    Awesome, thanks for joining! It looks like from you screenshot that you don't have your processor set to 100% usage. Change the boinc manager to advanced view. Then click on the advanced drop down menu, select preferences, and set your cpu to 100%. Default is at 60%. Here is how it looks.

    NO ONE is showing up in my "threat list"......I've got a few of you in my "opportunity" list (Read as, my roadkill list....) Come on, take me out, I dare you.... Easy pickings... One measly old quad, clocked by some weird old dufuss....

    Let the trash talking begin!! :laugh::slap::nutkick::roll::rockout:

    Sincere Regards,
    Bob

    Well a bit of friendly competition sounds good ;)

    123bob = 10,421
    oily_17 = 7,010

    I just need to hook myself up with a PSU, should have one by the middle of next week, and then I am coming after you :nutkick: :laugh:

    That gives the "weird old dufuss" 3,000 points of a lead as of today and should be more by next week.
    Will see how quick I can reign you in when I get my next machine on this :toast:

    I'm coming for you, bob. Just wait until I get a grip on optimized settings, and I'll have a second Quad crunching rig set up within the next week.

    ok guys I had some down time for both rigs today. They were supposed to be working appt. by appt. today and cutting the power momentarily, so I left the rigs off. But now they are both back up and running.
