Yes, they take a few days, but they will net you a ton of points if you complete it on time. In order to complete a 6904 on time, you have to have a TPF of 80 minutes or less and an upload time of under 45 minutes once it completes and this has to be uninterrupted (i.e. no down time AT ALL). If you have a TPF of exactly 80 min and an upload time of exactly 45 minutes, it would net you 336,070 points or 60,154 PPD. The 6904 WUs have a deadline of 5.6 days, if you finish after this mark, you will end up with about 1/10th of that amount in points. I found this using the bonus points calculator HERE
. Hope this helps you.

now and didn't before? That would explain why your clocks has to be lowered, my 460 can't do more than 880MHz on any WU (even standard ones) but my 560Ti had to lowered from 1000MHz to 980MHz to remain stable with the 7620-7622 WUs.
Actually, I was playing around with different drivers today, thinking that it had to be a driver issue, and found that I was right. I was using a very old driver (like 258.xx), so I updated to a driver that I have used in the past (285.62) and tried it again and it is working great. I've got it OCed to 915MHz and the temps are at 64C, so I'm happy with that.

I'm really sorry to hear this, sir, I wish I could help but I'm a total Linux n00b...On the up side, in 15 days it won't matter, bigadv will be gone for us >16 core processors anyway. But on a good note, I just dropped a 6903 for about 220k points!!!!!
(would have been for about 5k more, but it would have dropped for December, so I delayed the upload a little) so that should give us a little jump for the new year!!
Bad news, I picked up a 6901
so I won't have another hugeadv for a couple of days (if I get one then)...
