiaan_NL the 17800 do seem to prefer smaller or maybe older GPUs. My 1070s dont seem to notice them at all with similar PPD to other WUs but my 2060s lose 10-15% vs other projects.
  8. That is ubuntu, so he is using nvidia x server which should be installed when the drivers are installed and psensor which should also be preinstalled, but can be installed if needed. AMD definitely does something weird with their PCI lanes, when I added a second GPU to my B350 board it decided to make PCIE16_2 the primary GPU and PCIE_1 the secondary GPU, so my main GPU is limited to x4 lol. Then F@H set up GPU0(Main) as Slot 0, Bus1 and GPU1 as Slot 1, Bus10? Every intel rig I have its always bus1, bus2 etc
  9. That was really fun! Reminds me of Foldathons in my past life. Nice job everyone, next time we need to get to 100mil PPD and or 900WUs in one day. Didnt win the 3060 lottery today, I was able to click on buy now at Best Buy, but could not add to cart. Oh well. Time to rig up a 3rd 1070 in my main folding rig.
  10. I just woke up to a frozen system with a bunch of "error initializing CUDA" messages. Reset everything and it seems to be working....will dig deeper after work.
  11. I need a riser cable for that but if I add my 3rd 1070 to that rig I will test it then Ouch, good to know
  12. 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
  13. Yeah playing with power levels is something I should really try. Im on air, because New England basement temps lol Im also pushing the CPU pretty hard with BOINC projects, so it could be starving F@H the CPU headroom it needs for the GPU.
  14. Those are some healthy 1070s, Im on Ubuntu running +100 core and I am about 10% slower than you.
  15. @BWG 3 2060s 2 1070s Normally I have the 2 1070s folding 24/7 and 2 2060s go to BOINC projects. The other 2060 is in my main rig and only gets used for foldathons I have another 1070 that I might add with an extension cable or sell depending on what happens on the 25th
