    Still make sure you set those environmental variables, it will make your GPU folding much better.

    You need to add it there.
    The overclock could be unstable... unstable overclock can lead to slow system, even without crashing...
    Anyway... I think your 5870 is more than enough to already stress your cpu to run smp together... I can tell that because your GPU using isn't at 100% all the time. So running both might be sticking both to a lower PPD.

    Yeah, HT seems to do a hell of a good job when folding, also my atom is overclocked from 1.6 to 2.0ghz.
    I guess a PPD of 3000K-4000K would be the right thing to your CPU when overclocked. At least 2300k stock IMHO.

    Yeah... I also think it's a issue with process taking resources from folding... the folding process priority is set to the minimum... anything running will take priority over it.

    well... it really doesn't have to do with the bus (yet I don't know what it does neither... :laugh:)
    I tried 256 from start and it was as good as it could get....
    Buck tells in the first post of this thread that you can try to mess with it to check which will do best... seems that around 200 is the best for most, but this you'll have to find yourself.

    Much much better. It might have crashed because the CPU or vga was going into full.
    You can test a lower OC or higher voltage, just don't forget to keep temps in check.

    Looks good. Don't you have an 8800GS in that system as well? It's easy to get 4000 PPD from them.
    AMD CPU's are not in the same league as Intel. Combine that with Folding on a Radeon card will drag its PPD down
    Are you running SMP on that?
    The EV's are only NEEDED for the HD2xxx-HD4xxx UNLESS you are Folding on a HD5xxx or later with GPU2. (FAHcore 11) That being said, the EV's won't hurt anything and will be handy if the GPU can't pick up a FAHcore_16.

    Folding is best on Intel and Nvidia

    And catnipkiller, I'm not going to yell at you no matter where you're from. Just glad you're trying to help.

    Well this has me concerned then. Here is where my main rig is at w/ i7 970 @ 4.0GHz:
    [​IMG]

    And my second i7 970 @ 3.8GHz:
    [​IMG]

    Maybe after this first -bigadv for both rigs are completed, the next numbers will increase...
    Oh well, somehing is better than nothing.

    Okay. Folding rig #1 is up. A pair of 9600GSOs and one 8400GS (Won't do much, but why not run it along, eh?). Need to get the second pair of 9600GSOs up and running in the second folding box.

    Yes. I had it overclocked to 3.8 GHz, but took it down to 3.16 GHz (stock) because I was getting BSODs. Here are some screenshots, maybe I have something set wrong?

    Do all these screenshots look okay? Is that the amount of time my CPU should be taking?

    @Hammer-your #'s are good Sir, it doesn't include (not showing on FAHtracker and V7 Clients) the completion bonus.

    Someone just posted on the shoutbox and I hope it's true:

    isowizard: just put my 3 2600k big adv and 3 980x big adv on chimp power up today with4 580's


    Looks like he was a member of ASUS ROG under Rayden. He say's he's bringing a friend that produces 150K as well. This should be interesting.

    isowizard: yes sir and i brought a friend along

    isowizard: so add another 150k ppd onto mine

    isowizard: plus it may make it interesting between hwc and tpu

    BIG hill to climb yet so let's wait till we get 2nd first. most big adv wont hit till the 9th. i just got a passkey today and switched all clients on this evening, but it will be fun ride near the end i hope :D
    still got time to recruit more folders though so we still need to get as many clients online as possible.
