Settings? I don't use my GTX460 for PhysX. All it does at the moment is fold.

voltage is stock. Cores are 850/1700/1800. I didn't OC the memory as it does nothing for folding performance. Fan speed changing doesn't seem to work at all.

Kruzin...

That "Black Widow" Score is sweet indeed........now if nv pumps out some Drivers that optimize Tri / Quad 480's you should be cracking 60K ;)

Intersting...just for comparison Arinoth my old Rig I just gave to my daughter "just" cracks P20K with:
E8400 @ 4.05 Ghz
2 x 2GB Mushkin Redlines 1000 Mhz
2 x Evga 9800GTX+ Sli
Evga 780i

hdvision

MK06 is yesterday....64bit run Vantage......

According to 3DMark Vantage, I seem to be getting relatively low scores compared to "similar systems."

Anyone got an idea as to why? Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Oh, yes, new to the forum. GREETINGS, EVERYONE!

It would appear I need to make this one post before I can post pics...so...pics to come...NOW.

Hmm..."similar systems" includes you ballas with the 980X', doesn't it...>.>

Would you guys recommend throwing in a 980X, or maybe quadfire with another 5970?
