    :) Nice setup, I used to have a 480 with a D5 on my i7. I had the Apogee GTZ Waterblock though.

    Sorry :(

    Me too, I have two 5770's that would gladly fold if they actually did good. I couldn't even get WU's last time I tried to fold with one.

    I use my buddies A/C compressor, it's powerful enough to dust out and clean video cards without disassembling. :D But I wait till temps start to hurt a lot, if not I'd have to do it every week :(

    I'm not sure, maybe I'm throwing a number out of my ass, but 500psi? Ugh, i'll check when I see him at work tomorrow.

    anything more that 130psi will blow things apart.

    40psi is resonable for cleaning pc parts but 30psi would be better.

    anyone know when the next update is?

    Yeah then I obviously didn't remember the number right. I'll get the specs of it tomorrow if I remember. I know it works great on PC components :)

    Not sure on the last update, but it was HUGE! :rockout:

    78 % of a 2684 (62.000 points) down the drain. I Ctrl +C it to install wireless and when I restarted it it didn't pick up my passkey and hence it is only worth 8300 points, it said that my shut down was improper.I tried to restart it a couple of times but still no pass key. Not happy, back to crunching, sorry folders.

    That sucks dude:ohwell: Hey next time just suspend it and then you can do whatever you want. Do you have the back up scripts enabled? I tried getting my other 2 i7's to fold -bigadv via Windows SMP but somehow only one works. Will have to go back to VM:shadedshu

    How do I do that? Would that have worked during a restart of the PC? Just in case I want to try something stupid again.

    It backs up and restarted where I shut it down, just without the passkey.

    I tried to get my i7 920 air cooled rig to fold -bigadv via Windows SMP but soon realized that it wasn't going to be fast enough. According to this Mini-Guide a 920 has to run at least 3.8GHz @ -smp 8 but the heat here is killing me. I put it back on A3.

    Regular one I don't know but the ProlimaTech Super Mega Heatsink CPU Cooler just might be what the doctor ordered! I'm waiting for the reviews.

    It seems like there are no safe way to shut it down but thanks for trying to help Bogmali. I gone back to -advmethods and dropped the -bigadv. The difference is that the first only takes 5 hours and that long I can wait to shut it down. The points difference to a 6012 is less then 2000 PPD but at least the potential lose is maximum 3500 points, not 62000.
