I came back to folding at home a couple of weeks ago with a new PC i built.
I was amazed at the difference in performance since I did it 6 years ago.
While I was folding with my new PC, I did not manage to sell any used components of my old pc, so I started reading a little bit more about folding and other things.
I live in Canada, so it's quite cold, and I read in many places that the actual watt consumption of a computer is the output of heat. I said to myself... meh, why not use those watts on components I can't sell instead of my wall heater?
So I setup my old computer as a space heater. A good 650 watts are going in and it's doing it's job as a heater plus it's helping science! I'll shut it down when it's summer time and bring it back up next winter until it dies I guess
My new PC is running the advanced client for folding at home and it's connected to my old PC. I just followed the setup process that's on their website. Wasn't much trouble.
I'm taking the time to write all that because, after I setup old computer #1, I also setup old computer #2 and ended up shuting it down after a day.
The reason is the performance is not really worth it on old computer #2.
New computer is ryzen 3700x + 2070 super. Gives about 1 600k points per day
Old computer #1 is 4770k overclocked at 4.5Ghz + 2x 780 ti. Gives about 550k points per day but only about 30k are from the CPU.
Old computer #2 wasn't able to complete a work unit before it expired. Was about 1.8k points per day.
Your CPU is much better than the CPU from my old computer #2, but I don't expect you to crunch that many numbers with it, especially without a GPU.
I heard that boinc is a much better source of number crunching for CPU, you might want to check it out.
