    Check out the SMP guide I wrote. Just add the -bigadv flag where you have the -smp flag ;)

    Here is a short and simple -bigadv tutorial. Basically it's the same as the SMP tutorial except a few added steps. Here is the LINK for the SMP tutorial straight from the F@H page.

    Additional Steps:

    1. Passkey is needed (see tutorial on how to obtain)

    2. When you configure your client make sure you:

    a. Select "big" as your acceptable size of work assignment

    b. Do not enable the -advmethods flag

    3. Place the -bigadv flag on client shortcut.

    Follow steps 2 and 3 as seen here:

    Note: You need to have least 8 CPU cores in order to qualify and receive -bigadv work units (WU). Intel i7 9XX and 8XX processors qualify because of their 8 total threads. Minimum OC to 3.6 Ghz to qualify for the early completion bonus. I highly recommend that your OC be stable because F@H will stress your rig

    If you need further assistance PM myself or BUCK_NASTY;)

    Is there a guide for setting up HFM? If there is, I can't find it.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you please can update the post?
    Almost all the threads referred to, you will only find tutorials for Win XP/Vista and some Win7.
    Being almost 7 years now, I guess it would need an update; specially for Windows 10 and 8/8.1 users.

    Thank you a lot! :)

    OK guy's, who can help with Win 8/10? I'm still holding out on Win 7 on all my rigs. Don't know if the Fahclient is any different with the newer versions of Windoz.

    It's exactly the same on 10 and 8 and out of the 2 I would go w/ 10 as it has been producing better numbers for me, very close to my Linux based numbers too

    That's so hard, takes so much time, and is just plain difficult to quantify. Also, they keep changing F@H so what works best today may not tomorrow. Just go with what you're comfortable with.

    Not real but I only have 10 and Ubuntu so I can show those differences. Ubuntu wins too
    I'm mainly running win10 due to business reasons right now till I can convert fully and get apps to work in wine/play on Linux
