Thanks for those numbers! :) I did try to probe the project directly for some reliability information sometime back, but it resulted in silence (they are busy of course).

There are some simple, very low computational cost, approaches I'm looking at designing into x42 Cuda series, that might even aid in the '560ti' situation (as the host indicated by Dave in the post before mine).

Frankly, for a long time, I was baffled by the apparent difficulty running these. Whether there were some weird unknown application bugs etc specific to the GPU. The apparent near flawless performance of my own 560ti here made things even more interesting.

In short, there are ways that can be used application side to detect the majority & take appropriate measures (whatever they be). Over time it's become clear that the 'performance-on-a-budget' market, in particular, is the most sensitive to basic system build issues... something like street hot-dog vendors selling F15 Eagle fighter aircraft.

I did this list 2wks ago of rigs that annoyed me that week if that helps Jason.
Some here have already seen the monthly lists that I put out for bad rigs under SETI V6, now here's a new list which is just as long as before but in this case it's just a week's worth. :-o

Thanks! it will indeed. A quick survey of those with beer might be justified shortly, with some guesses at categorising the nature of the issues. bookmarking that info

Cheers,

Enjoy that beer buddy as it'll sadly be another 3hrs before I can enjoy a few.
