    It is except that you cant download torrents or you receive a notice. That part sucks. Opening google in a few milliseconds gets old after a while.

    Use uTorrent and limit upload to 1kb/s and set it to stop torrents once they are done ?

    I noticed that my production went down today and found out that my 260 had completed 12 units! More like +2000. My settings for team number and username were blank. How does that happen? I did have some Internet problems last night I found out since my hex spent 6 hours to download a new unit. It was connected to the server but the download never began. Now I'm leaving for a business trip and fear the worst. Well gotta make some money (planing for a 2600K, don't tell wife ;) )

    Tried closing the side panel on my case but processor temps shot up by 4-5 degrees. Its open again. Running between 5-56 degrees now at 3.8Ghz. Pumping about 6.5k PPD which is more than I've ever seen from it.

    I'm strongly considering going custom water cooling on it but can't figure out how to accomodate the parts in my Antec 1200 (not the best case for WC), or selling my H50 and getting either an Eco Coolit of H70.

    Thoughts, opinions?

    Hehe my lips are sealed i wont tell her :p

    As for my friend with the 980x and gtx 580, we both were at that llan party last night so i don't know if he wants me to come over today and set that up. He's a lazy mofo and gonna sleep all day lol. I could probably use teamviewer though to get him setup at first. He's at stock clocks right now though on his 980x, im woorking on trying to get him to buy a h70 so we can clock that thing to a quick 4.0ghz.

    Here's his only problem though, he goes what do i get out of folding? That's a tough question to answer. Well i was like what do you do with your computer on a daily basis? He's like absouletely nothing i'll browse the net and game occasionaly. So i was like perfect, you have all this amazing hardware doing NOTHING. If you have it why not put it to use and help find cures for the stuff. He's like so we all just fold together or what? I was like nah it's team's and you all compete withiin the teams trying to beat eachothers PPD and then your team competes with all the other team's. I go it's very addicting once you get into it :laugh:

    Here's what really wants to get him folding though. So he bought a 980x and hasn't OC'd it. He got like 54 gflops in 980x and my 920 gets like 49. I showed him that, and his 32m test is like 1 sec faster and that pissed him off haha. He's a competitive type so i said you know what, your 980x would absoulutely destroy my whole PPD and my 920 and you shoulda seen the look on his face! He was talking more and more about it and was like shit why don't we build servers with quad opterons or something stritcly for folding? He's got the money for it now we just need to get him hooked :p

    Sorry if my post doesn't make any sense. I got like 4 hour of sleep last night and well i can't sleep anymore haha

    Sweeettnnesss!! Bigadv parts are here. Now only to put it all together. Unfortunately, being super busy this weekend, I won't be able to get around to it until Tue or Wed.

    Crappy pic FTW

    Whats interesting is, the package was marked 'Perishable' and the people who collect and hold packages for residents in my building almost out it into the refrigerator, but it wouldn't fit...lol

    Awewsome bro! If you can't get it up till tuesday or wednesday don't expect any points till next weekend or so. Gotta get that thing to 4.0+ with that rasa kit!

    Is that a cpu heat sink of to the side? I've never seen anything like that :laugh:


    On my side of things, i should be dropping my -bigadv tonight or early tomorrow morning. Im having some weird things though with this work unit. So i was trying to OC to 4.2 and it wouldn't make it so i set it all back to 4.0 and i had downloaded the work unit before i tried OC'ing more. I had started my -bigadv again once i was in windows with 4.0 and i gamed for like 5 hours that night so ppd was at like 22k. I noticed the TPF went back down to around 35:?? but now it's been folding for like 18 hours completely idle except for my two gpu2 clients and my TPF is at like 39:?? It's been doing nothing but fold and my TPF goes up 4 mins? It's not throttling or anything and nothing else is running in the backround.

    I figured i'd just wait till i finish this unit and see what happens next.

    Woot i can't wait man!

    Im helping my friend get setup right now on his 980x rig :D:D:D does f@h tracker or whatever it is do -bigadv after he get's the first 10 work units done?

    That would be the easiest way to get him going i think. Also if anyone wants to help him get the first 10 units done and get another -bigadv machine on the team there more than welcome too :D

    Lost power in the middle of the night and all the rigs went down, maybe the ones @ work also. I can't remote into them so I would guess they are down till tomorrow. O well at least the ones at the house are back up and running again. We had a huge storm move through here last night blew over trees and now they are predicating snow. We shall see about snow it's only about low 40's now so it will have to get a heck of alot colder before it snows here. All we have now is a whole lot of rain.

    That would suck if it all froze tonight :( That happen's all the time here.

    EDIT: Wooot just got my friend up and folding! Used teamviewer and got him setup using gpu tracker. That program is amazing! I need to switch over now im thinking.. Hmmm.

    He's already getting 16k ppd out of his gpu3.

    Yeah, I've always used FAH GPU Tracker. It might not allow you to do a lot, buts low maintenance.

    Btw, I still have the s775 motherboard to get rid of. Should fetch me about 50ish. I'll use that to order some fans for my Rasa radiator.

    If only I can figure out the placement of the parts in my Antec 1200, I'll liquid cool that too. The main problem is the radiator. I can place the pump on the floor of the chassis, but dunno where I'll place the rad.

    Interesting side note, I bought a Galaxy GeForce 210 for 40 dollars on Black Friday and it came with a 45 dollar rebate so I actually made 40 something cents after tax and rebate. Anyway it seems this card will do 1k+ PPD not bad for free, it also does physx okay.

    Hey guys, we have a new member who posted in the your PC ATM thread. He has a i7 950 and two gtx 580's. Im working on recruiting him as well :) I sent him a PM with helpful links and a link to this thread. You guys should definitely help get him going as im not a genius with this stuff but i know a little :rolleyes:

    cmanning27 is the member. Let's make him feel welcomed as we could use another 70k ppd from his rig :D

    There should be a badge for most members recruited :laugh:

    EDIT:cmanning27 told me he was going to give folding a go :) So we should be expecting a good 70k ppd from him and a good 80k ppd from my buddy once they both get setup on -bigadv. An extra 150k PPD helps doesn't it? :)

    EDIT#2: Im gonna go with my friend to best buy and get him a h70 and overclock his 980x to 4.0. Anybody have any good guides on overclocking 980x's? I've never worked with a unlocked multi before.

    EDIT#3: Nvm best buy doesn't sell h70's in store :mad: and i doubt a h50 would do any good on a 980x at 4.0 really. So most likely ill have him order a h70 but until then i'd still like to get his chip clocked a little further. This is his current HSF. What would this most likely be able to get his 980x clocked too?

    He needs to OC it. I get more than that on my 470.

    Its really simple. Set your memory divide so your memory runs at the speed you want it.

    After that, bump multi up by one. Stress test. Keep doing until stress test fail. Then bump voltage up. You only need to increase the CPU voltage since increasing multiplier doesn't affect anything else.

    Yeah working on OC'ing it at the moment. We just bumped it up to 850 core and 1700 shader and it's getting 18k ppd :D

    Wow that sounds very easy actually :) I'll help him overclock it alittle bit today. What's the max 980x temperatures we should go for for a 24/7 overclock?

    In my experience over 65-70c your going to run into trouble, just because of the number of problems you could have is multiplied do to 4 extra cores (2 physical, 2 logic).

    Ahh alright. Well with his cooler folding right now he's at around 59-60°C at stock speed's. I could probably squeeze a little more out of it but not much then huh? A 980x at stock speed's will be able to complete -bigadv units right?
