The K7S5A has to be one of the best boards to build a folder around..... scrounge a video card and a hard drive and you've got one.

The great thing to do, if you can, is just get a good stepping Duron or Athlon-B chip that can tolerate a bump from 100 MHz FSB to 133 MHz FSB at 1.85 volts. Just pencil in the L7's and set to 133 fsb and away you go.

yes the Duron/K7S5a combo is probably one of the most used in Folding@home....i wish i had the 100$ to get this set...and also i believe that the K7s5a aloows you to change fsb....so you dont need to change to L7s....i thought it had 66/100/133 options...or am i wrong?

I have the K7S5A in two of my folders using the OC bios from Ocworkbench. The Duron 1.2 is using 112/112 FSB/Memory for 1350 mhz, while the Thunderbird 1.4 is running at 138/138 for 1450. Voltage is default on both. I have had no probs with these boards at all.

Who needs 256 MB of RAM for a dedicated folder? 64 MB should be plenty if you just run Win98 or ME....

Don't want to seem too ignorant, but what is Overfoldix. And does it run better (faster) than the text version in Windows.

Is it for Linux, Unix or what. I am really curious. Thanks...

Also do any of you guys know what the difference between Folding@home and Distributed Folding is????

They both appear on the statsman.org page and I am feeling a little confused.

PS just got to 100 points for Team 32...still going strong.

Thanks David, I will have to give it a try on my celly 533, when I get it running again. Needs a case and memory. Might take a couple of weeks.

I appreciate the quick response...
