If you just install the application and run it under Windows or Mac or whatever you're currently running, it'll just work like an application and you'll be good to go.  More advanced users with dedicated hardware, or who already don't run Windows, often run on Linux.  But there is no need to do anything other than install and set up the application.

Oh okay, I just saw some pictures of the windows GUI and saw that some of the lists to do. One said 3.5 hours and the other said like 13.5 hours. Let’s say I start running the 3 hour one. Will I be able to use the pc during the time or not??

I think you're seeing time to complete a work unit.  As long as you set the slider to medium (the default) or light for folding power, you should be able to continue to use the computer as normal while it is working away.

Yes, you are able to pause the work units and give a bit of rest to your computer (not that it needs anyway if airflow is good).

 

And what you saw is estimated time to finish for specific work units.

 

You have a deadline which is usually 3 days and sometimes up to 7 or even 14 days for some work units.

 

You should read the thread that was posted few messages back and some tutorials from F@H or/and on youtube.

@Favebook Would running my system on this power supply be okay for the folding tasks.

Specs- Ryzen 5 3600

gtx 1660 super

B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC

This is the power supply- https://www.microcenter.com/product/485311/powerspec-550-watt-80-plus-bronze-atx-non-modular-power-supply

Everyone was saying how this is a cheap tier D power supply and I should return it. But I am already past the 30 day return policy so I can’t.

A good rule of thumb is never cheap out on a power supply.  I will cheap out on just about anything but i will always over buy a bit on power supply.

If you're comfortable running your system normally with longer gaming sessions, folding will be fine.  Your system won't pull more power folding than the hardware components can already pull.  If you're worried, set the power target of your GPU to about 80% and you'll be nicer to your PSU than how you've been gaming currently.

Okay thx. I just wanted to make sure you guys wouldn’t say how Folding would ruin the cheap psu or something like that.

It will be fine. But I'd suggest you selling that PSU on open market for 80% of what you paid (ore more if possible) and then buying a new, better one.

I wouldn't be worried about it bursting in flames any time soon, but it's better to have a good PSU than to think about it when you go to sleep.

 

I had really good luck in my country where I bought a lot of 800-1600W PSUs when mining craze was at it's lowest, and when PSU shortage hit few months ago, I sold them for almost 1.5x the price I paid.

Can I know how would I make my lap to full load for F@H? 
It only takes 11% of CPU even I selected full power

Seems it might be just some of the latest WU. I'm having the same problem on my current WU, I wasn't several days ago.

I don't think so. Can't really control the WUs you get, so just wait for your PC to finish the current ones and hopefully the next ones won't have this same issue.

I have asked @jakkuh_t to try and get a couple.

 

@RILEYISMYNAME @James any chance for some shout outs for the event! 

 

Also will be getting back to any DMs sometime this afternoon. Just got some good news about the charity I run but it means I'm going to end up being hammered over the next couple months betweek work, the charity and folding! It's nice to be busy!

I'm seeing similar things, I think people firing FAH back up is taking up some WU, which is great.

 

I actually jumped out of the beta queue, and had a steady stream of WU on my one system for like 2 months without touching anything or ever pause/unpausing!  Which was nice for my lazy @$$.  But looks like I need to start refreshing again!
