    I think that is super optimizing ;) but we all do that. I have a laptop open next to my work PC to take care of my video ect.

    I think if you can manage to force 4-core turbo and assign WCG to the 4th thread and then assign F@H to the 1st and 2nd cores you might. I think it might have a worse effect though. (10% usage on my 870 decreased my 770s ppd by about 5k.)

    Is there another shortage on 13000 jobs?

    I've been running 9406's for days. With the occasional 9408(Which has somewhat worse PPD) showing up.

    This place is a good starting point to investigate server status http://fah-web.stanford.edu/pybeta/serverstat.html
    The 1300x sever is 140.163.4.231 (#110). Full and Accepting means all is fine.

    Just wanted to check a rumor. No folding on Radeon HD 5000 series cards at this time?

    If I won the lottery: http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/sys/4443216954.html
    That's only $250 per GPU. According to w1zzard, these draw a little over 310 watts. A pair of these at 125K PPD/GPU is 500,000 PPD for less than 700 watts. That's 4P territory.
    But, then there's the coil whine to deal with.

    @xvi did you forget your passkey on (I assume) another system?

    While there is a "new" system fired up, it should have the key. It's done work before, but not for a while. Guessing I just need to get a few results in before I get the bonuses? I'll double-check when I get home.

    Bonuses are for the user, not the machine. Having to use the passkey is only recent.

    Ah ha. I did pretty much just fire up the old client and let it run. Low and behold, no passkey. Thanks for catching that!

    Let it run at stock speeds and see if it completes work units Norton. If it does go up slow on overclocks. I ran my 7950s at stock for a few days then slowly overclocked. Found one that easily does 1200 core while the other 1050 max. Same cards and they do like being cool but you are on water so that shouldnt be a problem. Also found they dont like stock voltage both are undervolted.

    Don't know how to sign up for the challenge, oh well. My server is failing I think, probably 1 more month of folding left in it, so I'm just going to let it go out under CamelJock.......

    I will be starting to fold finally sometime after the WCG challenge ends. I am not sure what hardware I will be using yet, too many things changing then to know now. I have some initial questions.

    How well do 750ti's crunch now that they have been out awhile? In crypto mining they are almost as fast as a stock clocked 7850, wondering if that compares.
    The cpu does not need much power. I was thinking I would use my celeron g1620 because the cpu itself only uses 7watts.

    Keep an eye on this thread but it looks like there is still no fix for the 750's
