    Is 182.50 still the way to go with drivers? F@Hmon is reporting 4.2k on a 353pt wu (project 5765) from my 9600gso running at clocks posted in specs right now with 182.50 drivers

    My electric bill actually went down last month. My guess is that power is cheaper during the summer time. I'm on board for this month also that means

    I had a little issue with smoke from a motherboard yesterday:eek:. Seems a 650w Antec will not power 4x 8800GTS 512's with a healthy o/c:eek:. I did some damage to the ATX power connector. So, i've got 6 cards down(39K worth) until I can re-install xp tonite. I'll then have 2 cards left while waiting to recieve my PSU on Wednesday. It will be Wed nite before I am 100% again.

    Ouch! With only damage to the ATX connector, you got real lucky (with the help of good power proctection circuitry in the PS). It'll put a small dent in your PPD. This folding & crunching is an expensive habit.

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-

    Power went out while I was at school and I lost about 6 hours of runtime on F@H on my 9600GSO (didn't even get to finish the 1888 pt. wu I was working on when I left for school :shadedshu), and on 3 instances of WCG, one powered by my Kuma, one by my Coppermine, and one by my mom's AthlonXP Sempron 3000+ (which I should probably check to see if it's running)

    At least nothing kaboomed on me like buck :cry: now those canucks will run us over for sure!

    Well I have a 9600GSO, you have an 8800GT. I had a bunch of problems with my 9600GSO that didn't let me fold... but I got that sorted out now (obviously). On the crunching side, you have a quad, 2 duals and a plethora of singles... I only have my dual, a socket A Sempron 3000+ and a slot 1 pentium 3 750mhz.

    I know how you feel. I went to install Paulieg's 8800GTS in my E2180 machine, and after powering it down and installing the card, it wouldn't power back up. The PSU died...It's been making a loud screeching sound for a good while now, I should have replaced it a while ago.(I should probably replace all my Antec's really, I've lost faith in them after so many failures.) Waiting on a new one from newegg, and a 120mm fan to replace the CPU fan that failed also...good thing the Thermalright Ultra-120 was able to handle the E2180 passively.:laugh:

    See, this is what happens when you go into semi-retiremnt and don't pay enough attention to folding machines...

    Well I apologize to the team. While at work i called my son at home and found that he had plugged the Vac into the same circuit the folders were on and tripped the breaker. All my folders were down for 4 hours. Ill try to make it up. Sorry.

    I too went down on Sunday for about 9 hours. Didn't lose like you guys, still...

    Also what's up with Kakoa Stats? They're not feeding my need for stats!

    I agree. Looking at the EOC stats for the day, it we looks like we only dropped about 2,000pts from yesterday. People on the team are stepping it up. No matter what your position in the rankings is, your points count.:toast:

    I agree that stats have been weird lately. I just checked Stanford's and the time of the last WU on the report it gave me was 4 hours ago! EOC has 2-3 zero point updates per day lately.

    Secondly, is anyone Folding on this? That cooler looks like it would be great for Folding, but MSI has had some mixed results from their custom coolers - not cooling issues, noise issues. It's $95 after MIR with free shipping at the Egg right now with promo code EMCLXMS75! And, it appears to be a true GTS250, not just some relabeled GTX9800, having only 1 PCI-E power connector.

    As I will be sticking my spare 8800gt in a print/file server I use for my LAN to do WU's, I have a question about Remote Desktop applications.

    I've always used Terminal Services to RD that rig, but doesn't it sometimes cause problems with F@H GPU? I switched over to using Teamviewer for my file/print rig, but will that conflict with F@H GPU as well? Or would VNC or similar be better? What program do you guys use to remote desktop your folding rigs?

    Thanks. :toast:

    UltraVNC is what I use for my 4 other machines, works well, as none of them have a monitor.

    Uhoh... I left for a few hours and I just came home to a bunch of nand errors and EUEs, leading to a 24 hour delay. I only clocked the core and shaders, 700/1700 which is lower than what most people run. Looks like it's back to 182.50

    I stopped folding my 280 for that reason, however with the same drivers my 275 fails less often.

    I lost my internet connection tonight for about 2.5 hours. Looks like less pie for me, and more for everyone else. On a plus note I ordered an Itel e6300 Wolfdale on Monday and it should be here on Friday. I'm going to pull my Asus P5Q-E out of early retirement.
