    Just a reminder

    Thanks guys for the great guides..I joined the team!

    I know for Nvidia cards at least you have to run separate instances of folding for each gpu, also you probably will have to tag the first one with -gpu 0 and the second one with -gpu 1 after the -forcegpu. Ati Crossfire people I'm sure will correct me if i'm wrong! :D Welcome to the Team btw!!!

Also looks like I will be able to bring my 9800 gx2 box back online as it's finally getting cool enough to run without AC -_- so I hope to be able to get...

    Race to 1 Million!!!

    Inevitably I have had some fairly warm days out this last week which really sucks for folding as I refuse to run the AC in November so I have had to turn off a couple of clients off and on this last week:(

    EVGA: 1.1 year overtake

    I've brought 20k ppd back online over the last week I have about another 40k ppd sitting in my room that will turn back on when I can afford the power and then a dual quad xeon box that I have coming up soon :) hopefully that should help a bit to fend off evga! :D

    New build pics! 9800gx2s

    Wow very nice Looks exactly like my build except mine isn't naked or running right now. (I got a powerbill for $650) Sadly all my stuff is down until winter because keeping it cool in 100 degree heat isn't viable for me right now:( but here's to you kicking ass!!!

    PpD comparison Q's

    lol sorry i wasn't so much going for a very scientific formula or anything but i was wanting to make sure people realized that especially with the summer months arriving that heat is deff an issue.

    PpD comparison Q's

    a 285 should beat a 260 but ppdp$ i think the 260 would probably win

    PpD comparison Q's

    my 295 will do stock clocked 10-14k ppd (14 unless 511's are plaguing me) however after chimp challenge i will probably be winding down my folding box for a couple of months as today it was in the 100's outside and that's a lot of heat to overcome. (I will however probably be building a 260...

    PpD comparison Q's

    I think another number we should be looking at is point per watt of heat :D I love my gx2's and 295 but if i had to do it again I probably would go with 260's mostly because of the ppdpwh ;)

    Guide: Setting up notfred in VMWare Player

    the reason i can only run one vm at the moment is i haven't installed a 64 bit os if i did then running 2 wouldn't be a concern at all.

    Guide: Setting up notfred in VMWare Player

    i'm running 5 in my current folding box so 4 shouldn't be an issue, however ram can become an issue unless your running a 64 bit os. I can only run one vm on my main box because 2 gx2 and a 9800gtx doesn't leave me enough ram to run 2 vm's without killing gpu ppd.

    is winAFC still in test mode? have you told it to detect your cpu? Have you told it to load profile? make sure you told it to start your icon should be yellow/black/green/red not gray
