Wow Transfusion, your smokin!!!

Your user summary suggest you have some serious hardware working here?
I commend you for your work!
Now tell the truth, how many killowatts of power does it take to fold all those WU's?  ;D

Our team is almost to 13,000,000 total points. At this rate we will be there quick.  ;)

Thank You :)
The hardware is not at all "serious." Its just the two computers in my specs folding on both their GPUs and CPUs 24/7-I set the CPU usage at 92%. I can really see how distributed computing works.
I can do my usual work while [email protected] is running-I see no performance hits while running Ubuntu in a virtual machine on either system, for example. Gaming while folding is out of the question though. I just got a mid-tower ATX case for my AMD system so whenever I want to game I just lug it over to my TV. Previously both computers were on a test rack-the Intel system still is.

The AMD system theoretically uses 189 Watts max, the Intel system 159 W. As I'm overclocking both systems to the max, I'll put the AMD system at 200 W Max and the Intel system at 170 W max. I pay 0.5469 Yuan/kWh.

So {[370 W * 3648 hours(the computers have been on 24/7 for 5 months.)]/1000}*0.5469 Yuan/kWh = 738.183744 Yuan = 115.667 USD and 1349.76 kW so far. I want to pick up one of the Kill-A-Watt monitors some day-they look pretty neat.

That's impressive! I'm nowhere near experienced enough to set up my hardware to perform like yours. I'm only running [email protected] on my laptop now but I do have an intel core 2 quad 8200 / geforce gtx 260 machine loaned to my sister. When I get it back I'll likely have some questions for you to help me get it folding at 'max'.

I was not serious about "how many killowatts of power does it take to fold all those WU's?", but I see that if I want an answer, you are the man to ask.  ;)

Thanks, and I'm glad to be on this [email protected] team with you!  :)
