    Currently, I am trying the new Nvidia GeForce 296.10 Driver with my GTX460, full package.

    This is in conjunction with F@H Beta 7.1.50.

    It appears to be Folding OK.

    It uses just about 100% of the GPU and creates a hugh amount of heat.

    I am running the fan at 75% and the heat is 65-66c. 70c or better and I get errors at stock speed/clocks.

    I can't really run a desktop at the same time. Web surfing and writing this is very hard.

    I'm probably going to take my home machine off of folding/crunching indefinitely. My room is getting way too hot again and that means the rig runs super loud as well. I still have 4 machines going at work with 2 460s, a 550 Ti, GT 220, 5770 and 6670, so I'll probably still be around 50K PPD. Once Ivy Bridge arrives, I may consider building a cheap Z68 or whatever system with a Pentium (if there are any 22nm ones coming out soon) so I can maybe buy another 460 to run. I have an addiction. :eek:

    Have our other monster producers lowered their production this week? Miss you Bogmali and Buck Nasty. :(

    This time of year Buck goes MTBiking and some times his HW get a break at the same time. Bogmali took his 2P to the crunching play ground. I my self will leave my two producers (CPU only) ON but they will be without supervision for some unknown time...

    LOl, no Mountain Biking this time. My company(ABC Supply Co Inc.) took us to Puerto Rico for this years Meeting. Still recuperating from all the Alcohol & Sun, but the rigs are powering up slowly. Should be at 100% by tonite. Attached is a pic of the view from my Hotel Room last week:D.

    Thought I would try out the newest Nvidia drivers- big mistake, dropping WUs left and right. Will revert back to 26x/27x drivers tomorrow.

    Were you getting large heat issues with the 296.10. All mine would overheat and crash unless gpu fan was 75% and I could keep card under 70c. Also, gpu ran at 99% and memory at just under half utilized.

    The 296.10 did work but I did not like the side effects.

    Same here. I ended up dropping my O/C and raising the fan speeds. Still sticking with the new drivers and I have even noticed a few more PPD.

    So it looks as though I will be able to continue to fold, but not as seriously as before, no more 50-60k PPD, more like 20-30k PPD. But for the moment I am back-ish.

    Happy happy, joy, joy! I have a multi terabyte backup problem that just got solved. Found a brand new 12x lg bluray burner for 85can and spindles of 6x 20 disc bluray bd-rs for 25can apiece. Got a terabyte of backup on hard copy, I'm happy! I'll fit in my last card and fold for the night.

    Well, it looks like in the end my 15amp service finishes me off. All I can do is wait for used 570s at the most. Who da thunk being poor would impact being able to fold? I'll still spit some out from time to time, but until I can replace all my cards with better, I can't afford to fold. I will get some ppd out tonight tho......
