Computer frozen while F@H

Postby Zenophobe » Wed Apr 14, 2010 11:57 pm

Current Setup:
Windows 7 Home 64bit
Intel X3350 CPU (Corsair H50 cooling and stock speeds)
3 EVGA 9800GTX+ running GPU client (stock cooling and speeds)
PC Power & Cooling 750 silencer
The temps on 2 of the cards will always run min 80's celcius and the 3rd in the 70's.
I got home today and tried to use my computer and everything was running but nothing was working. Frozen It had frozen after about 12 hours of folding according to the logs. There is no error's listed in the logs just the percentage that the WU were at? I know my PC is pulling approx 490-520 watts i know i should be good up to 600 watts as the power supply is rated at 80% efficiency.. What can i do to find the problems?

First, run the exact same setup again, and see what happens ...

If it fails again, you'll have to test all GPU alone, by running only one client at once ...

That is the same problem I've been seeing.

Vista Ultimate 64
3X XFX Superclocked GTX 260/216's
Also using an EVGA 780i SLI mobo

This could be an issue with the mobo. I only see this when all 3 GPU clients are running, and the SMP is also running. If I just run the GPU's, it hasn't locked up. It seems to be random.

I am not running the SMP client.. only the GPU. I am assuming this is a heat issue with my PC. I'll see if i get the same issue with 2 GPU's running.
