That explains a lot, actually.

I actually can't believe I am where I am on the leaderboards, though I don't think I'll be moving up any time soon. Glod and bavman have the top 2 slots pretty locked down.

glad to see some people are sticking to it, hope to see more.

How long did you wait for the GPU to start? Maybe it's a larger WU and you need to wait a little longer before you see progress.

I think it'd be a good idea to have some basic information about F@H's goals and background in the original post for people who don't know what it is. As of now, I am folding for another forum's team and sticking to that one for now.

Good to know.  The processor I am running is a stock cooled i7-2600.  I figure I'll let it run the rest of the day, see what numbers it puts out.

I just double checked. On "full" with a stock GTX570 and i7 3770k I'm getting ~62,000 PPD
