Seriously dude, hot glue is nothing to worry about. The tip of the gun itself is hot, but the glue begins too cool very rapidly once it hits the air. I hot glued my finger and it didn't hurt thattt much.. it hurts, but not crying like a baby hurting.

Dude your bigadv is pulling in some awesome points. You're in sstnt range now. Lutro0 is doing well too, CJ is second in his cat, and I should be able to make up the difference for Argeius because CB seems to lose units pretty often and is using VMWare so doesn't get as many points. I just need to work on my consistency...

I've been burned pretty badly in the past by it. Not a fan. Anyhow, the new A5 -bigadv, specifically the 6901, cut another 20 seconds from my tpf, so expect even more.

If I can get my 990 at a reasonable clock that's better than the 4.2 on the 970, more yet.

If only the TC would take a month break or something. Give us all time to tweak to our hearts content. I'm sure if I had the time I could match koven's 4.3... if not more. With a 20C ambient temp, my proc hits about 40-41 when folding. Feels good man.

Feels good maaaan. Those are nice temps, and I'm sure you could get more out of your chip. You're on a 1090 now, right?

Right... when I OC, I find it entertaining to get a little intoxicated.. that isn't a great idea because I end up trying settings I've tried already that ended up not working. Long story short, I don't overclock well on illicit substances.

That's why i suggested a break. A month should be enough to try every combination of settings 10 times each... I'm sure a break won't happen since it's downtime is what creates competition.

I know I've been saying it a long time, but we seriously need to hit the Misfits with all we've got this month... I'm the biggest offender of non consistency but I'm ready to not touch my machine for the full 30 days this month. Not just the misfits this time tho. Laundromatic need to resume their mediocre position in the rankings too.

I figure we take a page out of Victor Reznov's book and proceed with these 7 steps

1- Secure the keys
2- Ascend from darkness
3- Rain fire. (90k+ points from your 990)
4- Unleash the horde.
5- Skewer the winged beast.
6- Wield a fist of iron.
7- Raise Hell.

Yup, we stick to the plan we should take first.

Well. That would seem to be a detriment, and you should probably do that. Drugs are bad, mmk?

A break certainly won't be happening, I can tell you that much for sure. Though, it might be neat to have like a month at the beginning of the year for preparation, but the beginning of the year has already happened, so that doesn't make much sense anymore. Or even a week, for that matter, but meh.

Someday, we will take The Misfits down. And we will do it with as much force as we can muster. Hopefully Argeius gets his GTX+s so we have that spot filled, if not, we're going to have a bit of a hole to fill, but I'm sure we could make up for it.

Mediocre position in the rankings? We took our first month to get everything OC'd and stable so we could actually complete properly. That's really the reason we've done so well. Plus I think the team actually formed about halfway through the first month so it's hard to say where our natural position in the ranks should be. .

Anyway it makes sense to do whatever you need to if you really want to dethrone our mutual enemy. If you need a week to dial in your best overclock take the week and do it.

He's right. This month is a loss. Disengage your hardware for tweaking, you have three days. Do work.

How hot do you think a (nvidia)200 series chip can get 24/7 and still last a long while.
