    HI guys! New here! :)

    I have been using BOINC to run MilkyWay@Home. Since MW@Home spends most of its time using my GPU with my CPU being not implemented very much I thought it could be put to work on WCG curing Childhood cancer. I have been looking in the boinc manager trying to figure out how to get the WCG to leave my GPU alone and focus on my CPU's idle cycles.

    Can anyone give me some pointers on how to accomplish this?

    The BOINC wiki says:

    but I cant find these options on my accounts page at the projects web site :(

    ok found a device profile page but its still not clear to me how to get what I want setup setup. No clear option to tell the project to only use the CPU.

    WCG doesn't use the GPU at all. You're probably running MW@H and WCG at the same time.

    Yes I am. So that's cool then. Thats what I want. MW@Home to use the GPU and WCG to use CPU. So if its defaulting that way then great. :)
