To fold for TechPowerUp!:
*** Regardless of the client you are using, the team# is 50711 and the Username is ChimPowerUp.
1) Download Fahtracker V2 or if you have a Radeon HD5xxx or newer, download & install FAHClient V7 then proceed to step 4 below. Either client will work with HD2xxx-HD4xxx, just not with the new core.
2) Run the client and go to Setup and select Tracker Settings. Use Quick Team Select to choose TechpowerUp!. Enter ChimPowerUp in the name field. PM Bogmali, Oily17, msgclb, Texbill, or Buck Nasty for the SMP/-bigadv passkey(GPU only folding requires no passkey).
3)Under Client Settings, select the hardware you want to fold with. We will be more than happy to help you set up your client(s).
4)FAHClient V7 works with everything and on everything. Make sure your drivers are up to date. If you are setting up anything but a Radeon HD5xxx or newer, simply follow the Windows (FAH V7) Install Guide
5)For Radeon HD5xxx or newer: Please read completly through this step before continuing. Folding on Radeon cards has been very frustrating due to their low PPD. FAHClient V7 introduces a new core, fahcore_16, for HD5xxx and newer Radeon cards. In order to get the client to request work units for this core, you must configure the GPU slot(s) as shown in this post. (that proceedure is needed if you install the GPU slot without the directions below) But, before you get there, install the client for anything but a GPU slot. SMP or uniprocessor recommended. Then add the GPU slot. Follow the instuctions here EXCEPT when you get to figure 5, before clicking on OK, click on Add under Extra slot options (expert only) and then type client-type in for the name and advanced for the value and then click OK and then OK. Repeat as necessary.The client will start automatically. Do not disable Crossfire! (if applicable)
6) For those of you Folding on Radeon HD2xxx-HD4xxx, please add the following Environmental Variables to your system. It will increase the Folding client's PPD, and reduce the load on your CPU thereby increasing the PPD for the CPU client. These won't blow your computer up.
XP: Computer=>Properties=>Advanced=>Environmental Variables
Win7: Computer=>Properties=>Advanced System Settings=>Environmental Variables
FLUSH_INTERVAL can be set anywhere from 128 to 256. Lower number for stability, higher for greater PPD output. CHeck the load on your card (in CCC) and increase the number until the load's close to 100% and the load on the CPU is fairly low.
Forum members have had success with settings betweeen 128 and 200
Please post in the F@H Tech Assistance thread if you are having any issues.
