If thats the case, I wouldn't complain, thats decent numbers for sure, and near the same clocks as my EVGA 9800GT.

Nah, this 8600GT was send to me straight from XFX. I got it before it reached the store shelves, a loooong time ago. But anyways: I don't think this is right.... The 9800GX2 and 8600GT run on a 680i board in slot 1 and 3.
I think, somehow, while setting up all three clients something went wrong. I'm pretty sure that that's the case. As it looks right now, the second GX2 client is doing 1390PPD(on a 1888), the first GX2 is doing 4797PPD(on a 1888) and the 8600 is doing 4989 (on a 768). I start GPU 1, then GPU 2 on the GX2 and then I start the 8600GT.

I think shortcut 'GPU 2' somehow starts up the 8600GT and shortcut '8600GT' starts up the second GPU client on the 9800GX2. Little complicated ey? But I've seen it before. It happens that the second GPU on the GX2 does less points than the first. Who knows... i'm still racking up 12K PPD on this rig and that is fairly stable!

Below is a pic of the above described issue. Let's see if we can find more results out there....

Yeah , perhaps you got the wrong directory listed for your GPU's.
I did that too when I set up Storm Force....I put one of my CPU Clients as a GPU.
I had a heart attack when my precious GTS250 was doing 796ppd....

Probably something like that at least for you,

Nope, that's not it. It is the first thing I checked :) It has something to do with the startup of the clients.... dunno what it is though....

Hmmm yeah thats the only troubleshooting I can really do with folding considering how much of a rookie I still am.
One of these folding Guru's need to stop by my place and sit down with me and this VM ware/SMP stuff lol!
My wife makes a mean Canaloni , and I've got about 100wines from every part of the globe lol!

No idea why it is showing that PPD for that Card Dr, Still, if you are managing to crank out such good PPD then I wouldn't touch it for now lol.
If its all running on the same machine, could it have some compatibility issue that is messing up FAHmon/Spy????? (the only way to know would be to pop the other cards out and see, which sucks)

Regards,
ST

Probably better ones than I have,
Or, like some wines long past, the kind that can also be used to Degrease an Engine?
:)
I'm a white wine fan, there is a chemical in Reds that gives me problems.

I'm Austrian.

My ex-wife, though being a pain in the you know where, actually made me discover those wines from the Alsace region in France.
