    wish my 8800GT could do those clocks. I can only do 750c/1917s/2000m

    Interesting, I'm starting to think that job servers are assigned by either internal or external ip. I dropped core 1.15 into my server install, and it's been running 3 days nonstop, nothing but 480 pointers. Have not needed to reinject the core once! My main rig keeps getting 384 pointers for my gtx280, and it's driving me crazy, don't like the heat ect. Both rigs are on seperate external ips. I may experiment and see if I change first the internal ip, and then maybe the external ip, if I can get a different server! Has to be a reason each rig keeps getting the same jobs over and over.

    6 days of non-stop 384 pt's on my 2 nivida rigs.:banghead: Same crap with my ATI only 511pt(2500ppd) or 384 pt(3000ppd) :banghead:

    Where all the other jobs? :confused:

    Must be a backlog that's all. And anyway don't think of the poor jobs, just think about why your doing it in the first place

    Not complaining about doing it, but if my main rig would get 50xx jobs, then my 8800gs could be folding too, otherwise it's wasted money! Also, I'm going to have to back my 280 clocks down even more, I've seen many cards burned out by folding, and I can't afford to replace this card....

    So who else out there considers themselves at least slightly addicted to folding? I check the stats page over at extreme overclocking a few times a day and I've been on the fence for the last hour over whether to buy an 8800gts 512mb for only $120 and see what I can get for my weaker 8800GT on ebay.... I'm very surprised for what they still go for on there. Even worse I've thought about buying the one and keeping all 3 and just adding another rig.

    Slightly here yes, it just bugs me I can't afford more hardware! First thing I do when I wake up is check stats, then make coffee!
    Heheh, check my noisy sig...

    Ah, you sound like me about 6 months ago. I started with a wee 3870 folding in my HTPC, now I have 18 GPU's spread over 5 rigs:laugh:. Yes, It can be very addictive. You must sit down and consider how dedicated you are to the cause. Then plan your hardware strategy. Why not get a 4xPCI-E Mobo and fold them all on the same rig(similar cards of course)? This is the most energy efficient way to go in the long run, but requires new hardware purchases. Do not buy a new mobo without considering the future of your addiction. Newegg has the MSI K9A2 Platinum for $102.00-$105.00 open box and it's a great board. How addicted are you right now?

    Trust me, I've been looking pretty hard at the new i7 920 with a triple pci-e mb setup. After pricing around it could be had for ~ $720, that's with a good oc'ing mb. So far it looks like the 920 is a monster with the SMP client. My problem is computers are more like a MacGyver hobby to me. I shop areound all the time buy usually don't spend much at all. When I do I buy quality and torture the crap out of it. I have more than a few ghetto mods on my system. I'm itching to pull the trigger on a new setup but the one I have right now just keeps producing too well. As far as my addiction, so far it's got me to run my pc 24/7 for folding and my laptop with a T5750 is also running 24/7 with the SMP client. The laptop sits on top of a 26" floor fan that can swivel 90 degrees, so it points straight up and acts like one bigass laptop cooler (that thing runs cooler than idle on top of that fan when folding).

    how do you increase the % of CPU F@H can use? I'd probly run it 50% at night or something maybe more.

    You change it in the configuration setup, when you get to change advanced options, select yes, and then you get the option to change %.

    Actually it is possible to do this, but not inside of the PS3 OS, you would have to install ubuntu and install F@H inside of linux. This would inevitably fold with lower PPD because in ubuntu the OS is only able to access 2 cores, if linux was able to tap into the RSX GPU and it had a reliable GPU folding client it would be worth doing...

    I can fold and play warcraft at the same time apparently, so my quad should be working 24/7 pretty much :]

    You do realise that F@H takes your SPARE CPU and GPU time so it doesn't matter if you're gaming, although you'll get a lower PPD as it's not getting the full power.

    And the HTPC goes back to slave-folding duties....

    I just picked up 2 - XFX 9600GSO's for 79.99 each @ CompUSA. They had a half a pallet of them:eek: I was tempting to just buy an armload and charge it to a credit card. I have two more of these cards folding for months now and they ROCK for 9600's. Well, gotta get installing. Look's like another 8K PPD coming online for TPU tonite:rockout:

    Old school....96 shaders:D. These are the same one's that were on Newegg(sold out now), but no shipping and instant gratification of buying in store.
