    Per your request.;) I would prob avg 25k ppd on the CPU if I wasn't gaming today. I should move this back over to dedicated folding and crank up the 880G/P-II 965 combo for gaming.

    What exactly is SMP? is the folding on the cpu? I use to run it but my rig didn't like it to much iirc. I mite try it again if it is the cpu since I've upgraded it since then.

    Yes, SMP is cpu folding. I've become very familiar with it! And it sucks due to low ppd. It's not really worth it. I'm going to break 15k, then probably shut down my cpu. It's not worth breaking a $1000 cpu over.....
    If you have a 12 thread cpu or better, and use bigadv, then it's worth it. Otherwise, don't bother, it's a waste of power, and money.

    So basically my PH II 940 wouldn't be worth it then I guess. Maybe if I get a better board and be able to oc it some, possibly?

    I have folded 3 6900's since the begining of December. I have been getting a lot of the 10136 wu's.:(

    it's always worth it SMP should run fine but like me don't expect a mountain of points on th PII x4 940 but the good thing is you wont need alot of CPU time to run an GPU slot aswell so you should be able to do fairly well on your system I was averaging around 14~15k on mine

    I agree, but the 7xxx WU's are giving me a fit right now. I cannot get more than 89% GPU usage regardless of CPU affinity or priority. PPD is only 8800 on GTX460's. I may have to delete them and hope for a different WU.

    What I've read over on the folding forum is that up until now the limiting factor was the GPU but with this WU something else is the limiting factor. My guess is they don't know. Still the PPD is lousy.

    More!
    I spotted this on the folding forum.

    Project #764x 80% GPU use solved?

    Notice the ? after solved! I'd like to see a GTX 680 using PCIe 3.0 motherboard.

    There are more threads on this subject on that forum.

    Thanks msgclb. I'll try a few other settings(memory, etc..) and see if that has any effect. If there is a PCI-e bus limitation, they need to adjust the points to compensate. This is what I dislike about Pande group and their radical changes. You simply cannot exceed the capacity of the donor systems without affecting morale.

    So, starting to plan for the CC, hoping to get some idea of numbers. What kind of PPD should I expect out of a 560Ti? And what's the minimum number of cores for bigadv these days?

    fairly reasonable PPD I would expect outta that 560Ti and bigadv = 8 cores min ie 8 actual cores or 4+4 HT threads

    Now you know what I was howling about. Reduced my PPD by 2/3's. The 285.62 driver does work with them better than the newer drivers.

    IIRC, someone with PCI-e 3.0 was having the same problem. There's a bug in Core_15 and they don't have a clue. And is underclocking your GPU to get higher utilization really a solution?
    560Ti PPD=13,000 +/- according to the WU's
    -bigadv now needs 16 threads!

    Nice to see you back Hertz! We missed you! You were one of my inspirations on the road to folding, it's why I've almost got 16mil points pumped out. You helped me to be able to do that, along with some others of course. Really good to see you back!

    The "WARNING:WU02:FS02:Detected clock skew, adjusting time estimates" statement is just what the client throws when the WU is getting done faster or slower than the client thought it would.

    Those first errors, though, appear to indicate that you had a WU expire in the beginning of the month????

    yeah left overs from when I stopped folding and before I updated to 7.1.52 don't worry about them I'm not

    the thing thats getting me now is somewhere I've finished 68 WU's GPU/SMP combined since wednesday 26th but EOC is only showing that i've done 7 so I'm missing a butt load of points

    BTW: The GTX 680 can work as two GPUs if you add it as gpu-index 0 and 1 it's running as gf:114 and gk:104 at 37-45k PPD

    Interesting!

    Edit: Just ordered a Asus (the triple slot one) but it is in back order. I will update later.

    Worth a shot.
    Anyone got an extra nvidia gpu layin around (that'll get pretty good ppd) they can donate to me to help with Chimp? I have an extra slot open. PM me to work something out.

    Why isn't there a Folders helping folders thread like over in wcg? JW.
