    I have plenty of gpu's, 3 580's, 3 480's, 2 570's, and 2 gts450. They're all, except the 450's, power hungry cards. My electric bill would be more than the rent on the house I'm living in if I turned all of them on.

    Folding is just not for every body any longer. I still do it in the cold period of year since it kind of substitute the electrical heating I would otherwise use. $20/day is money when you have no income (me atm).

    Yes a big set back for the 4P folders. From one of the comments on the support forum it seems like a money donnor didn't like that fuss it made with the preliminary announced change so they are planing to pull out and hence the result is that the 4P folders (as it happend with the one that invested +$1000/CPU in the past i.e me) have 380 days to re-think their involvement in folding.
    Not bad. I looked at my notes and found that I did 4:14/frame = 96k PPD @ 1267 Mhz (no OC). I got more GPUs then free PCi's/PSU so I will not re-test if my 680 will pick up a 8900. Best of luck with your way to top 10 :)

    LOL, PG is at it again. No worries, as WCG is a easy swap if future SMP does not include QRB. I was already looking at building another 4P this month. Now with the market being flooded with G34-4P's, I know there will be some sweet deals available. I'm gonna wait and see what comes of this.

    With your array of 4ps could you not make a massive 64 core hive and get the bonus?

    His systems already have 48 cores per system. Hives don't work for F@H as far as I know. If they did, I think I/we would have heard about it because it would have been rather cheap to cluster some i7's together.

    I have seen hives put to use folding that's all im saying , but it's only an idea as it is tricky.

    Are you referring to a supercomputer or large computer array?

    Want to give to folding big time? Anyone here still smoke? QUIT!!!! Heard of electronic cigarettes? Want to know if they work? PM me and I'll tell you, and show you how to get set up.
    Sorry guys, but I need to tap into your user base....

    I apologise ,I had replied but clearly something went wrong.

    I Googled a lot of stuff on hive's a while ago, people have succesfully got a small lynux run, set of computers working in a hive(over regular net connections) together as one system and applied it to folding as a single multi core entity, I personally was waiting on several things before having a go myself ie time , money , cheap enough components(8 core cpu's at reasonable money) and a fish tank to put it all in but i will indeed do this at some point soon.

    I believe someone made a hive of rasberry pies that folded(x64 units) but im unsure where i got this last nugget of nonesense from

    also I am finally moveing into my own place at the end of the month so i will be rejoining the folding flock full time agian soon.

    Ecigs suck btw get on the patches, I am:(

    That lasted all of one work unit.

    Pete, ever think of how much money you would have had to spend on your computer if you did not smoke?

    My 480 and 465 are both on ebay gonna lose those points about 52k but if the deal goes thru gonna replace them with a 660ti.Way less power and should do a few more points. Fingers crossed.

    yep. 27.7k to be exact. Bought a 660ti today other deal fell thru but this one kills it. Walked into Best Buy and they had 1 on the shelf. I looked at the box it said 119.95! I grabbed it and now its folding.lol Killer deal. glad no one caught that.

    BRB!:laugh: (there's a BB 3 miles away)

    edit: 660 Ti is basically a 670 GPU on a 660 card. Best value for F@H at this time, IMHO.

    Better PPD/$ than my 4P rigs and you do not have to worry about "end of life"(-bigadv) in another 12 months.

    I'm away from my GPUs but from what I can see in the stats I got something different from my normal 8900s. I get between 28 and 30K per WU and this one gave around 12K. No idea how long it took and if it was a core_17. What kind off PPD do you have and on which GPU (660Ti/680)

    Edit: https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=25753

    So it is a beta unit. I was sure that I didn't had beta flag on any of my three rigs. I think that I just got the base point - 13K.
