My stupid 280 is running at 79°

Is that celcius though? My 7950 is running at 63C with fan at 40% and my ambient temperature at the moment is 87F.

i learned that overclocking cpu doesnt help alot. How about  overclocking gpu ?

From an AMD standpoint overclocking the GPU will most likely lead to "hung WU" which means that most likely your video cards drivers crashed.  I'm actually underclocking my R9 290X TRIX cards just to keep them stable and that is an ongoing experiment.

Overclocking will most likely result in a reduced PPD due to instability if you are using AMD GPU's.  I can not say if it is the same for Nvidia.
i am running the FahControl more than 6 hours with 1x 4770k (turbo enabled)and 3x 290 (1040-1300).And ppd saying around 460k-476k.Do you think lowering them to stock speed will give more ppd?

I also use the FAH Control client.  I have not been able to keep any of the R9 290X TRIX cards running at 1040-1300.  I'm currently at 947-1000 on most rigs.  One computer is at 937-1000.  Another is at 917-1000 and still shaky.  Every time I see a hung WU I reduce the core clock speed by 10 and reboot.  If I get to 900 on core clock speed and I'm still getting hung WU's then I reduce the memory speed by 50 and start again.  It is an iterative process but I did drop from 1250 memory speed straight down to 1000 initially after I ran into issues even after reducing the core clock speeds and then I started the process over again.  If you are wondering where I got the 947 from it is an arbitrary number that another user posted so I restarted there.

Watch your logs for each GPU.  If the logs shows a WU is 25% complete but the client shows a higher number such as 30% then that WU is hung and will not finish without intervention.  If you let it go long enough it will eventually show as 99.99% complete in the client and just sit there.  That is the indication that something happened and then you need to start bringing down your clock speeds to find what is stable.  You do not need to wait for the client to show 99.99% before you act.  In fact, if you do you will lose hours because work isn't really being done.

If you have not run into this issue and have been running for some time (days) your cards may be able to handle it.  That has not been the case with any of my 15 R9 290X TRIX cards though so I would say the odds are against you.

Some tips:  If I do in fact see a mismatch I reboot the machine without pausing folding in order to reset the WU.  It may take a little while in order for the client to show movement again but the log should show it fairly quickly.  Some have reported that you can pause folding and then start again but I always reboot because I have found the driver crashes often times make the system unstable.  I prefer to start over.

To reiterate:  Watch the logs.  The client is not a reliable source of information.  Frequently check the percent done in the log and compare it to what the client says.  Don't trust the client display.  That goes for PPD estimates as well.  They are also very unreliable in the client.

If you do run into hung WU's it would probably save you a lot of time and effort to start where I'm at and if you run stable start adding 10 to your clock speeds if you want.  I can say the overall PPD have not changed much even after all the downclocking.  The biggest killer of PPD is hung WU.  You want to avoid those at all costs.
thanks for the information , can you show me an example of hung wu?



Based on what you are showing every one of your GPU work units are hung.  The GUI is out of sync with your log.  The log wins unfortunately.

After some time the difference between the log and the client are almost same (%1).Are they still hung?



Are you saying the log suddenly ran up to the percentage that was shown in the GUI?  I have never seen that before.  I'm guessing the logs you had a screen shot of weren't taken at the exact time of the screenshot for the GUI was taken because there is nearly an hour difference in the log time stamps.

If there is a 2% difference (log shows a lower value than the GUI) I usually take action if I see it.  1% difference is normal because the log doesn't show fractions.  Needless to say you can wait a bit if you notice a difference and see if the gap widens.  I've literally lost days of cumulative PPD on some computers due to hung work units so I don't tend to wait long when I see one.

Yes hot garage
But the card right under it is at 65

Guess it's sucking in all hot air

This looks accurate to me. Here's what you see:

GPU3 - 64%->65%
GPU2 - 65%->66%
GPU1 - 64%->65%
CPU - 40%

There's nothing out of the ordinary there. It's just that your GPUs are about equal on their work orders.

I agree this looks fine.  Just make sure you have enough CPU cores for what you are doing or else you will not get the PPD you expect because your GPU's will be bottlenecked.  The CPU needs to be able to feed the GPU's.

Also when looking at the log, use the filter and look at each slot individually.  Compare the percentages one by one.  It is a lot easier that way for me at least.

alright thanks for your help!.I only surf with the pc other than folding and using igpu for watching videos and here is my cpu usage when folding.Do you think the cpu bottleneck the gpus?

It looks like you are running three GPU's.  Based on what I have read in this thread and others, that means you need four CPU cores just to handle the GPU's.  So if you have a quad core processor, you should not use your CPU to fold with.  I followed their advice.  One CPU core per GPU and then one spare CPU core.

However you are 40% through your CPU work.  Let it finish.  Specifically you can right click the CPU slot on the status tab and select "Finish".  Then the CPU will not take on more work when it is done.

You can remove your CPU via the Configure (upper left of client) -->  Slots (tab).  You can also use the tab to reduce the number of cores used for folding.

hmm ok then, i have an i-4770k  its a quadcore so i should not use my cpu.Then  should i get a 2011 socket one for folding with it?

You don't need to new CPU / motherboard.  Your CPU is fine.  By far most of the processing is done by the GPU's anyway.  You just need to make sure you can feed the GPU's.

is there any setting to set 4 cpu core to gpus or should i just remove the cpu from folding?

Phase 1
Today I start fundraising to get the promotion of CureCoin off the ground. If you would like to see the marketing for this coin go viral; I would suggest donating as 100% of the proceeds go towards marketing campaigns. First step is to try and get us on the sponsor list for the BTC conference 2014 in Chicago. Here is a list of the donor hierarchy.
http://www.scribd.com/doc/225648825/NABC-Chicago-Sponsorship-Info-19-5-2014
I will not be taking any profit or cut from this as 100% of donations will directly go towards this.
WHY? Great question. We have in our midst a coin actually worth something; a real modern miracle. As the Dev. Team grows stronger the coin will grow by itself. However nothing like adding fuel to the fire. Since at this conference there will not only be Forbes, Wall Street Journal, a lot of press and large investors, but a vast majority of other crypto enthusiasts. Of course following their interest is further support and volume into the coin.  Assuming we have at least a booth set up minimum. We already have top designers and digital artists at our disposal for press and promotions. The real goal is to reach the premier donor list, which comes with the added benefit of having CureCoin logo splashed across the conference on every piece of written literature and banners from napkins to ID badges.

Goals: To get a booth set up we will need $2000 or roughly 4 BTC just for the booth. To hit premier sponsor we will need $25,000 or roughly 50 BTC.
Why don’t I just buy coin to maximize my investment? Another great question, if you’re already holding CureCoin, the amount you would buy will not change current prices. However if we are able to make the premier spot, very big players will become more interested as we were able to raise this amount through the coins support alone. More volume in the coin, more transactions per day, more folds per day and work units are completed.  THE CLOSER WE GET TO THE CURE.
BTC address, 1NyS35o4FSt5YNNgbfbLjCiMZZ3HssxCsB

Phase 2
   Any leftover donations will be used towards future marketing which is already lined up and with aid, in development. We already have approval from three different “Race for the Cure” events as sponsors and hosts. These 5k – half marathon races are great for raising awareness and general knowledge of CureCoin.  This plans to be a multi-national campaign as we now have connections in New Zealand and Australia. If you know of any other great ideas or input feel free to contact me as I am always excited to make new connections.
Just to prove that I have permission to do this and I am not here to scam anyone. I will remain completely open with my identity.
Jakewiser22@gmail.com
https://www.facebook.com/jake.wiser.5
1-801-598-8949
Feel free to contact me anytime I’ll get back to you ASAP.
Also if you will be donating 0.5 BTC or more please contact me first as you will be receiving a custom CureCoin t-shirt with any name you choose to be printed on it as well as special thanks and promotional swag. Open discussion for a CureCoin transaction depending on your support .

I've watched the previous crypto conferences pass by and a lot of coins getting donations and/or using premine to have a representative there. Most of those coins were just completely skipped and barely got any attention at all, let alone that their popularity increased. What makes you think it will be different for curecoin/this conference? Do you think an expensive conference booth will be more useful than using a donation fund to get listed on a site like Coinpayments or another payment platform to get more uses for the coin?
(not trying to bash your idea, I am just being critical before sending my money to a stranger)

P.S. maybe you can also add a CureCoin donation address Smiley

CureCoin address =p

BMyE2yTNVFtbUu6hwVVCn9BsGkeBF6F5UB

I would recommend going for the 4 BTC slot.

I'm thinking of trying to hit every BTC conference around the world Since I get free tickets ha. I have some really good connections with SKY CITY in NZ they will be very excited to hear from me when I invite some of the "Head Honchos" if you will. . to the convention.

Also going to have a couple tvs with promo videos going and still trying to get a a table during the dinner and have the dev team get announced during it? Just a thought this is an open discussion about what can happen since it is OUR decision. Once WE create it I promise I can get everything going.

Anyways, striving for the CURE FifthGhostbuster

0.1 BTC Sent from 1HkSGRfo738oEqkt6pjnqzSgFfqpLnc68C ..   Good Luck!!
Thanks were now at .11 btc still need more for atleast a booth =p

Go CureCoin!

i waited for the log to show all 6 stats.Check now please:

This looks accurate to me. Here's what you see:

GPU3 - 64%->65%
GPU2 - 65%->66%
GPU1 - 64%->65%
CPU - 40%

There's nothing out of the ordinary there. It's just that your GPUs are about equal on their work orders.

I agree this looks fine.  Just make sure you have enough CPU cores for what you are doing or else you will not get the PPD you expect because your GPU's will be bottlenecked.  The CPU needs to be able to feed the GPU's.

Also when looking at the log, use the filter and look at each slot individually.  Compare the percentages one by one.  It is a lot easier that way for me at least.

alright thanks for your help!.I only surf with the pc other than folding and using igpu for watching videos and here is my cpu usage when folding.Do you think the cpu bottleneck the gpus?

It looks like you are running three GPU's.  Based on what I have read in this thread and others, that means you need four CPU cores just to handle the GPU's.  So if you have a quad core processor, you should not use your CPU to fold with.  I followed their advice.  One CPU core per GPU and then one spare CPU core.

However you are 40% through your CPU work.  Let it finish.  Specifically you can right click the CPU slot on the status tab and select "Finish".  Then the CPU will not take on more work when it is done.

You can remove your CPU via the Configure (upper left of client) -->  Slots (tab).

hmm ok then, i have an i-4770k  its a quadcore so i should not use my cpu.Then which cpu should i get ?a 2011 socket one?


You don't need to new CPU / motherboard.  Your CPU is fine.  By far most of the processing is done by the GPU's anyway.  You just need to make sure you can feed the GPU's.


is there any setting to set 4 cpu core to gpus or should i just remove the cpu from folding?

Just remove the CPU from folding once it finishes it's work.  It isn't contributing much anyway.

I wish the price of Curecoin would just go up. It is down everytime I look at it! Gah

You need one core/thread per AMD gpu used...

i run this cpu (dual core 4 threads)

http://ark.intel.com/De/products/65692/Intel-Core-i3-3225-Processor-3M-Cache-3_30-GHz

with 6x amd280

and fold with ~600000 ppd

thats a bit worse than the 110000 each card others posted
but still not that bad

so u can run with small performance loss below one thread per GPU

edit: cpu folding deactivated i removed the cpu folding slot

Cpu is fine, leave it be, it has 8 threads and the program will assign them accordingly.
You don't need to do anything in this case.
