What you'll need to begin:
3) An AMD GPU, with Catalyst v11.1+. Or a CUDA supported nVidia GPU (list here), with 266.xx drivers or newer.
Now, install the client to the default location (Or specify your own location if you prefer to install it to a non-OS drive):
And then Finish.
2) Next, your web browser should open to the F@H client initial configuration. Click 'Configure Identity', then enter:
• Donor: [Your Folding Name] (Check here to see if your preferred name is in use.)
• Team: 37726
• Passkey: [The passkey you requested earlier]
Click Save, and the client will start folding on 'Medium Power'.
You should see something similar to this:
That is the 'Web Control' interface, you should also see a F@H system tray icon.
As I mentioned by default the client initially starts at Medium Power, here is an explanation of the Power Slider in the Web Control:
The slider has six preset positions:
|Off||Folding is disabled|
|Idle light||Folding will proceed at a reduced speed only when your computer becomes idle.|
|Idle||Similar to Idle Light, but tries to get the maximum productivity from your computer only when you are away.|
|Light||Folding proceeds at a reduced speed at all times, but productivity and system utilization increases when you are away.|
|Medium||Much more productive than Light. This setting is recommended for most users.|
|Full||Contribute as much as possible. This setting may cause some machines to get hot or the fan to run very hard. If this is a problem simply move this slider to a lower setting.|
Now I always use 'Full' because I like my GPUs to fold primarily. To me the 'Web Control' isn't very useful, and I prefer the 'Advanced Control'.
To open 'Advanced Control' right-click the F@H System Tray icon, and select 'Advanced Control'.
You should see something like this:
Go ahead, and move the slider to Full to fold on the GPUs as well as the CPUs full time if you like. If you want to remove the CPU, and just fold on GPUs, in 'Advanced Control' click 'Configure' -> slots tab -> Highlight the CPU slot, and click 'Remove', then save.
