  1. Thanks for the heads up. I've now done a bunch of these. +1500 for GTS450 and +3K for GTX460. The temps are steady on the 450s, but up 10C on the 460s.
  2. Sorry, but that is wrong. You have to have GPU3 to run Fermi, you do not have to have Fermi to run GPU3. I've been running GPU3 on all NV from 8800 up since it came out. You can also run 8800 and up on V7. I think the only cards that can't use GPU3 are ATI 2xxx-3xxx or 2xxx-4xxx.
  3. Having an entire Distributed Computing forum instead of my single thread, you guys are all set up to support a PitCrew BOINC team right here. It does sound like a good use of hardware for those obsoleted out of FAH.
  4. What is this BPINC of which you speak? jk I'm not advertising, just answering questions. I'm on FAH "Team Elder Scrolls", but I'm not doing BOINC. We started on Planet Elder Scrolls with a bunch of people who played Morrowind. The team thread has since migrated to the Bethesda forums (makers of the Elder Scrolls series). A guy posted in the folding thread about running BOINC. With a Moderator (former folder) we got him his own thread (still floating, not pinned like mine). They also use the name Team Elder Scrolls to stay connected with the forum. Thread- http://forums.bethso...rolls-on-
  5. Well, it kind of makes my i7 purchases a waste of money, especially the 980X. I'm really glad I never gave in to the urge to buy a 2600K. I can still get 15-20K each with SMP (instead of the 50-80K with -bigadv), but in hindsight more GPUs on cheap dual core systems might have been a better buy. I'm not a terribly happy camper, but I'll live. I had played with the idea of building a server over the last few years. I may still go that way in the future. I see AMD came out with a 16 core Opteron last week....
  6. Several people on my "home" forum started a BOINC team about a month ago. A couple of the guys are former folders with older hardware. At least one of them does both BOINC and [email protected]
  7. What does a Kansas boy know about them big city minutes?
  8. Da nada. At least it's folding again instead of sitting idle in my parts closet. The P45 board it came from is just sitting here gathering dust, if you think you might want to try it. Gigabyte EP45-UD3P 2 PCIE slots
  9. Nope, it was my standard brand- Gigabyte. My old P35 has been running at 3.4 for about 4 years, but I could never get the 2 P45 boards above 2.8.
  10. He has v7. You have to run smp 8 to get bigadv with v7. smp 7 will download regular smp WU and repeatedly crash. v7 doesn't like most odd numbers. I can run smp 3 on a quad, but on an i7 I never tried 5, but 7 will always crash. QRB- quick return bonus, the faster you complete it, the more points you get. Requires the passkey and completing 10 a3/a5 smp WUs on time before you qualify for the bonus. bigadv WUs- I'm mostly seeing 6900 and 6901 with times of 28 (980X smp 10) to 37 minutes (930 and 950). Both are a5 WUs. First, we need to get the right WU on your machine, then we ca
  11. Yes, I'll be repeating a few things you already covered. Please don't yell at me. Scrolling up and down while trying to write sucks. Are you running v7 or v6? v7 saying 1300 PPD could be right because it doesn't figure QRB worth a crap. 1300 PPD on Fahmon or HFM running v6 could be a problem, or "figure QRB" is not checked, or something is wrong in config and it doesn't think you get the QRB. TPF is a better indicator. Depending on your clocks, you should see 30-45 minutes. QRB needs a passkey and 10 WUs completed on any SMP client using that passkey, on any machine. If you entered the p
  12. Yup. They even let me come around once in a while.
  13. Any chance of a bios update to handle the Fermi?
  14. Now it sounds like a mobo slot or PSU problem. Bummer, Dude.
  15. Try a different driver. There have been a crap load of reports on folding problems using 27x.xx drivers. I'm still running 260.99 on all of mine. My GPUZ has OpenCL, CUDA, and DirecrCompute 5.0 checked (I manually set PhysX to the cpu on my boxes).
