    CPU mining still have any value?

    been mining some altcoins lately and I was wondering if there is any way I could put a 4p g34 (6172) to use mining xpm or pts or something else. Are any of these still profitable? thanks in advance

    $275 shipped for any [H] DCer in the lower 48 I've had this rig for about a month now, but the folding bug has bit me again and I am moving on to bigger and better things. This setup will still get about 150k ppd on average. *psu not included* *custom chassis in pic not included* aside...

    Running on fumes

    well, as some of you may have noticed (but probably not), my ppd is nothing like what it used to be a month or so ago. used to have a really nice farm running at my parents house, but those days are no more.

    There comes a time in every mans life when he decides that he needs to set up a fold server. that time is now. :) Going to set up the server/router on a dual 244 opteron machine... just becuase it has a dual NIC integrated. Running it through an 8 port netgear hub to the clients. So far...

    evga 6800gt problems

    i have a 6800gt that isnt exactly performing as i'd like it to. at stock speeds it locks up after about 30 seconds of any newer game (HL2, farcry, etc). the card idles at 53c so i'd think it wouldnt be an overheating problem... that is until i underclocked it to 310/900. at these speeds the card...

    Asus PC-DL problem

    Just an observation

    i was looking at some of the stats for the big 3 (H, OCAU, and one thing seemed a bit odd to me: OCAU has 11 people producing 4k+ ppd, has 9, but the H only has 2 (FLECOM and pageian). i dunno if this really means anything but it does make me wonder... where are our big producers...
