Folding@home - Forgotten Folding

Postby Klimax » February 10th, 2017, 4:55 pm

https://folding.stanford.edu/

Perhaps somebody already heared about this project or even participated. In short, folding@home means using your computing power to fold virtual proteins to help fighting diseases, e.g. cancer, alzheimer. More informations can be found on the linked page. ;)

At this point I thought it would be interesting to know how much the fh2-gamers could do with their machines. At least one player - Alubat - has a high potential with his dual gpu setup. :mrgreen: since it can raise your powerbill a little, depending on your setup, not everyone ist interested. therefore f@h offers optionally setting up power mode from low to medium to full. currently my rig is running full mode (ok maybe measure power consumptin later on :twisted: ).

to see the performance in total I started the team Forgotten Folding (Team 232504)
everybody is invited to join! *looking towards ALubat*


> if you are serious into folding I recommend getting a PassKey for bonus points.
for any questions, the configuration guide is quite helpful.

cheers

Trying it :-)

Very Watt ressurce hungry

Btw. : 3 K/Watt Hour is around 1 Euro with all taxes etc. Very expensive for me :-)

How many Watt Hours You get for 1 Euro ?

Been using pc as radiator for the last couple of hours. My cpu gets 74 & Gpus 45 celcius with max fan speeds when folding at Max.
I guess my pc uses at least 500Watts when running cpu 4.5 ghz + (2xGtx1080 Gpu at 2088Mhz + 5000Mhz vram)

kwh is @,27€ currently. :roll: with a peak load of 350 watts it's definitely not a 24/7 project to me, but I keep it up until it's april or so. later on heat could become a problem. ;) after 4 hours of folding, bot cpu and gpu maxed out cpu sits at 55°C and gpu at 75°C.
not bad for basic air cooling only:

how many ppd do you reach? basically your ppd should be more then doubled with 1080^sli vs single 1070 with 570k ppd.

Think I tried folding for 10h or so at Max utilization. Pc sounds like a jumbojet when running fans at 90%. Not a sound I like.
ppd : How can I see this correct. Looks like I can only see something usefull when a cpu or gpu reaches 100% and then number changes again when it restarts ( in web control ) ?
In Fah control I see a points Per Day changing bettween 154000-155500 while folding

I wonder if my win 10 is better or worse than my win 7 partition. I get better 3d mark and passmark results in win 7.
Only tried to fold in win 7 so far

I could Fold, Seti or farm bitcoin, but I didnt build pc for that purpose. But its fun to try :-)

So I guess It will take some time, just like fh2 to get into the top 100 rank :-)
Some nice teams in the chart

Good to see that you guys are doing this, too!

Image

I've been a member of the ComputerBase-HardwareLuxx team (team ID 70911, contributing as "I_ODIUM_I")
for several years now.

Whenever my desktop PC is down- or uploading big files, say new CMP builds onto our servers or when it is doing
maintenance stuff like malware scanning or defragmenting over night, I keep Folding@home running on it to do
something useful with all the idling computing power.

My laptop is running basically 24/7 (mail, communications programmes, etc.).
Whenever I am not working on it, it is running F@H, too.

Keep up the folding! ;)
Best Regards / MfG
x4fun I<ODIUM>I.
