Wow... cant believe how competitive this is making me feel. I think more hardware is on the horizon.
Ya, I had to choose between more vid cards or water cooling and I chose water cooling. Once I get that all sorted out I will maybe do a crossflash to a P6T bios and see if I can add some cards and get some sli goodness going. :canadianwave:

This is awesome. Good to see Bob chime in too, as he has a folding beast there. Weird that he cannot get that 3rd GPU folding though. He knows where to call....

All in good fun. I posted the following comment on their forum to say a friendly hello:
Haha awesome! TPU is a great site and I have been coming here for a while.

It will be an honour to pass you guys as folding brothers.
Just to say hello....

Cold here in Ajax tonight. The folding dungeon (my computer room) is cooler than usual. With 4 gpu clients, and six instances of vmware going, I'm at 42K PPD right now (until the missus turns on the microwave/curling iron/toaster lol). I'm mailing my old folding AMD rig, with a 9600gso 384mb and 6400 Black ed. to my dad this week, and it too will be folding....

Ive got all my cards folding again! should be back up to about 40-45k PPD now.
Ordered one of those $40 9600 GSO's and will start that folding this week sometime..
Also have a MSI K9A2 Platinum coming so will have a few extra PCI-E16 slots to drop things into.

ran another 30amp circuit into the computer room and got my old 2.4 KVA UPS up and running so im set to add more GPU's

I was going bring my Sun E10000 into the house this winter and use it instead of my electric furnace... but that's right out the window now since im focused on folding...

If we can get to 600,000PPD, and we did during the last contest, we would catch them pretty quickly. Right now, it looks like if we put our minds to it, I believe we will get them this winter.

In the meantime, we will overtake a bunch of other teams before them. TPU and HWC will be in the top 50 range by the time we go toe to toe...

I'll be giving more ppd for our team this winter also, I think I have my GF Hooked on Folding ( would also be a good slogan for HWC folders). She doesn't have her own rig but she seems more willing to let me upgrade more since I started folding. :clap:
