    Switched two rigs to ver. 6.34 (drop in update) and received a Core A5 WU (P6901). It's similar to it's sibling (P6900) but runs cooler:rockout:

    Anybody have a link to the new a5 client? I've been so busy lately and haven't really even touched the PC besides for music. Got a job now so paying for electricity is no problem now. Just thought i might as well fold on the PC sence it doesn't do anything else besides sit idle.

    I just noticed that now you can see how many treads you are using. You use 7 I see.

    Finally got my new rig running, upgrading some older rigs, still need a new water block for it as the temps are a bit high with just the air cooler....
    But with 64K+ PPD I am very :D :D ...... i7 970@4.2, will try for 4.5GHz when I go water...

    My 4125 MHz @ 8-8-8-20 (1650 MHz) does the 6901 in 21:21 with a 2 TB Black Caviar.

    Running at 4.2GHz I think the RAM is @8-8-8-16 (1690 MHz) ...with a TPF of 20:48 on the P6901

    Haven't really nailed down the overclock as I will wait till I get my water block.

    This weekend I was moving apartments, so I had both my rigs offline. Main rig is back online now, and folding rig should be online in about a day.

    Well room get's too hot with the window closed and with it cracked it get's to cold. Decided to fire up the good ole 8800gts's! Switched over to smp 7 and got the 8800's going strong again. Got 18 hours in monday and today so that's enough for a 470. Im hoping to grab a 470 or somethin soon and just move the 8800's down in my mobo and use all 3 cards for moar ppd. We'll see though but im doing fine on cash now ;)

    Do you all think my PC Power and Cooling 750w would handle a 470 two 8800gts's and my 920?

    I don't see why not the 470 isn't that big a power hog and 2 8800gts's would draw about the same or only a little more than the 470 so you should be good to go

    I wouldn't do that in a folding rig. You're asking alot from your psu to run 24/7. And then you have the different generation gpu core issue. It might work with Tracker V2.

    So then i should grab a bigger PSU just to be safe?

    Or i could just get the 470 sell of the 8800's and grab another 470? That wouldn't be too bad and it'd be some sweet gpu power! Then maybe a single slot 450 or 460 in the bottom and call it good? Have the 9xx point work units returned yet on gpu3 or are we still getting the newer ones with less ppd?

    Not sure about WU but my 470 still nets about 15.5-17k PPD which is as high as I've ever seen it go ever since I got it.

    My plan was to install Linux this morning on one box but I found it had crashed during the night. Next opportune time will be Friday. Reports are that people find a +10 % reduction in TPF for -bigadv with Linux and that would mean + 10 k PPD on just that rig. I will report back but the frame times for the new 6901 and the Linux/Windows talks can be found here - http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.ph...17730&start=30

    THIS IS SPARTA...., oops.... This is Techpowerup, home of THE W1zzard and his fancy PCI-e power meter. (repeating myself again:rolleyes:) Get yourself a power meter and figure out your present power draw. IMHO, a PSU should not be loaded 24/7 at greater than 80%, which is 750 watts at the wall in your case. There aren't any power numbers for the 8800GTS's, but you can get a good idea by looking at the 9800GTX+ or GTS250. (with you having 2 of these cards, you can quickly determine their idle and load power draws using only a power meter) Folding does not draw as much power as W1zzards Max power numbers, but using them will leave a margin of safety. BTW, from my experience, a GTX460 draws the same wattage as the 8800GTS while Folding. Also, the GTX460 (768MB) is still the PPD/$ champ, although with some of the prices I've seen on GTX470's..... Just understand that the 470's pull a lot more watts and put a bigger load on the system (CPU cycles) than do the 460's.

    Cool, i'll have to put some numbers together and see what they would pull for watts. Where can i find w1zzards power draw numbers?

    really so thats why my SilverStone ST75F-P comes with an 100% 24/7 draw @ 50c guarantee
    oh sorry didn't see that bit about IMHO so it's just your opinion....:p
