Your quad should be able to cover the 15K in a week running the SMP client. :)

This will be the first of many contests for the F@H members but we wanted to get things off the ground with a bang. Expect some F@H team exclusive contests to begin over the next few months as well.

Basically, there has never been a better time to start folding for us. ;)

Good job guys! Anybody out with a step up or similar will still have lots of time to get their rigs up to qualify.

Haha well, the guys who frequent the F@H forums here are all great people and everyone is pretty helpful. It is fun sharing the info, and having friendly competition among each other. The prize stuff is just icing on the cake
