@nintendoeats: did that this morning and that did the trick. Won't be needing the latest drivers anymore now that the Steep Beta is finished.
@nintendoeats: My guess is the top 150 will be the real battle; we're the 125th most active team this week, so we've got some more to vault over before we hit a wall.
Doesn't seem like my schedule is going to allow me to do better than #4, given our averages, but I'll take it. :D
Hmm, 125. a few months should get us there.
I've had a great deal of modelling and photoshop work to do so my numbers are down. Hopefully to be balanced out when I leave the province for christmas and leave my machine running for two weeks. Anyway, I've been doing this for 2 years so I do have a bit of a lead :p
One million points on 23 WUs; with 10 of those not counting for bonus points, that makes a pretty hefty average. I'm doing the family tour this weekend so that means tons o' folding, but will probably slack off a bit during the week. Still, I'm gunning for the top five. :D
We jumped 6 spots today and 16 on the week; not bad for only 10ish active members.
Need more folks with idle GTX 10X0s to jump on!
Mine strangely stopped folding for a few days then I realized a Windows 10 insider update stealthily upgraded my NVIDIA drivers past 373.06 and broke FAH. I've sinced rolled them back (again) so I'm back to gaining steadily on @nintendoeats!
The latest NVIDIA drivers released this morning (376.09) do not fix this issue yet.
@snail: The more the merrier! Just keep in mind that with a laptop running the CPU at 100% it will need good cooling, so the fans will spool up a lot. If you normally have it on a desk and plugged in when you're not using it then it shouldn't be an issue, but I wouldn't just set it on carpet or your couch while it folds.
@hobbz: I am mad jealous. I alos think it's funny that your 770 pulls in more points than my old 7970.
Unfortunately for the last few I've been rendering things overnight and working on the things that need to render during the day. Or at least, I was supposed to be rendering last night but my computer had other ideas -_-. Point is, my numbers are down.
Didn't know Giant Bomb had a folding team. Added my computer. I don't know if my old machine can really help (i5 760 + HD 5870) but I'll run it for now.
Every bit helps! Also, I finally reached that coveted #3 Rank, passing KBN with 11mil! My 980+4790k has been a champ through all this, going strong.
I've noticed our rank increase has started to slow down which means we're getting into the thick of it. We gotta crack that 200! This is where the real grind begins.
Has anyone else been having trouble with the Web Controller? It perpetually makes these weird boxes of circles, right now, for me.
I had to disable my CPU from folding the other day. It's been causing my computer to emergency power down a lot because of temperatures getting too high (it's just got the stock cooler on), but it was easy enough to disable completely with the advanced control window. Still powering away with the GPU though.
And we've just passed the Penny Arcade team on the list. Take that!
