My System Specs

Default Just started...

I've been wanting to get this machine of mine folding since I learned what folding is.
My father bought this for me as a gift... to help me with my art/design stuff.
He has been suffering with cancer for about 6 years.
First he had it... then they got rid of it... then it came back again...
He's stopped taking treatments and is trying his best to get through, but it's only a matter of time.

I'm feeling compelled to do this... to try and help.
Not sure how much help it'll really be, but I want to do my part.
I don't have much money to get more hardware, or pay huge electric bills though so I'll likely only be contributing a very small part.

I've got my gtx275 working right now running at stock settings and 80% fan.
Temp is around 67c which seems to be ok.
Once I'm comfortable running this I'll work on getting my i7 crunching away too.

Sorry to hear about your Father.

Welcome to the Fold.

I decided to pause the WU and up my card to FTW speed.
FahMon is showing it 29% finished with approx 1hr30mins left... does that sound about right?
How far should I push my gtx275 for folding?
My highest stable OC so far is 760/1620/1280

The tpf (time per frame) will vary from one WU to another.

For folding you want to push those shaders as high as possible. My 275s with stock HSFs are clocked 680/1660/1180. If you do so, be very careful of the temps - my fans are running at 75%.

My 3 275s are folding 768s too: 8769, 8887 and 8847 ppd.

Very good temps.

Everest Ultimate is showing Motherboard and Northbridge temps @ 48c.
How hot should these be getting using just the GPU client?

Yes, because you are pushing your GPU at 100% usage.
