    Folding@Home

    Was just wondering if there was a team ID on Folding@home. I can't remember finding any discussion about this on the old forums and I can't seem to find a topic about it here. Thanks in advance!

    Appreciate it, just ran a test to see the average energy my computers were using a month...stayed around 22 bucks, which isn't too bad at all. Gonna do the same test with the PS3 and see how much the tv, gaming systems, and surround sound do...

    I received this message from Punchy EVGA as I crunched folding in the past.

    Please join us in the EVGA Folding@Home Call to Arms Challenge
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    EVGA Folding @ Home Team Call to Arms

    Greetings from the EVGA Folding @ Home team! For those of you that are not aware, members of the EVGA online community have joined together to form a team that competes in the Folding @ Home program run by Stanford University. EVGA's Folding @ Home team is a helpful and friendly collection of computer enthusiasts. We don't necessarily have the biggest or best machines, but pride ourselves on getting the most output from what we've got. Our strength lies in our numbers and no contribution is too small to make a difference!

    Folding @ Home is a distributed computing project that allows individual users to harness the power of their CPU and/or GPU to help scientists fight some of the worst diseases plaguing humanity in the 21st century (for more information continue reading or check out the official site). We would like to invite you to join our group of hardware enthusiasts that enjoy pushing our machines to get the most out of them competing against other hardware enthusiasts for the benefit of scientific research.

    Reasons to Join Folding @ Home

    Earn EVGA Bucks for your folding points! EVGA runs regular promotions to reward dedicated folders with EVGA bucks that can be used to purchase anything at EVGA's online store!

    Compete in various community sponsored challenges and contests. We currently have several ongoing contests with a wide array of prizes donated by members of the community that we will be giving away. Stop by the contest section and check them out!

    Help us defeat our friendly folding rivals over at ardOCP. We are currently in a close race to be the #1 folding team and can use all the help we can get!

    Folding @ Home provides valuable computational results to researchers working to eradicate some of the worst diseases plaguing humanity in the 21st century.

    Push your computer hardware to its limits for a good cause and find out how well it performs. Channel your enthusiasm and interest for technology into a cause that benefits humanity!

    Ways to get started folding

    Folding @ Home’s Official V7 client. A highly functional folding client produced by Stanford.

    Folding @ Home Tracker by Jedi95 is another easy way to get started folding including EVGA's latest 600 series GPU’s. A setup guide can be found here (600 series guide found here).

    If you are having any problems getting started, please check the folding help section on EVGA's Forums. If you do not find relevant information, you can make a post and you will find EVGA’s folding community eager to help resolve any issues and get you up and running! Alternatively, you can PM one of our folding mentors for help or advice.

    Additional Information:

    Folding @ Home provides research on how proteins are formed (or 'fold'). Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Proteins help your body break down food into energy, regulate your moods, and fight disease. Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." While protein folding is critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology much of the process remains a mystery.

    When proteins do not fold correctly, also known as misfolding, there can be serious health consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many cancers. If we better understand protein misfolding we can design drugs and therapies to combat these illnesses. For more information please visit: http://folding.stanford.edu/
