That's what I thought which is why his post below was confusing me.
I was only getting the 611 WUs on all my GTX 400 GPUs before my problem started.
Now I'm getting 912 and 925 WUs.
I'm not positive but I think my OC on my GTX 465 might have been to much when it switched to a 925 WU.
I don't remember for sure what the OC was but it might have been this...
611 WU PPD: 10998
I put it on the stock settings and now I'm getting this...
925 WU PPD: 11928
My GTX 465 has now completed 4 925 WUs. When I get some energy I might do some OCing.
This afternoon I ordered a GTS 450 to put in my 24/7 machine. I currently have a GTS 250 in this rig but it gets to hot to run very often.
I'm also building up my PayPal account to buy a GTX 460. This might not happen until I get my next SS check around the 20th.
Actually I'm not
With the WinSMP client, I had bigadv & 1 nV GPU comfortably running in 2GB on my i7 (XP Pro SP3).
Win7 + 1 GPU + standard SMP will run OK on 1GB
I will put these babies on 24 hour duty starting tomorrow
That's pretty crazy, wonder why the req skyrockets on a different OS. I mean I could understand if it was Linux vs Windows, but XP->Vista->7?!
Are you sure you were actually sent and working on a bigadv WU? Were you also getting the bonus? I just can't wrap my head around the difference.
just got the 465 up and running
BIG thanks to KieX for helping me through teamviewer cause im a fucktard at this lol
how does the ppd look?
PPD looks good, start the OCing
Speaking of PPD, what the heck is up with these new (at least to me) 494 WUs on GPU2? They are killing my PPD- went from 15k PPD across both cards to 13k PPD
will do later, im thinking around 750 on the core? dont think i can oc shaders alone
looks great to me
also on a different note i keep getting EUE on my 8800GTS i think it could be failing as i don't even have it overclocked.I think i need to test it with OCCT and furmark to find out if something is going wrong with it or maybe it's just F@H
thx guys, Buck said there was another 3k to get through some overclocking, so ill get on it later
think i will get the 470 up and running part time in a day or 2
Little noob to this.. but can you OC two cards at the same time through MSI Afterburner without the SLI bridge connected?
you should be able to, i think there is a checking box that says apply for similar cards
not sure about Afterburner but i know you can with EVGA precision so i would think you should be able to with Afterburner also.
Is that software tied to EVGA hardware? my 460's are MSI.
Also, can anyone give me some idea of what settings I can use on the 460's for stable folding?
i think evga precision only works with nvidia cards, i use it on my gainward and asus
You can do it with both. Precision is not tied to EVGA specifically but rather all Nvidia based GPU's (just about). It works with "most" ATI/AMD as well
Cool thanks for all the tips. Time to fire up the dedicated cruncher/folder and finally get it going full force sometime today.
i have the 465 as 2nd gpu in system, now i have overclocked it a bit
but i wanna test it to make sure it works, the problem is,....the testing programs only test on the 470
is there anythin i can do about it or just run f@h and hope it doesnt crash?
What is the program?
furmark, occt, kombustor
Didn't know it worked on most ATIs as well....that's cool
Yeah, it had a bigadv, a P268x (don't remember exactly). Didn't end up getting bonuses because I was an idiot, OCed it too high, it BSOD'd and didn't restart automatically (didn't have the shortcut where I needed it).....and it missed the preferred deadline by 13 minutes by the time I got it restarted :shadedshu :shadedshu
What sort of mem requirements have you had? I *might* be able to give it a shot on my i7 if you really want....but that would involve reinstalling Windows (running Kubuntu, got tired of Windows 7)
you could switch cards around and use the 465 as the primary and test it at the speeds you want or you can just run F@H and see if you get any EUE or crashes,etc. when i ran 2 cards that aren't the same i would use the F@H method the most often.
im doing that now lol
running @700 on the core, meaning 1400 on shaders, dont think they can be unlinked on these cards, if yes tell me how lol
so far it looks nice
up @ 12200pp from what the program says
you maybe able to get alittle more out of it. But i don't think there is a way to unlink the shaders. eek:ucking nvidia :shadedshu)
is there a software "volt mod" on your card?
btw next month i hope i can get a gtx460 or gts450 to replace my 8800GTS
You should be able to do 750/1500
That would be a nice replacement, I'm considering a GTX460 as a replacement for my 260 (GTS450 is about same speed)
