You could try some aggressive power-saving settings ....

sure you meant ... run start mining bit coins :o   ....

The random probability of a success is worth.... 

I have a 3x GPU machine that's now sitting idle, that I -used- to run during my economy-7 hours. Not worth it any more because of power costs. I did purchase on a whim an ASIC .. but again, mostly uses more power than it generates currency. Better to trade the currency on up-down cycles .. or better still, the stock market. It was an interesting bubble whilst it was around .. but I'm not sure it'll stay the course unfortunately.

Now, a dual-CPU board to do virtual machine compiling on .. now that sounds like a plan .. ;) ;)
