How many people here run their computers 24/7? The reason I ask is I wanted to find out if there would be interest in anyone running Folding At Home.

I do for my nephew and maybe we could start a team here for Fordmods. I run an SMP client and also a GPU one.

If you would like to find out more info on this... Folding

folding 100% on a dual core and 100% on graphics for cancer and evolution amoungst other things. leave the pc on over night occasionally for torrents. other than that, the folding i use in winter to keep me warm.

currently running the pc at work at 100% (HT'er) for 4 straight days with another 3 on the way for the weekend folding. i need to kill it as its almost dead anyway and the boss is boarder line on replacing it. COME ON!

The contacts will have gotten hot over time, no problem there, but once cool again they will retract and some will pull from their termials.


No, it won't.

Lol, believe me or don't believe me. Let it run hot for long enough then give it a rest and see what happens. I often see computers that are run off alarm systems I work with (auto printing system logs) and computers hooked up to DVRs, and they will, alot of the time, just die in the a**.


How long do you think you need to run a computer before it doesn't get any warmer? People turn their machines on and off all the time, and it would be constant warming and cooling which would have give the problem you mentioned where parts get bigger and smaller with heat.

Dust kills computers - it prohibits airflow and heat transfer. A machine running for a long time without any offline time is likely to be full of dust because people don't clean machines while they're running. It'll eventually overheat, crash, then you need to restart it and you will very quickly hit the thermal limit of the components again.

I ran the GPU client on my GTX280 for a while, but got pretty bored of the whole thing pretty quickly, then I left it running my my Q6600 based server 24/7 for a while, but I started having problems with the SMP client so I abandoned that too. Now my server spends it spare time crunching SETI units, never had a problem with that.
