    Feanor(111frodon) is switching over to ChimPowerUp as well. He brings a very solid 60K PPD with him.

    Walk softly and carry some big PPD with you:laugh:!

    Really, I doubt that's their intention. Maybe they just don't know/care about the CC. In any case, in my eyes their work is appreciated, no matter where the points go... remember the reason why we fold.

    Me too, but it's hard to pick up sarcasm through text, and I just wanted to make sure nobody thought I was being a dick.

    Chat over @ HWC is pretty weak- headache inducing.

    Does this look alright? (C2D E8500 & Radeon HD4850):

    [​IMG]

    Also, RivaTuner is seeing GPU usage at only 50%. Is F@H using 100% of my GPU and it just isn't showing up as such, or do I need to change some setting? I want it to use 100%...

    6) For those of you Folding on Radeon HD2xxx-HD4xxx, please add the following Environmental Variables to your system. It will increase the Folding client's PPD, and reduce the load on your CPU thereby increasing the PPD for the CPU client. These won't blow your computer up.
    Where:
    XP: Computer=>Properties=>Advanced=>Environmental Variables
    Win7: Computer=>Properties=>Advanced System Settings=>Environmental Variables
    What:
    BROOK_YIELD 2
    CAL_NO_FLUSH 1
    CAL_PRE_FLUSH 1
    FLUSH_INTERVAL 128

    FLUSH_INTERVAL can be set anywhere from 128 to 256. Lower number for stability, higher for greater PPD output. CHeck the load on your card (in CCC) and increase the number until the load's close to 100% and the load on the CPU is fairly low.
    Forum members have had success with settings betweeen 128 and 200

    I'm pushing 150k ppd, with a 2600k, w3570, five GTX 460's, two GTX 275's and one GTX 275 co-op. I also have a GTX 470 and a GTX 460 sitting on the sidelines. Yep I went to big and didn't have the amps in the basement to power them.:banghead:

    I wanted to pick up a 460 just for the CC, if you want a spot for it to fold my board has the room and my PSU has the amps.

    Crap. It looks like HWC's server is down. I think the Smack Box brought it to it's knees!

    Looks like it. There were over 100 people on, the server probably couldn't support that kind of load. Hopefully it'll be up soon.

    And on the GPU note, setting FLUSH_INTERVAL to 256 helped, but my GPU is still running only about 70%. Is there anything else I can do?
