My System Specs


Okay, I was having difficulty keeping PPD up with the new 12.11 drivers for AMD. 7950 dropped to 1K ppd, and somehow, core#2 on the GTX295 wasn't folding properly, and was only getting about 2K PPD. My CPU was also only doing about 1K PPD, so a grand total of 10K.

I uninstalled all the drivers (Nvidia and AMD), rolled back to 260.99 and 12.10, removed V7 client, and installed GPU Tracker V2.

So far I've got one SMP instance running at about 9K PPD, and 2 gpu instances running at 7K PPD, for a total of 23K PPD. The 7950 is currently not folding, as it seems to draw too much from the CPU for what it actually spits out.

If I have time I may transfer it to the HTPC for the time being just so I can at least get an extra 6K PPD out of it.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
