    Oh yeah, It's definitely addictive. In the past I have thought about stopping due to $250.00 per month electric bill($350.00 entire house) for folding. Then I get to thinking about what I will do with all this hardware and then I decide to stick it out. With the new 5900WU, the elec(and heat from rigs) is not as much of an issue:toast:. Looks like I'll be around here for a good while. Fold on...

    Yeah, if I can work out this gtx280 problem, I'd like to get my 9800gtx back folding. I hate only having an 8800gs to fold with! But I bought it specifically to fold with, so at least it's getting used!

    My PPD is effectively nuked today too, we'd have broken 400k. Came home to find somehow my Windows Auto Update was re-enabled (you got me on how though). So it auto - restarted early on in the day. Smashing.

    What we need is all those that have signed up to get back to folding, it can be done though.

    I've finally got one of those 5902 WU's, I didn't have the advmethods flag on so wasn't getting them. Seems to be crunching away happy enough @ 4400ppd on my 8800gts. I miss the 480point wu's lol used to get 5400ppd on this card.

    That just happened to me too! I awoke to find that windows had restarted and had stopped folding! DARN.

    Has anyone else experianced an increase in system crashes with the 5900 WU? I'm getting the wierdest errors and system failures recently and the only change is the new work units. I was up until 1am last night re-installing XP/4x GPU clients & configurations on one of my quad GPU rigs. This rig folded 24/7 for 4 months until yesterday:shadedshu. I guess it's just a cooincidence?

    Possibly coincidence. Do you restart the rigs periodically? I find my computer gets quite unstable if it's been folding continuous for 7+ days.

    I'm 20% on my first 5900 wu. So far so good. PPD for that client has risen to 4600ppd :D

    Im actually folding a 5902 (R2, C852, G0) my card is squealing every so often and my F@Hmon is showing progression in percentage but the display window will show iterations then they dispear and repeat. No PPD displayed in either?!?!

    It's worth 1680 points if I can get it finished.

    Thats what mine was doing, but my GTX280 was making noises when it was pausing, then it would get quiet when working. I left it folding overnight and though something had gone wrong due to the noise the card was making.

    Son of a *****. Well, my PPD shows itself as completely inactive for the past 24 hours. I started it running when I got home yesterday (after finding Windows somehow magically reset itself to Auto-update) and I know it was running when I left this morning. At least the computer was on, it should have been running. This kinda thing pisses me off. Right now (at work) I'm not sure if my computer conked and I've lost components, my computer had a minor issue but everything is alright, or if my house is a smoldering ruin due to explosive 9800GTXs that somehow managed to level the place. Obviously some are more likely than others but still.

    Windows auto update is the culpit, it is not instability. I give my computer a "rest" period each day when they play CS:S, or on my slower rigs, browse the rig, it is a good cooldown for them!

    I disabled it again last night. So this time its either magically reinstated again, or its something else. I usually give my cards a rest on the weekend (a restart). And I do game every now and again, but my gaming has really taken a side seat to work around folding. For instance I'll only do it if I know I won't get anymore WUs done in one day. They can rest when they're dead. ( I say that now, but I know I'll be crying like a wee little girl when they do go down the drain. )

    It should be already. I didn't do anything special to my GPU2 clients and that's pretty much all I get now. In the past 3 days (of it working) I've only had 1 that was different, and it was a 384 pointer.
     
  24. kyle2020 Guest

    hmm, the majority I get are the 500 odd pointers, with the odd 384 cropping up from time to time.

    Well, my SMP client is working because it just turned in a WU last update. Neither of my 9800GTXs are though. Both seem to have stalled. This worries me more, because something stopped the GPU clients but not the SMP one. Crap, please don't have died on me.


    Edit: Newtekie1! I summon thee! Hear my call here. These 9800GTXs still under warranty? Maybe I should run them ragged till they burn out. :D
