DuckieHo since your brains seems to be so amazingly high-powered, why don't you install a small Linux distro on it and fold with it?

You would be the #1 folder in no time...

13*12 = 156W so if you say 20*12 that means 240W.

157w is the maximum thermal power needed for cooling... basically, how much energy the card will use. This is for ONLY the card and not for the entire system.
