Default List the specs of your Duramax Diesels folding rig

User name Mike:

AMD 4600+ 64bit 2.4ghz dual core ( cheap Athlon 64 fx-60 on the way to try ) - GTX 460 overclocked to 875mhz ~ 11.5k ppd.

I run the -bigadv -smp 3

AMD Laptop 4200+ 2.1ghz dual core - snail but does contribute around 700ppd if I run -bigadv and -smp 4 and can finish in time to get bonus points. Otherwise, running 4 uni-clients nets 5 - 600ppd.

In the works

Zeon dual core 3.2ghz w/Hyper Threading - (x2) - [ server ] and linux - Windows VM x 8

AMD Quad core Opteron 2360 2.5ghz - ( Also going to try Opteron 2352 HE 2.1ghz ) (x2) with (2) - gtx 460 GPU's at x8 -[ server ] and linux.
May do the windows VM x 15 one thread will be dedicated to GPU requirements for folding. May also try the Windows Server 2003 OS.

More to come as it's assembled.

Heck, I'd have to take inventory.

Right now, not much is running:

HP i7 notebook SMP+GPU
MacBookPro SMP
2x PS3's
X6 at 3.6ghz SMP
Dual Xeon Workstation 2.4ghz BigAdv
Dell notebook Celeron 1.2ghz Classic
HP Business Model 2.2ghz? with GT220 GPU only

But I will go into the shop in the morning and turn some other stuff on.

As far as what usernames? I've used several. Eventually I'll merge them into one, but it's easier to tell what is misbehaving if I use several names.

And glad I checked. The MBP was "stuck" since yesterday, and the Celeron had Windows Update on and killed the client on reboot.

I hate that, I lost more folding time with automatic update. I set to ask first now.

Username Poltergeist-Duramax (there was already a Poltergeist folding)

Main folding rig: right now about 25k PPD should be higher but I'm having trouble keeping 1 card at full PPD (should be about 9k but keeps dropping to 3k). Running 3 GPU clients and 1 SMP client.

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz 6 x
GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD7 AM3 motherboard
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
KINGWIN Lazer LZ-1000 1000W Modular 80 PLUS power supply
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM
EVGA 01G-P3-1458-TR GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) FTW 1GB (1 of these)
EVGA 01G-P3-1450-TR GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB (2 of these)
AeroCool Shark 140mm Black Edition 140mm Case Fan (6 of these in a wood case that I built)

I am also using a rack I built with PCIe extender cables to be able to fit the video cards in and let them try and cool. Also I will need the rack and cables when I try to add more video cards to it.

Other rig: good for about 1100 PPD with the GPU client

Penium 3.2gig dual core
2 gig of ram
ATI HD 4600 series video card

This machine can't do much even just running the GPU client pushes the CPU to 50+%.

I also have a Celeron machine that I will run sometimes but it is very limited on its abilities. I've use it mostly to test stuff for the forum (running Linux) but setup a hard drive I could swap in running XP. Only good for about 500~600 PPD running a GPU client.

Running the main folding rig for what I guess was about 3 weeks of my last electric bill cost me about $60 in electricity. That would also included the 'other rig' listed above and the Celeron for part of that.

I just turned on:
4x AMD machines on SMP
1x GT240 client
1x GT430 client

My dual Xeon has a stupid owner. I plugged the network cable into the COM port (yes, they are identical on a server chassis), so it sat doing nothing.

Pat

A few days ago I was reading on the folding forum. I came across a quote you made regarding older computers you have been using for years. I just can't find the saying again. It was a four letter abbreviation. ( ???? ) what was it, or did you coin the phrase?

JUNK?

Just Useless & Needs Killing?

Or CP/M?

Command Processor for Microcomputers?

CP/M is where DOS came from, and it was the first "universal" operating system for desktops. Spreadsheets, Word Processors, Machine Controllers, and many other apps we use daily were available for CP/M, and you could buy a CP/M app and it would usually run on any machine with CP/M. DOS wasn't the spark that lit the desktop generation, CP/M was. There were even CP/M expansion cards for Apple II's. You might recognize the MFR... MicroSoft based in New Mexico.

I have 4 working CP/M machines, three are machine controllers, 1 is a Xerox 820? All with 8" 1.2mb Floppy Drives. The last of them were retired a couple months ago. The Xerox sold for about $10k new with 65535 bytes of RAM and a 8085 processor @ ~2mhz.

I also have an original DOS 80486DX-33 machine that ran for about 20 years every day.

I don't think that is what I read, could have been I guess. This was 4 letters and related to the quality of computers you have been using in your business. Basically It was along the lines of you had bought new years ago, you are able to keep it going based on you needs an was an acronym of sorts.

I don't remember. But I normally keep computers until I can't find a use for them. Until recently, most my work computers were 5-10 years old. I have two still that are ISA bus from the mid 1990's running daily, but I'm working on updating them.

Because we are going paperless soon, all shop computers that can't deal with 1920x1080 resolution, dual monitors, or Adobe Acrobat, have to be replaced.

It's no big deal, I was just going to use the term in my post. I thought that described my computers to a t.

Santa brought Dad "CrayZ3":
  • Lian Li PC-V2120 case
  • Rosewill 1000w powersupply
  • EVGA SR-2 motherboard
  • 2x X5650 Xeon processors (6 core x 2.66ghz)
  • 2x Noctua CPU fans
  • 6x 1GB DDR3-1333 RAM
  • 2x 1TB Hitachi HDD in RAID 0
  • ATI HD 5770 1GB GDDR5

It consumes 215 watts at idle, and 355 watts under max load. This is measured with a Kill-a-Watt: http://www.amazon.com/P3-Internation...3318113&sr=8-1
Runs 52C max CPU core temps under load, 29C at idle.
No stable PPD yet on it.

I'm going to run dual GTX460's in SLI on it, but they didn't arrive in time. The 5770 is a $120 card that I bought for my desk at work.
