    Yeah, it's great!

    I just wish I had more systems to install F2H on :(

    I will be bringing another machine online soon. I just ordered a processor upgrade for an old Dell XPS R450 (yes a PII) machine I had laying around. It will be interesting to see how the 1.4GHz PIII PowerLeap upgrade holds up against my other machines.

    PowerLeap

    Aren't the powerleap upgrades based on the Celeron processor?

    Re: PowerLeap

    They have both actually. I went for the cheap option and opted for the Celeron, this is a very old machine we are talking about here. It should do just fine with the Gromacs core. Tinkers are another story.


    Note:

    The Dell XPS R450 is a Slot 1 machine with a 100Mhz bus, I don't think I can do much better for this thing without performing surgery. Something I don't want to waste my time or money on for an old Wintel box.

    Re: PowerLeap

    The upgrade was installed yesterday and the outcome of the initial trials are; WOW! The old XPS machine is now more than usable for my feeble folding contributions. As a side, it is also faster than my wife's P4.

    I just want to thank arn for posting the folding info in the site update. I caught that and it steered me towards installing F@H on my machines... Im currently running at about 500 points a week and on my way up.:)

    Also, a shout out goes to mc68k for the awsome installers. Thanks guys.

    Seems very close to a record...

    I remember we were around 13 K during summer or something... ah.

    Very nice.
