    If your using the tracker program just stop the clients and shut machine down then apply the tim or AS5. I use a small business card or old credit card, spread it on light and over the whole top of the cpu. Usually a drop or a piece that looks about the size of a grain of rice will do it. With the new heat pipe coolers you need a little more to fill the gaps in between the heat pipes.

    Cut the center out of an old 120mm fan, if you want a cheap shroud.:)

    Glad to hear you got it done on your own. Hope everything works out for you on it. I bought 2 of them and both of them work, your PSU should work great.

    I know Tex did. They really sold out of all of them?

    EDIT: If any of you missed the PC power and cooling 750w PSU at directron, axiontech has them here :D Better jump on that quick dub!

    Dang bro that sucks :ohwell: Hopefully you regain it very soon!

    Also does anyone know what 465's score for PPD? If i could get some 465's with the black PCB's that unlock to 470's that would be awesome!

    Even if i had to get some with the blue PCB's that don't unlock it saves me about 100 bucks over two 470's and it's cheaper than 2 460's also.

    Newegg has these galaxy's right now for $144.99 and it comes with a free game that you could most likely sell bringing the cards prices down to about $250 for both or maybe cheaper.
    Galaxy 60XGH3HS3CUD GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB 25...


    EDIT: Anybody interested in seeing a 2600k folding?

    yep, hopefully. I checked all rigs, they are all going okay, nothing is locked up or anything.

    For PPD, check this out:

    Thanks buck! It feel's pretty good!

    I guess the quick 4.0 clock was perfectly stable! It's already chomping away on another 6900, and has about 2 days left till complete. Watch for me in the folding pie and milestones thread tonight :p

    Don't worry bro ill keep em coming!

    Cool thanks man! Look's like they score about 2k less PPD, but is 2k really worth 50 dollars?

    Hmmm, don't think so. Considering you can get a card that does about 4k for that money. Really it's up to you dude. :)

    Haha yeah i wouldn't think so either. I could take that 100 bucks i save and grab a gts 450 with it and bring in a extra 6k PPD over 470's. I think my rig would break 100k on days i drop -bigadv's then!

    I like this 6900 better then that 2686 for some reason. Maybe it's just the first 2 digits i have no clue :p

    I have a open box PNY GTX465 unlocked to a 470, 13K to 14K maybe just a little more. It doesn't OC very good, it is a steady card and chugs along with the points pretty darn good.

    Cool man! If i can score some pretty cheap i think id go for it. I mean for 100 bucks less than 470's they really can't be beaten. The best thing i think is for me to wait a little longer though and see what 560's do to all the 465 and 470 prices. Maybe i should just sell 1 card now and my little OCZ PSU that way it's easier come time for me to buy a 465 or 470.

    Thought you said you didn't have any pci express lanes open? :p Card's seem to be the best way to get the same average PPD daily. since their such small work unit's they can get them done much quicker.

    I really hope the good gpu3 work unit's come back soon so we all see PPD increase as a team, and my PPD would increase as well with them :) I was stuck with the 494's on gpu2 for a long time but it seems like we finally got over those and i love the 587's right now :) 450's are alright work unit's the 3xx fly! The 7xx pointers are not bad as well. Seem's like most of the folders are switching over to fermi and they need more gpu2 users!

    Can't VNC into my main rig. Seems like it shut down for some reason. I hope my folding rig is still running.

    Good deal here. MSI 450 for 90bucks. Im sure it can be bargained down a bit;

    Wow those are good, especially if you could get them for 170 shipped or so. Im thinking you need to sell me your 470 x and buy the both of those. That's 7k more PPD than your 470!

    Hmmm...it is a tempting offer. The only thing is, they don't have as much of a resale value as my 470, and also will occupy more PCIe slots leaving me with lesser room to expand. But 7k PPD is tempting.

    Why won't you get them when you can for the price for my 470? Any particular reason?

    OR
    2 fans with shrouds
