    That sounds more like a monitor issue, do you have a second monitor to test to see if you can replicate it? If you can then it may be a software issue more than hardware. I've never heard of video output dying after time. Usually it works or doesn't.

    I've got my own reasons why I fold but I think that's actually pretty cool of EVGA to be doing this.

    Everyone ignore that LINK.:p It's is kinda cool that you could make a little money folding, but it's never been about money. I got 3k in hardware and a $200.00 electric bill/month just for the folding rigs alone. So, a little bit of money won't even put a dent in my expenses:laugh:. The money points are only good on the website/b-stock and cannot be used for trade-ups. It's not like it real cash you can buy a six pack with(staple folding refreshment).

    Crap I just realized I still was still submitting under the TechpowerUp! user since Sunday.... well, at least the team ID is the same.

    Any other Nvidia users notice significantly lower temps with the 1888 pt. work units???

    Yes, they utilize Fahcore 14 and have the pulsing characteristic. I like the current trend of work units. This summer will be much more bearable in terms of heat produced.

    Well the GTX 295 is going back with no hopes of having it replaced(newegg refund). To replace it I have just ordered the first of 2 GTX 260's 55nm 216sp. Should have it by friday and will fold the piss out of the working core on the 295 until then.;)

    Edit: Ordered a 2nd GTX260 to make a matching pair. Nice PPD coming this weekend.:rockout:

    Eh, it was/is more like a nightmare. The irony in all of this is, with all this hardware I have and my sig rig being a watercooled E8400 @ 4.05Ghz, what card am I gaming on? It's an 8800GS:cry:. I get stuttering, lag, and hangup's constantly. Oh, I cant wait for Dual GTX260 goodness to arrive.

    thank you :toast: I have been looking at the GTS250 for my gaming rig and fold on it and put the 9800GT in the server/folding rig. So that way i would get a PPD boost and a FPS boost

    Liking the big wus despite the time it takes. Moved my 8800gs to my server to fold 24/7 and run my 9800gtx as much as I can. Got my points average up... I have so much work to do on my main computer now, all I can promise is night time folding on main rig, but I won't stop! Hopefully, only 2 months until I get my 280 back.... I actually like the fact that I burnt out my $500 video card when I'm at half the poverty level, to help others! Pretty darn impressive I'd say.

    Well, I've got balls. I've emailed vijay, and asked for my 250k+ worth of points that I wasted on Bjorn3d and burnt out my gtx280. And yes I played the disablility route. I'm poor, and that really sucked. I want those points for TPU. And yes I use passkeys. Stay tuned.

    Why would you even waste his time with such a petty issue? You chose to fold to Bjorn3D and we all have to live with our choices. Hardware failures take place everyday and your GTX280 would have burned up regardless of team choice. While your generosity is duly noted, you cannot expect The Pande Group to make a precedent setting move such as crediting points from one team to another. Remember, It's about the science and not the points.

    @buck they said if you keep track of the points lost folding for them they will make up for it.

    I don't know what's worst:

    johnspack cooking his beloved GTX280 or I that gained a red card.

    I hope Bjorn3D is happy, 'cos we aren't. :eek:

    I have observed that the GTX 260 appears to be best bang for buck. GTX9800+ approx 4200ppd where for additional $50 or so you can do the 260 at 6500+ ppd...Just my personal experience...So the GSO equivalent is the 250 ATM...Still 260 at only $179 is best deal IMHO

    I max out clocks for all my cards. While the GTX260 is a well proven folder , I would take the $50.00+ savings and go for the GTS250 that will net you close to 6K ppd.

    9800GTX+ = 5900ppd(770/1970/1150)
    8800GTS 512 = 5600ppd(750/1920/975)
    8800GS/9600GSO = 3800ppd(720/1745/900)

    Core 14 + WU 5900

    What a decent work :rockout:

    Since the 5900 WUs kicked in, all my rigs are rock solid. Not a single error so far :D

    The card temps. drop came in great time to help with the coming summer.

    Bad I can't say the same about ATI. Well 200pt PPD raise is better than nothing :rolleyes:

    what card are you referring to?

    BTW: If you have noticed a points drop in last 24hrs, it is due to me taking the farm down yesterday . I had some cleaning and re-wiring to do. It is much more organized and running now. Full speed ahead!
