    F@H make a damn good OC tester if it survives an SMP2 WU it'll likely survive anything else you throw at it with ease so I'd say back the OC off a wee bit and try it again

    only the first 10 WU's are low pointers if you've got an Passkey use it and after the first 10 WU's you'll get bonus points for early completion

    @ thebluebumblebee....100% when I have it use all 4 cores. it drops to 45% when I drop to two. However, as I said I dont see a point to use the SMP when you get so few points comparatively to the GPU.

    @Athlonite...I suppose I could do that. However, what kind of PPD is a PhIIX4 of my calibre really going to provide? When I am getting 36K PPD with my GPU, is SMP really worth it? I am not deriding SMP I am just wondering. What is the Passkey for? I thought that was a anti-tampering tool.

    the Passkey is an anti tamper tool but it also qualifies you for bonus point eligibility to gain Bonus points for fast WU completion

    smp for me on my PIIx4 940 @ 3.41GHz gains me 1672 points along with several GPU WU's of 1835 a piece each

    Ok, how do I go about getting said passkey?

    What I'm asking is how much load on the cpu are you seeing from only the GPU clients. The new GPU client for ATI is supposed to put a big load on the CPU. That could hurt your SMP PPD.
    Passkey info. http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey

    You're not getting 36K PPD on your GPU's;)

    Thank you for clarifying that. :respect: and my gpu's bring all the boys to the yard.

    Oh and each gpu core_16 is using 25% CPU time.

    On it's own yes it does use quite a bit of CPU time mine use 25% each when no SMP is running but start up SMP and number falls to between 5 and 10 %

    @thebluebumblebee & hertz9753, I can tell you now that the support and community here is much better than Tom's...shame really because the community here is what drew me away from THG.

    So what suffers, the GPU PPD or the SMP PPD? Is it better to give SMP one less core?

    wee bit of both but at the end of the day it works out to more points all up

    each HD5770 no SMP gets between 6600 to 7000ppd, with smp each GPU makes 6200 to 6500ppd

    and not a heck of alot different for the SMP with or without GPU's running for me at anyrate maybe a minute or so TPF increase when running GPU's

    I only have one problem with the new V7 and core_16 and that is being they're OpenCL/MM wu's so why are they using CPU time at all other programs I have that use Ocl don't use any at all or if they do then it's only around 1~2% at most

    Any ideas on how to cool down this 8800GT of mine? I removed the shroud, took the fan off and stuffed one of these pci slot fans directly under it, but it actually raised the temp by a few degrees over the stock solution... right now running 83c loaded... too much for my tastes.

    Damn, it slow-roasted its way up to 89c. I don't feel safe running this thing at that temp...

    It wasn't exactly acceptable before either... I was kind of hoping someone had a dual slot cooler laying around that could fit it.

    Well, I'm trying for ppd in one hour for a personal best. I'd like to know if I could theoretically break 45k ppd.....Don't break out the 285s very often, but I'm curious.

    Hat, can you get like a house fan to blow onto the PC? Maybe that'll help...

    Got myself a GTX470 in a trade. I stopped folding because of electricity, but since I'll be housing this one in my work computer I'll be able to have it running 24/7. 11K is nowhere near my old 40K but rather that than nothing.

    Just waiting for the last WCG WU's to finish then I'll start a -bigadv test run this weekend with 2 Sandybridges :D

    Anyone else buzzing with a feeling we could win this CC? :rockout:

    Why didn't I think of that? Loads around 75c now, that's acceptable.

    Hey hat, send me your addy and I'll send you an accelero s1 cooler for that card.

    Thanks for the offer, but it seems that cooler only cools the GPU... I'd have to way to cool the memory or power circuitry then.

    Zip tie a 120mm fan to it and that is all you need. I have a 8800gt with nothing on the mems or power circuit. Haven't folded with it for a while, but it has folded many wu's. Temps were always 60 or below for everything. I had 4 or 5 cards running this way, never a problem with them.

    Well, I suppose I may as well give it a shot.

    Since the beginning of March, 3 of my 4 G92's have had NOTHING but the 494's. Oddly, my 256MB 8800GT has done almost anything else during that time. (I'm wondering if it has to do with it only having 256MB VRAM?) Imagine my surprise and delight when I saw this today:

    That's good for almost 2000 PPD more!
