So I started folding...?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Im new to the forum and folding@home. I looked at the website and seems like a good way to contribute other than donating. I downloaded the software and joined the OCN team. Its got my CPU usage at 100% so I guess that normal. Just a couple questions tho...

How do the points get recorded? And do they get automatically passed on to the team leader, if there is one?
Can you fold faster/better? Or is it just one rate of folding but clearly the 90 million point-ers' have been doing it a lot longer...

Thnx

Welcome to the best team ever!
First off, fill this out.

The points go directly to the team, there isn't a team leader. The best way to improve your points per day is by tweaking your OS and increasing your clocks on your hardware.

edit ^dirty pirate hooker beat me to it

throw your system info in so we can tell you which flags and what not you should use, also if you want to increase your points, you gots to overclock

the points get uploaded to stanford's website (assuming) and then are recorded on EOC's website, so you can check them out

When you include your username, passkey, and team # in the setup, this ties the points you upload to you and your team. Did you follow the guide in the sticky? Everything is explained there.

And yes, faster CPUs/GPUs will complete work units faster and therefore give you points faster. Folding SMP on a multi-core CPU will also give you bonus points depending on how fast you complete the SMP work units.

If you'd like to join our team, you should fill out your system specs so we can help you get started.

^ DOH! I got beaten twice...

Can you fold faster/better? Or is it just one rate of folding but clearly the 90 million point-ers' have been doing it a lot longer...

Thnx
Those guys with 90 million plus have been folding for awhile and also have access to huge folding farms (lots of pcs folding).
