It must be cold in Russia this time of year.  I rented a 4x3090 system in Russia and the GPUs have stayed about 55C the whole time!

Vast.ai is the cheapest I've found.  Individuals (or companies) will offer their GPUs to be rented out.  Pricing varies somewhat based on who owns the hardware and what hardware you are renting.  For the 4x3090 system that I mentioned, it was $2/hr.

 

I plan to make a post in the next few weeks with more details on how to get a Vast.ai instance folding and monitored by HFM.  It's not cheap for long term folding, but is quite handy at defeating @BWG and @Bastiaan_NL during the 2 days of the competition 🙂

It does help that one of them offers money to beat the other 🤣

Besides that, I've given up anyways cause it's impossible to beat @BWG straight up.

Truth. Leave it up to BWG to turn a competition into making everyone feel like they are going for scratch & sniff stickers at the bottom of a pool.
