    damm are they using the excuse it takes to much power, LOL.

    I had that issue, had to keep it off for a month and the power usage didn't go down by much, because i left the TV going instead lol.

    no but really that sucks.

    Balancing power is difficult! In order to conserve power while crunching and folding I do not run AC or leave any TVs running. Its really hot too, but if the comp can take it I guess I can too.

    i live in the basement, so temp isn't an issue.

    But even when im folding, at night i turn the gfx up, i'll usually bump the clock speeds to try and crunch extra at night, the problem is i want to tighten my ram timings, but im running on 1GB of ram for now. SO im afraid i might be loosing the stick soon, so im taking her easy.

    Plus solar energy helps as well. Remember GO GREEN!

    Will have to turn down my folding, multiple crashes and blue screens in one day tells me this mobo is about done. I'll pick it back up when I replace the mobo ect. My server is still folding, so I'll still keep adding points!

    Hey, you can afford to take a rest there. You snatched 10th place the other day, which is pretty damn good. I seem to recall you were hitting limitations due to heat and costs, but you blasted into the top ten. At any rate, hope you get things sorted straight.

    I will be helping him out with some hardware;). Hopefully we can have him back in the Top 10 in a short period of time.

    P.S. Pete, we should nickname you the "Hardware Slayer"

    My old P4 finally died. I'm waiting to hear from EVGA about a trade-up to a 250. (I bought a new 6800 for my P4.) It's going to cost me $40 and I'll be doubling my production. Should raise me to 5000-6000 per day. :toast:

    Do you need a replacement CPU? I have a few sitting around.

    OK. I'm finally going to commit to consistent folding. It's well overdue after so many folders joined the WCG team. By the end of the week, I'll have 3 gtx260's going full force.

    Thanks Paulie!!!!

    :toast::rockout::pimp::respect:;)

    I also want to remind everyone to please consider crunching you CPU's for the WCG team. CPU's are more efficient at Crunching than Folding. We will also have crunchers adding their GPU's to Folding @ Home in the next few weeks. As you can see, this greatly benefits both teams. You may even have a shot at El Fiendo's coveted Pie and MPA's

    It was the mobo, not the CPU that failed. But thanks anyway!

    WCG is not all "crunching". WCG runs the "Human Proteome Folding" program as well.

    I can't speak for Buck or MX but Mike gave me a great deal on my 9600GSO, Rosewill PSU, and G.Skill RAM. The vast majority of my WCG0 Rig was from him. He is definitely 'paying it forward' :rockout:

    My $ situation is looking to get better so I should be able to upgrade both my Q6600 and 9600GSO. When I do I will do my best to pass along the deals I got to a Cruncher/Folder who is struggling financially.

    I'm about to the bottom of the barrel:D

    I have a couple of video cards and a MB that I am waiting for a good home and several real good cases[ shipping is too expensive, would have to be local pickup/meet].

    I have several KVMs and switches, a bunch of small PSUs and many small hard drives.

    If anyone needs something PM me and we'll work it out if I have what you need.

    How do intel cpus crunch oced? I guess heat is a bit of an issue? Sorry, I'm researching the heck out of this new intel system I'll be running. I'm hoping for higher ppd out of my 280 as well... must make points!

    like anything it will run faster, ive found that a higher fsb will help crunch faster, and im doing this in the name of tpu, and that i don't think i'll ever get past you.

    Oh and tighten your timings as well.
