If your like me, and you have a good computer with a great processor, your not using all of your cpu cycles all of the time. Why not put them to good use?

Folding @ Home

What is protein folding and how is folding linked to disease?
Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.

Moreover, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

You can help by simply running a piece of software. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project -- people from through out the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer makes the project closer to our goals.
I leave my computer on most of the time, and I've been wanting to try out Folding At Home. I just downloaded it, and started our own Neoseeker team. The program runs in the background, just using spare CPU cycles. My processor has been hovering around 60 to 100% load while I run it, and its risen 9 degree's C. You can easily change how much percent of your processor it uses (from 0 to 100%).

Current projects:
* Alzheimer's Disease
* Cancer
* Huntington's Disease
* Osteogenesis Imperfecta
* Parkinson's Disease
* Ribosome & antibiotics

To join the team, download and run the program. Right click anywhere in the page, and select Configure. Put the team number in the Team Number blank.

The success of the neoseeker team would not be possible with out the following members (in no order). You can thank them, give them a slap on the rear, or what ever you want.












And of course, those of you running the program right now.

If I left you out (and you should be in the list), then sorry, just let me know and I'll put you up there. I'm positive I left someone out though.

Since its going to be very hard to keep up with who is still running the program, and whose not, I'll just change the list to whats on the F@H website. When you set up the program, please use your full user name, and (pc) or (PS3), or (*processor type*) if you want to.

Thank You for helping the cause!

the new x2 series is meant to be best, but with both my rigs i get varying results.

i have an i7-870 with a 670oc and have seen upto 75k ppd
vs my amd 8150 with a 680oc getting upto 55k ppd
am yet to trial a x2 series card.

Dec 30, 13 at 9:41pm

Downloaded FAH again. Been so busy with work and family I haven't been able to log on to fold. Might start again off and on.

Which AMD cards are good now? Nvidia slipped?

Dec 27, 13 at 5:45pm

ironically, AMD cards shit all over nvidia at the moment.

Dec 27, 13 at 3:39pm

i quit folding when stamford would not release an update for the ati cards 9 months after they came out but had nvidia update the day the fermi was released. if that tells you how long i have been inactive.

I rant and rave like a pissy 9 year old at times it seems. And then have no recollection.

I actually am still folding haha. I saw ya there in first. "IF" I was to fold 24/7 I could get 55,000 PPD from my rig with the 7870ghz. I use it way too much, though.
