    Well, actually a 950, the w3570 cant go past 3.8, so it just doesn't need it. But can't give up my air cooler for it until I have cooling for the 950. So looking to cool a 950 at 4.2+ghz, as I'm already doing 4.12 on air. And it's pretty daunting all those parts to build it! So any advice, and parts offers... bring em on! Once it's done, I will have a dedicated i7 folder as well, so.. help?

    Awesome deal! Might not be big badass cards, but it'll get you at least 8-9k PPD or more if overclocked. Post the other stuff in the WCG section bro, might gather some interest there. :toast:

    I will out of circulation the next 3-4 weeks time (poor internet where I'm going). I will leave my two rigs on and hope for the best.

    Buck, are you OK?

    Looking for a cooler for an i7 to fold. I will have all parts needed to fire an i7 folder minus an hsf in less than a week. I'm looking to build a water cooling system, but will probably take a bit. Need an air cooler than can handle a 1st gen i7 at 3.8. Anyone got something spare?

    I won a 6970 @ a lan party so that mean another 13k PPD as it frees up another 470 for folding.

    Ncix shipped my ripjawsz today, which means I might get them tomorrow. I really need an offer on an hs now, I'm ready to build my folder. Give me an offer on a good hs if anyone has one, I'm good for it, and will pay you. Please... I need to get this thing up and folding! Could pay in full around the 19th of next month. Or else I just slowly build a water cooling kit...that could take 2 or 3 months.. which should I do?

    I've a coolermaster Hyper 212 (1st version) and an Tuniq tower 120 but they'd prolly cost you more in shipping than buying a new one in Canada

    More than likely. Guess I'll just have to work on the water cooling system for now, arg, it means several more months until I can fire my i7 folder. God this is taking a long time!

    Here's a Youtube video showing the GTX 550 Ti at approx 9.6K PPD.

    F@H PPD Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti OC

    I've heard that many folders are having a problem with the newer drivers causing both the GTS 450 and GTX 550 to run at 50% usage.

    I came across a recommendation that using the 267.59 driver will fix the usage problem.

    I'm running 285.62 for drivers.



    It's an MSI GTX 550 TI OC running at 1 ghz core, it does just shy of 9k PPD like 8,993 PPD so IMO that's as good as 9k.

    So, looking at the new bigadv requirements ect, the i7 folder system I've built, minus an hs, is irrelevant. I might as well put a stop on it. Think I'll sell off the P6T and W3570 cpu and 6gigs gskill ram, and wait for 2nd hand sb-e sales when ivy comes out. I can't afford to water cool these first gen i7s, what a pain. Looks like Stanford shoved a lot of us out.....

    Stanford has raised the core count AND reduced the time you have to complete the WU. My conclusion is that you will need at least a dual CPU system, like a SR-2(3?) (with hex core, or better, CPU's) or a system like F150's-a quad AMD system. In short, -bigadv is going to require a large investment, and then you still won't know if Stanford's going to change their mind. For "the rest of us," F@H has returned to GPU's. Makes more sense to build a AMD FX chipset motherboard with 4 PCI-e slots with a lower end CPU to tend the GPU clients. The only bad thing about this is the current draw of GPU's.

    Nice to see mmaakk make an appearance again, if only on the results charts.

    I thought I read it has gone (going) up to 16 core minimum.
