As for folding, it's going along pretty well despite the fact that it's like desert out here. I'm thinking of overclocking this 3800+ to somewhere 2.7Ghz maybe, then I could produce roughly 2000pts+ a week. This 3800+ venice has the potential to go up to 3.0Ghz but it would need some crazy water cooling and other stuff as well. But anyhow, it'll say 2.4Ghz until I'll get some big funding. I'm planning to subscribe to 1.5mbits line, do you guys think it worths it? Or should I save up to upgrade PC parts.

Anyhow, it's great to see you guys folding along well. Take care and keep that up.
Hi shajbot,

That's a good question. Once you go cable/DSL you'll never go back to dial up. The real question is: How much do you surf the web?? If it's a lot then cable/DSL would be the way to go, but it is addictive. THings load so much better and faster...

As for your overclock. The 3800 can be pushed to 2.7 on air?? That would be a nice OC, but temps right now for you might be a problem unless you have A/C.
My 12% overclocks have really boosted my output, but all of the rigs are running 50-52degC and that's with A/C. I don't know how long I'll go this route. At least thru the weekend, but it's getting hot here in Michigan as well.

As for folding. This will be the best week for me, Ever!! Hopefully over 3,000 points this week. Then I'll have to back the OCing down and wait for my 3500.
Take care and stay cool, :-)

Hi peroxide,

Sorry to hear your ill, but it's great having you back in the forum! I hope you get to feeling better soon...

Yes our team is doing really well. Our second team - Team_Folders_Inc is doing well also. This team will pass HellgY, later today! I'll be adding my P4 2.53 @2.86 rig to this team when I get my AMD64 3500 up and running next week...

Take care and get well soon, :-)

Hi cappy,

Sorry I misunderstood. My bad! I'll post the stepping here when I get the cpu probably next Moday according to newegg. All the parts and pieces are in place for the "new" folding rig.
Just picked up a case for "free" at our local computer shop. A customer left it and never came back. The owners have no monies invested, so they gave it to me. It's a nice metallic silver with 4 case fans in it. So what the heck?

As for the parts: AMD64 3500 (E3), Gigabyte GA-K8U-939 M/B, 1Gb (2x512)Crucial Billistix DDR, 160Gb SATA Hard drive, Antec 500w PSU, Joe blow case (free!) and either my X850Pro video card (repaired) or GeForce2 MX400 card. Don't know if I want to "waste" the video card on this folding rig. Don't really need it.... I think. Any other thoughts??

No sound card or sound, no games, no "extras" like Word, Excel, etc. Just the Win XP/SP2, with antivirus/firewall and F@H... Plain and simple!

I'm hoping I can keep up the 425 points a day average I currently have. That would equate to about 3,000 points per week total with my 3 rigs... This folding for the cause has gotten very addicting to me. And I love chatting with you guys.

Take care and have a nice weekend if I don't talk to you by then, :-)

Not gonna do Linux? Linux is incredibly minimalist in the scheme of things, and it's pretty much turn it on and forget it. Also, you'd probably be able to save a few bucks, unless you have the cash for it and want to use it. Still no overclocking for me, although I'm tempted to crank it up to a 333MHz FSB and see what happens, as that speed will reset the speeds for the PCI and AGP... Maybe it's best to get the better CPU and watch for a motherboard or get a motherboard and leave the CPU.

Hi LBN,

I looked into the different Linux versions. Red Hat or Novell seemed interesting, but I don't really want to fiddle with it... So I'll just use my "OEM" version of Win XP for new computer setups and the SP2 disk I have and go from there. Thanks for giving me the idea though..

Take care, :-)

On a sidenote, I figured out why I've been getting random reappearances of my folding post bit. Apparently, I still haven't completely uninstalled the console version, so it folds whenever I reboot the computer.

Ok, talk to me...

Is it that easy?? I've checked around here and nobody sells the OS on a load up disk. I see the OS sells for about $35.00, but I have an OEM version of Windows XP. (Don't ask where I got it. Because I could tell you, but then have to shoot you!) LOL

Where would you suggest I purchase a OS disk for a "new" system. What file system does Linux use?? The HDD I have is formatted for NFTS. So... talk to me.

Take care, :-)

Linux is really simple to install, as long as one of your computers has either a CD burner or a DVD burner. You just download the .iso files from someplace like linuxiso.org, and burn it using some sort of image burning utility (i.e. not the windows utility) like Roxio to burn the image to disk, and then you can boot off of it and install. My personal favorites have been SUSE and Ubuntu, both of which have new versions out that are supposed to be good. I'd have linux installed, except it doesn't like my graphics card usually (the only exception so far is ARK Linux, which is alright). However, if you use that GeForce2, you'd probably be alright as far as compatibility goes. Linux uses its own file system (some distros have their own proprietary one), but the install discs are very helpful usually and they'll tell you how to partition the drive properly. Once you have Linux installed with a KDE graphical interface (most distros use either that or GNOME, which is also good), it's very similar to Windows and Mac OSX (kinda between the two). You still have Firefox and those utilities, and you just install things a little bit differently as far as I know. If you want to know more, you could talk to Jester or one of the other Linux users on the site.

Linux is actually a very stable & security environment for simple tasking like web server or folding site, and you don't get usual virus or spyware infection because hackers too busy to write them for Windows LOL. There're a few but you'd be very unlikely to get one.

I've never installed or ran Linux myself so I can't give much info. But I do have a server running Linux. I have tried to run F@H on the server it was quite easy (like console version) so you can be at rest that folding should work. Other than reading a lot trying to get familiar with the OS, it's a good and quite friendly OS anyway. Let us know what you decide and good luck with whatever you do.
