    I apologize if you were referring to "Get & Set Affinty Changer", which is a great program for assigning cores and priorities. I am referring to "F@H Affinity Changer" which runs as a service and has no settings or core assignment. F@H A/C will override other affinity changers and should be used on SMP only machines due to the fact that is uses all cores to scavenge unused cycles. Sorry for the confusion.;)

    Ok, where are you located if you know of the nefarious "FPL"? We should get together for some "Lan Folding"...:laugh:

    On another note, sometimes when the planets are in the correct alignment we have the following phenomenon take place. Behold 16 instances of WU 50XX, all folding on Fahcore11 v1.15:) I have to admit, I did dump a few 57xx WU's to get these. I wish it would last...:cry: Oh well, let me get back to my moment of Zen [​IMG]

    Ah, Miami. You either love it or hate it. I am in Port St. Lucie(near the Nuclear Power Plant :laugh:)

    PM me on the setting up the client.

    That is somewhat crappy to dump projects to get more points.



    I just started my quad the other day and the first units are done now. SMP + GPU folding.

    Thanks for jumping back in the fold. I can understand your feelings concerning my dumping of 3 work units. I rarely do this, except when deleting a client/work. I'm not gonna go into it, but I do want to say I reserve the right to do what I feel is right for my farm. Done!

    Added two more. A few more to go with the SMP, and I can add a couple on with SMP plus the GPU client.

    Sent 2 pms Buck, sorry hit the send button or something before I finished... Yeah, I'm getting tired of my 2nd card eueing on any 57xx job. At least if it's by itself, it'll fold. Congrats on 4 mil Buck! I keep reflushing jobs on my 2nd card, but it keeps sending new 57xx jobs at me, they won't stop! Some of the 57 jobs make my gtx280 run at 80c @ 100% fan....

    Darn, what's with all the 384 pointers, my 280 gets 8k ppd on them, but it's killing my points! Guess it'll take a day or 2 more to get top 20. On the plus side, I'm officially in the 200k+ point club! Yaaaay! (check my fah stats, more upto date). Still don't think I should of passed so many ppl so fast..... Fold On!

    Have you been using the newest 6.23 client? That seems very very low for the card you have. Honestly, the 9600gt would beat that, but I still think somethings wrong. Don't those 4850s oc fairly well? Wish I knew more about ati cards. Isn't there a 8.12 driver out now? Just some ideas...

    Actually, leave your memory at stock, memory speed really doesn't help with this, shader speed is the most productive. If you leave your mem at stock, you might even be able to get a bit more out of your shader That ppd is starting to get close I think at oced speeds. Are you using 8.12? Sorry, realllly wish I knew more about atis.. still think you could get more.

    Ok yes, again forgive my ignorance, forgot ati ties core to shader, can you set fan speed on that? I'd set a higher fan speed if you can, and watch gpu temps. Don't burn that baby out! Not likely of course due to shutdown parms, but whatever it's stable at max in atitools, back it down a few for folding. I slightly baby my cards on oces, because they run most of the day.

    Wow, very nice, no temp issues there! Well, even at 3200ppd, it should do much better than 17k in 8 days now! And soon they will release a core that can properly use all shaders on that card, and you will get much better ppd.

    Yea, all these big atom WU's are killing my little ol 8800GS's. Maybe I should switch my farm to GTX260's. Now how much would 18 of them cost:rolleyes:???
