    How can I check/examine this with precision? Have it running now.

    look in the graph if the numbers look lower then what you have the overclock set to.. then its in 2D mode..

    i believe mine drops to 400/1200/800 or something like that when its in 2D mode..

    Winner. Now a question. Is there a way to reset the driver without a reboot ala VPU recover? This is my first nvidia card that I bought specifically for folding in november, still noobish with green...

    The only way I've been able to deal with it is to reboot.

    Had to take the OC all the way back to stock to get the GPU to play nice with these new WU's. I think the moral of the story here is these new WU's rape GPU's.

    yeah like zero said you can only fix it by rebooting.. which is pretty lame in my opinion..


    try running the same overclock i am on my 260 with the fan at 70%.. should run perfectly fine as long as you dont try to play and video's or games while its running.. btw im running the 55nm version not sure if thats what you have as well.. so your gpu might not overclock as high as mine.. but the shaders should still be the same.. even if you had to leave the GPU at stock and overclock the shaders your PPD wont change much.. gpu overclock usually only adds about 100-150PPD anyways..

    I was getting between 8~9k on 353 pointers before I started seeing P10101, now with these lower clocks, I get a 353 pointer and it is now about 7400ppd. Anything higher than what I have now and I just get an EUE at 2% with a P10101.

    EDIT
    I run the fan at 100%.

    195.62, I updated in the midst of trying to figure all this out.

    I have an XFX 260-216.
