    I'd love wc, but a good system would get me 2 8800gs instead, and money towards a 2nd rig to run them...my gtx does good enough for regular gaming, I just want to fold! Plus, I really should clean out my 1200 filters....

    I hear ya'

    My suggestion was sort of in jest. WC ain't for everyone. I just use it on my main rig for quietness since it is in the family room. Also, it let's me OC like mad which is a hobby for me. My other 3 rigs CPU's are all on regular air cooling (OCZ Vendetta ~$25 which is a rebadged Xigmatech S983). Pretty quiet when you enable the ASUS QFan and keeps the 45nm chips pretty cool.

    On my video cards in those rigs I run Zalman VF900 aftermarket heatsinks. They are cheap and the fan is very quiet. I have tried them on various Nvidia cards (7900GT, 8800GT 512MB, 8800GT 1GB, 9600GT) and it seems to drop the temps by about 20C+ vs. stock. I don't think the VF900 would handle a GTX280 however and aftermarket solutions for those have been slow in arriving. I heard Thermalright has one that just came out that may be an option.

    That, coupled with good case cooling, should be able to get your card under control.

    So how is everyone doin out there? I am getting hammered by these 511pt WU's and it's taking it's toll on me. With the old WU's I would be @ 86K+ ppd. Now i'm struggling to clear 60K. It's a bit discouraging, but we must push on. Remember that every team is dealing with this and we need to renew our commitment to fold harder than ever. Please put the word out to all GPU owners that you know. We need to increase our base number of folders as much as possible. I am open to any ideas on how we can recruit new members. Let's all get active in recruiting fresh folders to replace the members that drop off. We all know that folding isn't for everyone, but for every 2-3 new members we might find a person similar to ourselves that thrives on folding. Keep up the great work and tell me what you guy's are thinking.

    I have one small trouble with my folding rigs.
    The P4 one started with projects of 600-800 points and had about 5-600 ppd
    Now its geting only about 150-250 points per project and has a under 100 ppd.
    Also it has HT suport, and i have enabled dual cpu suport, but only folds at 50 % of the cpu.
    I'm using the line command client.

    Any advice is highly appreciated.

    Later edit: found this on a wikipage:
    "Note: Windows task manager will show the CPU usage whilst running 1 instance of Folding@home on a HT enabled CPU to be only 50%. This is wrong. The single instance of Folding@home is working at full capacity on the portions of the CPU that it utilizes. "

    But i still don't get why i receive only low points projects.

    Heheh, funny, I finally clean all my filters out to see if my 280 will stay under 80c now, and I'm getting all 50xx jobs all the sudden.. need 57xx big jobs to test. Ah well, at least my 8800gs can fold again for awhile.... nice to get 12k ppd on one box.
    Edit: keeping at 70c so far, I think big jobs will do 75c, and this is with clocks at 700/1458/1150 (real), and yes my filters were basically plugged. Live and learn.

    If you close the client, yes, it will pick up right where it left off. I do it all the time and haven't lost a job yet.
