How much are you guys thinking of folding in this 1 week ? Some of you will be folding 24/7 the whole week ?
I'm not thinking necessarily on the prizes, it doesnt matter to me.
WU means work unit. With folding@home each piece of virtual 'work' that is sent for your system to complete is called a work unit. Each work unit is worth a different amount of points depending upon how quick your computer can complete it and how fast it sends it back. The quick it finishes, the more points you get. Also I will be folding the full 24/7 week, alot of people will be doing this too. I leave my system running 24/7 for weeks on end.

I've tried signing up for the team and wouldn't allow me to, so I tried registering on the site and it kept telling me my username was invalid no matter what I chose. It doesn't help that it doesn't list the parameters for choosing a username.
Ive PM;d you.

CPU : 3770k @ 4.8 ( 6 cores active for folding as I read odd number cores above 4 on these new WU 17s can cause them to fail)
GPU : xfire 290s hopefully WBd by then with "moddest" ocs heh probably into the 1200s
I have the cpu set to client-type advanced and gpu set to client-type beta even though I think I can change it to advanced as the wu 17s are out of beta I believe. Atm I'm pulling just over 200k ppd although my cpu score seems lower then it should beand im currently on one GPU wiating for my second! Any suggestions beyond this?
Edit: Also, anyone know why It says "final credit estimate: 34936" for my completed WU but I only got just over 6k? According to my folding page I have 35 completed WU although I did have a bunch of problems with FAHcore_a4 and a3 when I first started so I dont know if I have 10 fully completed WUs or not. I have been error free for the last two days though and have completed in the range of 7-8 WUs
I think your setup is awesome, should be able to do up to ~425,000 points per day with those overclocks, which is no mean feat at all its a great amount!
You have only received 6k for those work units because you musnt have a passkey set in your configuration. With folding@home you need to complete 10 initial work units, then after these you start getting bonis points. Thats when you will get the full 34,000 points per unit. You can request a passkey here - http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py
My 3770k at 4.7ghz gets ~20,000ppd, the ppd is low on these cpus now, it used to be much higher. Im not sure I understand the gpu waiting bit, are you saying the client is waiting on you are physically waiting for your second gpu to arrive?
