Like I said, I fixed the problem by rebooting the machine. And I use EVGA Precision to overclock my cards and monitor their temperatures and frequencies.

Go figure,

The three gpu's that have the -advmethods removed are getting almost all :angry2:548's while the other four that still have the -advmethods flag are getting 353 and 1888 point WU's.

If you don't like the new WU's maybe try putting the flag back on, Good Luck...

I don't mind the :censored: 548's , they would'nt be issueing them if they were not worth further investigation.

They are definitely hot loads tho.

I manually set my fans . With any other WU's all gpu's are below 65c. (65% fan ).

The :censored: 548's drove my 285 to 79c.......the 260 is up 8 degrees , my 8800 is up 11c.......

79 c , while hot , is no problem really , to my knowledge all 200 series chips are rated 105c .

----

I've bumped the 285 to 86% fan.......running at 71c.....

Woot! These were the first WU's to break the 90degree mark on my GX2 hehehehe. Ah well that card doesn't mind the heat at all really. Its been rock stable for WU's since I got it, minus when the servers jam up and slow it down.

I've got damn good airflow in that computer too.

The real beef I have with these units is that I had to drop the shaders on my 9600GSO by over 300MHz just to run the damn things.

Try deleting the core and download a new one. Just saw this post from Pande's blog:
GPU2 core auto-upgrade planned for Monday Jan 4, 2010

Happy New Year! We're starting out the new year with a planned auto-core upgrade for GPU core 11. This is planned to happen Monday morning Stanford time. This will bring the GPU core to version 1.31, which has many improvements. In particular, this core is very helpful with the new P10101 WUs. If you'd like to upgrade sooner, you can always do a manual core upgrade at any time by deleting your GPU core (or perhaps safer -- renaming the file so you can revert back if you want).
However, such manual core upgrades are just for FAH experts. The FAH client software will do all of this for you if you like, by the auto-upgrade mechanism built-in on Monday.
It's also worth mentioning that we have made good progress with the GPU3 core and that should be rolling out of beta to production early in 2010.
They rolled out this new core early it seem to deal with issues people have been reporting here:

That would be nice, except for the fact that I've been running the 1.31 core for over a month (it's required in order to fold on G92 and GT200 GPUs in the same system). It's also been the core that gets downloaded with each new client installation for a while now.
