Hey guys. First time posting here, I'm quite new to SETI@home! I have a question for the GTX 670/680 owners here.

Has SETI@home ever caused your 670/680 cards to exhibit a Red Screen of Death (RSOD) or ANY other odd behavior? I ask because the 670/680s are known for being a tad fussy. I've read my fair share of forum posts on other sites of people getting RSODS and outright failures for god knows what reason. I just want to see what everyone else's experience is like in terms of the reliability of the 670/680s running SETI@home.

Any answers would be much appreciated!

PS. I apologize in advance if this topic has been gone over before!

I first time heard those of kind of problems you say. You can look at my computers they all use exclusively gtx 680. Not a single problem so far. I don't think you gonna have any problem. Only the PSU to support them and the server to support you with results. If you want to ask me anything more specific go ahead!

I found this on the "videocardz" forums:

nVidia GeForce GTX 680 RSOD

It sounds like you need to update your monitoring or diagnostic program.

I uninstalled my Precision X software a few days ago after I got an RSOD while Precision X was running. I haven't gotten an RSOD since but I know of other people having this terrible issue and I wanted to see if SETI@home would possibly trigger it as well. I don't want to leave my system crunching while I'm at school and come back to an RSOD, y'know? I've been letting SETI run in small under-one-hour sessions since I got my card last Thursday just to see how it behaves. I think I'll man up and try for longer today haha.

Thanks for the responses guys! :D

Are you keeping your GPU fans cranked up a bit? I tend to leave mine maxed in an over abundance of caution. Temp issues will absolutely cause crashes and comp errors.
