Except if nothing else blows them up, what's the point?
If I fold, I'll fold and see if its stable, if I use it for another CUDA application, I'll do that (eg. Make it transcode 5 movies at once on repeat 10 times or something), if I use it for gaming, I'll game, if I use it for PhysX, fluidmark it is.
Complaining a card can't run Furmark is like complaining the V8 in a Ford ute can't hit 10k RPM without exploding.
