    Well this might should have gone to the technical section but here goes: I got a 280X that defaults at 1070 MHz and i want it to run in the same rig as a 7770 which I don't trust to run much more then that. MSI Afterburner (none of my GPUs is that brand) only lets me adjust the fan speed individually, not the core. Does any other tool let me adjust them as two individual GPUs? I will of course start out with both at 1070 MHz to have a base line so no urgency here but I can't really see a ASUS TOP run at stock in my household.

    Imagine what theputzer's PPD would be if he used a passkey.

    Do you know for a fact that he is not using one?

    No, just basing my assumption on points divided by WU's=6000.

    I finally got my 280X installed. I pulled one 7770 and left the other in. The strange thing is that both MSI Afterburner and GPU-Z see it only run at 550 MHz on the core and 575 MHz on the memory (roughly ½ of default) but my frametimes seems to be the same. The 280x does a frame in 3:53 @ 1070 MHz 10% in my first 8900 (108k minus upload time). My 7970 @1045 does it in 4:06 so they are faster. I will run a few and test its OC potential.

    Edit: I was wrong - the frametime for my 7770 have doubled. Strange. I will run this WU to the end and pull the card unless I can figure out how to get it back to normal 3D clock.
    Edit: Got it back to normal clock,

    I took my Asus 280x up a notch from stock 1070 MHz. At 1123 MHz it does around 115k PPD (minus upload time). The fan is running at 40% and the GPU temperature is 70 C. I do like the DirrectCU coolers but don't put two in the same box if you have air cooling on your CPU unless your have a fleet of fans to get rid of the heat.

    Edit: I cant remember I ever had this problem but if you are running two different kinds of GPU and you use MSI Afterburner one of the GPU could change its setting. I had a sudden drop in TPF and thought that I spent to much time on YouTube and hence ruined the #1 cards performance. It had changed from 1123 to 970 MHz without my interference.
    Edit again again: "It" did again. My 1132 fell to 970 MHz. Heat is not a problem. The problem is who to blame.....
    Edit: MSI is to be blamed. One GPU OC yes, two no if they are not identical. The 3.something beta is a a no-go. Back to basic- one GPU at stock.

    FYI: If you have a nearby Fry's store, they are selling the MSI Z77 Mpower for $89 on 12/26. Reviewed by cadaveca

    Edit: Add a 3770K for $222!

    I have been fairly happy with my other ASUS GPUs but this on - 280X DC2 is killing me. Yesterday I had some problems running two GPUs (this and a 7770) in the same rig. The OC just went away and I landed at 970 MHz (-100 MHz from stock). Since I was sure it wasn't a heat problem I wrote it down to MSI Afterburner. Today I installed ASUS own tool (MSI is out) and my second GPU (the 7770 was taken out) and ran it at 1150 MHz. I got some artifacts so I lowered it to 1120 MHz and again it went down to 970 MHz. I played around with ASUS Tweak and left at 1070 MHz (stock) and restarted the rig. It started up with 1183 and killed my folding job. Sorry ASUS you let me down........
    Edit: Removed all that had anything with NV... in its file name and managed to get an OC. Let's see if it will last.The artifacts came back as I was writing, not too optimistic.

    :oops: Found out that one of my systems didn't have my passkey. theputzer seems to be turning over 2 6000 point WU's every 6+ hours! My GTX 460's take 22 hours. What GPU completes the 8900 WU's in a little over 6 hours and what is the resulting PPD?

    mstenholm, sorry to hear that. I have some Asus 9600 GSO's, and in order to OC them, you have to use Asus's driver, 2 other software programs, and their OC'ing program. Asus seems to think that they are big enough that they can make their own rules. My distrust of Asus goes back to the Pentium MMX days.:laugh:

    I would guess a GTX 780/780 Ti or an R9 290/290X would do that and it should get around 30-35k points.... My 7970 does one in just over 6.5 hrs for around 29k pts

    Wish I still had the hardware to fold. Remember when I told you guys my mother's cancer was in remission? It came back, she has less than 3 months to live. Please god keep folding those of you who can!

    Cancer is a bitch. My mother is on her second kemo. All the best.

    The combination of ASUS Tweak, an ASUS GPU and me not touching anything worked. I had 24 hours of steady (modest) OC on my 280X. 1130 MHz does around 115K PPD including up/down-load time and that is on my daily rig (your know p00rn and U-tube and what else) ;)

    Edit: 1157 MHz was a no go (99 % completed and 2 seconds left when in reality is crashed at 42 %, restart of PC and it picked up from there).
    Yet another edit: The beta driver floating around (13.252 I think) prevented me from playing solitaire and make a Win7 performance test. I did not have a valid GPU (still the 280X). Back to that last none beta version solved that.

    Just so you guys know, I'm on an e-cigarette now. After 40 years of smoking, I am smoke free. I will never smoke another cigarette again. Anyone who is having trouble with quitting smoking, please research electronic cigarettes. It will save your life.

    And, I'm going to bring in the year tobacco free! I hope many will join me. It will reduce the cancer rate like crazy!

    Did it! 7 days tobacco free. And I love my eGo ecig more every day. Do folders a favour everywhere, if you smoke, get an ecig and stop using tobacco!

    FAH VM server down, sys admins notified
    January 2, 2014 by Vijay Pande ·
    A key FAH VM server is down, which means that stats updates are on hold (but points are still being kept on the WS’s, just not reported to the web site) and also the GPU AS is down. We will post an update when we know more. Unfortunately, Stanford is shutdown this week, so the sysadmins are on a reduced schedule, so the response time will be longer than normal.

    Yep, it's affecting -bigadv as well. I've been getting SMP WU's for the last few hours. Cuts my PPD in half.:cry: Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    May I make a suggestion?
    Looks like everything but the SMP servers are down. Time to get out the air compressor.

    My house is getting quiet.:fear:
