    I figure if I can go without eating for 3 weeks to populate ram on my main rig, I can do it to fire up my i7 folding rig. I need either air cooling, or an offer on a cpu water cooling system for a first gen i7. My dam 950 is killing me on air, and this same air cooler can handle my 965 folding. Anyone got any water cooling parts for 1366, I'm in the market. I will pay. If I get this i7 folder up, which is only missing an hs, I will be in the top 5 likely.

    Good news. I just added 2 GTX 460 1GB to my Folding arsenal. Unfortunately, I lost a motherboard over the summer while it was just sitting there. Refused to boot last fall and upon investigating further, found that some caps were bulging. So, I'm going to have to pull my 9600GSO's and put the other GTX 460 in there, which means that I will add 20k PPD and lose ~8400 PPD. Hmmm, I do have another dual slot motherboard sitting here.... (I will have the 9600 GSO's (8400 PPD), an 8800GT (5000 PPD), and an 8800GTS (6000 PPD) just sitting here)

    Do I remember that you can't Fold Fermi with G92? Even with Client 7? Trying to get ready for the Chimp Challenge.

    Lesson learnt - don't power down. ;). It happens quit often (in my professional life) that equipment fails to run after a period of stand still.

    On a side note there is a 2-4 days delivery time on a replacement pump for my WC'ed rig. I found a place in driving distance from my home that has a other brand in stock so hopefully I get it running tomorrow. Sorry to steal your tread....

    Well, looks like I settled on a D14 cooler, that I'll probably order at the end of the month. Was looking at the h100, but for the extra expense and hassle of installation of the rad ect, I think the d14 with stronger fans will outperform it. Once I get that, I can pass my polaris 120 on to my i7 folding rig, which is currently sitting in a box, with everything on it ready to go. So I'll be able to fire up the i7 folding, and add a 9800gt as well as I'll have another video slot to fill! If anyone comes across a used d14 cooler though, let me know, as this new one will cost me close to $120 after shipping and taxes.

    @ AlienIs God don't forget to add the client-type = advanced switch to your gpu slot otherwise the only WU's you'll get are the older GPU2 511 point ones which is what it looks like you've got in that screenie which are slower as the don't use OpenCL/MM

    which version of F@H are you using as it's a different switch for V7

    the switch is
    client-type :: advanced not -advmethods
    added to the extra slot options

    Yes, I was using the "advanced" flag as explained in the guide, I just loosely called it advmethods in my post. :)

    I'm about to punt my main desktop out the window, because after adding "advanced" to my 6950, it runs 0x16 core at 0% GPU usage with 21 hours estimated time on a 11293 (and also nerfed my 550 Ti to 85% GPU usage as well). I would have to assume as usual that core 0x16 conflicts with my GTX 550 Ti 0x15 card in the same rig, as my Crunch/Fold 2 rig with the 5770/6670 (pure AMD) seems to be going through the 11xxx units in ~8? hours each. My main desktop worked fine with the 6950 running dumb 0x11 WUs and the 550 Ti running 0x15 WUs simultaneously. :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    OpenCL/CUDA driver conflict maybe? :(

    Monday I will be back to get my slice of the pie. Just before I left last week my AX1200 was making some odd noises I really don't think a PSU should make. The replacement arrives Monday so I can get my rig back in the hunt!

    If all goes well, I should have my GTX295 back online today or tomorrow. Replacement board arrives today for my Pentium D rig in which I will be installing the card in. :rockout:

    Slowly contributing some points :)

    Running main rig @ night (4 threads no GPU otherwise i cant sleep due to the high pitched high velocity gpu fan noise) and laptop during work hours (2 threads, not that special).

    Figured out my folding problems with my main rig, and had no choice besides pulling the GTX 550 Ti out of the system and throwing it on my just built Pentium DC E6600 @ 3.8GHz/ASRock G41M-S3/8GB DDR3-1333 system. My 6950 instantly started folding correctly once the 550 Ti was removed.

    I'll have to move this system to my work because I'm pulling over 700w now in my room according to the Kill-A-Watt I just got this week. My parents will basically destroy me if I maintain that kind of power usage 24/7, but it doesn't matter at my work because let's just say one of our two suites we rent has a "slow" power meter and we barely get charged anything no matter the usage. :)

    Ok team I have no electricity until probably Saturday due to the damage done by the winterstorm.

    EDIT: Only the SR-2 rig at the house is down, the rest is at work and functioning;)

    All my rigs are back together and running after some downtime moving parts around, so I should be back in the 20-30K range again. Crunch/Fold 1 is at my house, 2-4 are at work taking advantage of cheap electricity. :)

    So, can a 4c/8t i7 only run smp stuff now? And I guess 20k would be reasonable at 3.8ghz? Just want to figure out how fast I'll blow past 15th place.....
