    That will be awesome! :toast:

    If I can manage to contain the heat I'll get my GTX470s going on FAH at some point--can one of the experts give me an estimated PPD for them?

    My 470s get about 24000ppd at 750 core. Not an expert by a long shot but will give my 2 cents worth.

    As of right now I am only running 2 rigs:

    SR-2 #1: 2 X5680's @ 3.8Ghz and GTX-580
    SR-2 #2: 2 X5570's @ 3.5Ghz and 2 GTX-460's

    Come the contest and if I am still around locally (have an overseas gig in the works), I will fire up the i7-980 and i7-970 rigs to add to my output.

    Hey guys, I'm curious if anyone here has folded on any GTX 6xx GPUs recently and knows what PPD they get. I currently have 8 GTX 4xx GPUs and I was wondering how viable it is to trade in some of my Fermi GPUs for GTX 660 Ti cards. I looked at some F@H PPD charts, but I found the 35-40K PPD for a 660 Ti to be absurd when the chart also said that GTX 460s get 15-30K PPD and mine at 800/1900 get 12.5K on the 7662 WUs.

    TL;DR: Do GTX 660 Ti cards really get 35-40K PPD, and are they viable for the long term? Would be nice to reduce the amount of cards and power consumption while maintaining similar PPD. Any thoughts?

    My friend was on a drug similar to this, that they were testing out on humans. It work awesome and shrunk the tumor in his brain by 50% in 3 weeks of use. After 6 weeks, the tumor shrunk to 20% of it's original size. This was a good thing , but now on to the bad. He couldn't be exposed to sun light for more than 5 minutes without getting burned badly. Then he came down with pneumonia, and they had to take him off the pills or it would kill him. Sadly:cry:, 3 weeks after he stopped taking the pills he passed away. When he started taking the pills, they said he only had 2 to 3 weeks to live so he figured he'd give the pills a try. The pills gave him another 6 weeks of life. They are getting closer to finding a cure, but the side effects are what's slowing the process down. Either they kill you or the cancer does.

    Sorry to hear about your friend.

    I believe this is something new. Saw it on Fox News and posted on the Internet. No humans have been using this yet. Im hoping this works.

    So, I decided to pick up a Gigabyte GTX 660Ti to play with. Would be nice to see it get some decent PPD, but if it doesn't, it's not the worst purchase I have made. :roll:

    It's sad to see 2 GTX 460s getting supposedly the same PPD as my 470 (25K) so we'll see. I've wanted a new NVIDIA card to play with anyway so it's not like it will be a total loss. I figured I would try something new with hope that it is supported better in the long run vs. 2-3 year old Fermis that essentially got castrated last year when Core 2.25 was forced upon us. Plus, the power savings might be nice as well. I'll let you guys know how it does next week. :)

    I'm surprised that your GTX460s are doing so poorly--I got 14.5-15.5k PPD out of my GTX550TI before it died :(

    Welp, just checked my CPU on one of my dual GTX 460 machines and it's at 100% though both cards are still at 98-99% with some fluctuations. I don't know why these damn cards use so much CPU now, it's ridiculous. Also, my GTX 470 rig keeps powering off after about a day, and I don't know what's causing it either because the power settings are set to stay on all the time. I guess I'll have to swap CPUs with the 470 rig as my dual 460s rig appears to be bottlenecked now when it wasn't before with this 3400+.

    EDIT: So, these 0x17 folding cores appear to use an entire core of your CPU for each card regardless if it's an i7-3770K or Athlon 64 X2 4400+. Seems rather ridiculous.

    jstn7477, are they running core 17?

    edit: didn't see your edit. take the 460's off of beta - they'll get more ppd

    Windows is installing now and the rig should be folding tonight or tomorrow at the latest

    I may have a crap load of questions as I set this up so I apologize in advance if I'm too noob for you guys :eek:

    How much did you pay for those cards? I'm thinking of picking up a GTX580--most of them I see are ~$200. I'm curious to see how hot/loud you find them...

    Setting up FAH isn't all that daunting ;)

    If my GTX 660Ti somehow manages to get ~25-30K PPD, I may consider letting go of a pair of 460s for a nice price if you or someone may be interested. I just had another motherboard fail so now might be a good time for me to start consolidating things a bit. :)

    I usually just use whatever the newest non-beta drive is at the time--so that should be just fine ;)
    I'm looking to do some consolidation myself--those would help me get ride of my fleet of G92 cards (seven of them ATM). Just LMK :)

    I'll let you know if my plans with the 660Ti turn out as expected. All 4 cards are reference 768s, a pair of EVGAs flashed to 800/2000 @ 1.0v iirc, and I have an ASUS and a Sparkle that haven't been touched BIOS wise but I'd let them go a little cheaper since the Sparkle came with a busted shroud and bent PCB (works perfectly though). All cards have been folding at around 800-825MHz core and haven't been voltage abused at all by me. :rockout:

    Slowly putting all my stuff together for CC. I got a 460 2win from feanor that would not run under f@h v7, but runs great on fah tracker. Without betas, what's the difference?

    Right now, the 2win is putting out about 31k. Should have a 260 and a 460 to add to that.

    This may be the missing clue to my problems. The 7662 WUs keep making my Zotac card fritz out -locking the machine, creating errors in the WU so I don't get credit, and so on - even on stock settings. It also maybe because the 7662's use so much of the CPU and I'm only running a dual-core (E 8400). I'm going to let the current WU running on my good ol' EVGA complete, then I'll uninstall the beta and reinsert the Zotac.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Sad to hear your friend passed away. I do hope he's in a better place now...

    I just noticed that the folding badges have disappeared. When did that happen?

    The site probably went down or blocked us again. WCG badges disappear sometimes as well.
