    I think it happened at the 6am E.T. stats update. Congratulations.

    Got the i7-5930k to 4.4 GHz at 1.25v, temps holding steady at around 60C. This is with an H110i GTX cooler. Will let it fold for a while and see if she's stable. GPU is a slothy 5770 for now.

    So Mark lasted almost ten years. I've lasted almost 2. We'll see how long Handruin's reign last.
    Great run at the top Coug, nice work.

    In the past few days my normal workstation has been having issues with my display adapters and folding at home. When I get home later in the evening and try using my system the monitor won't wake up even though the machine is up and running. I have to force a restart via the power button. When I check the windows event viewer I'm seeing several notifications of the following message: "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.". None of my stuff is overclocked (CPU and GPUs). I've not updated F@H in a while. The GPU drivers were updated a couple weeks ago. I did remove the EVGA Precision X software because it was behaving erratically and replaced it with MSI's Afterburner. I usually keep the fan speed curve pretty tight such that the GPUs don't exceed 60C while F@H is running.

    The other factor is I'm running Handbrake throughout the night and day at the same time. Maybe it's consuming too much CPU time? The strange thing is the systems runs all through the night with F@H and Handbrake churning away. When I checked on the machine in the morning it was fine. What I do notice is that those error message happen just after I was done using my system in the morning before heading to work. Almost as if the process of turning off the monitor causes some issue?

    edit: I also downloaded a recommended utility called memtestCL-1.00 and ran it against both GPUs to check for memory errors. No errors found on either GPU after 100 iterations of testing.

    I would try to revert back to the previous GPU driver version. Bugs in newer driver versions happen.

    I had oddities with the F@H client on my main computer (Asus Strix 970 GPU). Any time I would launch Picasa, it would cause the GPU client to start failing and then I would have to reboot the machine after an eventual lockup. Tried reinstalling the drivers 'Clean' but it didn't help. Ended up moving the GPU in my Plex server and it has been running trouble free 24/7 for several weeks now (fresh install of Win10 but without Picasa).

    Both Striker and Clocker pushing some great PPD for the team. Thanks to you both for your continued contributions!

    I'm back to folding, after a fashion. The Intel 510 my desktop is pushing isn't recognized by the folding client (I wonder if we'll see the GPUs.txt update again and add support for it?) but the CPU gets me a cool 1k PPD. That's five times as much as I was getting back when I was folding with a P4. I'm not making nearly enough points for it to be worth the power costs on my end unless I can figure out how to get GPU folding going on the integrated graphics. Mostly, right now I'm just doing it to stress test the machine by setting it to run at full-tilt.

    I paused folding about a week ago. My house was getting too hot and my electric bill was ~$150 last month.

    I have a cheapo Lenovo server at the office that randomly falls asleep for no apparent reason. Its power management is set to "high performance" in the BIOS and hibernate is disabled in Windows Server. Yet, every few days, the machine falls to sleep. Since this is our FTP server, it is quite annoying.

    It takes more time for the sleep state to happen when a session is left opened on the server. I've started a FAH client on it to test if it stops the hibernation from occuring. This is not a powerful system, so don't expect a high contribution from me out of this.

    I hope it will solve the problem.

    Possibly. Most of my machines are torn apart as part of an overhaul at the moment.

    I'd be folding if I had something that'd make it worth the energy cost. As it is only CPU folding isn't anything worth adding to the pool, it'll have to wait until if/when I build a desktop with a real GPU.

    I'm trying to keep my electric bills in check, so not going to start folding again for awhile.

    I've also been trying to keep utility bills in check. The rates have gone up a bunch in my area. Once it gets a little colder I can fold. My office has electric heat anyway so I may as well just offset some of it with my folding @ home heat.

    Totally understandable with regards to the cost of power. I justify it to myself that I just burn less propane in the current conditions. My logic fails in the summer when I pay again to cool the heat with A/C.

    Edited to add that at 12 cents per kWh and $1.59 per gallon of propane it's still basically twice as expensive to heat with electric via gpus/cpus as compared to burning propane in the forced air furnace, in my case.

    Going to try out CentOS to get a production boost this week.

    I see some recent activity from Coug and also Doug with his experimentation, in addition to strikers solid output.

    I've been contributing with one machine for awhile, except when I started having issues with nvidia drivers.
    When they sort out their driver issues, I'll start folding with my main machine while idle again.

    Looks like there may be a potential fix from Nvidia on the issue in this driver release version 376.48.

    I can confirm, at least for me, that version appears to be working fine.

    Same here. I've been able to run overnight without failure. I know it's been a while since I've folded but I was surprised at the estimated PPD around 850K.

    I'm running two Nvidia GTX 980s and occasionally an AMD R9 290X.

    Messing about with the NaCL client in Chrome. Silly thing estimates my PPD to be 40,449,400!

    My friend brought an RX480, he's folding under my account for us at least temporarily, I'll pay him for his additional power usage.

    Thanks for arranging the extra folding for the team. We're happy to have it.

    I'm curious about the average ppd of the RX 480 and also about the stability of the client when running on Polaris. I'd guess around 300,000ppd?

    I've seen some very low prices on the RX 480 in the past few weeks. Barely a difference with the RX 470 around here.

    My 480s have been rock solid folding on Win 7.

    Yes, around 300k points per day each. The blower version of the XFX 8GB model is down to $199 after $20 mail in rebate: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01H3P9CKI/
