**UPDATE** - Kreij Memorial Summer Giveaway

OK let's start the roll out for planning this project.....

Here are my thoughts on it:

We choose a hardware upgrade to fund and give away that is desired by most of us yet we often need to be realistic due to limited budgets and get something a little less than what we would really want. The upgrade chosen should be compatible with just about any setup....
Suggestions:
- An SSD larger than 256GB
- A 2x8GB or larger memory kit
- A premium PSU (750w or higher- 80+ Gold minimum)
- A large external storage drive (4TB or higher)
etc.....

We set the format for the giveaway and proceed. Items to discuss:
- Eligibility
- Giveaway format
- Shipping considerations/area definition
- Time limits
- etc..

@xvi - your thoughts? ;)
Let's hear your feedback and ideas folks! :lovetpu:

:s BOINC doesn't require a lot of memory, a large HDD, nor a large SSD. Big PSU is only required if you're doing GPU WUs too:
-I've got 8 GB in my server and it is presently only using 2.5 GB which includes a lot of non-WCG stuff (e.g. Terraria server and a MySQL database) and Server 2012 R2.
-A 240 GB SSD should be more than enough.
-I'd shoot for a 400-500w platinum power supply. Even that is overkill if using integrated GPU. I think platinum should be a must because whomever gets the hardware has to foot the electric bill and anything to reduce that is a good thing.
-Don't know why anyone would even want a 4TB external HDD.


But...I'm high and know nothing about this conversation so...don't mind me. :toast:

Anywhere/Everywhere- the nature of the donation(s) usually make a good guide. See the OP for an idea of where we've sent stuff and who donated :)

Thanks for the input! SSD's are nice since they're generally pretty easy to ship and I agree, both would make a really nice upgrade

Giveaway's are for any TPU forum member and prizes don't have to be used for crunching/folding*

*
Crunching/folding is 100% optional- main goal of the prizes is to enjoy them ;) That said, many have joined up and have contributed- some even do so anonomously using the Kreij memorial crunching/folding accounts we've setup. :toast::

Yeah, was thinking those specs were better than what I've got on my main rigs. Not saying that prize PCs shouldn't be awesome, of course.

24/7 Since receiving this Folding beauty !!!

Here are my thoughts on it:

Just 2 cent's but there may be more member's running older tech similar to my setup, ie.... older CPU and power drinking GPU's :pimp:
and from what I've seen with either the 5970, or this 7950, they eat up a lot of amperage and iirc AIDA put me close to pulling 700w, BUT that could be off since it's not hardware specific.
I do note that Gpuz is shown pulling aprox 50-60A with either GPU.............

Best of all TPU_remembers-Kreij is up under 4k, now ranking in 3960 place :rockout::clap:

@xvi - your thoughts? ;)
I must have been half asleep when I first read the post. I thought we were talking about a full PC. Didn't even notice the tag!

Nice PSU would be what I'd lean towards. Often forgotten/skimped on and a nice Platinum rated PSU should, I think, bring a bump in efficiency and get a lot of stable power that will support even more crunching/folding (and also bigger, badder, and more in number GPUs for games and things).

I uh wanted to contribute a little from my CPU collection but it looks like you're all past using old hardware now and no one has a suitable board to chip in anyway. A Q8200 is running in my fileserver and a i5-650 is lying around, so I can pop in an E5200 for the server. But no board and I don't think you guys are interested anymore.

My 280X under G10/X31 folds big numbers for what it is but I stopped because the electricity bill got me a bit disillusioned in what folding can do for us all...but with what's been going recently in my family i'm really tempted to start it up again...

if anyone would like me to chip in either the Q8200 or 650, I can likely oblige but someone's going to have to point me thru how to send it out

Official Entry for the F@H Card

I've been looking for a 780ti for a while as an upgrade to my 680. It's been a minute since my last F@H WU (680s aren't too efficient now) but I would love to set a 780ti loose on some weather permitting.

People who know me here know that I'm a huge proponent of 'Paying it Forward' and should I win I would be putting my 4GB GTX 680 w/ EK FC block and backplate into the next giveaway along with a Swiftech H220X expandable AIO.

Good luck to everyone and thanks to @the54thvoid for the donation and @Norton for coordinating and dealing with the logistics of the giveaway.

For the general TPU card

I've been looking for a FC block + card for a very long time. Having a GTX 780 Ti would be an absolutely awesome addition to my rigs. I am not currently a folder because I am looking to cut back on the noise and heat production in my room, but that's only because it's summer and I'm still here. I'm going off to school halfway across the world in September, and here are my thoughts.

1. R7 265 stays with the SG08 rig because that's the one that's coming with me, halfway across the world.

2. R9 280X finally gets relieved of duty...in my parents' rig. It's the one rocking the Kraken X31 and self-designed, horribly drawn Sharpie-drawn NZXT G10. I used to fold for EVGA & LTT; this thing rakes in good points (130K - 140K PPD). It starts folding 24/7 because it's going in with the C2Q server, out of sight so my parents can't go and shut it down. Regardless of the outcome of this competition, next week I will be getting a CM N200 and the Arc Mini R2 will be relegated to the C2Q rig, so it will be ready to accept the 280X whenever. :D

3. GTX 780 Ti gets a little test period for the first 2 weeks to a month, then gets right into folding. Like the 280X, it's still here in Vancouver so I can't get at it for gaming :p. It gets some time, on and off, because this one is confined to my parents' rig. I have an extra i5-650 + P55 board lying around that can accommodate it too.

Good luck to everyone participating. A reminder to everyone that my Q8200 and i5-650 (for free) are still up for grabs, regardless of whether I win or not (as long as it's used in a giveaway / you have a plan for them to fold or support a folding rig). I'll find a way to cope and keep folding in the absence of those two if I do happen to win. We remember Kreij, but let us not forget the fact that almost everyone in the western world knows someone who has been touched by the cold, deathly hands of cancer. My grandmother is struggling with late-stage renal cancer right now, and I hope that Kreij (as well as OCN's Syrillian) will continue to inspire us in hopes that one day, no more lives will be claimed by this disease.


In response to the revised guidelines for entering...I "need" this extra horsepower because I'd like to see how well GK110 does compute, and also so I can have a predominantly Radeon collection, all while being able to tell Nvidia to suck it when its Gameworks and TWIMTBP would otherwise prevent me from getting good frame rates (Borderlands 2).

Good luck all. I've asked Norton to modify the 'non' folding card rules to allow karma to kick in. My only selfish caveat is that if you've been frequently insensitive and/or rude in the forums (outside of friendly banter) you don't get the card. I have ethics...

I can always vet the applicants :D I am not in for this awesome giveaway as I have just upgraded my card but once again, thanks for the generosity, keep up the good work!

I'll go for the TPU card. I would update an ole HD5850 and will most likely end up folding with it anyhow. LOL

And naturally the 5850 will be given to anyone whom wants it. :peace: Something to note; the HD5850 in retail boxed and came from one of the great give away's here. :respect:

@the54thvoid, thanks for the amazing prizes, @Norton, thanks(as usual) for keeping this going and organizing these giveaways.
Void, that's great that you're willing to give these up for the cause, but what are you going to do for GPU(s) now?

Not entering, but wanted to say thanks.
