    Has anyone managed to get the SMP client to work reliably as a service? Everytime I try it it just gets stuck at the "working..." part and never actually goes onto the "Completed 0 out of 500000 Steps" part.

    I thought I read that you need to put something in the services properties to get it to work, but that might have been for something else.

    If you have a dualcore install the SMP client,it's for dualcores.

    Also gives better points per WU,I am averaging 1500 points per WU. ;)

    I've been leaving it going while I play games and haven't noticed a single slowdown, the processor priority for F@H is so low that virtually everything take priority over it so when you run games the game gets the CPU power, not F@H.

    Am now folding again, with 2 normal clients, and a third on the way. Maybe even a fourth if I decide to give my sister my old comp. And a fifth if I can get a IDE HDD.

    What is the problem with the X2?

    My guess would be 15-20.

    I haven't figured out why the X2 won't do SMP yet. I will have more time tonight to look and think, I have been busy the last few weeks and have had little time to play. :shadedshu 67 hours this week at work so far. Plus half a day tomorrow.

    I'm about to start SMP on my system now. I'm hoping the network bug won't kick in, I lost days of Folding from it before.

    Yep, my X2 is folding fine, with four core apps running, each using around 25% CPU.

    I'm experimenting running 8 single core clients on my X2, because mine failed to fold correctly too. I'll give you an average WU time when my monitoring program figures it out.

    Task manager detects each core is using around 13% CPU usage.

    Why not run just two,one for each core.It would finish each WU quicker.

    Why did the X2 not fold correctly,I will be getting mine back soon and hope to fold with it to.

    I dunno, it used to run fine on mine/ It runs to 9% now then Error 63's continously, then won't do anything.

    And the reason I want to run 8 is because it's an ezxperiment and it'll get more WU's done.
