    Better keep an eye on it (unless it's a really good 350w unit or the rest of the system is lightweight), as my 7970 is reading 10A input @ 12.13v and my 7950s are reading 11.2A @ 11.6v (I tested this Mushkin PSU with a DMM and it really reads around 11.95v at the PCIe connectors, so I guess my Rosewill PSUs pull the 12v rail fairly high).

    Given the points I'm receiving, I'm pretty sure I'm not getting bonuses....but I am using a passkey. Any idea what may be wrong?

    One of my GTX470s is at 607MHz, the other is at 624.

    It's an alright one--an 80Plus Antec PSU. The rest of the system is just an i3-2100, a H77 board, and a single HDD. I will be swapping it to a 550w PSu when I have time.

    If you are doing anything else with that CPU, you will hurt the GPU's production. My previous post was intended to point out that these beta WU's on Nvidia require a thread (they say CPU) for each GPU. That basically rules out doing anything else with your 2core/4thread CPU while running these beta WU's. Hopefully, Nvidia will fix this. This is not an issue with AMD GPU's.

    Upgraded my troublesome 2600K rig from 13.2 beta3 to 13.5 beta2 and things seem better so far.

    Just leaving this here. :)

    Are you looking at the estimated credit or estimated PPD? The estimated credit on mine is about 6770.

    Well, this is pretty amazing. I have my GTX470s, GTX560TI448, HD7930, HD7950, and various G92 cards folding away. I'm getting ~75k PPD on the HD7950, ~50k on the HD7930, ~35k on the GTX560TI448, ~25k per GTX470, and then whatever the G92 cards do. Hopefully I'll be able to keep FAH on the HD7950 going for a while :toast:

    Ran out of gpu wus.... guess who's back! Does anyone know if it's possible to fold gpus and crunch a cpu on the same box?

    I'm doing this on my Xeon hex/GTX 580 rig so it's possible but am not sure if it's "optimal" ...doesn't seem to impact the folding done by the gpu's on my rig :)

    That's what I do on all of my systems :toast:
    FAH-GPU slows down WCG a bit, but IMO it's worth it ;)

    I'm seeing mention of beta wus... do they work on 2xx series? I have to try and remember how to apply the beta flag...

    Only Fermi and newer on Nvidia, HD 5000 and newer on AMD.

    My HD7930 has been folding away, but I'm having issues with either the HD7950 or the i3 system that it's in. I'm trying to resolve them.

    I had to put a 7950 on the X2 4400+/GF6150 system as my 2600K/Z68 Extreme4 Gen3/Mushkin XP-800AP 800w PSU system always freezes after 8-12 hours. Problem is, the board doesn't properly initialize the 7950 so I have to have the display hooked up to the onboard. I also can't write to the card's registers and can't check most of the vitals besides the voltages and current, but the card still folds albeit at a 20% PPD penalty. Still better than having a 200K PPD machine freeze all the time and killing my PPD, though. I may need to move some cards around and possibly get the Z77 Pro4-m in an ATX case so I can move the 7950s to that where they will properly cooperate with the UEFI.

    Is that the system that I sent to you? I'm having issues where my HD7950 rig locks up---I'm going to try a better PSU tomorrow to see if that is the issue. I can't think of what else it might be.

    Yeah, it is. I also tried a 7950 in my ancient ASRock 775XFire-VSTA and the system would endlessly turn on and off every few seconds, so I'm happy it works just barely enough in the HP board to be used for F@H. Removing one of the two 7950s from my ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 stopped it from freezing after 8-12 hours, so either my old Mushkin XP-800AP is getting weak or the board has some power delivery issues.

    I'm really glad Stanford got it together at the right time. A single HD 7950 on the beta units replaces my entire army of GTX 400 Fermi GPUs, so now I'm probably going to have sh!t luck selling them. Of course, nobody knows how long the 7663s will run or if similar WUs will exist in the future, but I completely enjoy my 400K+ PPD for the meantime.

    Don't worry about bringing a 4P rig over to WCG and losing tons of F@H points, Buck. Our WCG team needs all the CPUs it can get without GPU WUs at the moment, and I am already helping pick up a ton of points for the F@H team with my 3 HD 79xx GPUs. I'm sure we'll be alright. :)

    Anyone have a 7770 running the 7663 beta? My friend just got one and starting folding for the first time. What sort of PPD should he expect?

    I'm getting 10k ppd each from mine. Not too bad for an 85watt card :)

    Stock- 1Ghz

    The card is running nice and cool so a quick 100Mhz bump should be fine.... may try that later tonight

    I think we shall. Tomorrow after work I'm going to spend some time and see if I can't figure out the issues with my HD7950. These new bonus-enabled GPU WUs are awesome :D


    If you still have the Fermi cards come later this summer, I'm still interested. Three of them would do 50% higher PPD than all ~9 G92 cards ;)

    I'll keep them warm for ya. ;)

    That's actually around when I want to sell them, as we'll probably finally be moving to our new facility within a few months tops. I'm hoping to condense my farm down to just a few "heavy hitters" and finally put the old ones to rest in storage as backups. Right now I'm still running everything I got while I can, even if it is slow.

    I decide to quote this post of mine here:

    Although that value of 1.5 days can be alower estimate now (the quote is from yesterday, the "first" WU is now at 57% completion, despite the DistrRTGen GPU work still going on in BOINC). I might return to (once-in-a-while) folding on the GPU as long as there are no WCG GPU WUs and if it does not hinder my GPU work for POEM too much.

    I'm crunching for the Mothers day competition so I turned my 7850 back on to fold. Beta Units bring me to 55K PPD on one card (!), but then they run out and I go down to 5K PPD :(

    Oh well, we don't do this for the points... Right? RIGHT?
