What is the Foldathon?

Every month we hold a Foldathon, or FAT for short. The FAT is a mad dash over a 2 day period where we fold on as much hardware as we can get our grubby fingers on and try to amass the most points possible. It is winner takes all. Okay, that's not true, but if you're lucky you might win something, probably not, but you will have made a honorable contribution to the science behind [email protected] What is that science you're probably asking, have a gander over hereto learn more. All units crunched for team 37726 count, even if you can only manage to complete one unit, but if you're already a folder, there's no excuse for not folding for the full 48 hours


How it works:

Sign-up and run [email protected] for Overclock.net (team number: 37726) during the specified times. Those who Fold will be entered into a drawing to win the prizes listed below. If you still don't know what [email protected] is or need some help getting started, feel free to post here, make a thread in the Overclock.net [email protected] Team forum or check this guide: FAHControl v7 for both CPU and GPU

----> SIGN UP HERE <----

You can verify whether or not you're signed up by looking for your name here in the member list.

If you don't submit any points during a Foldathon, you will be removed from the list, this is to push for active participation in the event.

You are required to re-sign up each month for the prize option, this is to hopefully push a little more active participation in the event as well and prevent prizes going to people who aren't active in the community.

When:

August 2018 Foldathon - Monday 20th - Wednesday 22nd - 1200 ET/1600 UTC

----> Countdown to Start <----​

Reminders:

If you would like to be put on a reminder list for all future Foldathons, please join this group: Foldathon Participants
Note: Notifications groups are currently broken, will be added soon™.

Member donated:

- TBD

If you wish to donate a prize, shoot @lanofsong ,@Simmons572 or @axipher a PM

Prizes will be drawn on or around the following Monday after the event.
After accepting a prize in any given monthly folding event, members will sit out two events before becoming eligible for prizes again. This is to hopefully spread the kindly donated items amongst the OCN folding community more fairly.

Whoa, nice to have this back. With any luck, Monday should be the first day since May that I'm folding on two rigs full time, as I'm moving back in for college next year on Sunday. Good timing!

Good to see this coming back. Even without monetary prizes. I was just thinking the other day that not having any sort of competition is hurting the team.
No kidding.
I may fire up the GTX960 for this. If the heat ain't super bad down here during it, so far enduring 82F inside so my electric bill stop being so high.

Just under 3 hours to go! Glad to see all of you back in on this :D

EDIT: Go figure, the moment I leave the house this morning, I realize my AMD folding rig went down. :rolleyes:
At least I will be getting some points at the start of this FaT :eek:

We just adjusted the stream, now 1080P
Oh that note, $1k for 2080 Ti. $200 more for FE model. They better come with some big performance #s to go along with the big price tag.

There were several comments in the live stream thread about price elasticity yet someone said FEs were sold out.:rolleyes:

The foldathon is just in time for us to be passed by overclockers.com :(

Temperatures permitting, I have 3 cards running this week for an average 3 million ppd.

Yeah, that price is nuts.
I think I will site off on upcoming gen for the time moment. I can wait. Did it for Maxwell, did it for Pascal, I have no issue doing it for Turing.
