    That's more like it. Some projects have a slow and a faster part but I havn't seen this big variations.

    Temporarily set up my 8800gts to fold until my uncle decides he's ready to buy it (maybe in the year 2436). I got fahmon to grab stats from the machine through the network using file sharing... notice the red box ;)

    doh, just realized the tpu logo blocks out my ppd... it's 12685 right now :rockout:

    Having problems with the new Sparkle GTS450, it keeps locking up the computer and it's not even OC. Switched it from that computer to a different one same thing is happening. Tried installing newest drivers and that didn't help. Not sure what to do next maybe take it back to Fry's and get a different one. If I do that then I'm going to just get another Asus model, it has been running with NP every since day one, even OC to 950 it still runs great. The Sparkle might just be a bad card and getting a different Sparkle card may fix the issue. But it's a 75 mile drive one way to take care of this problem so I might just get something that I know works.

    There is a MEMTEST for GDDR5 (somewhere out there). Try that and feel better on your 2x75 mile drive.

    Did a ltillte bit of testing.

    I just realized that nvidia has released a new Sept. 2010 Cuda 3.2. Tested it this morning and got a 2000 ppd drop from EACH 5 client. Around 33000 to around 24000ppd. Installed the cudatoolkit 3.2.7, the 3.2 gpucomputingsdk and the 260.61 3.2 display driver. Everything is as normal until i saw the fahspy numbers! Reverted all to 3.1 and 257.21 drivers. All ppd came back to normal. Looks like upgrading is not an option!

    On a side note, stay away from the beta service pack for 7. It slowed every client, including SMP.

    Tried it and it gave me several errors, plus the heatsink and fan on the sparkle GPU is a piece of crap. It does not keep the memory chips (57C) as cool as I think they need to be. If I was to OC this card the temps would be through the roof. The highest the fan will go is 90% and at that speed it's not loud but barely keeps the card cool (57C). My Asus never gets above the 45C mark with fan speed set to 65% all the time. So it looks like I will be going on a road trip soon. Thanks for the help.

    I'd agree with CP here, my GTS450 is cool, quiet, OCs like a champion, and does great PPD :)

    Yep I got the Sparkle because it was on sale didn't even cost $100.00, now I'm seeing why it was so cheap. I will be trading it in for another Asus or maybe even a 460. All depends on what they have available at the time i make the trip...

    I see that Buck just dumped his second -bigadv for today. WTG. Sorry that mine turned out to be hot air. 20 hour to the next one and THEN I will swap RAM. I'm pretty sure running the current ones at spec speed/timmings must have been the course of my BSOD.

    Cheap things "usually" turn out to be expensive.
