    I want to say that I am very proud of what Team TPU has accomplished. In the last year we have more than quadrupled our production as we climbed into the Top 100 teams. We have good momentum and we will continue to climb upward. The top 10 producers for TPU should be proud of themselves.

    Later this week I will be cutting back my production to about 40K PPD. I have folded very hard over the last year and need to taper off a bit. The summer heat is unbearable here in South Florida and is taking a toll on me and my rigs. Looks like I will be selling 3 complete turnkey rigs (8800GS/9600GSO). If there are no takers, I will mothball them until the Fall, when temps become cooler. I may re-tool in the Fall/Winter for more production. The Folding/Crunching teams will have first look at parts before I go public with them. Keep up the great work guy's!!!

    :toast:

    Below are the Spec's on the rigs:

    3 Identical rigs(different cases)
    MSI K9A2 Platinum 4x PCI-E
    AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400
    4x EVGA 8800GS/9600GSO 384mb DDR3 (96SP)
    Antec EA-500D 80+ Certified PSU(2x22A rails)
    1GB DDR2 800Mhz Memory
    160GB Hard Drive
    Windows XP Pro

    Rigs avg between 12K to 17K PPD depending on Work unit.

    I understand about the heat, I about burned up last summer with my farm. I'm down to 8 rigs now.

    Probably freeze to death next winter, though:D

    I got a feeling that all those 8800 320s and 9600 GSOs are gonna be replaced with bigger guns.

    You need to jump on all of them to keep up with mine and Mmaakk's i7 rigs and PPD production:rolleyes: All this farm talk with no results:D

    @Buck-sorry to hear and I totally understand the heat issue. I am going to pick up my production a little bit to compensate for your downgrading (pay attention El Fuego sp..)

    The Fire? Huh, you know that is a better name than El Fiendo. I should PM W1zz and see if he'll accommodate me.

    And don't tempt me, I'd give anything to see you wallowing in anguish.

    I'd take everything but the case. Not that I don't like your case picks, but you know shipping and all.

    Well, if the shit fest over @ R3D keeps up, I may be surging my production on the rackmounts for TPU. Currently, my rackmounts are just sitting idle due to the heat... but I guess since I should be getting 1 or 2 Istanbul's in the next 4-6 weeks (fer FREE :cool: ) I could beat the crap out of the Barcelona's before I retire them.
    EDIT
    So maybe I will be able to pick up your slack BN.

    Buck, we have been destroying Work Units for I while together :toast:

    I'm witness of your growing numbers and with it, all the hardware and elec. $$$$$ :eek::eek:

    I see you beyond your 16M points. If we have somebody to crown when the matter is F@H over TPU's territory, THAT'S BUCK :cool:

    So... I don't feel sorry for your decision in cutting back. Do whatever is necessary, cos over here you will always be KING.

    Cheers

    What you need is a "heat pump water heater", if you could find one. These pull heat out of the house and into the water. Cooler house, cheap hot water.

    I hear you about the heat man. My garage workshop is hotter than hell, and I'm needing to run WCG at only 70% on two of my rigs to keep temps down. I'm sure the rest of the team will pick up the slack for you. That's what team is all about.
