    Congrats team for an extra-ordinary turn out. With that being said, my rigs are now switched to my normal username.

    Big shout out to the TPU WCG team as well. Will be moving my dedicated crunchers back tonight.

    I've got all my rigs back to my username.

    A big thanks to our TPU WCG crunchers.
    So far I've got 12 cores back to crunching and by tomorrow I should have another 12 cores.

    Good job guys. I folded for you during this contest cause you all seem like a very good group of guys. I figure I dropped about 200k for you guys but it's time to go back a fold under my other team. I'll drop in from time to time.
    Keep up the fold!!

    I have everything back to normal now.

    Bow: I'll have my GTX260 fold for you for a week to recoup losses (and most likely more) from the 9600GT folding in the Chimp Challenge.

    The points don't really matter to me, as long as I'm folding... that's why I was in this year's Chimp Challenge. The 9600GT is yours, so I use it to fold under your name. The GTX260 was just a neat little idea I had... no big deal.

    Great work TPU! You guys really turned up the heat there for the last days. It was great seeing the competition still going strong in the last days.

    Fold on everyone!

    Guys help me choosing a new hardware to f@ld... =]
    I know best bang for the buck is a i7-2600k, right ? But which motherboard can take it to a nice clock speed with less money ? It can be mini itx / m-atx.... atx also, but I'd rather have a small format.
    Well it doesn't need to be a world record grade motherboard, only good enough to push a nice clock.
    Also what about VGA ? I suspect it's a 560TI or the future comming 560, right ?

    The idea is keep bang for the buck for points.... =]

    I would go with two GTX 460 768mb on a ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) or a BIOSTAR TP67XE (B3) MB. Small boards are hard to find for the Sandybridge.:)

    What about a GA or Asus board..... ? And something around $100 ?
    I'm really not too sure about asrock quality.... Biostar I know is used to have a nice quality....
    So GTX460 be it.... =]

    You can't go wrong with the 2600K. I have no idea what Motherboard to recommend. I'd be nervous building a 24/7 Folding rig with a $100 motherboard. Here's a build log of one: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=138486

    Don't know what your used market is like, but the other option might be a 1366 socket hex core. PPD in the 60K's.

    The best GPU when considering PPD/watt/$$ is still the GTX460/768MB. The 560Ti will get about 3000PPD more than the 460's, but it uses more watts. I just did the math. Using W1zzard's Peak power consumption numbers, the 460/768MB is at 3.82 points per watt and the 560Ti is at 3.68 points per watt. Assuming 10K PPD for the 460/768MB and 13K PPD for the 560Ti.

    Yes I did.... but I was thinking a little less $$$... :laugh:
    BTW.... this Asrock mobo looks sweet...

    Well... used market for 1366 I would say pretty expensive..... LoL....

    I'll also do some gaming with it, the rig won't fold 24/7... and might also build a 2nd or 3rd one for the next chimp.... this is why I want to keep low profile on the mobo... but as overclocking can get a lot of extra points, it would be good to go to 3.8-4.0ghz..... if it's needed an extra $50-$70 on a mobo to get it to 4.4ghz... well, that's not what I want...

    If you don't end up overclocking, the Xeon E3-1220 seems a good deal to me. 3.1GHz HT Quad for 209.99, same price as an i5 2500K.

    It's starting to look like I've fried a motherboard and severely damaged another. :banghead:

    Going to have to do some figuring to find the problem parts and rebuild around them.

    Well intel ark says it doesn`t have HT...
    neither onboard video...
    also 3.1ghz vs 3.3 from the i5
    8mb cache vs 6mb cache
    80w vs 95w...

    I`m wondering if this extra 2mb would make for the clock difference ?
    15w is nice1, could help while overclocking.
