    Yup. It's only down like $15 from last year at this time. One caveat though, it is a bit warmer this summer. Still, crunching costs far less than some think.

    On an average,ADDING five amd Quad core's and a six core ,crunching 24/7.And also including a window mount air conditioner to keep my basement temp in check.I've had an approximate increase of 30% elec usage.Which in my area would be around $35.00 to $40.00 per month.

    Depends on where you are. It was $50+ for me to fold on my 8800GT and PS3, and crunch on the QX9650.

    Well lets see...

    08/09 $88.00 i7 920 and E8500
    09/09 $116.00 i7 920 and E8500
    10/09 $106.00 2 x i7 920's
    11/09 $106.00 2 x i7 920's
    12/09 $165.00 3 x i7 920's
    01/10 $148.00 3 x i7 920's
    02/10 $92.00 3 x i7 920's
    03/10 $180.00 3 x i7 920's
    04/10 $180.00 4 x i7 920's
    05/10 $204.00 5 x i7 920's
    06/10 $168.00 3 x i7 920's
    07/10 $88.00 2 x i7 920's


    Of course the nice part is that I had many i7 920's through the winter so I rarely had to turn the heat on (only when it got into the 0 degress Fahrenheit:)

    Guys I have taken down my i7 rig to start packing it along with the torture rack and all that. hopefully between today and tomorrow I will get the X2 running. THe i7 was not running WCG the last week anyways so actually it'll be a boost to the team, small one. :)

    Sad that you have to let it go. Mine will back on crunching tonite, in two hours from now in fact. It still run a decent 4 GHz.

    I need the money toward more important things right now. I will still have 8 cores at WCG and a GX2 at F@H so I'll still be crunching & folding pretty decently.

    Sounds like a pretty good idea, although I'd consider a GT240 for each rig. My OCed i7 860 does about 16k PPD for folding, although I've heard that with the bigadv client it can do 30k+. Without a real GPU it's just under 200w.
    A GT240 is close to 5k PPD and is like 55 or 60w, so not quite as efficient for PPD/W as an i7 rig, but still nice for PPD/$ ;)
    What's happened? Sorry I'm so out of the loop :eek:

    Finally got my AC fixed. Now I just have to lower my bills a little more, and I can crunch again.

    Even part time crunching on that 980x would be incredible!

    I had the powersupply fail on the P9500 over the weekend... I'll be replacing it today. Hopefully i'll have it crunching before night fall.

    Just an FYI for the crunchers, as I prefer it goes to one of you guys, and I'll give a discount. I'm posting my primary custom loop for sale tonight. It includes an EK HF Supreme block (best block IMO), 655 vario pump, EK Coolstream 240 rad, 2 gentle rad, custom res from Cyberdruid, 1/2 barbs, and about 5 ft. of 1/2 in tubing.

    Anyone ever read some of the papers that explain the project data on WCG.com? The information is way beyond what I can comprehend, but just by looking at the numbers you can see they need all the help they can get.

    Crunch Strong! :rockout:
