    Welcome :toast: and thank you!

    What do you have folding if you don't mind me asking?

    Yes, please give us a rundown of your rigs. We are hardware geeks after all;).

    First, I would like to explain the post above. I was a little misleading. I did fold for default, but more recently folded for one of the top folding teams. As some of you may know, the bigger something gets, the more problems arise. I didn't state that I fold of them because I didn't want you to think I was trying to sabotage the contest, they were one of the other teams in the contest. So, I'd just like to say sorry to all for being misleading.

    Now onto the better stuff.

    Rig #1 Main internet rig for the household. I7 875k @ 4.3, smp 8 bigadv only, win 7.
    Rig #2 My gaming rig which doesn't seem to game very much. I7 980x @ 4.3, smp 12 bigadv only, win 7.
    Rig #3 Dedicated folder. I7 950 @ 4.0, smp 8 bigadv only, linux os.
    Rig #4 Dedicated folder. I7 980x @ 4.1, smp 12 bigadv only, linux os.
    Rig #5 The best for last, dedicated folder. Sr-2, dual xeon X5670's @ 4.1, smp 24 bigadv only, linux os.

    Nice stuff you got there. My guess of some GPUs and some "big" CPUs was slightly off, for the better :)

    And as Bogmali said below - I hope that you like pie.

    Just so we are clear bro, it doesn't matter who you have folded for before and who you are folding for today as long as you are folding;) No need to apologize cause people should be thanking you for doing this.As far as the "sabotage" thing, I don't think you possibly do that (or anyone for that matter). We do thank you for switching to our team but like I've already said, all teams have the same exact goal and that is to find a cure;)

    Well since you already told us that you've folded for another team before, might as well just spit it out bro:D I am curious as hell:laugh:


    Oh and can you say make way for him in the top ten daily folders:toast:

    It was the team with the bucks program if you must know. I might not be in the top ten overall for a while, ppd yes, but I'll get there.

    Thanks for pointing it out Bog ;)

    One rig down and out of the country. I can do better, just need to refill my water circuit and I can fight him off for 100 days or so :)

    I'll still give them 350,000 to get my bucks every month, but that's about it.

    350k a month? I guess that is a manageable figure come to think of it since you have the hardware;)

    350k per month. A high clocking GTX 460 or a stock GTX 470 would get that. Please tell.:)

    There's 2 tiers, one at 150k, and the other at 350k for each month. Each one gives you five bucks. The amount earned adds up and can be used on purchases through them only, on new or their refurbished hardware. You have to register for their website, or forum and your folding name has to be the same too. It doesn't add up to alot, but it's something to use towards future upgrades.

    As much as it entices me to participate, I think I'll pass. Their products are great but their warranty stinks and that is why I hate them with a passion.

    Wait, you need to report in this forum to join the team?

    Hardware specs: as shown on profile (running 4x command line clients and 1x GUI)

    Comparing to you guys, mine are like toothpicks but I do what I can =/

    No,:roll: not this team. I'd leave if we were that militant. We just want to say hi and thanks for helping the science and our team.

    Wait, are you running 4 uniprocessor clients? You'd get MUCH higher PPD running SMP. Advise you switch to the FAH GPU Tracker V2 or the V7 Client. If you need help with this, please post in "TPU's F@H Team" or "*** F@h Tech Assistance Thread ***".

    Believe me, you don't have toothpicks.:laugh:

    Not that much, at least.

    Uni-what? Does that mean folding where all four cores are used? I think each core was folding one of the clients and then the GPU was folding a fifth one.

    Basically, sounds like you're using 4 clients for 4 processor cores. Whereas the most efficient way would be to run 1 client that uses all 4 cores (SMP client). It's designed to make better use of multiple cores so should yield better PPD too.

    You can use this guide by Oily_17 to setup your 1 SMP and 1 GPU client:

    If you have any problems with setting that up, you can post in the tech support thread so that others can help you: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98921
    Zyon and thebluebumblebee say thanks.
