Now it is just luck of the draw on whether you get an 8057 or not. I've been about 50/50 - 8057/8018 for last couple of days.

I would say it is the luck of the draw. I have been fortunate the past 2 days as i have received several 8057's. I have also received 8018's which are a pain but on the 580 seem to go thru in a little more time. The one thing I am noticing and not sure why is a bunch of 7038's and 7646's for the cpu. These are taking anywhere from a day to 1.5 days to complete. Also the 8057s seem to run in a shorter time and the GPU is not running as hot.

So, since these seem to be fairly stable based on everyone's reports, I decided to go back on my previous statement and try the Beta flag. Sure enough, I landed a bunch of the 8057's during the night, although back to some 8018's now. I just turned on my 580's for now but since everything is going smoothly I will most likely turn on some more this weekend. Watch out boys, I'm going to be rocking now

I never really understood why people do F@H. Do you get paid for it? Why so much hype?

We do it for the same reasons that people donate their time and money to other charitable endeavours. There are perhaps some who have other motives, but I haven't met any.

Nothing gets the girls like the high pitched whine of GPU fans or the squeal of coil whine.
