    Forget that, that should bump me up... a 43k egg! 5 days I'm 3 months smoke free after 40 years, how apropos....
    Edit, to be accurate, on the 28th I'll be tobacco free for 3 months after 40 years.
    Edit2: and yes, I feel much better, I can breathe better, I can climb hills better, I can taste better, I can smell better, it does make a huge difference!
    Edit3: heh, I jumped to 16th daily instantly! wow.....
    Edit4: and also, why did that wu say 17k, but give me 43k? Bah, lucky 480 I guess....

    My saga with 8018 goes on. Lost three of them since last night first 2 server didnt like results and dumped then this morning said unstable machine. If it said unstable owner Im ok with that but no way was the machine unstable.

    Don't you have the option to run something else on these GPUs? I now that beta is dead for now so I guess the answer is no. Strange that nobody have reported about problems with these WUs. 13001 all over here : 7970 - 105k, 7950 humps away doing 90k and the 280X does 125k so a slight improvement over the 8900s.

    Its my luck. All my new cards have 8018 atm we will see how they go if they fail Ill just shut down. Crazy wasting electricity on failing wu. Are you running a flag to get the 13000? I have had 2 on the 660 ti and thats all.

    The 13001 is a normal WU, so no flags here. I noticed that the base point for 13001 is now at 17123. It seems like the core 15 (like the 8018) is primarily handed out to NVidia.

    I'm crunching a 8018 on my GTX 770 and it's doing fine. Do you have any overclock at all on your card? (Even factory?)

    Yes I did but it was only 1223 core and that card will fold at 1293 that why i dont think it was the machine and it was on a 2600k that wasnt oced at all and a corsair 850 PS.

    Well good news since that last failure all so far have been good. Funny thing is its only the 6 series cards that fail. The 770 and the 2 Fermis have had no failures.

    Should of stuck out my 20 mil first time, this time I'm getting it, and within a week I hope, and then I'll find a way to get more cards to hit 30 mil....
    I fold purely for cancer research projects, and if just one works, it will be worth it....

    So the BA server decide to accept WUs again (Buck). Now we need something else than core 15 for the NVidia people (well you know who you are) and some cold weather in the F150 area. I will leave shortly for a business trip (+30 days) but will let my rigs run. Despite all the training my dog can't re-start a dual boot rig into Windows or dial down a too optimistic OC so I will lose a rig or two before I will return.

    Edit: I did order a riser connection for my second 7970 (long story, bad third slot on my UD7 and to high temp sitting 1-2) and a 860 W PSU which I think that I get before I leave so I might do +400k for as long as it least.

    If it wasn't for the short duration of GPU-WCG bliss I would have been in the same 8018 boat...get a decent AMD and fold where the work is done. I will even lend out my two 21k/80W 7700s if you pass by my place.

    Yeah, so I turn the rigs off after them sitting idle overnight. I'm thinking may Stanford will fix it by the end of the day. Turns out it was fixed as i was leaving for work, but was able to swing by the house and crank them up around noon. 527K today and 1.4M tomorrow.

    At this time, it's not working. https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=25887

    Edit: Every time Nvidia comes out with a new "family", there has been problems. Maxwell has the promise of great PPD/watt, but with only 640 shaders, that doesn't give it much grunt to power through these ever bigger WU's that are QRB based. Also note that, at this time, Nvidia GPU's put more load on the CPU than AMD GPU's when Folding. IMHO, the 750 Ti's are WAY over priced. I put a link up earlier to a 7850 for $110 after MIR, which uses ~115 watts. $50+ buys an awful lot of electricity.

    I know they work great as bitcoin mining cards, putting out about as much work as a 7850. Figured it might translate into folding too.

    Now I am back on with core 17 on my NVIDIA's. So is the rest of my team members. Got some 8018 to finish before all my NVIDIA`s are chewing core 17 ones again. [​IMG]

    Great

    My edit: That's more that can be said about my new riser for the extra 7970. Back order for some days.

    1:11 hour and 1:30 to my next two WUs not that it makes that much difference for my AMDs..

    I had gotten so frustrated with the P8018's that I had shut all of my Nvidia's down. Nice to see 7770 + 660 Ti=>100K instead of 40K.

    I so understand. When it went from 8900 to 11292 I went from 300k to 30k (if I let them run)

    @mx500torid , do you have a passkey issue? You got 12,000 points for 2 WU's in the last update. Or do we need to be looking much further south?

    After a long hiatus, I decided to give folding with my 7850 a try again. I downloaded the latest FAH client. Configured it, passkey and all. And lo and behold, it's working. Sort of.... PPD of 1678, TPF 2 hours and 26 minutes, completion in 10.17 DAYS! Project is a 13000. I've updated the AMD driver. No change. What am I doing wrong?

    Check GPUz and make sure OpenCL and DirectCompute are enabled- otherwise let it run awhile and see if improves.

    I get just under 20k ppd on a 7770 so you should be at least 50% over that ;)
