    I ask ços i have 3 different - low power PC's folding, but they are only doing maybe 30ppd!

    I'll convert them over to the WCG project if it's more efficient?

    Maybe neither? Sounds like 3 boxes that might need to be retired :)

    Specs?

    They would be more efficient crunching. My 3.0ghz P4 takes like 10+ hours to complete a project but 24/7 is like 2+ a day!

    For some reason the CPU is more stressed when it folds (based on my experience):confused:
