    The V7 Client only came out in early April. It changed the term advmethods to advanced. Bigadv (I believe, anyway) is actually big + advmethods, and applies only to SMP with 8 or more "cores".

    Is 2.5 hours enough to finish a 6947? It's only at 1% now and won't give an ETA.

    2,5 hrs left until deadline now and I had to take the first rig out of the race, the i7 970 at 4 ghz, because it wouldn't make the deadline. Increased the OC on the 980X rig to 4,7 GHz so that it would make the deadline in it's last WU.

    I'll have to say that it has been a great experience to participate in this race together with this great team.

    I have two gpu's finishing up here. Now that I know a little about folding I am sure I will be contributing steady throughout the year. Congratulations to Buck, TPU and all who participated! Also, many thanks to all who helped me and others to get started in folding and set-up for CC! :toast:

    My Q9550 is at 87% and only 15mins until deadline, dunno if it'll make it. All other clients at 20~55%, will let them run till the end for the heck of it (laptop's running kinda hot at 84 degrees :p)

    We sure gave everyone a run for their money :laugh: Thanks guys for letting me be a part of this team, it's been lots of fun :) Congrats to everyone in our team for their effort! It's been an honor guys :toast:

    Well done guys, both for passing us and for giving HWC a bit of a shock towards the end. ;)

    Keep it up through the year, and we'll see you again next CC. And be aware though; we'll make amends for losing out to you this year. >___<

    This was great fun. Heck of a way to start folding too. I had my two folding rigs back in my mind for a while now and I wanted to get them to do what they were supposed to, but I wasn't expecting I'd end up with my main rig(s) folding like heck as well. Addictive stuff, this chimp challenge.

    Next year I already have plans to really contribute in force, hee hee.

    Finally I can sleep without earplugs, too :D

    I'm inviting you to keep folding for TechPowerUP.
    If you can't fold full time then consider running one or more CPUs or GPUs.

    Thanks again for all your hard work. :rockout:

    You know we also have a pretty strong crunching team:
    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=85784

    I remember you stated that you crunch for XS, but if you ever decide to try out another team...

    We appreciate the massive amout of help that you brought to this challange for TPU:toast::toast::toast:

    I have actually left one of the i7 970's folding (other one is crunching again) and the i7 920 is folding as well. Just for a bit though...
