    ** Just to throw this out there...**


    You can fold while gaming. I've not tried folding while playing any online super fps or anything...but folding doesn't have an effect on games like Civilization 4 at all.

    Agreed.

    I play COD WAW, Supreme Commander, TF2, GTA4, UT3, GRAW, GRAW2, Fear, Front lines and more with no ill effects.

    On the folding front I go from 8000+ to 3000-4000 PPD while gaming on my main display gpu, while still 8000+ on second card.

    So far I'm looking good to be back online folding Monday morning. Everything appears to be stable and running at full speed. Having a few temp issues, but I should have that sorted out over the next 24-48hrs. Unfortunately with the new motherboard, my CPU doesn't fit it's cooler properly resulting in higher than normal load temps (72C currently vs 58C previously). Will be picking up a Corsair Hydro H50 after work today, which should take care of the temps as the northbridge cooler will no longer be in the way of the CPU fan.

    Unless the laptop has a removable GeForceGo card, there is no upgrade path.

    Interesting, thanks for the tip. If this is the case I'll continue folding while gaming. I'll try it out later and see if I notice any performance dips.

    On a day with considerable gaming, I'll lose 2k points per day. So instead of 7000ish, maybe around 5000ish.

    I wonder to myself if it's a good idea to game and fold at the same time. My 260 and powersupply haven't given me a single reason to fear yet...so I guess I'll find out sooner or later :)

    I have to be careful when doing anything...lol. Welp, folding has been impossible for the last week or so, and currently I'm still unable to restart. I picked up and installed a Corsair Hydro H50 lastnight. Thus far, the temps have improved slightly at stock clocks, but seeing as how I have no intention of running at stock clocks, this is nothing major. I'll be stress testing for the next few days and with any luck will be back folding soon....just need reasonable temps first and 68C just isn't doing it for me...

    my i5 hits 65C @4.2 and i think thats a fair temp some people worry about temps too much, as long as it isnt something ridiculous should be ok

    The problem I'm having is, my target clock is 3.8ghz...hitting 68C at stock clocks means I'll be extremely close to the thermal limit when I get to 3.8ghz. I'll have all temp issues corrected by next monday though. I just need to figure out what to set my case fans to for maximum performance of the H50. Also need to cure the TIM....which takes a few days.

    This is a good looking graph.

    Sadly, I had to temporarily put my folding on hold due to issues beyond my control. I also had to switch from my GTX275 to a GT220 that was actually purchased for an HTPC. Hopefully it won't be too long before I'm folding again....
