Does it say it really fixes folding or is just a new driver?
This is GeForce Hot Fix driver version 376.48 that addresses the following:

Workaround to fix incorrect [email protected] work units.
Fixed random flashes in Just Cause 3.
Fixed some issues that could lead to Battlefield 1 crash
Fixed SLI texture flickering in Battlefield 1.
Fixed corruption in Wargame: Red Dragon game.

Don't use the new drivers.
373.06 is current for folding.

------

Anandtech will probably beat us by 500 million points.Which is ok!

We are going to refresh this team , we have started already !

Thank you to all the new folders !! ( I have not forgotten about tags)

Let's go after our # 21 spot again.
We will need to increase from here though.

Managed to get some work done until my main rig lost internet. Spent an hour at it the other night and still unable to get back on.

Gonna give it another shot with the new driver. If I can actually fold AND play BF1 I will let it fold when I am not playing :)

Fingers crossed....

No bad units, but the new drivers don't perform like the 372 and 373 series. Down about 300-400k ppd. At least I can game too tho...

Team, I am in! For nVidia, using the 372.90 driver. The Radeon has some power issues and will downclock it to 1000 MHz from the stock 1100 but atm is not folding is just doing duty as display card. I can game fine and the 1060 is folding fine in the same time doing around 300k PPD while gpu usage is not jumping over 85%! Although where I am right now power usage is not an issue!
Judging by the number of WUs looks like DT is doing SMP folding with an army of CPUs!

Just curious : you are running fully updated windows ?
I had one rig running windows 7 that was 1 year outta date.NO drivers worked.
I updated the windows , that rig is now using 373's and doing 750 k ppd.

Well guys, the race seems to be winding down and folks are heading for the exit. I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks for tweaking the bear so to speak. These contests are good for FAH and DC in general. Hope to see you all again next year. :thumb:
