    The 280 is at factory oc of 633/1400/1188 and the 260 is at 633/1368/1050
    Oops, think the pny picked up the clocks of the xfx somehow... doesn't matter, it runs fine!

    It's all in the shaders, not the the core or mem.:)

    Yep, I know that, why I'm not trying for 700+ core. The 260 will do over 1500, and so will the 280, I just have to find the right balance...
    Discovered that jobs vary widely, currently seeing over 16k ppd on new jobs. Also found out I can fold on a 260 and game on my 280 at the same time.. nice!

    Hmm, seems a little more reasonable for ppd I guess...

    Oh, and Buck, you were right, the stupid 280 was destined to fold!

    Doing a bit of a benchmark folding run.. want to see what the 280 and 260 can pull, still not at full oc yet:

    [​IMG]

    They bounce around a bit, but pretty consistent. Some jobs drop ppd.... would love to see what I can pull on the 384 pointers!

    Don't get your hopes up for one of those. They seem to be extinct.

    Looks like I'm down for a day or 2. My entire apt is on 1 single 15a breaker, which I just blew so hard that it has to be replaced! I have 2 outlets on a shared 15a breaker which I'm using now, don't dare try to fold or I'll probably kill it too. My landlord is going to love this!

    A failing breaker may have been the cause of your problems. It will be interesting to so if some of your issues disappear.

    it seems from all the reading I have done about the display driver crashing all the time points to a Vista and MS update problem. So I will be getting Win7 soon and hope it all goes away.

    It's possible some of it is thebluebumblebee, but my new silverstone psu proves my corsair was hosed from day one, maybe by that. My gtx280 is running perfectly for the first time in over a year! I did notice the corsair was belching out more heat than my 280 under load, and this silversone produces barely warm air. It's so stable I can actually game for awhile at 1576 shaders, but it's a bit much for a 280, 1512 is plenty.

    Well, it seems my 3 gtx cards can pull upto 26k+ ppd. I probably won't be folding the 280 24/7, as I'm just drawing too darn much power! My small apt goes up like 15c+ with all 3 going. Man I feel sorry for anyone starting a 4xx series farm! I mickey moused a server box back to life so it can fold one of my 260s 24/7(only a single slot mobo left). And yes, I'm using sicky corsair psu on it, bad idea, but I hate wasting a ppd producing card!!! I still want to sli my 2 260s, but the slipatch is very inconsistent.. oh well. Again, thanks to Hertz and Buck for helping me get all these options! Now for a true intel sli mobo....

    I reconfigured my folding cart today:cry: What a pain in the ass! At least I'm ready for Sneekypeet's dual GTX275's that will be here on Tuesday(just in time). Of course, being the consummate host that I am, I wanted to have a cozy place for them to stay when they arrive.

    Here she is all ready to go, just waiting for the firepower.

    [​IMG]

    This Is how the cart looks now. I actually have one more rack on the bottom for some low power GPU's(GT240???).

    Umm, there isnt room for the Banchetto there;) ( I think that cooler may be a bit tall once on the rack)

    OT do I get honorable mention for the chimp challenge for my contribution? I'm kidding, just glad everything went to help out the cause.:toast:

    Nah, the Banchetto will be the Ying to my Yang/Beauty to my folding Beasts. It will house my i7-860 and possibly a GTX470 in the future. It will definitely be as conversation piece in the Living Room(the ultimate HTPC?). Thanks for the great deals Peet!

    Those are good folding cards. My 384mb model gets me 4000-4500PPD depending on the work unit at 700/1700/1700

    ya think my card will get that high in o/c? I just cant wait till I get it lol. I always wanted one b/c they are alright for the price. Next video card will be a GTS250. Then the 9600GSO will be a dedicated folding card
