I think I should post here and mention something to everyone:

 

If you have a Maxwell card, open up F@H & GPU-Z and see if your VRAM is boosting all the way whilst folding.   If it isn't boosting to 1752.8 MHz in GPU-Z, it's not fully boosting because your card is in P2 Power-state.

If it's not fully boosting, go and get "nvidia inspector" http://www.guru3d.co...r-download.html

 

Once you have it open, click on "overclocking mode" and click the dropdown menu that says "Performance Level 3"   click on "Performance Level 2" and slowly turn up the memory clock offset until you get to +3505 mhz, it will fix your VRAM boosting issue.  (It will read 1752.8 in GPU-Z afterwards)

 

This should give you more PPD afterwards, seeing as you went from 6004 to 7010 MHz on the VRAM.

 

Afterburner will not work, as it only changes P3 state, not P2.

 

 

@Whaler_99 I'm unsure if you want to mention this in a topic somewhere, it seems to be a known issue with F@H & BOINC with 970/980 cards.   (Or if this is good enough here)

 

Added to the FAQ - thanks!

well yeah, that error seems to usually be cpu related... i would

do some proper cpu stability testing to see if you got a faulty 

system or not, it might affect more than folding. And check

your temps.

 

I would throw together a thread in the troubleshooting section

if i were you, it's good that it's kinda working temporarily though :P


my 4p machine for those who are interested.

If we keep it up we should pass Anandtech by the end of this weekend, and Tom's Hardware by the end of next weekend.

 

Not an overly competitive person myself, but this is applause worthy.

I like them 18 units, running 347.25 drivers at the moment. Are any older drivers doing better with the 18's ? Keeping over 200k ppd

Hey everyone! I just started folding about a week ago and everything was working fine but now for some reason when I open up advanced control its stuck on trying to connect and wont give me options about folding. The web controls work fine tho, I just prefer using advanced control. Anyone know how I can fix it? I`ve already tried re-installing.

Did you choose to remove  the data when you uninstalled it?
