My son just went to Disneyland for a week. Lucky guy!

He left his PS3 folding. Can i leave it running 24/7 for the duration or will it overheat?

I can check from time to time to see if it is getting hot.

You should be fine leaving it running 27/7, just like a computer should be fine.

Mine has been running 24/7 for several months without a problem so it should be fine for a week. :)

Everyone with fast GPUs: run this when you're not gaming. :)

edit: one work unit finished in about half an hour, including starting/stopping it once briefly. How much does that equal to points per day? If the system tray's telling me there are 5000 points per work unit, then that's... almost 240000 per day? :blink:

Did it work out at 240k ppd?

I heard that GPU F@H client can throw a few thousand ppd, but not 240! :laugh:

Just joined the team :)

Running on PS3 and GPU client, although seems not that speedy. Running the 8600 M GS and only getting an average of 60 iter/sec am i missing some tweeking I should do in order to boost that slightly. It's on my laptop so can understanding it being a little down on performace.

I'm an idiot. :blush:

My PPD according to FahMon is nearly 5000 for the GPU client and roughly 200 for the CPU client. So in total, about 5200.

Now that I swapped out coolers on my graphics card I can afford to run this client full time. Before that, I had a central vac under my desk. :laugh:

It could be because the server's down at the moment and your client has no cores to work with. The test protein always runs at 60 iterations/second.

One other thing i've noticed is that if I take the focus away from the client and just go use MSN the iterations drop down to 1 or 0 :s I can't see how msn draws that much processing power from the gpu ?

Play around with the CPU Usage percent slider in the 'Advanced' tab. Also set its priority to 'Slightly higher.' It barely has an effect on normal computer usage.

Also if you can't seem to get any cores: open up the log file and search for any 'UNSTABLE_MACHINE' errors. If there are, delete the Folding@home-gpu folder in %APPDATA%, uninstall the client, get the latest Forceware drivers (I'm currently using 177.41), then reinstall the client and try again.

All up and running fine now thank you :)

Updated drivers and seems okay, not quite the performance of yours but as it's only a mobile card I wouldn't expect it to be close.

Averaging between 350-500 iterations per sec now :) I'm happy with that and the Playstation running. Better still I live in rented accomodation where I don't pay the electricity bills lol
