  • Is Folding your source of winter heating for your home?

    I finally folded my first WUs in months a couple days ago. Then the A/C turned on again. Come on, winter.

    I have a room where, without A/C on, the temp reaches 82 F when it is 60 F outside. I have A/C set to 80 F so it does not go on a lot. 14188 W/U folds in about 10 hours instead of 10 days.

    I have discovered that my machine runs well folding one W/U at a time-- the servers started giving me perfectly indentical instances when I tried 2 w/u at once.

    Remember, this is not a folding only computer so my work folding needs to leave room for my graphics work. The RAM will be updated to 32 GB in about three weeks.

    I wish I could leave my PCs on 24/7 like I was doing, but running the IC Minecraft server at the office and having $300 power bills at home doesn't allow to me fold anymore unfortunately.

    I got volunteered to run the cluster at the makerspace, and for half a second was excited about getting the nodes Folding. Then I found out they almost got rid of them because of heat and the power bill.

    Guess I'll let them idle :(

    Interesting enough I had my spare computer just turn itself off in the middle of the night several days ago. Apparently the PSU failed in it 100%. Back up and lets see if the PSU failure killed anything else!
