Folding Month 2019 - Help Medical Research with your PC!

Recommended Posts

Posted Original PosterOP

Hey everyone! 馃憢

For the second year in a row, I'm here to talk to y'all about聽Cancer, Alzheimer's, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's.聽They聽are terrible diseases that have had an effect on nearly everyone in one way or another, and we want to help. Researching these conditions is an聽incredibly expensive endeavor, but for many people, donating to fund these causes isn't an option. Thankfully, there is still something we all can do:聽Folding @聽Home

With your gaming PC, laptop, server, or really any computer, you can donate processing power from your CPU or GPU when you're not using them聽to help run calculations on a vast number of medical distributed computation projects. This聽massive shared computational power can聽help researchers learn more about these diseases in an effort to better聽treat them, and it can make a HUGE difference in the fight to conquer them.聽To achieve this huge collaborative effort, Stanford University started developing the Folding @ Home project, all the way back in the year 2000. It's a simple software you can run on your PC that automagically聽uses your processing power when idling聽(or full time if you desire) for the previously mentioned calculations.聽

You can fold with pretty much anything, your dad's old dell prebuilt, a top tier RTX rig, or presumably even a RasPi. Every little bit helps.

In exchange for your valiant processing effort, you can earn points that show off your contribution to find the cures all year round, but for a month out of every year, the Forum community runs a friendly Folding competition.聽Members of the community have donated a bunch of prizes, and you can read about the official forum competition here:聽https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1091921-ltt-official-folding-month-2019/

Note: Signups for the forum competition where you can win the community donated prizes, and a forum badge are open until September 30th at 23:30 BST.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition to the community donated prizes, we've partnered with several vendors to give out even more prizes to participants! Be sure to give each of them a follow as a thank you for their contributions!

    GPU problem solved, one of the voltage settings had been moved...probably by me hitting a key I shouldn't have, derp! All systems go!
