    Hey CP, I thought that AMD/ATI video cards would not work folding?

    No, they'll fold, just not as well as Nvidia cards. I think the 5000 series and newer fold decently, a new client was released for them recently. The older ATI cards (like the 4000 series) won't fold as well though.

    I have a 5770 in my HTPC and I was thinking about dl'ing the F@H client but only for the chimp challenge. The room it's in gets too hot for the summer so every little bit of heat counts. Once I feel motivated I'll do a backup and give it a shot.

    Yea I was thinking that the AMD's wouldn't fold, and I am about to get a 5870 so will probably do the same thing. Get the F@H and fold for the Chimp challenge as well.

    LOL, hell, I think I am a member of the TPU F@H team to be honest. :eek:

    Negative sir, I don't think he is coming back. Not sure what happened with what he had told me but he was in some deep crap with his family and school and stuff. I see him posting on Facebook, but usually it's stuff related to school.

    Well why not tell us then? Unless he's holding reservations about letting everyone know what's going on in his life...

    I hope he didn't get in hot water over having so many machines running boinc. And no, I'm not fishing for info here, I'm just saying.

    at least, thats what also killed my output by 50%, as i ran into complications of paying the energy bill... not unrealistic, in my opinion:ohwell:

    That might be a consideration for me too, although with 2 2600k's neither of which are overclocked, I'm hoping it will be manageable and I'll be able to keep this up for the long haul. I have at least 2 rigs running at all times anyway regardless of boinc or no boinc. One is my HTPC so that one crunches on no matter what. My other main rig is an oc'ed 1090t. If things get too bad i would migrate over to the second 2600 and sell both 1090t's for parts. But I don't think it will come to that.

    My main concern is heat dissipation since the 2 rooms with 2 rigs each are heat traps. One is the upper level of a split level ranch the other is my office. The upper level was never meant to exist and doesn'thave proper ventilation - just one vent per room and no return vents. Also, it's much closer to the roof since the attic on this section is just barely a crawl space whereas the rest of the house has a full attic. The office is a similar problem since it only has one vent but it is much, much smaller area and I can use fans to move air around and into the hallway.

    Guys, I'm going to have some downtime later today. I got rid of my CHIV so I'm getting my Gigabyte 790FX back from my g/f today. But I need to buy her a cheap mobo to leave her PC running so I gotta swap boards on her computer first then do the same on mine. So It'll be up and running late today I hope. I'll keep you guys posted. :toast:

    Finished testing my crunchers for F@H bigadv stability, throwing everything back at WCG again before the chimp challenge.

    Best part of the week though will be going for a short 4 day holiday to Barcelona on Thursday. Anybody want me to throw a SB rig under their username for that period?

    I've got my 5770 running fah. It seems stable and doesn't tax the card so I might leave it like that - definitely from now until the chimp challenge finishes.

    Thanks for reminding me to double check F@H CPU stability before the CC starts.

    Enjoy your trip :toast:
