    I got my new quad amd 920 in when this starts and my file server when I make my ghetto hdd holder ... server has 2 quad opti's in it so it should crunch well .... also does f@h work with cpu and video well? WCG doesnt really scale too well

    Depending on your CPU clock, you can pull 6K+ ppd from Phenom II x4's. If you notice any client's over-running others, PM me for a quick fix.;)

    You can use both simultaneously, but the CPU must be set to "idle" and the GPU to "low" in the client config settings. It will work like a charm!

    I thought only the Linux one did that :confused:

    Guys I need two more cards!! I'm going to convinced the wife her computer is broke(just pull the card and put it in my machine).

    Anyone hook up 2 cards for me? I'll pay shipping, run them 24/7 and put all 3 of my PCIE slots to use :rockout:

    The SMP does use all 8. I have the same MB as you and I have overheated the NB once. Make sure you keep your north and south bridge cooled and you should be able to get at least 14,000 PPD with your OC.

    I'll do what I can with my core I7 860 but I can't get too wild cause the parents pay the electric!

    I wish I had 2 more GB of ram though so I can run -bigadv. That would be awesome. Whats the best client to use and how do I optimize it for a core i7 860 at stock or 3.5ghz if I can get 2 more gb of ddr3.

    I would be willing to pay shipping both ways if someone is willing to lend me 2gb of ddr3 ram for the duration of the challenge. Deal? You can hold a deposit on paypal if that makes you feel more secure. I run 8 threads of 3.5ghz and we get bonus points!

    I have been crunching 100% since i built this rig. I have a spot cool blowing right on the NB and some of the air blows on the vrm. The SB stays cool from the dual 80mm fans right by it from the GPU :)

    temps
    CPU 62c(hottest core)
    GPU 65c
    NB 56c
    SB 48c
    mobo 38c

    I think everything is good. And that is everything overclocked and folding 100%

    I myself can also use 2 more cards to fold 24/7 and will pay shipping :)

    POS, think we could start a thread about getting people to give a discount or just rent a couple cards to do some folding on?

    I thought about pm'ing a couple super members to see if they had an extra card or two they could lend.

    keep in mind i am running 3.9ghz so that is going to mess with PPD alittle also i have alot of things running on the rig
    possibly.. It doesn't seem to be a bad idea. I already got a 8600GT but still have 2 extra slots


    only problem i can see is the cost of shipping to send them to us and back to them... so it would be best if they would "donate" cards to us for folding... I know people of TPU are willing to help alot but i think that maybe a bit much to ask

    Looks like it won't let you save to the C:/ drive. Are you logged in as the admin?

    When my HX1000 arrive I will start helping.

    Probably only at night though, (~8-12 hours per day).

    Mailman, did you ever get the program working? It would do all the config file related items.
