Let´s see how much cpu-power the madshrimps have ! Let"s NOT waste all the empty cycles of our systems ... Let"s do something usefull with that highly OC´ed rig !
If you have doubts about the client consuming all ur computing powah :
The results of our testing couldn´t be clearer, at least for the systems we´ve tested today. Quite simply, the impact of running Folding@Home in the background is negligible. Even the most discerning users won´t notice it. Windows allocates CPU time slices according to process priority, and as long as the Folding@Home client is running as an idle-priority task (which is how it runs by default), one shouldn´t notice any slowdown. Tech-Report Performance review(link)Client Installation:* Download the client here for your platform* The resultpapers and what has come from our efforts* What does folding mean anyways? find out here...
* Install the program, when asked for a name enter "nickname"
* Start the program and change the team number to 37249 (right click the icon in the system bar)
* that´s it!
enter your user info & team number here (please note that team number has changed to "37249"
When you select the display/fullscreen option you get to see "some" action :)Connection Troubleshooting:
Core download problems = firewall problems ?
*Try quiting the client, re-configure your firewall and start it back up.
* Did you fill in your proxy? (e.g.: Telenet users)
Did you fill in the connections tab correctly ?
You are all set to GO!
