I'm wondering if it's worth my trying to set up a VM for my folding before this. I average around 30k ppd on my i7 920, will it be that much of a boost?

Sorry, not likely I'll be able to participate. I was hoping to have a 2nd system ready for dedicated folding by May but it's not going to happen in time; can't afford the m/b and cpu right now.

My existing system still has a problem I haven't been able to locate although I suspect the m/b. Plus, I find it inconvenient to start a folding project and having to either suspend folding or wait to do other tasks or gaming (and why I will, eventually, build a dedicated folding rig).

Keys sent to those who requested them from myself.

Jaydee: Have you tried Furmark or something similar? If you can get errors with a program like that then maybe Evga will help you out.

Crandall: If you are folding in Windows, the VM is not really worth the effort. Windows Bigadv is fine. If you want to fold Linux, I think the SR-2 guys might have more insight, but I think the 920 you have is fine with Windows bigadv.

Agreed. When -bigadv was only available for linux clients, I ran the VM. But since it's been released for the windows clients, I've run that.

Aye.
EVGA actually had me run their own version called "EVGA OC scanner" as well but neither gave me an error.

Try downclocking the card. I had a GTX260 SC that would throw NANs left right and center until I clocked it down below ref. speeds.

Good to know. I'll leave it as is then.

Thanks SugarJ :)

Ya I've tried just about everything I could think of.
Slight overclock
Slight underclock
Re-downloaded the SMP program and re-install
Furmark and OC Scanner stable
I found a program like Memtest that tests GPU RAM and it was fine
Every driver version that works on GTX 570
Format HDD and reinstall OS
Switched PSU
More things I can't think of off the top of my head...
Temps are fine
Used to get NAN's on about half of the work units so I'd get 10,000 PPD out of it but for the last week or so every work unit gets NAN's just as the WU starts to process.

Edit: Everything else runs fine it's just folding it doesn't like. I've seen nothing on any forum that suggests it is a GTX 570 problem so it seems it is just something about my card = lucky me
