Poem@Home Gpu support!

From Poem@Home:

We will release a new client by the end of next week. This client will be incompatible with the current client. Therefore we will starve the server of workunits the next week. Starting Monday no new workunits will be generated. We will then take the server offline on Friday to do a server upgrade to enable GPU client compatibility. This release will still be without GPU support. We expect the GPU support to be ready hopefully one week after.

By joining this project you will contribute to a computational approach to
  • predict the biologically active structure of proteins
  • understand the signal-processing mechanisms when the proteins interact with one another
  • understand diseases related to protein malfunction or aggregation
  • develop new drugs on the basis of the three-dimensions structure of biologically important proteins.

GPU support in World Community Grid entering Beta in January!

   GPU support in World Community Grid entering Beta in January.

   The September 2011 update to the Help Conquer Cancer project has been posted. In this update, we announce work presented earlier this year at the High-Performance Computing Symposium in Montreal: the development of an OpenCL (GPU) implementation of HCC. This GPU version is currently running in our lab. We are pleased with its performance, and anticipate its eventual launch on the World Community Grid.

Project of the month is World Community Grid

   Project for upcoming month is World Community Grid.

 Projects inside World Community Grid are:

   You can join World Community Grid here: Click
Once you have everything running Join "My efforts against childhood cancer" team.
You can join our team by logging in to your World community grid profile at WCG homapage"click here" and in your profile "find a team" and search with "My efforts against childhood cancer" or use this link to our teampage "Click"

   For those with Gpus:
Milkyway@home for AMD Gpus and for Nvidia gpus.

Dnetc@Home is closed

Dnetc@Home project have been closed.
Read more from Dnetc@home website

Don't worry there is another project running with same goals as Dnetc@home.
Project is Moo!Wrapper . Same applications for same hardware(gpus,cpus) with Dnetc@home and same points.

There's always Milkyway@Home for AMD 48xx,58xx,69xx series gpus.
For Nvidia gpus GpuGrid and Primegrid.

Milkyway@Home uses the BOINC platform to harness volunteered computing resources, creating a highly accurate three dimensional model of the Milky Way galaxy using data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This project enables research in both astroinformatics and computer science.

GpuGrid : is a novel distributed supercomputing infrastructure made of many NVIDIA graphics cards joined together to deliver high-performance all-atom biomolecular simulations.Running GPUGRID on GPUs innovates volunteer computing by delivering supercomputing class applications on a cost effective infrastructure which will greatly impact the way biomedical research is performed.

PrimeGrid's primary goal is to bring the excitement of prime finding to the "everyday" computer user. By simply downloading and installing BOINC and attaching to the PrimeGrid project, participants can choose from a variety of prime forms to search. With a little patience, you may find a large or even record breaking prime and enter into Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database as a Titan!
PrimeGrid's secondary goal is to provide relevant educational materials about primes. Additionally, we wish to contribute to the field of mathematics.
Lastly, primes play a central role in the cryptographic systems which are used for computer security. Through the study of prime numbers it can be shown how much processing is required to crack an encryption code and thus to determine whether current security schemes are sufficiently secure.

Waiting for AMD FX-8120 and Corsair H100 Liquid CPU Cooler to arrive.

  Waiting for missing parts to arrive. Corsair H100 Liquid Cpu Cooler is on it's way and should arrive in next 2 days, but no AMD FX-8120 "Bulldozer" cpus have arrived to importers so far. Can't wait to get new Boinc Cruncher tested, tweaked and crunching for a good cause.

New parts for Boinc Crunchers!!

Yesterday i decided to install new upgrades to Boinc Crunchers.

BoincOne: got Gigabyte GA-970A-UD AM3+ motherboard with old PII x6 1055T@3.85ghz,2x2gb ddr3 Kingston HyperX@1720mhz,Intel 40gb SSD,AMD5830 and NEW Evga GTX 460, Thermaltake ToughPower XT 775W,Scythe Mugen b 2 and Xigmatek Midgard with 6 Scythe Gentle Typhoons.

BoincTwo: Got the old Crossfire Asus mobo with Athlon x3@x4,2x2gb ddr3 Kingston, Amd 6870+4850, Corsair TX650

Boinc3: Asus motherboard,Amd 4850,2x1gb ddr3,Modecon 620W. Once Bulldozer is released this rig will get Athlon x3@x4 and Bulldozer goes to main rig and PII x6 goes to BoincerTwo .

  Needed to install Windows 7 all over again. Guess what, it took 10 times before it did go without any issues with the installation. All kinds of errors and everything did go wrong. Well once i ran installation with minimum parts i got it to work. Not sure what was that all about, but i think Gigabyte motherboard didn't like my AMD 5830 that much. I lost 500gb harddisc in process. Just won't spin anymore.

Btw took me all day yesterday to get rigs working :D

Docking@Home: Creating new and improved medicines

Docking@Home is a project which uses Internet-connected computers to perform scientific calculations that aid in the creation of new and improved medicines. The project aims to help cure diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Docking@Home is a collaboration between the University of Delaware, The Scripps Research Institute, and the University of California - Berkeley. It is part of the Dynamically Adaptive Protein-Ligand Docking System project and is supported by the National Science Foundation.

How Does It Work?

Before new drugs can be produced for laboratory testing, researchers must create molecular models and simulate their interactions to reveal possible candidates for effective drugs. This simulation is called docking. The combinations of molecules and their binding orientations are infinite in number. Simulating as many combinations as possible requires a tremendous amount of computing power. In order to reduce costs, researchers have decided that an effective means of generating this computing power is to distribute the tasks across a large number of computers.

How Can I Help?

By downloading a free program developed at University of California - Berkeley called BOINC, you can contribute your computer's idle processing cycles to the Docking@Home project. It's safe, easy to setup, and runs only when you want it to so it won't affect your ability to use your computer. If you are interested in finding out more information, you can read more about the project and the science behind it, or if you are ready to help, you can get started below.
