    thank god I passed on that offer :laugh:

    when I was trying to register last year it said that there were no new members get accepted at the time or something, then once I did get the link, it took forever to get activated. But hey, it did happen.

    man, I just looked in my rearview mirror and I see something approaching really quickly. Mind weaver is about to rip my wig off in the team standings :laugh:


    My rig has been putting out poor performance lately. Been trying different ram settings so been on and off. last couple of days I have not been able to put out more than like 1.5k points. Today on one update I had 1.6k and I got home to find my computer off. Lets just say I thought my car was going to fly off the highway on the way from work. Very heavy rain and winds today. Power went out :(

    In my case it's a little Blue Bird! Over on the folding side he's been a real Pacman and has already chewed me up and will leave me in his dust.:cry: But here on the crunching side I still have time to put up a defense.:D

    I could sure use another Core 2 Quad!;)

    Alright, well my rig has been down the last 2 days due to my parents worrying about it catching fire lol But nonetheless, it is back up and folding/crunching 24/7 since I'm practically going to be home
    all the time now to watch it.

    lol yeah, mine is all air, and it does get rather hot so I have to use another fan to circulate the air a lot more
    and she is afraid that will catch fire too lol. I even told her, I was like, "If it does catch fire, it will be because of science!"
    She didn't seem to care...:shadedshu

    Hey all, just purchased a rig from Paulieg, not sure when it's going to be here.

    It's an I7 setup, just curious about power draw vs a q6600. He's apparently got it to 4.0, I'm thinking will go less as I read in the i7 post it jumps immensely over 3.6?

    I7 owners, true? Roomie raise rent $20 a month and I'm thinking with my current setup that'll suck that much off the power bill but I don't want to make him pay too badly. :laugh:

    Then again, raise my rent when I'm paying your house payment...:mad:

    Maybe I'll buy a 2nd video card and run both. :laugh:
