    Hilbert approved. The only requirements to participate is to register in the EHW forum, make a post in the contest thread "IN (folding name)" and use our team number 239902 for the four days.

    There are random prizes as well as top 3 prizes to make this fun as well as competitive.

    Be mindful of the start/stop timers as they are UTC time zone.

    Hope you see some of you next month for some crunching.

    Updated with the Cooler Master prizes. FYI we have 13 prizes total to give away and barely around that many people registered so far for the contest, so that's a very good chance of winning something even if it's just the Cooler Master Gem :p

    Bump. Just over 3 days to go. Get your rigs ready. Test them with folding to make sure they are stable. Folding is hard and there will be casualties. Don't forget to register at EHW. Mind the event start timer since it is UTC time zone. Give a shoutout to in the contest thread to guru3d as a thank you for Hilbert generously allowing me to post this here on his forum :D

    Update: EVGA has graciously added ten X20 mice and ten Z20 keyboards to our prize giveaway.

    We've had an influx of contestants over the last week but we still have excess prizes. Thus we relaxed the rules requirements a bit.

    Now only 10 work units will need to be completed to be eligible for the random prizes.

    In the event that there are leftovers, we will do a second round of random prizes for those that completed 20 work units.

    There's currently 33 hardware and peripherals up for grabs. There's about 30 or so entrants registered, but five or so of those are staff running the event and are prize ineligible. So doing that math, one has a very good chance of getting a prize, and the possibility of two.

    8 hours to go until event start. Get those crunching machines lit off to work out any last minute kinks.

    Thank you guru3d staff for allowing me to bump this thread regularly. We appreciate your support for folding.
