I'm not completely new to the team but I'm new to being able to fold most of the time. Hoping to fold enough to get this current rig back up and running as a full time folding rig after I part it out for parts for my Sandy Bridge rig.

i7 2600k @4.0Ghz, EVGA Z77 FTW, Evga GTX 660ti, Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler, Sea Sonic X-850

Awesome man, looks like you will be eligible for the evga bucks also if you keep your pace.
 
Also feel free to add your name to the list on that form, so we can see how many new folders join ( if you wouldn't mind that is )

Been an EVGA member a long time but only recently started folding for the team.
I used to fold when I got my 280SSC but after the 3rd RMA I was a bit discouraged and quit. Not sure why I went through so many 280's except maybe that they were brand new at the time and didn't have all of the bugs worked out.

CPU: i7 4790K @4.6   Mobo: Asus Maximus VII Formula   GPU: EVGA 1080 Sc   OS: Win 10 Pro 64 RAM: 16 gig G-Skill 2400   Sound: Sound Blaster Z PSU: Antec 850 Case: CM HAF X

Yea I heard quit a few people went through 280's went they started folding with them for some reason, not really sure why (maybe a bad batch/ batches? )

I went to fill it out but i guess im not eligible as im not a new folder. What do you think about having a page like that for every member so you can see how long they have been with EVGA and folding all together?

We can probably do something like to , I just wanted to make all the new guys joining feel welcome and let them know we don't bite ( At least not to hard )
 
Once we get a better site then google, I think Drougnor was wanting to do something anyways.

Re:New EVGA Folder Check-IN 2011/01/08 17:16:16 (permalink)
Just started to fold yesterday actually... seeing how simple it is!
I have two questions though
1. It says I need 10 regular WU's before I can earn the bonus, is this applied per computer or per username? So could I get the 10 WU's with another computer, while doing the bigadv on another? And these 10 WU's could be CPU or GPU? or what?
2. My GPU0 finished Project 5736 according to the stats page using FAH GPU tracker, but the current project its working on is ALSO 5736. Is there something wrong?

Welcome to the team!
You need to have a passkey for the cpu client if you don't already. 10 Smp work units must be completed under that passkey/username combo before you will start to get any bonus points. The 10 workunits must be cpu , GPU don't count for this.
 
You may get numerous of the same projects in a row , it all depends on what stanford is sending out at the moment. Oh and it will be easier if you do 10 regular smp workunits with the passkey before starting bigadv workunits ( much quicker this way ). Also you must stay above 80% completion rate to keep getting bonus points.
 
Hope that helps some

Okay, thanks!
Too bad I started the bigadv 12 hours ago... its at 16%. I guess no bonus for this one

Well on the bright side you'll only have 9 more workunits to go when its done.  I commend you for not deleting it and starting on a smp WU. Deleting a WU is never good unless its absolutely necessary ( Like a bad one or something )

Yeah, I figured that it would not be good to do so...anyawys I'm using the FAH GPU Tracker and the PPD box for my SMP is YELLOW, but the one for the GPU is GREEN, whats up with that?
EDIT: nvm google is your friend, yellow means estimated from best TPF.

Hi All,
New to the EVGA Folding team. I moved from another team to EVGA.
My old folding name was Chance. I wanted to use it here but it seems that name is taken. I was at one point ranked in the top 300 overall with about 30 mil, so I am starting over with this ID. Glad to be part of this team and hopefully I can add some value to this group.

Just started folding on a pair of 570's, I don't plan to do it 24/7, but I was wondering if this is hard on my video cards ?

If you let the temps stay well over 80C, then it can be hard on them. As long as you take care of them, they will take care of you.

Thanks for the peace of mind, I'm sitting at 66C and 62C.

Re:New EVGA Folder Check-IN 2011/01/10 00:19:44 (permalink)
Hey guys, new member checking in here. Started today I think I finally got it figured out enough to work lol :-p im using FAH GPU tracker V2 couldn't figure out how to get the client working correctly till I found this great tool. looks like between my two GTX 460's im pushing about 20,000 PPD, not sure if thats good but I do believe that meets the goal of 250k per month. I was wondering however if there were any other requirements for getting EVGA bucks? Not just here for the cash incentive I actually ran across the topic of folding exploring EVGA's website and forums and after a bit of research just pretty much loved the concept of putting my hardware to work.
 
Although I don't personally know anyone with the diseases listed, F@H hits close to home for me as my girlfriend has chronic Lyme disease, so I know how much an impact being sick can have on friends and loved ones. Just wanted to say this website is great and thanks for the helpful guides, hope I can help out!
 
EDIT: also wanted to add i noticed in EVGA precision my GPU1 temp is bouncing around 74c, anyone know if thats an ok temp to be at? I know being on an x58M series board my video cards are pretty close to each other keeping the top card a bit warmer but if 74ish is ok then I won't worry too much about it, thanks!

If you wish to be elgigible for the EVGA Bucks, you will need to enter your folding name into your profile, and it will also need to be identical to your forum name. So, if chance is taken you will have to make a new folding name im afraid. Unless youre not interested in the 10 EVGA bucks / month.

What is your fan speed setting?  Is it set to AUTO in Precision?  If it is, try turning AUTO off, then increase the fan speed for each GPU.  Find a balance between lower temp and how much fan noise you're willing to listen to.
 
I don't think 74°C is too bad and it's not going to hurt your 460's.  The Maximum GPU Temperature listed for that card is 104°C.

Thanks JD22964, sitting a little cooler now and only slightly louder by bumping the fan up a bit. Really just gives me an excuse to get a couple more fans in this case.... hmm
