First of all, Hearts and & Prayers to Joshs family.....

What do you guys think about this:

I know many us(including myself) build pcs for other people. What if we folded one work unit on the pc being built as the burn-in test. Not only to help our team out, but with it working the cpu, you should be able to see if there is any problems. Then after the fold is complete, you can take the program off and send to the user! You could also use a free internet service like Juno(offers free internet for 10 hours a month for dial up)to send the WU in. Would be any easy way to test the machine I would think!

I think it's a great idea. In fact it has beeb discussed a little bit before. I'm not sure which tread it was in. I have done it on a couple of my builds already that were my standard gaming machine configuration where I could just install a harddrive I have set up with the drivers matching the machine, then put a fresh drive in for delivery. The way you suggested would work as well. I've thought about pointing out the benefit of using folding to burn in a machine to posters when we reply in the tech and recommendation forum, but I'm not sure how the Mod's feel about it.

good idea...it's what i do here. the only prob is the turn around time... if you don't have enought time to complete a WU then it's not going to be credited. (not that you didn't gain anything from the stress test though).

all i'm saying is if you have a 'rush job' then folding prolly wont' benifit the team but is a valid cpu stress test. but sure...but if you have the the time or "it will be done tomorrow" :wink: then yeah folding will benifit everyone! :D

I don't know about the official word on this, but it's an excellent idea.

Have played with the thought. I think you can actually combine two things here. By sending the WU in under the name of joshvee...
