    Now that seriously sucks, I've had slight issues with no WUs for SMP on the X4 955 but no issues with GPU WUs

    I uploaded my first -bigadv WU and got an A3. That A3 completed this morning around 6:30 AM and I got an -bigadv WU. When my next -bigadv WU completes I'm hoping for some good luck.

    Let me say that I am amazed at the commitment everyone has displayed concerning this contest. There is nothing to be ashamed about last place in the Chimp Challenge. These teams are the best of the elite and this is an excellent experience for us. We need to set personal goals and exceed them. I am extremely proud to fold for this team. I feel that what we lack in ppd, we more than make up for in heart! So, let's keep folding and see where this takes us!

    :toast::toast::toast:

    Edit: Adata has the best RMA support in the world. I RMA'd my ram last week(mailed on Wednesday) and received new sticks today. -bigadv will be running tonight for an additional 10K PPD.:rockout:

    I will absolutely continue to fold for TPU, I have no intentions of jumping ship to HWC, OCN, or EVGA just because they're ahead. To do so would be extremely lame, I am very proud of TPU. However, I was hoping that we might beat out HWC :roll:
    Our PPD is definitely improving recently, which is awesome, and we shouldn't forget why we fold: it's not for the points, sig badges, or the like, but for the science :toast::toast::toast:

    EVGA is massive :eek: Im not bitter, but I think their incentive program (EVGA Bucks) gives them an unfair advantage :mad:

    For pride sake I would like us to not finish last :)

    Sounds like it's time to sell those HD5770s for some Nvidia cards..a 9800GTX+ should have no issue out-folding both of them :)
    2 GTX260s and you'd be looking at at least 15k PPD :cool:

    I love the performance and efficiency of the card for gaming I'm folding with ben because it's all I have, but I will probably buy a card or two for folding :)

    Well, if you can get a 9800GTX+/GTS250 for under $100, it's a pretty good card, good for ~6.5k PPD or a GTX260 can usually be had for $135 and does ~8k/day. If you can find a 9800GX2 (basically 2 9800GTXs glued together) they are around ~175 typically and do ~11k PPD

    I think we should go for 20 mil regardless if we win or not.

    I uploaded my 2nd -bigadv WU a couple of hours ago and got another one. By now I would have thought :respect:bogmali would have put out 697,964 points all by himself.:)

    If it wasn't for the chimp challenge I would be shutting down some of my video cards as the temp in the back room where I keep 5 rigs is over 95. The only thing keeping those rigs alive is a 20" fan.

    How about this Buck? Are we going to make this chimp #3 overall?

    That's one of my GTS 250 cards. The other one runs so hot that it has to be freezing outside if I want to use it to fold.

    Generally regarded as ~6000 PPD cards (with overclocking)

    Edit: The 1GB versions are more energy efficient. No, it doesn't make sense to me either.

    ~6-6.5k PPD each
    I'm also having temperature issues, my rig is in the room where I sleep, which makes it worse, but I'll suffer :rolleyes:
