View Full Version : Is this normal?

I've been folding for about 2 days now and completely new at this. I just finished my first WU which was worth 162 points. Here is where I'm a little confused. When I first load F@H and check on its progress its says something like 30 mins till the frame ends, about 10 mins later it will say that its doing the frames @ 15s/frame. The one I finished earlier today said it was 7500 frames which took about 28 hrs to complete. The one I'm doing now is 7500 as well and is said to be completed in 22 Hrs (Started at a little over one day when I began as well).

Not sure what is going on with the Frame times, if you closed the folding program and restarted it that may have something to do because it thinks it did all those past frames in 20 min or something. Most work units take a very long time as well, 241pointers average I would say is around 24-60hours depending on how fast your computer is and what processor is running. P4's and Dothans crank out the work units like nobodys business especially QMD's and the 450 pointers, while AMD's tend to be fairly crappy when it comes to folding however,they chew through tinkers and amber cores very well.

Are you using EMIII if not use it. If you are then the frames are not real frames. Atleast last time I looked there were no WUs over 400 frames. Though the FAH graphical client says like a couple thousand it is talking about something else. Sorry my info is a bit sloppy. Pc has been broken so I havent been able to fold for some time now. So I have forgot most of the numbers.
The graphical client reports frames differently than the text client. Most folks in this forum will be refering to frames based on psummary (http://vspx27.stanford.edu/psummary.html)

Thanks for the welcome :) My computer isn't the greatest, but I'm going to try and get any many WU's completed at possible.

hey blackmoonmike... welcome to the Fold!
If you haven't had a chance to, enlist some help to join in the FOld... a local library... or even a hospital or lawyer's office. You'd be surprised at the amount of people that wouldn't mind donating about 5 minutes of their computer time to you so that you can installed F@H and they can help find a cure for cancer.
