I am going to attempt to generate some sort of video and see if I can post out to PCMR, watercooling, Corsair and EVGA redit groups to see if I can get the users to flip and fold for the event. I am not above soliciting pirates to help with a good cause if they are willing to change flags. (I assume this is OK to do right, like are we above free agents or no?)
 

Intel 10900X and 10850KA. NVIDIA 3090FE and EVGA 3090 K|NGP|N Hydro Copper. 196GB RAM. 2x Corsair AX1200I power supplies, $6K in Corsair Hydro-X Custom cooling all wrapped up in a Phantex Enthoo Elite dedicated to supporting F@H (User ID PEZUI on team LTT! 223518)

Not sure how this little folding event is going to go for me, but I'll be throwing my hat into the ring once again!

I had to let go of my 2080ti box while downsizing for an upcoming move, and the 970 that I managed to coerce back into functioning after it failed during the 2020 folding month finally bit the dust in a more permanent way last week, so that's out, too. I'll be curious to see if I can wiggle my way into the top 10/20 anyway.

Did the event span get shortened? When I looked I'd have had no problem qualifying with 5 days of activity even if I come back from a work trip on the 12th but now I'll need to hope my remote control setup works well...

I think they did get shorter. I do not remember having to fold at least one WU for 5 days for 6 day event.

No it's 7 days. Starts September 10th(00:00 BST) means the 10th is the 1st day and ends September, 16th (23:59 BST) means the 16th is the last day. It's the 00:00 that makes it confusing.

I started to notice more and more user joining events and purposefully only gunning for the min requirements and nothing more, which is why the min requirements have been steadily increases over the years. 

 

P.S. these are the exact same min requirements as last years folding sprint

I only found out about folding last year and love it, properly addicted.  last year I had a 10 year old mac book pro and just scraped the minimum CPU folding. This year I have Upgraded to a 1660ti Ventus OC and I'm flying on the points can't wait for this sprint to start.

Thanks for putting that list of current sign-ups up. Just did a double check and realised I made a typo for my forum username. It should be:

Signed up. Someone remind me when it's about to start as I'll likely forget.
