Why is my GPU folding slot failing?

Fri Dec 05, 2014 9:35 am

I'm back folding for TR after getting a GTX 970, but my GPU slot keeps failing. It's an EVGA ACX 1 version, factory overclocked to boost to 1366 MHz. I have a stable gaming overclock of 1451 MHz boost on the GPU, and 1976 MHz on the memory, and this was the case the first time the slot failed. I have tried removing and re-adding the GPU slot. I have tried disabling the overclock entirely. I have tried underclocking the GPU 100 MHz, leaving the memory stock. I have uninstalled F@H (v7.4.4 since before the GPU upgrade) including deleting the data, and reinstalling. I have even completely uninstalled GeForce Experience, the driver, and all other nvidia software such as PhysX before reinstalling everything and trying again.

It seems that unless I wait a day or so to start folding on the GPU again, it will fail before making any progress in the work unit. Otherwise it may make it all the way through one work unit before failing.

The card itself seems fine... It never gets above 72 C and I never have a problem gaming unless I exceed 1451 MHz. My 750 Ti in my other system folds flawlessly. What gives?

Could you share your folding log with us from a point-in-time when this is occurring? (Best when log verbosity is set to "5")

Additionally, what driver version is being used?

The driver is the latest, 344.75 I believe. Set to update to beta drivers but I think the current one is WHQL. I'll look into setting log verbosity and capturing the event when I get home from work.

Are you using any F@H flags or no?

Put the card clocks back to defaults, then drop them by 200Mhz and see if that makes the crashing go away. If it does then safe bet the card wasn't fully stable out of the box. If it continues to drop WU's then it's something else.

I don't know what the deal is, but since I got home from work it hasn't failed. It was folding on idle with the full overclock... set to Full now. I will look up what the stock clocks are supposed to be and underclock to that if/when it fails again and if it continues to fail I will post the logs.

I don't use any flags.

Weird.

Okay, it failed at 1451 MHz again (saw that comin', right?) so I underclocked it 200 MHz (1166 MHz boost, I believe this is even lower than stock 970) and it has failed again. I had previously set the log verbosity to 5 so I set the view specific to the GPU slot, went back to a point where it was successfully completing a work unit, and copied it from there.

...Fermi? I guess it is an evolution of that architecture.

I guess this is the most relevant part:

It tries 0x17 and 0x18 work units, to no avail.

Looks like a 0x17 unit did complete previously... So, what determines the PID?

Re: Why is my GPU folding slot failing?

Wed Dec 10, 2014 7:50 am

This seems to be the error: Bad platformId size

Two questions:
1. What is your OS?
2. Is the GTX 970 listed in the GPU.txt?

1. Windows 8.1 Pro, 64-bit.
2. I just searched and found a GPUs.txt in [...]\AppData\Roaming\FAHClient with this snippet:

Hmmmm..that should be the right place and the 970 shows up. Next step I would try the beta driver and see if that makes a difference.

There doesn't seem to be a beta available... looks like what I'm running (344.75) is the latest. Confirmed, searching on Nvidia's site. I am set to check for beta drivers in GeForce Experience.

Well... crap.

I would try completely uninstalling FAH, then uninstall the video driver, reinstall the video driver, then FAH....

Thing is, he's done what you both (above) have mentioned already. (Though, I not saying that it might not just happen to work for him this time, if he goes about it once again. Who knows.)

Not that this helps any, but I recently had a very similar issue with one of my old 680's.

Folding with 1x 680 in a P45/Intel E8400/750w PSU machine, I would have similar issues. One, maybe two WU would complete, and then return BAD_WORK_UNITS permanently. Reverted to no OCs on all components. Same result.

However, if I took the 680 out of that machine, and folded with it in my main machine (X79/Intel 3930k/2x 970s/1x 680/910w PSU), it would consistently return completed WUs without fail.

I'm not sure why this occurred at all, but maybe this piece of information may lead someone else to your solution.

In the meantime, do you have a second machine to test the card in, under F@H?

And just to double-check, you have also tried underclocking the RAM as well?

Otherwise I'm out of ideas, sorry. You should post at the F@H forums for assistance as they can tell you what the logs mean: https://foldingforum.org/index.php

I do have another machine I could try it in, but honestly I'd be more inclined to reformat. I'll try underclocking the RAM, and seeing if I can update my motherboard drivers. And I'll try the forum Kougar suggested as well. I appreciate your efforts guys, thank you.

I strongly would suggest posting in their forum before you wipe and reinstall. I've been folding on GPUs since they started doing it and it's had a plethora of early teething problems back in the day... if you can rule out drivers and leftover files that are left behind after an uninstall, then I highly doubt an OS wipe/reinstall would do anything to help. Just my two cents though!

Looks like you were right on that point Kougar. Luckily my laziness prevented any unnecessary expenditure of effort. And though my saying so may cause another failure, everything seems to have been fine since the 347.09 driver release. Mostly 0x15 and one 0x18 work unit so far.

You aren't alone.

I'm having issues where the folding slot fails on my GTX 970 as well. I've also read about it on other forums, including Stanford's folding forum. It seems some work units just don't go well. Reinstalling the FaH client won't help. I actually thought I was having slightly better results with earlier drivers before going to 344.75, but after downgrading, I had other issues so I went back up to the latest.

When the card actually does do any work units, it seems to perform reasonably --there's just no guarantee that it will keep going and not stall, or outright fail. My previous setup with two Radeon R9 280X cards folded flawlessly. I did a complete removal of all GPU folding slots prior to the GTX 970 and created a new one after its install. I've had no other issues with games or Windows applications.

Re: Why is my GPU folding slot failing?

Well I've at least learned a few things by now. Updating graphics drivers seemed to allow a good 12 to 24 hours of continuous GPU folding, but now with 347.52 the 970 has been folding just fine for almost two weeks -- with one caveat. I used to use Remote Desktop to keep an eye on it but I eventually learned this causes a GPU_MEMTEST_ERROR. Even connecting then disconnecting hours before a work unit finishes can cause this. Connecting with TeamViewer is a workaround.

A few things have changed, incidentally. My OS suddenly went corrupt on my SSD at the end of December and I went back to Windows 7. I also stopped overclocking the GPU for now.

For BAD_WORK_UNIT and Bad_platformId you can pause all folding, go into the AppData\Roaming\FAHClient folder and delete GPUs.txt, open the work folder and delete the folder there associated with the GPU ("01" for me), then back up a level and go into the cores\web.stanford.edu\~pande\Win32\AMD64 folder and delete the NVIDIA folder. Upon resuming it'll recreate all of those and attempt to re-download a new work unit and start again. On the left side of the Advanced Control window, when a new work unit starts downloading, the Folding Slots GPU and Work Queue listing both show "Download". If one of them changes to "Running" while the other still says "Download", it's going to fail in a few minutes.

If nothing else works, the only other thing that works for me is removing the GPU slot, waiting at least 4 to 6 hours, and adding it back in again. Hope this helps somebody.

I found the same thing regarding Remote Desktop. VNC is the only reliable method for remoting into a system for Folding. I didn't know this because when I had two Radeon R9 280X cards, I could RDP in all day long without my slots failing. It took me some time to find the issue.

Ever since I took care of that, my 970 (and now my 980) is folding fine. I'm still annoyed by nVidia's lack of attention to fixing the bugs in their drivers that prevent working with Core18, but clearly, it's not a priority for them as the issue has been known for many months.

Yes, and at this point, it isn't documented to fix the OpenCL/OpenMM issues with Folding@Home. I've checked the release notes on the past several drivers.

The issue has been reported in the Geforce forums, but nVidia people generally don't comment there, meaning in many cases no-one actually knows whether reporting problems does any good. The most anyone has heard is that "they are aware of the problem". No timeline or ETA on a fix, and no real statement.

https://forums.geforce.com/default/topi ... ver-bug/1/

Folding@Home has restricted Core18 folding projects so that Maxwell cards do not get them for this reason. Note that non-Maxwell Geforce cards and AMD cards can do Core18 projects just fine.
