    would my 4650 help much folding? with my 2 cpu cores already at 100% ?

    Probably not; it might actually make your points worse, because the GPU client uses a bit of CPU.

    Well, I have my 1090T and GTX460 ready to go, downloaded V2 got it set up and............Zilch, nothing, nada. So, in order to run the new V7 you have to have a "passkey?"

    why in the hell do they make it such a PITA?

    Well, I guess I need a Passkey to get the this running.

    Okay guys, heat is an issue, so is there a way to turn down the percentage of usage?
    edit: On my GPU?

    The clients say that there is, but I've never heard of anyone getting it to work. And you even have a HAF. What kind of temps are you talking about?

    By accident I discovered that using Fahclient v7 and changing following setting in Configure->Advanced allows you to limit GPU usage (and not the CPU :laugh:) but you have to restart the program:
    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately I couldn't get Fahtracker v2 to work at all on two different PCs so I have no idea if there is an analogous setting. :ohwell:

    PS. To control the CPU usage I just set core affinity in the task manager. It's messy but it works :)

    My HD 5830 is running at 100% right now (has been for hours) with only 50% fan and it's at 48C. :D

    Drats. The 494 point WU's are back. That's going to hurt the output from the pre-Fermi Nvidia cards.

    Not terrible, just above 60c. Just wanted it to drop down a bit is all. Got it worked out by doing what Streetfighter suggested.


    Yep, worked great in V7 :) Thanks for the advice Street!!!!!!

    Currently all my GPUs have these 494 point units. No matter, I'm sure our enemies are getting them too.

    Same for me, but not my 256MB 8800GT.:laugh: That's just weird.

    Also, why would anyone on NCIX.com Forum Folding Team Fold using the Beavers_Gone_Bananas username?:rolleyes::shadedshu

    None here. Which gpu?

    If it's still folding check temps on the card. Some WU's don't agree with some gpu's and some WU's just fail with all gpu's.

    GTS 250 - It's been kicking them out steady...thought maybe because of the sudden point change?

    Folder #2 is up, but I have the weirdest problem ever with it. If I put a 9600GSO (one out of my four, doesn't matter which one) in the first PCIe slot, windows will fail to load (black screen after Vista loading bars and that's it). If I put a different video card there, then it works like a charm. So folder #1 now runs two 9600GSOs and one CPU (not SMP) client, while folder #2 is running one 9600GSO, two 8400GS (one on PCI) and one CPU (again, not SMP) client. I have a 9600GSO lying around now since I have nowhere to put it :(

    Weird MSI motherboard issue, I've never ran into anything like that.

    I am good for a measly 11.5k PPD on the folding GPUs and whatever those two CPU clients will come up with.

    GPU WUs failing keeps on being a problem, there's one particular project that fails every single time it comes up on the GPU clients. Annoying as heck.

    11.5k ppd is great. That would put in the top 30 ppd before the Chimp Challege.:):toast:

    Do you have -avdmethods on? If not, turn it on. And yes firing up a big rig can cause a gpu wu to fail. Keep on folding.:toast:

    Going to throw in my 2 285s during the nights as well now. Don't usually fold them, but we're so close to 2nd now!
