My 9800gtx, what a trooper! It just keeps going. Best $320can I ever spent....
4 post in a row! damn you need to clam down or use the edit.
sorry to here about your loss. You ever think it maybe a PSU or something else? Its strange that 2 cards go in a row like that
Nope, my corsair tx750 is a champ. I currently have my 9800gtx running in it, works perfect. My system has never been more stable! I want to try a gtx285, I believe they are a fix over the 280s. And I've only killed 2 gtx280s! Heheh!
I'm down a few point's for the the day. I forgot to turn FAH back on after I did a microsoft update that required a restart. Two GTX 275's lost for close to a day.
Why don't you just add shortcuts to the F@H links to the startup folder? Otherwise I would forget at least every other time, so I did this
Looks like the stats pages are having issues connecting to the Stanford servers. We're all zero'd out for updates for the last 9 hours.
Got me a bit worried as well. Still missing some WU from the 11th. But it works now. Just got days work off two 1888 + one 878 in my acount.
I traded my 9600GT + $10 cash for my friend's 8800GT, and I really couldn't be happier:
I'm now getting about 4900-5200 PPD on 353pt WUs, which are taking about 1hr40mns per WU versus 2hr30mns on the 9600GT. This is all at stock, it already reaches 80C load at ~50% fan speed, so overclocking is not an option until I get an aftermarket cooler. The only other problem is the card squeals, is there any way to fix this?
Count me in for an additional ~1.5K PPD vs the Canucks
Unfortunately card squeal (choke whine) is something you are going to have to live with. If there is a solution Im all ears though.
anyone folding on the new 195.55 drivers experiencing the driver crashing and resetting when the WU's finish?
I am folding my 8800GT on them under windows 7 and haven't had a problem with that. I haven't tried on the GTS on XP yet.
The screenie that I showed you on your thread was running on those drivers
EDIT: Just checked, they're using 195.39
Im sort of wondering if between WU's my driver isnt reconfiguring SLI in the downtime, but its a crash of the drivers. First time running F@H with SLI active and no extra BS to make it work. I know I will have issues, I'm just trying to sort out if its SLI doing it or the beta drivers....geuss I got to pull a card and see
OK, I'll just do my best to ignore it then. It's not too bothersome at least
BTW I have the shader clocks up at 1612mhz, and it's netting ~400ppd more
I will be sending a GTX 260 in for a RMA on Monday or Tuesday. On the bright side my local Best Buy had a PNY 260 on sale for $175, they also had a 9800GTX+ 512mb for $109 and a 250GTS 1024mb for $129. I bought the 260.
nice.. so does that mean you will have 2 GTX 260's running when you get the other one from RMA?
No, it will be four GTX 260's. That leaves my 8800gt out of the picture since I only have six slots to work with and the other two have GTX 275's.
send it to me and i will fold on it (sadly i don't have the money to buy another one) I have 2 empty PCI-E slots one of them will be filled soon but i still have an empty slot
I'll try to get the 9300 folding again as well, so that would be another ~800 PPD
I'm scaling back a little until cooler weather sets in later this week. I will fold all 130K from Wednesday Pm on, as it looks like a nice cold spell is settling in for the next couple of weeks. Congrat's on the great job you guys have been doing. I almost disappeared off the 24hr numbers and you still pulled 800K! Awesome job to every single folder!
i need more heat in my room and more folding power...Hope the 8800GT's hurry and get here before it get too cold. I can't wait for the snow and below 0f to hit so i can put my "heaters" to the test. Last year with just 1 rig folding/crunching i got alittle cold this year i have 3rigs crunching/folding and went from 1 video card up to 4. So that should keep it nice in here
Heat definitely shouldn't be a problem with all of those GPUs and the P4s, I will hopefully be able to run my rig more once it cools off and it has a legitimate use as a heater
Looks like we all finally got our points from the server issue tonight
I hate all of these 1888 pt WUs, they bring the 8800GT down from the 5500 PPD it gets on 353pt WUs down to at the best case 4000, but usually lower. The only redeemable feature is that then run the card a lot cooler (~65c @ 30% fan vs ~82c @ 45% for the 353s)
A question I had about the 472 pt WUs, my 8800GT got one last night and I experienced something very odd. The PPD fluctuated wildly, between about 2900 and 4700, hanging around ~4100 most of the time. There seemed to be no correlation between PPD and temperature and fan speed (set to automatic) Why is this?
I got 4 rigs folding @ the moment. 1=corei7 960 4.0ghz with a xfx gtx285 both watercooled folding both cpu and gpu client. 2= q9400 quad 3.4ghz and a MSI gtx285 folding water cooled also both cpu and gpu client. 3= P4 3.9ghz and a ATI 3450 folding both cpu and gpu client. The last one is my Dell Precision E6400 laptop work machine= quad core extreme 2.54ghz with a 3700M dedicated video card folding both cpu and gpu client. I have one more machine that I'm building and will be done with soon. It's a core i5 with a xfx gtx275 both watercooled also, and it will also be folding on cpu and gpu when its done. Just started folding for TPU within the last 2 weeks and I seem to be moving up the ladder pretty quick.
