    Merry Christmas to everyone!

    May the life be sweet and gentle with you and the people you care for.

    I wish you all good health, the power to change what you can, the wisdom to recognize there are things you cannot, and enough brain cells to see the difference...

    Well my sr-2 died last week (got the 2E eight beep "my pci-e slots don't work anymore" code), so the safe part is kinda not fitting me, but my family is ok and i,m having a good time with my family. I'll see next week what i'll do about it...

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Hope yours is going better than mine. My folding rig keeps locking up. Lost 14K PPD. :wtf: I think the HX520 Corsair P/S is just too weak. I have a spare FX650 I'll put in tomorrow. In the meantime I have crossed my fingers and turned down the clocks on my video cards.

    Just got home from visiting the family. Found all rigs froze yesterday and had to reboot them. Must have been the bad weather we had come through here. Lost a days work but up and running now.

    Sorry to hear that. Maybe you had near "brown-out" conditions with local electric company?

    OK forget the waterblock I found one. But now i dont need it lol. Gonna use it anyway. I bought a gtx 480 off CL for 100 bucks took it home tried folding and it went to 110c and shut off. I had the fan at 100% so tried underclocking undervolting and nothing worked so took it apart and seen that the heatsink was only touching 1 side. Put on new TM not even the good stuff just some old coolermaster crap I had here installed the heatsink and fired it up. Its pulling down 28800 ppd on a 7626 with fan at 100% and temp is 76c!!!

    Woe is me

    I had a bit of a crisis this morning. I was messing around with my main PC and for some reason it decided to die. :wtf: I could not restart it. :banghead: In a three hour PITA, I had to tear my house apart looking for cables, transfer my HD's, Optical drive, etc to my folding box. Therefore, I won't be folding for a while, or maybe only folding while I sleep.

    I have to decide what to do about it. Not so bad since it's time to build a new PC anyway. Nothing special, just a mid-range box to do surfing, e-mail, gaming, and watch an occasional video. I mostly play RTS games so it doesn't have to be totally kick-ass. Decisions, decisions, decisions. :confused:

    Ok, another weird points given. I got 15,502 points instead of 14, 093 last night??????

    I turned on my last GTX 460 to make up for the fact that my son has been using his computer, with the 2 560 Ti's, during the break instead of letting it Fold. What's up with that?

    An extra 500 points? As they say, don't look a gift horse in the mouth. ;)

    With the 762x WUs, I get about 27k with each 470 at 725Mhz and 43k with the 680 at 1202MHz. I stopped doing SMP cause it really doesn't play well with Kepler apparently. I was getting like a fifth of what I should have been getting.

    I am incredibly scared to see my first full month's folding electric bill. Somebody get the paddles ready.

    All GTX 460 @ 750MHz. MSI460 is 768MB
    GTX560 TI's @ 900MHz
    As you can see, the PPD is quite high for these P762x's, second only to the QRB's. When these first came out, the PPD was under 10,000 PPD for each of my cards. I've only seen P762x's since the QRB's.
    When I started back Folding this winter with the 2 GTX460's (without the 3rd GTX 460) and the 2 GTX 560 Ti's, I expected to get, at best, around 62K per day. Now, with these P762x's, HFM is estimating 97K per day! GTX 560 Ti's rock.:p

    I've been crunching on all my Nvidia cards lately, but considering bringing some of them back to F@H. The 560Ti 448 is not even close to keeping up with the 570 in BOINC, so that's an obvious choice along with the GTX460. Looks like I can throw another 50K PPD on the fire.

    BTW, gonna dump 4x -bigadv today for a total of 1.4M:rockout:.

    Well finally did it. We been going back and forth for 2 weeks and finally reached an agreement. Now the proud owner of a Asus gtx ROG 580 Matrix Platinum. Cant wait to see how this folds. Picked up a Corsair TX 850 just in time. Seems that theres alot going on in WCG, and seems that this forum is kinda silent at times. 20 people returning results today. Wonder what we can do to get some excitement and people back in Folding@home. Any thoughts?

    I'm open for ideas. Maybe subteam competitions(kinda hard with 20 team members and laborous to maintain)? Maybe even time for another Folding contest?
