Welcome to the Millionaires Club El Fiendo ('bout time damn it)
I'm not currently water cooling any of the 260 cards. I do have about half of the farm quad CPUs on a mass water cooler though. 7 out of the 12 quads that make up the farm are on the mass cooler. The mass cooler uses a van radiator and 4 Laing D5 vario pumps. All fuzion blocks.
This doesn't count the 4 other quad machines scattered about that I actually use for stuff. All machines crunch 24/7, and the 8 machines I have with compatible vid cards fold 24/7. Most of the machines have more than one x16 slot. I have not counted up the potential GPU capability, I don't think I want to know right now....
It must be realized here that I do my main crunching for my home WCG team at XS. My main WCG account is "123bob" on the WCG page. For crunching WCG, I've made it to 33rd place in the world, behind Rammie and a couple of other XS'ers. I left a quad here on the TPU WCG team to help out and also to meet a few new folks. I came here when the XS site busted and found your crunching team. A few of us helped to meet the criteria to get TPU WCGers their own forum subsection. I'm crunching here as "123bob_TPU", a different account from my main.
My folding came at the idea to share potential between folders and crunchers. I put these cards on for the "exchange" program. WCG folks fold GPUs for the folding team, folders crunch CPUs for WCG. A great idea, which I support. I never folded before, so this was something new to learn. I'm still getting the hang of it....
So, if any of you guys would like to put your CPUs to their true potential, cruise on over to the WCG section and get setup. I know a lot of you already do this. Kudos. To those who don't, think about it. WCG and folding do peacefully co-exist on the same machine. It may be a bit hard on PSUs, but what the heck, we don't want them loafing around...
Quick question, are there any sites that record stats similar to bionicsynergy and stats free-dc for WCG? The stat page on F@H kinda sucks. Looking forward to join as soon as my computer is put back together.
What is the minimum card to run F@H?
Geforce 8 series or X1600 I think, I have a feeling that XS has a stats page somewhere for it as well (Not sure on that though).
Nvidia 8600 or better(8400's crash constantly) or ATI HD 2900 or better.
Right, I'll be quoting you on that in future then.
Try here for stats -

Bob is totally right!
I've been crunching over 2 weeks now (36K points so far ) and my GPU folding clients are happy with the new friend BOINC
Thx for this one. It looks a whole lot more familiar on the format for me....
Yeah that one looks similar to the dc-stats that they do for WCG
WOW, I seen your setup! Very nice! I'd hate to think how much gtx260 blocks go for, plus x your cards!
Yea, I started out folding a few weeks earlier. (I use to crunch years ago with the "BIONC client" on several "A slot" machines.) Once, I found out TPU had a crunching team as well.. Courtesy of Buck! Thanks again Buck! I knew, I had more CPU power to offer than GPU power, and felt it a great idea for us to join our forces! Now we have "crunching&folding@home"!!
Yeah..I think we could have a "Who has got Folding Pie" thread
I can't take much of the credit. It's Paulieg that came up with the phenomenal idea. Props to Paulieg and all crunchers that became folders and vice versa!!!!
you guys might want to check out this thread...
Yep, been watchin it.
that would be great if that happens
Yeah morpha..props to you for getting the ball rolling
Would be nice to have Folding@home/WCG stats all in the one sig.
The scope of this is beyond my capability, but hopefully if things go well with your endeavour then the rest of us might benefit from it as well
Does anyone else have trouble with the 5905 jobs? I don't think I've ever completed one without a gromacs guarded run error. Nothing wrong with my card or machine, card is not oced, no other 3d stuff running at the same time.. I don't get it. Shouldn't be a problem for my 9800gtx. Any ideas? I hate seeing 5hrs of folding go down the drain over and over!
People keep turning off the clients, even though I have renamed them "LEAVE THIS RUNNING" and threatened them. Time to start shutting off internets for them........
My machine is down while I work with another machine.
Stand by for sudden increase in my ppd starting Friday. A little friend is being returned to me! Brand new and probably a 285. Here Ups here boy....
Congrats! It's been a long time coming.
Hoho... the marvelous 353pt are making us happy today
I wanna be very optimistic and say we are breaking the 600K barrier today
563K last 24H
We gotta throw a BIG PARTY for the arrival
Now I just need a 3rd box to run my now orphaned 8800gs.. sniff...
Forget the box!!!!
GO mmaakk's style: NAKED
I'd love too! Just need the board and cpu... got ram! Oh well..... being in Canada sucks for cheap parts but what can you do?
