    SG f@h is hurting

    Software that runs in the background.
    Easy to install in less than 5 minutes.

    Crunches protein folding equations and tries to find cures for cancers, alzheimer's, parkinson's, huntington's, malaria, and several others: http://folding.stanford.edu/home/faq/faq-diseases/
    Centered at Stanford University, going for over a decade.

    The SpeedGuide team has been going for years and is at a very low point in participation and points. Any help is much appreciated, whether having it run on in the background on a surfing computer or setting up a graphics card to fold (both work).

    I make posts like this every couple of years but have never seen participation this low.

    Lost my mother 16 months ago and hope that running this can keep other individuals and families from the pains we all went through.

    Welcome to join my team or fold alone, all team 15 points go to SG, and even if you don't join a team the points end up in the right place.

    Happy to answer any questions http://forums.speedguide.net/forumdi...uted-Computing, as are many other people.

    Thank you.

    You can also start here http://folding.stanford.edu/
    Please do a bit of reading, there is a "Click Here" link on that page. Follow the instructions, enter Team 15 is you want to fold for Speedguide's team. You will have to come up with a name for yourself. The down load program that does the folding is quite small and takes up less memory that most anti virus programs. It runs quietly in the back ground of your PC you may not notice it running.

    I have a gaming PC. Windows 7, 8 gig of ram, I7 CPU 2.67 GHz with a 650 Nvidia graphics card.

    With this PC and the basic setting that come with the folding program at installation I leave my workstation running 24 / 7 and still play online games without having to stop the folding. I stream Netflix on my PC and anything I do on my PC the folding will slow down and take a back seat to whatever I am doing. When I am not doing anything Folding will process Work Units a bit faster. I have advanced setting on my PC and my PC has slight lag, mostly with typing documents, game play is not effected.

    If this something you can support and want to teak your machine for more power and advanced options this link http://forums.speedguide.net/forumdi...uted-Computing can be of help. It' a bit outdated but help can be provider none the less.

    Eh, what the hell. I re-installed it. Glad to see the DOS interface is gone and a new web client is enabled.

    I upgraded and reloaded my OS recently and forgot to re-install...Rolling now on the new setup: Xeon E3-1270V2 @ 3.5 ghz / 16gb / HD7950
    And holy crap the 7950 is gonna be putting up some nice numbers if the PPD estimates are accurate.

    yea, Cuda kicks the crap out of AMD. F@H has to use open CL to utilize AMD cards.

    For years yes, many times over.
    More recently I think Radeon have caught back up (rather, f@h optimized itself for both) and it's a level plaiyng field again.

    What are you using?
