    Thx man! i'll def check it out, have it set to crunch when i dont use my pc, its on 24/7 anyways so why not i thought,

    1 question though, can i fold and crunch on the same pc? the one i'll be getting has a C2d e 5200 and a 8800gtx, the 5200 will be oc'ed to around 3.5.

    You sure can. You can run WCG for crunching and the F@H client for folding :toast:

    That's greatly appreciated.

    I'm plotting some ideas in my head of how to eliminate the heat by crunching from my room. If it works out I'll start folding as well :toast:

    Great news man. We need the extra push for the WCG Team challenges. In the Winter 2010 one we are just getting edged by Broadbandreports Team Discovery. We need to overtake them again.

    I have the a/c blasting right now so it's actually cool in my room. But my power bill punches me in the face, puts me in a headlock, and tortures me till I tap out at the end of the month if I keep the a/c blasting everyday.

    Yeah, well in November, December the weather has been actually nice, not too hot like in Summer 99-102ºF. We had about two weeks of pretty cool weather, like 0-2ºC. But it's gone now. :(


    I'm going to bed guys, take care and I'll catch up on what I miss tomorrow.

    My numbers are going to be WAY down for a few days while I work out some hardware "reorganization". Won't be too long though.
