    EDIT: Nevermind, it has decided to work again on a different computer. No idea why it no longer works at all in a PC it ran in a few months ago, maybe the board or PSU has an issue or something.

    EDIT2: Same deal on the other computer now. Guess it might be fried.

    I think my GTX 470 might be dead. First mistake was leaving it on my desk for 2 days unbagged, second mistake was my dad probably picking it up and looking at it, and now it's giving me a Code 43 in Device Manager. Going to swap it around with my GTX 465 in the same system but I don't have my hopes up.

    Sadly ppd/w is awful. :shadedshu

    On the other hand, ppd/$ is really not that bad, so why not?:cool:

    Im running 2.22 on both my 470s but i believe it has to do more with the core speed. Mine are at 675 core and getting 160k. Ill bet your 460s are clocked much higher so more ppd for you.

    I'm sorry to hear about that. My GTX470s are wicked fast cards--although the heat, noise, and power usage is unbelievable :ohwell:

    Are you going to pick up another one, or something different?

    I run all the cards in my sig along with 11 various desktops and 3 laptops, and power isn't much of an issue. Sucks losing another used card that I paid $90 for just a few months ago, and I lost a $100 used 460 a few months ago as well. I've been really picky about picking up the last few NVIDIA cards I have because I could have been better off getting one of those $200 GTX 480s new instead of having $190 worth of paperweights. Not to diss the used market for cards as there are some great people I have dealt with this year and their cards are in excellent shape, but I guess these are risks you take when buying used.

    I think I'm going to hold off on buying more cards as I have invested so much money in this stuff and I am "broke" so I'm not buying any more stuff for a while. Going to keep going 100% on what still works though.

    Looks like those 570s are still holding their value really well, judging from the $250-300 they still go for on Newegg.

    Damn woke up to 2 stuck machines both said core outdated. Had to uninstall client and reinstall now folding again but confused on what that meant. Going on vacation for a week so hopefully they stay folding.

    Those are the P762x's which demand the 2.25 core. All 4 of my cards are working on them and I'm down 30K PPD.

    Buck, your inbox is full.

    So i'm not the one who's a lottle pissed of at the 5187 pts units...

    And in a more general context, keeping Fahcontrol using the 2.22 core is quite painful if you ask me. I have to constantly reset and uninstall the program to keep getting 5757, 2387 and 8057, which all could be considered -advmethods units (at least according to gpu tracker). I did try to let them fold seeing a 880 mhz gtx 460 getting 9300 ppd is just unacceptable...

    Are there any beta wus for the 6xx series? If they are going to back off on those for fermi, I might hold out for a 680. Then 660tis for the folding box....

    My 660ti has been getting them for a while now. It's getting around 130K PPD on a very, very light OC.

    Supermicro rig updates:

    Cpus and the 850w psu are in town, mobo is in new york, and all the others components (save graphic cards) are coming from vancouver to quebec city. That's 5000 km and it's been 2 days since it left vancouver, so i should get them next week.

    Sadly i don't have tracking for the two evga 2win cards, so they're the only part i don't know how far they're from here.

    I look forward to seeing that rig run Feanor!

    Wow, we laid down 3 million points yesterday. Way to fold guy's! :clap:

    Locked down the GTX560ti 448 core, so should have it in the next week.:rockout: I'm away for the holiday and I can see that my GTX460 is running Fahcore15 2.25, so will not be able to change it until Sunday night. Monday I will have at least another 150K ppd online. Hopefully the 4P rigs will continue their streak of P8102's as well.

    Keep on folding brothers!!!!!!!

    That's awesome! :toast:

    It's also why I suggest running Teamviewer on your rigs for easy remote access :toast:

    I noticed you've had some 0pt WUs recently--has something gone wrong?

    I was trying to shake a couple of P7xxx wu's. Don't normally try to do that, but was going out of town and did not want the 2.25 core on the rig at the time. Didn't matter, as I ended up with a P7xxx less than 36 hrs later:shadedshu.

    My straight 2.22 using time record stands at 5 wus, so 20 hours. :banghead:

    I'm re-installing FAHControl at this very moment:cry:...
