    The HDMI is a handy feature for me. I'm running Vista on the HTPC and I used to have to swap a DVI from my main rig to the HTPC 2nd GPU card to enable it. Now I leave the HDMI plugged into the 2nd GPU and it's always enabled:)

    Will the cards complain with that much extra on the shaders??

    I have not oc'ed any of mine yet, as I don't know how much they will take and not error out.

    The stock coolers are kinda weak on these things, hence the clip-on fan in the pic.

    Your running stock clocks on all your cards?:eek:

    9-260s and 2-250s and 2-9600gso. I have just started the FAH/GPU thing. I can set them up and run but don't have any idea how much/how to overclock them:eek:

    Mike, you can should be able to get between Buck's scores and mine (in my system spec menu) without much issue on your GTS 250s. The only reason I've been able to run mine that high with stock coolers is I have my rigs in my basement which is about 65 F.

    That's about 5%, could that be used as a general guide for the 260s also??

    Oh, we are gonna have to hook you up. Give me the conditions your cards fold in. Avg room temp, open cases or closed, and any assistance from portable fans? Also supply 65nm or 55nm on the 260's.

    I run all fans @ 100% and overclock to the bleeding edge of crashing. I'm sure we can find you a nice comfy Overclock.

    9600GSO's overclock like mad. Stock shaders 1350 and overclocked to 1760....

    With my cards being Vanilla, they are stock 675 core so they end up having around a 12-15% OC. Mine are bleeding edge of crashing, and then backed off a notch or two. Basically all I did is looked around at what people were posting they'd gotten theirs too and then I shot for the stars.

    With overclocks, I estimate you should have 86,300 avg PPD. I look forward to talking tomorrow.
    :toast:

    For folding on the 8xxx and 9xxx cards, core and shaders are most important. The GTX2xx cards require an additional memory O/C to get them into their sweet spot.

    I'm going to miss this banter! Have to shut down all folding now, I need the parts out of my server. Was fun folding with you guys! Keep it up!

    I was always told memory was least significant with the 200 series?

    Hey Buck, I'm folding with my GTX 260 at stock except for shaders at 1450. What are the best settings for it?

    :eek: That's why my 2 GTS250's throw an "UNSTABLE_MACHINE" when I OC them:banghead: cause I only play with the core and shaders. Will have to experiment in a minute;)

    GTS250 are still 9xxx architecture, so mem o/c will not help. Remember the order of importance for all cards when folding: shaders, then core, then memory(GTX2xx only).

    The minute that I do an OC, GPU-0 will spit an UNSTABLE_MACHINE error but GPU-1 is fine:confused:
