All of these work units end in computational errors on my computer. Running Win7 Home with a AMD 5870 card.

Wow - impressive stuff to say the least! Thanks for posting all the links - it will keep me busy for awhile as I explore...

Read the "assimilators not running thread". Also check the server status on the main page.

Thank you MrS (Extra Terrestrial Apes) for summarizing. Your idea makes far more sense than the current limit of 6 work units per (cpu) core. I have the exact problem you described. Because of the physical size of the 5970, the only computer case that the monster would fit into has a single core processor (old MB) allowing only 6 work units at a time. With a dual GPU video card - unless everything works perfectly at MW - I run out of WUs in +/- 9 minutes.....

I have set DNETC as my backup project on the machine and most days it does more DNETC work than MW!

I think your idea is great! I also vote for you for president!!!

No one is getting any work units - check out the server status link on the home page. Work units ready to send = o and has been that way for a day or so now...

Collatz had some intermittent connection problems yesterday - I had the same thing happen to me and I have had Collatz as a backup for over 3 weeks and it runs flawlessly.

I think the holiday weekend messed with more than humans.......

Based on what is being discussed, I will be interested to see what happens after I install an ASUS RampageII mobo w/3 slots and 3 Sapphire 5870s in an Antec 902 case (has 8 expansion slots on back). So far with 2 5870s I have not exceeded 75C on either card and most times the bottom card is only 5C cooler than the top card..... They are currently in an Antec 300 case - lots of airflow with all the fans.

I think the key is that these cards pick up air IN the case but exhaust OUTSIDE the case - it can't hurt!

Paul - I think you will really enjoy the ATI cards - they operate smoothly and crank! The only time I sing the blues is when MW goes down and Collatz gets overloaded.....I have a few nice CPUs but not enough....

Paul - saw your post - FYI I have 2 machines with 2 5870 cards - I am getting about 450-460k daily in MW and about 350-370k in Collatz (when MW is down).

A big thank you - I am now able to run AQUA at the same time the natve app is crunching!

Thank you both Travis and Anthony (ie Mr. GPU)!!!

ATI cards that I have are 4870 and 5870 varieties - they work. I THINK that 4850 and 5850 cards are double precision as well but don't quote me on that...

No - it won't get any work with the optimized app (w/app info file) in place - that has remained constant on the 3 machines here at the house. I haven't tried adding the app info file and modifying it to work with the new server app but I will be....

I have uninstalled the optimized MW and downloaded the server version. There is no app file so I can't make the wus run the way my machine produces the best results.

My original command line was >n2 p3 b-1<

2 wus per GPU / high priority / no release of CPU

I would like the flexibility to set these same parameters - is there an app info file that will work with the server app?

I read your post earlier - I guess I am a bit resistant to losing ANY CPU crunch time to MW - I have MW for my GPUs and AQUA which is a multithreading CPU project. Unless AQUA has all 4 (or 8) cores pretty much to itself, it just will not crunch. I guess I have no real choice in the matter which stinks!

No joy Travis. It is 10:31 am central time - just suspended all other work and tried updating on 3 machines here at the house - I'm starving for wus....

Confirmed Travis - I just used up my last MW wu and even though the server board shows all green and wu available - I can't get any.
20) Message boards : Number crunching : Midgrade GeForce Cards - what temps OK running MW CUDA (Message 33285)

Post:
2 PNY 9600GSO cards in one machine - they run (without any aftermarket software for fan control) between 72-85 C. EVGA has a program called Precision that allows you to monitor (real time) fan speed , GPU core clock, etc. I usually load this and keep the GPUs around 65-70 C. (SETI)

2 EVGA 9800GTX+ cards - stock temps are 80-90 C - set fan speed to keep GPUs in the 65-75 C range. (GPU Grid and SETI)

4 EVGA GTX280 cards - stock temps are 80-90 C - set fan speed to keep GPUs in the 65-75 C range. (GPU Grid and Milkyway)

For comparison:

2 Visiontek (ATI) 4870x2 - 80-90C stock 70-75 with CCC

2 Visiontek (ATI) 4870 (512mb) - 80-90C stock 70-75 with CCC

1 Saphire (ATI) 4870 (1024mb) - 80-90C stock 70-75 with CCC
