    That I will....it's just disappointing to be limited to such little time, even now that it's getting colder :(

    does anyone else that has dual monitors have some really shitty lag when running something on both screens and folding?
    I never had the problem on windows XP but have always had it on 7
    I also didn't have the problem when i was folding on an ATI GPU but have on ever nvidia

    GPUs i have folded on just incase it may help
    SLI 8800GT
    8800gt(not SLI'ed)
    SLI 8800GTS
    8800GTS(current,not SLI'ed)
    GTX260 216
    hd4200
    3870
    4850

    once again i never had the problem with ANY of the ATI's even the weak onboard.

    I run 2 28" Hanns-g monitors with a GTX480 card and have no lag. I did with my 460 or 470 cards.
    The 480 runs both of them NP and folds at the same time.

    No...I had 2 24"s on both a GTS450 & a GTX260 w/ no lag

    It only took a week and some config changes, but I have 3 -bigadv on hook right now. Two are 2685 and one 2692(all good WU's). One finishes tonite, one tomorrow and I just started the 3rd, so 2.5days on that one. Gotta look into more WC'ing, as the hottest chip approached 90C yesterday(it warmed up a liitle this weekend). This same rig has a GTX460 in it, so if GPU3 bites into the -bigadv too much, I may have to do a card swap for a GPU2 card

    :toast:.

    I finally picked up a -bigadv WU on my i7 rig after 2 days.

    But it is a P2684 which is giving me a TPF ~53min and ~16,000PPD (folding on 7 cores) :(

    I too picked up a P2684. I'm getting a little bit better TPF (49:19 on 7 cores), but it's still going to be close if I finish in time. :(

    Could be worse... I was stuck with 6701's all week on the 2 newer machines. Hopefully the next one works out for you.

    Good ones on all three rigs - that is very good (luck). I too have a 2685. The first 5 frames were with GPU2 (24:02 = 52.272 ppd) and after that I took the GPU off the frame time went down to 22:53 (56.261 ppd). Overall I lose 1.200 ppd by not have the 9800 GTX+ but I save 60 watt. I'm sure that the penalty of running a GPU3 would greater then 1:07 TPF the question is the amount of extra watt you are willing to pay for the extra points a 460 would give you. My guess is that a 450 will brake even on the point side with the 611 pointers. Please do the experiment (take the GPU3 off for 10 frames or so) and report back.

    The 2684s are indeed the slower ones. Are you running GPU3 on the side?

    What speed you running at.Mine is at 4GHz but it was a quick OC to get it running, haven't played with my memory timings yet.

    Yeah I have two 460's in the same rig

    So you both have 7 treads and I assume about the same OC but still there is a big difference in TPF. It seems two 460's are stealing from not only the "reserved" tread but also from the remaining 7. If Nasty is runing at 4.2 or so then the math is a bit more complex. I assume that neither rigs are dedicated to folding?

    Mine is dedicated to folding and I use Process Lasso to set the affinity for the 460's to only 1 core and the SMP to the remaining 7 cores.

    My main rig GPU 480GTX 790/1580/1848, CPU corei7 960 OC to 4.2GHZ:rockout::rockout:
    All of it watercooled cpu runs around 55C GPU stays around 45 to 47C

    now i'm confused... i thought it was the oc of the card that mattered... i didn't think it impacted the proc?!?

    Then I must conclude that either -bigadv WU's work better on 8 treads then on 7 even when the 7/8 factor is taken into acount or that there are great variation between them - see below

    i7-920 @ 4.095 (7-8-7-24), 8 treads : 43:40 (one I timed in the past)
    i7-*** @ 4.00 ( so-so), 7 treads : 53:00 (yours ATM)

    53:00 * (7/8)*(4/4.095) = 45:17. I don't think that the timmings alone can acount for that difference. But apples to apples - I need to find my optimum which might differ from yours.

    Nice figures TexBill. You get better PPD on normal SMP the most do on the 2684 when running GPU3 at the same time.

    The i7 runs SMP fast and the GTX480 is the fastest card I've ever had. I run 2 28" monitors with that card and fold 24/7 and it does it with NP.

    The OC does matter the most, the GPU3 client only uses about 2% of the CPU for each client you have.I just like to leave 1 free core for it to use.

    Was the TPF of 43:40 on a P2684 WU ?

    Really like the tech bench setup Tex.

    Would like my rigs setup on those, very handy and keeps temps cool.

    Yes - I did 30:33 on a 2686 and 30:15 on a 2692.

    yes they do I have 4 of the tech benches setup 2-dimas tech's and 1-lian li and one I'm not sure what it is.
