    You'll need an i7 4c/8t @ at least 3.5ghz or a 6c/12t @ at least ~2.8ghz in order to complete a bigadv in time. For anything slower, you'll just want standard SMP

    GPU2 uses so little overhead that you can use all of the CPU cores for Folding. Find out how many stable core you have and use them all.

    BTW, as much as I like the underdog AMD, (depending on bulldozer) may I recommend going Intel for your next build, especially considering that you are interested in Folding.

    Planning on building a SB rig? :D

    Just be sure to watch temps on that laptop, and as buck said, every point helps!

    Definitely be careful with that, laptops, especially with dedicated GPUs, can run very hot.

    Slightly OT, but my roommate's Dell laptop stopped working. When he called for warranty, a technician came and opened his laptop and saw the GPU chip had melted on to the motherboard...lol. And he didn't even game or fold.

    Im Devon (SpeedsticK)
    I started using the TPU team number a few months ago,
    But am now just making a post about it

    Currently i have 6 and sometimes 7 computers all using the High Performance GPU F@H Client
    all day.
    My computer currently is running it off of an XFX Nvidia 9500GT low profile GPU, next to my XFX 6870 BE
    But it will soon be upgraded back up to an Nvidia GT240 (so will the rest of the 7 computers)

    Anyways, just wanted to make a post since i haven't already :p :toast:

    P.S. I think im currently #154 on the TPU F@H Stats page

    hello

    I am adrianx26 I join yesterday to team TPU

    At work place I have one pc phenom x4 9850 BE and ati hd 5570 running boinc manager

    I also have 2-3 old pc that i can set for folding but i dont know if this old pc are good for this job

    this are dual cpu P3 at 700mhz with 512mb, an slot A k7-at 650mhz with 128, an amd xp1800 at 1.3ghz (I'm not sure).

    also I have at home 3 pc and one laptop.

    the idea is to use cpu and gpu. for folding... but from boinc manager i dont see any use of GPU

    I'm not new to IT or grid, but I dont use grid computing in daily jobs. My grid computing is reduce to Passware and network rendering

    so if can same from TPU give me an idea ... I'm open mind

    Welcome! Nice to hear that you want to run BOINC (WCG) on the CPU's and Folding on your GPU's. If the old PC's that you are talking about won't run WCG, you could run the uni-processor Folding client on them, (we recommend the console client, but it doesn't matter for uni) but the PPD would be so low that it might not be worth it to you. I have an AMD 4000+ single core running Folding and it gets all of 125 PPD.:eek:

    As for your GPU's, I'll answer that over in: *** F@h Tech Assistance Thread ***

    I also joined. (I actually posted in the Folding@home team thread first - oops) I run WCG on my CPU and F@h on my GPU.

    I know you ppl put a lot of info about F@H,but now i have to go and will let my rig working so i cant search for answers,what i want to know is why did the SMP stop at 2%,is this normal? The CPU is at 100% usage. Thanks!

    +1 like Bogmali said. CPU runs slower than GPU, but it will update nonetheless.

    Howdy I'm just a guy about to leave the army and move into the civilian sector. I started folding at Ft. Huachuca in 2008. I have a Phenom II X4 965@4Ghz, XFX 5970 and 8GB DDR3. I am using the beta V7 with advanced options and went from ~3500 PPD to 14-15K PPD.
