Will folding 24/7 kill my card - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Actually, just after looking at your system, you'll have a BEAST folder.

the i7 will grant you around 16,000-24,000ppd.
Your 7950 should grant you around 75-90k ppd EACH
I'm not sure how well your 5850 will do if you still have it but I'd put it in just to see tongue.gif

I personally OC my GPU a bit when I fold, however, I OC less than I do when I game. I also lower my memory clock as much as possible just because it's not needed for F@H. This way, I'm ensuring maximum stability so I can leave my PC for a few days at a time and not worry that my client has crashed because of a unstable OC or something along those lines.

For instance, I bench my 670 at 1300mhz, I game at 1280mhz, I fold at 1250mhz...stock is 1215mhz.

I just so happen to have a pretty darn good 670, but you can see how I taper off on the OC'ing as I intensify the load.

As far as temps are concerned, just keep them under 90C. My 670 and 7870 don't go over 70C, so it may not be too much of an issue, but if you want to feel a little more comfortable, just raise your fan profile enough that it keeps your GPU's in the 70's-low 80s.

So I slapped the 5850 in to just have as a 24/7 folding card, and I have it playing together well with the 7950 as far as drivers go, just not sure if my psu is up to the task of my whole rig at full bore, with the 5850 going too. Any thoughts?
