An HD4870 at idle uses something like 160watts, that's like 4x40T fluorescent light bulbs. Churning at 100% uses something like 230watts, which is about about 6.

In other words, even if you did switch your whole house lighting, it wouldn't make a dent in the power bill, it's still going to cost (and my sis may fuss due to it, so now turning off the rig when asleep to make up for 230w folding runs).

It's these videocards that are the energy hogs in rigs now, procs/motherboards/HDD are all lower wattage now.

Mine was up about $13, and that's running 2 rigs. I am making a conscious effort to turn of lights etc.

Not true.

I've had overclocks that were perfectly stable while folding, but once I start up a game it would crash.

I've been lagging off today and yesterday... sorry about that guys. Just a few comp issues, you know how it goes.

Anyhoo, I now have an 8800GTX, 8800GTS-512, and an 8800GS, as well as SMP, folding 24/7. Should be pumping out 16k ppd with any luck.

Fold on!

If you up the shaders to the stratosphere and forget to bring them down to Earth to play a game, even expect it.

Does anyone know if those blade servers are in Florida or wildfire areas in CA (we can wish!)?
Cute... Way to feed the cause wishing the worse for us...
BTW Barnettworks servers have been going off line for the last 3 days and we are still climbing even though he has dropped over 200,000 PPD the last 3 days...
