CPU & 2 GPU folding?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
recently got a spare nvidia card into sig rig for physx, want to start folding on it too. Do I need a dummy plug? should I stop folding on ati card and just do cpu and nvidia card? Do you think my psu could handle folding on cpu & 2 gpus? thoughts? thanks in advance

You can try this flag instead of a dummy plug -forcegpu nvidia_g80

Yes stop folding on the ATI card till the new client is released and fold on the CPU & Nvidia GPU.

That PSU is plenty go for it.

Are you using GPU2 or GPU3 client?

If its overclocked put it back to stock settings then start moving up slowly if it isn't crashing.

Try a program called GPU tracker V2. It will allow you to fold by using multiple gpu's.

Its probably stable for gaming but not folding, try downclocking it a little.
