    Thanks for the consideration dadi_oh.

    A lot of people ask me: Why are you wasting time and money with this? (folding)

    My answer is: I always had a wish, helping people, doing charity. BUT, I'm not good at all "among people". I have some experience and passion for computers. BINGO!!

    I FOUND A WAY TO HELP AND DO WHAT I LIKE! :) :roll:

    Well, I am still artificially injecting the 1.15 core back into my rigs every 24 hrs. It's worth the 10% boost and 4 out of 10 cards were still running 1.15 from yesterday. All my work has been accepted and no stability issues noticed. I also have no 511 pt WU's running right now:). PPD is back up to 55K and i hope it lasts thru the nite at this rate.

    Got my 2 EVGA 8800GS "B" stocks today. Not a bad deal for $72.00 each shipped and no rebate hassle to deal with. There are still more left if anyone is looking for a folding card deal: http://www.evga.com/products/bstock.asp?

    Just for General Info.

    All my rigs came back to normal PPD numbers, I mean, the values I used to have with the 1.15 core.

    I don't know if I'm just temporarily lucky getting "easy projects", but like I said, is happening in all my PCs.

    Thanks Beertintedgoggles, I really appreciate it. When I first started folding with a single HD3870(1900 PPD) in July, I did'nt think it would be so addictive. As of next week I will have a 3 each Quad GPU rigs running & 1 dual rig for a total of 14 GPU2 & 6 SMP clients. I am hoping to hit 75K PPD. Looks like I will finally retire my HTPC from folding and get it back to playing Blu-rays;). I want to thank everyone that has helped TPU get to #145. I also want to mention that I have 2 ea Socket 939 Sli boards with CPU/Cooler/Ram that are free to a folding member if you can put them to work.

    Out of my 10 cards, I have to re-inject 1.15 on 3-4 of them per day. No biggie for the PPB boost!:toast:

    Saw the instructions at the beginning for sli ect, how do I enable my 9800gtx as a 2nd folding card? No matter how I set up shortcuts ect, it keeps starting my gtx280... I fact how do I make it just use my 9800gtx, say like when I'm gaming and need my 280?

    Do you have Sli enabled? Have you used the -gpu 0/-gpu 1 flags? Have you re-installed CUDA drivers and extended windows onto your 2nd monitor or card(xp only)?

    No, don't have sli but would like to run an instance on each gpu, I'm folding right now at 500ns+ per day performance, and still running my tv tuner and browsing at same time...
    Looks like at these settings, I should pull a wu in less than 2hrs. Not bad I guess. And yes I used the flags, and made 2 separate entries in application data folder. Only works with sli?

    Wow, set to 100% I'm now doing 720-750ns/day, wonder how many wus a day a person can do? I'm going to game a bit, and then let this go overnight to see how many wus I get. I notice shader speed on my gtx280 increases folding speed pretty good.

    It feel's good to be on a team made up of great people! Thanks mmaakk. Were going to keep doing what the original TPU F@H team did......Fold like crazy! We are fortunate to have GPU's and crazy PPD. They started with CPU's and were doing 1/4 of the PPD. They deserve the respect:respect: Watch for me next week. I should be putting out close to 500K per week.

    mmaakk, are you running v1.19???

    It should not work at all with Sli. You sure both cards are running? Are they both "hot to the touch"?

    Yes Buck, all my rigs have 1.19.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, everything looks pretty good.

    PS.1 Before somebody ask: I'm not pushing my GTX 260, that's why only 7150 PPD.

    PS.2 I did mention about this yesterday (check quote), BUT EVERYBODY IGNORED ME!! :slap:

    I just started Folding@Home, can someone explain to me tips or any other things that can help me? I didn't feel like reading through all 107 pages...

    Frustrating little app.. finally figured out how to make it use my 9800gtx, but the display just shows my gtx280, even though it's not folding. However now when I try to start a wu on the gtx280, it sits at 0 for a moment, then sends results, and cycles like that a few times, then just stops. The 9800gtx is using id 1, and the gtx280 is using id 2, and yes all shortcuts have been properly made. Does it matter which gpu uses which id? The 280 is -gpu 0 and the 9800 is -gpu 1. Oh well, did 5wus for 1440 points overnight.....
