Yeah it takes 10 WU's completed successfully on your passkey to start getting the bonus points. A fast way to get those 10 completed WU's is to fold 10 smp WU's they usually go pretty fast depending on your CPU, with an 8 core you can usually get the 10 in a day or 2.
If you did not get a passkey you need to go here http://folding.stanford.edu/home/faq/faq-passkey/#ntoc3 and get one. The passkey is tied to you. You can use any user name or team you want with it once you get the 10 WU's completed you will start receiving bonus points as long as you stay above a 80% successful completion rate.
I have heard some people say when you switch names or teams you need to requalify the 10 WU's but I have never had to requalify when I have done it in the past. Just don't loose the passkey.
Thanks for the warm welcome, even though I've been lurking far longer than I have created an account on this forum. I probably can't get my CPU to fold well because my CPU gets real toasty at around 70C on stock clocks (3.5 GHz).
I did prior research about the limits of my 6 core i7-3930k, the intel specifications say that 66.8C is the highest temperature intended for the chip.
