Hi just found about this and signed up and am folding. Any tweaks I can do to my puter to get it to run faster for this application? Also if I recommend this to anyone should I tell them to put in the team number or do they have to be registered to these forums?

Thanks.......wished I found about this sooner!

anyone can be on the F@H team, we've got quite a few Intel machines even, me included. I don't know of any tweaks to the computer you can do, but if you read ardrid's post stickied at the top of this section, that should give you a few commands to add that might help. Actually, I don't know if it's been updated along with the F@H client so some of them may not be necessary now.

For the Version 5 Clients if you have a minimum 512Mb of RAM:
GUI - Right click F@H Icon in the Task Bar, click on configue and under the Connections tab put a tick in "Allow receipt of assignments and return of results greater than 5Mb in size".

Console - On the Target line of the shortcut you have made add -config at the end of the line. Stop the client by pressing Ctrl and C, then restart answering the questions and say yes to "Allow receipt of assignments and return of results greater than 5Mb in size".

Now remove -config from the shortcut and add -advmethods ( you need this to get the large Gromacs with the extra points value for either Clients) and add -local if running more than one Client.

For Intel Boxen with Hyperthreading run either two Console Clients (make sure you have ID1 and ID2 for both Clients) or one GUI and one Console Client as this gives a 10-20% boost over running one Client.
