Is folding like bitcoin mining but for different purposes ?
I'm one of those people who can't stand not unlocking stuff in video games and I feel like unlocking atleast a 1million point folding badge and the participation thing xD.
How fast would I reach the million ?
It should fold pretty well. I'm not entirely sure how fast you would reach a million, but it would definitely be pretty quick (maybe 2 months?) with both the CPU and GPU folding. If you decide to fold, be sure to enter the September Foldathon
. Folding basically folds proteins to help researchers understand why certain diseases are caused, there's plenty to read about it in the folding subforum.
On another note, I just tested the temps with my D5 strong set at 24v and 12v and have some temperature reading info to share.
CPU - 69C
Core 0 - 67C
Core 1 - 64C
Core 2 - 67C
Core 3 - 69C
Average - 67.2C
CPU - 67C
Core 0 - 63C
Core 1 - 62C
Core 2 - 63C
Core 3 - 67C
Average - 64.4C
Drop going from 12V to 24V - 2.8C
Note that since this is a very restrictive loop, adding more power to the pump is mostly unnecessary. In a more restrictive loop, adding more voltage to the D5 strong (PMP-450S) can be very beneficial.Edited by superericla - 8/30/12 at 12:47pm
