Default Going back to Folding?

I killed Miss Piggy, a SR-2 dual Xeon hotrod computer 2 years ago. I finally pulled it out of storage and fired it up.

What should I be doing with it?

Seems things changed a lot. Where would it be put to the best use?

I still fold on weekends. I'm running the 7.1.52 client. Not sure if there is a newer one or not. I'm doing 4 GPU folding. But I thought I remembered them saying that 7.1.52 would do both CPU and GPU, seems like there were settings for that when I loaded it a while back.

No, it had massive air coolers with dual fans for each CPU, plus several case fans. CPU temp was never an issue.

Windows corrupted the RAID 5 HDD array and really fk'd everything up hard.

It's running good now.

Thanks!

I'll see if I can get fired up.

Sorry guys.

I went to run it on my desktop at work, that had folded hundreds of WO's flawlessly, and within 10 minutes it crashed so hard I could not get it boot even under Safe Mode.

Don't know what fried yet, but it was a hardware. That machine is REALLY stable. It hasn't Blue Screened in 2 years, and runs 24/7/365. XP with AMD 6-core and GTX460.

Folding = expensive
Duramax hotrodding = expensive

Lol

It is basically a program that splits gigantic computer problems in parts so that a large number of normal/home computers can solve in pieces instead of multiple super computers would have trouble doing.

In this instance, it is used to analayze proteins and diseases to hopefully find a cure.

On another note, Pat I believe I have the same or maybe mine is an GTX480, that I only used for a couple months until my mobo took a shit that I'd let go cheap

OK, I found my Big Boy pants ...

It fried the video card because there was too much dirt in it, hidden under the cover.

Got it up and running.

Now to Miss Piggy. Miss Piggy is now the "minimum" big rig for the big jobs. So I'll start it out slow. Minimum is now 16 cores of CPU x 2.0ghz.

PM me a price. I'll put it to work. I'm going to find old mobo's that have been retired, put a stick of ram in them, an old HDD, a tearout powersupply, then have them drive video cards. No case. Once I get them running, I discard the keyboard and mouse.

Go to folding.stanford.org

Read up on it.

Stanford University is trying to cure diseases by analysing how proteins work.

It takes MASSIVE amounts of computer time. So they enlist the help of people all over the world to use their computers to make a SuperComputer via the internet.

You can use your computer while it's "folding" (proteins function by changing shape).

It's all for charity and science.

Note: You DON'T have to have a "hotrod" computer. But if you have a Gaming machine, they rock at folding proteins.

If you go off the deep end, you end up hotrodding some serious hardware.

One of mine is called Miss Piggy. It runs dual 6-core Xeons at 3.9ghz with 12gb of 2133mhz DDR3 ram. It is overkill for any normal application or games. If it was around in 1990, it would in the top 10 of supercomputers on earth. Things change. Now it's almost obsolete for the biggest jobs. When I was folding with it before, it was one of the fastest machines, 150k plus PPD.

If you really wanted a cool project, build a fully submerged liquid cooled setup. I think this may be something gaining some traction over the next few years.
