So I wake up this morning and my computer had crashed. I wonder if my clocks on the card aren't stable and made my computer crash. There goes a couple of hours of folding. I'm trying to get [email protected] to automatically start up when the computer turns on, but I can't figure it out.

put a shortcut in a folder called 'startup' that is already in your program files menu. it automatically executes that shortcut on log in

I think I might have a good idea why my rig crashed. Since then, it has crashed a few more times. I have noticed that it only does it when working on the 768pt wu's. I also have noticed that they stress the gpu more since temp increases when working on them.

Going from an 1888 to a 768, temp immediately went from a constant 40°c to 44°c and slowly climbed upto 45°c. I'm thinking that it has to do with gpu temp and possibly the shaders become unstable at a little higher temp. I know 44°c isn't a lot, but everyone says that the shaders are very sensible to temp. Since I have them overclocked fairly high, the increase in temp might make them unstable?

This could be a result of having a 80°F ambient temp in my room. When I did all of my preliminary testing, it was around 68°F in my room. Just a few minutes ago I turned the AC on in my house and gpu temp dropped to 40°c in a matter of minutes.

I'm probably going to drop the core and memory clocks a bit to reduce heat if this continues to occur. There really is no need to have them clocked that high 24/7, but it makes me feel good knowing that I can.

Yeah my GPU is super tempremental with temperatures

Ive crashed several times lately with the GPU OC'd and my room getting to 35*C already (GOD DAMN DESERT ITS GETTING HOT ALREADY!!!!!) and we don't have the AC on yet since my parents are liek *omg is so nice outside*

Anyhow the GPU is at stock and has been going great for the past few days

Mine crashes when I'm away from it. It ran fine over night and I go to school for 2hrs and it had crashed while I was gone. I lowered the clocks on the card and just left the shader up. I don't think it's temperature since it's 72°F in my room and the card is at 40°c.

Besides the random crashes it's doing pretty well. It gets over 8k on the 768's and around 7800 on the 1888. Unfortunately I have been getting a few 511's recently and they kill my ppd. They drop my ppd to the 6k range.

Yeah those 511 units drop me to 5500 ppd

everything else, im 6,800 to 8,000 PPD which is nice, most of them have been right around 7k (the 1880 i think)

Are most productive day yet, 18 wu's for 14,430 pts.

Check it out, I have a little spreadsheet for our team. I also have one for the other team but I didn't include the amount of wu's. I made them in office 07 and it wouldn't let me upload that type of file so I had to convert to the older format. I haven't even looked at it.

Uh-oh, we might be dropping to 4th place very soon

Any problems or did you just need to get your game on?

Yeha my rig froze up three times in the past week... every 4th day or so it seems to just stop working... not sure why but I think core 0 has stability problems because I removed all folding off core 0 (originally core 0-1 would do GPU and core 1-2 would do SMP, core 3 would be open for music/other stuff) and i shifted it so core 0 is the open core and its improved a lot lately.

time will tell.

Mine still crashes randomly. I'm pretty sure it's because of my shader clocks. It only seems to happen when it's really hot. Today the AC was off and someone decide to close the door in my room. You can imagine how hot it gets with two pc's in one room both folding.
