    that sounds better. Download the CPU client and run it too along with the GPU client

    LOL, you have no idea how true that is. I have to pay special attention to power draw when I bring additional rigs online. I have tripped a few breaker in the last couple of weeks. Saturday I was picking up a couple of 12/3 extension cords to run from the den to my folding room. I will need the extra juice when I bring another quad rig online in December.

    Make sure to separate the clients on different CPU cores.

    LOL!! I will arrange the cable!

    The internet providers options I have here in Toronto are terrible! You have to try picking the less bad one.

    I will change my ISP during this week. My patience is gone. The last 7 days my internet is up and down all the time. :mad:

    Just a FYI for Fahmon users on a network. I have 5 rigs networked with Fahmon and it has become a resource hog. I have 18 clients and it is hurting my PPD on my primary rig. I have to close it when done viewing and start it back up when needed. Thinking about bringing in the Laptop for monitoring purposes only. Keep an eye out for dropping PPD when Fahmon is open.

    I need your opinion

    Now that I have got my folding rigs stabilized, I am taking a look at my other hardware. I always wanted and finally got an HTPC 6 months ago. It's a nice rig(CoolermasterGigabyte 780G/Phenom x3 8650/HD3200 IGP)and was to be my only computer(yeah, haha). Then along came Folding @ Home and all hell broke loose. 4 rigs later, things are finally settling down. I had 2 8800GS's folding in the HTPC for 4 months. Now my Quad GPU folding rigs are putting out 75K ppd and I have my HTPC back to watch Blu-Rays on, so all is well. But, there is only one problem. I have these 2 empty PCI-E slots in the HTPC, so you know what I'm thinking. I could throw 2-9600GSO's/ Antec PSU for $180.00 total and add 10k ppd for TPU Or I could just leave it as is and enjoy Blu-rays anytime without shutting down folding cards just to watch a movie. So, I ask you, what should I do with this wonderful HTPC I have?

    1 480 point WU takes around 2 hours right? so shutting down f@h on one card to watch a movie won't even make a dent with your folding farm! I say get it folding if you can :D

    I just wish i could afford another card! My main rig is putting out around 8k ppd if i leave it on 24/7, pitiful in comparison to what you're doing!

    HAHA, I new you would say that. It is enticing. BTW, everyone helps on this folding team. If it were not for your 8k PPD Infrared, we would not eclipse the 200K average that we have. Thanks for folding with us & keep up the good work.

    The 8800GTS 320mb has 112 shaders and will overclock higher than the GSO. Figure for 5400-5600 ppd with overclock.

    Well, right now you are 47th on the list of all Folders for 24hr Avg. PPD..... another 10k PPD would currently move you to 36th. Just figured I'd give you the numbers.

    It seems that you guys are a bit biased. Maybe I should have posted this on a HTPC forum...:laugh: I will prob get the cards and throw another 10k into the fold. Someone want to tell my kids that their Xmas presents are in my computer and say "EVGA" on them.:D

    P.S. My gameplan is to be @ 100K PPD average by New Years!:rockout:

    I've got my brother's 9600GT on loan for a couple of days or so, and decided to give dual GPU folding a go.

    My 8800GTS is in the 4x PCIe slot, running almost at it's usual full speed and the 9600GT is in the primary 16x PCIe slot because it has a smaller cooler. The 9600GT was getting approx 4600ppd in my little brother's PC. I've reinstalled the drivers and gpu clients. Both the gpu clients are set to "slightly higher" priority, so they have priority over the CPU SMP client.

    I can't figure out why it's dropped 1000ppd, any ideas?

    EDIT: I'd also injected the 1.15 fahcore 11 into the folders. Both are working.
