    She's folding right now! Picked up a P8101 core A5 -bigadv with a TPF of 14:27. This equates to roughly 316K PPD. I still have alot of optimizations to run through to get my TPF down. Gonna wait to flash the board, as this voids my warranty:eek:

    316k PPD from one rig??? :rockout::rockout::toast: :eek:

    Tomorrow's points should be phenomenal :D

    Do you think you can get another nearly 200k PPD with optimizations?

    Picture of it folding? :D

    This work unit(p8101) is not the fastest they have, but I should be able to get it into the 400K ppd range. This is stock @ 2.5Ghz and ram @ 1333mhz. I'm gonna quit fussin with it and let it settle in to fold and drop the TPF as much as possible.

    Screenshot which is a photo(don't know how to take a screenshot in Linux yet).

    You can still be #3, which is a very respectable position. Perhaps with my GTX470 and better WUs I can be #4...I guess we'll see :)

    Got it up to 365k PPD with a TPF of 12:54. To think that I have not even overclocked it yet.

    A fellow folder over at OCN has an identical setup. He has flashed to the [H]bios and has a 12.5% O/C and Ram @1200Mhz for net PPD of 445K on the same work unit. I will aim for the same O/C, but want to set the ram closer to 1600Mhz which should net better TPF.

    So far CPU temps are good, but the board and VRM's are toasty and will only get worse with the O/C. I've got 3 fans blowing across the Mobo now and I may fab some heatsinks for the 2 sets of VRM that have no heatsink. Bringing a infared thermometer from work to check board temps tonite.

    I install Turion Power Control and changed some bios settings. Not done optimizing yet, but I will dump the 1st WU around 7PM EST tonite.

    Can you create a HFM website for this so we can drool over it in real-time? :D

    Good idea I don't think buck considered the community expense when pricing the build someone should warn him quick

    Very nice Cap!

    I'm currently folding a similar project and my TPF is 26:06 on 2 X5680 Xeons (Linux 12.04).

    Here are some pics of the half-ass cooling setup that I have. VRM temps range from 45-62c on the surface of the chip. Does anyone know an acceptable ceiling for VRM temps?

    The cardboard is directing the CPU heat away from the PSU's. They were gettin' cooked yesterday:eek:

    And the long awaited Screenshot! Yeah for the Linux noobie!

    Do you have any way to prop up the board to get some airflow under it?

    You can slide a couple of fans or even a laptop cooler under there to pull in some cool air/pull out hot air from underneath.

    Great Idea Norton:rockout:. I'm going to buy some wooden slats about 3/4" thick and place them every 6" under the mobo. Should let some airflow through there and possibly lower socket temps.

    How much hotter do the "back" two CPUs run? I'd imagine that the hot air they get from the front two wouldn't help, but is there even anything that could be done about it?

    They run 3-4C hotter sucking in that warm air from the 2 front CPU's. You can see it in the temp log below. Look for nodes 0-1 and 4-5. Regardless, i'm still in great shape with the Hyper 212+'s. The goal is to keep it 55c or below. Throttling takes place @ 70c.

    just curious since i never dealt with servers or anything. what the measures on that board? that thing looks super long. what model is it? curious to know what else is on that board like a freakishly long pci/? slot. Its wierd not seing pcie slots but i guess thats implemented on a later model along with the extra sata ports.

    you got a figure/$$ on the total of this? That is some serious ppd man.

    Now that is amazing! :rockout:
    Is that our best single-day on record?

    EDIT: Buck, have you flashed the BIOS with the OC one? If so, how is it going?

    No it was around 2 Mill when a single -bigadv gave 62 K for 8 tread systems and 92 k for 12 treads. Even I had days around 200 K.
