    No, just the three GPUs going. I probably have 17k or 23k points still to come, but that's it.
    I need more GPUs :rolleyes:

    Good lord, I forgot how much heat a folding rig can make... it's at least 10-20c hotter in my apt right now. At least I don't have to bother turning on my heaters!

    Yeah, they're making too much heat right now, have to shut down the 285s until tonight. Temps are dropping outside quickly though. Once I get my 2nd 480, by then temps should be really good, and I can run 24/7. Here winter, here boy!
    Edit: sheesh, I'm already at 14th! Guess I have to help now, didn't realize you guys were that short....

    Just think what it's like having three Fermi cards and three overclocked quad core CPUs in a dorm room :eek:

    Heheh, ouch, yep that must be major heat output! I'm lucky that outside temps are dropping fast, so I'll be able to go 24/7 soon. Great white north and all....!
    Edit: hehe, already cooled down enough that I fired them back up... gotta love fall!

    I know I said I was not gonna run GPU's, but you know how that goes:laugh:. Cranking up some crunching rigs and I'll have empty slots. Already have a GTX460 folding and should have a GTX275 up later today. Every little bit helps!

    Awesome! I love my GPUs, the consistent points very nice. Heat output is amazing though :p

    If you decide to sell that GTX460... ;)

    LOL, I'm kinda regretting selling off the other 4 GTX-460's. I have a GTX260(216SP) that does not play nice with any other card whatsoever and a 8800GTS that I may throw in the mix as well.

    BTW, Pick up a P6901 on the 4P rig and will be dumping a total of 535K today(355K + 180K). Last dump might not show until midnight.

    Yeah, I was going to test fold my 480, but it and the 260 won't play nice, won't even start folding. Didn't realize that was going to be an issue!

    Haaa, the joy of trying to fold using GPU2 and GPU3 client at the same time...:banghead:

    Ah, that's why, didn't think about the different clients. Guess I could fold the 480 by itself then?

    Yeah Pete, The G200 cards and Fermi don't play well together. Best to isolate them.

    Well, at least the one I bought is folding. And it convinced me to get serious about FAH, so that's always a good thing :toast:

    If you end up not having a system to run those cards in, I'd be interested, I could run them in my i7-920 :toast:

    Darn, so far have tried both v7 client and fahtracker v2, and neither card will fold. Bummer!

    Hey Texbill, look what showed up on my front porch.

    [​IMG]

    I owe many thanks to Bogmali who helped with the purchase of these and shipping them to me. :toast:
    They're Folding right now with a couple of 8018's and getting 39,000 PPD! I did not expect a 10,000 PPD jump from my pair of 460's. They do run hot, however, with the warmest running at 90C.
    [Ion] and BUCK NASTY say thanks.

    Are they running in a case or naked? Consider using some 120mm spot fans? Congrats on the upgrade!

    That's amazing! :rockout:

    I think you may have been getting slightly low PPD on the GTX460s, on the P8018s I get ~32.5k PPD between the two.

    But 39k is great, I'm getting barely over 20k on an OCed GTX470

    Well, odd. Even with fahtracker2, I can't get the 480 to fold, at least not right, only goes to like 30% usage, and even then I'm not sure it's doing anything. It just does not like that 260 being there!

    Thanks. They're in a CM ATCS 840, a monstrous all aluminum case with 3 23 CM fans, 2 of which blow out and 1 in. I'm actually wondering if it's the air coming into the case that's hindering the card from cooling its self. These cards have what GB calls "parallel-inclined" fans that force most of the air toward the rear of the case. Those two 23 CM fans pull a lot of air through the expansion slots, so I am thinking that the air coming in "stuffs"(I'm watching football) the air trying to flow out the back of the card.

    I'm a scaredy-cat. I won't raise the voltage on a card to OC it. Therefore, I had the 460's running at, at the most, 780 MHz. Most recent Folding has been done at stock (715) or 750. And, I haven't even tried to OC the 560's yet.

    I don't over-volt my GTX460s, but they both do 848mhz core on stock voltage :toast:

    Nice upgrade! Are you running the fans on those gpu's with stock settings?

    Which Nvidia drivers are you using? I never went above 270.xx when folding gpu's. I will post a pic of my favorite Nvidia driver. It also works with my GTX 570. :)
