    Hi all

    Even though every year we seem to suffer a small drop over the Christmas period, we don't seem to have bounced back this year to our normal 3 million a day average. Combined, with losing a couple of major farmers recently, we've now got some threats appearing on our radar for the first time in years.

    Namely, Overclock.net and TSC! Russia. Although they are both a number of years behind us, it won't take much of a ppd shift for the situation to change for the worse.

    So - all hands to the oars and row faster chaps :thumb:

    I'll try and increase my own personal contribution to the team over the next couple of weekends by building a few more rigs.

    I had almost all my server's drop off while I was out of the country recently thanks to a switch failing :(

    Fixed that yesterday, should get back to my 20,000 PPD soon hopefully.

    As im sure you will all appreciate if I could run any more I would lol! I've got my main WC'd 4.2ghz i7 cracking out some bigadv's again for a while but im killing my lecky bill :waah:

    I will try and stay upto around 200,000 ppd for as long as I can but keeping 9 CPU's and 20 GPU's running 24/7 is not without its challenges! :worried: :worried:

    Just got my electricity bill the other day. :jawdrop: Paid the outstanding balance as well as my Gas today. :waah:

    Both rigs, an E8600 with a GTX275 & a GTX260. Q6600 with 2x GTX260 both still folding despite the big hole burned in my pocket. ;)

    Forget about notfred. Just run a windows SMP client you will get 'nuff bonus & you will still be able to use the machine for gaming or whatever occasionally. Bigadv will provide more bonus if you just leave it alone & never use it for 'owt else.

    I'm with British Gas Dual-Fuel so no not really that cheap lol.
    I should say though as a lot of people already know but my most of my dedicated rigs - 3 x 9800GX2's, 8 x GTX260's, 2 x 9800GT's and a bunch of CPU's over 3ghz are in work in the air-conned server room saying as im in charge of it hehe ;) but I still run 2 x GTX260's, a GTX295, 2 x 4.2ghz i7's, a Q6600 and a E8400 at home so I got a good 1500-2000 watts being pulled 24/7! :worried:

    Yes VMware & NotFred still best PPD at the moment mate, if you have an i7 running over 3.6ghz with hyper threading turned on then you can jump on the BigAdv bandwagon for a nice big bonus in PPD :thumb:

    The new a3 core with 6.29 client will provide a good halfway house between the previously 'broken' 4 core smp folding & the latest bigadv 4+ core folding.

    Tesla - yeah I will if you give me some hardware and I will find it a home in there for it ;) lol
    I done a quick/rough add up and worked out I have around £4000 worth of dedicated gear folding out of my own pocket, in fact shiiiiit I didn't realise I had so much moneys worth of kit!!! :jawdrop: :jawdrop:

    DaTLiTe - see here mate and leave questions about it on there, im using it on 2 of my i7's and its alllll good :thumb: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=181923
    You can shut this BigAdv down if you want to have a game as well, just don't leave it down for too long as you will miss the deadline and miss out on the bonus but @ 3.8ghz you will have a good 20 hours to play with!

    I'm under 1000 k/watts in total thankfully. Somehow I suspect my rigs might obtain a new username in your server room :D

    i7 920 online (@3.3ghz at the moment using the Asus ROG i7-965 level up option) 2x9800GX2 cards back online

    need some tips on getting to 3.8Ghz,

    will an Phenom II at 3Ghz be able to do Big adv units (guess i could sell it later on and get an UD5 and an I7-920 or 6 core as the UD5 does have Lots Sata connectors)
