Then it would fail in the middle of the second WU.... [maybe i had some sort of the 296 driver still with its claws in there]
So last night i upgraded back to the 296 [to test this out]
Made sure the monitor did not sleep, then manually turned off my monitor and went to bed.
I woke up to the GPU 30% threw its 3rd WU and crankin!
Next FaT i will have much better numbers now!
Thank you Juano for your help
