    CP that's a GT240 not a GTS version. It should OC, but not sure what it will go up to. Also it has never been registered.

    Might have another GTX460 bought...:D
    EDIT: yep got another GTX460 coming my way.:D:rockout:

    Damn Bill....you're really going to have quite the setup! :rockout: :respect: :toast:

    How many cards total now?

    OCed too high? My cards were stable with them, just hotter and slower

    The 494's might be the worst ever GPU2 WU. They run slow and hot. I'm not having EUE's with them, but my cards are running warmer with them than any other. Check for heat issues, and you may have to back off on OC's and increase fan speeds.

    They sure are slow. All my GPU2 clients have them now, and PPD is down as much as 1000 per card.

    Network probs back in Dubai. Internet is down. ISP guys are on their way to fix. My rigs are crunching as I have a good buffer. But unfortunately not folding. Added two 9800GSO cards in India.

    Counting the one I just bought that will make it 8 fermi cards now. 1-480 on water, 1-465 thats been flashed to a 470, 1-470, 3-460's, 2-450's.
    ION it's all for the team, so more PPD is a good thing.
    EDIT: That will be my limit till I get some more slots to put them in.:roll:

    Well I just added two more C2D's rigs to folding on their CPU's!
    So lets see that's Four C2D's, One Pentium D, One I7 and one 4870X2 on both GPU's. Still cant even compete with the awesome folding power of a Fermi.

    Anything you can do is certainly great! :rockout:
    When they pull the 9XX PT WUs they certainly do incredible PPD :rockout:

    The power draw with full load is less than a GT240 and they seem to run alot cooler.

    This shows how far they've come. The GT240 was know as an efficient, cool running, OC'able card! For an entry Folder, the GT430 looks like the "new" 9600GSO, even the same # of shaders.:laugh:

    A GTX460 is ~10k on the 611s and ~15k on the 9XXs. A GTX470 is right around 14-16k on all :)

    no

    i had the 470 and the 465 both overclocked

    the 470 did 15-16k on 9xx

    but on 611, it was down to 8-9k

    same for 465, except that 611 was around 7500

    I was thinking about getting GTX 470. I thought they would higher 9xx wu's.

    GTX460 is the best all around "bang for the buck" for power consumption/ppd. Getting ready to buy 2 more tonight so I can catch up with Bill!

    Edit: Only picked up one, but there is always next week.:rockout:
