    I have been folding with TeamPrius for about 2 months now. I just crank up my folding beast by overclock my E6600 to 3.0 ghz and also overclock my dual ATI X1900XTX. Wildkow, watch out for me. :p

    We broke into the top 1000 today! #998 (out of more than 7000 teams)

    (I'll humbly take partial credit, since there were 3 of us (myself, Dave and PS3) that contributed to the most recent update, but I'm not sure if it was that update or not that did it. So I have no proof, but it makes me feel good as I slowly drop in the team rankings (I was #10 for quite awhile, now #18) due to increased competition in the team.)

    Dang dude that's my dream rig! How many PPD do you get? I bought my rig with E6600 and GeForce 7950 GX2, then about 3 days later I read about the client for the ATI cards! :angry: Oh well that will teach me to slack off. Which MoBo do you use? I have just recently sold my old Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deadluxe <_< :( and bought the newer P5N32-E SLI Plus. I can hit speeds up to 3.35 Ghz but dang the box gets HOT! The MoBo also supports the newer Quad chips and as soon as the price dips I'll pick one of those up! :D

    The teams must be really clustered very close around 1000 because now I see us at 997.

    According to FahMon, my total PPD for the machine is 1500+. SMP client ~ 1022 PPD, GPU1 ~280 PPD and GPU2 ~ 207 PPD.
    My mb is Asus P5W DH. Currently, the CPU overclock to 3.0 with room for more speed. I was able to run 3.2 or higher very stable without default setting. I tuned it down a bit due to heat and having some problem while playing game.

    BTW are your MB have nForce 680i? I'm thinking about building another rig. nForce 680i look very promising for Quad.

    Until I move back out of the place I am in I cannot afford to let my computer run and generate a larger electric bill. I'm not even thinking about the GHG issues involved here.

    Mine has the 650i chipset but this board can do almost everything the Striker Extreme can do for less money.

    Heres Hard[OCP]'s take on the board.

    Your computer does not have to run 24/7. The amount of time you spend on the computer checking e-mail, visiting Priuschat.com or surfing the net is sufficient. Studies show that a typical computer & monitor combination releases around 500lb of CO2 extra each year if left on 24/7. If you switch the monitor off, monitors use more power than CPU's, you will cut that figure by 30-50%(?) and if you configure a diskless folding machine you can shut the disks off and save another large chunk of energy. Most processors consume approx. 100 watts of power and the newer Core 2 Duo's only 65 watts when running at 100%. So when all is said and done it's about the same as leaving on a light.

    Not a bad trade off when you consider the alternative of doing little to nothing about the horrible diseases that strike millions of people each year. Plant a tree or two and your carbon footprint is a zero-sum gain. :D Here’s the link for the client. The team number is 52533. How about it are you game? ;) The first post in this topic has instructions for setting up the Console client (maybe slightly faster than the graphical client) which is a no nonsense version and stays out of the way in the background. The windows graphical client, with a cool screen saver is even easier just use the answers in the console setup as a guide. Looking forward to seeing F8L in the stats!

    I'm not either since I buy my electricity from clean and renewable sources.

    Thanks for the info Wilkow. I'll see if I can get it to work on my machine and if so I'll join up! (my good computer is broken).

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(AnOldHouse @ May 11 2007, 04:15 AM) [snapback]439780[/snapback]</div>
    Nice!

    I'm so crippled staying at my moms house. Once I'm out of school I'll have my house built "off the grid" and can enjoy such piece of mind. :)

    My latest:

    As I was running iMovie to convert AVI files to MOV files (for posting my organ videos on YouTube) I was disappointed by how long they took (in the neighborhood of 20 minutes). So I decided to quit [email protected] But it refused to quit. The Activity Monitor indicated that it was still using 78% CPU usage. So I killed it from the Activity Monitor, and those iMovie conversions ran in about 3 minutes!!!

    So the [email protected] GUI client was not being "nice" at all. It is supposed to run at minimum priority, but was not doing so.

    I have (I hope and believe) elimininated it from my computer. This afternoon or tomorrow (as soon as I have plenty of time to deal with whatever problems may arise during installation) I will install the SMP client and see if it is any better-behaved.

    You speedy GPU folks have to slow down a bit. I was hoping to hit the #1 spot for at least a single day, but it looks like some of you are gonna blow right by me before I get there.
