    Hmm, it appears to take me a lot longer to resume folding that than. It takes almost a full minute to or so... I don't know if it's related to hdd speeds or cpu speed, but there's a delay for me, at least compared to crunching. Obviously I'm new to this stuff, and I'm kind of comparing it to crunching since that's what I'm used to.

    I've had MSI AB open to monitor GPU load and temps, as well as judging the sound of the card itself.

    For instance, I just finished playing a game, but it seems to take a while before resuming the folding. It also begins to sound like the fan is revving up a bit later than I expected. not sure, but it looks and sounds like it takes a while to resume. It may just be me, it may be fine, just wondering.... Thanks for the help though :)

    Sometimes my 770 will take a good 3-5 minutes to "spool up." Never much longer though, usually shorter.

    I can relate ;) This week has been super hot and it's not going to get any better for a long while. However since I've only been running the one pc all week, it hasn't been too bad, but who knows what it'll be when I get my other one fixed up shortly.

    I'm lucky, the heat has been holding back here. But when it hits, I'll have to shut down my 480, it'll get too stupid hot......

    Even though I'm folding for cancer research, my biggest contribution to beating cancer will be the fact
    I will be tobacco free for 6 months on June 28th. Please quit smoking, and let smokers know about
    e cigarettes, and how they can save lives.

    Late last night I learned that if you do a gpu driver uninstall/reinstall, you lose whatever F@H work you were doing. Had I known that, I think I would have waited a little longer before losing hours of work :banghead:

    But it's all good :)

    Did you pause the work before changing the driver?

    I think I did... pretty sure I did but I can't be completely certain now. I think I stopped and closed down boinc and f@h before uninstalled to make it quicker.

    Ended up cranking up both servers. The heat is tough , but I keep the door to that room closed. Let's see how long I can hold out. LOL

    Got an offer for a 680, which I want with all my heart and soul! I have to give up my almost brand new 480, yes I found a brand new one with warranty on clearance a few months ago. Also got an offer on 2 750s as folding cards.... ug! Stupid fixed income. Want all, but really need the 680 for now, then folding cards. Do 750s produce more than 660s? Or equal?

    This is all we know on how maxwell perform. https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=25887&p=262368#p262368

    In non folding compute 750 ti's are similar to an amd 7870 by what I have read, but use less than 50 watts each.

    Good, good, it'll give me time to spring into action and overtake you without you even noticing. Jk:laugh:
