    Yeah, but despite that I don't get very good PPD. The 2.4ghz P4 and the 2.0 GHZ P4 Celerons get no more than about 150PPD each, I get about 200PPD on the Pentium M. The quad does about half of my total output (maybe a bit more), but the E6550 is still good for about 400-500PPD.

    Hey team! check out my "Easy WCG_config" thread! http://http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=106370

    It's a batch file I created to update members WCG cc_config.xml file. I've already updated it twice. I've also added different colors for team mates ([Ion] :p)... hehehe It's compatible with x86/x64 versions of XP, Vista, Win7. Also, FordGT90Concept is working on a exe version as well. :rockout:

    Big Thank you to the Beta testers! :respect::respect:

    Not too long ago I brought up the issue I had where Human Proteome Folding would fail on my stock clocked Q9300 and only return errors, but work fine on my E4500. I thought I'd mention an interesting development, which is my new X4 955BE does not have this same issue. It would appear that HPF doesn't have an issue with quad cores in general, but only Intel quads. Can any other AMD users confirm that Human Proteome folding works on their quad / dual? How about any AMD users that get errors from this project?

    Hmm, could do. I just thought it interesting that it failed on Intel quads (which was confirmed by others here) but my AMD quad and Intel Dual were fine with it. Especially considering how many people seem to turn this project off due to the errors it throws them.

    I disabled this project as my i7 and E8500 kept returning errors and had been doing so for a couple months.

    I will be out of commission tomorrow. The electrician is coming to put in a dedicated circuit for my PC workshop, along will a couple of outlets, so all computers will be down until evening.

    Second i7 up and running as of late last night :toast:
    However I did have to shutdown the E8500 rig until I get the GPU I ordered (today or tomorrow hopefully).

    Thanks! The 2.4ghz P4 and Celerons aren't mine, but all the other ones are. The E6550 is on about 14hrs a day, the P4 2.8 maybe 5. I've talked to my friend, and I'm going to be sending him instructions on setting up BOINC on the E4600, so it should be running tonight! :toast::toast:

    Question: For the long term outlook for WCG crunching, should I invest in a P55 or a X58 set? I think 6 and 8 core cpus will be out my budget for a while, but I need to make the decision soon- I have a P55 FTW waiting for me!! :D
