Recently I was given a link to a site that explains how to hack the less expensive nVidia models to get fast DP from them, as fast as the expensive models.

Please share the site URL :)

I definitely prefer the shorter due dates AND the smaller cache size ... 10/core. I was running another project that just ran out of work that has 3 week due dates. I have 60k pending because some knuckleheads didn't have the courtesy to abort tons of WU and just let them time out. Now I have to wait up to 3 additional weeks for them to validate ... frustrating.

Under your BOINC NETWORK preferences check the MINIMUM WORK BUFFER DAYS. If it is set to something like 1 (or more) then it can cause everything to run in high priority mode. Drop that down to something like .2 days and it may solve the problem of everything running HP. This may not be your problem but it definitely can cause exactly what you describe. That field is similar to the old connect to the internet every X days.

I also would like to see the stats exported much more frequently!
