Can anyone here confirm lower power usage and heat with F@H as well? I was just reading through the docs. If anyone has like a 7950/7970 that they can compare it to (Scrypt vs F@H) that'd be awesome.

Over at http://curecoinfolding.com/ I did one for a Sapphire Toxic 280x, which is very similar to a 7970. Currently, my rigs run cooler when protein folding, with lower power consumption. I'll benchmark a 7950 and 7970 for you tomorrow.

That's an awesome review. I'm looking forward to the one tomorrow! FWIW, I have a 7950 (just threw 7970 in there because I figured they'd be somewhat similar). I'm mostly interested in the Scrypt vs F@H:

Power usage
Temperatures
Fan speed at that temp

With the temps being around the same ambient.

I really need to get a Kill-a-Watt, XD.

I can not comment on the power usage but I can comment on the temps and fan speed.

While running Scrypt I was running my fans at 80% and some of my GPU's (R9 290X TRI-X's) were still pushing 90 degrees Celcius and that was even after I added an additional 15,000 BTU cooling in the room.

Since switching to F@H I've removed the additional 15,000 BTU cooling in the room and the hottest running GPU stays stable at around 75 degrees Celcius with auto fans which seems to stay around 42%.

It is hard for me to imagine that the power consumption isn't equally as jarring but I don't have concrete proof to back up that assumption.  I can say that for me it would be impossible for there not to be a power savings because I don't need the additional cooling and my fans run at half the speed they used to.

Thankfully I had one day left to return the AC's to Lowe's which I did!   Cheesy

Did we just decimate the whole world in folding proteins?
Good job everyone, this is newsworthy stuff!!


It is almost as if someone flipped a switch.

Go CureCoin!

Hah, that's an awesome story!

I am a bit worried about the increasing hash rate seen on the link that was posted a little while ago though. I have the feeling it's not going to be profitable for too much longer at this rate. And then it's back to Scrypt or nothing at all.

Yeah I got lucky on the timing that is for sure.   Cheesy

I will not go back to mining again no matter what.  When I bought my hardware I told my wife that as soon as CureCoin launched I would switch off whatever I was mining to go to CureCoin because I believe this sort of idea is the future of crypto's but more importantly when I learned about F@H I couldn't see a reason not to do it.

I did not intend to donate my hardware and utility costs but I can sleep well at night if that ends up being the case.  I've mined several coins that were near a total loss.  Exchange theft etc...  At least even if CureCoin literally disappears and I get zero money for doing it, the research can not be taken away.  The work meant something and really that is all that matters to me.  Any coin is a gamble so I may as well make the gamble useful.

This is true. And so in that case, any reward is better than none, Smiley.

I do hope that more projects pick up that are similar to this. Giving a real benefit to hashing instead of just wasting electricity to "protect a network."

Devs, is it possible to fork the f@h software and make it more GPU efficient so we can really get our protein on?

The F@H software has some closed source parts so it's not possible and I think it's GPU efficient already. The F@H project started 9 years before Bitcoin was released so they should have a good idea how to design software.

My rig have 5 GPU 280x. But when i run FAH, GPU1 running at 0% and stuck in that. Do you know how to fix it? Thanks.

What CPU?

ADM Athlon II X2 220

You probably need to update that. Something like a 6 core system since you're using an AMD CPU.

The investor ipo is off putting IMO. It is just way too many coins given out for the amount of btc. I know there is no way to fix it now, but it is a big issue for me. Why not change the halfing to every year and increase the amount of coins distributed the first couple years. Currently at around 950000 points a day, it will take me nine months to get 10,000 coins, with this decreasing as the diff rises.  I agree that initial investors should be able to reap some reward, but that is ridiculous. It was handled poorly and is the elephant in the room for this coin.

And why is it off putting? Because you didn't get into the ipo? Were you even mining cryptos when they launched the ipo since you only joined this forum in january?

Why not whine about NXT or BTC or about a more recent coin like Darkcoin?

Agreed but here it is until it is added to the OP.

I am for finding a way to open CureCoin folding rewards to members of ANY team. People need to understand, some of these teams are very old, very passionate, and very dedicated to their teams and about *volunteering* their *donations* to the fold at home project. Please understand that FAH has been going for 14 years. [H]ardOCP has been doing it since 2000. The EVGA team has been doing it for 7 years. We've been doing it for one week.

We're the bull in the china shop right now, and when you talk about recruiting from other teams, you're talking about destroying other teams that have had to work a thousand times harder than us to accomplish what they have accomplished. That's wrong, and believe it or not - it will drive people in the FAH community away, because we've killed it for them.

Now suppose the value of CureCoin does fall. Will you still be folding? Because that's what many of them are talking about when they talk about us. Cheating. Dropping units in the hunt for higher payouts. That we'll just move on to something else three months from now. The best thing about us, to them, is that we're introducing new people to the Folding@Home program that might just stick around after the tide of CureCoin miners leave.

The reactions to us haven't exactly been brilliant. They're floored, for sure, about the hash-power we've managed to drum up. But we're hurting the huge communities that have been built up by dividing them and forcing them to break ranks and join our team if they want to take part in our coin. If everyone joins our team, what's the point of having teams in the first place. Eh?

No. No recruiting from other teams. And until the devs find a way to include members from *any* team, I would encourage people in other teams to KEEP donating what they can afford to their teams, and to utilize the CureCoin program to facilitate their ability to donate more.



I think the advent of cryptocurrencies provides a brilliant way of paying people for providing resources dedicated to science. I know there are a bunch of people who are total grandfathers to this whole project, but they should give a lot of respect to the CureCoin team for coming up with this new way of rewarding folders. The same amount of respect should be given by Curecoin to all the old folding teams.

Simply because of the fact that any moment a single person could crash the market, when it gets better established.   I didn't say it was a deal breaker. I am supporting this coin, and all my hash power is on it. It is just something I think about when I check my machines and wonder if I should be hashing at this. I have been mining longer than I have been at this forum, but you are correct I did not get in the original btc startup. I am not whining, just stating my trepidation. I will continue to support Curecoin until I decide not to, it is my decision and I will live with it either way.
