    Welcome! :toast:
    Good to have you back :rockout:
    Awesome! What sort of PPD does that GPU do?

    Ah, welcome back Polaris AKA "the original F@H Moderator":rockout:

    On another note, I want to congratulate the team on averaging 1.2 Million PPD

    It averaged 3765 today. I'm going to see if I can get it higher tomorrow. I'm ashamed to admit I'm having trouble overclocking. Can't find a program that will work well. Maybe that's for the best though; Commonsense says you shouldn't overclock a laptop anyway.

    Lol I remember when a PPD like that would have gotten me in the top 10 folders without any trouble. It would be selfish of me to say I miss those days. You guys are the greatest. I never would have thought we would make the top 50 teams. Now I KNOW we are going to make top 25. I'll contribute what little I can. Show the flag so to speak.

    Keep up the hard work and have fun doing it.

    I fired up a GTX 275 about 3 hours ago. It seems happy being the only card in that rig.:)

    Just noticed I have two consecutive days over 20k PPD with only what I have in my signature. both cards are at default clocks so I'd say that's pretty darn good!

    EDIT: My 5870 is in the mix for now as well, that adds about 4k PPD. :toast:

    How do you like the Phenom X6 Chicken patty? I'm thinking about picking one up in a few months for a new build.

    The diffference between a GTS 360M and a GT430 isn't that big is it? Same shader count and about the same shader speed. I'm spending 100-150 days at hotels/guest houses a year and I'm eyeing a i3-370M/GT430M laptop. It will sure beat my T5600 @ crunching.

    My 1 year day with TPU folding is soon up (7th of November) and it seems like my modest start with a 9800GTX+ eventually (with a small last minut addition) made it possible for me to reach 5M in one year. If all goes well I will upload 72k + 92K tonight and then it is a minor step to the big 5 :toast:

    It's a great CPU. Feels really snappy, games great and basically handles anything you throw at it. Really no complains at all. They run cool which is a bonus as well.

    I don't think this is needed over a quad, but really there is no cons about it, all pros if you ask me. :toast:

    That's a difference of only 9838 PPD. One more card should do it, and I have a 460 coming Monday. ;)

    The race is on - I downloaded two 2692's about the same time. The hex is leading with 21:15 TPF trailed by the 4 GHz i7 920 at 30:32. Now it is all down to endurance strength. My money is on the cool running guy (less then 50 C). The slower guy had his Vcore reduced before the run since he hit 70 C.

    Yes, they are having a low production day so far. It should be fun to watch the "time to overtake" shrink in the next 24hrs:D. I'm kicking around the idea of another -bigadv rig(total of 4), but I want to get a feel for the WU's Stanford is gonna send in the next few weeks. It kills me to see an i7-860 @3.9Ghz(230watts consumption) spinning it's wheels on a P6701 and only producing 13K ppd:banghead:.

    I have a -bigadv dumping tomorrow and another on Monday morning.

    Is one of yours just doing standard SMP ATM?

    It's really a shame we're no longer at the point where there seemed to be limitless bigadvs :ohwell:

    A 4th would be cool, but a quad-GTX460 rig would also be sweet :D

    Uh-Oh. My GPU3 clients are waiting for work. I hate when this happens on a weekend. Now where did I put Vijay Pande's home phone number???:banghead:

    I went out to get a costume that wouldn't scare the girls and when I got home all my GPU3 cards were confused as to what work server to use. I even tried the new v6 client.

    At least I got to a 6 figure score before Pande went home!
