    Its a good time to sell off esp with temps up and prices dropping on X58/P55 hardware. Looking forward to see what you end up coming back with in the future.

    Bandwidth has little effect on F@H for GPU(I use x4 slots). We have seen issues with multi-GPU installs where the lowest PPD card affect the others. It's always best to try and keep similar cards together. I bet it's GPU3 and GPU2 conflicting.

    Found out that only 2 of my rigs stayed on the whole time we were gone for spring break. I'm back in town now so I'll get them back up today.

    Yep, that's why I mentioned it! All my hard work.... But... Thankyou Hordstuff, my new psu just arrived. I'll be firing up my 2nd folding box very shortly... and it continues.

    Interesting, this new psu has 4 20a rails, I had to split 2 rails to get my 260 to fire up. Is this normal?
    Edit: it's okay, got both cards running in it now, splitting rails is necessary!

    Yes, but only on the GTX2xx series. I bet the fan would not even spin, right? I have not had this problem yet on the GTX4xx series.

    Yep, it wouldn't power up at all. As soon as I split the rails, fired right up. Then I added 2nd card, fired right up! Installing windows on it right now.....

    this message is to confirm that EVGA has approved your RMA request

    My EVGA GTX 470 crapped out on me for good about a week ago. For the last few days I've been going through EVGA's RMA process and it was approved a few hours ago. I'm going to take it to the UPS store tomorrow.

    Wow, my new 750i mobo scared me, it wouldn't install network drivers, so I added a smc card, it wouldn't install that, finally, added a realtek card, it went online... phew. 2nd box up!!!
    Edit: very happy now, just fired up 2 more cards. Seems all is well!

    Okay, weird issue on my new i750 system, the 260 is folding away no problem, the 9800gtx is giving me a "At present your GPU is not suppported ect" anyone have any ideas?

    Well, no, the 9800gtx won't fold at all right now. So no point in monitoring it. Just not sure why it won't fire. Guess I have to get one more gtx260.
    Edit: it's odd, it has the driver installed, it shows in device manager, but won't fold.

    Did you extend the desktop to the new card, not sure if that is even needed now, but worth a shot.

    Guess I'll try the fahtracker app next. Extending desktop won't help, I run xp64 on my folding boxes, so that shouldn't be an issue. It's odd, because I have folding a 260 with my 9800gtx before with no issues.

    Good, and it seems like your current #1 rival is having a slow start. No offence mmaakk, I hope that you have a hex core -bigadv hidden and will unleash it mid May. Btw welcome mmaakk from a new folder.

    Yeah, I was worried about a ppd hit using the new client, but the 260 is pulling 7.7k and the 9800 is pulling just under 5k and both are still climbing. Seems to work just fine!
    Edit: on 494 pointers of course.
