    24/7 folding should pull ~15k on the i7 & ~1.5k per C2D ;)

    So you still have the potential to do quite nice PPD ;)

    Hmm.. well I am not getting that much.. console on gpu and tray client on all my CPU's. and the C2D's and the P4 are 24/7 the i7 is while I am at the PC or at the house..weekends tends to be 24hrs tho.....i dunno know why ppd is low.

    I did notice that the tray client is not running 8 threads tho only 4 threads as far as I can tell. Yes my HT is on.

    Run the SMP client on your i7, I wrote a guide for it, check the FAH section ;)

    And running the console version will magically force the app to use 8 threads instead of just 4 threads?

    Do what it says in the guide, if you use the SMP client with the -smp flag, it'll use as many threads as the system has (up to 64 IIRC)

    Teamspeak is a chat client and TPU has its own Teamspeak server.

    Techpowerup Teamspeak server!

    Not really comfortable allowing someone to remote into my rig...besides I am the one normally doing the remoting in...lol... I just can not figure out where that damn -smp and -verbosity 9 is suppose to go.

    That gives me an error..
    I am getting better info from this article>> http://fahwiki.net/index.php/How_do_I_add_flags_using_a_shortcut_to_the_console_client?

    especially this part.
    [​IMG]


    I was confused by the space after the quote part and the quote part in general...Just plain ole couldnt figure out from ION's or Buck Nasty's instructions. Thnx 4 the help mstenholm

    OKAY..I have the flags entered correctly...but if I stop my CPU session now to relaunch with the -smp -verbosity 9 flags will it force me to go threw the set up again and loosing the 64% of the work on the current job?

    just add an 8 to the end of the SMP flag.
    in otherwords
    replace the -smp flag with -smp 8

    you may need to finish the one you are doing then the next WU will use all 8 threads.

    For an easy way to set up new clients, you could try this out -

    FAH GPU Tracker V2

    Just read the set up guide.It is very easy to get going, have used it myself with my last new system.

    Only problem you will lose the work from the old client.

    Well I will let this one finish and if the next one doest prove to be any better then its not even really worth folding on my CPU.

    Bro, you have a unicore WU ;)

    Next WU you get should be a SMP WU & use all 8 threads @ 100% (vs ~27% overall usage)
