    Welcome to the Team!!! I got 2 more GPU's coming online Friday night. Saturday shall be a day of reckoning. We will be a 100k+ ppd team soon.:toast:

    Umm..I would be interested. What are you gettin to replace it?

    Snuif09, what team are you folding for? You show no activity for TPU since 06-20-08. Did you change your folding name?

    No Worries ThoughtDisorder, you're contributing and that's all that matters. You're doing great, just keep plugging away if ya can :rockout:

    Buck Nasty, you are now the TPU extreme folder :) [​IMG]

    @Thoughtdisorder, even though you feel it's measly, your work unit could be the one that offers the insight into curing a disease. We all look at the points, but the work is what's important. Thanks for contributing and representing for TPU!:toast:

    @Skitzo
    , thanks for the pics! I have built my last case for folding. It's gonna be nakedness from here on out:eek:. I am already looking into shelving that i can weld a small bar to so i can mount PCI cards. Sort of like a test bench, just not as fancy. I'm also looking for an MSI P6N Diamond/MSI K9A2 Diamond for a 4gpu rig. Found some open boxes on Newegg. Just waiting for a few more funds, as this is getting expensive:laugh:! Thanks for your efforts and the posting of scores on this thread. I hope more folders follow your example and "take it up a notch" with folding/involvement with this thread.

    Thanks for the kind words Buck Nasty :respect: --- man I really like that name lol

    Your right about the points, they are there so we can casually compare and compete. It's incentive for those with a strong competitive nature to push each other ... it really doesn't mean anything cause at the end of the day we don't know what our pc's worked out, just that they did and it might be useful. Anything that can be used as a tool to get people involed is a good thing, just gotta keep things in perspective.
    Seems like a fantastic way to draw in "benching addicts"

    I'm curious Buck Nasty, thought you were steering away from multi gpu platforms?



    Is graphics acceleration used while folding? I'm wondering when a linux gpu version will be available... that would make it very easy to throw together an inexpensive yet effective folding rig :rockout:


    it's kind funny :laugh:, I've sold the am2 hardware 3 times and the forth is on going :laugh: People seem to want to make payments so I tell them ... call me when ya got the cash, till then it's studying how influenza virus recognizes and infects cells and simulating a molecule known to be a mutant form of the villin headpiece that has been reported to have a conformational relaxation rate of less than 1 per microsecond. :D

    This isn't a very effective sales technique so I'm guessing I don't really wanna sell the hardware :ohwell:

    This is my all purpose machine. She'll be getting a major overhaul on Mon/Tues when I get the I/O shield for the P35 Neo Combo board I bought; then it'll be that and an E2180.

    I will admit, I was a bit apprehensive about optimizing 4 cards on one board. After the 2x dual card rigs, I am more comfortable and see one in my near future. Between the cost savings(1x MoBo/Ram/OS/Hard Drive)and the power saving(1x power supply), it's a no brainer to go that direction.


    It has to be used. Look at the amount of calculations and the heat created. Renderings are being created, just not diplayed. I will welcome a Linux based client, cause the OS's are killin' my wallet:laugh:

    Obviously you are quoting someone/something or you would have a incredible understanding of the simulations taking place in our rigs...:roll: Who needs a rig when you can do the simulations in your head and phone the results to Dr. Pande.:D Needless to say, you get props for throwin' that out there.

    Building rigs just to fold can get expensive in a hurry, no brainer it is.
    the am2 hardware i have on the table stays nice and cool, surprizingly the stock cooler is quiet outside of a case.

    I havn't been playing with linux very long, but I think I remember reading that it doesn't use graphics acceleration. So if this is correct and the gpu client uses graphics acceleration...

    lol, those are descriptions from project summarys :)
    I never get the "conformational relaxation rate of less than 1 per microsecond" right but I figured I'm posting here so I better get it right and I checked.

    I look up the projects my machines are working on out of curiosity.

    FAH Projects Summary Page

    I wouldn't say I fully understand what the cores are doing, but the idea doesn't seem to difficult to wrap the head around.

    I'll pick up the slack. I have another dual GPU rig coming online next week. This will be my 4th 24/7 GPU rig and I am feeling the heat:eek:! I wanted this build to be the 4x GPU, but my son requested a Phemon Spider Rig and we built it last week. He has watched me build 2 rigs for folding, so this was the right thing to do. Plus, I will enslave it to fold whenever possible;) So, I'm a little tapped out financially and it's time to use the leftover parts around here. This next rig will be powered by the "World Class" Athlon 64 3500+ clocked at a blistering 2.7ghz. MoBo duties are handled by a Foxconn s-939 sli board running 184pin DDR:p. Should be enough to feed the 2x ASUS 9600GSO's with power coming from an Antec 80+ 400w PSU. I should be peaking around 35,000 PPD combined. I now have to run an extension cord from another room because I am exceeding the ampere rating for this room:banghead:.

    P.S. Does anyone have spare PCI-E slots with ample power to host another GPU. I am thinking of starting a program to fill these empty slots. Let me know...

    Funny you say that. I have a rig(1-8800GTS + 1-SMP=6500PPD) that is a prime candidate for a PPD loan program. I would fold under the name of a new member that has low PPD. This would bring a little attention to this person and "spread the fun" of folding to someone who normally would not be recognized. The points would still go to the team, which is what really matters. We could even nominate members for use of multiple rigs of mine for a given time frame :)eek:Did I just say that?). I just want everyone to have a good time and make TPU f@h the best it can be.:toast:

    P.S. p_o_s_pc, your request is granted. Just watch your points...

    well, sorry peeps, my contributions will be taking a hit for a lil bit :(

    I'm down to my secondary rig for folding ...
    With my oc, I folded my c2d rig into the ground.
    I'm pretty sure it's the mobo, so I'll prolly start with that when I get a chance.

    It runs but is unstable even with factory clocks and increased voltages ... it's done for now.
    I'm now observing a very brief moment of silence for my currently departing gigafolded mobo ... k done :)

    This would be my first oc kill so I won't complain
    I needed an excuse to get a mobo with a second slot to run my 8600 for physics anyways lol

    keep up the good work and try not to fold anything into the ground like me...

    I think i folded my PSU and my mobo to the ground but ohwell need a reason to upgrade just don't know if i want Intel or AMD again or just wait and try to save money to see what AMD and Intel have out soon... I would like to get a X4 FX if they really do run 4ghz stock speed



    Thanks again buck for folding for me and keeping me in the game. :toast:
