    Aye, that way it will add-up your score!

    And too bad you don't live close by, would've had a spare drive for you!

    Started Folding again. Sad to see I dropped 108 places since last time. Currently only on my work PC (i5-3450 and GT520) and Mac Mini (i5-2450m or something) and on medium since they both get used. I have a spare laptop (AMD A6 + 6650m) that I may throw in that may add a few ppd.

    I have another laptop (i5-34~~m + 640m) and my sig desktop (fx4100@4.8 + 7850), but I don't know if I want to a:risk my daily laptop by running it always or b: leave my desktop on 24/7. Anyone know what ppd I could expect on these?

    Thanks! Good to be back. Doubt I'll get my 25th place back haha

    Wanted to help out a bit... so loaded the client and got running. Unfortunately, my workstation GPU is not supported.

    PPD is real low. 689. Is it worth continuing?

    One CPU or two? I haven't run anything on my DP Xeon system, but I had a 2.8GHz C2D that got ~3k PPD, so that's far lower than I feel that it should be. Is this with or without the bonus points?

    @1freedude. I followed the link, checked the "whitelist". My GPU is on the list. So saved the gpu.txt file following the instructions. Restarted the client. No dice. Maybe there is a combination of gpu.txt AND DRIVERS. The log isnt helpful. Perhaps I have the wrong drivers?

    @ion. I've actually pulled one of the CPUs for the moment. (Had PSU troubles, replaced the PSU, but havent reinstalled the second CPU yet). I've upped the folding power to 100%, and get ppd of 1030. Could the ppd depend on the project?
    I'm a noob here. What are bonus points?

    I just checked the Chimp Challenge stats. Looks like we're in last place at the moment. :cry: But I have high hopes. Gathering members and steam for a late charge up the rankings. :toast:

    In keeping with mx500torid's football theme, let me quote the late Bear Bryant, "We may be little, but we're slow." ;)

    It always seems to take about 4 days to get "up to speed". Next year, lets lie and tell everyone it starts 4 days before it actually starts.;)

    Is there a client for x64 systems?

    i took it from the first link in this thread and it only runs @50% Load on both cores with setting it to FULL with all my Core2Duo 2Ghz, Win7 x64, Ati onboard, no gpu slot used just the half cpu is active??

    can we do something for people with core2duos? i know that they are inefficient, thats why they are not used as much but why the heck does FahCore_a4.exe only do about 50% load??

    found this:
    http://fahwiki.net/index.php/Cores

    to which core should i change? the sse2 ones should be right

    On my A6, the cpu client has no problem using all available resources.

    If I have time tonight I'm going to try and get my broken GTX 465 in the game to see if it helps out, the latest tomorrow. Works fine as a physx card but when standing alone the drivers constantly crash when trying a game or hardware accel browsing.

    Wut, according to my client, my main rig is currently putting out 203k PPD O.O

    [​IMG]

    Edit: nvm, seems to be dropping again :p

    TPF estimates on Radeon cards on beta 17 core can be very far off target.

    Yeah so I've noticed, they do wonders for the CPU usage, and also for PPD compared tot non-beta clients though, so I'm happy:)

    PPD on the CPU will basically halve when i run a non-beta client on the GPU.

    Edit: w00t! 14th on todays points so far!

    Edit 2: damn, CPU's getting hotter folding than it ever got during a prime95 run at these clocks. That's some awesome coding! GPU also at 81 degrees. Good thing I clocked things back a bit for this =D
