    An update on my situation (as if you care):

    I am currently in the process of building a new rig. I am gathering parts from my home town to bring back to my university. I am gathering parts from a computer I thought was dead, however:

    Last night I took my 4850, put it in the oven, and waited a few minutes. The good news is, it works, has great temps, but the bad news is it smells like honey baked ham.

    So until I go back to my school I can run at 2k PPD on my 4850, but when I get back I will be doing 15k. I am contemplating keeping both machines running, but I don't think 2k PPD would be worth it. Should I just buy another folding card and slap it in and call it a day, or should I get rid of the 4850 rig altogether?

    I have one rig out of three that does the same thing. I turned -bigadv off and it works great. Not sure why it's the only one doing that same thing.

    Nope. Eventvwr just showed a fault in FahCore_a3.exe with a bunch of timestamp gobbledygook. The PC is water cooled and temps are well within safe ranges. Windows 7 had a on-screen warning similar to the one I posted above.

    You could search folding forum for that fault. I bet someone (Bruce) will claim that it is an OC that went wrong. Was it a 2685? They tend to f..k up more often.

    It was a 2686. I've done many of those with no problems.

    Thanks for the link. I doubt it could have been an over-heating or overclocking issue. I've stress tested the system with everything from OCCT to IntelBurn Test to Prime95 at 4.2 GHz and no issues. I've backed the overclock down to just a notch below 4.0 GHz. Plus last night was way cold here. Temps dipped to 35 and probably reached 50 inside my Apt. My CPU never gets over 62° and the cores never even reach 70°. Voltages are well within Intel's recommended specs.

    Yes and from I could understand then it could be a RAM error but it could be something else too. Nice to know what to look for ;)

    I find some Mods on Folding Forums as being arrogant p*#cks!. I just browse every now and then to see if I can find what I'm looking for and not post. End of Rant:D

    It 's also interesting to find out how many of these mods know about hardware when giving speculations and/or conclusions as to what they think is wrong (with your hardware) when some issues point to the F@H clients or back to the Standford Servers:rolleyes:

    It's frustrating that there is no ability for these clients to survive any small error. Why can't the client circle back to the last known good point and try again?

    When using the VM's, there was the ability to auto save. I have lost 2 -bigadv in the 90% range in the last week(one was my fault for tampering with mem timings:banghead:)

    well it's really what your budget is... 2k is still helping the cause but if you can get better cards with better PPD's(production) then go that route... the point is to do all you can without having to eat ramen noodle soup lul:)
