    Hmm, so my 480 could run those beta wus? I gotta hurry up and find a 2nd 480 so I can fold on this thing... even just one would make nice ppd!

    I would partially agree with blue: don't get anything less powerful than a gtx 460.

    The GF104/GF114 core are still the champion folder in my mind, ppd/w and ppd/$ they score top 2 iirc. Cheaper to buy and less power hungry than the gtx 580. For now the 580 may output some crazy numbers (though we don't know for sure), i would advise against buying base on those beta.

    Get what ever deal you can get your hands on: 200-250$ for a gtx 580, around 80-150 for gtx 460 to 560ti.

    If power is no object, then 4 slot filled with enough gt200 core can still give big points, and heat your house at the same time...

    Heh, I'm amazed at how much heat my 285s and xeon make. Fairly small apt, but only 9c outside and I have to leave a window open or it hits like 80f+ in here.....

    Dumping 3 WU's today for a total of 1.043 Million Points. Can you believe that I am missing a 4 unit dump by 4 mins(4th WU is set to upload @ 12:04 EST). It would have been nice to have 1.4 Million points today. Oh well, just more points for tomorrow...:toast:

    P.S. What up p_o_s_pc??????????

    Don't update the PS3, as they dropped F@H support on the last update.

    Wow, dam Buck.... I must get 2nd 480 to help... tried a single with the console client, and it was working, but crashed. Have to replace the 260, no way around it. I'd love me some beta gpu wu action!
    Edit: only way I'll even make a dent in that multi-cpu monstrosity....

    I think you'll dump the fourth. I've found that you can dump a WU a few minutes after the hour and EOC still counts it. I'm not sure if the long upload time with the bigadv WUs might be an issue--but with my GPUs I could dump 5 or 7 minutes after the hour and EOC would count it in that update :toast:

    The -bigadv WU's are 93mb, so it takes about 7 mins to upload with my network. No big deal, as I'll just settle for 1.054 Million tomorrow:laugh:.

    Well, then I think you'll probably miss it. It'll suck though, having two one million point days in a row :p


    I may be bringing my GTX460s back to WCG next week. They're comparatively slow for WCG, so depending on how well the HD7770 goes I could end up with ~13k PPD higher for WCG and both cards back on FAH :toast:

    Quite a bit of folding stuff for sale in my thread.

    And i missed the deadline last night on a 8101...:cry:

    I have to learn to wait for the wu to finish before ocing higher...:banghead:

    Was that on the SR-2 rig? Base credit is only about 22K, correct?

    I heard that the SR-2's are prone to losing their o/c on restart. Is that what's happening?

    Bogmali, is everything OK with you? I noticed your output has dropped off completely :(

    Sorry about that trouble Feanor--I hope you get it ironed out :toast:

    No. It takes forever to post (seriously 20-25 seconds before anything is displayed), but i never had to re-enter the settings.

    I just finally tried to up the memory multiplier from 8 to 10 (ddr-3 1648 to ddr3-2060) because i left it at 8 to remove ram from ocing. Now i'm sure the cpu's are ok with 206*18 (and i cannot try higher because stress testing in linux just sucks), i thought well why not. Ram at 2060, 11-11-11-30 timings and uncore running at 3502mhz. Ran a memtest pass (testing 24gb of ram is so much time consuming...) to check and everything is fine. Fired -bigadv, only to see the same 22:56 tpf as before. I'll see after a complete 8101 unit, it is kind of weird that a 25% oc on ram didn't net me any benefits...

    Agreed, I think most DC'ers are jumping on the HCC train. It's where the party is at:laugh:. We'll come back to F@H in 2 weeks.
