Well I'm posting this because I'm a noob and hadn't cleaned out my system in awhile (probably 5-6 weeks) and was having massive heat spikes on my gtx 295 well finally just cleaned it all out and repositioned my pc closer to the window shaved 30c off the temps :D
bring the oc's back on woo woo...
I know for Nvidia cards at least you have to run separate instances of folding for each gpu, also you probably will have to tag the first one with -gpu 0 and the second one with -gpu 1 after the -forcegpu.
Ati Crossfire people I'm sure will correct me if i'm wrong! :D
Welcome to the Team btw!!!
Just brought a dual quad xeon online I need to get it tuned up and figure out the -bigadv workout units to get some serious points out of it. Also looks like I will be able to bring my 9800 gx2 box back online as it's finally getting cool enough to run without AC -_- so I hope to be able to get...
Inevitably I have had some fairly warm days out this last week which really sucks for folding as I refuse to run the AC in November so I have had to turn off a couple of clients off and on this last week:(
I've brought 20k ppd back online over the last week I have about another 40k ppd sitting in my room that will turn back on when I can afford the power and then a dual quad xeon box that I have coming up soon :) hopefully that should help a bit to fend off evga! :D
thats just the main computer room lol there are like 5 laptops and another desktop as well. I have thought about selling or giving away my cards but I know I would kick myself in sep/october if I did that.
Only thing electric we had was the fridge :eek: stopped folding turned of the AC(small ac unit used to cool computer room due to excessive heat) and bill dropped over 300 bucks the next month... -_-
I was gone half of this month so I even had my main rig completely down + all the monitors for...
Wow very nice Looks exactly like my build except mine isn't naked or running right now. (I got a powerbill for $650) Sadly all my stuff is down until winter because keeping it cool in 100 degree heat isn't viable for me right now:( but here's to you kicking ass!!!
my 295 will do stock clocked 10-14k ppd (14 unless 511's are plaguing me) however after chimp challenge i will probably be winding down my folding box for a couple of months as today it was in the 100's outside and that's a lot of heat to overcome. (I will however probably be building a 260...
i'm running 5 in my current folding box so 4 shouldn't be an issue, however ram can become an issue unless your running a 64 bit os.
I can only run one vm on my main box because 2 gx2 and a 9800gtx doesn't leave me enough ram to run 2 vm's without killing gpu ppd.

sorry was thinking of jbf up a couple of posts
I'm only running one for core11 and one for core 14 and it keeps all the threads in my comps nice and separated
