    Yea, I have an 8800GTS G92 and you'll only get another 400-500 ppd before you top out with max overclocks. Sometimes you have to go with what is tolerable.

    yes, you will want a 64 bit os, vista seems to be best for gpu2 tho as it uses lots more cpu in xp.

    great pick on gpu, clock the shader and they can get 5k each if your cpu can feed them quick enough.

    XP/Vista 32 only have a max address of 4GB, between system components, RAM, things like VGA cards...go Vista x64 imo. The GPU2 client works great, uses very little CPU, which is great when going SMP folding also.

    That's cool you're willing to drop that kind of cash for folding, I may get my old P4/DDR/AGP rig up and going again eventually. Keep us posted if you decide to go for it!

    my GT runs about 56-63c with fan on 100%. I know shaders give the most boost but i messed around with the core and mem and it DID give higher ppd when upping them too.

    The core needs to feed the shaders. I always max out the core before o/clocking the shaders. That way I'm not bottlenecking the shaders.;)

    i max the shaders then core and i haven't had any problem with it. but i did see that higher shaders give you more PPD then upping the core

    We have a busy week coming up. Looks like we will pick up 3-4 spots this week. I have decided to go forward with the 4xGPU rig. Should have it running by end of next week. Currently I am averaging 16,700 PPD accoriding to Fahmon. Everyone keep folding and lets keep up the momentum!!!

    if i picked up another 9800gtx could i fold with it in my rig that has a 4870 in it also? because this 4870 sux for folding my 9600gt destroys it in ppd. like 2000ppd for the 4870 and 4000ppd on the 9600gt.

    Well, looks like I can't get the SMP client up and running. Any time I try to run it, it just says it can't write the local files and dies. It works fine in non-SMP mode though.

    Looks like I will be taking a break from folding for a while until Standford gets their shit together on the SMP clients.

    I don't know if this can be done. I know you can force the GPU2 client to run on GPU#1 which would be your second PCI-E slot. You may not be able to run both cards at the same time. I will look into this....

    PS ...9800GTX should pull down 6000+ ppd overclocked. I would save the 4870 for gaming and just fold with the 9800GTX. Someday the ATI drivers will mature and the 4870 will be a folding machine.

    That's a mighty fine average you have there. Your 4xgpu rig is gonna be a folding beast :rockout: It seems to be good timing as our daily average has declined somewhat :( I'm betting that hot summer months take their toll on folding output levels everywhere. I can think of a few reasons why so there must be many more ...

    We are still progressing up the rankings nicely :toast:
    Let's keep up with the efforts we can :rockout:

    Buck Nasty, you should pm Solaris, he put the first multigpu folding instructions together so he may have some info for you.

    I had the same prob at first, i reinstalled to the 6.22 MPICH version in a folder on my desktop and the prob dissappeared. I also ran the install as admin. The deino version wouldn'tfunction for me. Hope this helps.

    I am going to be moving this week and i am not going to have F@H running for about a week after i move so that isn't going to help me. also the X4 isn't going to be folding anymore after i move.So it is just going to be my X2 and the 8800GT MAYBE the P3 and P4.

    Good Luck with the move and get those rigs back up soon. I would just throw some cheap 8800 cards into any empty PCI slots you have and forgo CPU folding. Thats where the point are, you know....

    well i only have 1 rig that has a PSU that can power a 8800 card and that is the one i am using.does a 8600GT fold? If it does fold i may put it in a rig that has a lower power PSU

    i know the GPU gives you alot of PPD. I would like to get a SLI board and get a 2nd 8800GT that would give me good ppd

    Yes, all 8000 series cards can GPU fold.

    Project 5008
    1320.76PPD for the 8600GT


    Try o/clocking that card too. I see some 8600gt's get 1800-2000 ppd. Not a bad addition to the farm...

    after i move i think i will break out the 8600gt and give it a try. I don't even know if it works... :laugh:don't worry i will rig up some cooling for it and overclock it. I don't care if it overheats because the 8600 is cheap.

    my secondary folding rig is running an xfx 8600gt. i use a pencils mods and it's clocks atm are 775/1912/860. it averages 2300-2600 ppd with xp32

    edit: i just realized that with my messing around I forgot to clock the gpu back up. It's now running at 875/1912/860 ... ppd should go up a lil

    this is one of the better benches/wu's for my 8600gt @775/1912/860

    I can get the client to run in SMP mode, but I can't get the service to work. I need it to run as a service. Any time the service tries to start, it just hangs.

    Edit: Nevermind, I think I got is sorted out. For some reason the user credentials I set in the service options didn't stick.

    Arrgghh..... Well, I come home tonite to find both rigs idling. Seems we had a little anomaly known as a power outage today:wtf:. Luckily it was late in the afternoon and I only lost 2 Hrs of folding(there goes my average). Looks like I'll be investing in a UPS....:shadedshu
