Gpu + smp

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Finally got my 9600GSO in today and setup GPU folding. Everything seems to be working okay except for one thing. The SMP client went from 6,900PPD on a 6067 down to 5,300. I figured it would take a hit, but not that much. Is there something else I need to set that wasn't covered in the GPU guide here? I'm using the GPU2 client if that makes any difference. GPU-Z says PhysX and DirectCompute are disabled while OpenCL and CUDA are enabled. Do I need to make a change there?

Q6600 @ 3.2GHz 8x400
2x512 + 2x1 PC2-6400 running at 800 5-5-5-18
EVGA 9600GSO 384meg w/96SP 1566/620
Gigabyte P35-DS3L
SP Pro SP3.

Temps on the 9600GSO are 63C with a fan speed of 61% (set to auto in EVGA Precision). Does that sound about right? The last time I had an nVIdia card this high end was a Diamond Viper 770 right after they were released. I've basically been an ATI person since them until this card.

Any and all advice greatly appreciated.

Addendum: When OC'ing a gpu for folding, what makes the most impact. I see that you link the Shader Clock and Core Clock together, but do you also want to raise the memory clock?

Shader clock has the most influence on folding. What I have been doing is is leaving the other 2 clocks stock and bumping the shader clock till it fails a work unit then back it down a strap at a time till it no longer trashes work units.

63C is fine, and bump those Shaders as high as it will go!

I can't say whether it's good for that specific card or not, but I'm Folding at 80-85°C most of the time, so looks good to me.

Shader clock is the only important factor. You can unlink the shader and core clock, and can underclock the core/mem to see if you can reach another shader strap.
