    It's all good and 6-8K a day is alot of points... anyway it's all about the contribution to the Folding cause.I hope to hit about 8k in total myself now.

    Sorry for double post -Well all seems to be running OK :) Here is my Fahmon stats

    [​IMG]

    Anyone know a good OC for these cards?? just want a stable good OC on them.

    Will have to take them off line for a few days as I am going to make room for them in the attic and will have to run power and network cables up to there first.

    I found that the core doesn't affect the PPD all that much. From what I've seen with the 9600GSO (8800GS also), I'd look to hit 700/1728/950 (core/shader/mem - not much PPD improvement with increases in mem speed either). Just to give you some numbers to work with. Also, with my 8800GT's I had to do the BIOS mod to give them 1.1V to the core. I believe you can do this with your cards as well. As for putting a system in the attic, just make sure to monitor your temps in the summer!

    Thanks for the numbers..going to wait till they finish the first work unit and mess with the OC a bit.At least this will give me something to shoot for.
    With the memory I think I will under clock it and just raise the core/shader and then see how the PPD/temps are.

    Do you use Rivatuner for OC'ing ?
    EDIT: Do you have any links to the 1.1V bios mod or can you do it with any card ?

    Yes I was thinking of this, it gets very hot up there in summer, may look into getting some kind of AC unit.

    Yeah I use Rivatuner for my overclocks, as for the BIOS mod just use Nibitor to retrieve and modify the card's BIOS. It's been quite some time since I last did this but there are lots and lots of instructions if you search for it with google (I'm still mostly sure you can perform the 1.1V mod on your 9600gso cards just like the 8800gt).

    ATI is coming out with some weird new WUs.

    I'm folding a 122pt and a 477pt Work Units now. :confused:

    I'm gonna be down some 5K points today. One of my rigs stopped working during the morning. :banghead:

    Hi, I joined the team a couple of days ago using my E8400 and 4870 both at stock, will hopefully will get around to doing a bit of OC-ing in the near future to push things along. However my department just bought a bunch of core2duo which I'll be installing the client onto also (no graphics card but hey every little helps).

    Here's to getting TPU into the top 100 teams!
     
    stanhemi, BUCK NASTY, oily_17 and 2 others say thanks.

    wish my school wasn't a dick about everything. I would love to see F@H on all the X2s and anthlons that they have. They just got new computers this year so you know they aren't the slow POS that they had before. Also there are about 20 P4s 3ghz in the computers where they use CAD. so that would be a hell of a help...

    BTW I MAYBE getting a the P4 that i sold before back :)

    800/1890/1000

    5529 PPD (384 WU)

    -----------------------------------------

    @cdawall

    Take it easy OC'ing CPU that will be folding. Don't forget, the CPU is under stress all the time.

    My SMP clients are folding @ stock clocks.

    I am not too sure if you smoked your chip. My 4850e took 1.7v and my 5kBE took almost 1.8v. maybe the duals can take voltage better

    BTW my 4850e is 2.5ghz stock and fold at 3ghz and sometimes 3.1ghz
