a million points by the end of January.. FAIL

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 


ONE day off from my million in a month quest. I will get to a million on Feb 1st of course. I am only at 42% on my current -bigadv, which would have put me over had it been done in time. If I had been absolute 24/7 the whole month I would have been able to do it, but I had roughly 10 to 12 hours of non-folding time this month.. so whoever said before that I could do a million by the end of January if I folded 24/7 at 4.20 GHz was right on the money. I'll have to give rep to that guy for being supremely correct.

But I decided it's all good as long as I keep ahead of Desert Rat and his shiny new 2600K rig until I can build my Bulldozer rig..

Nah, *I* won't let me slide by.. I got off to a slow start in the beginning of the month. I knew it was going to be close, but having it be this close, and just barely missing my quest is annoying.

But I am still happy getting a million and my millionaire badge.

Chimp Challenge will be next, then making sure I am in all the FoT's this year will put me in badgemiester status.

Yeah, you got that right bro!

Besides, with this 2600K chipset recall I am going to stop 24/7 folding if Desert Rat has to recall his mobo and is going to have to be down for a while. It takes all the fun out of beating him like a bad folding stepchild.

I haven't done any OC'ing this month because of me folding, time to enter geekdom once again.

Or just drop a GTS450 in that rig and you will do a million a month easy!

Nice work so far op. A million a month is nothing to sneeze at.

Thanks. Minnesota winter's have their upsides.

I have been thinking about defiling my rig with NVIDIA, I am such a shameless ATI fanboi though, it's been eating at me a bit since I know I can get get a GTX 480, essentially brand new for $300 if I want to. I keep hoping the NEXT GPU client will give us ATI people some love.

Yeah I was running a 5850 for months waiting. I got tired of waiting after a year, but hopefully it will be out soon. OCN should see a huge PPD boost.

Well I COULD get the 480, if I do that, then I am sure they will get ATI GPU client optimized and folding better than the NVIDIA cards within a week of me putting it in.
