Followup: I threw in the 9600 GSO. Installed Nvidia drivers. Windows recognized both, benchmarks on 6850 was still the same. I open up the v7 F@H client, set up the two GPUs. The Nvidia runs fine, but the ATI isn't running at all. I messed around with some of the advanced settings with CUDA and Opencl flags, but never get it to run at the same time. I during it I got some display errors so I just pulled the Nvidia. Oh well.

I haven't tried running mismatched cards before, or ATI, so sadly I have no help for you raven! @mountainman: right on, you're one of the few okies I've seen on here, so I guess that means there are more deals left for us!
@Grizli: You just passed me for second place! Good job!

Thanks noaht!

Speaking of projects... I haven't seen bigadv projects in forever... did they get away with them?

So, another issue. Using the new v7 client. When I run SMP it runs fine (TPF about 2 min 20 sec on this current project) by itself, GPU runs fine by itself. When I run them at the same time, the GPU runs at normal speed and SMP basically stops. Still running but it got about 2% in an hour. I tried changing the environmental variables (BROOK_YIELD, FLUSH_INTERVAL, etc), with no avail. I've been looking around for any other solutions but haven't found anything. Anyone else have a problem like this and find a solution?

CPU: Phenom II 960t x6 3.3ghz
GPU: HD 6850
Windows 7

Raven: its usually because the GPU client needs one cpu core for itself. Do you have SMP set to run on all six cores? I don't run a CPU/GPU setup so I dont know if you can run smp -5 and leave one core for the gpu or if you have to do it in multiples of 2.

I'll have to try that out when I get home. From what I remember seeing I think it has to be multiples of 2. If it runs better bumping it down to 4 cores I'll have to see how much that drops the "PPD" (since I've heard the v7 PPD in the client isn't the most accurate). Kind of sad how slow the ATI cards are these days. My SMP client can put out around 9-11k/day and the HD 6850 can only put out around 6k. My 4 year old NVIDIA card was putting out 4.5k!

So, even though it says multiples of 2, it can go for 5 cores (It doesnt leave a core open. It just runs at around 80%). Fired up the GPU slot and the cpu kept going! Dropped it by about 2.5k PPD on the WU I was testing it on, but the GPU 6k makes up for it.

Thanks! Though I had to shut off half of the equipment for summer... and no more bigadv come in on 16 core boxes, so I shut one of them off as well.

So I finally figured out my problem. The over clock on my PC was causing the instability with f@h software. I was running my Phenom x6 3.4Ghz chip at 3.81Ghz and it was crashing the folding software. Have been running it at 3.71Ghz for a week now and managed to produce 75k in points for the last week.
Now if I can just get a 2nd machine online, I can get back to 100k a week. See you at the top!

Oh, and I did just pass the 2M mark today.

Congrats Robin!

I just spun up a new server with dual opteron 6174's. Interested to see what kind of ppd they'll produce, and see how long I can keep it out of production so I can play with it!

Here are some samples of ppd

bonus calc. to play with to see how your ppd could change with different tpf's and different wu's
