That was only partly (25 %) due to my WU.

One more same size at the next update.
Cool! :cool:
I'll put another 1000 points probably in the next update.... :eek:

Next year I'll prepare "myself" to the next chimp... I'll just need some help fromTPU of course as I live in Brazil... :laugh:
I'm thinking about buying one or two rig from you guys to fold for the contest then selling it here after it ends... :)

You can also just ask some friends if they'd be willing to have you run it on their rigs for the CC. It's only 10 days. Buying and selling rigs probably wouldn't be that efficient. Better to just buy one dedicated folder that you leave running all year.

Well, my friends actually aren't that crazy about computers... most of them have notebooks.... only one guy I know likes desktop, but he won't leave it on to fold for 10 days.... even because it's just a E2200 with 7950gt....
Most of my friends laugh on me about being part of this contest... :laugh:
Anyway... hardware here in Brazil is way more expensive than in the US.... in the end if I'm lucky and escape from taxing (import duties is 60% here) I can make a nice profit.... although a gear that put a lot of PPD would be just a pain to sell here.... but If I do have some spare money, I could do that for sure...

Ah, I see. Well, I hope you can find a way to get cheap computer parts... wonder how pricey Newegg shipping is to Brazil? That would probably let you evade the taxes.

They don't ship to Brazil.
Amazon ships but isn't really worth it..... most of companies that sell from there to Brazil won't declare a different price on parts and like amazon who is willing to Sell will ask for DHL or Fedex shipping..... which isn't less than $125.00 to ship something very light...
So lets day I want a i7-2600k from Amazon.....
$300.00 for the cpu.... around $125.00 for shipping. $425.00 + 60% import tax... (more 18% over that from another tax for using a service from courrier like DHL)....
Let's see.... total.. $802.4 for a single i7-2600k if I were to do everything by the book.
Ebay can be a better choice, but it's hard to find someone willing to sell to Brazil with a lower cost shipping and declaring a lower price.....
I usually rely on some friends I made over TPU to help me getting my stuff... if it weren't for them I would still be with my A64-3000 from 2006.... LoL.... serious it probably would be something like a E2180 with a geforce 8600.... :toast:

I'm only staying ½ day in São Paulo I think and then of to some place close to Brasillia. Got a spare i920 and some nice Mushkin (7-8-7-20). Damn high prices you have there. Better take a plane to US and do some serious shopping.

The previous WU was good and was uploaed just around the hour so it must have been included in the 1.13 Chimp point update. My two rigs are pretty much identical hardware- and software wise (cloned disk) so some times I get the same WU twice and then the deadline for bonus could be passed. Just checked my logs and that was not the case this time.

And if I toldl you that there are some people that really do that....? :laugh:
Travel agencies sell a shopping tour package... a week in Miami just to buy stuff.... well... after that it is just to pray to the custom guy be nice to you when you arrive at Brazil's airport... (quota is only $500.00 for international travel in 3 months duties free)... 60% over declared parts and 100% over non declared parts in case your luggage is opened to be checked. Well this happens to Brazilians, to foreigns there isn't this kind of issue.

How does the bonus system works in folding ? :confused:
I thought you only made the points showed for the WU in the tracker.

Well, to me it seems your CPU should not be taking that long to finish the WU, but the GPU looks fine. DAC, I doubt your Atom puts out 700PPD, my C2D E8500 doesn't do that much.

Maybe the estimated time is just off. Make sure you set your environmental variables as detailed at the start of this thread.

try this from the first page....

6) For those of you Folding on Radeon HD2xxx-HD4xxx, please add the following Environmental Variables to your system. It will increase the Folding client's PPD, and reduce the load on your CPU thereby increasing the PPD for the CPU client. These won't blow your computer up.
Where:
XP: Computer=>Properties=>Advanced=>Environmental Variables
Win7: Computer=>Properties=>Advanced System Settings=>Environmental Variables
What:
BROOK_YIELD 2
CAL_NO_FLUSH 1
CAL_PRE_FLUSH 1
FLUSH_INTERVAL 128
Maybe this could help you, I don't know.... I have a HD4850 running and before doing this, my i5 wouldn't put anything out....
Also, try to fold SMP only, then GPU only.... and check which one gives you a higher score, my guess is that you might do better with smp only or gpu only....

Well, to me it seems your CPU should not be taking that long to finish the WU, but the GPU looks fine. DAC, I doubt your Atom puts out 700PPD, my C2D E8500 doesn't do that much.
Maybe your OS needs a fresh install..... because at work (using ACAD), on a E7400 my PPD is around 1300, when idling it's around 1600.
SS for proof.

Oh, I didn't realize that was a hyperthreaded Atom, that would probably make the difference. I don't know why my PPD is so low, I set all my variables as described, maybe my computer is just running too much crap. :(
