And here's a Wired article on the same subject.

...

However, heat is often a significant factor in this error, and people have found that lowering the memory clock sometimes helps. You might want to try that, as well as opening up the GPUs and cleaning out the heatsinks with some compressed air.


It's a brand new system, less than a week out of the box. Doubtful it has enough dust to fill a mouse-finger-sized thimble yet.

I set my screen to never power off, and am still getting errors. I have a dual-SLI setup of GTX-570's w/2.5gb and the 296.10 driver.

I just reread the GPUgrid link and noticed that you must not have a screen-saver active, either, as that too will cause problems. I checked and ... yup, my screensaver was set to kick in after about an hour. I flipped it off and will wait to see if the remaining WU's in my queue will generate errors.

Since my two machines are almost always running SGS, I usually don't notice (or care) that things are running differently. But in a challenge, everything is always a bit off.

What irks me is the number of people who don't know there is a challenge, get a pile of WU's, and then their machines switch to some other project, leaving me with tons of double- and triple-checks to carry out. I prefer virgin numbers.

My quad-core gaming rig is now crunching this.

Guess I'll have to read a book this weekend ...

The number is not shown until afterward to keep people from trying to cheat.


Ummm... how do people cheat at prime number calculation?
