Excellent series if you can keep the timeline straight, they are written out of sequence and from two different viewpoints/sides with multiple main characters.

Very highly Recommended...

Wow! I am just surprised that I made it on the list for the 260, considering I wasn't home for half the previous month. It makes helping science out even better when there are side benefits like this!

I'll do my part to help us reach the top 100!

Good luck to all who participate.

As for the heat issue, that's why you've got to get the ppd before the weather get's nasty...
Ok so I oc'd one gtx 260 and it says 7000 ppd in Fahmon, how can I oc the second gpu since I had to disable sli to get both of them folding (cuz its only showing around 6100 ppd (+-200 depending on the WU) slightly higher or lower depending on the WU). The GTX 260 SC 55nm, are giving around 6500 ppd, havent tried to oc them yet but I think I will soon.

Use the latest evga Precision, you can link an overclock to multiple GPUs, even if not SLI'ed.

Yup - the GPU Client changed all that. Imagine running the contest 2 years ago, with the Clients we had back then...
