We haven't been folding at all. Not Good.

I saw, in another thread, that you asked how to get the stats to show. Here are some of the generic stat things and if you want to know how to cusotmize them, here is the link.

Yea I have that voltage tuner however it doesn't currently support the 55nm cores
I used it a bit on my 65nm 260 c216 with good results but also had several crashes trying to add voltage. I'm so happy now with this 285 and was a step up for $60 from my 260.
I almost got 10k PPD out of this single 285 today alone

I just found it odd that my gpu liked the overclock at first, and then it didn't. I know it had something to do with the voltage tuner......
Something that might make you cringe....Two days ago when I reinstalled my drivers(don't ask why lol), the voltage tuner started up and put my voltage to under stock....by a lot....So I decided to test it with my overclock....didn't take one second for it to crash lol....
after reinstall: 1000mv
When I saw those numbers I lol'd quite a bit before I decided to test it

Yea.. it's a game really.. Shoot for what you want, tweak and most times you setting for whats stable not what you want. I can run FTW clocks on this 285 but honestly, the 2-10 fps it gets me are negliable
We wouldn't be trying for "the pursuit of performance" if we didn't BSOD, fry a piece of hardware here or there or others; it's part of the fascination we have with the hardware and theories
Your doing fine and again find what fits and is comfortable and always shoot for higher!
[BTW] Thanks for those last rep mate! They put me over the top for my 250th rep and 3 flames so I greatly appreciate it mate!

the techniques and ways of overclocking a video card are simple, it's just nice to know how others treat theirs and how they run their setup with what they are doing.......
I think just for the hell of it, I'm gonna get an overclock going without the voltage tuner, and then when I fold I will just use stock clocks and bump the shaders only like you are.....Although I had my shader and core unlinked........I still think the voltage tuner is not safe, and led to that bsod I had earlier. I mean evga does say any physical damage is not their fault....that only means they don't know how every card will respond....
Nickel suggested shooting for the FTW clocks, but I know I can run past them easily without any voltage changing.....So we shall see what it looks like

Sorry Berger.. I didn't mean to come off being a "teacher" so much as being the "sugguestor"
But yes, what your thinking is correct. Just because a strap is not stable in gaming or benchmarking doesn't mean it can't be stable for [email protected]
I run my strap for folding 2-3 times higher than I would gaming and honestly at the strap I'm on now for [email protected] if I even go into a game I crash with BSOD because the core and memory are not in-line with the strap I'm using. I have to typically revert back to stock for my gaming profiles and remember to bump it back up using RivaTuner.
As for the way of straps for [email protected] I use stock GTX 285 CLOCKS and bump only the shader to either 1620 or 1674.
Just for reference the 285's base shader strap is 1476, so I'm nearly 200mhz above stock.
For gaming, I just revert back to 285 stock settings and this thing handles everything I've thrown at it. I don't really OC this for gaming since again it handles what I want it to.

I haven't touched my clocks and I think i decided to just keep the same profile running at all times. My next shader strap artifacts only after a minute or so in ati tool, so it can't be too great for folding either.
