Haven't tried it with W7.

Were the rest of the variables set to the correct value, if so, pretty easy then.

Hope it helps your cards gain a few extra PPD, although I have given up on AMD GPU's for folding.

Still waiting for a new client to release the full potential of these cards.

I've been out of the loop for a while, do the GPU clients still utilise only a fraction of the power of ATI cards?

Please forgive my ignorance, I'm not new to F@H but I don't know how to install it to utilize both cores of the 5970. Is there a tutorial for that?

Here is how's to make one: How to make a Dummy VGA Dongle

If you plan on connecting 2 monitors to the card then you do not need a dummy plug.


1-14 CAV huh.......Used to be in 5-20 IN;)

Welcome back:toast:

I was there in 2003-2004 and again from 2006-2007.
I'm glad you returned home safe. I attended too many vigils for fallen Soldiers.

Actually if you hold tight for a bit Stamford are putting out V7 of F@H which is supposed to fix all the problems of running multiple GPU's and CPU's with just one program it's due out Q1 2011

yes Haven't we all I got so sick n tired of the fiddling round I stopped folding but once V.7 comes out I'll be right back on it with smp + 2x HD5770's

although I did find a proggy that purported itself as being able to do it, called FAH GPU Tracker V2 but it was a shit to use and only managed to get smp and 1xHD5770 at a time to actually work
