Yeah, while I personally want oc'ing I'd say the Folding tests would be far better for the article's longevity, and give it a unique item of interest to people searching. Every site and their dogs will be covering oc'ing.

I thought they did, but I'll admit that when you said you didn't think they did, I went googling to make sure I was right on a purchase this size!

I've basically stayed out of the rest of this, but for this I would have to say I think I would prefer to see overclocking.

I think that while it is true other sites will cover overclocking, none of them do quite as good of a job as you do here. Plus while folding numbers will appeal to a number of people, I think that more would take advantage of OCing than folding. Thats my thoughts anyways.

Not going to happen. It take me about 10 hours per GPU to find stability. To get accurate PPD for folding it usually takes a good 24 hours. See the problem?

You know... now you give us the choice... I'd rather see some F@H numbers instead. Every other site is including OCing numbers so it would be nice to see something else in here.

I guess asking for both is a little too much?
