lol. Sure thing. Gonna do it this wkend.
Both of my rigs are up and running again for the CC, here's a screen shot.
Whee, freak heat wave... not good for 1st gen i7s! 80f easy today, and higher in apt. When it hits 100f in here, I'll bet my 950 starts going down... the xeon is at turbo at 3.4 and 1.2v, so it will probably keep going. Summer should be fun!
Will you be joining the Chimp Challenge this year? We hit 85f today in Bismarck.
I got up this morning to P764x's on all 3 of my cards. This means I had to shut down one of my cards in SLI, so my PPD for the CC is cut in half. There might be a bright side to this. Don't you think that EVGA is very GPU heavy? If so, this will hurt their PPD big time. Let's hope.
i love folding. i cant wait to get a CPU and get my electric paid. it would feel good to be an honorary ancient member submitting PPD again.
I am folding again for team 596 (for the moment), after not having done so for a while.
I used to fold on the HD 4850 I have but the card was BSOD'ing for a while when gaming. I solved that like half a year ago but errors in OCCT's GPU tool made me fear for soft errors when running F@H. The latter and the fact that the 4850 draws quite some power made me decide to move towards SMP. With the "old" SMP client that seemed to misbehave sometimes (it seemed to be Intelligent Energy Saver, most likely. With only Speedstep enabled for power saving, the latest version of the v7 client behaves well (the Linpack test in OCCT went well too, over a period of 24 hours)).
So after a break of a few months (did not feel like folding for a while, as you perhaps can imagine and other matters made me somewhat forget about it) I am back into it. I am considereing to move from team 596 (Appetite for Tech's team) to the TPU team because I have not visited Appetitefortech.com for ages while I am much at this place (it is mostly an emotional thing I guess, because there is no rational reason to switch )
Next WU will be for TPU.
Hi guys.. I get something like 5,3K PPD with my 8800GTX. Is it a good valor for this card ?
That is pretty good for a G80 card, but they are known to run very hot. What is your O/C and what are the shaders running at?
It's running @ 612/ 1566/ 945. It's working at 45°C. The card is cooled by an Accelero + 2*140mm fans
F@H GPU2 benefits from shaders more than core clock. Memory does nothing for F@H. You should be able play around with the shaders until it crashes, then back it down one strap(54mhz).
Damn... I left the pc folding for 10hrs....the videocard shader were at 1620 and the videocard was not stable so it has failed something like 10WUs so I've dowclocked the shaders.
ive been messing about, trying to eek a few ppd, and i have tune up util 2011 (tut) ,this disables aero when turbo'd and helped increase ppd as well as that I optimised settings for performance(in catalyst and tray tools) And a new one on me i switched to force crossfire to 1x1 optimised and my ppd started to go up as has my gpu utiliisation, can someone else try this, i did shut down evry thing not needed too even gadjets
coincidentaly if you have any ideas for me please tell im after CC ppd ere i couldnt take the ,,,,,,,,,,, will the OC hold heartache at work, longer then 10 days
ive attached a pic , same oc prior to cat tweek gave 20K ppd its still going up

Death in the family. Will be gone a month.
Sorry to hear about that....
Sorry to hear Bruce. Take care my friend.
Sorry man. My Condolences.
My condolences go out to you and your loved ones buddy. You are a great member and we will all have you in our thoughts! Take your time!
Sorry to here about your loss
Bruce, your family will be in my prayers.
Sorry to hear that. My condolences.
Our familys prayers will be with you.
Darnit, that chimp challenge cost me... one of my gtx260s kicked the bucket at the end. I'm down to a single 260 and an i7 xeon folding now. I really need new video cards. A couple of 570s would be nice.....
Ug, no, I have to wait for offers on used 470s or better. Those cards were my backups for my main system, and now I don't have them. The remaining msi 260 is a sweetheart, and I want to save it. As soon as I get new cards, I'll throw my 285s in the folding box until one of them dies!
Heck with that, used 480s or 570s, no point in wasting my time.....
Why not GTX 460s? They get ~15K each and are around the $100-125 mark. Unless you get the $220 EVGA GTX 480 on Newegg, why not get 2 GTX 460s and have way more CUDA cores to play with? They're easier to get and you won't feel so bad when one blows up (the last card I would buy is a reference 570 as it only has 2/3 the current capability of the GTX 580).
