    I'm using nvidia cards, so i cannot help you with amd! I'm just using the -advmethods flag on mine.

    New Nvidia WHQL Driver Package 295.73 has caused 2 machine failures, GPU.

    Running Folding Beta 7.1.48.

    I am removing 3D Driver packages and going to try again.

    Will report back and edit post.

    EDIT

    Removing 3D package did not work.

    I am going to try and go back to previous Folding Beta and try new driver.

    EDIT

    Trying new combination of Folding Beta 7.1.43 and 295.73(complete package)

    EDIT

    Worked briefly then failed.

    Now trying 7.1.43 and 290.53

    GTX460 running hotter with new WUs; 60-65c was normal, now running 75c.

    EDIT

    Now working with 7.1.48 and 290.53.

    Increased heat with new WUs per F@H Forum.

    Had to increase GPU fan speed dramatically to keep up.

    Yes, I use the v7 folding client on all my machines, AMD or NVIDIA, and I use Extra slot options ("Expert View" Configure>Slots>gpu slot "edit">Add extra slot option:

    Name: client-type
    Value: advanced

    Your AMD GPUs should use F@H Core 0x16 with the advanced flag, otherwise they will use the legacy 0x11 core. Fermi GPUs use the 0x15 core if I remember correctly.

    Getting ~25k ppd on my 580 at 875c. Temp up 10-12C over normal 54C folding temps but ill take it for the 7k boost in ppd.

    Okay, arg, a rogue psu took out my 775 folder. So now I need a psu and a 775 mobo. Jeez. I need to learn patience... so Bogmali, if you could hold on to the tx650 or 750 for awhile, and if someone could drag up a 775 mobo and hang on to it, that will be my next purchase. This cheque is pretty much toast already, so I'll have to wait. Fixed incomes suck when you're trying to fold!

    When i read that some hours ago I read it as MHz, not degree C. I'm pretty sure that he has the temperature under control. Sadly my only GPU3 card has a toasted VRM. To late for RMA I think. It will go to the Hall of Fame of burnt out folding stuff (The one and only piece untill now I'm pleased to say).

    Question for you all: Does a GeForce GT 220 use GPU2 only or does it support GPU3? I currently run it with the V7 client and no flags, so it's doing GPU2 (0x11) at the moment.

    I'll pay 50+ for a used p5q or better mobo. And still need a psu. Just keep it in mind guys. I will pay.....
    I'm not good at the buy/sell forum, if there's a link, please just post it here and I'll pm the person from here.
    Edit: or just pm me, I'm duhhhh.....

    Yes, I'm guilty, so sue me. I've been using a 2mp camera for years. i saw a 12.1mp camera with 4x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. For $49. Then I saw a 8gb sdhc class 10 card for 7.99. Oh well....

    I received my used GTX 460 today, and after some initial testing I settled with 825c/2000mem @ 0.965v (stock vcore). I don't care to go any higher as the card appears to have been used greatly before and has brown PCB splotches under the VRM area like my ECS GT 440 card developed in less than a month (before I added a 120mm fan blowing on it), but I have confidence that this should continue to run fine with the mild 110MHz OC and stock voltage. I also forced the fan speed to 100%, which brought the core temp down from 72c to 60c and should reduce any additional stress on the card.

    GTX 460 reads 14.4K PPD and the 550 Ti reads ~9500 PPD. :)

    Anyone here who's folding 690x wu AND gpu folding?

    Looking for some numbers to compare to and i can't find someone with a setup like mine.

    While folding on 3 gtx 460, is 44 min TPF on a 6903 good or bad?

    Looks like it will equal to around 87k ppd for the cpu and 48k ppd for the gpus.

    15mil was a good run. Dealing with some financial issues atm. As always... I will be back!
    Edit: need to restock some parts, I got too low. Need psus, mobos ect. I'm poor, so I
    have to do this in stages......

    whys the 550Ti not showing CUDA in the screenie from GPUz also the 460 has nearly twice the shaders (460 = 336 vs 550Ti = 192) so it isn't any wonder why it's out performing the 550Ti

    My GT530 says it will need 22hrs to complete a single Beta WU (4kPPD) :eek: Think I should run it in 6-8hr stretches to make sure it doesn't pop? Its an OEM card with very minimal VRM phases and no VRM cooling (aside from hot exhaust from the cooler blowing over them).

    No idea. The 460 does show all the boxes checked, so I am not sure if it's just because there is no display attached to the 550 Ti or if the 460 being an original Fermi core makes any difference (that wouldn't make much sense though).

    I run my GT 440 nonstop, however after about 3 weeks the VRM area turned brown and I've had a 120mm fan on that card ever since. I would try to get a fan on it if possible because it seems like most NVIDIA boards have crappy VRMs that overheat and burn up the PCB if not cooled. Both the reference ECS GT 440 GDDR5 I bought new and the non-reference Gigabyte GTX 460 768 I got used off here have pretty bad PCB discoloration from hot chokes and MOSFETs. They still work properly and I take great care to keep them cool if they end up that way, as motherboards I've had that had discoloration usually died prematurely from overheating or high current draw.

    Anyways, I had some $$$ to burn, so I have an EVGA 01G-P3-1370-KR (original GTX 460 1GB/256bit) as well as a LEPA 900w and a Rosewill CAPSTONE-550w Gold-rated PSUs on the way. Almost fell for the $250 EVGA GTX 480 on Newegg but since my work environment varies from 72-85*F I figured that it would be too hot to sustain such a hot card with stock cooling. At least I have some decent PSUs on the way because my current Mushkin 800w and Corsair TX750 are going on 3 years now, and the rest of my PSUs are from scrapped Dells and such.

    Yessir:D Although I'm not sure if we are participating:(

    I'm in if we do;)

    Only have my i7-970 folding right now with a couple of GTX-460's so my output will decrease, everything else I shifted to WCG to see if I can dislodge some more peeps in the top 10 daily production:laugh:

    Chimp Challenge is still up in the air. I'm waiting to see the final rules/points system after all the captains vote. I will keep you updated.

    Cool, I am dedicated to WCG these days, but I'll still throw everything at the chimp :)

    Thanks. I had imagined they may want to change the rules again this year.

    Planning on doing another competition on the WCG side, what month would the Chimp challenge most likely be? Trying to make sure they don't coincide.

    The internet took a dump at work this afternoon for a while, but during that time I connected each rig with a USB wireless dongle and tethered it to my phone so that they could send/receive WUs. After several hours, the internet finally came back up. Hopefully it doesn't go down again, as I will miss a ton of WUs if that happens.

    I'm going to lose yet another of my old video cards. I need 480s to rebuild my farm. I could do 240 in a single payment for one at the end of the month if someone has it. And then I'll need another... I almost choked when I found out a 580 could do double what my i7 box + 3 gpus could do. I need to reconfigure my folding box, and make it more viable. I may also buy a camera, but that's another story......
