Can someone help me set up folding on my SLI?

I think I'm probably just too tired to figure it out but does someone have a "For Dummies" sort of guide for getting folding on two GPUs?

I thought I'd done it right but apparently I failed. :doh:

Thanks for any help

Cheer! :thumb:

(I do know that you need SLI disabled and you need to have two separate folders for the client)

I didn't think folding in SLI worked. I thought you had to turn it off then add a -gpu 0 and -gpu 1 to the command line of 2 clients.

Hence why I said in my post that I know you need to disable SLI to fold :thumb:

I'll check that guide out this evening with a more clear head. Thanks guys.

Good stuff !! glad you got it sorted out, what was the problem, one of the shortcuts ?.
I would be interested in what sort of PPD you get on the different WU's with those beasts , especially the :censored: 511's...

Is that a 511 point WU? Looks pretty good to me. Have you tried OCing the shaders yet?

5755 is a 511pt WU, rare bad luck to get the same project on both cards, normally they are different. Have you had a chance to crank the shaders yet and see what they'll do ??...:thumb:

Could it be because I copied the directories?

I can't crank the clocks very high on these cards yet. I'm still waiting on waterblocks.
