    well i ran furmark for jst under an hour and at 48 minutes my temp spiked up from 65 to 85 and then my display went black 3 times... it seems to me that the card is unstable but i'm still under the safe temps when it bricks... i was also loading the cpu with crunching at the same time if that matters. When my screen came back up i had artifacts and had to reboot but got a pic of furmark before i did. Any idea's guys?!?:banghead::banghead::banghead:

    I think the temp is a bit overboard, what do you think?

    Maybe try getting the card to lower the temps a bit, point a fan or open the case up or something.

    i dropped the clocks to 875/1200 and that seems to have done the trick will run overnight to make sure my voltages are stable as well as my gpu load.:rockout:

    garyinhere: You will get much better PPD and reduce the load on your CPU if you input the environmental variables. Use this thread for setting up ATI cards and I explained where in post #24 of that thread. This could be why your load was going up and down the other day. Also, anything that uses the graphics card will affect F@H GPU performance, so I would close the WCG window.

    You mean this window? Wouldn't think it has an impact at all.

    MSI GTX 480 :D

    The two 460's will now be full-time dedicated, and the 480 will be folding around 18 hours a day.

    your output should be nice :)
    If you decide to donate the gtx 275 for folding i would be happy to take it *just some food for the thought*

    I had a total of 7 GPU's down for 12 hrs including my -bigadv machine:banghead:. With that said, today will be a bit lower for me and my -bigadv will wrap up tomorrow night instead of in the morning.

    Both rigs were on the same circuit, so I wonder if the hotel tested the GFCI during the day. While I love the free electric, I cannot wait to get into my apartment in the next 2 weeks. Must tell self that free elec is worth it.....

    Well that sucks Buck :(

    How many pts did you loose on the bigadv?

    @DaMulta: That could be 200k+ PPD easy! :respect:

    @Kiex: Nice!

    Loosing 7k isn't so bad. The one time I tried bigadv on my i7, it BSODd, I didn't notice, and I got 8,955 points instead of the 60k+. I was super pissed, just ran normal SMP after that

    Id love to follow that path. I was working on my 470 upgrade but I had to buy new couches for $600, and saw a great deal on a set of near new 18" tires for my car that I had to buy for $182 (winter weather and bald tires do not mix :laugh:).

    The dream isn't dead though, until then I will just watch your production sky rocket and think of what could've been :D
