I began to crunch ~9 months ago. It was in Folding. I mainly crunch with GPUs and two GTX280 have already died (they have been crunching ~4 months each one before they died)

Did you overclock any of those 2 graphic cards?


Yes, 16% in clock and shaders (memory at stock rate). Now I don't do any OC in my GPUs.

The WU processed with CUDA appear to be over claiming. You are receiving the credit claimed by your wingman with a CPU processed WU.


So if my wingman has processed his WU with cuda too, then we will receive both higher credit that if my wingman is a CPU-cruncher?

In other words. The credit I get for a WU can vary according to the wingman I have?

I'm crunching in a PC with a GTX295 and a 8800GT three SETI-cuda WUs at a time with the Raistmer's opt. packagge v7 that uses the MB_6.08_mod_VLAR_kill_CUDA.exe and it works fine. I wonder if I would get a better crunching rate with this new ones (v10 and so).

I only wanto to run SETI with GPU. I will do what I'm doing since the first time I used GPU on SETI, try it once a week o less (aprox.). If it crashes, I'll stop and try a week later and so. This has been my second trial (I have already left aside seti.cuda because it crashed my PCs)... I think that they have to do tests at Seti.beta, not this project.

I have just tried V6 (I have had to register at "Opt. Seti...") on both PCs. They now DON'T reset BUT:

The first one only get "Calc. Error" in each unit it tries to crunch.

The second one is crunching a unit, but this unit will take HOURS to be finished. Units similar to this one were taking about 10 minutes to be crunched with the original SETI program.

I have decided to abandone SETI until they get rid of this error.

Both PC's have a gtx280 running under Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bits.

Installed V5 opt. One of my PCs has just done a reset. It seems that it doesn't work for me.

I have been trying seti@home cuda units in two PCs (each one with a gtx280 without OC) and almost every day I have a reset or video driver failure with some unit. The temperatures are relatively low (if compared with the temps. I get crunching in folding and Gpugrid which are higher and without problems). I think I'll wait until the units delivered be safer for crunching.
