If I have to chose, I will take OC, but since I am pretty sure I will get good OC review from other reputed site and no F@H data, I'd say go F@H.


I dont know how you are planning to do, but knowing wich project you've folded in that 24h period would be good to get a better sense of the performance.

I may regret saying this, but I think the OC results are more relevant to the general populace. There's too many different WU's with different PPD's, and even different PPD's depending on the molecule being examined. I'll just watch the Folding Forums, I'm sure there will be a couple early adopters post their PPD's over there.

I don't know....

OC results are not generally relevant simply because of the wildly different overclocking headroom from one sample to the next.

99% of sites won't cover folding, so wouldn't you rather see something more unique here? For overclocking results you could just head over to one of the other dozens of sites that'll have them. I haven't seen a single site on the internet (except for perhaps FAH-Addict, but I doubt they'll be getting GF100 samples) that runs proper folding performance benchmarks.

Default gaming power

I vote for OC results (ahem; not that this is a democracy). I'd like to see the headroom you can get SKYMTL, even though we know individual cards/results will vary. And how drastically does the power draw go up on OC???
F@H, info will come, but first it's about gaming power.

Given the last minute TPD? changes (or rumours there of) it would be nice to know if they have any OC headroom.
