First WU from Folding!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So guys, I've finally started folding for the pass few days and my first Work Unit is finally done! Project 7809 sure is huge...
Well, i'm using defualt SMP which is 4 and using my 24/7 pc to fold.

Using Build 7.2.9, and so far only 1895 points

Anyhow, my team is 0...haven't joined one yet, so can someone tell me how does joining a team differ to folding yourself?
Do you get any prizes or what?

And is there a way to fold with only 1 or 2 cores? instead of using all 4?

Thanks

Hi keymaster07,

 

overclock.net's folding team number is 37726, so you'll want to update that if you'd like to fold for OCN.  You will also want to generate a passkey for your username, you can do that here:

 

http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py

 

Once you have your passkey, and fold 10 Work Units on it, you'll get bonus points for completely the WUs faster.

 

On v7.2.9 You can specify the number of threads you'd like to fold right from the FAHControl configuration, you'll have to go into advanced, or expert mode, I forget exactly what its called. Then Configure, then Slots, then in the SMP section you can specify either 1, or 2.

post #3 of 16
If you can't see the dropdown for Advanced/Expert in FAHControl, you may have to expand the window to see the dropdown.
post #4 of 16

Oh, and once you get folding for team 37726, if you're interested in prizes, there is a monthly 2 day Fold-A-Thon, with the chance to win prizes. 

 

Here's the schedule:  http://www.overclock.net/t/1347654/2013-foldathon-schedule/

I think you found your answer already, but I'll answer here regardless.  The Fold-A-Thon's you just have to sign up once, and then participate each month for a chance to win.  Then there is also a monthly prize drawing for folding for OCN, which you would be eligible for automatically.

 

If you get into folding, and want to have a dedicated folding rig, there is a OCN Team Competition in which 21 teams duke it out for bragging rights / small monetary prizes.  Each team still folds for 37726, and consists of 6 folders in different hardware categories.  I have a link in my sig with more info, but that's the basics of it.

Glad to participate!

Btw, do you guys know about the Sapphire Edge VS8 mini pc?
http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=6&gid=1186&sgid=1190&pid=1747&psn=&lid=1&leg=0

I'm planning to get this pc and replace it for my 24/7 rig, i'm trying to lower elec bill as much as possible, and this pc uses about 40w+/- on load.
So I was wondering if its able to Fold a few WU a month?
Competition isn't what i'm trying to achieve, but more with participation etc.
And with this I can fold with both CPU and GPU.

Thanks

I don't know much about it, but it looks like it would make a nice little HTPC type box.  AMD Trinity rigs are good at that.  It wouldn't really be great for folding, but it would still be able to complete some WUs.
