    Numbers look good Josh. 2+ days is a long way to go for stability, but we hope for the best.

    Got my reconditioned PC Power & Cooling 750 Quad Silencer last week. It's gonna be the best $45.00 shipped that I have ever spent.

    That thing is fancy! :D If im stable at 4.0 would it be a smart choice to bring it to 4.2 if temps allow for it? I want to see the PPD on my 920 30k+ and 29770 isn't cutting it :p

    EDIT: Would it help going into task manager and setting the priority to real time on a3? Would this hurt the PPD on my gpu's if i do this?

    Hmm if only i could sell some stuff quick to get $50 bucks. I could sell my OCZ for probably 40 bucks but i really don't feel like leaving the rig not running any longer :( It's so great to have it up and comping on work units again i miss the humm of my fans :laugh:

    Let us know how that works out. I've been contemplating picking up a backup PSU should my Antec ever need to be sent off.

    I grabbed 2 of them Buck using one now and the other one is sitting on the shelf for a spare..
    They are great for that price plus they came from Houston at least the 2 that I bought did and I had them in my hands in just 2 days after ordering them.
    You can't beat a 750watt PSU for that price.

    Raising it just 200mhz isn't going to be helping you out any as far as folding.
    It's your chip go ahead an try some different settings and see if it makes a difference.

    Ehh i think ill leave it at 4.0. I just broke 30k PPD with it as well :p I changed the priority to high and that bumped it up to 30,084 at a TPF of 34:42. It didn't hurt the PPD at all on my gpu clients either. :D

    Yeah i should be able to do that. It would probably be a week or two though. Hopefully you don't need to sell it anytime soon. In fact i have cod mw2 for 360 sitting here that i forgot to sell a while ago that i could probably get $35 bucks out of on ebay :D

    I also have 2 delta 120x38mm fan's i could probably get 10-15 out of each. So that right there could be the cash im looking for. Or would you happen to be interested in a trade if you have a 360? :)

    @Josh: I also have a 470 for you, should you decide you want one.

    480's are great folding cards at least my 2 are and I have 2 more on the way, 1 from Fit's and one I bought as an open boxed item from the egg.
    If you want to buy one ask Fit's I think he has 2 left and I'm sure he would make you a deal on them.

    The problem with 480s are, they run so hot, they're only any good if you watercool them (all my 470s have OC'ed to stock 480 levels), and watercooling would mean another 100 bucks.

    My watercooling kit gets here tomorrow, and the i7 920 / mobo combo should be here by end of this week.

    I'm fairly certain I'll run this watercooling kit on the i7, and get another one for my main rig. My processor's been running hot lately (3.6Ghz, stock voltage, 55 degrees while folding). Depends on how the XSPC Rasa performs.

    All of mine are watercooled except 2 of them for now and those will be watercooled in the next couple of weeks. Heck the 480's average 16K PPD. That's pretty darn good for me. Plus they game just as good. They only run hot if you try to clock them to high and have them in a enclosed case.

    It should perform great from what i've seen. Ill post some stuff up for sale and if i get tex's psu, i can then sell my ocz psu and two 8800gts's for probably 160 so id need to come up with a little more for a 470 but it would be well worth it :D

    I'm thinking for my main rig, I might go for the 360mm radiator version of the rasa, so I can eventually add my 470 to the loop too.

    @Josh: Nice to see your sig finally showing some folding activity.

    Yeah it is! Just started dropping some gpu work units finally, and the big ones coming in about 2 and a half days if all goes well! :D

    Oh and i just remembered i have my logitech z313's laying here in a full retail package. Think i could get 30 plus 10 to ship for them?

    Here's newegg's pricing.
