Totally understandable :)

My parents don't listen to logic though, they're completely opposed to DC even if I pay my part of the power bill. So I'm limited to my laptop, although the ION setup I'm planning should also be fine

That sucks man :( Even if you pay the part of the bill is just insane that they wont let you :( Im gonna need to figure out a way to exhaust the heat this summer. Haha last chimp challenge i had two box fan's exhausting out of my room and it was still pretty warm in there. Last chimp challenge i was a noob to folding and i managed to buy new hardware for the CC. 9600 gso and a phenom II quad ftw! :laugh:

Folding isn't going to be happening on the laptop GPU, it just makes things too hot
I fold on one of my work laptop's 24/7 I just had to get a laptop cooler which cost me $10.00 bucs, now the temps stay in the mid 40C all the time.:D When before I got the cooler they would run in the low to mid 60C all day.:eek: It was the best investment I made for it.
The laptop is a Dell 6500 with an core i7M and a 400m series GPU. If it breaks it's covered under the Dell warranty we have. So I'm not really worried about it.:D I also have a MacBook pro for work and it is only used for work nothing else.
Try to find you a cooler they run on a USB plug and really do work, surprised me.:toast:

I'll check it out, but I mainly use this on the go. And I doubt that a 120sp ATI card would do much in terms of folding performance anyways, so I don't want to risk baking it.

Which cooler do you have?

Right now folding on the laptop with the i3 it's loading at 75°C :eek: I also have a laptop cooler under it but im not sure it even does much :ohwell: Should i set up a box fan laying flat and have it supported by boxes for airflow and set the laptop on top of that?

EDIT: Went for the idea and holy crap it lowered temps by a good 20°C in less than a minute! Anybody looking for a cheap laptop cooler? You found it :D

Do you understand how fans work? It won't pull NEAR enough air to do much on the ground. It needs to be raised. There is no air intake, therefore there is little air outtake. Please take a basic physics class...

EDIT: Assuming the box fan is 36" the optimal height where it will gain the most airflow, the same as being vertical, would be just under 12 inches off the ground. You say you have boxes, but I don't see them!

Well then look harder :p The fan is a good 6 inches off the ground and honestly if my temps have already decreased that much it's doing something.

Yeah I see them now. I think you should put your computer inside your air conditioning vent in the house. I did that with a computer once... AC man was confused.

Haha wouldn't do much right now since the heat is running all the time. I have all my ducts closed anymore so it doesn't heat up my room anymore than it already is.

This summer though i may need to run a dryer hose to a front intake on my lexa s

Careful, fans lose power as the hose gets longer. So a long hose will mean LITTLE suction. Try to avoid hoses.

My laptop Cpu & GPU nets me 10K PPD. That is why I use it anything less than that and it would be not be worth it to fold on.
This is the cooler I bought and I was wrong it cost me less than 10.00 bucs. It was on a bid auction and I won it for $8.50 with free shipping.

Dang, 10K is a huge amount for a laptop.

So, I had a slow day at work and wrote a little Screen capture utility that might be useful to those who take a lot of screenshots. Check it out here: ScreenCapture Utility

It's a new core i7M laptop with the newer 400 series Nvidia GPU. so yeah it folds pretty damm good for a laptop. Damm thing weighs 10 pounds I hate taking it on trips, but it's nice also because it has the 17" screen. Plus has a blueray player so I can watch movies on it. Does good for a laptop.

Wow thats one amazing laptop man! Too bad my sister wasn't into pretty white laptops and would have settled for a black asus with a actual dedicated gpu.

That's an impressive laptop, what are the specs?

My T400 (2.4ghz C2D) pulled about 1.6k on most WUs, I'd assume my W500 would be at about 2k PPD from SMP

I was actually talking to Josh, but that's a laptop to be feared :p

A 210w brick? Damn. I thought the 90w brick that my new W500 required was a lot :eek:

My T400 (2.4ghz C2D) pulled about 1.6k on most WUs, I'd assume my W500 would be at about 2k PPD from SMP
Oh didn't know you were talking to me. It's a sony vaio with a core i3 330m. Only bad part about it is that it's got intel GMA :( It's not too shabby though. I can play tf2 and css on it easily.


Finally getting some different work units again on my gpu's Have been getting all 353's since i started my clients up again yesterday. 353's are very nice cause of the high PPD though.

When are the gpu3 clients getting some different work units? Id be tempted to switch if the 9xx units came back. Weren't 450's getting like 15k PPD on those units and 470's were getting like 18k?
