Just a suggeston: not really answering your question but this is not the greatest project to be running NVidia cards. For not that much more than the cost of your cooling system you can buy an ATI card that does a lot more work. Then use the NVidia card where it crunches efficiently

......sorry to sound kinda dumb but I'm currently running an Nvidia GTX260 (216sp's), on a slight overclock - would an equivalent ATI card be more effective/efficient? Any recommendations? Thanks!

..that's a bit worrying, becoz I've only got 5 tasks...4 x CPU & 1x CUDA...any ideas ? I'm about to run dry on the quad...


(Edit)
AAARRRGGGHHHH!!! very RED face & sheepish grin...someone (no.1 son) pressed 'show only active wu's' button...

Apologies ! The heat is getting to me... Where's that bloody malt...

Post:
Can't help agreeing, this 12WU/core limit is a pain in the butt - why the limit? S@H allows a 10 day buffer, even given the number of regular SNAFU's they get. Even raising it to just 30/core would be more manageable - until you get the download scheduler problem sorted, we the grunts(the poor sods on the receiving end of Travis' whims), are gonna continue to run out of work, dropping RAC, etc, which is just gonna cause more frustration! How many more crunchers do you want to leave the project in disgust?? Get it sorted, PLEASE!!
