    290x Folding PPD

    With any luck I'll be setting up a 290x to the folding machine today. I was wondering if there's any updated pod info out there. Early on it varied from 115k - 180k per day, then abysmaly lower like 60k. Any one else folding with these have any guesstimates?

    F@H Config Help

    I've started folding again and would like to know what settings I should use to get the most out of my gpu. I've read that the new gpu client likes to dedicate 1 cpu core....should I leave the client setting at -1 or is there something better. Running a 2500k @ 4.2ghz and a 660ti at the moment

    1080p LCD and Blu-ray Drive

    I'm not sure if this is a true Display question or an HTPC one. Now that I've got a 24"1080p lcd and a new video card my last big upgrade is an internal blu-ray drive. Will they up-convert regular dvd's to 1080i/p or will I still need an up-converting stb dvd player? This pc is going to be the...

    Fah Smp Afiinity Changer - It Works!

    I've been seeing some discussion about the Affinity Changer program and decided to give it a try today. Being the skeptic that I am after all the bogus "ram doubler" programs from the mid 90's I wasn't expecting much. I must say that I'm very impressed with this little gadget. My E6420...

    ASRock Wolfdale1333-D667 LGA 775 Intel 945GC Mobo

    I need to build a cheap pc for the work to basically run quickbooks and solitaire on Vista. I was looking at the ASRock Wolfdale1333-D667 LGA 775 Intel 945GC Micro ATX board and an E2180 cpu. Has anyone tried this board, and specifically have you tried using DDR2 800 memory in it? I'm not sure...

    How Many New Quad Cores for Christmas?

    I was just curious as to how many folks around here got new q6600's under the tree last week? I was hoping to get one for myself, but my sons xbox360 elite quickly put an end to that idea :D. With our team ppd averaging ~940,000 / ppd, it would only take about 20 new oc'd quads to break the...

    QuadGT Chipset Drivers

    Since I've got the whole weekend to prep for my new build, I'm going to be slipstreaming a new xp cd. I read some where in another thread that Intel or Abit had newer chipset drivers for the QuadGT mobo. Anyone know which ones I should get and are there any other newer drivers like sata...

    Another Ubuntu VMWare SMP Guide

    I just bought an opty 165 from Lupine in the FS threads and we got to talking about fah. Turns out he fold for Rage3D (oh least he folds :) )and directed me to their guide for setting up the smp client with vmware. Here's the link to the guide. All you linux pros look it over...

    SMP Folding + Gpu Client

    I'll be setting up the vmware server next week with my "new" opty 165. I was also wanting to get an x1950xt and run the gpu client on it. Has anyone found the sweet spot to make the gpu folding worth the performance hit on the dual cores, or am I better off sticking with the smp client and...

    200,000 Points

    It's official, I finally broke 200k and get a shiny new [H]. It's been a long run. The first 83,000 took 27 months. The rest was done in 6 1/2 months...not a bad jump. At my current rate, I should break 600k by the end of the year....probably sooner if I can justify a new opty165 in a month. :D

    800 Cpus Coming Back??

    If you check OCAU's Stanford Page and look at #3 and #4 Trinedy, it's showing them down almost 800 cpus in the last 50 days (combined total). Is this something to be worried about, or are these mostly antiquated school cpus? I've been checking the stats as far as PpM, but the...

    End of an Era

    Looks like old Midnight Freak will be relegated to the #2 spot in the next 24hrs. That was a helluva run he had, and even without producing any points for almost a yr, maintained a healthy lead. Maybe since he's losing the top spot, he'll ramp up for a couple months and regain the lead.

    Missing Points

    Has anyone else noticed a problem with these newer low point proteins? I see it happen at least once a day on my boxes, when they turn in a 48, 53, 64 pt protein, they only get credit for 28, 33, 44 pts......I'm getting robbed of 20pts consistently on these little buggers, and for the 8-10 hrs...

    Good path for package install?

    Yet another linux newb question. Is there a typical or recommended dir to install packages too? So far I've just been making a new dir in the /usr dir. So far most things are working, except java runtime and Azureus, which is a java based app and can't find the path to java.

    Sparkletts water dispenser as res.
