GTX 460 HAWK Folding Problems

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been folding on my 460 HAWK for several months and seem to have rather low ppd compared to what most people get. I am running it at 900 core and 1800 shader with max temps in the upper 60's. I have experienced no down-clocking issues and the problem has persisted across all driver versions that I have tried. For gaming, the card works fine and actually performs better than it should according to benchmarks and reviews I have looked at. Any help would be appreciated.

You should definitely be getting around 12,000 at those clocks. I see that you're running -advmethods, perhaps, take that off for a bit and see what happens?

You could also try throwing the GPUs are core of your 2600k and see if that improves your PPD.

Not sure what "throwing the gpu's are core of your 2600k" means?
Without the -advmethods flag, I generally get only slightly higher at about 8k.

In your target for the 2600k shortcut, put "-smp 7" instead of "-smp" (no quotes, just showing the difference).

I will try that this evening but it is strange because my 560 hawk has no trouble at all. Even when the 460 is running by itself tpf does not change.

My next guess would be an unstable OC, but usually that is indicative with failed units.

Perhaps try backing off the clocks a bit, I run mine at 1650 shaders for about 11.4k PPD.

So the 560Ti and 460 is in the same rig? If so I've seen a similar problem, also 560Ti+460 (+9800GTX) and the 560 performed as it should, the 460 was way down tho, in the region of your cards performance, clocked at 880MHz. All three cards have been at their clocks for months so it's not an unstable OC that causes this, in my case.

Now the rig only contains the 560Ti+9800GTX and even then the 9800GTX give slightly lower output than normal. I've tested each card on it's own in that rig and got the numbers I expected, tried a few drivers (only a few tho, and not the golden 266.66 iirc) and now it rocks 285.38 but the problem still persists. Moved the 460 to another rig temporarily and haven't have time too look further into the problem.

You could try the 460 by itself if you haven't already just to make sure the card's alright. It seems the 560Ti decrease the performance of any other cards in the rig. Not a solution, but just to let you know that here's another guy that has the same problem.

Backed off on clocks for a couple hours and the ppd went even lower.

It seems as though this is what is happening to me as well.
