    Hell yeah! I went a month without 8102's on this rig, so it's payback time. It's gonna be a very good Winter for the TPU F@H team(if I have any say in it!)!

    I'm with you Brother! Patio door is open 24/7 with the obligatory "F@H box fan" set on medium. Kinda weird having the folding cart in the middle of my dining room, but who cares...I'm not entertaining anyone.:laugh:

    Gotta admit. I just consumed 2 bottles of Champagne and I'm feeling no pain. Muhahahah!

    Ok, rub it in why don't you! I'm staying away from ebay until i have plans for the next rig. Gotta see what the electric usage is like with 2x 4P rigs first(will be obvious this month).

    Then again, there is the GPU factor to consider as well. Interesting read right here...http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1725242

    I have had at least 9-p8102's(since Thursday) in a row on the Opty 6176 rig. Prob bad luck to talk about it, but just wanted to share. Can't seem to grab one with the 6180 rig :(. With the added GPU's, I hope to keep my average above 1 Million PPD.

    Edit: Got both rigs running 8102's at this moment and should dump 4x -bigadv today. Looks like the planets have aligned for this one.

    And then I got a P6901, then back to p8101's on both rigs:mad:. It was nice while it lasted and I'm looking forward to the next batch. With the GPU's, I should still be able to squeak out 1Mil+ per day.

    Don't know if the GPU3 QRB's will ever be worth it, so I am contemplating building 4P rig #3:eek:. Electrical usage would be the same as now, as I would shut down all GPU based rigs and only run the -bigadv rigs. Need to have this up and running for the Chimp Challenge. What to do.....:rolleyes:

    I suggest that you keep the GPUs going (as who can stand to see good equipment going to waste) and add a third 4P :toast:

    I miss the free folding at work. Smart meters, tiered pricing, and 7661 WU's are ruining my folding life. :cry:

    Ho god.... I just had to make an account here to post.

    This is freaking AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG :twitch::twitch::twitch::twitch::twitch::twitch:


    And I thought I was doing good at 16K PPD.....:respect:

    I don't actually fold for this forum, I fold for Team Jiggmin (I don't think there's any rivalry...)

    Just that someone on the JV forums made a reference to a 4processor Opteron at 48 cores for -hugeadv WU's. So I googled, and this epic build came up....

    If only I had that much $$$!

    They are amazing :toast:

    I have a cheaper 4P build--it's similar to Buck's ones, but has "only" 16 sticks of RAM and the 8c Optys.

    Yeah....I just don't think my parents could handle the power bill if I built this system and ran it for even 8hrs a day :p I'm only 14 :laugh:

    but at that point it's kind of like if you're going to spend that much, you might as well and go all the way for the 12cores. :rockout:

    However, I saw in one of his snapshots of the 2nd system he had the two back CPU coolers running on top of each other. I would have oriented the second cooler opposite of how he did it and put a small divider in between to direct the air upwards. It might reduce airflow a little, but it's probably better than cooling the CPU with already warmed air.

    Well, I know that Buck pays for his own electricity, but I'm at school right now so electricity is included with the dorm bill. That's what keeps the farm going :toast:
