In. Bastiaan_NL Add me for 24 hours of RTX 3090 folding, for someone who earns <5 million PPD. 

Off to the races! Had to shut off the R9 Fury X due to tripping the circuit breaker, but we got the 980 ti, 1080, Vega 64, and 2070 going strong.

In, but gimped for the time being due to some maintenance.    Out for prizes.  Just here to help

I'm going to take a pass on this one... there is a high chance of severe storms here.  Power is already unreliable here and I'm not sure how much I trust my old (10 yrs +) UPS to work properly under full load.  If things settle down, I may jump in for a few work units, but just leave me out of the prize drawing if I do.

Don't think I don't see your numbers @Bastiaan_NLHow many of your families cards do you have running for this one? 🤣

I found out my grandma upgraded her HTPC with a 3080, so she was generous enough to let me use it for the comp :classic_biggrin:

But seriously, it's only the main six cards folding: 2x 3090, 2080ti, 2080s, 1660ti and the 1650s. Pretty hot in the house right now, I'm sure I had a few good units looking at all the temps!

I can take that question. Enough to beat the whole team combined?

Not if everyone is online, maxing out at a little over 30 mil ppd if every client is working on a "good" unit. Lowest today was 21 mil with 13466 units on all the cards.

He already lost. Last month. I as the reigning champion will gladly accept him getting dolled up as a prize. 

Haha, I'm not going to do that 🤣

How the hell did your grandma get a 3080 and I can't find anything but a 1050.  THATS IT! I'm becoming a Nederlander.

There are cards in stock over here, but the webshops are scalpers now... For a 3080 they are asking well over what I paid for a 3090 a few months ago, I really feel sorry for anyone thinking that it's worth the money. 
And feel free to become a Nederlander, if you don't mind paying $0.30 per KWH :classic_laugh:

My Grandma and 3080... That's just marvelous! Grandma's rock!

It would have been cool, but she doesn't care about anything tech related.

Expecting severe weather in my area tonight. Hope the power grid holds, but it's unlikely.  Might go down at some point.

 

Also, @Bastiaan_NL I have not seen any of those good WUs you talk about. I think they might only be for the 3 series.

Bah! Knew it was coming. Based on my update, looks like the power failed at my house. Whelp GG.

 

Iv'e got the 2 2x2080TI rigs on UPS's. Though they can only go 5 minutes while folding. The Teslas aren't so fortunate.

There is a lot more difference between a 'good' vs 'bad' unit on a 3090 than a 2080. The 13446 units are around 6.5 mil ppd, a 16604 unit is around 8.2 mil ppd and a 17730 can be up to 9.4 mil ppd.

Nice, another 6mil ppd :classic_biggrin:

Also, slot type: CPU Core 22, that's weird..

Not until I can get home, but storms are supposed to turn severe overnight. I might just stop the rigs all together till morning. I don't want to risk it.

I would do the same with lightning, but besides that there's not a big chance of power loss over here.
Stay safe 👍
