EUE limit exceeded problem
I know there is some information about that on the forum, but I guess I am not the sharpest crayon in the box cuz I can't figure out where the file I am supposed to delete is.

And I find this annoying because my task is completed at 100%.

Alright guys, I took out my pencil sharpener and figured it out myself... Thanks tho... We will meet again when my next problem arises :ph34r:

You might have to turn the gpu client off, but all you have to do for the most part is open FAHmon, and right click on the stalled client and select "view client files"

Delete the folder "work".

If it's still messing up, then delete:


You can delete the log files too, if you like.

I wouldn't suggest deleting any more files than that... I think the rest are necessary.

Question: Are you running Vista? Was the stalled work unit a 353?

I am running win 7 RC.

I don't quite remember what the work unit was. It was in the 300 and based on the fact my GPU only ever did 511 and 384, I guess it was the later.

Edit: Why ?

Perineum September 30, 2009 02:52 PM

Seems to be a bug with Vista, the 780 chipset, and the 353 work units. They stall, like you described.

I saw you had a 790 chipset, was wondering.....

The mobo plays a role in folding ?

Perineum September 30, 2009 03:10 PM

Well, GPU folding eats up a bit of CPU time, as you've noticed and when it doesn't get as much as it likes then GPU folding suffers.

The CPU and GPU can only communicate via the motherboard....

Ya I know that, but I thought all PC performed the same with the same CPU, same GPU(all things being equal), even if the mobo was is different.

For the most part, yeah... there would be miniscule differences, but nothing worth worrying about.

However, a hardware bug would be different. They would just change one bit on Vista, or the workunit, or SOMETHING and it would be back to normal...
