Yea, I'm not eligible unfortunately.
Quote:
The best candidates are those who have been folding for a while and have experience with this forum, F@h clients, FahCores, WUs, Servers, etc. Thus we will check your user history. Those who participate regularly in this forum either by asking questions or helping others tend to get priority over those who rarely post, simply because it shows your willingness to be an active member within the F@h Community. If you just joined this forum and/or have very few posts, your request post should distinguish you as to why you would be a good addition to the Beta Team. Please note that if you don't plan to stick with it, we would prefer that you do not join. If this is your first visit to our forum, you are not eligible for membership to the Beta Team.
(Emphasis mine.) I spent many an hour there back in the day but it was always for searching for answers. We had our own folding forum to actually ask and answer the questions. I used to fold extensively for the abit folding team (RIP abit) and had 1.75million points when points were much harder to get than today. Currently, however, it seems I'm not eligible to be a beta tester. Sorry to disappoint. Hopefully they'll bring 7.1.42 to a public beta sometime soon.

I can't seem to find a solid answer, but am I correct in thinking all initial launch 7970 are based on the reference design? I plan on water cooling a pair so I just want to make sure before picking them up on monday.

Most likely, yes. Just look for the AMD logo screen printed on the PCB at the PCIe x16 connector.

I gotta say Hoki, seemed a little like you wanted to bully Nvidia on this review

I'm sorry it seemed that way. NVIDIA had the king of the kill for a long time. AMD took that crown back with gusto, that's all.

Hah, I loved the review and I'm glad amd is at least on top of something for once again.

Just noticed you pouring it on in good fashion lol.
