Dunno if this is cool or not seeing as it's news from another forum but...well this is of epic proportions.

What is Folding?

In the most basic of terms, Folding at Home is the mimicking andlogging of the way a Protein Folds. A Protein that MIS-FOLDS producesan ab-normal cell which in turn can lead to a cancerous cell. Learninghow a Protein SHOULD fold will lead us to understanding to how itMIS-FOLDS. Hence, Folding at Home.

Here is a link to Stanfords Main Page for more info.

Why I fold?

Cancer has had a big effect on my family, and folding is where I feel I can fight back.

I fight cancer on two fronts, my business and folding.

I own a Home Care Business where I send nurses to homes to care for theelderly AT THEIR homes. One aspect of my business is we take care ofChemo-Therapy patients at home also. We take care of their ailmentswhile on Chemo.

In Miami, my parents own a Hospice Staffing Company, where they sendNurses to take care of patients on their last months of life. Thosedeemed to have less than 6 months to live.

This is where I get my passion for Folding from. Seeing/hearing/talkingand interacting with people who suffer from all these diseases makesyou want to do something about it.

How can I fold too?

Here is a thread about why members of our Team Fold also:

Here are pics of the "farm" part of my folding farm.

Sorry they are not as cable friendly as I wanted them. When I have time I will cable manage better:

Lots of boxes (not all of them)

The Command Center.

Top Half of the shelf with 5 Rigs of 20 GPUs

Bottom Half of the shelf with 3 rigs of 12 GPUs

Closeup of Rig #2, 4x MSI 8800GT 512mb / P6N-Diamond

Closeup of Rig #3, 4x Asus 8800GT 512mb / P6N-Diamond

Top 3 rigs into 1 HD Cage

(Middle Shelf) Rig #4, 4x eVGA 8800GS / P6N Diamond

(Middle Shelf) Rig #5, 4x eVGA 8800GS / P6N Diamond

Closeup of Rig #6 (#7, #8 are exactly the same) 4x eVGA 8800GS / P6N Diamond

I still have 1 more P6N-Diamond + 4x PNY 8800GT to build, when I have the time.

EDIT: Just to clear the air. I have a total of 16 rigs:

- 4 rigs have 1x GPU

- 1 rig has 3x GPU

and 11 P6N-Diamonds currently:

> 8 have 4x GPUs (pictured below)

> 2 have 3x GPUs (waiting on the other 2 GPUs)

> 1 (un-built) with 4x GPUs, waiting on components

46/51 GPUs online.

Though I suppose he has put it to a better use then running a game..
.though to be honest he makes me feel like a despicable human being because having that kind of rig I would just focus on playing games at the highest quality and rendering Cinema4D stuff at high speed and quality.
Though further reading seems to say that the motherboards aren't linked together and therefore aren't working as one omega unit....
