    My 9800GTX is overclocked to about GTX+ speeds. I get 4200 for 511s, 6600 for 353s, 5600 for 1888s, and various other numbers in between.


    Here's
    a thread (had to find the sucker) that has a nice database in it. The actual link to the database is here. It seems kind of large though, lots of detail but not too easy to navigate. At any rate its got tons of numbers.

    IMHO, I'd wait for another deal on a GTS250 like Galaxy had. Even so, there were some deals that I saw recently for $100 after MIR. Doesn't it also make sense that when the GTX300's come out that the prices across the board will be driven downward? Even the new ATI's are less than a month away, which should have an affect across the board. Who knows.

    I sold 3-250's and 10-260's and 3-9600GSO and 3-8800gt's.

    I am downsizing and made a good move for the existing motherboard cpu setup that I will continue running.

    I had 48 crunchers with 18 fold cards, I have been out of work for 10 months and the 9800GTs are the best move for me.

    Also the Galaxy 250s run hotter than the Evga cards that I sold.

    ok

    Mike, did you see this for $90 after promo code EMCLWNL48 with free shipping? This appears to be the newer, lower power version, (no pci-e power connector) so overclocking may be limited.

    Got some strange error but I closed the client before getting the information from the log file :banghead:

    It said something like:
    Unable to read work/XXXX.dat (for 3-4 different WUs) then-
    UNSTABLE MACHINE PAUSE FOR 24HRS

    Closing and restarting the client displayed "Attempt 1 to get work failed, waiting to retry" 10 sec later it was folding again. My 260 is only +20core and +100 shader seemingly stable (36hr folding, 30mins furmark, 3 runs 3dVantage, no issue). Anything to be worried about or just the client tripping up momentarily?

    Check your overclocks. The new work units will cause errors until we find the "sweet spots" for our overclocks.

    Alright, I will lower to 602/1350/999 (590/1296/999 stock) and see if it happens again. It really seemed like it was agreeing before :ohwell:

    I leave HWMonitor open to see my max temps whenever I am away or asleep. The card has not gone over 72C in the past 24-36hours, and today was the coolest day of the week- only 86F!

    Im watching it complete a 353 real quick before I have to step out, seems fine, chugging along 7200PPD @ 62C.

    Run my 9800gtx non + at 738/1782/1152 by rivatuners sensor. Never goes above 60c. Folds 24/7 non-stop.
    Edit: it has never crashed either, it just keeps folding!

    I really think it was just an error. Wasn't there some issues earlier today with some people not being able to retrieve WUs, maybe this stemmed from that?

    Those 9800GTX are great folders. Next to my 260's they are my best card. They always run cool and rarely ever crash.

    Hey guys, I got a problem. Whenever I close folding to play a game, quit the game, and then launch folding, my card goes into low power 3D mode. Which obviously gives me terrible PPD. I'm using the console client and I've never had this problem before..

    Thanks

    Do not keep the viewer open for more than a minute. It kills your production because the card is trying to display the graphics and not render the protein. It may even crash your system when using the veiwer.

    Your temps won't improve too much, that's about normal. Don't worry, 80 degrees Celsius is pretty much cakewalk for today's GPUs. Folding should never take your card over 80 though. It never has gotten over 78 for me, unless it was my doing. You should expect to see anywhere from 64-74 on average, with some of the hottest work units bumping you up a bit. Your location might make these values change due to tropical heat.
