Just installed it on my home server.  I haven't folded full time in a long, LONG time (Playstation 3 era), but I've got a headless home server with Debian Linux, 16GB of RAM and an old 6 core AMD Phenom II that mostly sits around idling unless we're watching something on Plex or playing on the Minecraft server.

 

Got it up and running as a system service that starts automatically at boot, but with a lower priority than our other things.  I may just go ahead and leave it running 24/7.  That CPU only draws 95 watts TDP max and I've got a 125 watt wraith cooler on it, so it does good to hit 49-50 degrees under full load across all 6 cores.

 

Here's hoping I can contribute a little something to the LTT team, and the Folding project as a whole, 🙂

is it really worth using the cpu? it draws so much power and makes so much heat and is very slow. the gpu is so much better. 

should I fold only using the gpu?

That depends on what you think is worth it or not, personally I run BOINC on my CPUs alongside folding

Is there still a requirement to complete a certain number of work units before you are eligible for Quick Return Bonuses? Or was that never a thing and I'm just crazy? 🤔

I'm sure there is, although not 100% on the specifics. @Gorgon any input?

10WUs from here

"What are the qualifications for the QRB?

The bonus is applied for users who use a passkey, have successfully returned at least 10 bonus-eligible WUs, have successfully returned 80% or more of assigned WUs, and returned the unit before its Timeout (formerly Preferred Deadline). Bonus points do not apply to partial returns."

Ahh! I thought so! I just couldn't remember where I read it. Thanks.
 

If that's the case then that means that this will grow even more once people start to complete the 10 WUs and become eligible for the QRB points, assuming people are setting up passkeys.

I set mine up, figured it would help make sure stats were tracked for me properly.

So I just downloaded FAH to try it out, and it says that it'll take my CPU (R5-3600X) 7 days to finish a WU and my GPU (1080 Ti) 10 days to finish a WU. How would I ever hope to finish 20 WUs in the 35 day period this event will run?

The ETAs aren't accurate when you first start, the first WUs are also used as a benchmark so the ETAs are more accurate later. Let the first WUs finish, takes about 30 minutes or so then check again.
