    I just realized I hadn't posted here yet. Right now I have one 2600K (stock until I RMA my mobo), one GTX 680 at 1200MHz, and two GTX 470s at 725MHz. 350k is going to be dedicated to EVGA each month but after that I'm all yours TPU.

    Hi,

    I used to fold here a long time ago, I just got back into it.

    I am running a i7 3930k @ 4.2Ghz, with a Nvidia 690.
    For folding. It looks I like I spit out between 84,000-93,000 ppd.
    Hopefully this time I stick to folding.

    Welcome back GSG-9! F@H should have the Early Return Bonus running again soon. You should see a 2-3x increase in your production. Let me know if you have any issues.

    Let me know how to get that bonus, besides that things seem to be running well on the x15 Core, my score range has widened to 77k-111k for a days work. All folds are not equal I guess.

    What are the best settings to use in the V7 client for best performance, folding will run 24/7 on the server

    Welcome!

    From the stats, it looks like you are only using the uniprocessor client. You want to use the SMP client. Check out the guide on how to setup a SMP slot and make sure you get a Passkey and put it in the client.

    Just started folding today. Not too sure how to do it, just downloaded a client and ran it, seems to be using CPU 100%. I'd prefer if it was only using less but not sure how?

    Will only be using it when I am not using the PC while its on, as its not on 24/7.

    Rig used is the one in specs, and my brother has also started folding on his laptop.

    Welcome aboard Nokiacrazi! Let us know if we can help you configure the clients. FYI, your 7950 would do considerable work crunching in WGC-Boinc.

    Thank you, I will definitely have a look at crunching soon enough.

    Any ideas how to limit the amount of cores used in folding?

    (you might have to select Advanced or Expert mode) Click configure/slots/smp/edit/smp/ and under CPU's, choose the number of cores that you wish to use.

    Hi all, name's Nibble, just joined the forum. Long time reader, and I think first time joining, I may have joined year ago and forgot. Just joined the F@H team too, or about to actually.
    Anything I should do pertaining specifically to my rig?

    Your system will best benefit from running the standard SMP client. Just set up the V7 client with team 50711, your preferred username, and a passkey :toast:

    I'm just over from the WCG place. Read about Chimp, and wanted to see what my machine could do. Currently running the CPU full time.

    Also, when I game on the machine with F@H running in the background, it doesn't actually seem to do anything. FAHControl shows progress, but there is nothing in log, and after a while, it reverts back to pregame progress. (The lack of progress might just be the games taking all the CPU, but I find that hard to believe, since the CPU to GPU power is heavily on the CPU side.)
