    Not that I need any more motivation to crunch, but I just found out that my father in law has pancreatic cancer, and they don't know how bad it is. :( My rigs will be down for about 5 days while I'm on vacation, but when I come back, I'll be crunching harder than ever, and adding at least one more rig.

    Sorry to hear about that..
    F@H is the primary reason my HD4850 is being tortured to death... (6+months at 750Mhz)... a small price to pay to help those with disease... Don't let the thought of him having cancer deter you from having fun on your vacation though... he wouldn't want you to do that... have fun man, and when you get back... put the pedal to the floor!

    Damn Paulie, that sucks. I'll get started tonight with my i7.

    Do I need to overclock it to do more? I'm at 3.2 daily but I'll run it at 3.9 if it helps.

    My thought is to crunch as high as you can while keeping temps reasonable. I try to stay below 65c, which means 4.0 on water for me.

    I wish I had the bling for a Dunnington four-way server but, I don't. :(

    Thanks for the kind words, fellas. It is a good reminder that what we crunch for is REAL and not just a numbers game. What we do here can affect any one of us directly or indirectly at any time. It is good to know that we have a dedicated team here, the best of what TPU has to offer.
