You can have the account auto-login if you'd like. Then it will have a password for the things that need a password, but otherwise you'd never notice.

Hi guys, I started folding a few days ago after downloading the standard client. Quickly added the GPU client and then started thinking about setting up SMP.

The directions from the Stanford site weren't the greatest so looked around and found overclock.net and the brilliant how-to guide for installing SMP. Really impressed by the community and quickly saw the benefits of switching from 0 to 37726, which I did straight away. Joined the forum yesterday and now here I am making my first post after my initial intro!

As you can see my system is fairly modest, but seems to be running fairly well. according to hfm.net I'm currently getting 1343 PPD on the CPU and 1322 PPD on the GPU. The cores currently running are GRO-A3 and GROGPU2 respectively. Does that mean I'm running the best clients/cores for my system? Will I be able to get the bonuses? (Not really sure what that means or how that works anyway).

I'm planing on upgrading and oc'ing my system in the near future, so was hoping I could get some help and advice with that. First I'll be improving the cooling and adding a better PSU, and then hopefully getting a new graphics card not long after that - looking forward to seeing what mid-high range Fermi products have to offer. Next year plan on building a new system, keeping existent one as 24/7 folder/file server/backup.

I'm Looking forward to learning more about F@H, computing, oc'ing as well as getting to know you all!

A new folder already completely set up?! I'll be out of a job soon.

But seriously, you're running the best clients/WU you can right now, so well done and welcome to the team.
As for bonuses, once you complete 10 a2/a3 WUs, you start getting bonus points.

Finally it seems like my folding is working properly. Now I've got my machine running this 24 / 7 - both cpu and gpu. Thank you zodac for all the help and support!

http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/...&teamnum=37726

Will both my GPU and CPU stats get loaded there?

The stanford link only shows you having 1 client. Make sure both clients have the same username and team number, and that link will show you both.

A better way to track your stats is HERE

Hi everyone,

Just joined overclock.net and got started folding with my new rig

I'm reasonably comfortable with tech terms, but haven't had the time to look into folding before now. My rig is for constant business use, so not actually optimized for 24/7 folding or anything, just looking to contribute as much as I can.

I've been running the gpu2 client mostly, and the occasional windows SMP client. On average the two folding clients run for 8-10 hours a day, and for the past week I've been averaging around 1500-2000 PPD.

Just wanted a feedback if this is what is to be expected given my setup. I know that ATI cards are at a disadvantage, but is there anything I can do to maximize the return?

Btw, here's my stats so far:

http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...hp?s=&u=502201

Enjoying my time here, great community and fantastic support!

Cheers,
AIS

I am not new to folding, but I just started back up a couple days ago. I don't game anymore so now my sig rig folds 24-7. My current rank is 270,129, I hope to really climb up the rank.

Hi there.

I'll quote a post I used earlier:

GPU2 Clients:

I'll start you off with the GPU client for now. Yes, you can fold on the 5770. You download the client from here (first client in the list). Download/install it, make a shortcut from the install location (C> Program Files (x86)> Folding@Home> Folding@Home-gpu) to the desktop. Rightclick> Properties. In the "Target" field add a space and -forcegpu ati_r700, so it looks like this:

Quote:
~.exe" -forcegpu ati_r700
Run the client, and enter your own username, and team number 37726. You can get a passkey here.

If running the GPU client on an ATI card, use this .reg file to lower CPU usage.

SMP Clients:

Get this SMP client (direct link). You'll need to follow this guide to get the client up (the guide doesn't mention the passkey, but enter the one you applied for earlier). You can use this client on any CPU (whether on an x32 or x64 OS); I'll make a note for the i7 afterwards.

You will get bonus-enabled WUs; however, you won't qualify for those WUs until you complete 10 WUs first. After that you'll start rolling in the points.

HFM.NET - Client Monitoring:

You now get HFM.NET. Once installed, click Clients> Add a new Client. Go to the following locations for the clients:
SMP - C> Program Files (x86)> Folding@Home Windows SMP Client V1.01
GPU2 - C> Users> [Your User]> AppData> Roaming> Folding@home-gpu

Now, once all clients are set up, go to File> Save Configuration, and save the config file somewhere out of the way.
Now go to Edit> Preferences> Startup> Under Configuration File, check the box and browse to the config file you saved.

i7 -bigadv Folding:

Now, i7 needs a bit more thought to it. When properly set up, it gives the best points for a single piece of hardware, because of the big points bonuses it gets. I would say that 16 hours would barely be enough to complete the WU for the bonuses (faster completion = bigger points bonus). The i7 will need to have HT enabled, and a good OC is recommended. If you think you could folding on that i7 close to 20 hrs a day, check this guide.

Otherwise, the SMP folding would be enough for the i7. You'll finish those WUs off pretty quickly.

That's it, instructions finished. If you have an questions, go ahead and ask.

Nice to have you back. If you used to fold, you're probably using the normal SMP client (or maybe even a VMware). Take a look at the guide for the SMP2 WU above; the bonus points make CPU folding much more competitive than it used to be.
