    I have my F@H Mon set to All Frames in the Calculate PPD tab in preferences, with that it's showing me @ 5886.72PPD on the GTX260-216 of mine and 3109.69 on my Q6600. Of course both are OC'd to their usual values. Though if I change it to the last 3 frames they change depending on the WU. I'd say you're not too far off if that's how you let FAHMon calculate PPD. I'd rather have a total average value anymore than the "last 3 frames"...I feel I get a more realistic value out of how I'm currently running FAHMon. Sure we like to see the higher PPD's are components can attain, but in reality there isn't enough consistency in how the work is dealt out and how it's processed to be valuable beyond a variable. At least in my opinion. I'm perfectly fine with where my rig is at for folding, it does generally fold 18-24 hours a day depending on how much I'm working and how much I'm gaming.

    Does anyone in Canada have a used 260 for sale, if price is right, I may be able to swing it by the end of the month. I really hate this 9800gtx....

    I was also thinking...

    What if we all changed our names to TPU for like a week, see if we can all join in to become the number 1 person in the world folding other than anon?

    havent tried raising the voltage yet so i may get over 800mhz on air. temps are decent too. while folding i see max of 64c with the fan at 60%.

    i LOVE the GTX2XX cards. i cant wait till the GTX3's come out. :D

    I haven't run any games on the 280 yet, I feel so cheated! Well I ran them for a few minutes here and there, but soooo much faster than this 9800. Oh well, at least I can fold the 8800gs that I bought just for that reason now!

    after looking at FAHmon 21-22hrs is about how long it takes my 5kBE (when not used for anything but folding) to fold a 1760pt WU. I know it takes longer when i use it for things and when it is folding a bigger WU so deadlines shouldn't be a problem for the 5kBE or 4850e

    EDIT: i answered my question in my other post myself :laugh:

    At first i was like WTF, but the idea is growing on me. All points would still go to TPU and it would bring more attention to the Team on the worldwide f@H stage. I'm in for 83K PPD. I'm still folding for you(WhiteLotus), Gam, & PCPraiser100 and that would stop for the week. I don't want to "half ass" do this. We need alot of people onboard. It looks like we can only count on the usual online members.

    Better than not folding at all depending on why you're folding! :p

    I do hear ya, back in september when I stepped up from a 192 to a 216 (only paid shipping), I was annoyed, my 9600GT at it's oc'd levels does ok, but with these newer WU's it competes closer to my q6600 @ 3.6ghz anymore. Which is close to half what my GTX260 does. Keep your head up, at least you're still folding, though it would be cool if/when cures are found those that donated or found the cure should be notified and announced imo. Maybe they are and I've never seen or heard of it tho!

    Can't believe this 8800gs is doing 760/1730 stable so far, thank gawd it's cheap heheh! And I've seen papers on Parkinson's, they found the misfolded protein, it's on for a cure now. I forget where it all is now, I deleted a few bookmarks in frustration. Still getting over my 280....

    I have o/c the clocks of my GTX285 to these values:

    [​IMG]

    The core tops at 80c during folding, with the fan running in 55% power. I think that i have some room to o/c more, but the fan will surely run faster.. Guess that if i want more i must get some other cooling solution.

    What a monster those cards are. I will one day step up to G200. I would love to have a GTX295, but for the money I can get 4x 9800GTX+ and have 8K+ more PPD. With GTX250 coming, the 9800GTX+ price should slide even more.

    Here's a screeny of my PC while folding, you think the temps are ok for 24/7 use at the speeds?

    Fahmon works with the systray. No problems.

    In my opinion, silkstone, keep the systray for now. After you acquire some experience folding you can give a shot with the console.
