Down goes Boo!
« on: March 13, 2009, 10:36:22 AM »
I'm placed second again :)
My 8800GT was struggling on a new unit, a large one worth 1680 points that takes ~10 hours to complete.
Now that's finally in (and it's working on another now) I've overtaken boo.
Let's see how long that lasts ...

Nice congrats! :)

I know, they're monsters.  Looks like they're becoming fairly common as the units are refined to take advantage of the GPUs.
I'm considering extra GPU cooling again - not because my card is overheating, but because I'm like that, and these units are again heating up my card.
