I can go up about 3 shader straps on my 280 before it starts to EUE on some WUs, (temps look fine), that only puts it at 8 - 8500 ppd. My stock clocked GX2s range between 9 - 11k ppd.
I wish I knew how some of you guys are getting these big ppd results that I see floating around for some of these cards. I find that they may run a certain OC on certain WUs, but then EUE on other WUs. I hate checking a machine and find that it has been in an EUE loop for 12 or 14 hours.
I have 3 - 9800GTX+ that were powerhouse folders until they get to a 353 WU. Then it is almost certain EUE. I lowered the clocked until the 353s go away, they run them at lower clocks. They are fine on the 511s and other difficult WUs.
So what is the secret to getting 10 or 11K out of a GTX280 without EUEs?
