    You should know ;). Summers are typical between 20 and 25 C, winters is around +2 to -2 C but we had -23 C last year as a minimum.

    Why should I know?

    That sounds very pleasant compared to what we have here in NC...in the summer it will frequently hit 35-38C, sometimes even 42C. In the winter it's typically 0 to -5C. Rarely much colder than this, however :shadedshu

    Denmark/Sweden (your stated country of living) is just 2 mills apart. I know that you are US based but you got to get your background story straight if you want to pass as a Swede.

    If we (Denmark) had to use our AC during summer (not often we have to) most people would stop running their PCs. 1 kWh is $ 0.36.

    Passed a million points today :)

    EDIT: Just purchased a GTX470 from newtekie1, any idea what sort of PPD it should do?

    EDIT2: These 5187pt WUs are unpleasant. They make my cards run 5c hotter, and drop my PPD by 5k/GPU :(

    Shutting down my GPU's and SMP rigs, as it make no sense to waste the electricity with the 4P rig running. I'll get some wattage measurements this weekend to share with you guy's.

    Hope you can get your GTX 260 fixed, as 100c sounds pretty bad. :(

    Buck, you've got me dreaming of building a 2P Interlagos rig. Too bad server parts are so freakin expensive and pretty much non-overclockable, but the output is definitely amazing if you can put up the initial money to get the stuff.

    5 hrs til next dump(6PM EST) of 333K points. After this WU I am flashing the bios to the OCNG bios. Should be able to net an additional 60-70K PPD, but we will see! I may not start another WU until late tonight due to testing the O/C.

    Wow, 60-70k PPD extra due to an OC....any idea how much it should increase the power draw?
    Do you know that the CPUs will be stable @ 2.8GHz?

    Once you that thing stable, we should climb back up the ladder on stats. I will be switching my 2 X5570 from WCG to F@H while my i7-980 replaces it crunching.

    It should be stable, as long as CPU and VRM temps are in line.
    Agreed. This has been a long time coming my friend!

    well i re TIMd and i cant get it under. she peaked at 101C she ramps slower but the fan cant stop the heat. IDK what to do im racking down the people i bought it from and iv contacted the riginal owner (person they got it from) to see if anyone has a recipt. its a PNY with a limited lifetime warrentee and its considered legacy. idk if ill run into much luck but if i do maybe they will bump me up.

    That would be pretty cool, I could see PNY perhaps giving you a GTX650 as a warranty replacement. Hopefully you'll get it solved :toast:

    My PNY 460s run warm (75c-80c), but certainly not nearly that hot :eek:

    I used to have a 460 i run a 260 now my 460 never ran that hot either. luck might be on my side if i can get a response. i have the xlr8 216 so maybe its just new enough to be replaced.

    Is anyone else experiencing problems? F@H went down for me last night no stat updates or WUs my play station has failed getting a WU for god knows how long at or a little before midnight lastnight.


    EDIT:: nvm i went to their server page apparently alot of their systems are down or not accepting WUs and out of the 4 ps3 servers 1 is down and the other i havent been able to connect to.

    Please keep me in mind guys. I'm still looking for 2 570s or better to replace my 2 285s. If I get them, I'll put my 285s out to pasture to fold 24/7. I have to slowly rebuild my folding farm. I guess I could consider 2 470s or 480s but that would probably be a bit much for my psu..... and probably not worth the minimal performance gains. I suppose I could pick up a 4 series just to fold it, they still kick a 285s butt in that area. But I really want to upgrade my main computer, and just can't afford new cards. I really wouldn't mind folding again, I feel guilty!

    Why can't you fold on the GTX285s and the i7? Those would do very nicely, even if not as well as GTX4/5 cards ;)

    Because it's my main computer, I am constantly using it. That's why I built a seperate server/folding box. It only has a single 260 in it right now, and I can't afford to burn out another card until I get more. I've gone through multiple cards now, and on a fixed income, I have trouble affording that! And I really want a bit more muscle than 2 285s for my games at 1920x1200 res. If I can get better cards, like I said, I'll throw my 2 285s at folding full time.....
    Edit: Don't forget, I'm CamelJock, I folded for years here already, so you know I'll do it again!
    Edit2: and yes, I'll fold the xeon too....
