    Both. I got the new card in Monday, but cannot get that rig to fold again....yet. Tried different drivers, and different versions of FAH.

    Well good luck. I presume you've uninstalled/reinstalled FAH. Is it throwing off any error messages? I like being #1:first right now, but I could use some company. :hatsoff

    Have you gotten rid of Windows 10 yet, and gone with a Linux distro? ;)

    I can hardly talk, my GTX 1070 and GTX 970 are just sitting here, maybe it will be a winter project.

    Never could get a Linux Distro. to talk to my GPU's. Now, though with all I do that is still tied to Microsoft, will stay with Win 10 for now.
    Both machines are down now, and I think it has to do with the fall creators update. I noticed that is the time they went down.
    At this time I don't want to go back just for this. I tried that the other day and lost a bunch of personal files.
    Good thing for back ups! Funny thing is I didn't lose anything during the upgrade as some reported, I lost them when I tried to roll back. :D
    I remember going through this a couple of years ago also. :(

    Yeah, if nothing else this winter I plan on upgrading one of the machines again to i7 and more ram, I will also do a clean install of windows.

    I periodically have problems with windows updates deleting the file /windows/system32/OpenCL.dll and have to restore it from a copy I keep. Once copied back in, it works without a hitch.

    Well after a full diagnostic review of the folding sub systems I have ascertained the follow:

    Several plasma conduits where damaged. One of the main folding cores lost primary and secondary cooling, causing critical damage to many of the isolinear optical sub possessors. This complete folding core known as GTX 1070Ti had to be replaced.
    In and at the same time the main computer core responsible for the folding sub systems, took a scheduled software update. This new update did not take in to account how imperative it was, to keep the folding core operating. Software has been patched and the folding cores are being brought back on-line one by one. All damages have been repaired as of 15th of October, 2018.

    Welcome back to the Fold. ;)

    With the increased production, and I hope to have another machine back online this week, SatGuys should reclaim the #50 spot within the week. The #49 spot should be ours in about a month.

    Just picked up a Core-i7-7770 desktop with a GTX1030 card for less than $400. Should be good for near 100K ppd.
