Yep, hell i've used my computer for everything except for gaming when i'm folding 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%, these things are designed to handle a lot thrown at them and keep on chuggin

I'm in this category for sure! I have no A/C in my place and my office's been getting over-heated for sure. On the flip side though, once the tempature drops on a regular basis, I'll be folding on 3 machine's instead of 1.

toooo hot atm, can only game for maybe 45 minutes before even that makes it to hot in here, once cooler weather hits i'll be good to go again, and hopefully i'll have a q9550 by then to make up a bit for getting rid of a gtx260. :)

Have been benching my I7 so it is not being utilized (just about done), it is too hot upstairs so the wife has been using my folding computer in the basement (with gpu folding paused) instead of her lappy upstairs. My Q9450 rig has been demobbed and will be parted out due to the fact that multi gpu folding is the way to go. Will only have two puters folding and still have a few holidays coming up so all will be shut off while doing that.

The building I have my server in has AC and my landlord is an icicle so she keeps the AC on 24/7 so I have my computer at home running all the time but my laptop stalls when I try and fold and do something else and I have been neglecting to turn on F@H when I go to school.

EDIT: OT but how does F@H differentiate the computers? because I have not run my account on 8 computers.

I'm still folding away, though I've been pausing to get some work done.

How hot is it for you all?
The room I'm in right now is 28c today (45% humidity).
Highest it gets in here is 30c... humidity can go up to 60% or so.

I cut it back a bit, but still folding, heat is a bit of issue.

I was folding up until 2 days ago (and turned one rig back on for a half day). I'm going to try getting at least one of my 2 rigs back on in the next couple days. and if it drops down a little bit more, I should be able to get both back on.

The temps have also been cooler the last few days so my temps are down as well :) Now that I've got the VMware clients running fahmon shows ~9500 PPD on my main and I've got my ps3 going, i dunno how much PPD that's worth...
