So, after a long hiatus, I finally stopped being lazy and put together a new gaming rig, nothing special, just a GTX 1070, but it is my newest GPU in at least 7 years.

The 100% of the time I am not using it, I have it folding.

With the new PPD it generates (~600k), I recon we will be back in the top 1200 with our individual user ranks again in about 40 days. Sooner if I can get these dang video drivers to work on my Ubuntu machine.

That is my daily driver and needs to be 100% stable, so I am not going to fiddle with it too much if it will destabilize my setup, which is why I quit folding for a while in the first place. I am overclocking it a tad and it will just have to do some CPU folding here and there.

Hope y'all are well, it has been a while.

I kinda gave up on folding. I fried my last computer doing it I think (it was a 7 year old rig though).

I just bought a $500 pc so we will see if the bug bites me again.

I'll quietly assume you've checked all your connections and cleaned out however much dust was in your system with some canned air.
