    My Antec 650w runs an OCed i7 and two GTX470s (225w IIRC) with no issue :toast:

    My BFG LS-550 runs a moderately OC'd X6 1100t and two 6950s. It's certainly not happy about it though. Spits out tons of heat.

    I'm running my 780 tonight, lets see if my 'Bonus Status' is still valid or if I have to do the 10wu's all over again.

    Which GTX 780 did you get? I bought one of these last week;

    EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB...

    Running it stock and the boost clock is 1124 Mhz not 1020Mhz. My best day has been 170k points.

    I have the vanilla reference EVGA I picked up @ launch, but usually I do not fold during the summer months. Its unusually cool today so I decided to fire it up.

    On the 8900 WU its running 2min57sec TPF for an estimated 164k PPD. Quite the step up from the 580L it replaced.

    What are the chances that my i5 laptop can use it's HD4000 to fold?

    I am thinking little to none.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, to lazy to search through 500+ pages of posts. :D

    164k PPD from a single GPU???!?!?
    It won't work, I already tried the HD4000 in my Thinkpad.

    Edit: Okay, okay, enough with the snide reply. You need HD5000 or newer to Fold.

    Yeah, the PPD with the 8900WU is pretty spectacular for the new high end cards. I think the hierarchy for top F@H cards right now (in raw PPD production) is led by the Titan and then followed by the 7990 and GTX 780. Not sure which of those two is faster, though.

    The54thvoid posted his Titan @ 1100mhz that returns 179kPPD, thats pretty nice. My 780 is clocked at 1123mhz.

    On another note, I remember someone noticing that the HD series from Intel was being recognized as a co-processor in WCG/BOINC. So while you can't fold on it, you might be able to crunch on it in the future.

    Right, BOINC recognizes my 4000. However, so far, the GPU WU's have been used up! I hope that there are some new one's being planned for the future, it would be nice to be able to use this, ahem, GPU for something! :rolleyes:

    Thanks guys for responding, like I said, I really didn't think there was much hope of this thing working. I did want to know for sure, and now I do. Thanks, and sorry I can't help out over here. Guess I will just be Crunching, for the time being (big plans for my future).

    Take care and hopefully, sooner than later, I will be back over here with some, or more, Folding-Newbie questions!!

    The only Titan in the team competion over here. He has his own catagory in Division Three. Either he is out of town or he killed his Titan. @onedub, you should be putting up some pretty good numbers soon. The core 17 wu's rock. :)

    Just started folding again, I think I ran folding in highschool a decade ago. I put the team number for TPU in. I am folding on the 7970 + Xeon, is it safe to run my 7970 at 57*C 100% load all the time? Will this diminish its life? How do I tell how many flops (? speed ?) its pulling?

    I suggest running that card a few hours a day only to prevent uneccesarily much strain on the electric components (hiigh end cars draw a lot of power and strain the cards a bit much for 24/7 crunching). It will also keep the electric bill affordable (I also do not fold 24/7 on my HD 6670, although my C2D E8400 is running BOINC about 24/5).

    You should configure your client with a passkey and for beta WUs so you can get >6000 PPD and into the 100K PPD range after you complete 10 beta WUs. 57c is great, my cards run ~75c and one of them has consistently high VRM temperatures, but runs fine (for now).

    yes completely safe 57c is a good temp the only thing I can say is expect a slightly higher than normal power bill if doin 24/7 folding

    It's been a while, but I'm back to folding again. The G92 cards are long gone (well, they're actually still at home in the closet) because their PPD/W was terrible. However, I have my HD7930, HD7950, and GTX560TI448 going ATM because their PPD and PPD/W is pretty good.

    Let me know if/when you want to possibly pick up some GTX 460s. :toast:

    Sure thing! I'll have to see what the room temps with the AMD 4P are, then I can let you know :)

    Hello fellow folders! I would like to announce the "World CEP2 Challenge" that our WCG team is organising. If any of you feel like transferring some resources over to WCG, please do so for the period of 6-14 October. I promise I will make sure I donate as much GPU resources to F@H as I can in order to compensate.

    Here is the link to the thread on TPU: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=191430
