    When I was bouncing in and out of the WCG Top10, I was running the following:

    Q9550 @ 3.9Ghz
    Phenom X4 9850 @ 3.0Ghz
    Phenom X3 8650 @ 2.8Ghz
    Athlon X2 7750 @ 3.25Ghz
    2 each Athlon X2 4850 @ 2.7Ghz

    So yeah, you may need some more HP.

    Here is what I'm running just so everyone has an idea:

    4 i7 920 (1-3.5Ghz, 3-3.4Ghz)
    1-X3220 3.0Ghz
    2-PII 945 stock @ 3.0Ghz
    1-E5200 stock (part time)

    Yea, I had 0 delusions of making it into the top 10 on one quad alone. I simply wanted to see what a Q9300 would get me so I could get some metric of what I'd need. Bogi, your CPU list is ridiculous.

    Pie!

    Ah, me in 8th tonight is a little better I'd say, though the only reason I'm here is because there seems to have been a stats update issue on all sites I've checked. So if you're looking at EoC stats page, or what have you, we were short yesterday because of this. Took me a minute to figure it out. I'd probably have pulled around 10th place again had everyone updated correctly, much like last night. I need to get at least one rig running soon so I don't drop off as everyone pushes past. Keep up the hard work guys, we need to keep gaining ground.


    Milestones

    Buck_Nasty passes 25,000,000
    deathmore passes 400,000
    EnergyFX passes 450,000
    hertz9753 passes 600,000
    Lampmaster passes 500,000

    2 big numbers being hit tonight, one being Lampmaster's halfway point to the landmark milestone of 1 million points. This next step will be a large one, but considering that its taken just over a month for you to get here, you should see 1 million soon. Congrats.

    [​IMG]

    The second number is Buck hitting a monstrous 25 million. I'm going to take a second and brag for Buck, because he probably never would himself. He's got a point total that beats out all but 192 folding teams. It's a good thing to see that 500USD+ utility bill a month goes to good use Buck. Someone needs to create a program that calculates your effective Teraflops and then measures you against the world's current supercomputers. I'd be curious to see where Buck, or perhaps Techpowerup's distributed computing efforts in general, rank. Congrats on a truly monolithic number Buck.

    Mike misses out on another MPA today, and both Oily and msg nearly joined him which would have marked the first ever there was only 1 MPA winner. Fortunately both managed to cling to 10th place, Oily in WCG and msgclb in Folding. Hopefully msg isn't seeing a recurrence of his prior troubles this week, and it was only a result of the late stats updating.

    I was playing on my gamer for a few hours last night... so that might have been enough to let El Feido sneak up a slot in pie. :shadedshu

    Saturday night it got so hot in my apartment that I had to shut down most of my computers to let the AC regain the upper hand. By the time I got them restarted Sunday I had one hell of a time trying to get that last piece of pie. I had to put up with 90+ temps outside and 80+ temps inside Sunday. Thankfully a cold front came through last night that has cooled it down some.

    Yea, winter is a coming. Yesterday my top floor was colder than the basement where I keep all my rigs. I think this winter in the basement is going to be alot more cozy due to Folding @ Home, which is good because my furnace was only keeping my upstairs warm last winter.

    Oklahoma City. This is probably the worst idea I could come up with but...

    Copy that lat/long into Google map. Scroll in on the green arrow until you get the street view. The deteriorating apartments are to the West. I was going to say to the left but sometimes when I tried it I was looking North and other times South.

    I must be off by a hair!

    Pie!
    [​IMG]

    The top 10 remains around the same, but as a team we've pushed up back to 716k points, which was just 28k short of HWCs production yesterday. I've got a fair amount of my computer parts lined up (now I just need to pay for them all) and my upgrade alone should push more than 28k. On days like this they'd be trailing us. Add on to that the few other systems I know that are getting upgraded here and we're suddenly alot closer than it looked for awhile there. We've got our foothold guys, now we need to keep pushing until we match and past them.


    Milestones

    AthlonX2 passed 450,000
    bogmali passed 8,000,000
    Castiel passed 200
    Crazyeyesreaper passed 25,000
    DanTheBanjoman passed 300,000
    dhoshaw passed 550,000
    Homeless passed 450,000
    InTeL-InSiDe passed 3,000
    Maikel205 passed 30,000
    mike047 passed 4,000,000
    theonedub passed 450,000
    [Ion] passed 4,000

    We've got three milestones tonight, one being a folder's second ever and 2 chasing the heals of Buck as they look to add their own million to their totals. First, congrats to Crazyeyesreaper on his 25k tonight. This comes after several weeks of being inactive, though every bit helps our battle with HWC who're now one place directly behind us. Thank you for your help. :toast:

    [​IMG]

    Next we have 2 one million point additions being made by Bogmali and Mike047 tonight. Bogmali is hitting a staggering 8 million points tonight, which is a rather daunting number for anyone on other teams looking him up, let alone when they see Buck's numbers. Only adding to our already stacked arsenal is Mike047 topping his 4 millionth for Techpowerup. Mike, who has his most contributions under Techpowerup, has closer to 8 million himself. So while today's cert will read 4 million, congrats on your close to 8 too. :toast:

    Mike wins out over Oily tonight in what can only be described as a sparring match between two of them. Mike, you should post up your CPU list so we can see what Oily is up against. That and I'm confident that one day soon I'll be capable of beating him in WCG, I want to see if I feel the same about your set up too.

    ;)

    Hopefully my points should be more consistent from now on.I was having trouble with my Folding cards dropping to 2D clocks.

    Updated all rigs to Windows 7 and forced 3D clocks, so hopefully they will play well and not be on/off anymore.

    Roll on 24/7 crunching and folding.

    Me too Mx500. Though I need something with 6 x PCI-E, and apparently they're really hard to find.

    Pie!

    Guess who we beat tonight. Sorry top 10, Imma let you finish but us beating HWC had the best story ever.

    We may have only gotten them by 4k, but this marks the first day in many months we've been ahead of them. Now this may come on the heels of them losing a chunk of PPD, but keep in mind we are gaining more as well. They likely will rebound in points in the coming days, I'm not sure why they've been down, but we will do our best to keep in stride. You guys are doing a great job at catching up to them.

    But you know I didn't realize until today that we're doing just under 750k. On top of that we're team #55 and are getting ever closer to hitting the top 50. We aren't just folding to beat HWC anymore in my eyes. EoC says it will take us two months to get there, what say we crank it up some more and show both HWC and the top 50 teams what TPU is made of.


    Milestones

    A_Cheese_Danish passed 100,000
    Castiel passed 500
    Dustyshiv passed 1,700,000
    EnergyFX passed 500,000
    hertz9753 passed 650,000
    InTeL-InSiDe passed 4,000
    thebluebumblebee passed 950,000
    tofu passed 500
    tofu_TPU passed 500
    [Ion] passed 5,000

    Why not another milestone filled night after a milestone full weekend? Tonight ACD (A Cheese Danish) and EnergyFX have their name in lights as they cross some very nice milestones. ACD hits his first 100k, and in a few days will break into the TPU top 100. Congrats so far man.

    [​IMG]

    EnergyFX earns mention tonight with his 500k milestone. In one months time you've accumulated 500,000 points with us and gained to 43rd place. That's pretty good for a first time folder. I took alot longer to get started myself, and I've been fairly quickly progressing. Very nice, I have to say.

    And Mike retains his position tonight. I think he said he recently turned some machines back on because it was starting to get colder. I may be wrong, but whatever the case I hope to see his name become more regular up here.

    A quick edit due to me using the wrong WCG pie to figure this out. As such I missed Oily (got :nutkick:ed). Fixing that on up.

    Whoops, you know I didn't notice but I used 2 days ago WCG pie in the WCG pie thread to calculate it last night. Didn't even look at the date stamp. Unfortunately it seems to have gotten missed for WCG'ers last night, but let me just edit that up a notch. Sorry.

    No worries, I am only messing with you :)

    I think all the Pie you are stealing is slowing your PPD down!!
