No credit on the folding site, or on the extreme stats site?

There is a marked delay in seeing credits on the extreme overclockers site. You finished after 9pm, so the next stats in which you would be included would be at 12pm - assuming you are some 0 or multiple of 3 hours different from PST. At the moment, the Extreme site is working one hour after the Fol...

Bought a flash card reader with an integrated diskette drive

One of the most frequent uses for my computer is photo editing and storage. So I had to buy a flash reader. I used to have an external USB reader, from Apacer, but it died the death. And anyway, I hated the way it would hide under the papers on my desk when I needed it. So when I built my new system...

Linux checkpoints every 1%

And a Q6600, especially if you set up two linux appliances to split the cores, should have no trouble finishing a 1760 point WU inside the deadlines, if it is running 12 hours/day.

Iganu's sudden spurt looks like the result of a catch up by the stats team. Many many folders had been beefing on the support site about their completed WUs not getting credit.

is the fan louder than the other comparisons?

I think it is fiendishly hard to "tune" the volume and equalisation on your PC to evaluate the SPCR samples fairly. So, perhaps you can say whether the unit you received is also louder than the competing samples from the SPCR review at the same settings (as I understand it) as when you play the SPCR...

I bought a Tagan when the Antec PSU in my Sonata case gave up the ghost. It is very reliable, but it has never been quiet (any this rig runs without any O/C or other power-draining excuses). So if silence matters, I would choose one of the other solutions. In contrast to the Tagan, the Corsair HX520...
