    That's what she said :p
    I think it's good that T is setting such a high pace, gives us all a nice push! Honestly, when I saw him jump in, it was great motivation for me, and that spirit gets contagious.
    Here's to all that are contributing :toast: :toast:

    Seeing both of you jump in was amazing--those GPUs are just something else. It definitely provides a target for the rest of us to aim at :)

    I can conclusively say that it's you guys that prompted me to pick up the HD7770 :)

    Well damn. First day not in the top-10 in quite a while :ohwell:

    But on a more positive note--t_ski did over 230k points today! :eek:
    And manofthem did nearly 160k! :eek: :respect:

    I'm counting on being at 83-90k PPD with it. If I get desperate, I might have to get a second, but I don't anticipate that happening. Although 110k PPD or so would be awesome.
    It could indeed! Do you have any plans for new HW?

    I'm maxed out for now- will be going down the highway for awhile at just a few mph over the speed limit while sipping on a nice hot cup of coffee and watching the scenery :p

    May consider something new/special for next year but I haven't decided what that is yet???

    Hey guys, what affect does 24/7 crunching have on hardware?

    Theoretically it will kill it faster. It makes the hardware run hotter, which does cut into lifespan. That being said, most modern hardware is built so well that this is irrelevant. I have CPUs that have crunched basically 24/7 for years at this point with no ill effects. Just make sure that temperatures are OK and you'll be fine. I have noticed some PCB discoloration on my GTX460s around the VRMs, but that's after several years of 24/7 FAH (which is far more intensive on GPUs than WCG) :toast:

    Thanks [Ion], my temps are pretty good. My CPU isn't 100% loaded since my pc is running gpu only, and my gpu temps and vrm temps are sitting in the mid to high 30s*C. Eh I won't worry for now. If one of my cards die, my numbers will show it. :D

    Hmm - probably should upgrade that stock cooler on my CPU... But then again, I could just used SpeedFan. =]

    A couple more days spooling up the Opty-6176 rig and if I'm not hitting around top 5, then I'm bringing everything over and "the kitchen sink".
    Prepare Yourselves!

    That's awesome! But I certainly believe you'll need more than you have ATM to hit top-5 ;)

    Remember, we have yet to see these rigs at their full WCG potential. They are O/C'd with ram @ 1600Mhz. Only one way to find out. Now off to Newegg for some HD7770's.

    Wow, my rigs are a meme now?:laugh:

    Apparently they are :toast:

    Unfortunately you can't run the GPU WUs on Linux :cry:

    Don't worry, I've got plenty of open slots for the HD7770's in the form of K9A2 Platinum's leftover from F@H.

    Wow. Cherry pie took 6.55x the PPD, and our team total was up by something like 800%! :eek: :toast:
    Ahh yes, of course. Even if they're running duals that's still ~40k PPD in GPUs/rig :toast:
