Not actually sure Buck, some used alternate names, some came back when the tesla guy started pumping out ppd. I stuck it out because I wanted that card for TPU! Now we've gotta go pass those guys, lots of work ahead!

I believe it's just a random drawing of the active participants, not counting points. I think it'll be announced March 3.
Edit: could take upto 8 weeks to receive the prize however.

Wish you ALL THE LUCK :D


I have 6 rigs in total. Four of them are Quad 8800GS/9600GSO rigs. I have a dual 8800GTS 512 rig and lastly a dual 9800GTX+ rig(my main rig). Pulling juice from 2 addt'l rooms with 12/3 extension cords. This folding thing can be detrimental to the addictive type personality:laugh:. I know mmaakk has several rigs running also. He should post up his farm cause' I know it just got a new addition.;)
Folding is my volunteer work. Lots of people help kids or old people, I'm not really good with it. So, I do try my best squeezing my rigs folding. :toast:

Lately I had several mods with my folding rigs.

Used to be like this:



Lots of rigs (7~8 total), lots of ATI cards spread around and inefficient SMP CPUs.

So... after I got my latest Elec. bill.............:eek::eek:


I stopped being lazy for a moment and my brain kind of reacted well. :eek:



The result, as you can see above - pay attention @ both pics total PPD, is a new total of 4 Rigs, very efficient in GPU and SMP folding! :toast:

Please, tell me what you think about. :rolleyes:

how comes you kept the single 3870 when the single 4850 outperforms it?

although nicely slimmed down!

Oh, the p45 boards o/c real well. Should be a walk in the park for your E8600.

@mmaakk, you have inspired me. I am going to merge rigs also. Let's see, I'm gonna pick up another K9A2 Platinum and run my 2x 9800GTX+ with 2x 8800GTS 512mb. I wonder if my Corsair 750TX can handle those four cards together. I also have to figure a way to keep them cool. That will free up my main rig for like maybe....a GTX 260:rolleyes: Oh, I'm liking this.

Thanks Buck.

About the merging...

Aren't you lowering the PPD of the 9800, mixing with the 8800?

They are both 128sp so should not be too big of a loss. If their is any loss, it will be offset by the elec bill savings that I hope to get.

Cool. :cool:

I always looked @ 9800GTX+ as a way superior card compared with the 8800GTS G92.

How's the PPD comparison with the two :confused:

The cards fold faster on my P45 board than they do on my 780G board.
Here is my best average with 384pt WU.

8800GTS 512mb - 5820 PPD avg
9800GTX+ - 6072 PPD avg

Got my Kill-A-Watt P3 meter and it shows the 9800GTX+ to use 55watts when folding. I should have no problem running all 4 cards off the Corsair 750TX.:rockout:

on a 353pt WU, you should get 2500-3000 PPD with a 9600GT. What are the clocks?

Usually when folding I've got it OC'ed to 1925MHz for the shaders and everything else at stock.
Its never been this slow before, and I've tried running it at stock as well.
When I ran GPU-Z to see the core temp, it was running hot for a while then dropped down to much lower temps, and just stayed there. I assume it wasn't doing any work.

Your CPU and GPU clients are crowing each other. Put the GPU on Core 0 and the SMP on Core 1. Try that and watch for a PPD increase from the GPU.

Well the regrease job dropped my folding temp from 80 to 74c, so that's nice. But now I've got to get new thermal pads.. one of my vrms is cooking. My 9800gtx eue'd for no apparent reason, dropped clocks on it, deleted work cache, it's folding away happily again. Why do my cards have to be such a pain heheh!
Edit: sorry guys, this piece of **** is really giving me problems, the one vrm is overheating on me bad, can't fold tonite, have to take it apart again tomorrow when I'm more calm! Starting to cost me a small fortune in as5......
