    A big thanks to El Fiendo and Bogmali for taking a shot at the -bigadv work units with their i7's. If all goes well, I will be joining the ranks of i7 shortly.:rockout:

    Congrats to Bogmali for cracking 14 million :toast:

    I've gotten a passkey set up in the Notfreds client. However if I read it right, you need a completely different image and VM program to do it. I've yet to find a good guide for it, though I'd heard EVGA is supposed to have one somewhere on the forums.

    I've got about 3 steps remaining until I can attempt the -bigadv.

    1) Replace the NH-U12P on my motherboard and retire my spare TRUE.
    2) Try lowering QPI/vtt voltage 1 or more times and testing for stability / temperatures.
    3) Install and set up the new program and image.

    All of these are fairly easy to do, just #2 will require a day or two of stress testing. I'm pretty happy with an average temp of 75 Celsius, though its running with the side of the case off. Also, I'd rather have it running at 72 Celsius day in day out than have it running 75, though I'd say that's probably just down to personal preference.

    I'm looking at a Saturday deployment anyways, as I'm pretty sure I've already gotten my 10 regular WUs completed with my passkey (required). Only things that should be left to do are on my end though.

    I thought about doing the big units when they first came out. I have a dual quad core,
    8 physical cores, which at the time was preferred.

    It seemed to be over my head and I was running [still am] a linux os.

    Here's the guide at EVGA: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=4464

    I can't test it because I don't have anything with more than 4 cores/threads, but it looks as if other people are successful when following it :toast:

    Tonight has us posting up 900k, with our closest threat pulling in 110k less than us. We also stand poised to move up another 2 spots in ranking in 5 days as well. After that we'll have a bit of a long haul at 3 weeks until the next overtake, but its only going to get tougher to ascend the ranks. Everyone has done a great job of making TPU a folding and crunching giant.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    And I'm swiping me some more 'higher up' pie again! Pretty soon I hope to be snatching 3rd place pie regularly. I better not say too much or I'll jinx myself though.

    I should mention that it looks like sir POS has snagged himself some pie tonight. :rockout:

    There we are. Tonight we have 5 milestones cropping up, starting with Munki earning his first 10k. Past that, DanishDevil is earning his 100k milestone and his folding badge. Mstenholm is not too much further ahead, sitting at 250k tonight and TeXBill sits at the halfway point to 1 million. You're halfway to the Millionaire's Club, but I'll set aside a seat now so its ready when you get there. And lastly we have Bogmali who's decided to make F@H his whipping boy. I'm not too sure what else this man can do, but he can sure lay a spanking on scientific simulations.

    Through the awesome power of overclocking, I was able to snag third place pie today. I'm actually quite surprised at the extra performance I was able to sneak out of my setup. I'm eager to see where I lie after this -bigadv attemp, and if I can even get this to work. Half the fun is the challenge of just getting this stuff working. And with HWC pressing on us every now and again, perhaps these -bigadv WUs can help give us another nice and cushy buffer for when they next have a folding contest.

    Pie!

    Not even 'swiper no swiping' could've kept me from this pie. Now the trick will be to repeat this.

    Tonight passes by as another that went without milestones.

    However that's not all. Someone turned up the winter around here, and now I'm left with snowdrifts reaching 2 feet. I can begin packaging and shipping genuine OC snow out to people who are interested. I may even do some sort of styrofoam cooler type scenario.

    All profits will be to fund F@H.

    They picked up almost 100K ppd on the -bigadv work units yesterday. I hope this works for us.

    aww that was a short lived pie... :( i need more power!!!! maybe its time to get some lower powered cards(9500gt) and cut my PCI-E X1 slots and fold on them... If i did that i could have 3 more cards...or possibly try and upgrade my 8800GTS to something alittle better and put the GTS in my dads rig

    i just pushed you up there... you now hold there nearly by yourself i believe... lets see what u can do, to push output. you either lost one 9500gt today, because the psu is too weak,just restarts, it will be replaced tomorrow, with one a friend still has borrowed;)

    i don't trust my crunchers to have crappy PSUs because they are 24/7 under load so i see the PSU being the most important part of the rigs. That is why mine are running Silverstone, Thermaltake,OCZ,Antec
    all of them are more reliable brands.

    no one sells more than generics here... and i couldnt afford normal psus... these were 25 euro... just in my budget
    im at a point, where i simply stagger...in my whole life. i feel like i loose a little more control each day :/
