Wow! Have you guys seen this? Evga GTX260/216 896-P3-1255-AR for $114 after MIR!
You know what my answer to that one is.....
If anyone here is folding on a gtx280, drop your gpu volts to 1.15 or less, even at full oc, this chip does not need 1.19v. I'm testing at 1.14v now, and I think it will pass. Using 1.00v for 2d and I think it will go lower as well.
Also, I've lost hours of downtime because of the fah servers today, anyone notice no results or new work units getting out, right now it's down again? Edit: just went back up again, jeez......
Also before I forget, congrats to Oily_17 for hitting 3 mil Way to go mate....I will be joining you there shortly
Looks like 4 of us will be breaking 1.5 mil very shortly. Good job guys!
Next experiment, fold at full oc overnight at 1.13v. I think nvidia lied to us about these chips, I won't be burning another one out! I think 3d v as low as 1.10 is possible, 2d of 0.95v, I don't know where they got these voltage ratings at....?
Edit: card is perfectly stable at 1.13v, folds like a champ, games like one too! Temps are in the lower 60s now. I use to see almost 80c....... I get close to 70c if I have all windows closed and it's getting hot in here... but now mostly lower 60s.
OK, 5th rig coming online right now.
Fold Buck, Fold!
Excellent! Good Job!
If anyone here has a gtx280, just thought you should be aware, I'm now folding at 720/1512 at 1.11v. Much lower temps, completely stable! Lower could be possible, I'll have to test.
Way to go team! We're closing in on 65! I've thrown some extra juice in, let's roll!
WTF EL ??????????????
52K PPD ??????????????
What am I going to say to my buddy Bogi
You should ask him if there was a challenge for 50k too. Because I seem to be hovering right around the 48-53k range in realized PPD.
I've still got some hardware testing to do so it will fluctuate some when I bring the rig offline. Plus its running on a borrowed processor but I'm not sure when I'll be getting mine to replace it. When I get the quad it'll most likely crunch its little heart out though.
Haha, there was a challenge, I was hovering at 40-45K PPD but I had to shutdown and outfit my GX2 with a waterblock plus my other rig is running also It is to be interesting to see how this turns out
Same message all day.
Which site is that on, you can try this site for stats
Thanks. I was complaining about the Stanford site. I go to the extreme overclocking site often, but it lags behind the Stanford site. For example, as I write this, I'm #157, but the ExtremeOC site says I'm still #160. No biggie. I'm still a newbie enjoying my climb up the ranks. I realize that will come to screeching halt at some point. I can't compete with guys that crank out more in a day than I do in a week.
Have to shut off my folders cause I got woken up by the sound of thunder and flash of lightning which is uncommon around this side of the country. Will turn them back on as soon as it clears.
I got my 9600GSO 96sp today... Will run the F@H gpu client soon when I get done overclocking it.
A quick 6 mins in the OCCT GPU test and 10-20 mins in Fallout 3 says this is stable:
I'll play more extensively soon... if it's stable I plan on backing it down to 680/1700/950(1900) and flashing the bios, that's all she wrote.
Can the 9600GSO and 8800GS be volt modded in the bios to 1.1V just like the 8800GT could?
I dunno. I don't intend to try... this card has no temp sensor. D:
^^that turned out to be unstable, new values for max are 680/1700/975
Overclocking completed. 680/1700/975 turned out to be stable for 1 hour 12 minutes in the OCCT GPU test... 0 errors. To ensure stability I backed down to 660/1650/950(1900) and flashed the BIOS with those clocks. Now running the GPU client for F@H...
Nice work Hat!
Somehow we've got to increase production, even just a few newbies folding would help. We actually have threats closing in which is disturbing!
