Note on Prizes: When claiming a prize you will need to have a screenshot of your machine folding during the CC with progress greater than 50% (>50%) for the WU that is folding. Also include a notepad or similar shot of your OCN username. If you think you will look suspicious (first time folder or new to the forum), including 2 screenshots would be helpful. We want to make sure only people who participated win prizes.

How do I start? I'm confused!
Visit the [email protected] Helping Hands Group to get some one on one help.

A few guides that are useful in getting started are:
How to setup SMP (CPU Folding)
How to setup GPU Folding

Still confused?
PM me or zodac and we can get you going in the right direction.

A Little History:

4 years ago the Monkey Federation challenged a group of monkey's from overclockers to a race... this was all started by the chief instigator KingFish... many at MaximumPC folding jumped in as well as others on the opposing team to make it alot larger and more fun than it was originally intended. MaximumPC won that race thanks to the support of the fellow folders there.

The next year turned out to be even larger and the amazing folders at overclockers worked hard and beat MaximumPC to the finish line...

The following year... two other teams were invited to the party... the [H]orde and Overclockers Australia... needless to say it made it even more of a fun time and the wu's completed and the interest involved increased dramatically from all the teams with MPC winning the third year.

OCN joined the Challenge for the first time last year, racing out of the gates from the start, finishing with a strong lead, followed by EVGA, also in their first CC. We are back at it again this year, lets show the same support and determination that we did last year.

Remember everyone, here's a time to show everyone who's boss

G'luck everyone. Hopefully I'll get my PSU back from RMA soon enough to fold with it.

I just signed up but don't see my name on the list... does it take a bit to update?

EDIT: yes, looks like it takes a minute to appear.
