That's a Farm. Well done.3 cores running
9800gx2 on the single slot board (thanks SKYMTL !)
8800gts on the other one
and LOTS of cooling !!
I get ~5800 to 6040 ppd from the 9800gtx, depending on the WU, the rest is from the quad. I would get more from the quad but I switch it over to Boinc once or twice a week to help out there and make sure I make the deadlines...Are those points from your 9800gtx ?
Thats pretty damn good for a single core card... :shok:
You could always upgrade the MB and PSU and have both GTX280's on your second rig, I don't think you need an SLI board to run the multi GPU client, but have not had the time to research it yet...That's a Farm. Well done.
I still have my GTX 280 for sale, and am folding on the second. I must say it's very tempting to remove both 4870s and add that lonely GTX280 to the Fold...h34r:
Sell the 4870s and go for the GTX280? But I'm waiting for full coverage blocks coming very shortly for those 2 cards, the rad and pump are ready... :doh:
GX2s should output close to ~10000ppd. 2 of them? Do the math.just wondering if im doing this right, i've got the latest nvidia drivers, and 2 9800gx2s, my cpu has 1 core at 100%, and the gpu though i dont know how to tell if any of the cores are flat out, riva tuner shows that none of them are hot at all, all 4 cores are at 62 degrees, which is idle temps and my ppu is only 4700. Am i incorrect in assuming that dual 9800gx2s should be getting more?
I would not recommend an ATI card for the time being; the output of a 3870 is ~1000ppd, while the 4870 outputs ~2500ppd. Nowhere near the ~8000ppd of the GTX280 and ~10000ppd of the GX2...Im working on another rig as well, got some spare parts like a 3870,Raptor 74,watercooling, 2x1gb Mushkin XP2 8500. I plan to buy a cheap processor and mobo to get that 3870 to work folding 24/7/365.
I of course will need some help. I promised to fold for NCIX for a while, but i plan to get a second 3870, can i use 1 for NCIX and 1 for HWC? is that possible?
How much PPD does a 3870 output btw?
Also, can you fold with your cpu and gpu at the same time in the same rig?
Ewwww, nvidia chipset....no way LoL
