    I was kidding, this is the first time since I have been folding that it seems to have taken them that long;)

    ~3-3.5k maybe?

    i think you maybe alittle low on that one but not by much. My old 3870 used to get about that. I'm sure a 6850 would do better.

    IIRC a HD5770 gets ~2.5k, so ~3.3k seems about what a HD6850 should get

    -advmethods + the updated EXE = 9XX goodness (& 10C drop in temps for us GF100 users) :cool:

    Maybe 2000 or 3000 ppd, and i think i'm pretty generous there, even if you oc it with volt mod. Folding on Ati consumes around 15% of cpu power vs 2-3% for nvidia, and produce maybe a third or a quarter of an equivalent, in terms of performance in game per dollar, nvidia card (in your case, i think the gts 450 would be the contender). But that's the way i started folding. Two 4770 oced to 910 and 925 on the core yielded me 6-7000 ppd, if i remember correctly.

    My 5870 at default clocks does about 4k PPD if that helps, it crunches about 22.5 hours a day. The rest is because I game about an hour or so a day.

    Follow the link here: *** F@h Tech Assistance Thread *** and replace your existing folding@home application file on your F@H folder with the new one. Add the -advmethods flag afterward and you should get the 9XX WU's that yield more PPD and runs cooler on the CPU;)

    Add a space behind your original flag and add -advmethods

    I think Bog typo'd that one, the 9WUs run cooler on the GPU :D If your GPUs are not all on water, they will like you a lot more now.

    in that case, yes. they will be happier and so will i. perhaps i can adjust the fan speed down to better noise level. :laugh:

    I just did the voltage BIOS mod on my GTX260 (1.12v - 1.18v). Clocks increased from 640/1405 to 715/1525. Are these good clocks for a vmodded GTX260? The GPU core temp seems to be about the same. Do I need to worry about better cooling for the vregs now that there's more power going through them? It seems that my card is whining louder now than before the vmod when running F@H. Is that okay?

    On my GTX 260's I ran something like c610 s1556 m1010 and that was good for about 9k ppd using evga precision. What are aiming for?:)

    I'm aiming for the highest possible clocks. :p

    Getting 8714PPD right now on a 353 point unit. My 8800GTS has a 353 point unit also and it's hitting 6100PPD.

    That's the highest I could get on my GTX260's(8700ppd) with stock vcore. Push it any further and they would crash. The 8800GTS-512mb should max out around 6700-6900 ppd before a driver crash. I currently run them @ 725/1940/972 with fans @ 70%.

    It seems like I didn't get anything at all for my 1½ day -bigadv. I just killed the 6701 without looking if the 2692 had uploaded. Have restored the 6701 but it doesn't seems like any WU is pending uploading. Now two updates has passed.....

    EDIT: At least I now know why I didn't get any points:

    [06:13:45] Completed 245000 out of 250000 steps (98%)
    [06:27:38] CoreStatus = C000001D (-1073741795)
    [06:27:38] Client-core communications error: ERROR 0xc000001d

    Yet to find out what it means...

    Yeah, I noticed the drivers would crash after a minute of OCCT at the closest-to-stable clocks, but the card itself wouldn't produce errors. Hmm... conspiracy? :banghead:

    What about the rest of my card? I know the core itself can take it because temps barely changed at all... nothing happened to the memory either. I'm worried about the power circuitry being able to handle the extra juice. Anyone know?

    That would be a bummer if you had a client error @ 98%. Any way to finish the 2%?

    Yup, just caught that one. It only applies to GPU3 Fits.

    Nope the program deleted it. Oh well I do another in no time. I just rose my OC 75 MHz and is testing it on a 6701. If that goes well I will revert to 4 GHz as it was before and hope of a new -bigadv.

    EDIT: 4.075 GHz and 6701 was no problem beside it only was 25k PPD. Sucks when it can do 60K

    I think it could take it. I ran a few cards overvolted(with hard mod) and folded on them. I'm sure it is alot more stressful on them then a softmod due to voltage not being as high. Just be sure everything stays at a reasonable temp and you should be golden.
