Lol, yep the ppd seems to bearing that out now, it's back down to 405k.
Going to back off the CPU usage now.

Btw, does it need 1 real thread, or will an HT do? [edit] Have set it to 10 threads for now, so 1 real thread spare.
[edit2] An hour or more later, it's showing 429k ppd

One HT is all you need for each GPU. I use HT/thread/logical core interchangeably.

EDIT: We are doing very well this year! We passed 2 billion points for the month as a team. :)

The racers have contributed over 1.7 billion points!

My main PC (with the RX 5700 as primary, and a GTX 1660ti as secondary), wouldn't wake from monitor sleep this morning.

I think I had just installed the newest 19.12.3 "Adrenaline 2020" drivers, the second ones released thus far. Still seem buggy. I had four video hangs on the first set with this rig.

I know you have lots of rigs. Why not move the non-primary card to a box that will have BOTH AMD or Nvidia to stop the problems ?

I don't think that the NVidia card, nor having both in one box, is actually the problem. I think that I would have issues with just the RX 5700 as the sole card in the box. AMD drives do that to me, they have over the years on my RX 570 cards, as well as 7950 cards before them. They (sometimes, rarely), simply don't "wake from monitor sleep". I've just come to accept that can happen. Both AMD AM4 and Intel Skylake rigs, so it's not really a system-platform problem. It's their GPUs/drivers.

And, I don't have that many dual-GPU-slot crunching boxes. I have three AM4, and two Skylake rigs, and really only enough room for 3+1 rigs, with one sticking out in my living room, unless I clean off the dining-room table, and put a pair of PCs on there, and run them off of the dedicated A/C circuit. (Which I did last summer, with the Skylake/Kaby Lake rigs mining on my Polaris cards.)

Edit: For clarification, I said "Skylake rigs", because when I first got my Z170 Pro4S mobos, that's what I had in them, Skylake dual-cores, and I OCed them. But technically, I have Kaby Lake non-OC'able G4560 CPUs in them now, so I guess I should have called them "Kaby Lake rigs". I just have a fondness for the original Skylake configuration, I guess, and remember them that way.

Edit: And actually, if you think of "platform" rather than "CPU", I'm not wrong, they were the original Skylake platform (Z170). A Kaby Lake platform would have been Z270.

Fellas the daytime temps for this week are mid 60s F, I will need to 'finish tasks' in the mornings then resume folding after nightfall. :(
What ?? The highs here are like 45f for the next week......

~65F Sounds pretty warm Tony! Err, let's see, what's that in C .........18, yea that would be crazy warm here for this time of the year! ;) How's that compared to your average winter temps? It's around 5-10C here recently.

Virtual Larry
Lol, not that many at all! ;) :D

Good to know, I'll see if theirs any real change ppd anyway, currently at 441k ppd, although it's decided to go up before I've done anything......
Oh, thanks for the stats btw :)

Mark3, December usually fluctuates a lot...but I am running nearly 4000w, so the GPU's have to go whilst the Sun is up. :( I am trying to keep the energy bill at $500-ish US....which is a house payment for me.

Yea that's a lot of power!:eek:;) My old rig's drawing ~390w running F@H on the GPU & CPU. So slightly under a tenth of your power usage! Although when only crunching on the CPU it still uses just a little over 200w, which costs me ~£23/mth. So I guesstimate your fleet would cost me about £460($595)!o_O A little over a month's rent on my 1 bed maisonette! lol

Anyway, hope ya'll have a good Christmas/holidays! :)
