So.... I have been happily folding along, unchallenged, on my way to page one. (Top 100).

All of a sudden hshtick fires up his rig and starts putting out 600 000 PPD.

It's going to be close but I think I can just make it to page one before he passes me. :shock:

Waterblock is on the way for the 980ti so maybe I can get a few more PPD.

Soulcatcher. I see that you just earned your 30 mil as you posted above and that you moved up 6 spots this week. You have great momentum on your side.

hshtick is closer than 20 spots from you and moved 8 spots this week. :welcome: Welcome back to the fold and welcome to the forums.

You guys are earning about the same ppd and a run of good/bad WU's could change this race from update to update, day to day. This really will be a good race for now and any other milestones coming up.

Keep up the fold guys.

*Place your bets here*

It will take a few days to figure that out and I will let you know.

It sits at 1509 boost clock and 4104 on the memory @ 40 degs so +180 on the core and +600 on the memory which is a major bump at a much lower temp.

This is not a dedicated folding rig though. I would say that I could previously count on 450,000 to 500,000 PPD under my normal usage.

It goes way down on the weekend because my son and I both game on this machine as well.

Hopefully it is enough to get to page one first.
