    Thanks. I'll mess with the oc some more. The shader clock is was down also. Whats some decent clocks ppl are gettin on the 460? Might give me a base to work around.

    running mine stock now was having a memory problem that i'm trying to isolate between my gpu's or my ram i was running @ stock vlts. 860 core and 1720 shaders... if you up vlts be careful watch temps and chk stability!

    I'm on 800 core, very little compared to what they're capable of. But since they run in a dedicated computer without screen I rather they be stable. I'd imagine 850 would be the sweepspot for F@H. Have a quick read through the link below:

    if someone has too much money

    then they should grab a pair of 580s :roll:

    that is just insane for 611 :D

    Were you running F@H at that time? My card will go all the way down to 300 core if it's idle. If you were running F@H, looks like you had a driver crash at some point. My card works after a driver crash, but at reduced clocks.

    @Gary
    Those spikes you're seeing are GPU usage, not clocks. Some work units load the core on and off like that to help temps.

    Havent seen any GPU3 units cycle usage like that, not since GPU2 1888WUs have I seen cycling. The one thing that I have noticed is that any activity like loading up a picture heavy website causes the usage to spike, even my anti virus jams it up like that. I don't know if its just me, but it never did that on my 275 and doesnt do it on my 250.

    110 and counting..

    Hardware Alert: Today is Newegg's last day for the 10% discount on video cards with promo EMCZZYR24.

    If you don't like MIR's, just skip the rest of this post:D
    Might I suggest the following, with an eye on the new BIG WU's? The MSI N460GTX Twin Frozr II SOC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card can be had for $185*.9+4S&H(170.5)-30MIR=$140.50 One of the feedbacks noted that the card used to be $20 cheaper before they added the free? Hawk 2 game.

    You guys are lucky. I got 0 complete / 5 fails after a sys restart last night. I'm still doing that 1298 and only gettin 5k+ ppd on the 460 oc'ed.

    It kinda fluctuates around some. I have no clue why. Now its showing 11k+. It'll change again in a few.

    5k PPD? That's incredible :shadedshu

    The worst I've ever seen on a GTX460 is ~8.5k PPD

    I haven't had any problems with the 1298 yet...


    The 480 is the only fermi card that had a failure so far.

    popswala what is your OC speeds now.

    You need to start dropping your OC until the load gets back to 100%. Sounds like the OC is to high.

    No way I can get that high without more volts than the 1.0 you are set at..
    Here is my 480GTX, I can get a shot of my 460's later today. My 450GTS is only capable of doing those speeds and the volts are a lot higher.

    Agreed. The best I can do on stock volts is 840 core on my EVGA 460. Anything higher and it starts artifacting like crazy.

    1298? Something to look forward to when I get home?
