Temperatures

I just started Folding tonight and just about to finish a WU, but ive noticed my cpu temp has gone up a lot. I usually idle @ 29 C
but now its @ 44 C without me doing anything. I relize my CPU clocks are being used so its not really idleing. Is this alright? Im going to leave it on all day while im in school (7am-6pm because of sports). Could the extra heat cause any damage or something soon or in a few months? I dont want anything to happen while im not here and come home to a overheated and crippled computer.

Also..... just an as if..........

If the computer overheated and it locked up, would the temperature continue to rise to the point where the components would damage?

folding uses 100% of your cpu or whats left over that would total 100%
so your comp is put under pretty heavy stress when you fold.

so those your temps will rise, but that much is questionable.

mine went up only 4-6c from idle when i fold. so that is something to watch.

oh and 44c is an ok load temp for an oced comp, but its just a 15c rise from idle to load that worries me.

cooling

I dont overclock except my video card is OC'd slightly but there is little heat comeing from it. I could add more cooling. I have a 120mm fan lying around which I took out because it was too loud and I didnt need it. I could put it in and only run it when im not home....... or mabey I need it when I am home? I dont think ive seen my CPU temp this high, except when I was running another program that took 100% of my CPU. Since it idled so low I didnt test the load temp.

GO TEAM 32!

lol i am now folding on my family computer (the only 1 that has internet access at the moment) it is a PIII 866 and its a dell so it old has basics (128mb of ram, who knows what vid card) it will help. what does it mean when it says WU Progress: 2/100? doesn that mean 2 WU's are completed or 2/100 (2 over 100) of 1 WU is completed?

Looks good. Welcome to the team.
When the client downloads part of a protein to work on it divides it into frames, sort of like a movie. The WU that you have has 100 frames to be calculated and so far it has completed 2 of those frames. When it reaches 100 frames it will have completed 1 WU and will send the results to Stanford, or at least it should.
In this case 2/100 means that you completed 2% of 1 WU.

Hey, just started folding for team 32 last night (about 15 hours ago) and turned in a WU. I have two comps on it, the one in my sig and another 450 P3. Maybe I can get my 800 laptop in this too. Actually, my 450 is just about to return another unit bumping me up to two and my other is at about 80 percent. whoopee! (I am forceflow2 for [email protected])
