    I've used both and found no difference between them efficiency-wise on my 260. I like the systray version for the implementation of the systray icon and that's it...I don't care about the viewer, it does the job for me. I wish the SMP client had a systray option (maybe I missed it?).

    Yeah that's the main reason I use the systray I think, keeps my taskbar clear of excess buttons. I tend to close things down and that could be a bad thing :D It is out of the way on the systray.

    I've used both the console and system tray version (tested over a few days), as long as you have the app minimized there was no difference at all in your PPD.

    Edit: I like the system tray version better since when it's minimized it does not stay in your taskbar (at least with XP)

    I too like systray...Win7 build 7077 seems to allow me to OC my GPU's further. Very stable O/S.:toast:

    2 of my GTX 260's bit the dust from me replacing TIM, so they're going in for RMA. Don't know how they really got fucked up though.

    Wow, I never heard of something like that, are you sure they are dead? What TIM...AS5? If so, make sure you don't overdue it on the chip surface, it's conductive. Try an alcohol wash and reapply, it may still work.

    I started to get high temps and GPU crashes with my GTX 260's. I replaced the stock TIM with Tuniq TX-2 and temps are 10c lower with a higher OC:rockout:. I think I may have cooked the stock TIM during the last month folding 24/7 with aggressive o/c's, not to mention that one run @ 105c..

    Came home from work and noticed it. Fan was @ 100% and the funny thing was the card was putting out 9K ppd:wtf:, Sound like a bad o/c or a voltage issue. Re-booted and everything was fine. Has not happened since.

    Oh, they are back. Out of 14 GPU's , I have 8 of them folding 511pt WU's.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Does 3k PPD 8800GTS G80 on a 384 point sound normal?

    Yes, it's normal for stock clocks. Overclocked you should get 3800+ out of it.

    No idea.. I just had the cooler off too. I took a video of it, I will look over it to see if my crappy phone camera picked it up.
    Seems the highest I can get it is 575, after that OCCT crashes.
    Says A2 at the end of the IHS.

    Don't worry about core speed so much as shaders. I've found little to no difference in ppd on the core so I've slowed the core down a little bit on my 8800GS cards to keep heat down a little.

    Wow ok, pumping the shaders up to 1420(stock core) gave me 3100 vs 2800 of before. I will try getting higher now.

    I had the same. I turned it off, but like Mx I found mine 're-enabled' itself somehow. It seems to be off for good right now. But one of these days I'm sure it will try something shifty.
