      Errmm, a little embarrassed to ask, but I forgot, what is QRB and how do you enable/disable it. Sorry if the answer is staring me in the face.
      QRB stands for "quick return bonus", in core 17 GPU WU's, you get more points when you finish the WU in less time, you can check the base credit, and the estimated credit in your client. The faster you complete the WU, your estimated credit will be higher.

        Yes I know all about it. I just hadn't seen that abbreviation before. I knew I would regret posting such an obvious question..

        • Meet The Core i7-4790K, I'm trying to get excited!

          4.0 GHz turbos to 4.4, has supposedly improved thermal transfer to its own case.

          Let's see my old 2700K, also 4/8 runs at either 4.2 or 4.6 GHz, out of box 3.5/3.9, will absolutely go higher, even though I haven't popped the case lid yet; however it doesn't have the on-board memory this new one has, and probably loses out in chipset efficiences.

          I just don't feel the urge to upgrade to this and a comparable mobo to my ROG, for $700.00.

          If i was building a new one to keep long term, I'd go new, for sure.

          If anyone has this built, or will soon, let's try some Primes!

          • Might you be coerced into staying and folding?

            Hello fellow Human,

            You have found your way to the "folding" area of KG, could we dare hope for a little activity from you.

            'Twould be nice to see a new name on the tote board. With a machine like yours, I can guarantee you'll be in the top ten active folders in no time!

            • Welcome

              Yeah, now is a bad time to upgrade mobo and cpu. New stuff around the corner.

              Devils Canyon looks very promising, but it's still early days.

              Ah, fellow human, greetings. As Bruce (Agencyman) said, twould indeed be nice to see you fold, and it doesn't take too much effort to get in to the top ten here with a decent rig or two.

              Welcome

              P.S. There are some very knowledgeable people at Kitguru for all things including folding. Any questions will be answered quickly and correctly. Bruce is the main man for that, but several others, myself included can help. I started folding at the start of 2011. Man, time flies - but point rise!

              • Multiple problems!

                Hi guys. Sorry but I will only be folding a little or not at all for a while.

                My router died so I am temporarily having problems connecting to the internet on more than two PCs at a time. (It' s a long story, I know about connection sharing etc.)

                Also I have been getting BIOS wipes on my z77 which is very frustrating as useless drivers install automatically until I notice.

                That's just a summary. I think everything will be back in order when I have the time and new router. Busy though, so can't fix a time period. Very annoyed right now!!

                        • Mule I

                          Hi guys,

                          If you can remember the special 'slot edit' or 'expert' instructions for SMP with the [email protected] V7 client, could you put 'em down again.

                          I still use Tracker for my Alien. Works and works, and wor...

                          Whatever:
                          I just built a mule, which I have named "Mule I", out of a used mobo/CPU and the open chassis. It is an 8 core AMD FX 8320, 3.5-4 GHz, on a good MSI tuneable board, at present it's unfortunately about on par with a basic i5 I am guessing.

                          Just installing V7 with no instructions gave me about 14,500 PPD, (by comparison, the Alien 2700K at 4.2 GHz does about 25K).

                          Surely there is an edge to be had that will let it do a tiny bit better. It's running Win10Tech right now, and, (-I'm an insider!!! Yay!!!) WTF... ? An Ubuntu drive is also in the mix for the customer HDD work, I'll test it out for folding as well, but I need to find the time somehow.

                          Thanks, if you can throw a bit of wisdom my way. I really would have been up to speed on this V7 if I'd thought there was hope for a new batch of teammates.

                          BTW I just saw mention of a team that had 2300 members but only 30 active. Seems getting disinterested is par for the course.

                          Bruce

                          Switched 'Expert' from 'beta' to 'advanced' to see what happens on the next WU. Added a bit more airflow. Package temp 53C indicated by HWmon. Clocked it up to 4.085 GHz on at least six cores maybe all eight, don't know how to tell. CPU-Z wont let me check cores by #. Up to only 16.7K PPD on a 6381.

                            • Some useful easy affective [email protected] flags for forgetful Bruce

                              Hi Bruce. I don't know if these flags will work with your setup but I guess they should. They work with my Stanford windows client, both 7.3.6 (older) and 7.4.4 (current).
                              So a few extra points are gained by changing download times. Try this:

                              Client: next-unit-percentage
                              Value: 100

                              For GPU and CPU (SMP) I use the same Client value as above. (you can copy and paste I was careful to write it exactly or it won't work at all.

                              Next and (maybe?) importantly For all GPUs and my more powerful CPUs (8 thread core series) I add the below, and have been doing so for many months. Seems good.

                              Try this:

                              Client: client-type
                              Value: beta

                              I'm not 100% sure that adding beta rather than advanced works better, but seeing as I read all GPU wu are now what used to be "advanced," I figure "beta" is a step up. But it's odd. I still (rarely) get GPU x15 aaarrggg!! I hate them. Max stress on GPU - 99% constant - causes coil whine on my BIOS modified 780ti. No bonus either, but much more heat. Seems impossible to totally avoid those x15 monsterosities.

                              I find the flags (except 100% download one) don't make much difference with SMP. But for big bonus GPU wu they are important - but less so than 4 years ago. Remember "big adv." Ha. I don't think that exists anymore? Does it???

                              • Andy,

                                Well, I guess a poor ol' AMD FX8320 8 core just can't do much folding! 16-17K is about it with beta or advanced. It's a good gamer for the money, $160, and easily does a lot of work, fast.

                                I'll fool with it some more, but am anxious to see if Ubuntu can improve things as much as in the old days, 15% edge, or even more.

                                Speaking of the old days, "big-adv" was early on, occasionally spoofed by a couple of our guys to think it was more CPU that it was, 2600K at 4.5 GHz and better could do that, in a Linux VM. That ended very quickly.

                                Actually it was only for lots of cores in Linux. My departed SR2 at stock 2.6 GHz had 12 cores = 24 threads, but would barely even make a deadline, and points were way down. I always ran it at 3.8 GHz all threads, and made some good variable bonus.

                                Today a 12/24 SR2 attempting big-adv, (don't remember if that was big WUs flagged 'advantage' or 'advanced'...), would not be allowed to play on the playground with the big dogs, it takes two CPUs with 8 cores @ for 32 threads to compete. Linux only!

                                Bruce
