    I currently am running a GTX580 (very overclocked) and 2600K (@4GHz) with the new v7 beta client on my home PC. At work I have the ATI 6570 running v7 beta also.

    From what I can tell using the extreme folding http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_list.php?s=&t=69411 stats I am only around 3k points/24hr!

    This seems rediculously low for what is essentially 3 clients of which 1 (the GTX580) should be scoring high.

    Any suggestions what could be wrong (if at all).

    I was using 6.41 clients but have switched to V7 beta to see if I can get improvement.

    very strange, i think my 580 at stock clocks gets around 15-16k a day, so something is up. how long has this been going on? with the current set up that is?

    Have you checked your system energy savings settings in windows and mobo?
    I dunno I just thought of that, maybe idling your pc cuts off some power and reduces performace?

    Maybe what I said was total bs.

    A 285 gtx does around 9k a day
    so a 580 super overcklocked should do about 170-200% of that score...

    As some1 said above, maybe your VGA is not activating 3d clocks while rendering. It is something weird... but common, it seems !

    Checked with Afterburner running, and noticed that profile 1 wasn't activated (880 core) but was running at 800 (default for my card). So not 2D speed at least :)

    I havn't been using the home PC for a few months to fold only the work PC and noticed I had slipped 5 places so decided to fire it up at home as well.

    Looking back a few months at my stats there is a HUGE difference (was 20k avg.), I am very disappointed at the moment.

    Ok, rooting through the log file, both the cpu and gpu in the V7 client are saying unstable_machine :(

    Seems my overclocks are too aggressive for FaH. Weird because I havn't had any crashes in games etc.

    Anyways, guess it means I'll have to lower my OCs if I want to fold on that PC.

    folding is needs way more stability than gaming if your gpu is folding stable then its as good as it gets to stable

    if it's not stable, just crank up the voltage... it will heat up more, but it will be stable.

    F@H makes for a very reliable stability test.

    They recommend against overclocking when using the F@H GPU client due to increased likelihood of errors, which results in unusable data.
