While folding contest maybe "boring and unoriginal" it goes to a great cause and with diminishing returns on points allows a wide range of people to get a chance to win something. If you base the contest on overclocks, benchmarks or cooling solutions, then you end up giving the people who already have nice stuff, nicer stuff. A contest like this is awesome cause it gives people who don't have sweet cooling setups a chance to win something sweet.

Alternatively, you could do a OC/Benchmark contest with scaled entries, so the 1st place person gets 10 entries or something and everyone else gets scaled respectively to that score. That would still allow for a wide range of entries, yet those who get best scores (and who would most likely get the best use out of the stuff) have better chances. You could even make it a two part contest, entries for folding and entries for OC/Benchmarking.

A little off topic, but what PS are you using that's now stuck at 100% fan?
