    ***UPDATE***

    This is a roller coaster. Today we are up to sixth place and with one more day left I'm already biting my nails!

    I even upped the clock on my Thuban just a bit so that it's surely stable and just a little higher than stock.

    I wonder how much more we would have moved up if the challenge was longer.

    For the next challenge we could prepare a bit each of us. It is about results returned so try to avoid the big projects and go for the smaller. Help Conquer Cancer is my choice of weapon.

    What about FA@H and HFMD2? I'm going to add those plus HCC to see how the wu's compare. I'll report back - unless someone knows offhand already :)

    Yea, I was wondering the same thing! didn't know if running the smaller projects would net us more points in the long run or not. Of course this is a month long deal.

    They base challenge rankings on results returned, not points? That seems odd. :confused:

    All the HFCC jobs look like they run 10hrs on my Q9450, so I'm dropping that project.

    Really? They only take a couple hours on my C2D E8500 @ 3.8 GHz...
  18. twilyth Guest

    Yeah, the 9450 is a little piggy at stock clocks.

    Probably Help Conquer Cancer. That seems to complete the fastest, at least for me. :)

    I think M had it right from the start

    These seem to be the shortest wu's.

    Help conquer cancer seems to have pretty small wu's. All of mine are usually around 2 hours.
