    Looks like you, Justin, and a few others got them too- Justin got nearly 30k for his! :toast:

    If you see one running please post a screenshot so we can see what it is ;)

    I don't understand why your Tahiti XT card is getting nearly 3x the PPD of my Tahiti LE---that seems like an unreasonably large gap...

    It's with the i7-3930k @ 4.5GHz; 16GB RAM, W7Pro x64. I don't remember the exact driver--13.something I believe.

    Do you mind turning your WCG CPU usage down to 11/12 (91.67%) briefly and seeing if your F@H client isn't being starved? I know the AMD F@H core takes like 1-2% of an 8 thread chip, but your PPD can go south if your F@H core is CPU starved.

    EDIT: Could also be because my 7970 is overclocked to 1150/1650 and your GPU could still be at stock unless you have overclocked it.

    I'll give that a shot tonight and see if it helps. I don't really want to lose a thread but I suppose it could be worthwhile...

    My HD7930 is at stock speeds--it already artifacts like this so I'm not going to push it...

    It artifacts at stock clocks? :wtf:

    Regular Pitcairn 7870s get around 50-55K, so maybe your card is borked. Do you have the 7950 on hand or is that being used for something else?

    Running in the i3 the HD7950 was artifacting like crazy---like as soon as it booted to the point that the computer was unusable. Even with a 550w PSU. I need to try it in my 3770k system but just haven't had the time yet.

    And the HD7930 doesn't artifact badly--just little bits here and there. Only seems to happen when folding--not even games.

    Is this okay? I've got a 8900 thingy-ma-jig as well.

    PC been folding with a Titan clocked at 1100MHz for past ten hours. Unfortunately, after my tea I may be playing BF3 and the science has to stop. :laugh:

    That looks real good considering a 7970 only does about 110K PPD. Sounds like it's working. :toast:

    Does not look like you have a Passkey set up, as your only getting base points. Go to the below link and set up your Passkey. Remember to update the client with the info.

    Well, going to run my 260s to July 1, and I'm putting them down. I need fermi or higher cards after that. Probably won't quite hit my 20mil goal, but I can do that starting in the fall. Again, any offers on folding cards over the next few months will be appreciated. Just doing what I can do....

    Hey Team,

    Looks like the GTX 580's will be down until the cooler weather :(

    Just got an e-mail from the volunteer hosting the rig at her business and apparently with the start of summer heat/humidity, the rig has overpowered her AC system so I had her shut it down.

    I'll be picking up that rig and dropping off another rig that runs cooler tomorrow and may leave the 7770 that's in it atm to continue folding for the Team.

    Anyone have any experience running 580's in warmer weather? I may have access to power/internet at another site but there's no AC there :eek:

    If they run hot already even with the A/C, good luck. :eek:

    Speaking of heat, it's 80F inside the office and the bays are 100F. I'm surprised the 2 ton central and 1.25 ton window A/Cs are keeping up that well with an office completely surrounded by 100F air and containing about 3kW worth of equipment inside. The air coming out of the central is only 50F so it's struggling to keep up.

    Yes sir- Florida is tough for heat

    The 580's both run at 65-70C and they overpowered an old 20k btu window type unit... I knew I had an issue when she mentioned that the 70 yr old man that helps out answering the phone, who's always cold, was in a Tee shirt and sweating :laugh:

    The only way I could run them is to switch them to water and put an external radiator outside, which is not happening :ohwell:

    well I just wanted to poke my head back in and say hello. I am back folding but only light to medium duty atm because I am on a laptop doing it. New Samsung with an i7 and GTX650. So hello and I am back folding for now again. ;)

    So glad I live in the SF Bay Area. No heat and we call the humidity "fog". ;)

    Fired up one of my 7870's about an hour ago and its output looks like it will match the GTX 580 on the Core 17 jobs (est. at 43k ppd atm) and at around half of the 580's power usage

    Can't wait to setup the w/c'd 7970 this weekend to see what that will do :cool:

    *EDIT- make that an est. 51k ppd and still rising a bit....

    7970 will do 100-115K easy when overclocked.
