Downloaded, installed and completed a work unit already.
I'm getting about 2400PPD (according to FahMon) on a 8800GTX on a Q6600 at 3.37 at 90% with dual SMPs.

Well, in that case.....

I am at about 4700 PPD with JUST the GTX 280 folding and no other client running.

Which WU is the new client accessing?

WELCOME D-H!!!

That is very interesting.

Now, what are the load temps on those GTXs and what is the 8800GTX cooler?

Thanks.
I still can't figure out how to check my load on the GTX, but temp is sitting at 70C on a stock cooler with stock clocks.

EDIT: Also I forced the fan to be on 100% all the time.
I don't care about noise.

Best part about this is it only uses a small amount of CPU power. The ATI tool is a CPU hog for little reward.

Folding using my 8800GTS 320Mb at stock speeds. Load temp is 55C using a Thermalright HR-03. We'll see what kind of numbers that one posts.

I was wondering when the client would be out. I'll give it a go when my new card arrives.

Try RivaTuner and GPU-z.
