Looking at last month (I tracked stats pretty closely) There were a few members that could out pace the top three slots on a given day but wouldn't do so consistently. Ishi started two days late but folded consistently and has a decent clock so he ended up in third, climbing the category as the month went on. As Arvi mentioned set it in a corner and don't touch it, consistent folding is key.
Should this thread include a database of WUs, TPF and PPD with chip, ram and overclock info? Might be good for seeing where everyone is at and for new members to see if they are on pace. I think the current PPD database is outdated also. If you guys want to submit them in the following format I would be happy to organize them into a spreadsheet.
Chip: (eg. 2500K)
Overclock: (eg. 4.7)
Ram Speed: (e.g 2133)
OS: (eg. Linux, Windows, VMware)
WU: (eg. 6097)
Min TPF: (e.g. 7:53)
Max PPD: (e.g. 30,000)
Avg. TPF: (e.g. 8:01)
Avg. PPD: (e.g. 29,000)
**Not sure if timings matter now that this cat can't fold bigadv but might be interesting to see.
I also added the Min TPF/Max PPd and the Average data as sometimes I get one really good frame that skews the data a bit, I think the averages are a bit more representative.
This sums it up pretty much. I was #1 on and off put couldn't stay consistent after some hardware issues. I was keeping around 30k PPD consistently hitting 30.5k once in a while. If I could've stayed as consistent, I may have stayed where I was.
Consistency is the key to winning in this category. Full native 24/7 with a nice clock, you can easily win or take top 3.
