I believe it is important that during the times of outlining and appreciating the efforts of high rankings we reflect on why we are folding. We give thanks to those that made it possible and treasure each and every single person that pushed and folded against this invisible enemy.
Coronavirus has claimed over 100,000 lives across the globe, infecting over two million people. This is why we fold, this is the reason we have been brought together. Only in times of such hardship do we see the best and worst of mankind. People from all walks of life doing what they can to help, volunteering, folding, shopping and delivering for their communities, singing, cheering to our key workers. This is the embodiment of humanity, this is how our generation should be remember during this crisis. We are strong, united, resolute. We will not let ourselves be overcome by fear for as long as we have each other. So, go fourth caring with respect, with patience, with tolerance, with kindness in your heart, because it is surely needed in today's world.
Before we get into the rankings there are a few things I want to mention;
1. Although I have been the fact of this event I want everyone to take a moment to give thanks to @Metallus97 for his amazing contribution with the FAQ, tech support and help with the datasheet, @j1philli who has been a tremendous help with validating entries on the sheet and finally @leadeater who wrote the script we used for ensuring smooth data collection.
2. I'd like everyone to head over and donate a few dollars to Jason at EOC, his servers must have taken a beating with all the traffic we have thrown at the guy over the last few weeks or so. You can either use this PayPal link or find the PayPal donation button on the EOC Website on the right. Don't forget to include a note so he knows it came from team LTT, mine said 'With love for LTT, thanks for everything you do.'
3. I'd like to give a personal thanks to everyone who has been understanding of my own health during this event, it was hastily thrown together which lead to more issues than usually found!
4. Finally I'd like to ask that you continue to fold, for the benefit of all of us, even if it is in a far more limited capacity moving forward.
It has been an exciting event, despite the darkness that looms over the world currently many of us, including myself have found a little lightness on the event thread, this doesn't have to end, we do have a Folding Community Board in which you can continue the conversation in all its glory! You can find that Here!
I want to give thanks to everyone who has been involved folding for TeamLTT over the last few weeks, no matter if you are folding only a few points a day or millions, no matter if you signed up to the event or not, your hard work and dedication is appreciated! Don't forget that if you talk about folding on twitter use the hastag #TeamLTT and I will be trying to keep an eye on it, so now, after you have read this post and feel the need to go troll PCMR a little, and lets be honest, after the pitiful attempt to challenge us, you will feel the need. We can all be a little more connected!
In first place, we have @Macaw2000 with an impressive 339,946,109 points warned with 5,613 Work units over the 14 days of the event. He utilised mercenaries well to make a final dash for the throne and now he sits comfortably, in the plush luxury smiling upon those that stand below him.
Second place we have the great oppressor, the disgraced king, @Den-Fi, who failed to take by his throne lost during the great crusades of Folding Month 2019. With 296,964,235 Points achieved with a surprising small 1,444 Work Units it has to be said that he certainly had one of the highest P/WU ratios in the event.
Third place we see is occupied by @walderston, who, given just a little more time could have snatched the silver spot from the fallen king. 237,268,117 Points taken with 1,261 Work Units is nothings to bite your thumb at for sure. But he will be left wondering if he can do better next event!
Fourth place is taken by the veteran @miker07 who has once again proved his worth with 196,425,757 points taken through 2,203 Work units. Forth place is nothing to be ashamed with but it will be interesting to see if he expands his forces by the time folding month comes around.
Fifth place finds @ZombieStew content with his first showing in a LTT Folding event, 145,684,152 Points and 2,079 Work units. He will certainly be looking forward to future events!
Sixth place we have another newcomer, @Unilevers, a fine showing that we hope to see again in the future.
Seventh place is @bafo_ah, another newbie shaking up the team with a good showing.
Eighth place is @wi3si, it will be excited to see if they can muster any more force for the future.
Ninth place can be claimed by @Ayren, who only folded for 13 days should be asking did that one day down cosy them too much?
Tenth place is where we leave this today, @GalaxyNetworks is the proud holder of 10th, the gatekeeper, but will they be bettering themselves next time out.
And here you can find the full set of data including the Prize allocations:- Full Folding Data and Ranks!
If you don't see your name on the list above you either did not sign up for this event or you did not meet the minimum requirements. This event was not eligible for Folding Event Badges, PLEASE DO NOT message me or the team about event badges. For general folding badges use the thread Here!
Now it is time for the prizes!
I was planning to tag each winner but due to the number of prizes and limitation I have recently been made aware of the winning ranks will be listed here and the winners will be tagged in comments to this post. This will ensure all winners get a notification for the tag.
The winners will have 7 working days from the publication of this post to claim the prize, if the prize goes unclaimed it will be added to the community pool for use in future events. In order to claim the Prize you will need to PM me here on the forum, with the subject

Damn, it's been so long since I logged on I didn't even remember I had an account until the account creation told me my email was already in use lol.
I've been trying to keep up with some of y'all, but my hackjob of a "media" machine can barely match my normal gaming rig. It's got my old 7970 and a Vega 56 in 1x slots I hacked the back from so I could fit two at once, with two power supplies and it's in a case that literally appeared at my desk at work one day.
If I could keep them running (the hackjob machine has constant driver hiccups that soft lock the whole system), HFM claims a PPD of 2.1mil. In reality I don't think I've managed to babysit them long enough to crack 1mil/day.
Also I don't know how you guys are undervolting at all. The instant I move any of my 3 machines' GPUs away from factory FAH starts throwing bad results and gives up. I think I lost 3 WUs today while fartzing around.

I took a CPU AIO and drilled holes through the bracket and widened the holes on my Vega64. At 200w (gpu 1703Mhz / Memory 1100Mhz) consistent draw for the last 5-6 days max temp was 61 gpu / 55 memory. Not bad at all. Especially considering my house is a warm 79f / 26c and my computer is under an enclosed desk, lol. The CPU AIO is blowing hot air into the case though, so the GPU AIO is getting that warmer air as well

Big ASS dual CPU boards
MY SR-2 is 2off E5690 and 48GB Ram watercooled sits under 30 at full tilt. (could get 96GB ram in it from what I have read)
SR-X is in geto build so not doing as great. yet to water cool and fill it with ram properly. (think its 128-192GB RAM max)
planning custom case that the pair will sit in.

After digging though my office for random bits, stealing from other systems, sacrificing some parts from a planned ebay part ITX build I started, but had no case for and a little 3D printing and zip ties to fill in the gaps of a makeshift body on a monitor stand, this abomination what brought online.
When powered, its first words to me were "What is my purpose?" and I said "To fold for LTT!", and that is what it is doing ever since...
Meet Creaser, the spare part folding bot!

I've joined! I have a stockpile of old computers and I've installed Linux Mint on to them and got going! I currently have a total of 7 computers folding. 2 are mobile Core 2 Duos, one is a desktop Core 2 Duo, that bare board on the bench is my old server, which is a Xeon 3070, and that computer on the end is an AMD Trinity something... it's got built in Radeon graphics so that helps. I also have my computer on the task, which is a Ryzen 7 2700 paired with an ancient GTX 750 as well as my server, which is a Xeon X3440. I wanted to get some of my really old hardware going like a Slot 1 PIII and a few Celerons, but I don't feel like trying a million old versions of Mint to find one that works just to squeeze out a little more horsepower. I hope this all amounts to something because this is quite the power consumption lol

It's not; the side that the hub is mounted to should be the exhaust side. The fan is there to help feed the GPU and create positive pressure to push the warm air out (it makes sense if you could see the system in the case).
Edit: photos were moved to the cloud so I couldn't find them in my file browser.
