    The board boots ok with one card in the first pci-e slot. Anything other than that (and believe me i've tried numerous cards and/or jumpers configuration) equals no boot. Hangs at B8 iirc.

    Did you try to plug in the 6 pin power for the pci express slots? Are the red lights on below each pci express slot?

    Each red led under the pci-e slot did light up when a card was installed. Did plug the other two 6 pin in addition to EPS 8 pin. A second or two of post, then it hangs. Tried stock clocks, 5 different cards. Each works fine alone in slot 1, add anyone into any other slot. Again, :banghead:

    There's a third 6 pin just above the first PC express slot, below and to the left of the CPU 8 and 6 pin connectors. That one is for the PC express slots. The red leds are always suppose to be on even without a card in, unless it's disabled.

    And I thought my SuperMicro H8QGL-IF+ mobo's were complicated. WTF, Is there enough 6-pins on that board?

    Has anyone been able to get a non fermi GPU to fold in the same rig as a fermi GPU?

    I have been trying but can't figure it out.
    I'm trying to fold on a gtx460 and a 8800gts g80

    According to Buck it doesn't work well. For that reason, I passed up a G92 card a couple months back...

    Thanks.
    Even if it doesn't work well, is it possible to do at all?

    He couldn't explain to me how to do it--so I can't really say.


    EDIT: I have the GTX470s up and folding P8057s :)

    G80 cards will not fold with GF100/GF104. I do not know why, but there is a conflict between the clients. It's one of those weird F@H things.

    thank you. Not the news i had wanted but thats okay. I guess thats what the empty slot in the E2140 rig is for :laugh:

    can a 8600GT GPU2 client fold with a gf100/gf104 or is it all nonfermi Nividia GPUs cant fold in the same system?

    I don't think that would work. It's all the same client for pre-Fermi cards.


    It's looking like GPU folding won't be something I can sustain when I'm actually in the dorm. With the fans on the GTX470s at 75%, they were both pushing nearly 110C. With the fans at 100%, it's a more manageable just-under-85C. But the noise of the fans like this is unbelievable.

    thats a disapointment...kinda but thats fine, I have a gtx465 thats on its way to me so no big deal..


    also i know its a gtx460 not a gtx470 but just to rub it in....(not sure why it shows GPU MHZ change,as they have been at 750 for 2 days stright now) also my actual fan speed doesn't show on there, as its controlled by a 3pin on the mobo but its running at 1200rpms and can't even hear it over my xiggy fan thats running ~1k rpm

    Thank you Buck for PMing me details on the QRB WUs the other day. I set up my P55 machine (running 3x 460s) and it's reading 130K PPD. One of the cards is working on a huge 16975pt 8057 WU while the other two are doing 2387pt 8054s. Didn't get to my other clients yet but I hope to get at least the other 470, 465 and 460 on the betas when I get my computers settled again.

    how are you getting so many points from a gtx460 jstn? I am only getting about 9k ppd from mine.

    I assume i am missing something i need to setup to get the WU's that you are gettting.
    Would you mind PMing me(you or anyone that can help) with details of the setup or a link to giving info on how to do it?

    Well, it looks like the 2 GTX470s pull about 150k PPD or so. A bit less than I was expecting, but still awesome. I managed to get in 3 WUs (~45k points) before either power was cut or the RAs unplugged everything (all of my remote rigs were off when I woke up this morning).

    I may have to break down and buy a 580 for a system or two.

    I added about 20 cores today to SMP. Will add another 12 next week.

    Check your logs to see if you're running 2.22. It sure sounds like you're running 2.25-my GTX460 is trouncing your GTX470-shouldn't happen.
