3 cores running
9800gx2 on the single slot board (thanks SKYMTL !)
8800gts on the other one
and LOTS of cooling !!
That's a Farm. Well done.

I still have my GTX 280 for sale, and am folding on the second. I must say it's very tempting to remove both 4870s and add that lonely GTX280 to the Fold...:ph34r:

Sell the 4870s and go for the GTX280? But I'm waiting for full coverage blocks coming very shortly for those 2 cards, the rad and pump are ready... :doh:

Are those points from your 9800gtx ?
Thats pretty damn good for a single core card... :shok:
I get ~5800 to 6040 ppd from the 9800gtx, depending on the WU, the rest is from the quad. I would get more from the quad but I switch it over to Boinc once or twice a week to help out there and make sure I make the deadlines...

One rig can only do so much, that's why I want another one...:biggrin:

You could always upgrade the MB and PSU and have both GTX280's on your second rig, I don't think you need an SLI board to run the multi GPU client, but have not had the time to research it yet...

One 280GTX is alot of Folding power, Two would be Incredible...

Im working on another rig as well, got some spare parts like a 3870,Raptor 74,watercooling, 2x1gb Mushkin XP2 8500. I plan to buy a cheap processor and mobo to get that 3870 to work folding 24/7/365.

I of course will need some help. I promised to fold for NCIX for a while, but i plan to get a second 3870, can i use 1 for NCIX and 1 for HWC? is that possible?

How much PPD does a 3870 output btw?
Also, can you fold with your cpu and gpu at the same time in the same rig?

Ewwww, nvidia chipset....no way LoL

just wondering if im doing this right, i've got the latest nvidia drivers, and 2 9800gx2s, my cpu has 1 core at 100%, and the gpu though i dont know how to tell if any of the cores are flat out, riva tuner shows that none of them are hot at all, all 4 cores are at 62 degrees, which is idle temps and my ppu is only 4700. Am i incorrect in assuming that dual 9800gx2s should be getting more?

GX2s should output close to ~10000ppd. 2 of them? Do the math.

Folding Forum • View forum - NVIDIA specific issues: somewhere is there is a thread about dual GX2s configuration. Also this could be useful: GPU2 configuration guide - [H]ard|Forum.

Dual GX2s will be a very powerful Folding Farm. Hopefully it will be for 54196!

And use the lates CUDA 177.84 drivers here: Folding Forum • View topic - Official CUDA 177.84 for XP and Vista available..

I would not recommend an ATI card for the time being; the output of a 3870 is ~1000ppd, while the 4870 outputs ~2500ppd. Nowhere near the ~8000ppd of the GTX280 and ~10000ppd of the GX2...

You can have both the CPU and GPU clients on the same rig, no problem. You can fold for multiple Teams too.
