    Oh well I tried but won't be able to deliver these WUs. 14 minutes left.
    These are all sitting around the 97th percentile with around 237 hours elapsed.

    I will still let them finish.

    4 minutes to go. Hope the 2 remaining gpu units I had got delivered in time. They should have finished some 3 hours ago, but I'm not home to make sure boinc sent them.

    Our first race of the year and we're already in the top 10! WTG, TeAm! :cool:

    Technically, there are still some results that have to be verified. But we'd have to have done close to 50 bad WUs to lose our 10th place spot.

    Not too bad: only 3 WUs not validated. There is plenty of margin.

    Sorry for causing us to lose 54,446 points :(

    Is this an indicator that I have a hardware issue on my machine, or is it normal for some WU's returned to not be valid? The system I was running this on is not overclocked, neither video card I ran it on is overclocked, and I don't remember experiencing any system instability during that time period.

    No problem losing points. We have a solid 10th position. The last time we ran GFN in a race I was borking WUs right and left so I had to reduce the memory clock in my factory OC'd cards. In this last race the cards were all fine. :confused:

    I did have the latest nvidia drivers installed this time (310.90). I'm at a loss for an explanation.
