Re: Folding Year 13 Folding Community Contest 2021/01/30 09:00:11 (permalink)
Question for those in charge of this contest: I cannot fold full time for various reasons, but I'd be happy to fold part time (would be at least 3M PPD) for the contest, simply to contribute what I can, just wondering if that's okay or not :-D
 
I feel like it's not talked about enough that eVGA actually gives you free eVGA Bucks for folding (up to 10 a month, it's not a lot, but it's something!) as long as you have your account setup properly.  And you only have to do 30M points a month to get the 10 eVGA Bucks, which is 1M/day, something I think just about everyone could do if they wanted to unless their GPU is actually ancient lol
 
I'm throwing some units at my Kingpin today to see how it does at various clocks, as sort of a secondary test on my current Undervolt/OC setting that was stable for Cyberpunk 2077 so far (2100MHz @ 1025mV which is pretty sick).  Looks like for tis particular unit it's going to be hovering around the 42C mark & getting around 7.8M PPD if it were folding full time.
Probably the most inefficient price per point card available, but during the day at least, it's pretty much free folding (we're on solar & it's only drawing ~320W).

Folding 24/7 is not a requirement, we're happy to have anyone in the contest that wants to participating in Folding @ Home for the greater good! 
 
Many people fold part of the day as they are able for a wide variety of reasons (availability, gaming, power consumption, etc), either in their regular folding or contest participation.  You should, however, fold regularly throughout the contest period i.e. fold everyday that you are able and not just a few days at the start of the contest.

Just looking at a Team name based on
E..V..G..A
Every Viral Genome Analyzed
or
Every Viral Gene Annihilated
or??
 
But I am not scientifically minded enough to do it..
Too nerdy...or not enough...?
That is the question I ask myself...lol

FYI
Probably not signing up ...this time..
Sorry
I have been holding off on doing too many things for too many reasons
Mostly I didn't want to disrupt my constant ppd..
Sayin to myself "When this completes" or "When I am at this level" or "can't let someone pass me...LoL"
Personal accomplishments mostly and fears of making it worse...
If I run into issues with the upgrades and adjustments I will be too busy to commit to a set ppd.
If it goes smooth...like the old sayin..."this will only take a minute"
I will consider signing up...
 
So Fold On Brothers and Sisters
I will be with you in spirit

Okie dokie, I'll sign up soon then, should be able to do ~3M PPD folding part time, either while I'm asleep/when I'm not gaming, or when I'm not gaming or not home, depending on how that section of February goes. lol
I'll try to guestimate my PPD as accurately as possible so that the teams aren't unbalanced... I could be crazy, keep the 3090 FTW3 Hybrid I haven't sold yet, and fold on one of the two GPUs full time & the other one part time - but that's a lot of money I don't really want sitting around in GPU form. :-D

SmookinJoe.. comment snipped...

Thanks Troy
I did get some things done today but during a photo shoot I didn't like the color of the zip tie and when I cut it off it revealed a hidden loop in it...

Didn't get out of control..
 
Got to use my little helper on the new heat shrink connectors I bought with my heat gun.
Thought it through...worked it out..
 
With the white zip tie on left side.

 
 
And now no zip tie but I added a diaper to the under side of the gpu's in case they become incontinent..silicone wise

I didn't accomplish half, what I expected, today but as you can see I can make things much worse...
I am trying to sign up...just might not happen...
This time.
Fold on ...

Troy,
Can you modify my estimated output, if possible?
I over-estimated by about 500k based on early results from my 3080.

hi

Here is a start  https://foldingathome.org
Pretty much use the CPU or GPU to complete work units and send them back
The work is scientific research trying to find cures for Alzheimer's, cancer, covid-19.....
EVGA is team 111065   
You install the software from the link above and run the program.
You use your forum name would be good for a start or choose another.
And you have to get a passkey and use it in the client set up where you put your name, team and passkey
Keep the passkey saved in an email and on a usb drive in a txt or doc format. Then you can copy/paste into the setup.
 
That is the basic gist of what folding is.
if you run a GPU 100% load 24/7 it will make your electric bill go up, JFYI
You can search on here there is a ton of info, have any questions just ask

I am in and hoping to get another computer next week with a second 3080 to help me.  I currently have a 2080 Super to fold with but also have a 1080Ti and 1080 that I might be able to get into some boxes to really boost up my total for the period.  Currently no working computers for the extra cards but will see what I can do before next week.  Looking forward to another fun event...

After being close to last place in the last contest, I'm looking forward to seeing where this new 3090 will place me. I also won't be a slob and donate a prize this time.
