    I got home and saw the kids' PC is churning out almost 6K PPD. My main rig is 94% finished with it's second 6901: hopefully there are still plenty out there. Didn't you guys run out last year?

    So there isn't any bigadv left to fold ?
    Just made the 50K mark points to chim.... =]
    Not much but better than my 4k points under my nickname.... LoL....
    0.52% from our total.... which is a great thing.... last time I checked my points accounted for 0.86% from our total, which means we got a lot of more help in the mean time....

    Can anyone advise me what settings I should have for the 9800 GT in my kids' PC? I want to make sure I am using it to its full ability.

    The great thing about Nvidia cards is that you just set it and forget it. If you're asking what clocks to run, I believe that you said it is a "green" 8800GT and as such does not have a PCI-e power connector which limits the amount of overclock you can give it. The important OC is the shaders. Just try bumping that up. I run my 8800GT at 1728 on the shaders. (that is conservative, but I like to keep my temps <80) Someone else uses or tried to use one of those, so hopefully they'll speak up.

    Chimp Challenge 2011 End of Day 5 Stats

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Several hours ago ChimPowerUp passed 10 million points for the Chimp Challenge.

    A couple of days ago we had 245 active clients folding for ChimPowerUp.
    As of 2011-05-10 12 pm PDT we have 297.
    I have no doubt that the number of clients folding for ChimPowerUp will continue to go up.:rockout:

    Anyone having trouble "sending" units? I've got one thats been trying to send for a few hrs now, this is what I see in the log. Looks like the server on their end is not accepting the results, but i'm not sure what I can do to try to fix this. BTW its an SMP unit if it matters.

    Thx in advance for the advice

    I've just got into folding with a Norwegian team but they don't participate in this challenge and my competitive side got curios. Usually I run WCG but I heard a lot about folding and wanted to test my crunchers on that to. Only a few machines here doing what they call bigadv, setup looks like this atm.
    [​IMG]
    I don't get the point calculation, how many chimp point will my machines produce? And will it help in getting second place?

    Sorry for the bad english
    HammerON, mstenholm, bogmali and 3 others say thanks.

    I just installed Fahtracker V2 on my friend's computer. I had trouble downloading the clients through the program, but then once they were downloaded Fahtracker V2 wouldn't start the CPU client. No errors, no messages, it just showed as not being started.

    Damn you fahtracker!

    EDIT: Running FAHClient V7 with passkey and SMP with 2600k, working fine now. **** Fahtracker.

    Yes but from what I've read in the first post I need a passkey or something like that to join with bigadv, right?
    I have another SR-2, with two X5670's at 4,0 GHz, that I'm starting up tomorrow and FAH is a good stability test.

    we got 319 clients for ChimPowerUp online now and gained a solid chimp point on ocn last update.
    I know on my end I got 4 big adv dropping over the next 12 hours starting in 5 hours from now. if we keep adding clients at the rate we did the past 48 hours we should take 2nd place before it is said and done. way to go!
    mstenholm and hertz9753 say thanks.
