My New q6600 Folding Rig - Screenshot



Two SMP clients running with FAH Affinity Changer 1.0.2

Pretty decent first post?

Any tips for improved performance?

Very nice man :FAH

Welcome to EOCF

as for tweaking performance, take a look at the intel section for wondrous ways to crank more from your Q6600

You can see my overclock there in CPUID (CPU-Z).

Other than that, just make two folders (in my case FAH1 and FAH2) and run one instance of SMP client from each folder. (First time running them, use the -configonly flag and set FAH1 to 'machine id 1' and FAH2 to 'machine id 5')

Once you're up and running, make sure you have FAH Affinity Changer running in the background as a service (the only way that it will install.)

That's all I did!

Let me know what happens with your setup...I'm curious to know how my overclock compares.

Im not overclocking, my board isnt adaquate for that, that will soon change :P

But im still confused to see 4k ppd from one machine.

So even with a stock clocking q6600 i can see a similar boost?

Thanks mate.

You should see improved performance, but not like the overclocked PC. I've overclocked from the stock 2.4 Ghz to 3.375 Ghz. Across 4 cores, that's an extra 3,900 MHz.

Higher Ghz = less time per frame. Based upon Pooper's screenshot his quad is working on 2 1760 pt WUs. His quad at 3.375 is going to complete frames at a quicker rate than a stock quad.

He also has the better OCing q6600 with the newer "G0" stepping which overclocks better.

I got that at first, but I had to make sure that I started both clients almost at the exact same time, and the errors went away. The same was true for closing the clients. If I closed one client and left the other open, the open one would fault.

Is there any sort of way to run two instances like that in Native Linux, using some sort of Affinity changer?

If there was an affinity changer for Linux, I'd sure use it!

The only way that I know how to do it with Linux is to run VMware - two instances of Linux, each showing two cores. Then, you have to wonder about the processor overhead being used to run all 3 OS's.

I can tell you from experience that running VMware in Kubuntu 7.10 64bit running 2 Ubuntu 64 bit clients with 2 cores each has increased my folding ppd vs 1 smp client. It was taking me about 13 hours to run 1 smp work unit where with the VMware clients it takes me about 20 to 21 hours to run 2 work units.

Linux is better at managing threads than windows I believe.

Correct, but I think what he meant was that he SHOULD have put in 11314.
