Thank you guys for doing this. If anyone is interested in the F@H community here. We have a thread dedicated to folders and also post when we are running events like we are now.

 

Here is the thread for our current Folding Month 2018 event:

 

 

Here is the community board:

 

 

And thank you to @jakkuh_t and the rest of the LMG team for bringing awareness to this!

Probably not on my paltry dual cores 

same :( I recently sold my only slightly efficient card at folding. I'cant be bothered for cpu folding.

Next year maybe

Luckily my apartment doesn't charge for electricity. Have my main 1600x/1070 rig folding occasionally and an unused 5500u/m4150 laptop folding full time.

Hey everyone! ?

 

I'm here to talk to y'all about Cancer, Alzheimer's, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's. They're are all terrible diseases that have had an affect on nearly everyone in one way or another, and we want to help. Researching these conditions in an attempt to cure them is an 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: Folding @ 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 to help run calculations on a vast number of distributed computation projects. This massive shared computational power can help researchers learn more about these diseases in an effort to better treat them, and it can make a HUGE difference in the fight to conquer them. 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 uses your processing power when idling (or full time if you desire) for the previously mentioned calculations. 

 

In exchange for your valiant processing effort, you can earn points that show off your contribution to find the cures, in the form of a friendly competition. The LinusTechTips community & forum has had a folding team, number 223518, since 2013 and we'd love for you all to join it!

 

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

 

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

 

To help promote the project we're going to give away a couple awesome prizes! ?

 

#1 - NVIDIA GTX 1080

  • For this GPU, we will be picking someone randomly in the top 100 lifetime folders on the LinusTechTips team. This one will cater a bit to the long time folders.

#2 - Two NVIDIA GTX 1070's

  • For each of these GPUs, we will put up an entry form a week before the end of the month, where you will be able to submit a link to your folding profile as well as a photo of your folding rig and we will select 2 random winners from these submissions.

 

Contest Info:

  Reveal hidden contents

- Winners will be chosen on December 1st, and will have 72 hours to reply, otherwise the prizes will be redrawn.

- The contest is International

 

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

 

The goal for the Folding @ Home project this year is to have 1 million concurrent folders, so get on there and start folding! :D

Also, if you want to sign up for the official LTT Folding month competition, entries close on November 6th, 2018 (this is seperate from the GPU giveaway/contest)

 

Be sure to post photos of your folding rigs, your progress, and any questions below! :D  (We've got a rig running with two 1080s, a 1080 Ti, and a Titan X pascal)

Chrome client is here - http://nacl.foldingathome.org/, very easy to use and I believe it works with chromebooks.

I'd also like to add that we have a BOINC team (Berkley Open Infrastructure Network Computing). BOINC supports a variety of projects, some similar to Folding @ home and completely different ones like analysing asteroids, radio telescope data, proving mathematical concepts etc.

 

So if you can spare a few cpu cycles between gaming and Folding there's a world of scientific projects waiting to be discovered :) 

 

It's also quite interesting to see where your hardware performs best!

Hi,

 

I'd like my "old" i5 4690 and quite very old gtx 580 to get some good use (now I don't use it due to lack of time) for folding.
However I don't get the FAH working.. keep getting this error: "ERROR:WU00:FS00:Exception: Could not get an assignment ID"

 

Any one idea's on how to fix this and help the community with an extra folding pc?

 

Thanks guys!

finding this is also a really good way to test my overclock on the 8600k. Think I need to up my voltage a little more than I thought, not quite stable after about 45mins of folding :D

 

Can kill 3 birds with one stone; contribute to the cause, test my overclock and heat my flat - win win win

My old I7 870 (O/C at 3.52GHz) and my noisy R9290X will give their best to help.

This picture was taken on a cleaning day, sorry for the dust.

Would you like some computer with your cables xD

Yea, I haven't been able to play any games all day. *Looks at PS4 and PS3* Maybe.....

I could honestly use the excuse not to game, but I'll bump it down to light folding power on weekends so I can still play something other than Minecraft.

I wish my computer was good enough for protein folding

Every little bit helps, I'd be folding on my laptop if I didn't need it so dang often.

Ooooh that top 100 drawing got me to finally fix F@H and start again. Problem is I’m 96th and there are going to be people passing me and my 1060... time to throw the 1080 in the server at it.
