My System Specs

Default 353 pointers failing on GTX260

353 pointers failing on GTX260.

Yeah. That's right. And it's pissing me off. I'm losing up to 7K a day right now.

I've updated the drivers...

Deleted everything in the work folder...

Reinstalled the gpu folding app.

Ran G80memtest, nothing. (edit: for 1000 rounds at as much memory as I could allocate)

Fan runs at 85%, temps not out of line

(edit) I even have my card underclocked to 500mhz rather than stock 576 (card is actually a "OC" version and runs at 590mhz)

This has been going on for weeks.

ONLY the 353's fail. Used to be that I delete 'em a few times and it would keep going. Now every hour I'm having to babysit the machine and productivity is nil.

I BELIEVE when I was running Windows 7 RC on the machine it did all work units perfectly fine.

Tips?

Tips? None.

Same here. GTX260.

And folding is baby-sitting. Unfortunately. Fortunately, it used to be much worse than that.

Could be just a bad batch.

Just checked my two rigs and they're running fine. (275, 285).

Could it be a driver version issue? (185.85 on one of mine and 190.62 on the other).

I messed with the drivers, updated to newer ones and now the 353's are failing most of the time... (on vista)
its also hotter right now than its been all summer so wasn't sure if its driver or heat related..

Well I moved a 295 over into the XP machine, so its got 3x295's in it now and no problems. so I guess it was the drivers/vista.

1. Neither Kruzn nor Jack managed to have all 4 cores folding at once, and you managed 6?
2. Where did you buy that K9A2 Platinum?
3. Are you using the HX1000W for all 3 295s?

yup 6 are working perfect (with xp) I could try for 8 but then I don't have a case that will hold it all.

the K9A2 I got from OnHop

and yes, the HX1000 is running the whole show.

DON'T OC your CARD! Recently the 353's haven't liked my gtx 260's when they are OC'D (didn't seem to matter much before, so I think its the batch).
