    as long as i make top 10 im happy.

    i'm at 42 right now :D

    going up around 10 places a day, probably beacuse the GTX rig only folds 12 hours a day whereas the other 2 are 24/7

    Nice to see you around again BLB and i see you were talking about me... I may help you out with your cooling problem even if it is just a high CFM fan and some MX2 for now. May get you a ACF64 as a b-day gift

    Damn it's been a while since I've folded...I'm suprised that I only dropped 2 spots to 11th lol! I'll have to get the NV client on my 9600GT and see if it's decent...how would it compare to SMP on my Q6600 @ 3.6?

    Dunno if I'll do the AMD client on my G/F's x1950xtx or SMP on her e6300 @ 3.36...any recommendations there?

    I just started the NV client, I don't ever remember a client being processed that quickly lol! It's quoting me about 2.5 hrs for my first assignment...is that decent? Glad to be folding for TPU again! Looks like I have some Google research to do!

    That's odd, i just had a couple of issues with the 5.91 version, just a reboot and it was today after a week practically folding 18h per day, i think it was F@H fault though cause now i'm folding correctly again ... sorry for you man :\

    Keep testing :toast:

    I've just resumed folding with the GPU2 client on my 8800gts-640, but i'm getting a little frustrated with the speed it's churning out WU's in comparison to other lower-end cards (waiting for FahMon to work out the ppd again, just re-started folding). How much does overclocking the gpu help because i've noticed the gpu isn't getting very warm, and the cpu is 100% on one core leading me to believe it's cpu limited. Correct?

    I'm using the -forceasm flag, and in the config checked the advmethods box, and 'allow receipt of work units larger than 10mb'.

    cpu is clocked @ 3.5ghz for the moment, so should be enough. One thing that is annoying me is that the 'do NOT lock cores to specific cpu' isn't working. I have to manually set the affinity to both cpu cores every time it starts otherwise it is stuck on one core, which another application may decide to use.

    Any help appreciated!

    EDIT - Running GPU2 6.12 beta8, and 175.19 drivers

    F@H using the shaders of the GPU, so overclocking those will give you the best performance boost.

    My 8800GS, which has the same 96 shaders as your 8800GTS, was scoring ~4800 PPD but the shaders were clocked at 1780. If yours are clocked at 1620, you shouldn't be too far off. My E6600 is only at 3.0GHz, so your CPU shouldn't be holding you back.

    I have been running F@H all weekend and CPU temp is only core0-core1 33c-32c
    had the SMP and normal F@H both running the SMP hang at 24% but still kept using the CPU

    I'm running pretty good so far with the FAH GPU2...seams to be going along just fine...takes around 2.5-3hrs per assignment at this point, I did not choose the Over 10MB projects yet.

    Also downloaded the newer 6.03 (iirc) FAH x86 because I was reading the SMP doesn't support x64...it seems the x86 is using about 50% of cores 1 and 3...activity on 2 and 4 is around 25%...so we'll see what happens there.

    I have a HD 2100 folding right now but there is a AMD X2 4200+ in it too. Would that be a better folder?

    probably the cpu i think, a 2100 is waaaay underpowered. however if you fold on the card then the system remains more usable..... a bit of a trade up....

    I'm running three clients non stop on my e6750/9600gt. The gpu client with the priority increased via task manager ( have to change every reboot) The other two are non smp single core clients. As long as the gpu client has a higher priority, it'll take what it needs and leave the rest for the other two clients.:)

    My F@H SMP is failing these last days ... i think it's a BIOS issue (i'm using a beta one) ... if keeps failing i'll start folding with GPU + CPU single ... cause it's eating watts and it's not completing results.

    Anyway, keep folding team! :) :toast:

    Is it just me or does the F@H stats page seem to be updating a whole bunch in the past few days? Wonder if they're having server issues? Anyone else notice more than usual stats updating messages?:confused:
