    What this represents is an awful lot (some would say excessive amount) of time and money spent on hardware ;)

    I took my i970 & 680 rig out and returned it to folding. It was "only" doing 17-18k PPD. The second place pie is secured for you. ;)

    Once these competitions are over, we will surely need to return the favor to our F@H brothas. You guys have surely helped us tremendously year after year after year. :respect:

    Indeed I will. My GTX460s shall go back on FAH--and perhaps, at least briefly, the GTX470s as well. It all depends on how much I'm able to squeeze out of the HD7770s :)

    Well, at least the brief outage this morning didn't drop our output too much.

    Great work all! :toast: :rockout:

    Can't wait for my 3770K and Z77 board to arrive in a few days so the 2600K can run uninterruped and I add the 3770K, an 1100T and C2E X6800 to the mix. Maybe I can even shut down a few of the "clunkers" that only do 1K or less PPD, but I might just leave them running so they aren't sitting useless in a pile of other parts.

    Great job as usual everyone (and I'm not surprised to see my numbers down a bit as I was relaxing over the weekend). :toast:

    That's a nice collection of new HW you have! :toast:

    A C2XE is awesome--where'd you score that chip?

    Hey--clunkers aren't too bad. I get not quite 10% of my PPD from my DC rigs :)
    As long as you don't have to cover power, I figure why not leave them running :)

    One of my clients (a trophy and awards store I built a server and workstations for last year, and we have them engrave small plaques for work) had a Dell XPS 700 for their lead graphics artist and the motherboard took a dump (nForce 570 Intel edition BTX). They scrapped the HDDs, 7900 GT and DDR2 from the computer but left the Core 2 Extreme X6800 in there. I did play with it a while ago on my ASRock G41M-S3 but I only got to about 3.5GHz on it as the board couldn't handle the power draw. I gave it to my dad to replace the E6400 in the freebie Dell Inspiron 530 or whatever it is, since his 965G board likely wouldn't support the Wolfdale Pentium E6600 I have. I think I'm going to pull it out and slap it in my P5WDH Deluxe 975X, but it might be better off sticking with my X3210 and a near 50% OC on that (2.13 > 3.00 GHz).

    EDIT: Also got a free Dell Dimension 8300 from them with 1GB DDR, P4 HT 478 @ 3GHz, FX 5200 128MB, dead 120GB SATA HDD and a 250w PSU. I'm going to keep it around but likely part it out as my picky AM2NF3-VSTA only likes the GeForce4 MX440 64MB or the Radeon 3850, but the 3850 doesn't play nice in Ubuntu with a proprietary driver on that board and my GF 6200 256MB doesn't work on it at all, so I'm going to give the FX a shot and see if it works. Could use the PSU on a clunker as well if I run out of them, and my 1.5GB X2 4200+ system could use 2GB. :)

    You will be missed, but you'll be back in no time. This will give others some pie :D

    I'd like to take a little break and get in some gaming over the break from work, but I hate to do that in the middle of the competition.

    Good work to all our pie eaters :toast:

    Indeed, I'll be back with everything by Monday. And I should get the new HD7770s Monday or Tuesday for ~60k+ more PPD :)

    Wowzers, can't wait til then! I think I'm going to do some gaming Thursday and Friday; it's been weeks since gaming on my PC :cry: Seeing as you're going to be cranking it Monday at the latest, you can make up for some of my downtime lol ;)

    Congrats everyone.

    Atleast I'm in the 21-30 now. Better then seeing no output from me.

    How does the hd7750 do for crunching? Would it be better then another gtx460?

    I finally broke back in the top 20 with only two WU (1 each). Wished I could get the XML file to work with ATLEAST 3 WU per card. What would be the proper setting for that with NO CPU?
