Anyone know if an S1 rev2 will fit on a 9600GSO?
What is the difference between the GPU and the GPU2 app? Link?
The GPU client is old and obsolete. It was the first client that only ran on ATI cards when they started to utilize the graphics cards for folding. The GPU2 client will run on both NV and ATI cards and will run a wider range of work units, therefore producing more points per day.
Use the console version instead of the tray client since it's more reliable and more efficient
Well, a 9600GSO is a rebadged 8800GS, which is a crippled 8800GT. It fits a GT for certain. I did some searching and there are people who fit it to an 8800GS. Apparently XFX uses a different PCB layout so they're right out the window. But I wasn't able to find anyone who said they applied it to a 9600GSO.
Because I can't answer your question for certain, I'll also provide some alternatives that I know will work.
Not sure of availability / pricing in your area, but hopefully you can find one that works.
I am running the third one down... is this the correct one for me?:
Yep that's the one
K thanks! I seem to producing about ~3000 points a day. Does that sound about right for my 4850?
yea i get about the same. Highest i have hit is 4400ppd i think can't remember on what credit protein though.
PPD really fluctuates, but I'm not complaining, my card is pumping out the WU's just fine.
My 939/3700+ with a 4830 at 650/950 does 2640 on a 477.
Performance on the 4830 sounds pretty good for the price! Too bad a 9600GSO totally destroys even the best ATI cards at F@H.
Don't rub it in!
LULZ. GTX 285 and 940BE to be folding by the end of the week.
Is there times when its hard to get a new WU? 2 of my comps have been trying for over 2 hours .
I have an AC S1 rev1 that fit perfectly on a 9600GT, so I would assume a rev2 would fit just fine on your GSO! Take the card out and line up the holes with the back of the card to make sure!
I am sick of getting measly little 225 point WUs for my CPU! They take ages to process and they get me low points for the effort!
How do I get rid of them??
in the configuration choose "YES" for scientific ones.
are you using the smp client? if you you need to add -smp to the command line (don't do it where it asks you for additional peramaters when you actually configure the client, it doesn't work... at least not for me)
my phenom 9500 should be paid for by now.. expecting to get it probably within a week
Not using SMP, the deadlines were too soon for me as I'm not running 24/7. Good luck with that Phenom!
And I'll try doing what you suggested, solaris.
Well if you're not going to run SMP, don't even bother with the little guys. As you said, they take forever to process and are relatively low-point value and therefore low-worth/interest. The single core cpu client is rather old and primative... honestly I don't think it's worth running anymore.
Yes, but I can't run the SMP because by the time its done half to 2 thirds of a WU, the due date has already gone by! I'm not allowed to run my PC 24/7, otherwise I'd have a much higher PPD.
I've set it to do -advmethods, but now my client is not able to get work from the server! What is happening?
as I said do not worry about the cpu client. it's not worth it anymore
Its worth it when you consider my avarege PPD is less than 500 atm...
well that's just my way of seeing it. I see running the single core cpu client a waste if you can just run the gpu client.
Meh, came home to find 4 rigs down:shadedshu. Thus, my PPD will be half of normal. Might have been a power outage, but one rig has a corrupt OS install now. Seems like voodoo or something at work here Well, off to repair XP I go...
P.S. Great PPD guys. I never would have imagined 389k PPD in one day 6 months ago. You guy's ROCK!!!
