Project: 7621 (Run 372, Clone 0, Gen 3) NANs detected on GPU

Postby GreyWhiskers » Mon Aug 22, 2011 5:53 am

I was reissued the same WU right after this Unstable Machine w/NANs on one of the new 7621 WUs. The second time around, it successfully completed, and one more successfully completed, and am at 95% on the next. It should be more stable at this backoff.....

I have had the GTX 560Ti overclocked to a core clock of 953 MHz for months - after the NAN, I backed it off to 930 MHz. BTW, GPU temps have remained good - less than 70 deg C.

The new WU are a lot more stressful than the old GPU WUs. Therefore getting crashes are not uncommon. My GTX 460 used to fold fine at 62C with 860 core. Now I have to back it down to 840 core and the temps are at 70C. Fan speed is auto.

The higher the number on your card, the less likely you will be to see a temperature rise. However, all cards seem to be equally open to the OC NAN. I have less capable cards, but but they fold these fine at lower clocks.

GTX460- dropped from 850 to 825 (72C, max fan)
GTS450- dropped form 950 to 875 (75C, max fan)

Thanks for your input here everyone, it seems that turning down the clock rate may be necessary to finish these WUs.

BTW, another quick stat on folding the 7620/7621s. I'm seeing through the stats in both MSI Afterburner and GPU-Z that the memory usage is 513 MB (out of the 1024 MB). This is signifigantly higher than I remember getting on the p680x WUs. I don't have the exact mem usage numbers for the p680x, but I do remember noting that it seemed very low the last time I looked.

One other observation, similar to others. The system seems pretty sluggish with the SMP and GPU together compared with before. It may be the video, it may be the CPU, it may be the wireless keyboard and mouse - but with SMP 8 and the 7620/7621s, the system is getting a real workout.

With a 460 Hawk at 68xx projects my card was overclocked to 925 and the max temp was 77. Now I have a 7621 project and at 912mhz my temps are around 88C. I am disappointed about the ppd, because is about the same with 68xx projects. Considering the size of the project and the heat that is produced I think that the points are not high enough. So I will not fold this projects anymore until the points system will be reconsidered. Anyone else has the same opinion about the points for this projects?

The points are determined by the official benchmarking policy, which has not changed (and probably won't). The fact that FAH is now able to make more effective use of the GPU resources is considered a good thing, but it's unrelated to the benchmarking process. Others have discovered that although they have been able to overclocking their GPU when it's running only inefficient projects, they now know why the manufacturer established the standard clock rate.

If you choose to stop folding, that's your own personal decision, but please don't attempt to recruit others to do the same.

Everybody has a choice,and I don't want anybody to follow my opinion,just wanted to know if I am the only one who thinks that a much bigger project deserve more points. I don't want to quit folding, and I fold for 2 years(almost 4 million points). Since yesterday I have a better airflow in my case and my temps on gpu on 7621 project dropped almost 10C.Maybe I will reconsider folding 762X projects again :) the more so as is so important for researchers in this period of time . Thank you Bruce for your answer!
