    it hard to recruit new member when some team give prize every month. i know 2 guys who want to joined tpu but finally go to evga (for the prize) i know some of us don't do it for
    money/hardware but a lot of people like the candy. oh well....

    we are 47 000 member here on tpu i can't believe only 53 guys folding (maybe we need agressive publicity here on tpu)we have to be creative,we can't compete with team like evga (for the prize i mean).

    as for me i don't think i can't built another rigs before september/october

    Its kind of crazy, but sorted by our 24 hour average we're around 32nd place in the top 100. Which again is pretty nuts seeming we've got some members down due to heat or other reasons, so we could be a fair chunk higher. But when you sort by users active we're 96th.

    PS3 and hot weather does not mix, so my PS3 has not been folding for a while. A 9 Series Nvidia is taking its place. My E5200 will be Folding and Crunching 24/7- barring some unforeseen problem.

    I'm down for a bit today. I took the day off work so I could get some work on the house done, and I'm still working out the kinks with my new router.

    I got upto 9th place on the top producers list! Do you realize I did this on on dying mobo? I need to order a new mobo, but have to wait one more month till I have the funds. I have to reinstall windows again every 1 to 3 days, as this mobo wigs out and takes out windows installs over and over. I'm the poorest person here, and I do top 10! Yayyyyyy! Ooops, this isn't trash talk...? heheh

    Looking for donations to rebuild my main system. I can send upto $200 can for shipping ect. I have a paypal account, don't know how to use it but I'll learn. I'd like a pq5 pro mobo and e8400-500 cpu, or an am3 capable mobo that can still support a windsor 5600+. I'm getting ripped off up here in small town Canada, help?

    My second rig is having issue. For some reason Windows 7 just isn't running up to snuff. It's almost like its doing everything on just 1 core. Loading up and opening things is astoundingly slow. The processor wasn't overclocked at all, under 40 degrees the whole time. Just something isn't right.

    Tonight it gets pulled apart and I fix that too. I've fixed too many things in the past two days.

    My new 9600GSO (from Mike) is now running it's inaugural F@H WU (5771) @ stock clocks. :D

    I am monitoring it to make sure my PSU and other components are up to par. If someone doesn't mind looking at my specs (WCG0) and offering their opinion on if the Rosewill PSU (14a 12v1 16a 12v2) should have any problem running this comp 100%. Thanks!

    PSU looks good. I run 4x 9600GSO on a 500W PSU. You just have to balance the load across the rails evenly.

    No idea how the rails are split on this PSU at all. I searched google to see if I could find anything (Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-DB) on how the rails are setup but no luck. I am guessing one rail to the 24pin and the other rail to the PCIe 16 and accessories. Anyway I can find out for sure?

    There should be a label on the side of the power supply itself. If it's a non-modular power supply, it probably has a single 12 V rail, in which case the power supply itself tries to balance things.

    Well this is the label:

    [​IMG]

    This is where I got the 2 rail amperage figures. It doesn't say what rail corresponds to which cables though (unless I am missing something obvious). My guess was 12v1 @14a is the 24pin + 4 pin MB/CPU power and the 12v2 @ 16amp was the PCIe cable and all molex+SATA.

    Correct. The most important thing is if you use your molex to power PCI adapters, connect the adapter to two separate molex rails. You could run another 9600GSO with that PSU easily(if you have another PCI-e slot). In the future, stick with Antec, Corsair, or Coolermaster PSU's for stability and energy efficiency.
