    Awesome! I just found a single slot 9800GTEE laying around- time to mod a 1x slot, and make a dummy plug!

    You should sell all the cards and set up a bigadv. It would give you the same PPD almost (40k) and save you electricity money.

    Finally - internet is back where I'm at. This country, and it is not Denmark, from time to time pull a Mubarak (cut all internet) when too much communication is unwanted. Anyways I have been informed that my WC parts are waiting for me so hopefully I can begin -bigadv on a second rig that currently is running a bit warm.

    Um, looks like the 912 and 925 point WU's are back:)(P109xx), but who knows for how long. I think it may have been triggered by server issues. Don't forget to increase your overclocks to take advantage of the PPD. After the P680X return, you will want to back the clocks down to avoid EUE's and 24hr Pausing.

    EDIT: Woot! GTS450 thinks it's a GTX460 again!!!

    K, I had to pull the second 9800 out, it caused a whole mess of heat issues, and failed WU's because of it- and the fan noise was amazingly loud. :(

    I might be willing to sell the 9800GTEE for cheap, I'm not sure yet.

    Depending on your overclock, it's between 4K and 6k based on the work unit you get.

    My GTX460 experience so far. I replaced an 8800GTS(512) that was reading 185 watts for the whole system while Folding. The GTX460 system, OC'd to 821 on the core reads the same wattage with the P68xx WU and 191 with the P109xx. My points for the day would be much higher if it hadn't taken this weird 3 hour break in the middle of the night.
    I woke up to my cards all working on their best PPD WU's, 353's on the G92's and a 925. There's a huge spike in the number of returned WU's in the last EOC update, which I think shows the effect of the 353's and the 9xx's.
    I think your problem is Folding with ATI GPU's, especially if you never set the environmental variables. (step 5 in the first post in Setting up GPU2 on ATI cards! and post 24 tells you where). Even with them set, I would recommend leaving one core available to handle the GPU(s). Try it with SMP -3.

    And of course, after I posted my 470 picked up a 1348 :laugh: 450 is still getting 925s for the time being.

    @ Buck Nasty :wtf:fuck me 4 to 6 K shit I never get that hell I don't even get 1K PPD even with an OC to 3.4GHz :confused::confused::confused:

    @ thebluebumblebee I do have the EV's set GPU's barely use maybe 1% CPU between them :( don't know what the frack is going on with my machine

    CPU temps = 99% 52/52/52/52 3GHZ and GPU temps= card1:60 card2:66 (shitty cooler)850/1200

    PPD= 618 ppd (CPU) and 2588 for each GPU @ stock clocks for all

    You should be using SMP2.

    Is anybody else getting these 6062 0r 481's on smp? I've gotten several of them the last few days and the points are terrible. They get done quick but only get about 2K per project on them. My 960 cpu has gotten several of them the last few days and it hurts my PPD by a bunch lately. They seem to be running out of bigadv WU's for the last week. Good thing is my cards have been getting a bunch of the old 925's & 912 WU's which are nice to see again easy 14K to 16K per WU. I say that and now I noticed that they are getting the 6800's now. Sometime last night they had about a 3 hour pause in getting any kind of WU's. Now they seem to be doing ok.

    Athlonite, I had the same problem last year with my SMP, i don't know what i changed apart from installing 64bit Win7. You could try using FAH tracker?

    Yes mine is about the same they get done quick but you take a big hit in PPD.

    Mine is doing a 6062 now for 481 or 8.5K PPD. The time takes less than 5min to do between % so it goes quick.

    Are you running the -smp flag and a passkey from Stanford?

    yup same Passkey username and machine ID

    I tried FAH Tracker V2:shadedshu it wouldn't setup my two video cards and SMP2 properly it'd run 1 GPU + smp or 2 GPU no smp or just smp and no GPU's.. I could never manage to get all 3 to work at once, currently I use GPU3 v6.32 x 2 and SMP 2 v6.30 which all seems to work together just not as well with SMP WU

    actually no I don't I fold for guru3d (hsss the enemy) but that's who I started folding with a few years ago and just never bothered to change teams but I find getting answers to squirly questions isn't their thing and I'm here more often than there so thought I'd ask here
