I finally made the top 50 folders on OCN, #49 to be precise!
What a struggle just to get here and even more of a struggle to maintain this position. I should get another GTX 480.

If only my i7 @ 4.2 would fold properly...it always starts out fine but a few days later, drops to 4k PPD. After I delete my work folder and queue.dat, it works fine again but the cycle continues.

Drops to 4k? Only way that would happen is if the TPF shoots up and the ETA is past the deadline...

You should have no problem staying in the top 50 if you keep folding


Are you folding 24/7 on the i7? It would drop to 4k PPD if HFM thought that you were going to miss the preferred deadline (losing the bonus points)

How much of the CPU are your GTX 470s using? Perhaps they are interrupting the SMP too much; try using only 7 cores for your bigadv, you may see better results.

You are set to overtake me in 2 weeks
