That sucks man... I've lost hardware to folding in the past. A power supply and a CPU (but the CPU was my fault for trying to increase PPD
). Many say that folding just exposes existing issues, but I don't necessarily agree.
It's pure bliss being able to fold and not worry about crashes. I genuinely thought the occasional crash was just the nature of [email protected]
, and that everybody encountered them. Mine just were more frequent.
No - FlyorDie pegged it.

Anyway, if you have the case space for it, the Nitro+ is the quietest card I've had for as long as I can remember. It pulls about 180W (GPU) and gets 1.5M PPD with non 13421 WUs (gets about 600k PPD with the 13421's, @ 70W). Temp stays at 75C and fan RPM never breaks 3 digits. When it's idling, the fans don't even spin.
I think getting bigger than reference, specialized cooled GPUs is going to be my MO from here on out.
