R u sure that has nothing to do with your air conditioner working harder to cool that house? It usually isnt that big of a jump.

Do you have one of those kill-a-watt things? you can monitor usage that way. And ive seen folding increase the bill by 80~ occasionally, but never by that much, I think there is something else going on.
about to order one off amazon

i think mid jan.. maybe the week of the 17th
so roughly, for the first half of the month, it was 1090t + 570, and the second half was 1090t + 570 + 2600k
btw i got a ps3 folding for most of the month too, not sure how much power that uses but im turning it off for sure lol

24 hours a day, 31 days = 744 hours a month
744 hours x 1KW = 744KWh
$0.15/KWh * 744KWh = $111 to run this computer constantly at 1000W.
Something isn't right here.
there's a baseline usage, 352 kwh @ $.12, then there's a charge if you go over that, i'm now in the 201-300% of Baseline range, which bumps the cost up to $.39Edited by koven - 2/7/11 at 7:12pm
