Thanks Steve.

EVERYONE to me starts with our family, TEAM HELIX.

Without the team, where would all the encouragement and bright minds be found?

Those who have rallied with donations, advice, and support are what allows TH_Foldinator to accomplish anything. Just one of these cores is faster than any AMD or Pentium D we've yet purchased for the Foldinator Project.

And if we get enough continued donations, ... we have PCI-E x16 motherboards now (Hint, hint, ...)

Some energy thoughts if we all had core duo ...

156 watts burning for the two core duo PCs.

So,
78 watts for each core duo mother board
60 watts on an AMD2600

COMPARATIVELY
2400ppw for 78watts Core duo 2400/78=30.8 points per watt per week
0750ppw for 60watts AMD2600 750/60=12.5 points per watt per week.

For the same watts burning,
you get 2.5 times the output

More power experiments

I tried running A Power 400W on F2-10/F2-11
and the overall wattage is around 172 watts for the two dual core
It was 156 watts consistent before, so one power supply change added 16 watts.

Instead of 78 watts the blade now is 94 watts, or 20% more.
I guess you get what you pay for.
