    Me and my big mouth. The guy was selling a GTX 660 for $100 because he did not want to deal with troubleshooting/RMA'ing a card that was hick-upping on him every hour or so while gaming. I didn't want to buy a card that was defective, so I pressured him on how/when/where he purchased it (so that I could RMA if necessary) and he took the info that I was asking him and is going to use it to try to fix his problem. Oh well, I really don't have a place for it any way, except to start to replace my GTX 460's.
    On another note, there are three video cards on my local CL that may interest Folders. An Asus GTX 460 TOP 768MB, an Asus GTX 560, and a MSI GTX 560 TI Twin Frozer II OC (son's best friend is supposed to be getting $600 to build a system and this card would do wonders for him). If anyone is interested in these or anything else, PM me and let me know. Even if its "I'll pay $x for "fill in the blank" and I'll keep my eyes open.

    Well I am back and folding again, at least for a little while, as I will be moving to another state in short order and haven't any idea of the power situation in the house I will be living in.

    Also seems I passed the 8 million point mark this morning.

    Would a dual 3GHz Nehalem setup be able to run bigadv? If so, what PPD could I expect?

    Sorry i have not responded yet to the PM. I have been researching the question, but found little data. Are the CPU's W3570's?

    You would need to overclock them to make the deadline, but sounds like your mobo will not be capable of O/C. Need a SR-2...

    OK. That deal fell through anyways--the person who was supposed to come buy all three of my HPs never showed up. Maybe I'll be able to manage something before too long.

    I have a GTX550TI coming on (probably) Tuesday to add to my fleet. Provided the seller isn't scamming me, I purchased a 600w Corsair PSU and a 550TI for $50 :toast:

    Gotta vent. Lost a 356K Point -bigadv WU @ 98% today. This is the 6180 rig and it is super stable, but I'm going through the paces to figure out what caused it. I mean c'mon, 98%?? Gimme a break!

    Chimp Challege Captains notice

    Seeing that we are onto another year and and another Chimp challenge some of the captains figure we give early notice

    so pick your CC captain and PM me(EVGA) or Adak (OCN) or businesswithgreg(OCN) or for short BWG

    and get signed onto the CC captain forum and keep updated on discussions
    http://chimp.sagacioustechnologies.com/index.php?board=3.0

    Just so you know OCN has proposed dropping use of the chimp names (so we all run under our own names)

    and OCF has proposed the last week or two of April

    it's either a straight up Point race or a split between growth and points only
    ie simplifying the formula

    I'd be a big fan of doing the end of April--that way those of us that are at school can take advantage of the free electricity for it. And being able to run under our own names would also be advantageous IMO.

    Being from Florida(read= hot, hot, & hot), I'm game for an earlier start to this years Chimp Challenge.


    • Do you guy's want to run under a combined name(ChimPowerUp) or under our usual team name without requiring any name changeover(s)?

    • Would you rather run in a straight up points race; or growth and points?

    I'm quite sure that it is hot there :p
    It seems like an increase in points might be most beneficial to us; that way we'll have a good boost when the WCG folks come over, but our output will likely still remain limited in an absolute sense.

    The 9600GSO is back folding now and I also just added a GTX550TI. Depending on when I have time, I also have two more 96SP G92 cards to get running :toast:

    EDIT: Just added an 8800GT as well. Still have the two 9600GSOs, which may yet go in the 3770k system--I'm going to move GPUs around a bit this weekend.

    i want to keep the name the same honestly. Combined name seems more appropriate but im old fashioned.

    As for points vs growth I would also like to just keep it points.

    growth on a team level by members encourages cheating and private deals.

    for example

    join my team for chimp challenge and fold and I will give you a GTX680

    also growth by ladder or rank like

    they moved the most they went from 600,000 to 30,000

    this can be done by one person depending on how low on the ladder a team is.

    I think raw points and a single team name are the easiest and less flawed way of judging the competition.

    Looks like Stanford is not updating. I finished a unit at 3 PM and it still isn't showing. Anyone else see this?

    Not that I know of. Looks like you need to post over on the F@H forum and they can check for you. You could also check the status of that server.

    It finally posted, 9 hours later. I was afraid I lost a 14K PPD WU. All is well. :)
