    9800GX2 is a monster folding I heard?

    Why did you take it out though, had something crap on it?

    With the right driver and OC yes:confused: Currently mine is sitting at 11K PPD on Windows7 with 185.85 drivers. I used to get 12.5K-14K from it when I was running it in Vista64 with 185.20 driver:confused: I might try to load that driver on Windows7 and see if it works.

    I read in another thread, can't remember which one about this. With the right drivers they are monsters. I believe somebody had issues with the drivers while folding and then that was posted. Thats why I asked. Good luck trying to get those drivers to work with W7 :toast:

    Benchmaster?:confused:

    Edit: Nevermind, just saw it at OCN. Hey CD, you wouldn't happen to have any cheaper tech stations, would you? I'm looking for one, but I don't want to spend a fortune on it.

    Not really sure. It depends...send me a PM with anything you may have, and what you might ask for it.

    the pc as of now kept restarting and restarting. I turned it off Cleared CMOS and now manually entered my settings back. Seems fine now as it is crunching away. Dont think it was instability. Think it just freaked out from the power going out. Hopefully everything is ok.

    I will look at the weather forecast for tomorrow, if it looks as bad as today, I will be forced to leave the rig off :(

    Welcome aboard, I haven't been returning too many results due to the fact that I've had some stability issues with my phenom II, they seem to be fixed now. BTW sweet system you have there, chickenpatty and i will be working on that 12 core soon :rockout:
