Default Help for folder illeterate (or osmethne)

Hi,

I seem to totally suck at those things and I know it. I downloaded Folding@home application for GPU and CPU installed them and everything.

I started Folding@home went into configure, chose Kilauea as user name and 54196 as team number. So now I am good to go ?

I see the molecules and all that. But it says Core is not running now. What am I missing ?

I added a screen shot of the most important info (I think).

Also, I know ATI sucks for Folding, but is my performance total crap ?

Start by using the Systray GPU Client. It's the most efficient client. Your 4890 should produce some nice ppd too.

Un-install the CPU client you have running, it's the slowest of them all. Never, ever use the viewer, since it slows down the folding.

Install Fahmon and configure it to see the GPU client ppd. Follow the sticky guides.

Are you using fahmon? Once you have it set up it is the best way to monitor your progress. Do not use viewer it sucks. If you have the systray gpu client right click on it go to>status?logfile. It will tell you in there what the status of your client is. You may have to wait to see progress, it is not instantaneous.

Alright, so I am only using the Folding@Home GPU client and I have FahMon working.

Now, how will I know I am effectively in HWC's team ?

Can you show us a screenshot of Fahmon?

Your name will be added to the Team list (once your first WU is uploaded), here: Hardware Canucks Forum Individual Users List - EXTREME Overclocking Folding @ Home Stats.

Next time, try to grab the Fahmon window only, I'm too old for such a small pic... ;)

ppd looks about right for a 511, post the ppd for the upcoming WUs as well.

My 275 has a ppd of ~9300 on a 472 and ~7900 on a 787.

I noticed, that's why I changed it, sorry.

So, you mean you get some PPD based on the number of credits ?

What are the credits ? How important the task is ?

Credits are points awarded for each Work Unit folded. In your Fahmon window, you are folding a 511 pointer. But since you can do many 511s in a day, then we use the ppd (points-per-day) to compare our rigs' performance.

Your rig's ppd being ~2940 ppd, for the WU being folded. This ppd will change based on the WU being folded: a 420, a 472, a 787 etc. Some a re folded faster than others, hence producing a higher ppd.

One other question Charlie and I don't feel like starting a new thread just for that.

How will folding impact my upload/download ?
