    Several days ago, the Techpowerup Folding at Home (F@H) team made it into the top 125 teams in the official F@H stats and is now ranked 123. This was no small feat and was accomplished due the countless hours of CPU/GPU time donated by the team’s members. I would like to thank all of them for the time, energy, and money they have selflessly donated to this wonderful project. I encourage everyone who is able to join the team and help us reach the top 100! A list of all members who have donated CPU/GPU time to the team has been included inside the thread.

    For those of you who have not heard of the Folding At Home project it is a distributed computing project run by Stanford University. It uses spare CPU/GPU cycles of idle processors from around the world to calculate the folding of proteins. Protein folding is a complex action that takes place after protein synthesis where the interaction of several forces in the molecule causes it to assemble or “fold” into its functional form. The shape of a protein has more to do with its function than its composition. The misfolding of proteins is the suspect cause behind many diseases including Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes. The F@H project aims to calculate the folding/misfolding of key proteins in order to find cures and treatments for some of these debilitating diseases.

    Here is a list of the top 10 contributors. A full list can be found inside the thread.

    As soon as I get my remodeling done my new system will be back up and going, plus I can readd all my machines at work. Been upgrading some of them.

    congrats techpowerup. all the best.

    You may find updating your folding info/guides page regularly: having a dedicated folding heading on your forum index page; and a monthly thread with folding news updates, community help, and recognition for milestones will help foster your folding community and get you far beyong just 100th.

    Techpowerup is my main hardware info site, I fold for NCIX, where I buy my hardware. I remember just 3 years ago we were 50th.

    If only I had known about TPU's F@H team before I started a team with friends. I'm up to 62714 points and 122 WUs. My team is up to 155314 points after ~2 months. I'm a little too far into it to change now.

    We are already on it. Look for some nice changes coming up in the next few months. We will bring TechPowerup! into the upper echelon
    of Folding Teams very shortly.
