    Alright cool :)

    Sweet :) So if i was folding some smp clients on this i3 laptop i would setup vnc for that? I want to be able to see this on HFM in my main rig. A extra 4k points wouldn't hurt everyday now on the days that i don't drop -bigadv's. My cards get a good 13k daily and with this at 4k i could possibly be getting the top 20 even on non -bigadv days :D

    EDIT: Got the i3 330M folding on a p6060 right now. Good for about 1950 credit with bonus according to HFM. PPD output is about 2.5k so even if i can get a extra 2k points in there a day that im not dropping -bigadvs hopefully i should be around 15k PPD.

    EDIT #2: Guys don't forget about this thread. Don't be scared to post there it's there for a reason :) Id rather post there but it doesn't seem like anybody from the F@H community follows that thread.

    +1 Buck you must be insane to sell it @ that price. Curiosity killed the cat but that price is insane, I hope it works out for you. I'm going to sit back awhile and just see what happens.

    That probably the best thing you could do right now. Im wondering how these chips will stand up to 24/7 at 4.9ghz.

    Also is it normal for my TPF to be about 3 minutes longer with a 2692 than a 6900?

    EDIT: Lost my crazy folders badge :( Oh well i'll have it back just as quick :)

    I'm going to do just that sit back and watch, I have 3 fairly new bigadv rigs and it would be hard to just start selling them and buying Sandy rigs. I might sell the AMD 1090 BE rig in a few months. I will wait till somebody can confirm for sure Sandy is worth switching to.
    I honestly don't know what the normal TPF is for those I just set mine up and let it fold. Bigadv's units do take time and most of them take a couple of days to complete.

    Yeah i have a ETA of about 2 days exactly right now. I just remember that on project 6900's my chip at 4.0 gave me a good 30k ppd and a TPF of around 34:?? and with a 2684 i was getting a TPF of like 47:?? and like 18k ppd.

    It was like my third -bigadv i got so i wasn't sure if something was up with my PC or what. But it just seem's that every work unit is different and can't give the same PPD.

    W00T! I got My rig back up and ready to fold nearly 24/7.

    For those wondering, I was hospitalized for a pretty long time, and folding just wasn't on my radar.

    with that said, does anyone have some reviews on the single slot GTS 430/450's? I have room to put one in an x1 slot that's been modded to allow for a longer one, and it should be perfect to use it as a physx/folding card.

    I want the 430 so I can get all of my cards into fermi.
    PhysXerror, hertz9753, [Ion] and 3 others say thanks.

    Welcome back! If you're looking for Folding reviews for the 430, just scrool back a few pages - someone gave PPD numbers for it.

    Welcome back man! Hopefully you will be getting better :)

    IIRC tex and bog had just purchased 430's, maybe a few other members as well. They score anywhere from 5k-7k PPD i think depending on the work unit and your clock's.
    Sinzia says thanks.

    Hmm, not as much as I'd liked, perhaps the extra money for the 450 is worth it then, plus a little extra bragging rights too!

    Thanks for looking it up!

    Here's the results people had posted with them sinzia :D

    All that information came from around the end of page 257 and it goes onto the beginning of page 258 in case you want to read for yourself :)
    Sinzia says thanks.

    No problem! I'd say the 450's are worth it over the 430's forsure ;)

    I think the 450's are a better buy right now. My 430 died within a week and sent it back for a refund going to just grab a different card instead. I wasn't impressed with the 430 PPD for the money.

    Has anyone in here had any experience with the single PCB GTX295? Mine is running fine but as always I'd like it to run cooler as I believe I can shave off a few degrees C from its max temp. I tried making another thread but I have a feeling it's not going to see any traffic. At least the folding team will have some vested interest in this. Here's the thread I made earlier: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=138460

    Folding isn't going to be happening on the laptop GPU, it just makes things too hot :(

    Yeah most laptop cooling systems suck. Just crunch on that cpu and build a folding rig :p

    Yeah, WCG on it is a stretch already.

    I do have an i7 @ 3.8ghz w/ 2 GPUs (GTS450 + GTX260) but I'm not allowed to run any DC on it because of power usage. It's already been confiscated twice for running WCG/FAH

    That it does. I can game on it, when I actually have time (rare).

    And, no, my parents. I'm 16 ;)

    Very tempting. CP's already offered the same deal, but I'm unsure if I want to do so. I do use it for games on a reasonably regular basis, and I like having it for ripping DVDs or w/e. But I'll think it over :)

    Im 16 too my parents just think of it as a heater :p Who knows whats gonna happen this summer :mad: Electricity bill is always higher in summer as in winter our heat comes from propane so right now the electricity bill's are somewhat lower than summer. Hopefully she'll let me fold without having to pay for electricity.

    Ahh, I see. They were particularly irritated when I was running it over the summer (because it's already hot as hell in NC), but even during the winter they don't like it because they claim it costs too much compared to the gas heater

    Ahh well i don't know what it costs for a gas heater, but we usually run one of those oil filled elctric heaters in the winter to heat the basment which is where my room and my sisters room is along with the workout room and it's always on high in order to keep it all warm. Now we don't have to run that and if i leave my door open the whole basement is very warm. Shoot you can open the door to the basement and feel heat coming out :eek:

    Here's what got her going for it though. We compared the wattage my rig pulls and the wattage the heater pull's and she was all for saving money ;)

    But we all know that the heater designed to heat is more efficient at being less efficient if you catch my drift.
