    Shirty - you'll have to enlighten me - is that 1431W on one rig (which, at 53% load, would mean you have one uber PSU !), or is it the total load across your rigs as seen on a UPS?

    That's 4 separate rigs plugged into one beefy 2700W 3000VA APC UPS:

    Rig 1 (ATX)
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600
    MB: ASUS Prime X370-PRO
    GPU: 2 x Palit RTX 2070 Super
    PSU: EVGA 700 BR PSU
    Case: Bitfenix Nova

    Rig 2 (MATX)
    CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P
    MB: ASUS Maximus V Gene
    GPU: 1 x MSI RTX 2070 & 1 x Palit RTX 2060
    PSU: Corsair TX750M PSU
    Case: Thermaltake Versa H17

    Rig 3 (ITX)
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G
    MB: Gigabyte GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI
    GPU: 1 x ASUS RTX 2080Ti
    PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus Gold 550W
    Case: Fractal Design Node 304

    Rig 4 (ITX)
    CPU: Intel Core i3-3220
    MB: MSI B75IA-E33
    GPU: 1 x Zotac 1080Ti (watercooled)
    PSU: Corsair VS450
    Case: Fractal Design Core 500

    All rigs have small SSDs and just 4GB DDR3/4, plus a smattering of Noctua 3000rpm industrial fans @ 120 & 140mm - proper dedicated folding setups. I only fold on the GPUs so don't really factor much of the CPU TDP into the power totals, but all of the GPUs are overclocked (core only) which sucks a fair bit of extra juice.

    This is probably one of those rare scenarios where really high efficiency PSUs would make a difference, but I doubt I'll be running all of the above for long enough to pay the electricity cost back! Fun fact - the UPS reports just 10 minutes of battery life at this load.

    Yes, it's insanity.

    :brrr:

    Welcome to my world of electricity usage(!) - though 1431W is a bit lame in comparison :hehe:

    What do you reckon you're currently pulling from the wall? I'm guessing somewhere between 1550-1800W based off what I know of your setup(s).

    Budgeted an extra £200/month regardless, should cover it easily!


    EDIT: On an unrelated note, I reckon if the stars aligned on my current setup and each GPU got its optimal work unit, it would hit 9M ppd (or 11.5 if the gaming rig was folding too). As it stands I seem to be fluctuating between 7.5-8.5.

    The 2080Ti has been a mixed blessing. I have seen it vary from 1.55-2.75M ppd depending on project, a much bigger variance than any other card I've ever folded on. I can only assume that some projects are simply unable to leverage the power.

    At the moment: on the 5 rigs Folding (the test machine won't be on for much longer) and the other 3 PCs running (but not Folding) - 2276W :brrr:
    (This is quite low compared to 2016, when I was using 110kWh of electricity per day and had 10 rigs Folding ...!!!)

    Yes, that is the definition of insane. I trust you have a favourable energy tariff...

    In other news, the stars aligned a little while ago. Got some much more valuable work units being crunched at the moment, I even briefly saw 9M pod!

    I usually get lumped with six 14180s, which are middling in terms of payout.

    Finally passed through the half-billion mark on the last update :rock:

    Stats are FUBAR at the moment, always seems to happen just after I install new hardware too :rollingeyes:

    In other news, just cleared out the cupboard I've been shoving boxes in to as I've built up the folding rigs... box pr0n.

    EDIT: Just snuck inside the top 1000 on the last update. I mean, it'a a milestone of sorts.

    Good work. I've reached that break point, the no man's land between 690,000,000 and a billion. Be a few weeks before I see another climb up the charts.

    I've just noticed my output has been 0 for the past couple of weeks, haven't touched the folding PC and just see that it's on so assume it's fine. I wonder what happened, will have to check when I get in tonight!

    Nightmare! I have to keep checking in on my setup, I simply couldn't justify the expense of keeping this all running if I was getting failed WUs or stalled clients.

    There have been quite a few infrastructure issues/upgrades in the past few weeks, one of those may be at the root of your issue.

    It's well worth the time to bookmark your EOC page and check in once a day, or if you're more obsessive you can tinker with HFM.NET.

    Nice job dark_avenger :thumb:

    I must be of the more 'obsessive' variety - as you are also of course :hehe:

    I think investing several thousand in hardware probably qualifies as obsessive (or just plain nuts), whether you use HFM or not :p:

    So turned on the monitor and unlocked the pc and it seemed to be sitting there waiting/failing to get a WU?
    Didn't have time to debug so just turned it off, better than wasting the power, but hopefully I'll try to have a look at it soon, as won't be able to keep doing it much longer (meant to have sold the 2080ti August/September haha)

    F@H had a server glitch in the recent past (at Temple University) which was causing new WUs to fail to download correctly, causing rigs to hang - I had loads of issues when it happened(!) I expect you may have been hit by the same issue.

    *takes breath*

    *blows trumpet*

    *makes no noise*

    My first WU in a while will complete in a few hours...

    ...it's something I guess.
