Thanks for volunterring to build a sr-2 rig with quad 580's
Trust me, if I had the funds I would have.
Oh me too man! That would be such an amazing rig to have! All it would do is fold and id run the q6600 as a gaming rig
I had plans to build something similar this upcoming year. For now they look delayed but I haven't completely forgotten about it.
I just applied at best buy and being 16 if i could get that job id be makin some bucks and could hopefully build a sr-2!
Good luck bro
Thanks man! I got a friend who works there in the geek squad tech department and he's also 16 and he doesn't know squat compared to me Thats the position their hiring for also so hopefully i get it! I honestly don't know how he is working on there. He said updating my gpu drivers will kill my cards and that you can run 16gb of ram on a 1366 thinking it's dual channel. He didn't even know triple channel existed
I wanna give a big shout out to Buck_Nasty, bogmali and TeXBill for helping me regain my points! Thanks so much guys, you can now configure your clients back to your self or keep helping me out if you would like Now let's watch my PPD decrease and there PPD increase!
Yeah you gained in the ranks pretty fast, lol! +418 ranks in the past 7 days. Wow.
Haha it was definitely nice! Now i'll be averaging about 20k PPD by myself
Looks like your buddy needs to join TPU.
Defnitely! I learned everything over at OCN. I started getting into computers like march of this year built my first rig, wasn't very good sold my comp 2 months later then after summer i just had to get a comp again!
OCN was the easiest forum for me to find and it's a very large forum so their is more voices/opinions. I like TPU much better though after learning everything i have from OCN as the people are much more helpful here and it's a much friendlier community. You don't all the dick heads here that you do at OCN that think they know everything and act like your a idiot for a question..
OCN is not bad at all, I am a member there too and I got a few posts as well. So I've been around that place, but TPU feels like home bro, no other forum has felt like that at all.
My pleasure! I have retaken my 4 GTX460's but the other 2 I won't be able to do until tomorrow so they will still fold for you
Yeah exactly.. OCN is just so large it's hard to feel like it is here.
Sweet! There's another 15k points for the night!
Dec 12, 2010 Pie!
Tonight MStenholm rises to the top as his 189K takes the cherry.
He is one of seven 100K+ folders. I suspect this might the last Pie Josh will see for now.

Congratulations to all pie club members.
Our yo-yo kept spinning while the HWC string must have broke as it was going up.
We've disappeared as a HWC threat.

We have another pair of millionaires tonight.
First we have NastyHabits making it to 11 million. congrats.
Then it's Niko084 coming in half way to his next million. Congrats.
Next working towards their 1st million are Josh154TPU, MetalTom and PVTCaboose1337.
Finally heky, xbonez and sphizx continue to pursue their folding badge.
And now the certificates.
Not saying this will make "ALL" the difference, but it'll sure help.
-The 5870 only crunched temporarily due to heat. But what I'll do is leave it on as long as I'm not home. If I'm not home, the heat won't bother
-The 3rd rig I finally got Windows installed on it after all the issues I had. So, when I get home today from work I'll install the drivers and fire it up, counting on everything going good.
The 5870 should put out about 1.5-2k PPD like this and the GTS 250 in the 3rd rig full time should do I assume like 5-6kppd. So Let's see if we get back on the threats list.
Anyone notice that Fits seems to be gone?
Grats stoners! Im looking to get that first mil by my own now!
Oh, people have been helping you. I was wondering how you managed that! lol.
I was suppose to have a GTX260 arrive today
Hopefully i can sell my 8800GTS's, GTX260 and get a GTX460 in a trade, then maybe a 2nd.
@ION, he has. But he comes and goes. Hopefully he can comeback soon.
Are those gts's 512mb versions?
Ahh, that makes sense. Hopefully he'll be back with his 100k+ PPD soon though
Naw, 640MB badboys
Aren't the 512mb's better?
