Picked up another K9A2 Platinum/8800GTS 512/CPU/Ram thanks to Kane22's generous offer. Looks like another naked rig with 3-4 double slot GPU'S coming online next week:rockout:. Anyone looking to get rid of a 700w+ PSU (that's 80+ certified)!
I'm currently running my K9A2 Platinum/9800GTX+ with a vintage:eek: PSU but I'm looking for that 700w+ PSU that has have at least 6 6-pin power connectors. The Corsair CMPSU-850HX 850W PSU is currently at the top of my list. I have a 1000HX in another rig so I would steal one of those if the price was right. I've got to get it by the time I turn my AC off!

I apologize if my ouput is low recently, I'm rebuilding my computer, and I've never owned an intel system before, so it's a huge learning curve! And I'm installing my 2nd os in 2 days, so much installing!

The PSU arrives tomorrow. So this is what I'll have at that time...

MSI K9A2 Platinum
Phenom 9950
G.SKILL 2 x 2GB DDR2 1066
NZXT PP800 800W PSU
(1) XFX 9800 GTX+ (2x6-pin)
(2) Galaxy GTS 250 (2x6-pin each)
Windows XP

Any 4th video card is undecided. Any ideas?

On the motherboard there's an ATX 12V Power Connector (1x4-pin) (not the 2x2-pin) that is used to provide power to the graphics card. I've currently got a 4-pin install but do I need to use this connector?

I may have to back off slightly after today, I have to pull my air conditioner or else pay for another month, can't really afford it, and our high temps will stop very soon. Usually after the first week of Sept, daytime temps get much lower, and nightime temps are quite cool, so I'll fire up this cpu too hopefully. Even with my little air conditioner, ambient temps in the daytime can be 80f+ in this apt, so fall is welcome!

Loving this new intel system. Been benchmarking all day, testing out games, and I still spat out 10.2k points! Haven't even got the cpu folding or crunching yet. Can't wait for our cooldown!

Wow the 280 puts out 10k PPD? I came across a good deal on a 275 but missed out on it. Still looking though!

This is a status update.:( At this time I haven't been able to to get more that one card to fold. I've got two rigs running two cards under Windows 7 so I have some success. I've got a dummy vga adapter on each of the GTS 250 cards. I'm following the instructions from the thread 'HOW TO: Set up two nvidia clients' and using XP console app.

All three graphics cards are recognized in the device manager. I'm using the 190.38 XP driver. I used -gpu 0, -gpu 1, -gpu 2 for each card.

The first gpu starts and runs correctly but when I click on the shortcut for the second card I get this error message:
At present your GPU is not supported or you need a current driver.
You may wish to consider running our standard client,
which you can download at folding.stanford.edu.

The third gpu also gives me the same error message. What am I doing wrong?

Have you:
  1. disabled SLI
  2. extended your desktop to all 3 cards
  3. assigned different machine ID's to each

I ran into the same problem trying to fold on a 8800GT and a 9600GSO using Windows Home Server, so I'll be interested to find out what your final solution is.

SLI was disabled and I hadn't got to the point of assigning IDs for the second and third GPUs. The solution was to extend your desktop.

Im having the same problem. Let me know if you get it figured out.
Right-clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties and Settings will bring up a dialog similar to this...


In the Display drop-down box select your GPU and then select the monitor attached to this GPU (in my case it's a dummy!). I then checked the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor. I was now able to set up the second and third GPU.

Unfortunately the third GPU was unstable once and locked up the second time so I don't know if this is the best solution.

I think I have mine figured out both start now. I had the same id number on each machine. so changed number to next number. You can change that at start in the systray window. Thanks to Mike taught me a new language:laugh:

Just to clarify, my gtx280 didn't produce 10k, it had help from my 9800gtx! But I've seen I think 5-6k from the 9800, so 10k could be possible. Wish I had a way to get seperate scores from the 2 machines. Had a scare this morning, checked my 9800 and it was running at 100c! It's fairly oced, and I hadn't checked the fan speed, put it back to 100% and temp dropped back down to 60c. Whew! Now I just have to figure out how to make this e8400 run 3.8 stable..... Edit: did a few more bios tweaks that I learned, now at 3.7 stable. 3.8 24/7 stable coming up!

OK, now I'm confused, again. I thought that the 9600GSO's to have were the 384/768MB, 96 shaders ones. Now Newegg is selling a 512MB, DDR3, 96 shaders for $35 after MIR! Not that I'm complaining, I just have to put the apples back in my cart.

I have seen the same thing. They have a crippled memory bus of only 128 bit and are missing 4 ROP's off of the core. Every review I have seen is not good at all. Stay away from that card.

Darn, this CO chip is walled at 3.6 24/7 stable, don't think I'll ever get over that for anything but benching. Oh well, still piles faster than my old athlon!

Hmmmm think ya might have to tweak it more. My e5200, e7200 and e8400 all crunch 24-7 at 4ghz. You bump your voltage any?
