Same issue. I am running the latest drivers. I will try and older version later.

Windows updates periodically (no make that regularly) disturb the drivers. Downloads the Nvidia drivers from Nvidia directly, install and try again.

Thanks for the replies guys! I only download my updates from Nvidia directly AND I don't run windows updates.

BUT! I will remove and reinstall the drivers. Can't hurt.

Hey guys! First post here, but I have done some PG work in the past. Recently I got a 1080gtx and I have been wondering what I should run it on! Well, I decided on the extreme, just to see.

But I noticed the first two tasks failed in a few seconds. The ended with..

Stderr output
The storage control blocks were destroyed.

I see the error SEEMS like an OpenCL error, but I have run this card on other opencl projects without issue and gpuz says I have opencl. Thoughts?

Thanks guys! These cards are running around 60C on PG. I would rule out the power supply issue as the culprit simply because it runs milkyway tasks with no change. It might have just been a one off task, so I aborted it.

Hey guys, I have been running GFN21 tasks during the recent challenge and was just getting ready to finish up my tasks and noticed something. One of my tasks has been running fr 7 days, it at about 44% and has 9 days left (estimated).

All other cards on the system are identical (7950's) and take about 22 hours. I rarely check these systems, just set it and forget it, so I was surprised. Its not an Extreme task, just a standard task.

Anyone seen this before?
