Blue screen caused by folding? (0x101)+ Folding questions?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
(Really sorry for this thread being a bit long)

Well i hope this is the correct place for this
Last night i started folding for the 1st time (Gpu+Cpu) and i left it on all night no problem this morning i got up and it was still running fine and my cpu Wu was at 98% done so i took a shower (coolstorybro) anyway when i came back out my computer was blue screened with the error message

"A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocation time interval"
And blue screen code 101

oh yea and when i got back on windows the folding client gave me some message about how a process (3706?) or something was running and interfering with it and to restart the client, whats up with that?

Seeing as how this likely happened when the Wu finished or when it was almost done i was wondering if finishing it caused some sorta problem? i have never had this blue screen before, my overclock is stable tested though games benchmarks and prime95 (and 9hours of straight folding...)

So anyone know the cause of that and/or how to fix it ive stopped folding (at least with cpu, my gpu completes and starts new ones just fine...)

And seeing as how im already posting i might as well ask some questions i had being a newbie folder and all that

I am currently running my 460 while my 580 is rmaed so when my 580 gets back will it be possible for me to
A. use both of them for folding at the same time?
B. use the 460 for folding while i game using my 580? (or vice versa)

and are sustained temps of ~66c ok for 12 hour periods on my cpu
And 70c on my gpu
(ik the temps are fine but are they ok for LONG periods without damage)

Sorry for such a long thread, any help appreciated

As for the BSOD I would guess that it's a sign of CPu instability but I don't really know CPUs so rather than expose my ignorance I'm just going to point to you the best person with SB CPUs I know. Luckily according to the BSOD code guide at the bottom of the OP of that thread, the 101 BSOD is just a straight "increase vcore" which is preferable to the more difficult to pin point "124" that I need to deal with soon.

As for your other questions, yes there would be no problem running both of those GPUs together or folding on the 580 while gaming on the 460, you'd just need to pause the 460's client. The two most popular options for setting up multiple GPU clients would be the GPU tracker which will set up all the individual clients you need for you pretty easily, and those are all official clients that it will set up for you. The other option that is still in beta which has given some people some minor problems but I've liked it is the client v7 which is the "folding" link in my signature. There is also another method of manually setting up the necessary multiple clients linked in the Essential threads that I have linked in my signature.

Those temps are more than fine and you have nothing to worry about at all based on those temps alone even for constant 24/7 folding according to everything I've seen on the forums here. Another consideration that is just as important or more so than the temperatures is the voltages but most people will say less than 1.4v is safe for a SB CPU, and if you post up the volts on your 580/460 I can tell you more about them. I'd also need to know the brand/make of the 460 but if that Lightning 580 is the one in question I can tell you that it's a great card so unless your volts are way too high then you should be in great shape with that card.

I think that addresses all the questions I can.

Thanks for response, are you sure its voltage cause it happened right as the wu finished.. witch makes me suspicious that im using the wrong client or something

Yea the lightning is an amazing card cant wait to get it back (Rma sucks >.<), as for my 460 its a evga gtx 460 SC edition but its clocks are
1.087v (max in afterburner)
900/1800/1900 (i dont mess with mem clocks dont make a big diff in my book)
and the fan runs at 75% cause im a tad bit paranoid

Well as I said I don't CPUs enough to tell you for sure one way or another, but that would be my guess is vcore. But if you think it's CPU instability then the sandy stable club I posted is an excellent resource.

The 460 voltage might be just a touch high for 24/7 constant folding but just in my opinion. That's only because the lack of VRM cooling on that card, I think if it were me I might lower the voltage down to 1.075v if you run constant 24/7 but if you ran just 12/7 or something then I'm sure that would be fine. Of course you could just leave it as you have the EVGA warranty but I like to play it safe and conservative with voltages.
