    I just wanted to say, I am so very happy and finally I'm making some proper points too.

    Today I overclocked my i7 860 to about 3.8 GHz and decided to take a plunge and see what's this all -bigadv flag about ) Bare in mind at stock speeds my CPU returned 8000 PPD at most. And now?

    Give it, it's at the cost of very high temperatures. Fractal Design R3 is a lovely case, but even though I now occupied all fan slots and run with Corsair H70 + 2 fans, it seems this set up is way too much for that case.

    Now, some saving up to move to different case that will be also able to house my new water cooling loop that's coming soon :) Any ideas as for the case? I'm looking towards Corsair 800 for now.

    Advice please, working through my 10 wu before adding the bigadv ( on 8 now), OCed to 4.2 on a 9.50 but MHz on HFM is 1??? Shouldn't it be 4.1 something???

    AFAIK the megahertz column in HFM doesn't show any real-world measurement, but you can edit it so that the PPD/Hz column shows a possibly useful number.

    OK on first bigadv but not really sure if I am. Unit P6051 And rest are all P6. 18000ppd. Is this right.

    Have Flag -smp 8 -bigadv -verbosity 9.

    Cheers

    According to this this P6051 is not a -bigadv project. They have been in short supply recently. But if you get one, you'll find the TPF is 30-40 minutes, which is significantly longer than 'normal' WUs

    I'm only on my second bigadv, but my TPF on them is closer to 50 mins, i7 @ 4Ghz smp 7. I'm only getting 18K ppd :( p2684, ppd is not much more than what I get on the normal units.

    TPF of 50 minutes is too slow, you won't get any bonus points. You may need to experiment with the -smp7/8 flag. Any reason why you are using -smp 7?

    Anything below 57 minutes should get a bonus.

    Cheers, TPF = 31ish. Never realised how long it takes for a WU, OCed to 4.2. So its got a busy week ahead. Where the GPUs are 26k ppd in 3-4hrs.

    Is there a way I would be able to monitor through HFM at home what my PCs at work are doing?

    You can set hfm to send files to another hfm instance at home or set it up to ftp the files to a webserver like in the link in my sig

    I've got two GPUs folding as well, and the TPF lowered when I changed it to 7.

    TPF at the moment is 48 secs, the first one I did finished in time with over half a day to go according to HFM.

    As an experiment last night I moved the p2684 work folder at 33% completion from my i7 to my i5, the i7 then picked up a p6900, the ppd on this was 28K, that said the i5 was doing TPF over a minute, so I swapped them around them around again, and the i5 is now doing the p6900 @ 52 mins ppd. I'll probably end up with no bonus points on either of them :D but I do like to try these things
