    my elect bill runs around $100 a month in the winter and about $200 a month in the summer
    Sometimes a little more in the summer depends on how friggin hot it gets here in Texas

    that isnt too bad, i bet you have ac and all running aswell?

    i only have 1 rig atm and i try not to use so much on the other things , and i still pay around 80$ for that per month, but i dont have AC, adding another rig would be around 50$ more if i put 2 gfx in it for folding

    so you understand if i can save 100W per card i would do that and still get some pretty good numbers :p

    and to top that off the HW is 25% more expensive here :rockout: :shadedshu

    what psu would you guys recommend for more than 2 higher end cards and a i7?

    budget is around 250-300$ been looking at the antec quattro 1200W , should handle loads superb, according to jguru

    Try OC'ing it if you haven't. You'd probably touch 10k. Push the core clock (or shader clock ince in the 2xx series they aren't linked) as much as possible.

    So, I have a friend who, I found out today, folds. He only started a few weeks ago, and doesn't fold for any team. I'm totally gonna try to get him to join us here and fold with us.
    He has a PII 1090T and a 460 OC'ed.

    With those numbers he is already close to max. for F@H 24/7 with a GTX 285.

    Hope to see your friend folding for TPU soon:toast:

    I will put together a guide for using FAH GPU Tracker later, even though there is a good guide on the authors site, it will be good to have one on our forum as well.

    Exactly what I would suggest you use for that setup. maybe a little bit of an over kill, not much.

    Yep, this 285 can touch 10k, and with a 783 pointer!
    [​IMG]
    Edit: amazing result considering I dumped a cup of water into my top fan this morning. Pulled the whole thing apart, and put a fan on parts for most of the day to dry. While waiting, I took apart my zalman cooler, washed it, and dried it. Then cleaned all my intake fan screens. Replaced a suspect sata cable. Somewhere in there I also swapped my mb bios chips around, but who knows what that did... Then discovered my trackir didn't like being plugged into the same hub as one I connected an external hub to. Weird, but would not post until I changed it. Wheww! After all that, it's looks pretty good!
    Here, broke 10k:

    Good man get him putting those points towards us! Make sure he's got that x6 either doing -smp or bigadav also! :D

    Sorry i've been missin from the forums a few days. I've been real sick. Woke up at like 3 a.m. on christmas and just started throwin up everywhere. Spent all day christmas sleeping and throwin up about every 30 mins. Didn't even feel like using my gifts or even setting anything up.

    Well i got a wall mount for my LCD a new desk, some fancy rope lights black ops, sc2, a little r/c helicopter and some clothes. It was actually a great christmas for gifts as the only thing i asked for was black ops and sc2 and the rest i got surprised with and was very happy with them! I will post a pic up later of the room all setup. I finally felt better to getting around to getting on the forums now :)

    Oh and my x58 mobo should be here tomorrow along with my egg gift card. I found this ram on the egg with a promo code for $20 bucks off so it's 65 bucks for some decent brand ram at decent speeds. Cl ratings aren't the best but hey for $65 bucks i'll live with it for a bit.

    Hope everyone had a great christmas!

    Tell him that I will replace any points he folded in the last few weeks, if he joins us @ TPU.

    Yep, ram prices are crazy low again. I might just double-up on all the rigs I surf/game on.

    Haha you guys are funny. I think im gonna order that ram tomorrow if my newegg gift card comes. My aunt sent it on the 24th and newegg says it takes 2-3 days to deliver their e-certificates. It's a joke but whatever i guess. The promo code is good till 1/1 so i'll be able to get it before then.

    ok, so im sure this has been asked before, but ive seen people/guides say to add the -verbosity 9 tag after -smp for CPU folding, what exactly does it do and how does it improve folding? thanks
