    So true :ohwell: :shadedshu

    That's why I never get the cheapest product that will do, I always get something a bit higher up :)

    Aha, I thought that was BSOD-induced. But I guess it can't hurt to be too cautious
    :shadedshu :ohwell:

    Best of luck...maybe OCed too far?

    You got part one of your questions taken care of by of vice Capitano. Yes - 0:37 is good. My 460 is at 0:50 and my 450 is at 1:16 (same project as you are running, don't listen to the 260/275 guys they are running a different project)

    Hmm....I'm lost then.

    Does it happen only when the CPU &/or GPU is loaded? What does memtest say?

    Mine is at 36sec. Have you reached your final clocks? The more I read up on other people OCing the more I want to attempt 800/1600.

    Once again it pays off having a good relationship with the Man upstairs.
    Sent my 260 in for RMA a while ago after I eventually found out it was faulty not my mb.
    They phoned today to say they can't fix it so swopping it out for a new 460.
    Free upgrade!!:D:rockout:

    I haven't been able to check anything yet. When I boot it up, I put everything under load. :laugh:

    It's fine so far, all I did was load defaults, the only thing I can think of is that I had it at stock/undervolted and it was too low as far as volts, but i don't remember if I had it undervolted or not. :( It's a default voltage now, so far so good.

    XFX. But that could just be the local agents who are so on the ball.
    Saying which, when I sent my EVGA mb in as I originally thought that was faulty, the agents actually asked me to send in my processor and memory so they could check it themselves. They could have quite easily just sent it back as it wasn't faulty.

    ive been to 850/1700/1700 on my top card,im not sure if the 470 i got from bog can do it so i havent tried. It took me 1.1v to hit the above clocks and it was on water so heat wasnt an issue..I miss water especially when folding 24/7:laugh:

    Hi everyone. Just sold my 9800gx2 and my gtx 260. I needed the money, and anyway wanted to refresh my folding rig. So after a 18000 ppd cut (one damn big ouch!), managed to get my hand on a gt 430 for 45$. Just can't pass on that right? So i checked a bit and found that i can get around 6-7 thousands ppd for this card, and it could clock in the 800mhz range.

    So is anybody here who's folding with a Zotac gt 430?

    Wow, that's amazing!!! :toast:
    Best of luck, I hope it remains stable :)
    Well, I'm sorry to see the cards go :/

    I've seen the GT430 get as little as 5k PPD on the 611pt WUs, but up to 10k on the 9XXpt ones :eek:

    If you can get one or more 450s at some point in the future, that would be cool :)

    Wow. From 5000 to 10000, that's quite a range. Looks like the client could use some optimization.

    Yes it's sad to say goodbye to a card that had folded over 4000 WUs (9800GX2). I don't like the price of the gts 450. I could not find one for less than 130$ new and used they are still pretty rare. But i'm now leaning more toward a gtx 470 or 460. In maybe 10 days, i'll have 200$ to spend on a new folding card. Hope i'll be able to get my hands on a used gtx 470 at that price. Otherwise i'll go the 460 road.

    Wow just saw an Asus gtx 465 for less than 200$ (by a hair at 197, but still!). Is the ppd gain going to outweight the high temps (?) over a gtx 460?

    Wish i could get my hands on a gtx 275 co-op... 13000-14000 stable ppd...
