vasileioszografos has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
From a piece of crap to a....slightly less piece of crap

So, I have a GeForce 9600 GS card in my build (as well as 2 GTX560Tis) running PhysX only.

And since there are virtually no PhysX supporting games plus the fact that I dont use my CPU and main GPUs for folding I decided to use the 9600 GS for 24/7 folding.

I inherited that card from someone and it is okayish for folding. Will clock something near 1900 PPD with default settings.

So I decided to slightly overclock it. Cranked up the GPU clock to 750 and the memory clock to 529 which gave a shader of 1900 (the 560ti has a shader of 1645 btw. ok different number of shaders but just as a reference).

So now it clocks upwards of 2600 PPD (on the same project).
Not too bad for a piece of **** I wont care twice if it melts.
It keeps a reasonable 62C and the fan is quite silent.

Nice one




By the way. If you havent seen or havent heard of a 9600 GS before I dont blame you.
It is some OEM card that used to come in various vendor builds etc.
Looks like that

1400? Do you mean 14,000? What Xeon are you talking about here, I was looking at getting a Xeon 5450 folding for extra points...

And here is a tip.
If you are going to overclock a piece of hardware, especially if it is old, replace the thermal paste.

The temps of the 9600GS at full blast --->65-69 degrees
After replacing the thermal paste ---> 54 degrees

The old one had almost solidified

Good idea.
It is a small thing, but people (including myself) always forget. And it can make such a big difference.

Which is probably the same as saying, if you keep your hardware for a few years, replace the thermal paste once in a while.
