Why don't you fold moar?

What's holding me back? Its my GPUs noise. The GTX 560 Ti reference cooler is loud. But as
soon as I put them under water its 24/7 for them.

BTW anyone got a full coverage block for a GTX 560 Ti to sell me?

Uhhhhh....

I fold 24/6.999 on all the available hardware. The 0.0001 day is for defragmenting, cache clearing and occasional restarts.
I even tried putting the 6670 to work, except that the [email protected] client refuses to acknowledge its existence.

I guess I could up my processor multiplier, but I won't go above 47x!
yes I will

But I do the best with what I've got

Not to pick on your dad, but where do people get this idea? Computers do not spontaneously catch fire. Nor do they explode. Or emit radiation that causes cancer. I've left my computers running 24/7 for the last 13 years. And not one has caught fire.

Does he unplug the refrigerator when he leaves the house?

I have no idea actually. I might question him about it someday and fold since I really don't do anything with my PC while I sleep.

I have so much more gear I wish I could run 24/7 but the price of electricity I just can't do it. $1000 electricity bills suck

Power consumption. I do live in an area where power is "cheap", but since I don't pay for the electricity I use, I feel like I am taking advantage of my parent's monetary resources.
