    Anyone still spooling down? I stopped new tasks yesterday morning on the 4670k, but there's still work left over, probably enough for all day and night. Oops :oops:, was supposed to have this pc back today. Ah well, just be another day of increased activity for me :D

    yeah, I set a 0.5 buffer but I think it'll take about a day, mainly thanks to the leftover MCM 7.28 WUs (>5 hours)

    That's bloody terrific!



    Well the 4670k just finished its last WU about 30 minutes ago, so it'll be off back to its rightful owner later toight. It was a fun run. :)

    The i3 is back to part time crunching, and the 4770k is trying out some MCM WU's. I feel so inadequate again :oops:

    ;)

    My dad is already complaining about the power bill, lol. I'm gonna have my athlon running all the time probly, doesnt draw too much power, and my main rig part time.

    Maybe by the next challenge I can get my fx4300 back...trying to share a lan box was a terrible idea lol

    I've seen some of the more dedicated cryptocurrency miners install 220vac in their homes since it gives better efficiency on the PSUs. Seems like it'd be tempting to do for the more dedicated crunchers and folders.

    ? I think all homes in the US already have 220 supplied. Usually most homes are at least 220 100 amp systems.

    That's true, but usually 220 is just run to the clothes dryer and oven and the rest of the house is 110v. I'd have to run another leg down to my computers and install 220 outlets and everything that's involved with that. I think for me it's more hassle than it's worth, but if I had a whole farm going I could see that being a good option

    I am so glad I live in Yurip in this regard.
    On the other hand, power price -wise, I am so not glad I don't live in 'Murica.

    Depends, I know that I pay about $0.27 per KWh, Manofthem about $0.37 per KWh, Vinska is somewhere in between that IIRC.

    Here we don't have a flat rate, once you go past a certain amount the rate increases for the whole sum, not just the kw above the rate :(
