    Ya know I just installed the new drivers, 196.75, and it only does it when I fold. I can game and come back and its all good. Maybe Ill roll them back and see what happens

    I'd either roll back or upgrade to 197.13. I put 197.13 on my machines after keeping them at 190.62 for awhile and I haven't noticed anything wrong. 196.75s were the recalled drivers, though for a different reason. This still could be a bug with the drivers though.

    You'll probably get that sixth place pie today or at least 7th, though possibly higher, as I'm cut down to 20-25k PPD so I'll be contending for 10th ish. Question is, do I spend money I probably shouldn't spend and get like a 2000VA backup, or perhaps just a line conditioner? Or just another cheapo surge protector. Hmmm decisions, decisions.

    I just bluescreened myself folding on my 9800gtx and gaming on punchy... a slight up in cpu vcore fixed it.. also brought up fsb and ram speeds, knew these mushkies had 1100+ in them!

    Was it actually a surge protector? You're in CA, but here in the USA, a surge protector has to say that on the bottom. Many that try to hint that they offer some type of protection actually say temporary power tap.
    As for your question, there's always what we SHOULD do and then there's what we CAN do. Of course it depends on the quality of your power coming from the grid.

    Heh, I'm pretty sure it was sold as a surge protector, though the thing looks to be about $5 so I wouldn't be shocked if it actually isn't. The power of Edmonton in general is pretty clean and reliable it seems. There are few brownouts, very few blackouts and its seemingly alright quality. Couldn't say for certain because I've never really done much to check it or test it. Feh, I'll get a surge protector just to get back up and running and then go from there. Can never have enough surge protectors.

    I know! I barely get any anymore.

    Crazy Folder indeed :cool:

    After my Phenom is gone I will consider picking up a GTX275 to add to my i7 rig as it hobbles through the Summer. Seems like I have to just to stay even remotely in the same league :laugh:

    btw, were you able to get that SODIMM in the mail for me :D?

    Nope not yet work sent me out of town all this week for some training. I will try to get it in the mail sometime in the next few days. Will let you know when it happens...

    Go for a GTX285 they put out a few more PPD than the 275's do. Although I'm sure everybody is waiting on the new fermi's to see how they will do with folding.....:>)

    I may be trying an Nvidia card again soon, if I get an SSD I'll have to reinstall Windows anyways, so I'll either be trying an 8800GT or an 8800GTS G80. If whichever one I try works without driver issues, I'll probably pick it up, and if I do it'll be folding

    I really wanted a GTX 470 or 480, but with the heat and power usage of those cards I had to come up with a different solution. Hope to see you folding soon.:)

    I likes my 65nm gtx cards! Once they behave, they rock! I did some more testing on the 280, mild oc, dropped vcore to 1.16v. Runs like a dream...

    According to AnadTech - http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3783&p=6 then a 480 folds 3.5 times faster then a 285. "Folding@Home is the first benchmark we’ve seen that really showcases the compute potential for Fermi. Unlike everything else which has the GTX 480 running twice as fast as the GTX 285, the GTX 480 is a few times faster than the GTX 285 when it comes to folding. Here a GTX 480 would get roughly 3.5x as much work done per day as a GTX 285."
