    Power outages are rare here in NC, only usually in September/early October (hurricane season)

    @ Ion i am crunching at 95% on both cores now. I don't have it on 100% so it leaves alittle power for the GPUs to fold. i found a tweak that lets ATI cards fold using less CPU power (0-5% reported my CPU usage is about 7-8%)

    Well, it sounds like I won't be overtaking you then after all :(
    But I'm still glad that you are able to contribute more to WCG :toast:

    I really don't care if I'm getting trounced be everyone and only getting 1pt per WU, as long as the work is being done for WCG I'm happy. Points and position just aren't important to me, I only see of them as a way to keep track of how much work I've done for WCG

    nice way to look at it. Sometimes people get warped up in there rank and there daily output (has happened to me before) but that is a good thing most of the time because it causes people to crunch harder and makes the team better

    Can't believe that I am already at 200K. Still deciding on the final fate of me E2200 and looking for parts for my i7 860 build (need to find some deals!)

    you know, we have wind parks,nuclear power,coal,gas,solar
    when we buy our electricity, we can even choose how much % of it are nuclear/solar/wind energy etc.

    it may take some time to reach the 200k;)

    I killed my socket A rig tonight :cry: I mad a stupid mistake and tightened the heatsink on WAY too tight and killed the board and crushed the CPU core. I tried a different CPU and a stock heatsink also cleared the CMOS.

    What type of heatsink was it? I still have that OE Socket A MB we were talking about a few months ago. One of the the retention clips on the socket is broken, and the NB might need new thermal paste. Is it something you can work with?
