    Nah, my phatty died 2 years ago. I resurrected it just long enough to switch all the data over to a slim.

    As far as smp, I thought I read last year that non-hyperthreaded cpus were worthless on smp. Or was that only for smp bigadv (or w/e the extra words were after smp)?

    My i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz can put out up to 20k PPD depending on the wu with smp and passkey entered.

    I'm in, I think. I killed my clients this morning, used my old CC shortcuts and left the country. It's only 75 K PPD so I can't see the difference in CC points. Best I can do but if points are there it does make a small difference in the end. Fold hard all :)

    Problem solved. I threw together another rig to game on during the CC. Nothing special(Phenom II x4 965, 880G matx mobo and a cheap PNY GTX460 from Craigslist), but it does the job. Nice part is it produces 20K PPD during the week.

    GTX580 is online and Folding, going to watch the finished WU count and make sure the Username isn't typo'd. Letting WCG finish some WUs before switching the i7 over.

    Got my netbook all setup to use while the PC is bogged down by DC- picked up a new ext battery from Amazon and Norton donated some new RAM for it :D

    Can't find the passkey from last year- PM please? :toast:

    2 questions, can I switch all my stuff over to chimpowerup right now without breaking the "start time rules", or will I need to wait 'til after the start time to switch stuff over.

    2. Can someone PM me the passkey (I'll have 3 cores on i5-750 running so hopefully that'll count. From earlier discussion it sounds like it will.)

    edit:

    Help plz. How do I get to the tracker settings as stated in the OP. All I have is the F@H control panel w/ configure and preferences options. Looks like the guide here but not the ones in OP for setting number of cores I want to use for folding/anything else.

    edit 2: sorry for being a folding noob, just want to make sure I get this right to help out max potential. Ran the tutorial for Radeon 58xx. It's showing my gpu core is 0x16 so I'm assuming that I have the correct WUs loading on that?

    Lastly I hope. I edited my CPU core to use 3 threads (changed the default value from -1 to 3) did I do that right?

    Passkey sent. With Tracker V2 you should be able to use all 8 threads of yor cpu and still run both of the GTX 260's.:) What cooling do you have on yor cpu?
