Redline Folding @ OC3D

Team 98860 background

The Redline name started as an idea by a member of the Futuremark forums, Phil, who created Redline 3D as an elite overclocking team. Redline 3D was an invitation only group selected by Phil and OK'ed by existing members. Thus a rather elite group of overclockers were chosen for their ability and accomplishments with their given hardware, but not necessarily because they were on top of the ORB. This happened back in the heyday of MadOnion and into early Futuremark, which used to be a forum heavily involved in overclocking and benchmarking.

Even to those who were not on the Redline 3D team, Phil was known by most on the forums as a helpful, knowledgeable, all-around great person. It was a shock to all of us when we found out he had passed away in a swimming accident.

Several years had passed when kup decided to create a folding team in Phil’s honor. Initially the team only had a few members, all of whom defected from Futuremark’s folding team because of a lack of support. These members were kup, stevehat1, and nikk. Several more people followed shortly after as members of Futuremark continued to defect. The idea was to have a forum where we could actively promote the folding cause and campaign for new members without worrying about breaking forum rules.

At the height of Redline Redux —appropriately named in honor of Phil— there were only 12 regular members. Yet we bonded and remained competitive. There were ups and downs, but eventually we found ourselves at a point where we could seriously contend for a spot in the top 100 teams in the Folding@Home project. To give this some perspective, there are currently over 1,500 active folding teams being supported by over 460,000 active processors from all over the world. The average team in the top 100 has over 140 members—and yet our 12-person team was closing in on spot #100.

It was around this time that kup was approached by TTL at OC3D with the prospect of Redline joining OC3D and merging teams. The proposal was enticing, and it was intended to benefit both Redline and OC3D: Redline gets a larger home with the potential to grow the folding team, and OC3D revives its then-ailing folding team with new spirit and power; it was a win-win. We decided to go for it, and here we are today: united, more powerful, and now bearing down on the top 50 teams!


So, what exactly IS folding?  

The Folding@Home project has been around for almost 10 years, promoted and advertised by such organizations as EVGA, MaximumPC and HardOCP, and the most common question we still come across is “what is folding?” To put it simply, Folding@Home is a project created by Stanford University to simulate and understand protein folding. Why is this important? Because when proteins in the body don’t fold correctly, it can ultimately lead to the development of diseases like Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s, sickle-cell, cystic fibrosis, and cancer. The goal of the Folding@Home project is to better understand protein folding in an attempt to one day be able to cure these diseases.

Folding@Home uses the processing power of your computer or PS3 to simulate protein folding. A couple hundred thousand computers around the world simultaneously work on separate parts of the protein, breaking it up in small enough sections so that the work can be completed in a timely manner. This is called distributed computing. Before this concept of distributed computing, the only way to perform such extensive calculations was to use a supercomputer. And yet the world’s second fastest supercomputer, the Tianhe-1A, has only half the processing power of the entire Folding@Home project. To put it another way, Folding@Home has more processing power than some of the fastest supercomputers in the world combined, totaling over 6.3 petaflops. This is an amazing amount of processing power that is only possible through the contributions of every single participant in the project.


Okay, but does F@H actually do anything?

For the quickest information about Stanford’s results, go to their Diseases Page to read about many of the diseases they are currently studying through folding, how protein folding relates to disease, and a timeline of their work on each disease. Consider this a sort of overview for most of us who aren’t technical enough to read their peer-reviewed papers. For those of you who have a more thorough understanding of the science, you can read about all of their peer-reviewed papers here. Keep in mind, as Stanford notes, that these papers are written for other scientists, so the content is very technical. Still, going through the abstracts can give you a great sense of what Stanford is working on as well as the kinds of results they are seeing. It is also worth noting that Stanford publishes their results publicly, for everybody to read. Doing so helps to ensure that not just Stanford scientists, but scientists around the world are able to use the Folding@Home results towards their own independent research if they so choose.

Have there been any huge breakthroughs in the science since the project started? Many critics might say no, simply because a de-facto cure has not been discovered for any of these diseases yet. But what these critics don’t understand is that we can’t expect to see concrete results overnight. There have been results, and lots of them: one recent (and particularly notable) paper involves folding the Abeta peptide, which, according to Stanford, is believed to be linked to Alzheimer’s disease. The research has found a stable form of a misfolded Abeta, which could lead to new methods of Alzheimer’s therapy.  More information on this exciting research can be found on the F@H blog here. Is it groundbreaking? That’s up to the individual to decide, but we may be witnessing the beginning of some very promising breakthroughs in this type of research. The point, though, is that even if no groundbreaking research has surfaced yet, the Folding@Home project has still enabled scientists for the first time to be able to look at protein folding in a way that was previously not possible. Truthfully, we are probably at the beginning of a long-winded road towards the ability to cure some of these diseases. But this project is not about instant results. It’s about working towards something that might one day save the lives of millions of people, including yourself or a close relative; which brings us to why we fold…


Why we fold

What keeps us all folding? Why do some of us endure the searing heat and annoying hum of multiple dedicated folding computers in our bedrooms? Why do most us find ourselves checking the stats page 8 times a day, waiting for that recently completed work unit to show up under our name? If you ask anybody who folds, most will give you a personal reason. It’s usually because a friend or relative has been affected by one of the mentioned diseases. In some cases the person folding has been personally affected by something like cancer. In the case of the Redline team, we continue to fold with Phil in our thoughts and as our inspiration. Many other teams have similar motivation. Yet the varying reasons why people fold share a common, underlying idea: for the vast majority of us who are not scientists, Folding@Home gives us empowerment. The project gives us the encouragement that we too can contribute to curing something as complicated and atrocious as cancer. It allows us to help in one of the only ways we can: by donating computational time that makes the Folding@Home project possible. It’s a way to actually see how our donations are being used by science, unlike other types of monetary donations. But most of all, it’s a chance for us to do some good, be a little competitive, and have some fun all at the same time.

 

How do I get started?
 
There are several types of F@H clients that are available for use depending on the type of hardware your computer has and your computer’s operating system. For simplicity, we will show you how to use the program FAH GPU Tracker V2 which allows you to fold on your CPU and certain GPUs. This is the easiest way to get set up and folding quickly. Once you become more familiar with F@H, you may eventually opt to run more advanced types of clients.

Of course, if you are already familiar with F@H, you can skip right ahead and configure your client(s) to fold for team 98860 – that is the Redline team here at OC3D. You can also head on over to our Folding Forum for help at any time if you have questions.

Setup

1. First, go hereand obtain a F@H passkey. This passkey is used to help identify your unique contribution to the project, and it allows you to receive a point bonus for running certain clients. Fill out your donor name (the username you would like to fold under) and email address and Stanford will email your passkey to you. Keep your passkey in a safe place and don’t give it out. You will use it later.

2. Now click here to download the latest version of the Tracker program. Extract the contents into a folder anywhere you like.

3. Find FAH GPU Tracker V2.exe in the folder you just created and run it. A dialog box will open asking if you would like to download the FAH clients. Click yes. You should see the following:

Redline Folding @ OC3D  


4. Once the download is finished, click on Setup > Configure in the Tracker program. It should open up the following window:

Redline Folding @ OC3D  

 

5. Check the box at the top left to enable CPU folding. If your CPU has two or more cores, select to use the SMP client. Otherwise, leave the selection on the single-core client. For SMP settings, you typically want to allow all CPU cores. If you have a fast 8-thread CPU (or higher) and run it 24/7, you may wish to select the –bigadv option for extra big work units. Select the Add –advmethods checkbox if you want to run beta work units. Leave the Client Options at the bottom as they are.

6. If you have a video card that is capable, select the Enable GPU folding option. All Nvidia cards 8800 series and up are capable of folding, and Nvidia 400/500 series cards work best. ATI HD 2000 series and up also support folding, but it is not currently recommended with GPU Tracker (for ATI users, try the new F@H version 7 client). To set up GPU folding, either click Autodetect GPUs button or you can choose to set it up manually. First, select the Enable GPU0 checkbox. If you are running an Nvidia 400 or 500 series card, select the GPU3 client. For non-Fermi cards, leave it blank. Typically you don’t need to force GPU selection. Finally, select the Add –advmethods checkbox if you wish to run beta work units. Repeat this process if you want to run F@H on multiple cards.

Note: It is recommended you update to the latest driver version of your video card for GPU folding.
 
7. Now we need to configure your username and team number. Click on the Tracker Settings tab at the top of the Configuration window.

Redline Folding @ OC3D  

Under Name, type in the same name you used in Step 1. Type in 98860 for the team number (this is Redline @ OC3D’s number) and finally copy + paste the passkey you obtained in Step 1 in the Passkey box. Click Apply and make sure your name and team number appear at the bottom of the main GPU Tracker window. You can now click Start all Clients to begin folding.

8. As you can see, the Tracker has many other options you can use to get the most out of F@H. This guide only covers the basics to help you get folding right away, but feel free to play with these settings or ask in the forum if you have any questions about these.


PS3 Client

Sony’s Playstation 3 can also run Folding@Home! If you have PS3 system version 1.6 or later, there will be a F@H icon in the Network column of the main PS3 menu. Simply configure it to use whatever folding name you want and team 98860.


As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the Redline Folding at OC3D forum. We have a very active team and there is always somebody who will be willing and able to help you.

That is it! You are now folding with the rest of us for team 98860: Redline @ OC3D. Your computer is helping to cure disease using your idle computing time. Welcome to the team!

If you had typed "I can't download the clients because I get this error" it would have been clearer. But as to the no internet connection error I don't know what is causing it. Quote

Great article very informative thanks

I did try SETI once, but I turned GPU mode (or something) on and a few minutes later my PC started to make this weird half-rattle noise.

Not like I have a dedicated bench for this sort of thing, I could run it when I'm not doing much though. very little helps...right?Quote

12-04-2012, 12:24:24

alfredthetomato
Sheza, the SMP (CPU) client gets out of your way when you need to do other stuff (I can comfortably game with it on), but if you are doing GPU folding, I'd say only have that on when your not doing much, it even makes web-browsers slow.Quote

I set this up on my PS3 couple of days ago, was a bit disappointed you have to login to the life channel to get the FAH to start, I was hoping I could just hit the on button and not have to do anything else. I've been an obsessive folder since the BBC climate change boinc which I think was 2005-6 I have folded for Rosetta since 2007. I should post some pics of rigs really but they look total mess down in my basement with side. My 3930K rig has a H100 hanging of the side of my Antec P183 with zip ties I have a couple of spare rigs, a 775 and a 1366 which I might use for FAH, have to see how things go, my electric bill is pretty scary Quote

As you said in the article there is no de-facto cure, but it's awesome knowing that you are helping in some way to find cures or even preventative measures against these awful diseases that have taken away so many precious lives.Quote

After the first setup you can select this as an option in the PS3 menu. Just go to the Life Icon and press triangle, this will give you some options, one of which is auto-start. you can set this to 10 minutes (lowest value), this will start the life with playstation after the console has been idle on the menu for the set amount of minutes.Quote

You can use as many computers/laptops as you want. All you need to do is download the client(s) on each machine and enter the same details on each one and you're good to go. Simples Quote

Just started folding last night and signed up for OC3D this morning. Have been enjoying watching Tom's rambling videos since I started into building and OC'ing 3 months ago. Now I just need to hook up my PS3 and get that running 24x7 as well.

JohnnyHundo,

Just a heads up, as much as the PS3 can Fold, the cost to do so, versus the points returned probably makes it somewhat worthless to use. Just a heads up so you don't waste loads of eleccy on a low yield machine. Quote

I came from Overclockers Australia & have been folding there for some time, i was ranked 257th. Nick = hellholefred

* Question - I downloaded FAH GPU Tracker V2 & was wondering if it works in SLI? I can enable 1 or both GPU & it says they are both on project 8009 so im guessing it works in SLI or am i wrong?

As far as I know each card runs individually and aren't used in dual mode for a WU, so you should be running two lots of 8009 projects, one for each card.Quote

Welcome to 98860!!!

I usually leave the SLI connector connected but SLI disabled in the nvidia control panel, it should work with SLI enabled, but sometimes it messes up....

That's been my experience anywayQuote

As SieB said, they will work on individual WUs. SLI is not used for F@H. In the past you had to disable SLI even to fold. Now it will work with SLI enabled, but won't use SLI.

You need to do a couple things to get a GTX680 to work. Check my post here:

Just wondering, I have an HP slimeline dual core that I could probably leave running for 24hours would it be worth doing with a dual core? It's not overclockable and isn't using a very modern dual core like an i3 or anything but it's such low power consumption I could stick it in a corner leave it running for 24/7 and plug a monitor in every now and then to check on it.

I know there is PPD would I be racking up enough points to make it worth doing with a dual core, if you need exact spec I'll fire it up and tell you.Quote

What is the difference between FAH GPU Tracker V2 and F@H version 7 client which are mentioned in the article? Isn't it better to use the newer version?

EDIT - I have installed the v7 client and am now folding away just waiting for this unit to finish and see if my CPU usage drops down since I still want to be able to use my machine

As far as I know there isn't a way to get the viewer to work with GPU Tracker.Quote

Was trying to decide to fold for either ocuk or redline/oc3d but after reading thread i have decided to fold for you guys.Not a great spec tbh a i7 950 @ 4gz and a 6950 which i heard are not worth folding along with smp clients?Anyways i'm getting a Intel Core i7-3930K and a 670 in September so can give you guys a little boost i guess.Quote

Understandable, seeing as the PPD was not very good at all.Quote

To any new members. Please don't worry about what hardware you have. Saying you only have this and that. If you fold on it, you are doing a damn lot more than someone sitting on a 3770k with dual 680GTX and not folding at all.

Welcome every one, if you have questions, no matter how silly or simple you think they may be, we will be more than happy to help!Quote

Hey Guys, I tried joining the "team" a few months ago but found after installing the "client" it was slowing everything down dramatically even though it was reasonably high spec, I73820, GTX590's rampage iv extreme etc. I must have been doing soemething very wrong I assume? Is it better to run a separate rig solely for folding as I have loads of unwanted, unused hardware????Quote

Well it depends what you are trying to do. When gaming I disable folding. Sometimes when I'm just browsing the web I'll disable GPU folding but leave CPU folding going. The client is supposed to release the cPU/GPU when it's being requested by another app. The client should have the lowest priority for resources.Quote

Hi guys, I need help, my folding programs just stops working. It just finished up to a 100% (not sure if the work was sent) and it never accepted jobs anymore for more than a half day. I'm using a mac running snow leopard 10.6.8. and FAH client control 7.2.9. Do I need to reinstall the software? Thanks. Quote
