    Sorry I missed that the CPUs were included. OK deal then but what about power supply? Can you use an ordinary single ATX cable?

    It takes an ATX, an 8-pin EPS, and a 4-pin. So one of the Antec 650w PSUs that I have would work fine. (This is the board)

    Could someone tell me what is so complicated with custom forms when you ship from USA to canada? Almost any other country in the world can declare 1$ for value and still be able to protect the item with an insurance covering the real value (here i can buy protection 100$ at a time for 1,80$, so 300$ worth of protection costs 5,40$, and declare any value i want for custom purpose).

    I got my cpus today: i bought them for 89 US$ each, so 178 US$ total, and have to pay 71,68 CAN$ to ups for "brokerage C.O.D. due". :mad::banghead::mad:

    I really feel like i got :nutkick:...

    Sunday afternoon I met up with TheMailman78 to take possession of this ASUS ENGTX570 Direct CU II and let me tell you it's a beast of a card. I had no idea how large it really was until I held it in my hand. I finally decided to do a suicide run with it today on a P8057. Took it up to 970/1940/1900 @ 1.125V where it was stable for an hour. Best production was 189,990 PPD. Highest temp was 47C with fans @ 65%(ambient temps are 21c). I just had to push it and crashed @ 980 core, but I now know it'll run 940-950 core 24/7. It's amazing the cooling solution that this card possesses. Downloading ASUS GPU Tweak to see if I can up the volts some more.:rockout: Wish me luck!

    Edit: ASUS GPU Tweak sucks! Back to good ol' Afterburner!

    Woot--you guys have some awesome new GPUs! :respect:
    How consistent are the QRB GPU WUs at this point?

    Each 8057 unit nets me in the 16-17k points and takes around 4 hours to complete. My 4,2 ghz hexacore needs 12 for the same output...

    Sorry--I meant to ask, how many of the GPU WUs that you're getting are the QRB ones vs standard GPU WUs?

    For the first time in as long as I can remember, TPU's F@H team is listed with no threats on EOC! :respect:

    Agreed. Got six of them since yeaterday evening, and the day before not even one. Seems like they come and go.

    Yep, noticed this as well. We will be picking up a couple of places in the next few weeks and should be within the top 30 around 1st of the year. We have some great opportunities in the top 30 as well. We must grow this team and increase our 24 hour average. I feel this is completely feasible with the Early Return Bonus on GPU's. Let's start recruiting for TPU!

    Client access express eh? I love green screen with 10 key.


    I should be adding 16or more cores in the next couple weeks as a few new builds are done, and some installs at the other store location gets done. I had to take my laptop off yesterday as I installed new firmware on my phone and didn't want any unexpected crashes while flashing.

    Several things:

    Yesterday was the largest daily point total that I've ever gotten @ 209,000 which is due partly to....
    I made my 560 Ti's available to the beta projects and they like the P8057's....
    But I forgot to 2.22 'em, so my points would have been even higher (kept asking myself why they were only doing 10,000 PPD more than my 460's)
    For those who want a comparison:
    GTX 460 1GB @ 750 MHz P8057 TPF 2 min. 30 sec for 95,723 PPD.
    GTX 560 Ti @ 900 MHz P8057 TPF 1 min. 46sec for 161,422 PPD with 2.22.:D

    Bruce, your 560ti is 384 core, correct? If so, I have realized that the GTX560ti 384 is quickly becoming the preferential card for Earl Return Bonus GPU. Even with the extra cores, my 560ti 448 and GTX570 only do marginally better(10-20K). Not worth the extra costs(both card & electrical usage). Thanks for the info Bruce!

    Correct. 384 cores. Just a pair of these: GIGABYTE GV-N560OC-1GI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    Yeah, I have to accelerate my folding box rebuild. I just got the worst xmas card possible. My mother informed me she was going to Vancouver for cancer treatment. She wouldn't give any details, so it's probably not good. Already lost my father to cancer 10 years ago. I've gotta get me some fermi cards, need to get this cancer research going!

    For the first time, my gpus folded more points in one day than my sr-2 in two:

    510k today, around half for my 4 gtx 460 and the rest to my sr-2 and gtx 275/295 box.

    That is only 10 seconds slower then my 680 running at 1268 GHz. No good for folding and no good for crunching. Could be good for gaming but I newer tried :eek:

    This morning I had to let my 450 go to the special place in heaven for used folding gear (alone with my other MSI 460 card some time ago). A GTX560ti could take its place in the near future when winter kicks in.

    Did folding just cook the GTS450 to death? :(

    I see the "best day" in the history of this team happening tonight. We are @ 2.56Mil as of 6pm EST update. I have 700K in -bigadv and 100K in ERB GPU uploading between 9pm and 12am updates. I'm gonna guess we will lay down 3.6Million easy today:rockout:. Bring everything you got boy's!:respect:
