I will wait til Friday to send mine off, hopefully the 7950 is as good of a folder as the 7970.


That is unfortunate, hopefully the RMA process goes smoothly for you, good luck! 

 

For folding I doubt there would be much difference between a 7950, and a 7970.

Is it too early to say "wait til next year!"?

 

stickg1 hopefully that 7950 will do a good job.

Yeah it will certainly be much quieter! I might keep it and sell the 7970 when it returns. As long as performance is not underwhelming.

Anubis, I'll pm you when I get home, but I sold the 560ti and got a regular 560 so I can be competitive in wildcard instead of getting smoked in nvidia.

I got my 7950 up and running. I'm really impressed with it. I might just sell the 7970 when it gets back from RMA. This 7950 gets higher clocks, just enough to cover the missing shaders and they perform equally max clock vs max clock. Also its about 5 times quieter and runs 15C cooler. No more reference coolers for me!

stickg1 I see your 7950 is putting up some points. What kind of PPD is that 7950 getting?

 

HerkFE I know that you're off on a "road trip" but if you're watching is there anybody home that can reboot that machine of yours?

I'm getting 8K-10K just like the 7970 was getting. Only I dont get UNSTABLE_MACHINE errors every 3rd WU so it should do much better.

I also have a GTX 560 (non-ti) that folds 24/7 and gets 25-28K PPD. I got a it a few days ago, would be a pretty dominate card for the Wildcard category.

Ah those pesky UNSTABLE_MACHINE errors. mad.gif

 

I know buried in this 500 page biggrin.gif TC Manual it says you can only fold one component for one team except as a temporary folder.

 

But whenever 5-Bits needs a Wildcard replacement you'll be top on my list. specool.gif

I'm getting the UNSTABLE_MACHINE error again. It can't be the GPU because I set it to stock clocks and jacked the voltage all the way up. It has to be my CPU or memory, or a background process throwing it off. I reset CPU and memory to default and will see if it still happens. Getting a little frustrated TBH mad.gif

No matter what drivers I try, whether im on stock settings will all my components or not, even tried updating and rolling back FAHclient versions. I still get UNSTABLE_MACHINE. Sorry to disappoint. I guess its back on the hunt for an AMD folder.

Sorry to hear that your problems can't be fixed.
