Just something that will run stable and close to factory.

Just find somebody to unlock your TDP or Power Limit and some more voltage. I wouldn't mess with anything else and you should be good. You can still make all adjustments through MSI Afterburner to your liking. My Power Limit is 150 and max voltage is 1.275 right now. I am watercooled so I have no heat problems.

The fluctuations that you are seeing on the core is the folding client saving progress.

I know what you're talking about but one card was fluctuating wildly. Up and down, up and down a few times a second. Everything is stable again, now. Thanks redface.gif

It's great that you got the cards working again. thumb.gif I moved on and came back for the FFW.

I'm glad everything is back to normal for you too. The biggest Project that I have issues with is 9430 which runs for almost 8 hours. Sometimes it encounters 'bad data' at 25% and then at 50% but finishes fine and completes. Other times it will run all of the way through without a single hitch but the server doesn't like my results and then dumps the WU. This is especially frustrating to me. I had been getting a steady diet of 8 to 10 hour long WU but after I removed the 'client-type advanced' flag things are back to normal for now. My normal ppd is around 400,000 per board but sometimes I drop into the low 300,000 range which really irritates me for some reason but work is work and it has to be done so I grin and bear it until the next WU comes along. Fold on for victory over the tyrrants that are killing us!

Quite honestly, I'll be giving my 980s a break for a while after the FFW. Since my folding rig was stolen, I only currently have my gaming rig to fold on. It's been rough not being able to use my new SLI setup for games this past week tongue.gif

This is primarily a gaming rig and is the sole purpose of my building it. It's just that the GTX-980 is such a workhorse at Folding I couldn't resist putting it to work. I leave SLI disabled since whenever I do enable it to check driver performance I always forget to disable it again so I can Fold. I can still play any game I own on a single 980 while the other 980 toils away in the background.

I'd do the same if I didn't have 1440p

I have 1440p on my list of upgrades but this VG248QE set me back quite a bit so I suspect I will be staring at it for a few more years to come.

Hey guys I've got a gtx 980 evga sc ac2.0. I plan to order some fugipoly ultra extreme pads since I almost always replace the pads on all my GPUs. Does anyone have the thickness of the pads and total area needed so I can place the order and not leave very much extra (stuff is very expensive). I plan to cover the front and back of the card. Upon removal it looks like they are 0.5mm but I'm sure I can't be the first to do this.
