    I believe that team TPU would gladly accept the challenge.
    However, official confirmation will have to be made by our captain (CP) or senior members..

    Thanks for the invite! I hope you will get the official confirmation soon (when the concerned members see this thread)
    Chevalr1c and Daimus say thanks.

    Indeed, PM Chicken Patty if you want to put our team on the list of participants. You should see how well we did in last week's HCC Challenge. :)

    No need to be helping the team if it is in a team challenge, animal007uk. The team will then simply be represented by less participants (i.e. individual crunchers).

    Our current challenge is more of a give 110% or more, no holds barred, all in, give prizes/add new members commitment.

    In my case, if we were to participate I would give my standard 100% commitment due to this one being so close to the current challenge. We will still make a decent showing in this challenge even if we just work as a Team as we would any other day of the year.

    My $0.02

    However, if our Captain asks us for a little more- I will give whatever extra I can ;)

    Count me in! I'll throw everything I have at the contest at least until the 21st--then I'll probably have to shut down most of my farm for Thanksgiving Break.

    What do we need to set up for the challenge? If I read it right this is for all projects, correct?

    Indeed, all WCG projects. Although it is okay to limit your selection if you wish (but that would be pointless).

    If you have multiple rigs you can set the ones with the preferred gpu's for the HCC gpu wu's and create a maximum output/all projects profile for the others ;)

    I'm running a max output profile on the Opty and the 980X atm and HCC only (w/o the app_info tweak) on all of the others. Switched to this a few days ago and it boosted the output on those two rigs by about 25% :toast:

    Will switch all of the other rigs except the ones with the 7870 and 6870 in them over to the max profile after the HCC challenge ends....

    WCG seems to decide how to setup the projects- working fine for me so far (may break thru 100k today)

    That's kinda what I was thinking: leave the GPU WU's running hard for the most points :pimp:

    My understanding is that that Max Output profile just sets it to run all of the time at max speed. Which is what I have it configured to do anyways :p

    I'll still play with it though to see what I can get :)
