    I woke up to find a rig with my 470 and 465 gone cuckoo. I had to reboot to get it running.
    All I've been getting is 611 WUs so I've been throwing the per verbal rocks at Buck for being so damn lucky. I added the above flags and both cards picked up 925 WUs.

    I shutdown all my other clients running 611 WUs and added the flags. They restarted the 611 WUs and now two have finished picking up a 912 and 925 WU. Look at that PPD go up!:toast:

    CP, glad to see your admission. Good thing this addiction only harms your wallet. :rockout:

    Let me outline my own 12 step program.

    Step1. Start folding
    Step2. Start tweaking
    Step3. Buy more/better equipment.
    Steps 4-12. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as often as you're able.

    Isn't first step to admit your addiction? And then fold for the hell of it from there on. The way my puny 450 folds now on a 925 pointer I wish that I had some good slots to put more in. My wifes PC houses a 250 and it keeps re-starting (ok, once or twice per day) and I bought her a nice Enermax since the old PSU was running at 11,6 V. Didn't help, so no free slots there. My daily rig has a tiny Corsair 650W and I use all the 12 V plus a bit (and slots). My -bigadv rigs will never see a GPU3 card as long as they are folding -bigadvs ($0.35/kWh makes it a unwise decision). That leaves me with no choice other then to enter a new rig. Where do I put it so my wife wouldn’t see it? Garden sheed, she never goes there? Got power and some bikes that gets cold during winter. Hmm....

    That is why I try to optimize my folding. I'm currently using $20/day and the four boxes acount for 60%. When I crunch (waiting for the right server to be up) I run a 260 and a 9800 GXT+ otherwise they "rest".

    Edit: Wrong kWh consumption number.

    That makes sense :)

    I would think that any sort of DC would be prohibitively expensive with electricity prices like those :shadedshu
