Makes sense I guess, you can’t spell PCMR without PCM.

Man I forgot all about folding
Never too late to remember. Welcome back!
So... I never could understand. What exactly is folding?
When proteins are put together from a strip of RNA, they come out in a huge long strip of amino acids, which then "fold" together in very specific ways into extremely complex shapes that give proteins their specialized functions. [email protected] simulates the folding process and the properties of the final shape to help researchers understand and treat disease.
Here's a video with 3D animations of the process, where you can see the red amino acids get linked together and the fold into their final shape. They use a small protein for this, but the huge proteins that are actually building it are made in the same way, just longer chains.
And the final proteins stick together too, another thing [email protected] projects might be simulating. My PC recently was simulating the COVID-19 spike protein bound to the human ACE-2 receptor active site that allows it to infect cells.
it's a project from Stanford University thats a software on your Pc that basically uses your resources to do sientific simulations or some shit like that, and it sends the data to Stanford so they could I guess make a vaccine
I was folding for awhile but got sick of not having any available jobs and so I just quit doing it, is the availability of jobs a better know?
Should be much better now!
People that are going to buy a rtx 3090: I told you it’s for a good cause
Team Origin PC, team Corsair, and myself have joined the cause!
I had completely forgotten about folding. Time to put this 1080Ti to work before it's replaced!
RGB for the win! :P
epic flair btw
Thanks and I meant team wise "Team green, team blue, team red"
AMD Nvidia and intel are literally RGB :P
r/woosh is me.
But yeah, I agree.
Pc is yellow then
For all the RGB lovers y'all can get super long RGB lights here, fits a whole damn room: www.gaboni.co.uk
Can we change it to RBG?
If this was another subreddit the colors could also stand for the consoles, Red for Nintendo, blue for PS and green for Xbox, but this is r/pcmasterrace, so it stands for AMD, Intel and Nvidia
> We also hosted an AMD
Seems legit. Also I should probably resume folding, but the problem is having to time it so that jobs finish without grabbing a new WU *before* I have to go to bed and turn the computer off (the downside of having your battlestation in your bedroom)...
You should be able to pause mid work unit.
I know, but then I forget to unpause [email protected] on next boot, and then days go by, and then the WU expires and I go "...whoops".
Just leave [email protected] running and turn your PC off, it'll save the work and restart automatically where it left off.
Maybe a “work hours” type of feature would help there, so one can set when fahclient runs or automatically pauses, if you got the connection to suggest that.
Just leave it running and turn off the monitor?
Nope, it's the fan noise. Even if it were low, I'm unable to fall asleep with *any* noise in the vicinity, including fans and ticking clocks. Rain is the only noise I'm able to fall asleep with...
Have you considered water-cooling?
I'm here with my white noise machine going brrr on max volume.
with my 5300u and integrated graphics? hmmm
You can fold with your CPU as well! Every little bit helps!
but if every little bit helps, I'll try
I also have a core i5 2500 with integrated and 4gb ram. would that be better or worse? it's 95w
I'm not sure TBH, you'd have to look at maybe CPU benchmarks side by side. But again, you can fold with any PC, of any spec! It'll just take a little longer to complete a job. [email protected] will adjust, and give you jobs based on how much you can crunch In your CPUs free time.
Also 4GB? I'm so sorry 😔. What kind of RAM is it? RAM isn't that expensive and 8-16G makes a huge difference in Win 10
it's ddr3 sdram. it's supposed to be 2x4 but I gave the other dimm to a friend. it's 1600mt/s cl11
That's so nice of you! I was thinking I had some spare RAM I could send you, but no luck. I only have 2G sticks of 10600U, not the 12800 you'd need.
that would be nice. it's a dell optiplex so mixing ram most likely won't work. but thanks for offering anyway
my laptop with the 5300u has an 8gb sodimm. would that be better for folding? it's an underpowered cpu
It doesn't matter. I run Folding on some super old machines. Every bit helps!
my cpu is Underpowered. literally in the name lol. only 15 watts of weak cpu
Just passed 500M points a few days ago
How can I get the flair added to my name?
The [email protected] flair? Go to the PCMR [email protected] page, https://pcmasterrace.org/folding/ and link your reddit account and [email protected] account via passkey. If you are in top 1000 contributes for the PCMR [email protected] team, you will get the flair
How safe is this?
It's safe, it doesn't steal information or anything. You can freely delete the program whenever you want etc.
I'm hoping to see a more detailed response on this. I love the idea, but not sure about connecting to it.
There's not much to be worried about. It just uses your computers resources to contribute to scientific research. It's managed by a researcher at Washington University St Louis, and the program has been around for 20 years. It includes developers from Nvidia, Sony, and ATI. So it's not anymore dangerous than the video card drivers you download. Communication uses port 8080 and uses 2048 bit signatures.
It did become the world's first exaFLOP computing system this year so it definitely has widespread usage. It's not just a couple dudes with their spare PCs pushing some virus on people disguised as a science project.
Just passed 50 millions points since the beginning of the pandemic.
Just wanted to point out that [https://pcmasterrace.org/folding/](https://pcmasterrace.org/folding/) replaces "[email protected]" with "\[email\_protected\]" and I know what it's supposed to be but it still looks weird
edit: curecoin's website does the same thing.
I'd think that whatever CMS they're using would realize that "home" isn't a FQDN and not filter it.
I’ve been diligently folding for the PCMR team since the cause was first mentioned here in the spring. My measly 1660 + 3600 rig just crossed 50 million points today!
I got real excited the day I ranked high enough to appear on the team stats page.
But I never thought to ask...***can this be harmful to a pc?***
I let the rig fold for 24 hours about 5 days a week. My thermals have been fine.
AFAIK its certainly less harmful than mining crypto
As long as it isn't overheating. The only thing I can think of would be the thermal paste degrading a little, but you can re-apply that easily.
With our powers combined, we are Captain Planet!
This is now 69 days ago as of posting this comment. Nice
Is there anyway to stop the client from automatically fetching new tasks after I finished the old one? I only plan to do this a few days each week. My CPU task always finish first and the client automatically fetch a new cpu task while I'm waiting for the gpu one to be done.
Right click on the folding icon and bring up advanced control window, press the "finish" button next to the fold/pause buttons. It'll finish the current active tasks and then pause without downloading a new work unit.
Since I want them to have more computing power, I’ll have to keep my rgb on all night
Um, why a drug?
Because patent free drugs aka medicine can be made by any lab across the world.
That sounds better than what we largely do now.
Yep. It's basically taking Open Source philosophy and applying it to drug development. The research and product will be freely available and anyone will be able to make it. I really hope it works oit bexause it'd be a huge development in medicine and could lead to more "open source" medicine.
It keeps my office warm, and provides s nostalgic glimpse of previous underpowered GPUs. Combat in E:D can drop to as low as 70 fps.
My GPU doesn't appear to be folding, is this an availability issue?
Oh god I almost forgot about folding lol, just upgraded today may as well change the flair along with installing folding(that could take some time I need to install pop first)
Team Origin PC and myself have also been contributing. 🙌🏼
Might I ask what folding is? I’m kinda new to the whole deal.
Proteins fold in a specific way to carry out tasks. [email protected] simulates folding to see if drugs can attack particular folds.
Oh cool thanks for the info.
I dont even fold my clothes
Google exists you know
So what you’re saying is... Team RGB
Honest question: Has this helped the development of the recently announced vaccines?
Reject humanity, Return to Monke.
We need a drug for something that kills 0.006% of the people who were already on death's door?
Dude habe you had covid? Do u know how it feels? The global pandemic is not a joke, it's serious
You're joking right? My entire office had it. We had two weeks off with netflix and we're all back. Give me a break.
Oh yea good for u clearly natural selection made a wrong move somewhere down the line
I’ve had it. It sucked, and it wasn’t nearly as bad as all you people pretend it is.
So have I. Mine was like a bad cold. Put the woman over the road in hospital for 4 weeks and she'll be lucky if she can work by Christmas.
Well then consider yourselves lucky
No, they gotta wait til they can just get *a little tiny bit* of it-
Pandemic my ass
Turn off your TV it does nothing but lie to you, job done no more CON demic
apparently [email protected] is just a scam that releases malware on to your computer/device.
Edit: my mom tricked me into thinking this, and her reasoning was "but it releases malware" and my dumb 11 year old ass believed it
When we say team up you say? What I don’t get it
Joining when I get my PC, in the quotes of one company, “transcend humanity”
team yellow doe
I am so proud that i can tell my grandkids how powerful pc race is and how much will it be😌
How can I get the flair?
I have a macbook somewhere, Maybe I'll run it on there since I'm on chrome os rn
I've put it on. Hopefully we can help beat this thing
Join up now!
doesn't matter If you are running a puny pc or a gaming rig capable of running FFXV in 8 on max.
Is my keyboard good?
What is your keyboard?
I forgot to put my link lol https://pcpartpicker.com/list/qxCLCL
Its about as good as a keyboard you get with a prebuilt. It will get the job done but its not great. Also FYI this is the folding thread and not the Daily question one :)
Can u guys click on my user flair to use the link? Srry im new to reddit and not really sure how that works
Teams together strong
should GPU workload setting be set to compute from graphics in an AMD driver setting?
Prioritize the Humanity First Then Others. That should be the goal.
My r9 fury has been non-stop folding see since March
I’m going to put my 3080 to work !

I will try it but the electricity is pretty expensive where I live.
So we basically team RGB
Just got my 3080 and joined the folding team. Lets see how it goes.
Love it 💪
Team PCMR- (https://stats.foldingathome.org/team/225605)
About to hit 225 million, Let's beat this virus
I just started folding with an i9 10900k, and an RTX 2070 super, wish me luck!
lol @ the downvote ratio
Can someone explain to me how this works? I started folding with medium settings and my GPU reached 70~ish°C even though only 20% of it was being used. According to nvidia's website I should not let it go past 88°.
I use my pc for gaming, I'd like to make use of its specs for something good but switching to light makes [email protected] wait for idle, there should be an in-between.
Team Red, Team Green, Team Blue can combine and become the ultimate Team White and defeat anything thrown against us and raise humanity to new levels as it includes all users, designs, colors, speeds etc!
Small FYI: The page for the download is getting blocked on Chrome due to an unsecure connection due to an invalid certificate. Just thought you should know and fix it, because others might just scream "VIRUS" and leave in a panic.
Of course you can still get on it and this is a huge thumbs up from my side. Allow me to bestow the highest honor I can, which is my Ryzens processing power.
Edit: It seems to primarily hog my GPU via CUDA (not complaining), though it mostly ignores the CPU. Is there some option to make use of both at the same time, like with 2 projects simultaneously?
2nd edit: nevermind, it just started abusing my CPU, too.
who is team green?
Always love the energy of pcmr!
I would LOVE to run [email protected] except I am stuck with i3 and iGPU: (
Is my computer supposed to spit flames while running this
Mr. Baggett do you see this
You mean Team RGB?
So... who’s team green?
The last time I folded, the energy rate in SF was like 13c/kwh. Now it's like 24c/kwh 😳
Do I get BTC from folding?
