gone through quite a few work units... i'm giving the PS3 a 12 hour rest every 2 days or so.. if i'm not gaming, its folding.

my name on the PS3 and F@H is the same as here.

Great!
I see by today's stats, you are at #280.. with 6 WUs.
353743 280 GodSquirrel 2344 6 33258

but with the prowess of the PS3 and some 'fast' WUs, you should climb the ranks very quickly!

Go for it!!

Nice goin GS... got mine folding too! What's good about the PS3 too is it's running way cooler than I expected. I did place my ps3 on a laptop cooler just in case tho :lol:

If only my xbox 360 could fold too :P

the xbox 360 would be a nice folding machine during the winter, cut down on a heating bill =) but yeah it would be nice to be able to fold on both consoles.


but yeah i as well was very surprised at how cool the ps3 was after almost one strait 24 hour period of folding. i keep it on quite often now.

Any idea on how it fares on power consumption at full load? I've been debating picking one up.

That second link on the PS3 said it all! About the same power consumption as a high-end PC.
For want to know the wattage consumed by any device, the Kill-A-Watt device is great. Just plug it in between the outlet and device.. up to 15 amps.. and direct read-out.
