    How many days did he have it before this happened?

    That just suxs xbonez.
    It could have very well been his fault not yours or the motherboards.

    Well, I just checked tracking and he received it earlier today. I really am completely clueless what happened to it (i suspect reckless OC'ing merely coz of the fact that 10min before shipping it, it was running perfectly fine for me). Anyways, I'll swallow the loss, I guess.

    So, I'm in a major (but temporary) cash crunch right now and I need money in my paypal so i can refund that guy NAO!!

    I'll sell my 470 to any folder for 150 bucks (shipped, original box yada yada yada). Its the Asus one I had bought a few months ago (and had shipped to Tex earlier, only for him to ship it back to me for my 480).

    Grab it for a good price, and to help a fellow folder.

    Daaam, I can't wait to try!
    Edit: I can get almost 20k just on my 2 285s, I think 60k is obtainable.

    That's not an everyday thing. I dropped a bigadv today.

    Does it appear that we are running into another -bigadv shortage?

    Yes, it has been so for the past 2 days. No or almost no 6900s are released and all what I got was a 2684.

    Sold my Asus 470. Its spot will be taken by my 8800GT, so a net drop of 10k PPD. Oh well...

    The guy who he sold his evga board too said it's defective and needs a refund so bonez needed to come up with some money to pay the dude since he bought sandy with the money from the x58 stuff.


    Anyways, rig has been running great all night! Getting around 15k PPD on the CPU. 2nd work unit is about done, and gpu's are running strong and COOL ;)

    Ah, I see. That makes more sense.

    Glad to hear that your system is going strong :)

    Yeah man! It's only doing smp for a while until i can either build me a dedicated system for nonsense and everyday tasks, or until i build a dedicated 1156 -bigadv system.

    So, I removed the 470 and put in the 8800 in my folding rig. Should I fold on the GPU or will the drop in PPD of the CPU be more than the 8800 will get me?

    GPU2 puts MUCH less overhead on the CPU than GPU3, especially a GF100/110 card.

    My GTX9800+ barely make up the loss that I have on my hex doing -bigadv. Try and see how it will work out for you.

    Geez, so after I sold the 470 at a shitty price, the guy with my motherboard PMs me saying he's gonna try using it and he might keep it.

    With my 470 folding, my bigadv was getting about 38-40k PPD. With no GPU client, i'm getting 45k. I think I'll just let it fold by itself until I get a card that can churn out atleast 10k.

    GPU2 hardly touches CPU PPD anyways, I'd give that a shot ;)

    That is not correct. When it comes to -bigadv any other CPU activity has a big effect. Crunching is an other matter.

    I'm not sure I agree with that, running GPU2 on my GTX260 dropped my CPU PPD from ~16.5k to ~16k, which was very acceptable IMO since the card did ~7.5k

    That is not -bigadv folding (I hope). Have a look at this http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=14757 . Anyway that is my expericance with a hex. 1½ min more cost on the bonus. If you have a TPF of 35 min it has less effect.
