This client seems to work great for the GPUs producing about 18,000 PPD, but the SMP PPD is only 24,000-8,000 depending on the settings. I think the 990x @ 4.2GHz should produce ~50,000 PPD?
Let me know if you have any suggestions for my setup (client and/or settings). I would prefer to run the CPU most of the time and the GPUs less due to heat production/power usage.
The 990x by itself should get you around 50,000 - 60,000 ppd if it folds 24/7 on -bigadv wu's (be sure to check this option in the tracker). A little less if you use it everyday. The -bigadv units are about 30MB downloads and once they are finished turn into 100MB uploads back to Stanford. They are all about the bonus. The base points are 8955 and then the bonus is calculated based on how quickly it is returned.
You could probably run the GTX 580's on GPU3 and the 990X on -bigadv and get close to 90k to 100k ppd total from that rig.
If you have any questions just let me know.
I like the Tracker application and am using it on both of my rigs.
