    Shifting Gears - Moving away from F@H, need suggestions

    The boinc is just a different animal all together. The projects workload are very different from project to project. My farm was completely setup for just F@H. Alot of CPU, little RAM, all running on USB flash drives. Some of the projects required more memory than I had whiched cause Disk I/O...

    I'm in the same boat with Linden, just starting to convert over my folding boxes. I have 16GB of RAM on a OS from my USB memory stick.

    What's your strategy for 4ps that are/were folding?

    I've shutdown 3 boxes on Feb 1, been running on one to test out the 8106/8107 units. This week I've been reimaging the boxes to the 9.1 appliance and starting to play with crunching.

    EVGA Overtake

    I got to agree with you all, It's just sucked the life out of me for Folding.. First time I've check the forums in weeks. Maybe its time to unionize and organize a boycott for sometime period.. Maybe that happening, and I missed it in the forum..Lol.

    Change in BA requirements

    This seems simple to solved.. If the needed work is SMP, just ramp up the points. 3x the points for SMP for the month of January or until the work load balances. At the end of the day, what does this cost them? I mean, it's not like I can trade my 500M folding@home points for a Chipotle...

    Would it be possible for get your quantity discount, if you did a folding / DC graphic on the back and still left the front for Team logo? Then other teams could help drive up the quantity. I know over at EVGA, we have talked about this for years now.

    Where do you hide your multiple 4P rigs?

    I've had no major problem running in the garage. I've had some of the rig random lockup, but I seem to bet that inside as well.

    OC 4x 6172 on [H] Appliance

    Still working on it.. Had an irc session with tear and tried abunch of things. Next step would be to swap some cpu2 and cpu4 and see if that does anything.. It may or may not. I've back down to running at 230 ~2.41GHz and getting some WUs done. My 6166HE set I had up to 257 and just didn't...

    The Cool Tip is what I'm remembering, just couldn't find it. Thanks Musky! Going to try sc0tty8 thumb drive setup next. I think it will help with air flow thru the rack without the hard drive mounting and cables..

    [H] Ubuntu DC Appliance -- alternative approach to Linux crunching/folding
