    Should I fold on my 560TI together with the 2600K running smp? Or would that hurt my smp output to much?

    I fold both my GTX470s with my i7, I just reduced the SMP's thread count by 2 to leave a core free to feed the GPUs. But I am definitely not the most experienced folder out here, so you might want to hear another opinion.

    You can safely run both, and will in most cases get the most PPD that way.

    By all means. The 13K that you get from the 560 will well out pay the drop in SMP. It's not worth it with -bigadv though.

    Project P10121

    Anybody have any information on the SMP Project P10121?

    So far I completed 6% and it has a consistent 14.04 TPF.
    HFM doesn't show the PPD or credit.
    I updated the projects from Stanford to no avail.
    My other SMP WUs have a deadline of several days but this WU has a deadline of 07/09/11.
    Lucky for me it should complete 30 minutes before the end of this Chimp Challenge!!!

    If you were running -bigadv and kept your GPU's offline to maximize your points but have now switched to SMP, turn the GPU's on unless they're like HD2xxx-HD4xxx.

    Yes a5 is -bigadv, I downloaded FAHClient v7 and fired it up and it seems to work perfect with the a5 on the side.

    I'm just repeating what I've heard. If you're talking about a hex core -bigadv, you will lose more points from running a GPU than you will make with the GPU. This is especially true if the GPU is a Radeon.

    Is that the case when we run the cpu on V2 while running the gpu's on V7 at the same time?

    Also, if you're switching to -advmethods from -bigadv, reconfigure your clients to receive normal or small WU. If you leave it at "big" it will pick up these WU's that can take up to a full day fold (P10121 comes to mind). Normal and small WU's average between 4-6 hours for completion.
