    If I'm reading this right, this suggests a huge difference in clockspeed being the main driver between the two? Not massively suprising, I guess, if you consider the clockspeeds enterprise kit/setups will use where Linux is prevalent versus a typical enthusiast on Windows.

    Late to the party but just signed up, get my OC settings tuned in

    Crikey, that's some heat kicked out over a few hours - better go and put another 50p in the meter

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    I had a quick blast while away from the PC during Christmas period, almost caught up with Vimeous. The top of the food chain is in sight!

    What does disappoint me though is that since this time last year, the required points for top 10000 have risen from 32 million to 160 million, rather making my advance feel meaningless, and Hexus has fallen from ~#280 to #861.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    I've fired up F@H again, as it's useful for heating up my room. Has anyone worked out what's cheaper? 65W of CPU per hour or having the gas central heating on?

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    At a guess, 65W (or whatever) of CPU provided it would have been on, anyway. Otherwise, probably the central heating, though a lot depends on what you're heating. A four-bed house heated by CPU alone might, ummm ... take a while. I supposed you could always stick a 4090 in there for the extra heat output?

    I have been thinking this but as electricity is going up too, it's not as much as a free win as it may once have been.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    Gas is still way cheaper for me per unit energy, so it probably comes down to heating a single room electrically vs the entire house with gas. Even there, thermostatic radiators help avoid wasted heating.

    Last year I was heating with crypto mining, but that's gone.

    Re: The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    Thermostatic valves are, excse the pun, central to me.

    We have a main thermostat, and a system with sufficiently poor overall bslance, that without them we turn one room (lounge) into a sauna before getting others out of he arctic. The only way to get modest efficiency is (short of re-doing the whole system) is to balance various areas with thermostatic valves. Still got a few to add, but in minimally used rooms so not urgent.

    Our house was more simply out of balance. The upstairs would be hot, downstairs cold. I had a plumber add thermostat valves to the entire upstairs.

    I also changed the main thermostat for a modern digital one. When we moved in it was still the old 70's control from when the house was built, and that was just awful for comfort as it swung the house from hot to cold with a brief spell where you felt the right temperature whizz past.
