At what speed were you getting 85k PPD? I believe I can get about 63-65k at 4.4ghz with smp 12. You should add your findings to the PPD database to help others fine tune their systems.

Unfortunately people choose to believe what they have read and repeated it as if it is fact, rather than test it and determine it for themselves. It has been shown and proven over and over again that memory speeds and timings do make a difference with folding but still people do not know. Any way if I was you I would drop your OC to somewhere between 4.4Ghz and 4.46Ghz drop down to 6Gb of ram get the best speed / timings you can and go from there. I can run mine at 4.6Ghz but I get allot better performance at 4.38Ghz
Ok I'll try fine tuning the memory, I sometimes need the full 18gb for work though, so I'm reluctant to take it out. I found an interesting correlation with vcore though

My old settings:
4.6GHz - 23x200 1600-9-9-9-27 1.5VCore, 1.66VDram, 1.4VQPI - 28 mins/frame

The settings I've been testing with:
4.27GHz - 32x133 1066-9-9-9-27 1.5VCore, 1.64VDram, 1.35VQPI - 33 mins/frame
4.27GHz - 32x133 1066-9-9-9-27 1.45VCore, 1.64VDram, 1.35VQPI - 30 mins/frame
4.27GHz - 32x133 1066-9-9-9-27 1.4VCore, 1.64VDram, 1.35VQPI - 24 mins/frame
4.27GHz - 32x133 1066-9-9-9-27 1.375VCore, 1.64VDram, 1.35VQPI - 23 mins/frame

@ 1.35V I wasn't stable

Yes I know I've been using high vcores, this chip really isn't the best, temps are mid 50's even with the 1.5 VCore however.

Has anyone seen this before? My expectation was that once you were stable performance shouldn't be affected by vcore as long as temps were in check.

You are using a fairly low QPI Voltage and the higher QPI voltages will directley affect temps. But they will also give you more stable memory. I use between 1.4V and 1.6V QPI depending on speed / timings and room temps, and 1.4 to 1.42 Vcore when running 4.4Ghz to 4.46 Ghz. on the 980's

Thats 20k PPD more thatn the average 65K PPD @ 4.4ghz. Thats sounds like a lot just by changing timings and running Ubuntu. Im not trying to start anything. Just want to understand how this is possible.

The new Linux 64bit client is allot more effiecent than the Windows client.

I read the thread and its interesting. Can you get similar results by running bigadv in vm? I think Ill give it a try.

I do not know that there is a VM that willl recognize and utilize 12 threads. If I am not mistaken 8 is the max. I do believe a Virtual Box will recognize 12 though. Ubuntu 10.10 can be installed fairly easy alongside windows though using the provided installer at the Ubuntu site.

You can get it at this link http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download where it says if you are running Windows.

Interesting, I'd been nervous to push QPI so high as I hadn't seen many go above 1.4. Any idea on why raising vcore would be negatively affecting my ppd though?

I have no Idea why. I have 2 - P6T-E motherboards and they do not do that. The only thing I can think of is heat, I do know that my i7's do not like heat and will slow down with heat. But other than that I do not know. I also know that my P6T's will not OC as well with the 970's and 980's as my P6X58's do and they are slower at the same Ghz settings than the P6X58's with the 970's and 980's. I also have a Rampage II Gene that does really well with the 970's and 980's. The P6T's did the best with my 920's. It is strange how different motherboards preform with different processors. But your P6T appears to do very well with your CPU.

Try setting your CPU to Extreme OC Memory my guess is it will say QPI between 1.4v and 1.6v but running high QPI voltage does create heat. I have also found that if you can keep your temps under control It can make a pretty big difference in memory speeds and settings and make a difference in time frames.
