Ya it's old but it's still relevant.;) You need the GPU3 6.41 Fermi client on the advanced page. and the drivers from your install CD. You're the guinea pig here as I haven't tried it yet, too hot for GPU folding. You could also try out the new v7 beta client if you wish, I don't like it because I can't track my points with HFM, but it's a no brainer installation.

That's a really nice card man, I've been thinking of a 560 Ti myself. They run much cooler than the 4xx series like I got. Let us know your PPD please, it'd be nice to know. :notworthy

not sure about heating, how hot do the 4xx cards get, so far at load ( WOW:cata, or Crysis 2 both on high and playing a movie on the TV) it runs around 64C. and 36C idle.

Cool on the 2500 posts! ^*^ You definitely need core_15 for it to work on your card but I'm not sure why you're blowing up. I've got a virgin W7 install on my 2600K ATM so I'll try the 6.41 and see what happens. Delete the clients and folders and then reinstall the 6.41 if you don't want to wait for me. I'm pretty tired so an answer may be only tomorrow.

It's working for me, do you have a passkey? Only other thing I can suggest is getting the newest nVidia drivers.

Re: Welcome back to the fold c0ldfyr3

Postby c0ldfyr3 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:11 am

installed latest drivers which at the time of install were 275.33.. they didn't work, reinstalled just to make sure still no go. now i am going to try the 275.50 Beta drivers post on hardwarecanucks were somone was having the same problem.
we'll see...


EDIT: Its not a good idea to use the 275.50 beta drivers for gaming, the games glitch a lot and become unresponsive after about 30 minutes. in WoW: cata. its unresposive from the start. they are beta so i'll just have to wait for offiucial release.
