    Going to have to make you work for my slice of pie Buck :)

    Should have a 940 here tomorrow for my K9A2, all I need now is to fill those 4 empty slots with some folding power :D

    Hmmnn, all of my crunchers are set to no more than 70% (all 44 cores), wondering what my output would be like had they've been set to 100%:D I just refuse to do it because I've had some stability issues in the past so I kinda like learned my lesson:(




    :slap: Not surprised at all:rolleyes: and El FYI, I'm not just a member I'm also the President (MPA Club):laugh::roll:........:confused: Ow is that what you call an "Ego"? OK so I'm guilty then:D

    You can fix that, TRUST ME... you can run at 100% and not have stability issues. I ran over 140 cores for over two years without issue. Every box overclocked, dual cores and quads. All on air in 80-95f ambient. It can be done:rockout:

    I will probably do that to the dedicated ones that don't do but fold and crunch;) I will leave my main rig at 70% since I use that for everything else:D

    I didn't miss it persay. There was a link there, but instead of being pointed at "http://img.techpowerup.org/090817/160809944.png" it was pointed at "http://techpowerup.org/uploaded.php?file=090817/160809944.png" the uploader page. That's what I get for a late night post. Thanks for the cover though.

    Ok, you can have the self proclaimed title President of the MPAs, but its only self proclaimed! We have to wait and see what they're for, which one of these days I'm going to spitball some ideas at Buck and perhaps Paulieg.

    That's what I want to see! You guys got to fight, for the right, to PARRRRRRR-Tay!

    Updated the post to show the Pie!

    If you want to get the last folding update you have to be a late night guy.:D I find that I fall asleep before the last update but last night I checked if I had used enough electricity when I got up to visit the little boys room! Today I can't get into the Free-DC site.

    I won't be getting any pie tonight as two of my cards stopped folding. I had to erase the folders and restart the cards to get them to start folding.

    That's ok, I'm going to be dropping off the radar soon here, so my place will be up for grabs. I'm about to part out 1 rig entirely as most of my stuff I said I was going to sell has already sold without the need for a sale thread. After this I plan to be coming back i7. The only problem is I've got a few RMAs to go through and a bunch of home repair as well. Some lucky chaps are going to get 3rd place pie for a few weeks.

    And work for it I will:p. I have some nice expectations for the 9550 with a healthy overclock on water.

    The K9A2/PII 940 is a new rig for you? If so, very nice. What are you planning to fill it with?

    Only 18 to go, you'll be there in no time. My post is late again but not too bad. I always forget how long system builds take.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    We have a new name tonight stepping in to remove Dustyshiv from the MPAs. DanMiner skyrocketed into contention today with a PPD spike straight out of nowhere. Do we have a new top 10 contender?

    Lampmaster flys past 100k, followed by paulieg smashing through 50k. I do believe he is holding true on his promise to hit the top. He recently pegged 10k on Extreme Overclocking Stats, but it looks like Free-DC had a different cut off. Looks like he's coming for pie tomorrow though.

    Buck stepping and almost knocking Oily out of the WCG pie tonight. Looks like Buck might be more of a regular to the MPA function. Having been ejected again, Dustyshiv can only shake his fist at DanMiner and prepare for another night. Nicely done everyone.

    Had the mobo for awhile now, just never got round to getting a CPU, found the 940 cheap so could not pass it up (damned post is delayed till wednesday :banghead:).
    Hope to add 2 more GTX260's to the ones I have and put them all on the board, but that will have to wait for a few weeks, I have other things to sort out first.

    I should be getting my Q9550, for my everyday rig, up and running within a couple of weeks as well (if I ever stop buying more parts :)) I tried it out under water but was not that impressed, couldn't get 4Ghz stable, but I will try again when all the case/parts are together.

    Post up your results when you get yours running, hopefully you will see 4Ghz from yours.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Oof. Looks like I'm booted straight out of the top 10. Lampmaster surging upward to claim the last slice as DanMiner holds steadily onto 9th place. This looks like pie could see quite a few different hands in the coming weeks.

    Dustyshiv being denied an MPA again, but he is joined by Buck tonight. Oily_17 played a hand in denying WCG pie to Buck tonight and has successfully kept him clear of the MPAs. Competition is starting to heat up for these here.

    Maybe I should take it easy on the big man ;), and let him have some pie...ahh maybe not :D

    Have a feeling he will end up crushing me when he gets all his rigs going.

    I say kick him all you can while you still can. If you know he's going to be out of your reach, then dominate the spirit and life out of him while you still have a chance. No mercy Oily. No mercy.

    Buck! Hope you get pie tonight! :toast:

    I'm not sure, it looks like it usually gets updated around 9pm MST, and that's usually the final cutoff I see when I post up, so in about 5 hours. It seems to vary though and I haven't been able to peg down a system their updates run on. Most times I log on and hope that the pie matches 'todays top 10' which is usually wildly different from other sites (not unexpected). I've checked at 1 am before and it was changed, but last night I didn't get at the computer until 1:30am and it was still the prior day. It's kind of puzzling.

    There's two questions here. One, when do I have to have a run complete to be used in an update? Second, when does the final update occur?

    I haven't a clue to the first question. For the second question I have found that the final update usually occurs just before midnight, CST. At times I have to wait until 1 am or later if I'm awake. I'd agree it is puzzling!

    Well, I think he has me beat today :mad:

    One of my rigs was BSOD'ing, nailed it down to a stick of ram.That's the third set of ram I have killed so far on my crunchers...I am running out of DDR, I think it is time to RMA some of the dead ones.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Lampmaster cold cocks me straight out of pie tonight by a mere 351 points. Aided by theonedub who grabs his first slice tonight. First off, I'll have my revenge. Second, let's see who else you can knock out.

    So that's two F@H multimillionaires coming? Or were we up to 3? We'll catch when you guys pass that, promise. However, here and now we have AthlonX2 snatching a cool 100k. Congrats dude.

    Lost 2 posts to this connectivity issue thing. So, lets try this again!

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Solaris has his way with me tonight, thoroughly demonstrating dominance by beating me with a mere 70 points. Such a low point spread is a smack to my face and a clear challenge on his part. At least I think it is. He grabs himself 10th place pie tonight and fulfills his earlier claim of glory. Meanwhile, Lampmaster makes himself at home in the top 10 snacking on pie.

    We have vanyots hitting a cool 500k, which is pretty cool because I don't think I've seen vanyots around the forums. Perhaps just a lurker? Anyways, congrats on your 500k dude.

    Tonight Buck gets a hand from mike_047 in denying Oily an MPA. Both had a nice showing at the WCG pie dispersal, cementing their names into the MPAs tonight. Mike comes back to reclaim some prior glory and show that he is still an MPA contender. Let's see if he can hold on to it now.


    Bogi, I guess you're going to have to wait till tomorrow to see a certificate up here.
