    I've got some good news and some bad news.
    The good news is that I have Free-DCs last update Pie.
    The bad news is that they closed out the day as of their third update.

    Oct 14, 2010 Pie!

    By closing out early that left bogmali as the only one with a 100K+ day. :toast:

    If Free-DC had used what I think should have been the final update then bogmali would have had a 200+ day.
    Fitseries3, msgclb and El_Fiendo were all destined to end with a 90K+ for the day.

    Congratulations to all pie club members. :toast:


    The low points don't reflect the good day we had.

    Congrats on joining the millionaire's club, now you just have to work on the upgrade to the millionaires' club.

    :twitch::respect:

    And you get an upgrade to your badge!:toast:

    Congrats to all the stoners, and to the team for the great output lately. Our average places us #19 among all of the teams. HWC, BTW, is #17, averaging 1.05 million PPD.

    Well I'm determined to make it to 100k soon, my 2 cards are currently pulling 22k PPD combined, so it won't be long :D

    I broke 4 million already? Wow... I have NOT been paying attention to my daily output as I just don't get any pie.

    The good news tonight is that the Free-DC day was 25 hours!:D
    I'm guessing they are trying to get back to a decent closing time. :)

    bogmali and Buck didn't need the extra hour to have a 100K+ day. :toast:

    Following them with a 90K+, a pair of 80K+ and a 70K+ was MStenholm, TeXBill, msgclb and Oily.

    Congratulations to all pie club members. :toast:

    Excellent job everyone, we're doing great!

    Just curious, why do you have a cert for me for 60k when farther up in the post you said I passed 70k? (I'm InfinityFX) Just curious, I'm not complaining ;)

    I thought I would just ask here instead of creating a new thread. I only just started Folding today, my CPU usage is staying at about 25%. How can I configure it to use more CPU when I'm not doing anything? Also, is there a way to make use of my GPUs? I thought I saw folders talking about that in a thread.

    You'll want SMP for the CPU (our guide is out of date) & Multi GPU ;)

    Remember, our team number is 50711, not 37726 ;)

    If you have any issues, let me know. You'll want to enable Hyperthreading for maximum performance, if you haven't already done so :)

    I like to think my contribution helps but I'm going to be selfish and keep my HT off =p I find most of the games and other programs I use to run better with HT off and overclocked to 3.6 GHz =p

    So I run this SMP AND GPU client separately? Also, I'm playing around with the SMP client at the moment, there's no actual user interface? It's just a command prompt window? I must have setup something wrong when it was asking me questions because it's still only using 25% total of my CPU.

    I'm blind in one eye and can't see out of the other!:laugh:

    I just didn't notice that you were moving so fast. That 70k milestone must have happened on the last update and all I did was count to see if there any more than during the last update.
    I'm going to bed now and it looks you're at 76,929. Are you going to hit 90K or even 100K in the coming 24 hours?

    Actually the SMP client & then 1 client per GPU ;)

    Did you create a shorcut to the client and add the -smp flag, as per the guide I linked?

    And the GPU clients you'll want are also command prompt-esque, again, you'll need shortcuts with the correct flags ;)

    EDIT:
    90k should be no issue by this time tomorrow, I have my GTX260 and GTS450 going full bore tearing through WUs, pulling about 21k combined. 100k is less likely, I doubt I'll be able to get nearly 25k next 24 hrs :ohwell:

    Yes it's working now, running at 100%. Now let me toy around with the GPU client...

    Awesome, great :)

    Mind posting a screenshot of it? And did you use a passkey and everything?

    That multi GPU guide I linked should be all you need

    If I read this correctly then you've got an i7-920 and (2) GTX 285 cards.

    So that means (3) separate clients and I'd suggest you stay with the console clients. When you are setting up more than one client on a computer you have to watch out for Machine ID and flag conflicts.

    CPU
    Machine ID: 1
    flag: -smp (minimum)

    GPU0
    Machine ID: 2
    flag: -gpu 0 (minimum)

    GPU1
    Machine ID: 3
    flag: -gpu 1 (minimum)

    The flags -gpu 0 & 1 assume you have the cards in those slots.

    Downloads

    For the GPU I'd suggest the Windows Vista/7 GPU2 Console client v6.23 at the bottom of the page.

    For the CPU I'd suggest the Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 SMP2 client console version v6.30 at the bottom of the page.

    If you had GTX 400s then you would use the GPU3 clients.

    Under the 'Installation instructions' column you can click on the 'Book' to see some guides.

    Unfortunately I'm going to bed but if you've got any question I'm sure someone is up to answer it. Good luck. Hope to see you listed as a new member tomorrow.

    I didn't know we could use the same client for different instances by just changing flags. This should make things easier.

    Also, I've never needed to use dummy plugs. Has that been fixed recently?

    ..and what about SLI/Crossfire? Do we still need to disable it to run on all gpus?

    Also, [ION], how many ppd does that P4 3.0GHz do?

    You can't. You need 1 client per GPU & 1 for SMP.

    I've never used dummy plugs, just -forcegpu flags for the 2nd & 3rd GPUs. 9600GT, GTS250, and GTS450 run fine with just a flag.

    I don't think that you need to disable SLI or CFX.

    I got about 400 PPD on the P4HT running FAH SMP (literally used for nothing else), it gets ~400 PPD for WCG :)

    @ Bogmali - I saw that the Show Your Folidng Rig tread has come back to life. Time to show your truely impressive firepower ? :)

    I expect that not all off your i7 rigs are running -bigadv all the time due to the normal lack off WU's.
