Hi Kiore,

It's been a while since I posted, hope all is well with you. I just caught up on the thread and was sorry to see your trials and tribulations with the 2080Ti card. I have been running a 2070Ti 24/7 since I started folding in March 2020 (so almost three years straight) and it has performed flawlessly... out of curiosity what brand is your 2080 Ti?

That said, I am recently fortunate enough to upgrade to a RTX 4090 and have been bringing it online this week. I think I finally have the kinks worked out, but now that it is starting to produce 24/7 I have found an issue that I am almost embarrassed to discuss but was hoping you might have an answer to. The card is so fast that I am achieving between 15 and 30 seconds per fold depending on the WU, and now the checkpoints are occurring about once a minute with F@H checkpointing every 2% of progress. Such frequent checkpoints are impacting the productivity and I have tried to scale the checkpoint frequency back using the Advanced Control, but the Checkpointing Frequency setting in the Advanced tab doesn't seem to do anything as no matter how long I set it to, it is still checkpointing every 2% of progress.

Am I doing something wrong or is there is some other setting for the checkpoint frequency that I am missing? Your thoughts appreciated...
