    So I have been away from folding for a while, and I wanted to test out my new build with some folding, what clients would ya'll recommend that are easy to use.

    Thanks! :toast:

    I'm liking the 50k+ daily...not enough to switch CPUs over from WCG, but enough to pick up another GTX460 once I get another C2D sold :toast:
    We'll get to see if a 650w PSU will handle 3 GTX460s and an i7 :rolleyes:

    I would use Fahtracker V2, but that's me. It's easy to set up and handles Intel/Nvidia hardware very well. I know the V7 client is out, but I don't the the interface.

    I certainly don't like the V7 either...and it's more confusing to set up in HFM. I'm still using it because I figure it will become required


    EDIT: I've lost internet access in the dorm, so PPD may be down if the GPUs run out of work

    Guess I'm weird.. I like the v7. You can have a new mixed gpu/cpu setup folding in about 2 minutes....

    Guess the flexing my folding muscle test worked.. 17k for 12hrs, and I still have one more i7 and a 9800gtx to add. I could do 45k a day. Not bad I suppose. I'll continue to fold part time at night until I get my 2nd 480... hint hint! I will from time to time add my 480s into the mix... what's that, 85k? Wheeee! Never imagined that kind of ppd when I first started doing this years ago...

    That would be amazing! :toast:

    I'm pulling 20.3k PPD from a GTX470, so you should be doing quite well with two GTX480s :toast:

    C'mon Pete. You know it's getting cold up there and you need to crank up the "space heaters" 24/7.

    I can't wait until it gets cold enough down in Florida where I don't need 3 tons of cooling capacity 24/7 to maintain 80F temps during the day. :nutkick:

    It is coming guys...

    Yeah, it's dropping to 5c at night now, but still bounces back up to 25c in the day, and several more c inside my apt!

    Don't forget that the GTX480 also doubles as a grill!:roll:

    Yeah, they are hot. Still, I get lots of heat shooting out the back of my box with 2 285s folding! Don't think 1 480 will beat that. Of course, 2 will!

    I'd imagine that two GTX480s could easily be 500w by themselves. Rather enormous :eek:

    Hopefully we get the 5757pt WUs back, then I'd imagine that two GTX480s could do a comfortable 45k PPD :toast:

    Still hoping that my psu, that can peak at 900w, will handle them. I'm going to oc the hell out of the first one, but once I go sli it's stock clocks and voltage. And maybe even slight under volt/clock....
