We all had some off weeks, hint, hint
Ouch!:banghead: Trust me, it was killin' me while I was not folding, but I'd like to think I'm making up for lost time now.

Yes I know that it was IFX just hinting so he could get his 460 back on track and yes you are making up for lost time. My own track record is not that great but when BOINC for once offers a good deal you have to try it out. I just found out that NVida might be better off for folding in these days. A bit like a lottery - did I pick up a 8057?

Edit: Yes I did. Back to back 8057s sweet.

In the last 36 hrs, I have had all 8057 wu's except for 4(which were 8xxx wu's). Let's hope the string continues.

PS. I also picked up my 1st 8102 on the Opty-6176 rig last night. Currently pulling 650K ppd and it should have dumped already(2pm EST for 400K):rockout:.

Lucky you. Since running SMP under FaControl has brought me nothing but errors (OK got two-three in 48 hours) I reverted to the good old fashion way. At least I didn't pick up a 78xx so I should be good. I added a GTS 450. Anyone ever tried to get a 8057 on one of these GPUs? Anyway my workshop was getting cold (my 4.1 GHz i970 was below 45 C on air cooling) so even with only 10K PPD it prevents rust stains on my poor quality tools ;)

Edit: Three in a row :cool:

I'm at around one 8057 wu for two any other ones. Not once did the two fold one simultanously though.
If I understand you right then you never had two 8057 at the same time. Is your GPUs both in the same rig? I would hate if my faster card (rig 1) not get one if my slow card (rig 2) is working on one already. But again if a GTS 450 could get one then I just improve my chances to download them.

I looked at prices for new a 460. Yikes. Anyway I bought 3 GPUs the past three weeks so my quota is full.

Yep you guys are more adventurous than me. Very slight overclock 670 core. Think Ill leave it as is and see what happens. ;)
I'm pretty sure any gtx 460 will run 750 core without any other tweaks. The worst gf104 core i came across, out of ten tested cores, reached 800 before needing any more juice. They just beg to run faster, more like stock gtx 560 clocks.

And from experience, ppd scale almost linearly with clocks: from 725 to 910 mhz core means 25.5% faster. PPD came from 12k up to 15k (assuming 2387 or 5757 wu), 25% more points. The damned 5187 showed a more drastic increase: 8k to a little more than 11k, so a 38% ish addition.

If you can keep them cool, like below 70c, they will clock like there's no tomorrow.

My clocks were done under water, so don't expect more than 850-875 on air, but i like to see ocing while folding like turning a 5$ bill into a 10$ one!

Well i'm stuck with only one gtx 460 2win, so two 460. It's twin sister is gone to RMA.

My GTX460s both do just under 850MHz core on stock cooling folding stable :)

That's more like it!

My 910 needed max safe volts, so 1,087v. All three gtx 460 cyclone i had watercooled ran those clocks, humming at 45-50c...

I tried unlocking the voltage to 1,212v, as temps were not a problem, and it took 1,2 to get to 930. WAY past the point of diminishing returns, i concluded.

Yes 2 x 7770 and one 7950 plus the one 7770 (the money for it) I gave as a price for the TPU competition. I came one week late to the party. I was sitting in Zambia and saw people flying past me so I HAD to do something to make up :)

Nice -bigadv dump Feanor! We are at 2.2 million with another update to go.:rockout:
:toast:

Had a surprise yesterday: i forgot a bid i put on a supermicro X8DTH-6F motherboard on ebay. Won the motherboard yesterday for 85$. Got two l5520 for 80$ each so around 300$ for a 8c/16t setup. I now hope it can do -bigadv, but that'll be close i think... Must be able to do better than 34 min tpf on 8101!
