I tried to run 2 these tasks on my GTX 470s and both failed.

Hard to say, exactly, other than that some external event was causing errors with the cuda system. Genefer can recover from some of those, but it can't recover from every situation. In the end, the GPU as unavailable, and after an hour of trying to reconnect, the program gave up.

The underlying cause can be almost anything, from program bugs to unreliable drivers to interference from other programs (games, web browsers, etc.), to Windows itself.

I've heard various things about some versions of the video driver being more reliable than others. I have heard of people having trouble with 320. You seem to have 314, and perhaps that's less reliable than 311. Maybe someone has more comprehensive information about the different drivers; I haven't updated mine in a while.
