    That's probably normal if you are using non-SMP folding on the CPU. I get something in the order of 400ppd on my Q6600 with a non-SMP session. My GTX260 gets about 7600ppd on the same machine so it is almost a 20 to 1 ration from GPU to CPU folding scores.

    That being said, the CPU folding is still important. The graphics cards are great for the type of folding that Stanford sends to them but there are some models that "have" to run on a CPU so it is valuable to keep CPU's in the equation.

    On a side note I have a E1200 Celeron dual core OC to 2.4GHz running Linux (Ubuntu) and with the SMP core I am getting about 2000ppd on that. Still no where near my graphics cards scores but weird to see a $40 chip outperforming my quadcore :) I have not tried running SMP on my Q6600 rig since I don't want to setup a password protected account on it (a requirement for SMP).

    Well, I can't really afford this right now, but this goes in my server to fold 24/7 for now on! Anyone have any idea how much an 8800gs can oc?

    Not bad, with very mild oc and my brisby running at 2.1ghz, it's pushing 4k ppd. Now if I figure out how to use this card, and brisby at 2.5 I'll bet I get 5k ppd!

    Oh, the 8800GS/9600GSO cards are great overclockers. You should be able to push the following clocks with Rivatuner. I use these clocks on 90% of my GPU farm.
    Core: 745mhz
    Shaders: 1740mhz
    Memory: 860mhz
    *Make sure to un-link the core/shaders

    HELP WANTED.

    When you guys mess around with gpu OC, what's the best to do:

    1. OC with the client running.
    2. Close the client.
    3. Pause the client.

    Is possible to pause in the console client? I just changed all my clients to console.

    I always change my clocks on the fly. You cannot pause the console client, you just close it out. Starts back up where you left off. Rivatuner is one of the few O/C tools that allows for Multi GPU overclocking. Congrats on choosing Console Client. It is a more efficient client and produces more PPD.

    Tried 650/1600/850, ppd up to 4300 now, turns out my server was at 1.9ghz, now at 2.2, may try for 4500ppd on this card. Nice little folding card!
    I guess next step on the card is 700/1700.. I'll be kinda blown away if it does it, but the performance now shows it just may do it!

    Thanks Buck. And yes, I'm already feeling better using the console. Seems more stable to me. I wanna see if I get any PPD improvement.

    PS: My internet nightmare isn't over!!! :cry: Almost a week already. Still very unstable. :shadedshu

    THANKS FOR THE HELP!

    Asus m2n-e motherboard, 4gigs corsair dhx pc6400, xp64 os, coolermaster 650w psu, 3600+ brisbane at 2.2ghz currently, can do 2.5, not much else in this server! I'd like to get the 5k+ ppds that buck gets on his 8800gs!
    Or are you talking specs of my folding card? asus en8800gs 384mb pci-e card?

    You will get at least 5k ppd, I promise you. You have a great scenario known as a single card. When I used to fold single cards, I could get crazy clocks and PPD(5500 ppd on a 8800GS @ 1834mhz shaders). You may have to replace Fahcore 11 with v1.15 if you have 1.19 currently. I could e-mail it to you if necessary. Rest assured that we will get that card screaming in no time at all.

    Hmm, is that 1.15 a console version? I guess as long as it's a gpu client, and will go faster, I'd like to try it. My server runs 24/7 so I'd like to rack up as many wus as I can! I believe in this project enough to forgo food money to get a folding card, so yes I want to crank out as much as possible!

    Buck, are you still injecting the 1.15?

    I'm happy now with the 1.19. Why don't you set 1 rig with the 1.19 for some days for test?

    This is only 80% on each core, and my server is pumping another 4.3k as well:

    i ended up returning the 9800gtx+ i bought.

    but i did get my 4870 running without eue'ing by adding another 80mm fan over the voltage regs.

    i also got my q6600 folding with the smp client. i only have a small oc on the quad @3.1ghz but it seems to be finishing a wu a day, so thats an extra 2k or so. been averaging about 7k points the last week.
