I am back to folding again on my current rig - specs are below and not too bad, just installed a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo so im a bit happier about leaving the CPU folding for a longer period of time due to the fact its running 10C cooler than when it was on the stock cooler!
I am thinking about maybe next year/ongoing project to build a small folding rig that I can setup and leave running and not worry about it lol I have a few ideas of what I might want to do, it will be a low budget, basically as cheap as possible but powerful enough to actually be worth it, here are a few options:
Barebones PC with multicore CPU but small hard drive and no graphic card
Barebones PC with very basic processor but with 2 x graphics cards
Twin CPU (or more) server motherboard (seen some dual opteron boards going for £20!)
What route do you think I should look at going down? I know that there are changes for the bigadv WUs going on, so im guessing that I would need some fairly beefy cores to be able to fold those to get the best PPD. Would be best with a lower clock speed and a few CPUs or just 1 multicore CPU at a higher clock speed?
What does everyone suggest I should do and I will start reserching!
