    The free ride is over!

    Just got an email from HP about the cloud services beta beginning to charge. The largest 8 Core virtual machine will cost $1.28 an hour. Probably not a good option for folding. ;) Basically pricing scales with memory. It works out to $.04 per hour per gig. With memory amounts preset.

    WTB - Quiet Socket 771 HSF

    Title says it all, I know there aren't a ton of options, but hopefully someone has something. :) Otherwise I'm rig something up. CPUs are L series so the TDP is only 50w each. Water cooling really isn't an option since this is going to be in my Norco storage server. I'm looking to hopefully...

    More life for C32/G34

    Over at Anandtech there is a story about the upcoming AMD road map. One interesting tidbit is that the G2012 socket is on hold and C32 and G34 will be getting Piledriver based CPUs. No changes in core count still a max of 8 on C32 and 16 on G34 I'm loving the lifespan of the platform...

    I'm Back

    After a long break, I'm back. I never left WCG, but I've been away from FAH for awhile. Picked up a couple of GTS250s that I just got up and running this evening with the GPU client. I haven't touched the cards yet from an overclocking perspective. What is a good target to hit on the shaders...

    AMD Opteron 4000 Platform

    Thread in front page news Depending on motherboard availability looks like an interesting platform at a much lower cost than hexacore Intel CPUs. Sweet spot seems to be 6 core 2.6ghz Opteron 4180 for $188. Of course the motherboard quality is going to be the big question. Supermicro has a...

    I unfortunately need to ramp down my farm to cover some other unexpected bills (Taxes, and a larger than expected hospital bill for our new baby). More will come but the first things on the plate are the following. All cards should be considered bare cards only, all work perfectly for folding...

    GPU Performance Trends - Or buying GPUs now for future PPD

    So the obvious sweet spot right now for GPU folding is on the Nvidia side using G92 based GPUs. There have been some allusions in other threads about how the PPD for G92 based GPUs will drop as newer more complex proteins are released. With that thought in mind. What are the relative...

    Is my 680i motherboard useful again using the new GPU client?

    I have a 680i motherboard that has 2 16x and 1 16x(8x electrical) slots. I was thinking that I could start off with 3 9600GSO cards. The way the slots are spaced I could also upgraded 3 9800gx2's at some point. But spending less $200 to get to 15k points a day out of one box is really...
