Folding@home - Download the Folding@home software application

It's the real Folding@Home, they just ask you to enter their folding team (Which is optional, join the HWC Team ). So basicly you end up with the PS3 and Nvidia folders.

Can you control the fan or do you still need a fan hack? Does the fan hack even work if you have to do that?

Anyway glad to see this here and hope crossfire improves-didnt see anything about crysis Xfire improvements though.
