Damn I hate how little time I have ATM because I want to get these things installed and get folding!
Well if you have time to post those on TPU then you have time to start putting the rig together! Comon man we need to see some points for it!
ATM I split my PPD between 3 teams (roughly 75k ppd) 1 is here, 1 is EVGA (the hardware belongs to a family friend who can't afford to pay the electric bill when he runs it, and my internet is better for the FTP he hosts on it) and a team for my local lan group/clan (which was founded in tribute to a member that died of cancer).
But TPU will see my PPD growing soon.
Wow, didn't know the 285 was that much better....
I should have my folding badge back by the morning, told you I'd come for my 5 mil!
Well, not much but as a Christmas present for all of the F@H and WCG Team I got my 3rd rig running for you guys today! Back online.
MERRY CHRISTMAS FELLAS, AND HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE AS WELL.
Merry Christmas all. And thanks to all who have helped me. It's this time of year when you learn to really appreciate things. I'm slowly getting back to folding, it will take some time, but as I've said in the past, not gonna stop!

Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year.
I don't understand a lot about PSUs (rails, amps etc. fly over my head). So my question is:
My folding/crunching rig is getting this 750W PCP&C PSU
PC Power and Cooling S75CF 750W EPS12V SLI Certifi...
Now, i'm sure its adequate for 2 470s and a 8800, but later should I decide add another 470 to my stable, will this PSU handle that? Note that it has only 4 PCI-E 6pin connectors, so the third card would be using molex adapters.
Other specs are a Q6600, 3 x 1gb DDR2, 1 HDD, and the usual. The Q6600 will be OC'ed as far as it goes.
2 470s might be pushing it a bit hard
i would go for a 1000-1200w if you want more than 2 470s
I run 2 470's and an i7 on an Zalaman 850 watt PSU, non OC'd CPU, but the GPU's are OC'd, and they do fine.
Not sure I'd go more than 2 gtx285s, which I'm getting, on a single silverstone 850. It'll do 900watts+, but why stess it? If you're going to run 470s or better in sli, get a bigger psu.
eh yeah, i just said if he wants to run more than 2 of those he wants something bigger
and a 750w is to push it a bit
Yep a 750 watt will be pushing it for that much hardware. I have the same PSU with 2 460's and an i7 870 OC. It handles all of that fine so far.
gotta start somewhere
I use to have several local computer stores to select from but not any more. I usually have to buy online but my searches came with Best Buy twice when I needed a PSU. I was able to get this Thermaltake - 850-Watt TR2 RX Power Supply - Black when it was on sale for $109.99 as it is now.
Better than 0.
It happened too late for today's stats but I'll have it tomorrow.
oh...hmm. this would mean I'd have to buy a bigger PSu...which means more $$$..sigh. I'm gonna try with the 750. if it doesn't make do, I'll see if I can sell it for a good price. if not, i'll add a 500W PSU to power some of the components.
I remember running a 2 gtx470's in an OCd i7 before, can't remember if it was the corsair or the antec one.
Let me know if you upgrade your psu. When I get my 2nd 285, I'll be looking to power a separate folding box. I have a partner in the states who would take shipment. If you do, let me know please.
Will do, though unless I get a good deal on a 1000W or so PSU, I'll just buy a 500W, and use it in conjunction with my 750W.
What size do you need? I got several laying around on the shelf.
from a 500watt to a 650watt.
PM me and we can work something out.
Got a question? I got a chance to buy a Corei7 875K ES chip for like $225.00 is the Engineering Sample chip as good as a regular chip?
Edit its brand new and I know for a fact it boots and OC to 4.3GHZ with no problems.
