Some not so good news to go along with it. The card I received from RMA folded on me. BFG is real good about addressing it as they quickly sent a prepaid FedEx tracking label.
Another machine with two GTS250's started throwing blue screens. I am in the process of diagnosing one card at a time.
Thanks, that one slipped up on me as I am having a lot of issues with hardware. I keep mixing up cards so I can diagnose one in the house. Folding on Graphics cards is not ready for prime time yet. Neither is the SMP client but hope is just around the corner. Systems that have been humming along nicely are hanging and doing all sorts of weird stuff. Still, I am keeping the faith and the hardware running.
Yea, there are some new Work Units out there. I am doing maintenance on these systems to keep them running. Installed the new nVidia drivers on two machines. Cleaned out dusty fans and heatsink. Working well for the past day.
I am glad I still have these two 9800GTX+ card to work with while executing the RMA on the bad ones.
Power Supplys are getting cheaper and I even see Corsair TX series in the local Best Buy. I may pick one up to have as a diagnostic spare.
Crucial came through today. I received three matched pair of 1 Gb sticks (6GB DDR2)as replacements for the stuff I sent back.
All I have on the GPU clients are the 1888 ppd WUs. It must be important science....
May his Memory be Eternal.
I was going to post how my farm was humming along when the router threw a fit in the middle of the night and lost the internet. 70% of the farm was stalled waiting for work. S simple router reboot fixed the internet issue.
I have bee busy trimming the tree. The 70 foot Catalpa tree on the corner of my house. Doing most of it with a rope saw and an extension pole saw.
The whole country is a little quiet right now.
Yea, I am heating my bedroom with two dual card systems. Winter makes sitting at the computer so much more inviting.
