    OK. I've had a conversation with Buck Nasty, the F@H moderator. He has agreed to promote a joint project, where the F@H members join WCG and use their CPU power to help us. In return, the majority of WCG members must agree to fold with their GPU's. If this works out, both of our teams just got exponentially stronger. Please post here, whether or not you'd be willing to do this. Please respond asap, as I'd like to get this going. Thanks!

    For those wanting info on Folding@home, here's some links for you:

    We need some info such as a link to the client, which cards are best for folding and how you go about setting up the folding client while running the wcg client. I know I left something out.

    I'm sure some of my video cards would volunteer if asked.:D

    I've noticed we already have some members from both teams helping out.

    @Paulie and Buck-I think Fit and myself have tried to sweet talk some TPU folders into lending their CPU powers to crunch (also for TPU) but with little success. I for one have switched my CPUs to crunch but my GPUs still fold (Fit could be an ass sometimes). I'm glad to see this "merger" and the fact that some XS members are willing to help out;):respect:

    i would fold with my gpu except doing so completely wrecks the performance on my box, even tho WCG doesnt even if its set to 100%

    I've heard this is related to gpu not having the ability to use priority when doing things, if thats not the case and anyone knows anything lemme know, if it doesn't hurt my performance i will be happy to.

    I'm kinda in the same boat. I only have my one HD3870 and I'm concerned about frying it.
