I tested the new client a few months ago but with multiple GPUs it got scary!

The link for Overclockers in the F@H client goes to a 404.

I was given a machine at work to test recently with 2 GPUs in it that was apparently having hardware problems. I wanted to get both the GPUs loaded up (I forget what they are) and furmark will only use 1 so I thought I would give the old folding client a go. I must say, the new client is a significant improvement over the old command line driven clients from years gone by. I remember they required endless amounts of hand holding. Might have to load it up on my rig at home and see how it goes

Test the whole office when 'not in use'.

People come and go with Folding, there's always a few new-ish people who are mega keen (which is awesome!) or people coming back for a stint. Unfortunately very few who consistently pump out WU's but yeah, it's a bit of an investment in power etc.

my pc is on anyway for usernet automation reasons, had no net for almost 2 days, hated seeing 150k points siting there ready for upload and the pc sitting idle

good old amusenet automation. I've not been folding for a few years now and am anticipating having to kill my BOINC efforts for a period as well, due to my situation.

Good to see quite a few people returning and being amazed at what the GPUs can do

Came here via "Current Threads" on the news page.

http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...hp?s=&u=536522

Joeechick and I were trading places at the bottom end of the Team 24 Top 10 producers for a while there in 2011-2012, it was good fun until d00dz ramped it up to 11 and blew us out of the water.
I even won FOTM once (May 2012), when I was dumping heaps of time into it and running 3 boxen (2 of which were dedicated to folding). Still very much a badge of pride.

Power costs killed it for me eventually.

But now the place I'm living includes power in the fixed weekly cost of rent, and I have a GTX970 and a 6C12T Xeon.

Time to go back underwater methinks.

Thanks for rekindling my interest.

Welcome back!

Nothing quite like seeing yourself rocket up the team list with just one GPU

I've gone up 70 spots and doubled my total points in a month!
