WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY? Your over 6k today. I need to find out hoe to get this OC'd again if i think I'll have a chance.



haha yeah, I was pretty excited about that day. My SMP WU finished just after midnight along with a big WU on the GPU so I got a lot of points that should have been from the day before, then had more finish just before midnight the next night, that was more of a random chance then consistent performance unfortunately.

Glad I got that 6k gap down to 3k, my average PPD is still below your average so one good day isn't going to make up for that.

I'm still not running VM, I'll have to look into that after my exams this week as well as setting up passkey. What are the bonus points they talked about associated with getting a passkey?

And now to start studying for my exam tomorrow, a late night it will be

Your up by 1000 for today too, thats what scares me, I know you can have one good day, but your still goin great. We will see what happens in the next couple days, but I really want to look into 3core smp to try and make more.

Your SMP doesn't run all 4 core at 100%? I only have one going and my 4 cores @ 2.5GHz are 100% constantly, with about 2.5 -3 Gigs of RAM being used. Again, this is all I got so if I cannot catch or keep up with you with this I'm done. Cannot OC the CPU and my GPU is pushed right to the breaking point.

Just looked at it, we're on pace to break top 1000 in 11 days. 115038pts is the magic number right now

Im using notfreds to fun smp, not the standard FAH windows client. Notfreds can only run 2 cores. If I run 2 notfreds, even with everything set right, GPU slows to a crawl, its not worth it. Notfred takes 2 cores, GPU takes one, and I run a standard CPU client on the free core so its not wasted. I wish I had Nvidia, it seems like they can run notfreds on all cores and fold at the same time, but my GPU seems to need the whole core :evil:

If an Ubuntu VM running SMP is compareable to efficiency to a notfred, i should be able to gain 300-500ppd(800-1k on smp, but i would subtract the 500 i get with the cpu client) running on 3 cores, if its possible.

If you don't get 10 core A2 WU's done in a VM, the 50k will drop to 25,403

10 WUs in how long? How do you get 50k, is that with the passkey?

You need to complete 10 linux xmp WU's with the passkey in the client to get the 50k. Without them, you will only get 25k.

Scared that your doing better than I can keep up with, I OCd my GPU a little. Well it seems to be working fine now... but right when I OCd it, I lost my 60% WU. :evil: :evil: Log file said NANs on GPU, whatever that means.

I lost my WU when I OC my GPU and it crashed too, bummer deal. Hopefully it wasn't one of those 1888 pointers, those things tie up my GPU for 13 hours. I'm still not even on your threats list :evil:

PC was stalled, coulda been stuck for 2.5 hours. Seems like OCing the GPU isn't working well for me, I put the memory back, and have a MILD OC on the core.

If you keep putting up 6000 point days, your ppd on EOC will fly up soon. You have been gaining on me, its just your 7 day avg is worse than mine.

when are you all going to learn that the only thing that matters in the overclock is the shaders, core and memory can be underclocked, which makes the card run cooler too. most of the heat that is produced comes from the core and memory.

I run ATI. That puts me at a big disadvantage in this race. I don't have the option to change shader clocks. As people have said, they think ATI does its work in the core. If you know that ATI uses shaders, and you know how to access them, please help, because if quickone keeps this up, I'm toast.

Just days ago I was saying the same thing about YOU! I'm sure you'll figure something out or something of mine will fail or come on hard times. Although, I would really like to catch you and be ahead for a day before that happens.

I still am not catching up to you very much, I'm still 5k down and we only have 9 days left

But if you keep putting up 6k, and I keep putting up 5, you'll win. If I OC any, its stalling, I just backed down to stock, so I'm slowing down. If I had money, now is when I would go get a gtx 260, but I dont.

Today isn't going to hit 6k, I keep getting those 1888point WU and my CPU only finishes once every 18-19 hours, the points that are about to go up is it for me today.


I loved my ATI, it was the Little 2600 That Could, but couldn't fold. If you have an extra PCI slot I'll send you my old one (parcel post of course :lol: )

And I feel you on the $$, just found out today I have to get a rootcanal! A dentist messed up a filling 5 years ago so now my tooth hurts like a bitch and just went in today and they said it is going to be $1300! And that is going to my universitys dental school.

Your down by 1.5k, My pc was basically down all day. I think it was the CPU client that stalled the thing approx 5 times. I hope that means I can OC it again, but idk. I basically lost, unless your pc takes a crap for a day or 2.
