9800GT failing WU's right away? - Page 3

Will try that later tonight. Is it possible for a card to be fine for everything else but not folding? If so, I might just sell it and put the money towards another 470.

I restarted the client before I went to sleep and it finished a WU fine but then failed another 5 (all 10506) after that. I restarted it again before I left this morning and it failed 5 in a row (10513 is the last one, not sure on the first 4). Is it worth putting it into my other rig and seeing if it has the same problems?

I actually didn't know about FAH Tracker until I read your post. I figured I'd give it a try and so far, it seems to have fixed it. It's done 76% of a 10515 so I'll have a better idea if it actually is fixed later. Hopefully I'll wake up to find no failed WU's.

Is there any disadvantage to using FAH Tracker over the console clients? It seems like it'd be pretty handy to be able to have all the clients working through 1 program.

that's why i use it. it's so simple and works very well. can do SMP folding and GPU folding up to 8 GPU's. Not sure if it's better than the console clients, I wonder that too, if there are any disadvantages to it.

I love it.

"NANs detected on GPU" always indicates a heat problem with my 9800GTX+. Stock core clock is 760 and I have to drop it to about 710-715 to get rid of the problem.

Try downclocking with RivaTuner (since it links the clocks for you) by about 30-40 Mhz and see how that goes.

Also, different projects will work the card differently so don't assume it's working unless your card has crunched a wide range of projects successfully.

I definitely have to agree, it really couldn't be any easier to setup. I'm still using the console clients for everything else though, might switch everything over eventually.

17 WU's have finished with no failures yet, I think I'm good to go
