Hi all, I'm johnnyfiive. I just started folding about 1-2 weeks ago. I have two main machines folding at my house and one at work. The machines at home fold while I'm not at work and the one at work is 24/7.

The machines at home are my main rig and a PS3.
Main rig is a Phenom II 920 @ 3.5GHz, XFX GTX 260 Black Edition, 4GB ram. The PS3 is a brand new 80GB. The machine at work is a Intel C2D 2.2GHGz with 4GB of ram and a low grade ATi card running Ubuntu.



I'm a VW fan. :D

My name is Amit, from India.
I have just started using F@H , have joined the TPU team with username "TechPowerup!".
My rig is listed in "system spec".

I have downloaded high-perf. client. I dont know much about F@H this time, so have set perf. setting to "slightly high" atm.

Welcome Johnnyfive, that's a unique GUI you have for you F@H client. Love the old school GTI and the colors on your Sig Banner. Let us know if there is anything we can help you with.

Thanks for joining the team Amit. Your E8400 does a nice job on SMP and the ATI cores have been getting better with time. You should be able to get approx 5K ppd with your sig rig. Let me know if you need any help with F@H.

My names Danny. I've been folding almost 24/7 on my 4870 for the last few days. I seem to run games just as well with it running.

Currently i'm building a second computer that'll be dedicated to folding. It's only got an 8600GT in it at the moment... lol.

When that computer is finished, i'll be folding alot more. I'll try to keep it on 24/7 - so long as it's quiet.

Yellow aquare is ok - just means it needs to update. Not sure how fast it will crunch the numbers, but at a guess maybe 15-20minutes per % done. So give it an hour and it should be a nice green color.

My current 4850 is scarily quiet - can not hear it even at load. If you wish PM me and i can give you the exact link to it.

Hey everyone,
My name is TheMailMan78 and I'm an Foldalcoholic.

<<< My current specs are under my name.

I'm not sure how folding works but I entered the team name and my name into the folding control app. Now the icon in my task bar says "F@H: Working 270/1500". How does this work exactly and how should I properly set this up?

uhh if your willing to turn off crossfire and run two seperate GPU clients for each of your 4850's that would get you the most PPD i think

If you have your GPU's on SLI, you need to unlink them. Buck_Nasty has a pretty good tutorial (on this sub-forum) on how to use/setup multi-GPU's. You should pull 5-6K PPDs on each one of those cards.
