    Over 8k points today with some downtime on both rigs. Looks like the 5770 is helping a lot. Should be in the top 100 in no time :toast:

    The morning update places me four spots away from pie. I used to be about 10-14 spots away. I'll be happy adding another card, I still have or slot available :D

    I think a GT240 would do you well ;)
    4-5k PPD, ~70w, an small/quiet

    Although another 9800GX2 would be awesome ;)

    How much are GX2's as far as PPD? I can just buy my buddy a decent card for cheap. And get my GX2 back?

    Or i can trade my 8800's for the GX2? What do you think about that?

    Deffo trade the 8800s for the GX2!!!!!
    The 8800s are probably 8k together, the GX2 is a single card (D'oh) and does 10-12k. And then you'd have more room for cards! :D

    Awesome!!!!!

    How are you doing this?

    Sure when I get the new setup going I will. I can fold with one 8800 and one gx2 right? In the same rig?

    Yes, as long as you have enough PCI-E connectors for power, it is possible.

    I'm running a PCP&C 860 Turbo cool. got more than enough :D The 8800 is a six pin, which In total have four, and the gx2 is another six and a 8 which it has two eights. So I'll be good. Setting up the client should be the same as now just adding another gpu thingy right?

    How do I go about setting up the client on the GX2, would just one client use both cores correctly or do I have to disable SLi or what?

    Sweet Chicken Pattry!

    I think you have to disable SLi, and run a program for each card(I could be wrong tho)


    ---

    I'm ALMOST in the top 100(took forever it seems lol) 105th place. With just really crunching on a 9800GTX stock, and the cheapest non l3 cache AMD quad core stock speeds(while also folding BONIC 100%).

    Not bad looking today Average 3,924 points

    You're probably looking for this...
    HOW TO: Set up two nvidia clients

    You must use two different Machine ID #s, i.e 2 & 3 and two different switches, -gpu 0 & -gpu 1 for the first and second card when you set up the two clients. Be sure to use the console clients. You probably will need a dummy vga dongle on the second card.

    ---------------------------
    I've got my GTX 460 running.

    [​IMG]

    GTX 460 Testing
    Stock (as reported by EVGA Precision)
    Core: 675 MHz
    Shader: 1350 MHz
    Memory: 1800 MHz
    Fan Speed (Auto): 43%
    GPU Temp: 62C
    GPU3 Core 15
    TPF: 00:01:01
    PPD: 8654

    When this WU completes I'll see if I can't get a better PPD.

    Very nice Msgclb. I have 2 GTX470's running myself (will post screenies later).

    @CP-no need to disable SLI on that GX2 as long as you put a dummy plug on the 2nd GPU and have 2 different machine ID's (just like someone else said).

    What if the rig has the desktop extended, that's how I'm running the 8800's? It's windows XP

    To clarify msgclb's post about the PPD with the GTX460 (768MB IIRC), does anyone know what PPD the GTX285 gets with GPU3?

    62 C @ 43 % fan speed is nice. Can you hear it at all? I'm sure that that GPU is good for >800 MHz core / 1600 MHz shader and if it scales well this could bring home more then 10.000 PPD. Can't wait till I get mine. I'm done with -bigadv - just lost one, and not due to UNSTABLE MACHINE.:mad: GPU folding FTW ;)

    Here's my first attempt at OC'ing my GTX 460. This GTX460 is the 768MB version. I can't hear the fan but my hearing has been degrade by 20 years of working around jet engines. Also my AC is having a hard time with the 95F (feels like 105F) outside temps.

    I didn't have a clue what OC setting to use so started with close to the EVGA GTX 460 SC. It wasn't until I started the GPU3 client that I realized I didn't change the memory clock.

    [​IMG]

    More GTX 460 Testing
    OC Settings (as reported by EVGA Precision)
    Core: 761 MHz
    Shader: 1522 MHz
    Memory: 1800 MHz
    Fan Speed (Auto): 40%
    GPU Temp: 64C
    GPU3 Core 15
    TPF: 00:00:55
    PPD: 9598

    After some Google searches I believe that a >800 core clock and a +10,000 PPD will be possible.

    Looking good, looks like those 460's pack some serious punch!

    OMG, that card will o/c like nobody's business.:rockout: Should at least be good for 850/1800+/1800. Crank up that fan and let us know what is stable with GPU-3. Wow, sorta reminds me of the O/C's you could pull on the 8800GS/9600GSO's. Can you measure wattage?
