    @vulkan

    I would suggest posting in the F@H team thread, not sure why it's not showing

    @binary

    Which client is that, link?

    Well, the systray client (GUI client that uses more CPU resources) is here.
    The console (command line) client is here.
    FAH GPU Tracker is also nice. I believe it's just the console client with a simple GUI that doesn't use much resources. You can find it here.
    (Note that those links may direct you to 32-bit clients. You can find all the available options here and here)

    Would it hurt my crunching if i fold my GTX 260 while I crunch the I7 920?

    Somewhat but not a ton, as long as you use the console client or F@h GPU Tracker.

    Yes, there is a SMP (Symmetric Multi Processor I think) client that can run 32 or 64 bit. Look on this page.

    Brandon, it'll drop PPD a bit, but not a whole bunch. Worth it, what you lose in WCG you gain much more in folding. So that means more research getting done. :toast:

    Sorry .... I meant x64 bit for WCG/BOINC ..... If I run Folding@Home on the CPU´s along with WCG/BOINC I think there will be too much tinkering on the CPU power....

    WCG/BOINC on the CPU`s
    Folding@Home on the GPU ..... makes most sense IMO ..... I could be wrong tho....

    Oh, okay, sorry for the misinterpretation. Yes, I agree, that makes the most sense. You definitely want to use the 64-bit BOINC client, it will increase your PPD. Download it here.

    Consider it bro, would be nice if you can join the Folding team as well, just with the help they are giving us it should be enough to at least contribute a bit for the Chimp Challenge. :toast:

    I forgot to mention it might take an update or two to show. But guess that doesn't matter anymore. :toast:

    It has been quiet. I'm doing a few small giveaways (just finished the 3DMark11 one), but a bigger contest would be great; could even help us carry some momentum into the F@H team and the upcoming ChimpChallenge.

    Yea i agree we got a good turnout when we did the system give away last year think it's about time and maybe should prob do at least one a quarter... 4x a year maybe, people get bored me included, just need some kind of spark to get old members going and new one's joining

    I've been trying to plan something for a while now, but I need to build a rig to do so and I just haven't been able to. I was actually going to provide the whole running rig. But shit just got real tough for me recently. :(

    well i don't think you need to provide the whole thing... Maybe you should ask for Pm's and list needed items for the giveaway that way it'll be easier for you? I'm interested in providing something

    I agree 100% with Gary here CP. Hell, lets get a thread started for the build. That would also give members a chance to help out and feel like they are a part of the build/giveaway!

    I was just holding it off because I had no use for the rig once I had the new build going, but I guess it's at the point where I should start asking or it won't happen anytime soon.

    Well right now we got the chimp challenge coming up and I think it's just going to be better till that's done so that folders are back to folding and crunchers are back to crunching and then we can have the contest with everyone on board, what do you think?

    Just signed up for WCG on Saturday and have only managed to get a few k.

    Have had a quick search but do some project yield more points than others? Team verage is 580/wu and mine is 371, okay only done 4 wu so far.

    On a side note; If anyone would like ot help out the Milkyway@home effort on your ATI card then please do as we could really do with some help.

    Well ive decided to sell some of my leftover parts including my GTX 260 so as of now i will only be crunching the I7 920 at 4GHz 24/7 like i have been.

    The reason for the sale is i need more car parts for my eclipse build (I KNOW CP UNDERSTANDS LOL)

    WU's can vary considerably in the amount of cpu time required so don't try to compare yourself to the team average until you've done at least a few hundred wu's from a variety of projects on WCG.

    But fyi, the help conquer cancer project has the shortest wu's as far as anyone can tell so if you want to bump up your results per day, that would be the project to go with.
