My System Specs

Default Is this Normal?

Hey guys,
So a few times now my Asus 260 has snagged a 1888 pointer, and I've noticed (when I'm home at least) that all my clocks go down , i.e shaders normally at 1267 go down to 600 etc etc.
I know this happened with my GTS250, and an install of nVidia 182.50 drivers corrected that. However, those are the drivers currently running my 260.
Anyone have any idea if this is normal or if there is something I can do to correct it?
Manually set all the Clocks in my Asus Profile?

Thanks in Advance,

ST

I've never seen / heard about that. Odd.

I do know that the 1888 pointers are folded in a rythmic fashion. Maybe that's it.

I've looked at some FAH forum support, and when I get home I'm gonna kick the Screen Saver off because that apparently can force the VC into a Powersaving 2D mode (I.e. Half Clocks).

However, I think I lost that WU to an EUE or something because it was due an hour after I left the house, and it never showed up on Kako.
That or my Rig Deep Sixed lol!

Thanks Charlie,
Hopefully I can get it sorted out, because I really don't like the idea of a 7k card folding at 3k.

BTW, tonight hopefully is the Rebuild on the Folding Rig :)

Always shut-off the screen saver. I manually close my monitors.

As for updates, those are done every 3 hours, next one being done at 13:00.

Roger Wilco on that one Charlie...funny thing is, it never once affected the 9800GT...but since I got the new one in there, I guess I'll have to set it when I'm home.
2 Days Productivity lost lol!!!

I suppose I have to get used to no "Main" Computers and 2 'Folding' Computers these days and set them both accordingly.
lol

So while folding you shut off the monitor? That doesn't affect anything?

Well, 3 updates since I've been at work, no 1888 pointer tallied , and production is much lower than normal for this time of day (yes, I keep track sadly) .
I have this sinking in the pit feeling its either stuck, not working right, or something possibly worse :(

Oi, and I've got another 2 hours before I can leave to find out.

I also noticed on my GTX260 that my score went down too. I dunno if this is GTX 260 related ...
