to any one running nvidia use the 266.58 driver it's the most stable for 400 series cards and down
Is it possible to run F@H on a 6850? if so is it possible to run it on two?
I edited the Chimp Challenge rules page to include FAHClient V7 instructions. Two cards might be a little tougher, but it is definitely do-able.
It's no problem with the V7 client it's as easy as clicking add slot and selecting GPU do that twice for two cards and then follow how to add the following switches to get the newer Core_16 WU's
I'm getting "Unstable Machine" when trying to fold on my Zotac ION / Atom D330 mini-itx... I already updated to the lastest driver from nvidia..... what might it be ?
I don't think so.... well... it's pretty cold here today and my atom is with the supplied zotac fan over it....
CPU fold goes just fine, but gpu doesn't even starts.....
the integrated GPU?
yes, the 9400m integrated
It would not surprise me if it did not work.
I've never seen integrated actually fold. The Atom/9400 combo is not worth folding on to be honest. Thanks for trying!
i just found out that i can fold with my PS3 ! lol
wonder if it will count toward chimpowerup ? changed name and team number ...
Yes, it would count, but it's only 1000PPd and may not be worth the electricity used. It's up to you.
LoL.... my atom cpu is folding at 642 PPD.....
I wasn't able to get the gpu to work....
Well... it always stays on anyway.... I'll leave it folding for chimp... :shadedshu
bah i leave it on electricity is cheap in quebec
ps3 + 6950 unlocked shaders@1000mhz + q9400@3600mhz + 9800gtx@1950mhz shaders should help a bit!
Ok, im at work now, will be home shortly after 6 am...system is freezing after just a few minutes after starting fahtracker. SMP, GPU0, GPU1, GPU2 making heat. Temps seem good, OC seems stable, so what gives? The last time it froze, I heard something access the raptor, then freeze. Two things im gonna try...more volts and disconnect raptor.
This is a clean install of win7, sp1, 257.x for gpus. As it sits, superpi ~16 sec(1M).
Try it without Folding on the 8500GT
@1freedude try V7.1.24 of the F@H client instead of fahtracker
A fresh install of w7 and sp1 will still need some updates.
How bout the vid driver? Good enough for the 260s? What about sli...
I would go with the Nvidia 266.58 drivers. Never tried SLI with F@H.
there shouldn't be a problem leaving the cards in SLI mode I'm pretty sure that when they fixed the Crossfire mode they fixed it for both
ok, vitamin v didn't work, disabling 8500 gt didn't work, updating windows didn't work, turning off raptor didn't work, updated to 266.58, testing now.
ok, now system is really laggy, which is actually what i expected in the beginning.
if this freezes, the only other thing to do is change clients, or should i change anyway?
smp is running, but not cpu...also, in config, -bigadv is not selectable, is this something only for i7, etc?
this is for cpu with 8 core and + or OC'ed i7 (4+4ht)
ok! says 17189 ppd, awesome work guys, mucho thanks!!! im gonna restart the rig in another room, and vnc into it to check on it, or do i need monitor(s) hooked up?
