    Would prefer it if you could select covid-19 projects. Im busy folding Project 14401 which simulates several myosins found in the human body. Nothing to do with corona virus :confused:

    Yea I left my PC on over night to fold away and woke up and it had done 2 WU's on the CPU which were both not COVID-19. But hey, its still for a good cause.

    Its nice to see them overwhelmed by support tbh :)

    Warms the heart!

    This is NOT a company FFS. It's a university that releases its results to the public. You can even find a GitHub repo of their COVID-19 results so far. Don't be ignorant and spread misinformation, the world has enough of it.

    Maybe I give this try seeing my pc tend to on idle most the time

    THe screen saver is just screen saver or does it do it work when screen saver is running? And I assuming the client has to be running to be doing work?

    So I've decided to jump back onboard for a while hopefully I'll be able to get and return a few Covid-19 WU's at the moment my gpu is folding an 11762 WU so not a covid-19 one yet and for some dumb reason my CPU can't get a damn WU to save itself this is what the log says

    19:58:57:WU00:FS00:Connecting to 18.218.241.186:80
    19:58:58:WARNING:WU00:FS00:Failed to get assignment from '18.218.241.186:80': No WUs available for this configuration
    19:58:58:ERROR:WU00:FS00:Exception: Could not get an assignment

    Both in Linux and Windows the desk computer couldn't get a single WU all day and log is full of errors.
    Trying to get my home computer, back online.
    Will report back.

    Finish 1 CPU WU and 1 GPU WU.

    Anyway I can limit Folding to using half power on the GPU. Gpu can get rather loud if on full load for to long

    If you're only folding for the points/competition, CPU folding is a waste of electricity most of the time. If you're actually trying to contribute as much as possible to the project, CPU folding will always be worth it.

    yah I had this going for 6+ hours "medium" which was like 6 thread and full load GPU it created some heat im my room that I can feel. I had to found out CPU was 63-65c so I limited it to 1 thread and I can limit gpu to 50 power which reduces temps.

    For some reason 95% load on GPU in F@H cause my gpu to whine too, where that same kind load in games there is no whine, anything bellow 75% power limit in MSI stops the whine though.

    Hi guys

    If you are getting WU's errors please restart the F@H app, quit the app and start again F@H, this usually helps with getting WU's due this I would try restart F@H app

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I think that what just says when there is no work to be handed out. Anywho I will let my CPU do work on my system when it is idle I cant let the GPU do work do to there is no way to really limit the usage to 50% GPU pushed 67c after hour or 2 of full usage, which make the fan get going and I hear coil whine from GPU at any load above 75% usage which odd in self cause I can put 95% usage on my gpu in game and have zero coilwhine which just ocd me to death.

    So Basic I will fold on my cpu using 3 or 4 threads, which should keep temps under 60c and wattager under the 95watt the cpu is rated at, so I say maybe 70 watts
