    Sorry--what's your question? :eek:

    If your crunching and your WCG account is a member of TPU's team then you're good to go :toast:

    Again, sorry I'm late, but we're at nearly six hundred million points :toast:

    About ten days to go and it's clear that the race for a billion points is going to be tight.

    We would need to average about 37 million WCG ppd for the remainder of the Challenge to reach 1 billion (about 10% more than current output) - at our current pace we should be just over 950 million by the end of the Challenge....which an awesome feat!!! :pimp:-:rockout:

    Yeah, I'm not sure we're going to be able to make it. Oh well, we've tried valiantly, and our contribution is surely still remarkable ;)

    Agreed! :toast:

    The GTX 670 I just installed should increase my output by 10% so there's that :)

    Excellent! My output is going to be down anywhere from about 3% to about 60% next week depending on what I decide to shut down over Spring Break--I'm thinking of just shutting down the dual cores, the 4P, and leaving my GPU systems going, but I haven't decided. I need to check with my RA to see what will be allowed.

    I scored an X4 630 for $50 but I don't think it'll make it here before the challenge ends :(

    I actually requested some time off from work for the first time in over two years. I have vacation days but I took them all year after year as sick days. But since I've been must better health wise for about 6 months now I finally decided to at least for now take Thursday/Friday and the weekend off. I will find some time in there to maximize output in my rigs as much as possible. Right now my AMD rig needs better cooling, I have a cooler I can put on just need the time. That'll squeeze some more out of it as it's only going at 70% now. The 7770 is only running one WU now, I'll try to run multiple WU's to see what it can do. What do you guys think?

    I run four Wu's with my HD 7770's. Start there and then increase to 5 or more and watch for errors.

    Norton is a big fan of the Xigmatek Gaia--I have one on my 2700k and it's running at ~60C @ 4.4GHz. Another one on the 3930k and it's doing ~80C @ 4.2GHz. The Hyper212+ is another good choice :toast:

    I'm running five WUs on the two 7770s from mjkmike and pulling not quite 40k from each, and 4 WUs on each of my HD7770s and pulling ~33-35k each :toast:

    He sent me the CPU with a cooler as well, but to test and make sure all was fine I ran it with stock cooler. But if stable, I'm going to put the cooler he sent me on. :)

    Fair warning on that cooler (Spire TME III) it's a little bit aggravating to install and the fan mounting system is terrible (consider zip ties)... However, if it make solid contact it is supposed to be one of the best performing AMD air coolers available ;)
    *Note- use very little TIM on the outer heatpipes- they only partially contact the cpu

    Personally, I'm a fan of the Xig Gaia and the Xig DK Night Hawk (both are very good)

    I don't think we're going to hit a billion points, but we're nearly two thirds of the way there :toast:

    I feel a bit confused (it's early in the morning here). I see a near 800 million and not "nearly 800 billion", but perchance I am not sufficiently awake.
