Yea thats a ridiculously good shader overclock and u can get it in the Nvidia Beta drivers theres always new ones i been using these drivers for almost 3 weeks now and cant complain. The only thing i see is your cores running pretty hot at 61 man i so wish i could hit 2000 on my shaders i dont think i can but today ill test it out when i get those 511's

Thats a 353 point WU...I have had a stable shader OC on those, and then a 511 point WU comes along and spoils the party.

Still a nice chip you got there....keep a close on on the 511s though

Trying a few things before I decide whether I should RMA my EVGA 9800GTX+ SC. It runs games fine but it's not so good at folding for the last few months. I lowered the core clock speed from 771 all the way down to 680mhz and was able to run a few work units to completion. Others simply refuse to run and crap out randomly with EUE and NAN errors.

I ran OCCT 3.01 on it and the graphics test found 525 errors. Is it safe to assume this card has problems and should be RMA'd?

Run OCCT on your other GPUs and if no errors are found I would RMA the 9800GTX+.

Out of the blue my 8800GT started to throw out UNSTABLE_MACHINE errors and when I tested it using the OCCT GPU testing tool, it found over 15,000 errors. I tested my other video cards and OCCT did not find any errors at all.

It can run games and benchmarks just fine but it refuses to fold at all.

I have gotten errors in F@H like yourself, and it turned out to be a driver issue. However, I did not see if the errors also occurred in OCCT. Might be something to consider though. Try uninstalling the drivers, run driver cleaner in safe mode, and then re-install.
