    I'll jump in. Stopped when the bills got high and i moved to ATi, but this shouldn't hurt.

    I'll see if i can go nVidia for then :D

    What are the details of it?
    Do we just have to run F@H like normally for the week?
    Or is it a separate thing that we'd have to sign up for/dl and configure?

    Im down, its just that May means it will be HOT! I have heard of the competition before, but I don't know all the details.

    If its only for a short time I will also move my i7 from Crunching to Fold as well. :rockout:

    hey bub, nope all we would need to do is make a new TPU forum acc, and F@h for that account.
    So say I create an account here on TPU called "TPU-F@H-CC" or something, then I would set up a pass key for it so that al us Bigadv Linux and Notfred folders can utilise our rigs fully.

    then we all would need to set up our clients to fold for that nmae for team 50711 for the whole duration of the CC period.
    So your config for folding would be

    Name: TPU-F@H-CC
    Team: 50711
    passkey: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    I would submit this to the event organiser and when the time comes we all alter the config of our clients for a few days and fold like mad :D:D:D

    hope this helps you understand it ;)

    I'm in then! Let's see if TPU can take the world by surprise! :)
    After I get my main rig up and running again, would someone be willing to help me out w/ the f@h config on it so I can get the best out of my stuff on it?

    For this project I will use an i7 920 that I got from the late Jon Magoon and have it fold in his memory. Will switch it back to crunching when the challenge is over.

    If I get an nVida card before the Challenge, I should be able to do 4-5k, otherwise I'm looking at ~1.3k. I may switch my X4 955 over from WCG, I'll have to think that over

    I have a couple of unregistered 8800GTS 640 that I will be doing a step up once EVGA comes out with their GF100 line-ups. Leaning towards the GTX470 due to the launch pricing:shadedshu Will hopefully have them folding when this challenge starts;)
