    Just install the client from the first post in this thread and follow my instructions to norton on how to set your GPU's for beta work units. You have 2.5 million points so you should have a valid passkey so make sure to use it.

    Any tips for someone running a client with my specs? Also, what PPD do you guys think i should be getting?

    Edit: And another question: can I still use the same passkey i got a year ago? the one with username chimppowerup

    Do not use that passkey as it will only work for that specific username, request your own using your current username. Use this link to request one:

    This year you don't have to switch anything. Use your own pass key.

    Thanks all, Decided I throw my PC and laptop in for the team! Only downtime will be in the evenings from like 6 to 10, since my PC is located in our living room, and the gf wont be able to hear the TV over my fan noise rofl.

    Do you guys think I should use that beta client for my laptop GPU aswell?

    Edit: currenty getting about 6k PPD from my 8120 at 4,7GHz, isn't that a bit low? or do bulldozers just suck at this? =D

    No betas on a laptop. I hope you raised that laptop, if you are folding on it. It will need air.

    Yeah dont worry, i've been overclocking my laptops for about 6 years now, always got some monitoring program open, and I always make sure no dust is clogging the heatsinks! Currently the CPU is maxxing out at 85C, while still running on the max turbo state, and the GPU is maxxing out at 66C(because of low utilization mainly, so kinda wondering if i can do anything about that, otherwise its maxxing out at about 85-90 aswell when overclocked).

    And thanks!

    ive just started folding. im getting an 8350 soon and will put that up for work. i will only fold when im asleep or through the day.

    7950 @ 1100/1650
    fx @ 4.4

    equals 9.5k a day, i suppose a every little helps

    oh when i get the fx8350 i can also put the 4100 with a gts450 and get that folding

    I suppose you should also use the beta client for your GPU, like explained above when I asked about it^^

    You can request one here. Will be sent instantly to your email, I got it within 5 seconds:)

    Edit:
    Air is not the problem; the heatsink and fan of this laptop is! Its not really producing enough heat for any change in room temperature. My PC is though, but that one is limited by the fact that i dont want to push more voltage trough my chips. Might give this laptop a thorough cleaning, and redoing of paste and such, since warranty has just ran out.
    Awesome to see such a hardcore set-up btw! do you have a fan in the window?
