OK; I just got Folding@Home installed; but it is only crunching on my Pentium E5200; NOT my EVGA NVIDIA GTX275... How do I set Folding@Home to ONLY crunch on the GTX-275??? (GTX Driver 266.58... Can be upgraded to 337.88 if necessary.)

 

In Folding@Home Log, Slot ID=0 type ='CPU' - Pentium E5200 Dual Core.

 

Slot ID=1 type 'GPU' - GTX-275 <-- Needs to be in use; but isn't being used.

 

Slot ID=2 type 'GPU - GeForce 9400. (Built-in on Gigabyte Motherboard.) <-- NOT in use by system, but looks like Folding@Home wants to use it.

 

EDIT: (Log from Folding@Home)

I'm afraid I was wrong about Folding on the video card...nothing older than a GTX460 is supported. Sorry about that, I just get excited at the promise of a new team member. Your card on the other machine will work fine, just not the GTX275. :(

Well, that sucks... :( I don't want any CPU crunching, it takes too long... I'll let this one WU finish; then, back to BOINC.

 

How do I set "No New Tasks" for Folding@Home so that only this one existing WU will finish?

Update: 18 Hrs and 40 Minutes of straight crunching since midnight Pacific Time last night... 95 % Done... That's a LONG time to crunch one WU on a CPU; isn't it??? Or do FAH Units take that long, usually??? I'm judging based on prior projects on BOINC; and, maybe I shouldn't be...

 

What's typical of a good and fast CPU compared to my older E5200 2.5 GHz Dual Core??? Also, what is typical of an average GPU???

 

I'm planning, (somehow), to get an EVGA NVIDIA GTX-750 TI SC for Prometheus... This WILL make a huge difference; and I can then dedicate Prometheus to FAH.

 

One thing I can say about FAH; in processing on CPU, my E5200 is staying in the mid 40's Celsius. This would NOT happen with BOINC. SETI and Einstein run much hotter.

My Radeon R9 280x is running about 11-12hrs. on a 13xxx WU for around 73k points. My FX-8350 CPU runs abut 4-5hrs. on a 63xx WU for around 1700 points. I've found that F@H is the best stress tester I could ever find to test a CPU or GPU on. ;)

The rig I have been folding on for the last few days has an i7 2600k CPU OC to 4.5 MHz and two EVGA 580 hydro copper classified GPUs OC TO 920 MHz. Folding over 100,000 per day with this rig.

Well you finished that work unit and it put your team rank at #16 out of 18 people folding.

Can't say I've ever run any BOINC projects, so no clue how it compares. But I was folding on an older Pentium 4 and would take about 2-3 days for 1 wu to finish.

 

This is a rather old and slow CPU though compared to what is available today.

Only reason I'm not currently running is my last s478 mobo is dead, so the remaining good components will either be donated or sold for cheap. Got an AMD Phenom X4 rig going to be started up soon though (possibility of it being upgraded to an X6 if all goes well). :yup:

Good to see your still folding with us. :)

Actually, Guns, right now I have paused Folding until I can get myself an EVGA NVIDIA GTX-750 TI SC from my local computer dealer in Pleasanton, California. On my meager income, (SSDI/Disability Income), it's going to take me a few months. I have existing bills; plus ongoing medical expenses to pay for...

 

So, for now, I'm back to running BOINC. Unfortunately, my two main Projects, (SETI@Home and Einstein@Home), are both having problems of their own. SETI is still recovering from November's big crash; and, now, Einstein is having "Upload" problems - one of their Servers has failed.

 

For now, I've changed my profile tag from Folding@Home Team to SETI@Home Team. I don't want to false advertise; since I'm not crunching FAH right now.

 

I will be a regular FAH Team Member once I have the GTX-750 TI SC in my hands to install on Prometheus. :)

UPDATE: I just looked at the FAH Client; and, it has been crunching without my knowing. This concerns me. I really don't want it interfering with BOINC; somehow, I've been lucky, and so far, it doesn't seem to interfere...

 

I did tell it to "Finish", on my first WU, and hoped that that would be it; and that it wouldn't crunch anymore... This doesn't seem to be the case.

 

I will be keeping an eye on it... I have some SETI WUs to crunch, as well as SETI Beta, and will monitor to see how BOINC and FAH play together... If they do play nice; then, I see no reason to force FAH to NOT crunch... If; however, I start losing SETI and SETI Beta WUs, I will have to find a way to permanently disable FAH until I can get the GTX-750 TI SC card.

 

I've never had two different distributed computing clients running at the same time before... I would have thought that they wouldn't work together... However; since FAH has most likely been crunching for the past few days without my knowledge, (while BOINC ran), maybe this can work...???...
