My main high ppd rig will be down for a few days. My 5970 decided to die :-( I powered on and saw a teeny tiny bit of smoke come out of it and now it is dead. I just requested an RMA from Sapphire and in a fit of rage I ordered a new one from Newegg which should arrive on monday. Even though I really don't have the money to buy a new one, I do not feel like waiting acouple weeks for my RMA. On the plus side, when my RMA does come back I'll have a crossfire 5970 :-) I just hope it was worth the money. I'm already kicking myself for ordering it.

So I am still able to use my system. I have my 9800gtx as my main display, but until I get my new card I will not be doing to much folding on this rig. I can't figure out what happend. I purchased some new white UV PCI-E extension cables to make my inside look nicer. All I did was plug them in, I didn't touch anything else in my system and when I powered on my poor 5970 was toast. I've never had anything like this happen to me with a cable. I'm not even 100% sure it was the cable, but since everything was fine and the cables were the only change I don't know what else it could be.

I am working on project 2684 right now and it's at 80%. As soon as it's completed I will down until probably monday. I will still be running smp clients on my other system (core 2 quad @ 3ghz) but it is not nearly as fast.

Yeah, I watched my temps real closely with the ATI. I usually was around 58-60c. I never folded without putting the fan on manual control and cranking it up to 75-80%. I hope it didn't have anything to to with folding. I had completed 2 projects on it 8 hours earlier and hadn't used it since. My system was fine until I plugged the new cables in. The second I powered on I saw a small ring of smoke come out of the board.

I am really confused about this whole thing. On the one hand, I think it had something to do with the cable. On the other hand I just can't figure out how a cable could fry my board unless the manufacturer somehow messed up and crossed some wires. I checked the cable up and down and there is nothing I can see that is wrong and I'm too scared to attempt to test them on another card.

Really sorry to hear about your GPU. At least you managed to stop the system before it could damage other components

While the PCI-E Cable could be physically undamaged, maybe the wires inside were not up to standard or something else. Maybe static charge built-up and caused it. On the other hand, it could be that it died of "natural causes" in which case, there was nothing that could have done to save it I had a sound-card that died like that but it didn't go in vain as I convinced my parents that a new motherboard with built-in sound-card was the "obvious" solution. (that's how I got my second upgrade

I'm back everyone. I got my new 5970 installed, however I will only be folding -bigadvs for now. I still haven't figured out what cause my last one to die so I'm little nervous about using it to fold. I think I will probably wait into the new client comes out before I start folding on it. Hopefully a beta version gets released soon.

Your complaining about 2684 if it takes 2 days 15 hours, mine takes 3 days 16 hours. However, the other bigadv WUs takes 2.5 days.

It seems the folding@home is ... downright incompatible with some other software I'm running (both using CAL), so for a few weeks now (until I'm done with these calculations) I'll disable folding on the rigs.

I'm not permanently quitting, just detaching for some weeks.

I got some nasty NANS detected on GPU issues with my GTX 460 atm, not sure what's causing it.
I've already clocked the card back to basic speeds and deleted my work folder but the errors won't go away.

Going to try to run openCL memtest to check the card. In worst case scenario I might have killed off the memory after leaving it folding for 12 hours.

So after running memtest OpenCL and not finding any errors I decided to give the card a run in my workstation case and behold no problems.
After deleting and reinstalling the client everything works fine again on my folding rig.
In addition, clocking back the card to it's stock speeds even seems to have given it a speed boost. Before I used to fold around 8000 ppd, now I'm getting 10000 ppd.

Second GTX470 is now in place and folding (Have issues in game when using SLI (not related to folding) but I have just disabled that for now), new motherboard looks to be better for OCing than old one. At 3.9ghz now, will try for more some time.. Showing 38,000 - 39,000 ppd now..

Hey iancook, how about this setup:
SMP2 BETA Client with -smp 10
2 X GPU3 BETA Client
1 Classic Client
That way, your SMP2 WUs will not EUE due to -smp 11 and you will have a 2 free threads, one can be for 2 GPUs while the other can sun a single instance of Classic Client.

I run -bigadv -smp7 p2684 with 53:30~53:40 tpf (~16000 ppd) @ 3.6ghz / 6-7-6-18@1600 marginally better than I obtained with A3 normal WU's (13-14k ppd). From what I see I guess p2684 is slower than rest of bigadv projects. My 480 keeps folding 15-16k ppd on the same rig.

I will wait to see how it goes with WU's from the other bigadv projects as well.

I've had enougth of the graphical problems with Sli enabled so have decided to go with a one card setup.
New GTX580 arrives today, lower PPD I know but better for my gaming...
