Meh, I'd rather your SR-2 get them. My rigs seem to do OK on the P8101's. It could be worse...
I agree on the 8102 having more of an impact on my ppd than yours. True cores does not behave like hyperthreading ones...
And yes it could be worse. You could only have a sr-2...
Now looking for both a GTX480 and a 1000w psu. Can get a brand new 480 for 199can. But need a psu too. C,mon, this is my silly xmas request! I want sli 480s... Shipping to Canada is easy, ask Buck, or Oily, or......
Shipping to Canada is only a little more work then shipping within the US. have to fill out a small customs sheet that basically has shippers addy and recivers addy then a description/value of each item. (sorry for any possible errors i made in the information as i haven't shipped anything out side of the US for ~2 years)
Point of it is, Its only a little worse. So people don't be put off from helping our Canadian friends in need of hardware because of it be international.
Johnspack, would you be interested in a corsair tx950?
Got my mini folding box up and running. A gtx 275 co-op and a gtx 295 (4 gpu2 clients) on a p8b75-m LE, along a celeron g540 and 4gb of ripjaws ddr3-1600 cl9 in an elite 370 case.
After 12 hours: 34k ppd, the cpu cannot run higher than 1066 memory eek, and it is loaded to 70% nutkick JUST RUNNING THE GPU CLIENTS!!!!
Just forget about smp...
And already lost a 2win: cannot display anything, from any output... Sent to RMA...
Wait---so your GTX275 CO-OP already died? That's a shame
not the co-op, one of my two evga gtx 460 2win.
Wow--so it died after less than two weeks?
My hunt for the elusive P8057 WU continues. Now following the directions in this thread @ [H] and should get something in the next couple of days. Already done the 2.22 core swap and humming along @ 15K ppd on a GTX460 768mb @ 860/1720/1840. I'll let you know as soon as I get one.
Make sure you DON'T have advance or advanced methods set.
All settings at stock unless directed otherwise in that thread @ [H].
1st WU after forcing the settings and I have a P8057. Currently pulling 72K(3:02 TPF) with just this little GTX460. If your folding a Fermi(Feanor!), you gotta get on this bandwagon.
Followed the guide Buck linked. Am i the only one who prefer gpu tracker over FAHcontrol? I found it way simplier and better looking than the v7.
I'll let you know when i catch one!
I also preferred Fahtracker over FahControl v7, but Fahtraker lacks the support we need for these Early Return WU's. I wish you luck with the P8057 my friend.
Playin with some O/C's and had the client up to 75K(2:56TPF), but that seems to be the limit for this GTX460. Was able to run 900/1800 core/shader @ 1.05V. Never was able to O/C that high with any other F@H WU's.
Feanor, How many GTX460's do you still have?
OK, what do I need to know?. Got FahControl set up passkey and all. Running 2.27. Should it be 2.20 and how to change?
I have one gtx 460 2win running ATM. The other one is out for rma .
Normal setup would be 2x 2win, so that would be 4 total Buck. The three other ones are sold.
Read the link Buck posted above.
Check out this tutorial. Pay attention to post#2 to swap the cores for better PPD.
Hey Buck did you add the "next-unit-percentage" slot option?
The guide at [H] wasn't telling to do so, but it is in the screenshots posted.
Use the OCN tutorial, it's more detailed. Just make sure that you edit the GPU slot(double click the client) and not create a new SMP slot like I did several times before figuring it out.
I made one extra SMP as well by mistake I guess. 12 SMP and uni running next to each other. Sigh.
The fahcore_15 was already there. Are there different versions? I didn't hit gold in my first try with my 680.
Edit: yes. Got the 2.27 as stated above.
2.22 is optimized for Fermi. 2.25 loses some of the Fermi optimizations but helps with Kepler. If you're F@H with Kepler, you want 2.25 or above.
You have a 680. Do not switch cores(you will need the default 2.25 for kepler). Make sure to "quit" the client and re-start to force the flags. I picked up a 8057 on my 2nd WU, so give it a little time. You may want to only run the GPU, but your TPF will only tell.
Quick Return Bonus PPD Database
Kepler/Fermi - my head is spinning. OK so I shouldn't have changed the 2.25 with the 2.20. That explain why it stopped folding.
Use the 2.22 core. That's the one for fermi. 2.25 and above are the new ones aimed at 600 series cards. Not that hard, but something more to monitor...
