Im usually on linux for tc and just run the cpu, after the fat i shut down windows and went back into linux
Once i get my tc dedi going im going to try and oc the 570 more in the main rig. I moved around some case fans and dropped the gpu temps down almost 10*c. At 850 and 1.025 volts its only 65c while folding. Im hopeing to push it to 950 and still get good temps. Eventually im gonna get an aftermarket cooler for it and push for a gig.
Hmmm. Maybe I dont have the clients configured correctly. I am going to need some help getting it sorted out I think. I will start a thread outside of this one asking for advice on how to ge the PPD on the 2 cards. I know they can do better, I am just not sure how to get them there. GHz on a 570 is gonna take some serious cooling amigo but it will indeed be fast.
Looks like i finished in 41st. Not to bad for a first time folder and not getting good PPD out of my 2 570s. I will try to improve on that for Sept.
