    Well, if you switch over on the 3rd the i7 rigs running bigadv will have a ~60k pt WU done on the 5th when the challenge starts...the others I'd say late the 4th (I plan on switching over some time the 4th)

    EDIT: @mlee49: Until we hit 20mill points in that period, so probably ~25 days

    I think I read that we are trying to reach 20,000,000 points; and that it would take about 20 days...

    Edit: thanks Ion. I didn't see your reply. So about 25 days then:)

    However long it takes us to cross the 20 million point mark(20-25 days).

    Not if my i7 has anything to say about this.

    too bad I've just sold my 275's today. Maybe the deal will fall through and I'll put'm in the mix :D

    If you are going to fold the -bigadv WUs using a core i7, 3.5Ghz is the cutoff. Anything below that will make you miss a lot of the bonus points. 3.5Ghz will net you somewhere between 50K-54K. Here is a graph of my last weeks production, the numbers that are circled are with -bigadv points included.

    I suppose I can move my AthlonII 2800 over to SMP... I've been interested in seeing what kind of PPD it will give me. My old Kuma did around 1700-1800...

    During the Chimp Challenge I'll fold for TPU. Should be able to contribute 5 9800GX2s, 3 8800GTS 512s, 1 9800GTX, 1 9800GT, and several CPU cores.

    TPU FTW!!

    Quick question... I got a 380 point WU on my SMP client... I did use the -smp switch, and it is using 100% of my cpu, but still, I remember the SMP work units being worth like 1700 points... are there 380 point SMP units floating around now?

    That's before the bonus. In order to see the bonus, you'll need to use HFM.NET

    I have a 380 point A3 core running. FahMon has it at about 1600 PPD and HFM.NET has it at 10200 PPD with the bonus.

    Ooh... what's this bonus you speak of? I always figured it was if you got in in before the preferred deadline, while the final deadline was farther off allowing slower machines to complete it, but F@H is showing the preferred timeline and the final timeline to be exactly the same, heh...

    I have switched my Q9550 over to ChimPowerup to make sure everything updates correctly(passkey & bonus). I will be moving all clients over during the weekend. I would like to see us running Chimpowerup @ 100% by Tuesday, the 4th. Let me know if there are any issues with the time frame.

    I have 7 computers that can help the cause. Getting all of them running is a challenge, and also a huge cost, so I will only be running one, unless someone can give me a good reason to run them.

    Here is what I have

    -Primary desktop, AMD 3800+, HD 4850 (This is what I am going to run)
    -Acer AspireOne, Atom processor, (not going to run)
    -Asus Laptop, C2D mobile, 2.53ghz (not sure if want to run, someone give me the PPD of it, maybe)
    -P4 desktop machine (not going to run)
    -P4 desktop machine (not going to run)
    -P4 Laptop machine (not going to run)
    -IBM 5150PC, Intel 8088 processor, won't run F@H (obviously)

    That's my plan, although I may switch the X4 955 over on Monday so I have any potential issues with the SMP client ironed out first...but the GPU I'll wait until Tuesday

    You get a bonus for every SMP2 WU turned after the initial ten, the bonuses are significantly larger the faster you turn the WUs in
