it was a 400 framer

took me a few days because i dont fold 24/7, it takes my cpu temp from an idle of around 35 to 52 and uses alot of power so i keep paused while i use my comp, i let it run overnight if i leave my comp on for some other reason

anyways im on frame 80 or a 125 one now, and it doesnt matter to me what place i'm in im just helping out

Congrats on your first WU!


Have you posted to the "Folders: Check in Here" thread so that you can get your rank listed in your stats? It will take at least a couple days to get it in there but Admin will get to it (awfully busy person, Admin is).

Just an FYI...you don't need to pause it while doing other things on your PC...it automatically subordinates itself to any other resource demands. It will only use what is available after everything else has taken their share. I haven't seen performance issues when I am gaming or doing anything else.

Finished my first project, 250 framer on my xp2400. poor little athlon was struggling with overheating when the ball bearings on my fan died..running an 80mm fan with a duct tape shroud over the thermaltake heasink, dropped my temps to mid 40's =) Kept on folding even during the crisis
