my PG&E bill.. after 1 month of folding - Page 11

post #101 of 112
Go TVA! Thank you Government for the cheap electricity! (plus being 17 and in high school I dont pay the bill lol).

So yeah, now that I said that I feel bad sorry man for the situation you are in. I hope you can atleast fold when your PC is on on something. Thats what I do unless I'm downloading games on my slow DSL, then I just leave the PC on to download and fold.

Which electric provider are you in? We're both in Texas so I should be getting roughly the same rate. Ambit Energy here.

What the hell are you guys folding with?
A 300w difference around here for 24/7 usage is only around $25/mo.. (11c/kWh)

TBH higher premiums at this time of the year are mainly attributed to increase of heating..

The price that I posted earlier was for my main rig. i7 950, GTX 480, GTS 450

I also have a i5 660 and another GTS 450 in a media computer that folds. I then also have another i7 950 that's down right now but when it's back up it will be folding with a GTX 460. I expect this to raise my power bill maybe another $45

Cant think that it should increase your bill ny that much,

Im doing

0.360(kW) x 24(h) x 31(d) = 267.84kWh per month

267.84 x ZAR0.9333(0.130994262 USD) per kWh = ZAR249.98 (35.08USD)

for folding an i7 930 @ 4Ghz 211x19 .

There should be an external error, which I believe others have metioned.

Mad price schemes you have. .

Wow, both when I started folding and when I then later OC'd, I never saw that much of a jump. Though for some reason, they now claim we went from 1200KWhs to 1500KWhs from two months ago to last. I call hooligans.

Are people using Gold+ certified or better PSUs? With higher efficiency they pull less power out of the wall to generate the power of your system.

's a pretty helpful video.

I did see a big difference on my electric bill

I paid about $80 the last few months. And my Jan/Feb bill I paid about $150 and I don't even fold just gaming for 3 to 4hrs a day.
