    If your stuck with the 611's(like I was on 2 clients):

    • Let the current work unit finish and confirm it downloads another 611, then stop the client
    • Change machine ID with -configonly flag
    • Delete Work folder and Queue.dat folder
    • Re-start client and watch a 912 or 925 pop up

    Hope this helps. It worked like a charm for me on 2 clients that had 611's repeatedly while I noticed the 3rd client picked up 925's all night long.

    I went to bed last night plagued with 611 WUs so when I saw this post I decided it was time to try something new.
    When I looked to see what fermi would be finishing next I noticed that I was now running all 912 or 925 WUs.
    Yesterday during the down time I switched to the new GPU3 client and removed the fermi flag. When we started getting WUs all I got was the 611 so I added the fermi flag again.
    I don't know if I should trust my chances and remove the flag.

    Tried it to the T and it didnt work :ohwell: Its a lesser impact for me so I wont trash the 611 it just picked up. Suppose I will just keep on taking the 611s until the work server decides otherwise :laugh:

    I replaced the folding@home .exe file with the 6.40r1 version and never got any 611 WU's (except yesterday's).

    Still no luck! Replaced the EXE and followed the steps Buck outlined. I guess I am unlucky?

    Did you try with just -advmethods? You better get your act together, I don't want to overtake a man with engine problems ;)

    Thanks Bogi, running 6.40 on all my GPU3 clients now and it seems to be working with -advmethods flag.

    I'm preparing for more Fermi cards to arrive this month, so I started moving my 3 Fermi cards to a spare MSI K9A2 Platinum, but could not get it to post, so I had to put everything back:banghead:. I prob lost a couple of hours folding on a few rigs. I will have a 75K -bigadv dumping in an hour and a 63K dumping tomorrow. Hopefully we can stay ahead of the Canucks and close a little ground on them. Absolutely great job in the last 30 days guys!

    Best Month 32,499,006 10-10 from Folding@Home. Yes some month and we still have some updates left. I will join you in the -bigadv dumping but not until tomorrow (about 92k + 77k).

    Did I miss something????

    Now i know those rigs were folding during that window of time, and are still folding now, no resets, no power loss, no internet loss. Anyone able to enlighten me as to what universe those WUs got returned to?

    I think that time last night the servers handing out GPU3 WUs was down. Everyone's points were down for that time (basically the last update).

    Mine shows no GPU3 WUs returned, only the 783s from my GTS 250 running GPU2:

    We were lucky that Stanford was able to fix the issue so quickly on a Saturday Night.
