    Arrg, I'm sorry it's not until next week... it's still devastating enough! My 50th didn't bother me, but this 51st is kicking my butt. I've been very bitchy in other forums..... less than a week away and I'm in my 2nd half of my century.... and it's a fault of mine, I don't really know how to lie... god I'm sad.
    Edit: looks like I'm buying a 2gb stick of ddr3 ram for a disabled buddy as well, and it turns out I must replace 2 exhaust fans on my case too... oh well, another month of going to the food bank!

    Gonna be a great day for the team. Just uploaded 350K. My second WU of the day is a P8102(my first one) and is currently running with a PPD of 715K. Todays points should be 750K and if these P8102's continue, tomorrow will be 830K points. This is a pretty good start to the weekend.:clap:

    Linux, it is dedicated. But i don't know why, i woke up this morning to find that it wasn't connected to internet anymore... I'll try to fix that today...

    That's the place i bought my sr-2 setup. I gave them a couple million ppd.

    They are oced to 910 core. And tops at 43-44 c under full load... Watercooling FTW!

    I just sold my gtx 470 because it just cannot compete with gtx 460 noise and HEAT wise (even when watercooled, the 470 add SO much more heat to the loop, i had to lower my cpu oc...). 2-3 k more ppd, but man those are hot cards!

    Entirely reasonable I'd say.
    I'm rather impressed that you can get 910MHz core out of yours. Mine top out (at least FAH stable) at 850MHz. I tried pushing them up to even 860 last night and something went wrong and they reverted back to stock speeds. Oh well, at least at 850MHz they're still fast.

    I totally understand choosing to sell that GTX470. The heat and noise output is phenomenal (and not in a good way) :shadedshu

    What sort of PPD did you get on the 5757pt and 2510pt WUs with it?

    768 versions seems to clock way higher than 1gb ones. I'm using 1,087v and tried up to 1,212v, but even 920 wasn't stable. The MSI cyclone is just awesome! And from my experience, the vrm temps is the limiting factor when ocing.

    The 470 did 20k most of the time, iirc.

    Ahh, interesting. Both of my cards are the 1GB versions, and both are at stock speeds (I don't know if the PNY cards support voltage adjustment. Something to look in to).

    Awesome, that's what I was counting on. So far the GTX470 is doing about 20-25% higher PPD than the GTX460s are. If I can start to get the higher-yield WUs that would put me at just over 50k across all three cards :)

    What? 460's @ stock clocks. That's almost criminal! Those shaders don't start breathing until they get to 1800+.

    I'm an idiot, I meant to say that they're both at stock voltage. I have the GTX470 undervolted a tad, but I was unsure if the GTX460s supported that. They're both running at 848MHz core (as per my signature). I can't imagine why I said that :wtf::shadedshu


    OCing them to 848MHz vs 675 gives an extra ~1.8-2.5k PPD/card (depending on WU), certainly nothing to dismiss :)

    850 MHz on air is not bad actually...

    I have mine at 825MHz. TBH, the 2 cards I tested would crash games at 850MHz even with a few extra voltage steps, so I just went with 825 @ stock voltage on all 4 cards and called it a day. Even that is still 150MHz over the stock 675MHz core the GTX 460s came out with. I also have 150MHz OCs on my GF100 cards.

    I'd say particularly not bad for stock cooling as well. Temps are in the upper 60s to upper 70s depending on what I keep the fan speed at. I haven't actually played games on these cards much, I primarily game on the HD4000 in my laptop so I don't have to suspend FAH :rolleyes:

    I kinda wish that F@H had a "suspend when PC is in use" feature like WCG. I know F@H Tracker v2 had some stuff like that but I can't tell you how much I forget to either suspend or resume folding on my 7950 (not that it produces much anyway, a GTS 450 beats it). Then again, WCG's "suspend above certain CPU usage" is flawed and I can't use it without it trying to run at every possible moment the CPU usage goes down in the game.

    That would be a great feature. Particularly the GPU clients make the system sooo laggy.

    I've never had any issues with the WCG CPU client messing up games, the GPU client is absolutely problematic, but IMO that's to be expected. Although I haven't tried the "suspend above xx% CPU", I just let it run whenever the computers are on AC power.

    Picked up another P8102 WU. Looks like Sunday will be as good as today, if not better @ 830K!:rockout:

    That's what it's looking like as of now. Gotta watch the TPF on the current WU.

    Edit: I will dump current WU @ 8AM EST Sunday and If I pick up another P8102, it will dump @ 10PM EST on Sunday for a total of 830-840K.:clap:

    Then it seems to be working:D. I say unload your current hardware and move up to 4P.

    So these WUs are taking ~14 hours each for 410-420k points each??? :eek: :rockout: :toast:
