@porporme,
you will have better luck if you start your own thread... It is tough to track a semi related question in a long thread like this... Maybe too many different thoughts and directions. My short (uninformed) answer, the 9800GT does better than 9600 GT/GSO. In the folding forum, they have some user data on stock cards. I would imagine that it might do 10-30% better than the 9600GT. Depends on the WU being pumped out.

@dabaerman,
THanks, I may try installing it. I just started using rivatuner myelf, so I am just getting the hang of it.

@gedon,
If I wasn't obvious, I was just joking. We do what we can, when we can. I would never seriously criticize anyone for not folding. It is a personal choice. Do you have a sense of how much it was costing you in electricity?

The EVGA Tools utility is a very simple utility that, although it is probably adequate for basic overclocking, is vastly overshadowed by its big brother Rivatuner (the developer of Riva is also the designer of EVGA Tools).

The Rivatuner utlilty is so complex and detailed that it would take a bona fide expert to explain all of its features. Some of them I have learned to appreciate, and others I choose not to use.

At the end of the day it's a question of what you want from your GPU tuning software...ease and simplicity, or complete control over each and every tweak setting. Personally, I've gotten comfortable with Riva over the few years I have used it, but you may not. Try it and see.

I can give you an Idea on this one. Before the 9600GT I had 3 rigs folding 24/7.
1. Biostar GF7050V-M7, E4300
2.Athlon 750
3. Intel 700

The monitors on the 2 & 3 were off most of the time and #1 I'd shut off at night. Cost about $15 a month.
I got the 9600GT and changed from a CPU client to the GPU client on both cores, my bill doubled. I pulled 2 & 3 off line.
Bottom line is my 9600GT folding 24/7 costs me about $15 a month-if I manage my monitor.

@StevI
I know you was joking

@porporme
the 9800gt is a rebranded 8800gt

Edit: just the one rig approx 230€ a year

Thanks. I've since found that out.

Incidentally, the Big Bang drivers have NO DRIVER-LEVEL FAN SUPPORT in either EVGA Tools or Rivatuner. Put simply, that means you can't control the fan speed curve with drivers 180.xx in eihter of those programs until the developer releases the next version.

It should be soon-it's in beta testing for about a week now. It is a major revision, as well. This version [of Rivatuner] will also support, for the first time, dual GPUs with or without SLI. That is great news for the folding community, because we will be able to rewrite the driver-controlled fan speed v. temp curve as we want to ON BOTH CARDS. Currently I do this by modding the GPU BIOS, but it's easier with a software mod. I'm also not sure how many of you want to go that route and void your warranty in the process.

I follow the official Rivatuner forum regularly out of necessity. It seems that it may become more and more important to many of us, so I'll continue to let you know anything I find out.

a man dedicated to Folding and the tools to make things work.

many, many thanks for the effort you make and share so I can benefit (read: that ALL can benefit).

1890 mhz.... shows 5184 PPD.

I am more than a little surprised it is still holding together. I think I am going to quietly walk away and let it fold overnight.

This $65 card (after rebate) is now officially outfolding the rest of my computers in my house combined, 4 (budget) SMP & one ATI 3870.
EVGA 9600GSO, I had to buy it, $56.99 + shipping, $8.25. got it in and folding. will take the shaders to 1800 and see what happens.

Based on comments from the other thread, I was going to recommend you look at the GSO's... Good luck with it. My new cards are EVGA... they seem to be making a push into the market. Both my cards (GT & GSO) match shader clocks at 1836. It may be a good starting guess for OC for you. 5K should be a slam dunk.

I am finding that different chipsets have different affects on the same card. I have an AMD 770, AMD 690G, SiS and an nForce 570. I have had the same 9800GT in each with different time on the same GPU core, 5506. the slowest to the fastest; nF 570(4600), AMD 690G(5000), SiS[skt939](5200), AMD 770(5900). it has been a long weekend spent playing the change game. now all four boxen are left to fold what they can.

obtw, the 9600GSO is making 3900ppd on the nForce board! actually 500ppd less than on the SiS board. the 9800GT is 600ppd faster on the nF570. almost a wash.
