    Is a N210 any good at folding? No? I'm building a new rig for some outdoor cameras and I´m using some old part (i920, a Noctua 14 and some nice Muskins) but it might be a bit off an overkill so the overhead will be directed to folding (after a crunching run-in periode). As some will know I don't do GPU folding unless it get really cold, hence the 210.

    I have 2 rigs down today, SR-2 and i7-970. The 970 will be back on tomorrow but the SR-2 will take a break until the new CPU's come in.

    Now we are #25 :(

    Well, we have just been passed by Hardware.no and ARS Technica Team Eggroll and have settled in at #25. We are very close to re-capturing #24, but we gott'a put our back into it. I'll be dropping a -bigadv each day for the next 3 days. I will bring online my HTPC(Phenom II x4 b50) and my gaming rig(trusty ol' Phenom 9850BE & 8800GTS 512mb) for an additional 20K PPD. Feel free to dust off any old hardware and resurrect it honor of Team TPU!

    Yesterday I got a windows dialog that said my FahCore_a3.exe stopped working on one of my rigs while loading a 6068. I closed the program with the dialog and it picked up another WU. When that one completed I got the same dialog three times at which time I shut down the rig.

    This morning I got up before the sun came up and just got home around 2:30 PM CST to find that another rig now has the same dialog but this time it's a 6071.

    I closed the dialog and it pick up another 6071 and gave me the same error. I've closed the client for now.

    Is there anything on the folding forum that I've missed yesterday or today? Suggestions?

    Brought the GTX260 back to life today (and the E2140 for the WCG team). PSU was at my door when I got home from work, apparently even the usps leaves packages at your door these days.

    I'm home after 8 weeks of work in Turkey. One rig was not running, but that I knew, since rig-sitter had turned it of due to air bubbles in the cooling system. I tried for 1 hour to pick up a new job and gave up. The other rig is 35 % in a -bigadv after it had been idle for two days tryring to pick up a new job. Not really happy about folding atm.

    My ppd is going to bounce around for awhile, doing a bunch of extra work.. a question, do you get bonus points for smp? just wondering if it's worth while to fold my q9450, which is now in my folding box #1.

    Extremely hot here, close to heat stroke, over 100f, and no not funny we canucks do not like continuous 100f + temps on any day. One week of ac, then I'll be back to folding. And one of my boxes can pump out more now!

    In the same boat, avoiding heatstroke > folding!

    Got my ac running full blast right now, gawd it's nice! Got my old es version 965x running at 3.84ghz, not sure if I'll get more at under 1.4v, poor old chip. At 3.84ghz I've got 1.312vcore, and 72c max core temp at 100% load like prime ect. I need 1.4+v to do 4ghz stable, so I figure early stepping, not going to do it.... Waiting for my 2nd x58 mobo to come, then I'll see what this puppy can do.:)

    has any one on here ever tried to build a mini super computer, ive been thinikn of the future of the redundant dual cores thats coming and i am pondering putting something together to get a feel for how it would work hived up, never used lynux before and most methods ive seen use it

    im thinking it could be a good ppd earner given higher core counts??

    Interesting, I've never got stable gaming with clocks over 1512 shaders on my 2 gtx285s. With this i7 system, I'm now up to 1584 shaders stable. I may try higher, but for now this is cool! My i7 is an older CO stepping, so it looks like I won't be getting killer clocks out of it, oh well.
    Edit: sorry, off topic... I'm enjoying my i7... looks like local heat is starting to go down, hopefully I can produce more ppd soon.

    Oh thank god, today is the last day for heat, and it probably won't even get that hot... tomorrow temps drop to 74f, then next day 65f and shouldn't go past 70f after that. Today could hit 90f, which means about 90f even with my little ac running inside. Tomorrow ac comes out and folding boxes go back on full time. And I try some smp on my q9450!

    Just throwing a question out there, how much could I get 2 used gtx470s for, if I retired my gtx285s to folding land?

    depends on how your going to go about it, are you just going to have a bunch of cases or use something like 1 or 2 U server racks

    take a look here http://www.clustermonkey.net//content/view/13/32/
