    I'm officially crunching for TPU on my i7 ^_^

    I have a few questions:

    Can I turn off WCG before completing a project without losing the work?
    Why does it require me be connected to the internet?
    Why do more and more projects appear? I only want to do one at a time! D:
    How do I stop it from running during startup?

    Edit: Ignore me I'm an idiot. I confused folding for crunching. I'll do some folding when I RMA my 4870 for a 5770!

    Hi, my name is Chris and I've been folding for 7 days now.
    At first, it started because of a contest hosted by a popular hardware-related website created by a German guy named Otto with an exclamation mark in its name.
    But now.. I just can't stop crunching!

    I have 8 cores @ 4.0Ghz crunching @ WCG
    I have 304 SP's @ 1.5Ghz+ Folding @ FaH

    And I have only began to build computers solely for the purpose of getting those sweet points!
    I keep thinking in terms of dollars/points instead of dollars/frames!
    I go to sleep better because I know that I'm going to get 40,000 points as I sleep!
    I am no longer attached to building a single great computer. Rather, I think in terms of owning my very own farm and using its computational prowess to aid the rice-loving, cancer-hating people of the internet!
    This addiction is scaring me. I feel like I have a new purpose in life and that it's almost completely benevolent and altruistic.
    I just wish these rigs had some sort of value aside from their worth in points.. for when we've cured all the diseases in the world..

    Someone help me?

    Okay, honestly, I think this craze will end eventually and I'll have a lot of short plastic-encrusted, metallic friends and months of fun and positivity to look back onto.
    But I AM going to be building my ultimate i9-GT300 rig in 2010 and I WILL break it in by achieving the world record in PPD on it!

    hi everyone, im mosheen and im an addict...
    ...to crunching/folding.

    Just got my new i5 rig and i cant wait for F@H gpu3 client to unleash my 5850.
    (wheres the beta version??)

    Been visiting this site and just recently started crunching/folding.
    I have a big problem with heat and living on a tropical island doesnt help.
    so far my 5850/i5 rig has been awesome.

    I'm just running milkyway@home and F@H together(got spare SPs for processing) until gpu3 client's out.

    Hello,
    Started folding a couple of days ago, I have two rigs folding at the moment. One is a core i7 960 DO running @4.0Ghz with a gtx285, its folding on CPU and GPU cooled with water. I also have a Q9400 running @ 3.8Ghz quad with a GTX 285 air cooled also folding on both CPU and GPU. I'm a network Tech working for a technical college (TSTC Waco, TX). I'm currently building another machine that will have a Q6600 quad and a gtx 275 in it and it will be folding on cpu and gpu also. I fold 24/7 on all of my machines.
    I've been reading Techpowerup for over a year now and just decided to join last month.
    Love the site and the people on it.

    Hi

    I'm Michael and I´m am alco, ups foldoholic.

    It began a few days ago with just a 9800 GTX+ and who knows where it will end. Just ordered a GTX260 OC to a shaders clock of 1466MHz. I hope it will add in excess of 7000 PPD to my 4000-5000 realised PPD.

    My folding has ruined my family live. Just this morning my wife thought - nice the PC is on, I log on => crash. I thought she learned it the first time she did it, but no. 4 hours of idle time until I got up and found out. After a brief fight I had to make up for lost time and ordered the 260. And told her to use one off own two PC´s.

    Hi all.
    I prepared my rig for folding yesterday, and will be starting over the weekend.
    I'll be folding under the alias "michael/roast" using the rig in my System Specs, a C2D E7200 @ 3.6, and a GTX285 OC'd.

    Thanks,
    Mick.

    Welcome to TPU folding forums. A 285 should give you good numbers. (Drat, another guy who's going to blast past me on the charts [J/K]) :ohwell:
