    Hi Fits

    I'm sure that there are several lists floating around. Here is one http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardwarecanucks-f-h-team/46010-hwc-folding-home-project-ppd-database.html

    The future of CPU and the big points are AMD 4P rigs. Thats at least the cheapest solution. A high end Intel based 4P would trash it but the investment is out of reach for most.

    The new (beta) WUs for +16 treaded PC is now released and that will be the next bigadv.
    Fitseries3 and thebluebumblebee say thanks.

    i just have a i5 655k and soon a ati 6950.

    i just need a decent cpu cooler to get started. this stuck one wont cut it for 100% cpu load

    i'd post in the pay it forward thread but im afraid i'll get attacked as usual despite me being the one who started the TPU WCG team. im not looking for praise here but some respect would be nice.

    i do thank you for your help though. ;)

    Would a Cooler Master TX3 with 2 fans work for you ?

    Well in other news, the democrats of California in their infinite stupidity and never ending quest for more of my hard earned money, have decided it's okay to charge people with solar panels $70 extra a month and charge me double for any non solar electricity I use. So the money I was saving by my solar panels is going out the window, making it impossible for me to continue to fold. This is not official yet, but it is highly likely that this will become reality.

    So IMO it's not a matter of but when, I will have to stop folding, I am committed to reaching the 5 million mark, but after that I am likely done, unless by some miracle this does not become reality.

    I really am sad that I will have to stop, but I will keep you posted one way or the other.:shadedshu

    time to buy a windmill and go completely self sufficient.

    thats ridiculous to charge people with solar panels a surcharge. they should give you a discount for being better for the environment.

    do they give a tax credit for having a solar panel?

    i've heard of some people actually getting paid for electricity because their windmills actually put power back into the grid.

    The power company for San Diego (SDG&E) takes any surplus I put into the grid, but I do not get payed for it. I did get a large tax credit and a rebate when they were installed, but that only applied to the cost of the panels not the electricity or the installation. It's really demented that I am being punished for using less electricity. As for a windmill, even if I could afford one of ample size and output for my needs, it's highly unlikely there would be sufficient wind for it, let alone that I would be allowed to have it or that I am even zoned for it.


    It's sad times indeed, I want to go back to Texas!:mad:

    Fits, for Chimp, I had my i5-650 @ 4.2 (H-50, never got over 40C) and got 5-5500 PPD while running a GTX460. You have to use the V7 Client for that 6950.

    thats ridiculous, and extortionate , if it were me though id create a small power bank(of batteries obv) that the panels fed into then invert that into a seperate mains loop to run folders on ,and as far as the elecy co go they wouldnt know about it or id have it removed either way id then pay less.

    IMHO thats how solar and wind should be used anyway as local power , and just used to power low voltage lighting throughout the house plus a constant low power water conserve boiler on perma heat, plus whatever other houshold items it had the juice to feed then have mains just for the kettle and cooking:D

    If my country adopted that policy (no return into the grid/no pay for surplus) we would lose 12 % (wind mills alone, 2011 figures) of our electricity production. No one would ever erect a new 3 MW mill and the existing ones would die out. Not sure that would be a good idea but I don’t live in the free world with nuclear power forced down my thought :eek:

    This discussion is not in the right forum. Just sad that some will stop folding because of stupid rules.

    Are you folding with what is on your system specs? I just received a P8XXX -bigadv on my SR-2 w/ dual X5670 (@ 4.0Ghz) running ubuntu linux. I've yet to verify the PRCG info since HFM.net is not tracking it yet.

    If it were a (beta) 8101 kill it. 50% points. Plenty of post on that one around [H].

    Edit: Beta testing seems to be done after a very short alfa ditto inhouse. They really got it wrong this time. It is normal that they send beta to non-beta tester (by mistake?) but here (non beta forum) they act like the receiver is a criminal. I'm no longer in the 4P shopping mode, amateurs and you know how I'm pointing at.

    Just a heads up, I'll have to break down my 2 folders on the 13th, and put them back up on the 15th. New owners of my building. They want to do a walk through on the 14th, and I don't want them to see, and feel, my folders. People don't seem to care if you want to cure cancer!

    It talks about it here: http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=20717

    I'll let it complete and hopefully pick up a 6903/04 afterwards:D

    I am now looking for 2 used 470s. My 285s need to go to my folding box now, it's time. Please any offers.

    Hardware Alert

    Newegg has a Shell Shocker starting at 6:00PM EST, 3:00 PST on Refurbished GTX 560TI's.

    Don't you have that backwards?;) There were 3 GTX470's on my local CL, 1 for $100, and a matched set for $260.

    My son is going to be away for the weekend, so I decided to get SMP going on his system. During the CC, that i5-650 at 4.2GHz got 5000+ PPD. It's only clocked at 3.2 GHz now, but what is the first WU that it got? An 8011. 90 PPD! Good-bye, SMP.

    Edit: I did not have my passkey in the client, so that may have affected the points because it would not have included the bonus points.

    That GTX 560TI is $160, free shipping. 1Yr ESP Included, upgrade to 2Yrs for $9.99, ends 2/10.

    Edit: They're gone

    It sure looks like there was a points correction in this latest no-points then points update. Mine should have been around 20,000 but was almost 41,000.

    Bogmali, I just got the invite to Cloud Services and set up my account. What are the setting in the dashboard you are using? Total Linux nooby here:eek:.

    edit: looks like i'm limited to 20gb ram, so no 8 core instances.
