Well, looks like I'm going to be going down to 1Mil PPD. F@H just isn't agreeing with my RX 5700 (primary) / GTX 1660 ti (secondary) GPU rig.

After a few misc reboots, now F@H ONLY seems to see the RX 5700, which, of course, doesn't work.

I've tried GPU index 0 and 1, OpenCL Index, NADA.

No F@H on this box until further notice, I guess. :(

I'm taking some CPUs away from Folding. I remember contests where we needed every ounce of power for Folding regardless of efficiency, but this year does not look to be one of those.

Sorry PP's (HEHEHE) Had we known we were going to make this a 3 way (whoa) I'd have kept the foot on the floor and all cars in the race! Not paying attention to the stats didn't make me realize [H] was jetting off to the win!! None the less it was fun!!

After [H] won the first leg, I may be paring back my output to 1-1.2Mil PPD (two GTX 1660ti cards, rather than three). Only due to the fact that I needed to baby-sit my main rig, to get it to Fold properly, and I don't really feel like doing that all month. But ... if F@H supports the RX 5700, I mean, really and truely, properly, then I will throw this machine back onto Folding, with both my RX 5700 and my GTX 1660ti. Until then, I still need some mining income for the rest of the month. (Sorry, but it's true.)

Edit: Aloha, wonderboy, and thanks!

Ok, I'm going to throw in my third GTX 1660ti and baby-sit it, sorry PP's, I didn't think that would cause us to lose our lead by dropping that.

Edit: In more "light" news, I ordered... wait for it... 640+ K-cups (if you add up the individual qty.) from walmart.com. A little variety to get me through the winter (and like 5-6 months beyond, I guess).

Quite a few of us have cut back a bit after the race with [H]. Like @StefanR5R said, "from a sauna back to intelligent heat". The PrimeGrid race is coming up soon too so the team scores will change significantly over the coming days.
