    BTW, I will not be in for the hardware prizes, because of shipping and the likelyhood of it not getting crunched on by me. I will be in for anything else and of course for science.

    I tried to Fold on my i5 w/ HD4000. For the Chimp Challenge, and just could get this thing to do it. It basically made both Crunching and Folding come to a near standstill. Thanks for giving it a go!!:D

    Do you think Thursday is too late to get a rig going with time to spool up? I was supposed to be picking up my bro's 4670k Thursday but I may be able to push it to Wednesday.
