Looks like the servers are finally fixed. I am finally getting my PPD back up and so far the logs look good.

By the way, got my Q6600 @ 3.3 Ghz and the GTX260 running cool and stable @ 702/1512/1224 for 7029 PPD on projects 5007, 5008, 5215 and 5216 using drivers 177.72 This card rocks and looks good compared to the list of other GPU PPD.

I checked online and on average, my rigs contribute about $30 a month to the power bill. Not too bad considering the amount of ppd i am getting, and compared to what the other clients can produce when you take cost and power consumption into consideration.


A fun comparison chart:

Why no banner in your sig??

Code:

One gpu folding doesnt really use much more power, its only about 20 watts more if you leave your computer on anyways.

Yeah i got three going, but i bought them used.
