    Thanks to the generousity of W1zzard and Techpowerup, I want to welcome you to the new Folding @ Home subforum. All your hard work has made this upgrade possible. This new section will help our Team grow exponentially. I know the entire team appreciates the veteran folders as well as the newer members that bring cutting edge cards to fold for TPU. OK, let's get posting and grow this team!

    AWESOME news, good job guys.

    Remember, no matter how small the contribution - it's still a worthwhile contribution.

    This will be a huge help to organize the HUGE mess we had to work with in one thread :roll:
    Now we can have ATI/NVIDIA and cpu client threads broken down to be more helpful :toast:

    Whats your set up going to be?

    Best bet is to use a GPU folding method, as it does the most amount of work.

    Are you saying I should use my 4850 instead of my CPU to do folding?

    Very much so, it folds more WU in a shorter amount of time. That is you get more points.

    yup, again just make sure different ID's and your set. IIRC GPU defaults to ID 2 and CPU to ID 1 but its good practice to make sure.

    This is really awesome to have a separate forum just for Folding.

    I will be converting all folding to TPU next week!


    Suggestion: Buck Nasty Since you are the Folding God here, why don't you make a Guide for folding. Like have all the types of cards that have good PPD and stuff like that to cut down on the thread making?

    Nice! I think I got it. So now we have our own "Forum".

    OK, what really matters is that we made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My special thanks to my "OLD FOLDING FELLAS"

    Already working on it. I'm like a kid in a candy store right now:D

    See above

    I have 6 rigs in total. Four of them are Quad 8800GS/9600GSO rigs. I have a dual 8800GTS 512 rig and lastly a dual 9800GTX+ rig(my main rig). Pulling juice from 2 addt'l rooms with 12/3 extension cords. This folding thing can be detrimental to the addictive type personality:laugh:. I know mmaakk has several rigs running also. He should post up his farm cause' I know it just got a new addition.;)

    Nice work on the F@H section, Buck I gotta hand it to ya, sure many of us donated and voiced our support, but noone I have seen was as huge of a push to get more people folding as you were. You kept it positive and donated a ton, and the great thing is how much the F@H support has grown here in the last 6 months, it's been just astonishing to see. Great work TPU!
