    Yeah i'm pondering the idea of writing an OpenCL benchmark, in the same spirit as Prime95 for CPU's, in order to stability test GPU's. Not sure if it'll be feasible, but atleast it should be a good alternative to visually scanning for artifacts in games as a stability test.

    that would be good, but wouldn't it only test the core? so youd have to find a way on testing the mem.

    but id happily download such a test and use it for torture as it uses 99% 24/7 where as games and other stress tests usually dip and that!

    oh for us brits and alike TPU CC finishes at 7pm for us?

    Thanks for the help. I was referring to not being able to OC when I am NOT folding though. Folded for about 24 hours on the card, which it crashed, and now the card can't OC as high. Just seeing if was somehow related to folding. It's a pretty new card. Thanks.

    that happens to me sometimes when I bench hard, had my 7950 benching 1220/1770 and when I tried clocks like that after it crashed it would literally tell me to eff off.

    and I was told best way to deal with it, driver sweep and fresh install of drivers and oc software!

    worked everytime for me... till it crashed again lol

    Thanks. I'll see what happens. Currently added my FX-4100 into the fold :)laugh:) so that should be another bump.

    Anyone know what kind of numbers an A6-3400m would fold under Linux? I currently have it not running and folding on the two GPUs instead for ~4K in Windows, but I didn't know if it would be better to just fold on the CPU under Ubuntu.

    My Windows partition is shot so changing wouldn't matter much to me. :cool:

    I tripped the circuit yesterday with all the folding :) Still insignificant next to the rest of you, but my power bill will disagree! haha Sadly a lot of the WUs won't be finished in time.

    I thought the close was 9PM Pacific time? :confused:

    *Disclaimer- I'm probably wrong.... I'm absolutely awful at figuring out time zones ::eek:

    **EDIT- My bad I thought the CC ended at the end of the F@H day... which is 9PM Pacific AFAIK**

    Well, I got a workunit with an ETA of 2 days (and a 55 day final deadline! :eek:) last night,
    so that's it for me in this year's challenge.

    I wasn't getting the SMP bonus until halfway through this time, at least I'll have it next year.
