For the guys who wish to use it, I photo-chopped up a joint effort avatar. Thanks goes to the original creator of the avatar (Was this you 123bob?). I am not "taking credit" for that persons work just adding to it if you you would like to use it. :)
h3llb3nd4 did the original workup of the design. I took it and and modified it. I like what you've done with it too.

Just signed up my work computer. Its hidden so IT (my brother) doesn't find it. Hehehe.


I guess I get on that list too? I dunno, no matter to me. I figured might as well, and no way I'm going to make this thing F@H. Little E4500 would puke its innards out.

Powered up a bit tonight for our WCG/F@H effort....

(Note - I'm going to duplicate this post somewhere in the F@H forum.)


In light of Mindweaver's and other folder's commitment to this cooperative effort to max out both of our teams, I have a bit of a power up for the folding capability of my here-to-fore WCG only crunching farm. Kudos to you guys for bringing all the crunching power to our WCG team...:toast: It has been noticed...

These will go on the TPU folding team as soon as I can get them shoved in and set up. I would expect "123bob's" stats at F@H to go up a bit quicker....;):laugh: Four copies of 260-216 overclocked goodness....



Thx to my XS teammate, 4x4n for the suggestion. :toast: I looked at Fry's today and lo and behold, these were on special for $169 each. From this link, it looks like a bargain considering the shipping...

As most of the "older" :) WCG team members know, I crunch a fairly extensive quad farm for XS WCG. That's my home crunching team. I have brought that full power here twice. (Second only to Rammie, but what can I say, that dude's crazy....:laugh: Actually, I'm skipping i7/Gainstown and waiting for 32nm...;)) The first time was to say thanks for hosting us when XS went down for a bit.

The second time was to help push us over the top with the 1 million PPD criteria that allowed us to get this subforum. When I left, I kept one good quad on the TPU team under "123bob_TPU". My main farm is still under "123bob" for Xtreme.

I believe in this team. That's why I left a quad. I had suggested that some trade between the F@H and WCG teams would be beneficial for all of us, and more importantly, for humanity... You guys took that, ran with it, and made it yours. KUDOS to all, WCG and F@H!!

With the growth of this cooperative effort, we have folks, like Mindweaver, sticking everything they have on WCG. I appreciate that. What it did was make me realize that my farm was not living up to it's possible potential. When I crunch, I could give a shizz about GPUs. I'm running $3 Ebay Virge cards, made in 1995. All of those machines have 2 PCIe x16 slots sitting empty on the mobos....:eek: For $169 each slot, that's what I call a cheap upgrade to the farm. I have lots more GPU space that I could add to the farm. We'll see how these run, and how the price per production works out on these first four.

As a farmer, I looked ahead and tried to buy PSUs wisely. Most of the farm has 750 watt Silverstone PSUs that have been rock solid. Of course, I didn't need that capacity for the job at hand. I just knew there was a reason to spend the extra 20 bucks and go bigger on a building block like a PSU....(Lesson here, think strategically when you build crunchers or folders...)

So, there you have it. Time to quit typing and start installing!!

My best to you, all crunchers and folders out there,
Bob

Very nice upgrade Bob :)
Those 260's are a great PPD/price upgrade, nice deal you got there.Even run stock you should see ~6000PPD but you can always OC them for a bigger PPD.

Thanks for your contribution to the team.

EDIT: I was just thinking and laughing...this will ruffle some members feathers and have them looking over their shoulder :)

Oh my freaking god he's doing this just to get at me! :p


Nah seriously 123bob, good to see you aboard and going overboard like a few of us do. This might however help perforate my wallet though as I will be driven to finish my farm sooner. Well, its either this or a girlfriend and so far Folding hasn't tried to change me into something I'm not already. Say, is it better tax wise to be married to folding? Do you get some sort of break?

No tax break, but the farm doesn't have to go shopping quite as often...and my farm likes me just the way I am....:laugh:

Very nice Bob. :toast: Now send a couple of those my way. :D
Isn't there a Fry's up your way? I'd hurry though, I'll bet they will sell these out quick. :laugh: Thx again for suggesting them. :toast:

whats the likelyhood of me getting folding@home running well on my 2900xt? its a much more powerfull beast than the 8600gts was [sold it to buy my tuniq tower 120 that should be delivered today]

having a lot of issues with it, sometimes it starts folding and fails right away, sometimes it doesn't seem to do anything at all...

EDIT: never mind, figured out that only certain work units mess it up, i wonder if there is any way to avoid them
