Have you unlocked the shader clock from the core clock? GPU2 is shader intensive. Find your shader threshold first, then start bringing the core and mem up. For example, this is my 8800GS set-up
Core - 750mhz
Shaders - 1758mhz
Memory - 898mhz
Fans @ 80%
Yeilds 4937PPD on a 480pt WU

Also, are you running a single or dual card set-up? Single card set-ups have the clocks set higher on the shaders only (1836mhz) for my applications. Like any overclocking, you have to find the sweet spot. Just remember that shaders are the rule with GPU2.
Single card setup. My shaders are locked to the core right now. Maybe I can back off the shaders and leave the core higher. Thanks. I'll try experimenting with that.

OK. That seems to have done it. I unlocked my shaders from the core and am now running at 738 core, 1782 shaders, 2000 memory and it ran through the night no problems. Now I need to start bumping the memory back up since I am pretty sure it was the shaders holding me back.

I discovered that another good program for stability is fluidmark. I could run furmark in stress mode no problems at my more agressive 760/1900/2120. Can also bench or game without noticing any artifacting. But if I try to run fluidmark at those settings it will hang the system after a few seconds. And folding will fail almost immediately as well. So I think if I can run fluidmark then it is an indicator that I will be ok for folding. Much faster than waiting for an overnight run.

And on a side note I finally made it into the top 10 in folding. Now I am just waiting for my power bill :)

OK. I think I will just leave the memory at 2000MHz DDR. This particular card has 1GB memory and they are located back to back on the board. Since I WC the core I use RAM sinks on the memory and they get pretty toasty since each has a twin on the other side of the card heating it from the back. No sense making them hotter for limited return.

I think I'll pass on the power bill switch ;)

although I have my share of current draw on the grid. 2 full fridges + 2 full freezers, an electric clothes dryer and water tank plus a pool pump can go through electrons faster than all my puters....

Have I ever bitched about your fish tank? Lol! Thanks for using your cores and folding for the cause, and most importantly thanks for folding under my name for whatever reason you have. I'll happily pay the power bill! :toast:

Folding a 4870X2 24x7 now, Currently 3334PPD according to FAHMon. (GPU-Z shows 0% load :confused:)

PPD should go up once I overclock my Q6600, CPU limited ATM. Anyone know how to fold on both 4870X2 cores?

Adding a 3650 and a Q6600 from mid-October

WELCOME TO THE TEAM!:toast: You cannot currently utilize the 2nd core of the 4870x2 with the current drivers/client. Mike Houston with AMD is working on this and hopefully it will be resolved in the near future. Keep an eye on the following section of the F@H forum:

I joined our team, simply because I want to start folding.

I'm running my E6750 and 8800GT both folding, I guess I'll see what kind of results I get. On a note, though, my 8800GT temps get high at 100% usage (around 74C) with the fan at 100%. I turned it down to 80% usage, and reset the OC settings I had back to stock, and the temps dropped to 70C. Any advice to cool that off? My cores are running at 42/43 under 100% load.

Also, how do you get the signature showing your folding stats =)

Hmm...It seems half my clients(both SMP and normal) has just stopped recieving work. They just report back that there is no more work to do in the log. I'll have to look into that, it is killing my PPD. Though I don't really have the time anymore to manage all my clients, I might have to step back the folding from now on and let someone else take the points lead. Probably only keep one or two clients folding.

I GOT DIBS!!!:laugh: Not a prob Newtekie. You have laid the groundwork and you deserve some time to chill:toast:. TPU will always be here and whatever ppd you can contribute is much appreciated. I want to personally thank you for your commitment to folding.
