GR.Net Folding Team

Recommended Posts

We're team number 32096. Team stats are here

Post here if you want to fold for GR.Net

Starting a running total of processing power. Add yours to the current total: 2790 MHz

I'm on it, and tomorrow Ill set up another rig to help out. I've got a 2390Mhz that only does folding when Im on WinWKAS which is from 12:00am-3pm. And may set it up on a 300MHz machine. I've already got one WU 90% done.

So 2390+2790 brings us to 5180 MHz

Im in. Add a 1.8Ghz processor to the list. Ill be setting this up on my 1.6Ghz AMD in a bit.

Erm, starting with Stinger, edit yer posts to keep the total running. I've got another 1000MHz going.

Didn't take to TINKER well.. might try gromacs when I get the chance.

Dangit! My server just had something terribly wrong and I had to reinstall the OS, I was 90% done on what may have been GR.nets first fold but oh well restarting again.

@ 7570MHz, if I'm counting right. Haven't added the soon-to-be-folding processors yet. With them, we'll be roundabout 11.09GHz. I think.

How many WUs are your protiens, guys? Mine's 400, and moving at one WU per 7ish minutes. Thinking that this would make a good pure-processor benchmark.

Today in 13 hours I've pumped 50% of a WU out. But yesterday in the same amount of time I had about 90%. And in 13 hours my 300MHz celly pumped out 8% of a 400 lol. I'll be gone all the way till Sunday pretty much so I'll leave it running and that should crank up some more WU's.

I noticed that there are only 4 members. How many of you have better things than helping find a cure for cancer while your in bed for 6 hours? Come on guys join the cause!

@XO, how did you get a 70 on 1 WU? IIRC all the Folding ones are 400 so are some "harder" ones to crack? I've got 2 boxen and 3 OS's working on Folding and 2 are near completion but thats kinda whacky lol.

@Current members GJ out there! Were climbin the ranks!

Beats me. Might have something to do with the time taken for the fold, or it may be in deference to the hairy nads my laptop has. :D Left my note on whilst I was in class / working, and am 172 into my next fold.

My 1GHz is chewing through a 200 WU fold. Maybe it's scaled to processor speed. 66%, I believe

I haven't a clue why it assigns different scores to different protiens. Something to experiment on?

I have a 300Mhz Celly on a 317/400 WU, my Server 2K3 is on 272/400 on a WU and I'm not sure what the XP one has on it. Maybe I will install it on my parents other puter too.

@XO are you sure the 200 one isnt the Genome Project? Go into configure F@H and then look at advanced and check the Client Type.

*shrug* It's Folding, not Genome
Even wierder, cause the only 200 I've ever had was a Genome and that was an accident. Was your other one that got you the 70 Score a 400 or 200?

Wazza 400 that gave 70pts. Should see in the next day or so how the 200 stacks up. Probably going to get a single point for it.. Heh.

*Starts dreaming~~~~~Ahh look at all those school computers, with no Admin's in site ahhhh. *Yanks out CD with F@H on it* :ph34r: doo doo do duh nuh nuh doo doo doo 64 more boxen are Mine MUAHAHHAHAHAHA ~~~~~~*

Heh. I was just thinking the same thing. Borg both the high school and university computers.

Also thinking it'd be cool if somehow the computers of the government got borged.

Just starting a 500 WU protien. Project 542 in water. Kinda wish the team page would update quicker. 200WU has yet to finish.

Edit- Looks like my protien got eaten by the internet ;p booooo

I just finished a 500 in one day...it takes me 2 ussually for a 400 on my 2.4. Oh well I'm at the top now :P:D Other people out there, I know you guys would enjoy this and it only costs your electric bill a bit more...maybe we can get Rocky to announce the team on the Front Page?

Took you three protiens to do it, though ;) If my 2nd finds its way to Stanford, I'll be back on top ;) This 500 is cooking merrily along. Ought to get a good fold in tomorrow. Leave for uni @ 0730, get home from work at 2130. Fold, fold, fold, all day long :devil:

From http://folding.stanford.edu/faq.html

How much power/money is used by keeping a F@H running 24/7 on a computer?

Roughly, a CPU uses about as much power as a 60 watt lightbulb. Here's a report on computer power management from Lawrence Berkeley goverment labs, and there are other referencs on the web you can find. Although power supplies on most computers are rated at 250 watts, average usage is much lower. On average, a Pentium-type computer uses between 45-70 watts (I've read various different sources on this) while it is on. If the computer has no idle mode, it will use the same amount of energy whether it is running a program or not. If it is on idle, it will comsume around 25 watts. So, the daily difference between off and running F@H is about 24x(45 to 70) = 1.1 to 1.7 kWh. At $0.14 per kWh ( from PG&E here in California), this works out to about $0.15 to $0.24 per day, or perhaps $6 a month. The difference between an idled computer and one running F@H would be closer to $4 a month - and if the computer was already being used 8 hours a day, it would be closer to $3 a month.

In general, lighting and climate control use a much larger share of household power than computers do. So the best bet for cutting costs and conserving energy would be to turn off lights, turn off your computer monitors (which use more power than a CPU), and turn down the heat. And keep folding :)

Good find there man! I've got a 100 WU on my machine alomst done on another 400 on another machine and started a 500 on my AMD machine. Still no idea why some count as more in the score though. It can't be the WU amount...
