Nice, same here. Most of our systems are older than i7s, though :(

I added another C2D iMac, and I'll be trying for another Mac Pro later.

Also, we moved up 6 places in 7 days. That's the fastest I've seen since I started folding in July.

what CPU? Try running it at 2 cores less than your CPU has. So if it's an 8 core CPU, do 6 cores.

My Core i7 iMac had issues folding at 100% for long periods of time. Oddly, the computer ran just fine, but the actual data that was being folded got corrupted and I had to start the Work Unit over from the beginning.

It's an i7 3820 @ 4ghz at moment.. I ran it all day yesterday but when I checked temps theyre at ~80c

+ an h80 water cooler, so something needs addressing.. I'll try reseating it

Oh weird. That's a serious set up there. My iMac's i7 is an older 860, so maybe the new generations put out a lot more heat?

The aluminum case on my iMac can get near hand-burning levels when it's at 100%, though.

Yup it's quite a powerful computer, had a 27" iMac with i3, but I wanted an ssd and theyre a pain in the arse for upgrading..So sold it and got this :)

Anyway.. Yep I think the temps are higher on these, but still something must be amiss.

We've jumped 4 spots in the last day, and 11 in the last week!

And we just passed 50 Million points!

Bummer, we went from 13 active users last week to only 7 this week.

Where'd everybody go?

In good news, I've added two more C2D iMacs, and I got my 8 core Core i7 iMac back and running tonight!
