    Do you fold for Tom's Hardware Guide? How many threads do you have running on your 5970?

    Yeah, but I was thinking about switching because the community here seems to be more engaged and informed. But Im near 500K with THG, so I am reluctant to start anew. I run two threads, one for each core.

    We'd love to have you on our team, but the act of folding is more important than who you do it for. :)

    I would not be surprised if you switched over to TechpowerUp and 500K worth of points started showing up under your TPU username;). I've seen it happen before.....

    I was using the advanced folding slot options and was used to getting 11k-15k PPD (16 core). So getting 25K+ is a surprise to me. Does anyone know what could be occuring? I'd just hate for this to be a fluke and/or programming error...or is this just how TPU F@H rolls?

    I suspect a TPU gangbang going on in your name, in a friendly kind of way.

    I think someone is folding for you. My best guess would be bogmali, with two GTX 460's.

    Not quite.........But I will today......I'll test out this new GTX580 on his username:D

    I suspect BUCK beating me to the punch on this.

    It's not just bogmali and BUCK anymore...

    I joined the effort with a fresh addition to my server: an 8800GT. I'll probably fold for him until the chimp challenge, then I'll put it back in my name.

    Who knows. Maybe his will to fold is so strong he can manage his computers without even being there?

    Looks like I got the heat issues under control. The 8800GT runs past 90c, but with a house fan planted next to the case it runs under 75c.

    Gotta love the 8800/9800 series. I have a 9800GT that must have a fan(Delta 2k RPM) blowing across it or it will exceed 85c+ and get errors. Great card, but must have been built for Satan's computer:laugh:

    I had a 9800GT with a dual slot cooler once. It ran great... I only put a Zalman VF900 on it because I had one laying around doing nothing.
