Folding on PS3

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm not asking how to fold on my PS3. It's fairly straight forward. Download the program from the menu, run it. Simple. What I'm asking is how many of you do fold on your PS3.

So, how many of you fold on your PS3? I'm curious, wondering if there are any things one should worry about. I've been folding off and on with my PS3, but I've yet to let it fold constantly, unsure if there is anything I should look out for. While I don't know what could happen with 24/7 (or at least folding when ever I'm not playing it, never shutting it down) folding, I'm doing alright folding when I head to bed. Some points are better then no points.

I have a slim PS3 fyi.

I got a Q8200, GTX580, and a partial 5770 (Stupid client gets failing) dedicated to folding. As much as I would love to, I play games on it and don't like the 1k PPD it gives off as to me, not worth the trouble off leaving it on. If I feel like I'm bored gaming on it, I'll fold till something graps my attention.

But at last Killzone 3 and Knigt's Contract Tuesday... not going to happen

I folded 1 WU on my PS3 then discovered it gave me around 1000 points, so I stopped as I didn't want my PS3 on 24/7 getting me bugger all points.

Odd. I've only been getting a couple hundred points from my PS3.

they can't fold for peanuts. it's not worth it imo. you'll just wear down your ps3. you don't want your ps3 to ylod. I had 2 ps3's that ylod'ed and I tell you it's not a pleasant feeling

I love how everyone is avoiding the question for the most part. Only one guy mentioned any realistic reason why. I'm not in it for points, and it sure as hell folds better then anything else I have at the moment.

So, can I get any real reasons? How does it wear down the ps3?

I do it when I'm tired of playing, I leave it folding for a couple of hours. Never had any problems.

So... why not?

it is horribly inefficient and gets very hot. it would be more worth it to fold on your gpu when your not using it
