Don, what driver version are you running and is it CUDA enabled? Try these(just select your OS)
http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_get.html
Most everyone uses 177.35
Let me know if that helps.

This GPU client is pretty cool. My 9800 GTX folds like a pro too!
Now "You" need to fold like a "Pro" and let that 9800GTX run 24/7. This team has the ability to hit 100k per day. I am adding 2 more GPU for an additional 10k next week. Pbmaster, we also need every avail point from you.;)

Fold it like you stole it!!!

Yeah I was running the latest that NVIDIA's site gave me but that was 175.39.

I uninstalled all the F@H stuff and am updating the drivers with that cool Forceware package doodad I found here onsite. I'll give an update when it comes available.:) Plus I'll have a free game to play!

My plans have changed for the 4xGPU Monster. I was always wary of how 4xgpu would scale together. I have decided to use existing hardware and run 3 separate rigs. It appears I will run 5x gpu clients and 3x smp. I'm hoping to net 27.5k ppd. I am swapping out old PSU's for 80plus certified. Should have 3rd rig running late next week. Rigs will consist of 2x8800GS, 2x9600GSO, and 1x 8800GTS. I can't wait for winter because this room could heat the whole house:cry:

New drivers fixed my problem nicely. GPU and CPU are getting their fold on.

My GPU is kicking my CPU's ass:laugh:

I think perhaps we can consider you a "folding enthusiast" Buck Nasty. You've got some serious motivation going on :toast:

Averaging 27k ppd, it won't take you long to catch up with newtekkie :)

I can see there being some heat output from that room lol.

Already up to #79. :laugh: Go 8800GT go!

The Nvidia 177.83 drivers are out. They now incorporate Physx. A plus for us gamers. I do believe I am seeing a small performance increase in PPD on the GPU's. I'll know more in the next few day. It could just be a WU fluke...

can i fold with a 4850 ?
You will only get about 2000-3000 PPD with the current GPU2 client. It only utilizes 320(as in HD3870) of the 800 shaders on the card. I actually had my 3870 up to 3000 PPD with my P5Q Pro/E8400 rig. ATI is working on the CAL portion of the client to optimize the PPD. Start folding now and you will be in good shape when the next update comes around. We need every available point we can get!:toast:

Is anyone having any trouble with GPU2 connecting to the servers? I got 3 GPU's idling....:wtf: Oh well, good time to shut down for much needed maintenance

Oh, this is not good. It appears that quite a few, if not all the servers are down. This is gonna hurt... I guess I will start benchmarking my systems to kill time.....:shadedshu

EDIT: as of 8:15pm EST, servers are back up.....;)

Coming back online

Posted at 04:54 PM-August 18th, 2008
Coming back online

Here's the update from Stanford

Power mostly restored to campus
Updated 3 p.m pacific time. - Power has been restored to the majority of the Stanford campus. All normal power is expected to be restored by 5 p.m. or sooner. A major outage occurred today at 11:30 a.m., affecting P G & E customers in Stanford, Menlo Park, Atherton and Palo Alto. If you are still experiencing difficulties on the Stanford campus, call 723-2281. At Stanford Hospital, dial 286.


This one was a major disaster at Stanford and Palo Alto (and nearby cities), probably the biggest outage in a while. However, there seems to be some major Stanford power outage once a year, which is a major problem.

With this in mind, we have been distributing more of FAH to outside of Stanford (with servers at UCSF, Columbia, Cal State U Long Beach, and U. Pittsburgh). We hope to have a European site soon. Once those sites are a bit more established, we'll see about pushing an assignment server to a non-Stanford site and we should be much more safe to Stanford-related issues.

Also, it's good that we have servers in 4 different server rooms on campus. One stayed up the whole time, two came up fast, and the fourth (VSPGxx) is coming up now. Some servers will be slow to come up, so we expect this may take at least a few hours.

The stats update has been turned off until this gets sorted out. We hope to turn it back on later tonight, but it may have to wait until tomorrow morning.
IN OTHER WORDS, DON'T EXPECT STATS UPDATES UNTIL LATER TODAY.....KEEP FOLDING!!!

did some cleaning of the pc and optimizing today. i think i figured everything out, according to fahmon i should be getting just under 9k ppd. lets cross our fingers and hope.

i just wish my 4870 scored better. its saying 1444ppd in fahmon but taking less than 1 minute to complete a frame of 4715 for 122points. where as my 9600gt is doing project 5015 for 480 points and takes about 2minutes to complete a frame, but is getting 3500ppd.

i really dont understand the points thing, but still happy to help.

Good to see more users joining up! I had to slack a bit today...was getting too damn hot, so I left my rig off while I was at work...got my PC Room wayyy cooled down lol! Still chipping away with at least my GTX260 and 9600GT...mostly just those!

I may be selling my Q6600 soon if someone wants quad core folding, running affinity changer and 2xSMP clients, it's good for 3.4-3.6k PPD in my rig! Just giving a heads up if things go my way! :D Won't be as good for folding necessarily (compared to the q6600), but will be good for OC-ing!

:toast:
