    If you're getting lots of EUEs then the chances are that one of more components in your PC is either overclocked too much or dying, so corrupting data.

    If your CPU(s) or GPU(s) are overclocked trying backing off a little on the overclock and try folding again.

    I would suspect that and thanks for thee quick response Lizard

    I think its the GPU ive been pushing it hard now backed it off now and see how that goes

    Was reading a thread on another folding forum and firmware also come into play too??

    What Firmware is everyone running at the moment??

    What CPU are you using? That reading of 333x9 could be a stock Q9650, or an overclocked Q6600.

    Ah, spot on. Are you folding with that as well, or just on the GPU? The extra heat in the case may cause issues, but the Q6600 is a nice Folding chip. Are you running any extra cooling on your 9600GT (aftermarket cooler, side-panel fans, etc)?

    there both Watercooled so that really shouldnt be an issue

    only have one smp client running locked to one core and the gpu client thats it

    How come you've got the SMP client locked to one core? Would a standard client not be more suited to that? Or better yet, locking the SMP to 3 cores and leaving one free for the GPU?

    Use the SMP client on the Q6600 with the tag -smp 3, and you'll use 3 cores instead of the one. Should mean you're going fast enough on those units to qualify for much more points (there are SMP bonuses for quick finishes). Leave the one core free for the GPU client, so you're not impacting it.

    i am using set affinity to monitor and control cores so shall i just lock the smp to core1,2,3 and leave the gpu at core 0??

    Sorry for all the bone Q's but been out a while and things have changed somewhat lol

    That'd do, yeah. Or should, anyway - I don't see why not. One of the more expert Folders will be along at some point to read this, I'm sure.

    Probably best to use all four cores for SMP but raise the priority of the GPU core by setting it to 'low' in the client configuration. This way the GPU PPD will not be affected.

    That's very odd. I'm starting to get the same message on my GPU. I reverted it to stock and it still fails. Any Ideas why it might be? Log file says that every time:

    That used to mean the ram was dying on my 8800GT's.

    Try a client reinstall & driver update then test the card through 200 runs of the crysis benchmark to see if it crashes.

    One of my new GTS 450s has been getting NANs. I've just turned it off for a few days, in case there were some rogue WUs being pushed out - I don't want the hassle of RMAing. Not overclocked, all case temperatures seem OK.
