    Can anyone tell me how to limit the GPU usage of the folding client? I've tried the slider (as suggested), but it doesn't seem to work for me at all.

    When you initially set it up, it will ask you what percentage (default is 100%). If you've passed that, just configure your client again and set it to whatever GPU/CPU load you want.

    It didn't ask me about it in any stage of the install. That's why I'm asking. I'm using a GTS 250, if it matters in any way.

    Console or Systray Client?

    This is what it would like if you're using the console client on config mode:

    You have a shortcut on your desktop somewhere?

    Bah, nevermind you have systray client. You should switch to console as it has lesser load and it doesn't hog up a lot of resources.

    Nope. I add the additional parameters in the client itself, if that's what you're asking.

    Switch to the console client and I will walk you through process. I don't have so much experience with the systray client and I'll just be wasting both of our times.

    Nah. If I can't do it with the systray client I'll be giving up. I don't like non-GUI software. Thanks anyway :)

    i think you failed to click on the right tab in the config menu for your gui client, right click on the F@H icon, goto config, then click on far right top tab, set cpu/gpu usage done.:toast: dont just giv up ya lightw8:D

    also the 100% default wont hurt it and it does give way to your use so if you game it cuts out the folding

    As said above - the slider doesn't work for me, neither does the .cfg in the client folder. 100% doesn't quite cut it, as it raises temps on my card anywhere from 82-90 degrees. And that's at 100% fan speed with no overclock.

    Been so long since I've checked in on this thread. I'm still sitting thousands of miles away at home in India...ten more days to go. Seeing my 24hr average, I'm glad my main rig has been chugging along so far without any problems.

    Looks like warm temps are starting to return! We hit a high of 62°F yesterday and look's like these temps are starting to stay. It's fine for now i just open the window all the way with a fan pushing in and the room stays at a pretty decent temp with the pc folding.

    I've been folding pretty stable for almost a month now. I rarely have time for anything anymore so it works out good leaving the pc fold. I don't think i've played a game in nearly 2 months :eek: Ever since i threw that fan on the NB i haven't had a single hiccup since. Been getting alot of 6900's and 6901's lately too :)

    Anyways, keep up the great work team and let's try and recruit some new hardware/buddies for the chimp challenge coming up!

    3 May :D


    Team I will go ahead a put the -oneunit flag on all my -bigadv folders and convert them to WCG when they're done with their current WU.

    Crunchers next door need some help, plus I wanna see how much muscle I can flex over there:laugh:


    Doing it for the next two weeks and all my GPU's will still fold.

    Weird, for about 12 hours i was stuck trying to turn work units in? FAH Tracker said clients were at 100% and i just stopped them and restarted them and they seem to be working fine again.

    hey everyone, just thought i'd let you guys know i'm back folding! some recent news has motivated me to return to folding, and the fact i actually have a stable system now. currently folding at just shy of 3k ppd on my 9600GT

    I've got an old dell mobo with a pent d on it. i may stick an old 8600gt in there to add to the folding (if the thing still works)
