    All is going OK here, I completed my first ever -bigadv successfully and all WUs successfully completed for my GTX 470 @ 700 MHz core also at a stable 14K PPD. For some reason credit for my first -bigadv (project 2684) jumped up in the middle of folding it and that brought my 2600K @ 4.2 GHz SMP PPD to about 35K where I'm with next WU also.

    I don't have my old system folding yet, but I'm using it to beta test and fix IL-2 Ultr@Pack3 so that my main rig can fold alone.

    Some juicy stuff going on right now in the smack talk box. Not sure if it's true but somebody hinted that half of evga jumped ship and are now folding for OCN or HWC. We will see what comes out of this.

    Just got my PS3 back online folding away. If anyones interested, its possible to install the folding client on PS3 while the Playstation Network is down. I went thru the "Life With Playstation" installer in the network XMB and folding client is part of that package (albeit a little hidden, but its there nonetheless). Good night everyone and keep up the good work

    So is it worth it to bump my oc on my main rig (i7 970) to 4.2 or 4.3 from 4.0GHz? I think I should be able to fold at 4.4GHz and keep below 60c...
    But is the difference in PPD that much different?

    its a 10% OC, so it'd be a 10% (or less) upgrade.

    I got some old figures for my first hex:

    3.75 GHz 54.500 PPD
    4.00 GHz 59.500 PPD
    4.10 GHz 62.200 PPD

    All on 2686.

    The points system is not linear so a 30 second decrease from 22:00 and 21:00 TPF is worth 2094 respectively 2355 PPD. But lose one due to a bad OC and you lost two weeks gain. I run mine at 4.1 GHz which is a OK balance for my systems (heat, W, PPD and stability).

    In our case, which everybody uses the same username... if one guy loses a WU, all the team will lose the bonus ?

    I believe the rule is you have to fail/lose 20% of the total amount of work units issued, so we should be safe. I have not seen an established user lose the bonus yet.

    Is a T9600 (2.8Ghz, 6MB L2) a worthwhile contribution? I can fold on my work laptop when I am home. I do need the SMP "password" thingie, I believe.

    I would be very careful folding with a laptop due to the heat generated. I'll PM the passkey to you.

    it's 10%
    and about folders moving to other teams i seriously doubt that as evga will still have the most points folded and that is their goal at the end, plus ocn and evga don't like each other. now ocn or evga going to hwc slightly possible as some are canadian and don't like evga or ocn and want to make sure both teams do not win.

    Good find but I think that is corrected since the last WU is from the 6th of May.

    In the next hour I'll upload my second bigadv WU of the day and tomorrow I'll have another two. I've noticed that every hour that we have over 100K points we gain on those OCNChimpin(dales). We really need our bigadv rigs. To show why look at this table.

    Column 1
    0 CC Team Active clients (within 7 days) Rank Chimp Points Total Folding Points
    1 Beavers_Gone_Bananas 319 1 39.48 9,169,832
    2 OCNChimpin 1,766 2 28.94 31,923,008
    3 ChimPowerUp 245 3 25.61 5,565,448
    4 EVGApes 1,357 4 17.72 11,572,918


    If that EVGA team could motivate their members they would kick ass. Evidently they don't have a team leader!

    Just because I put emphasis on our bigadv WUs doesn't mean that all of our GPU WUs aren't appreciated. It takes everybody doing their part to have a successful team.:respect:
