    Quick question. I am using my GPU for folding only right now (console based app.). Is my daily average a bit low for say 20 hours a day of folding?

    It depends on which WU's that you have folded. You average does not seem abnormally low.

    should I be running a multi-core client and a GPU client at 100% simultaneously on one system? Or should I back the core client down to either 2 single units (or just take the multicore to 50%) to prevent a slowdown on my system?

    Listed in the Fold@Home starter guild thingy.

    The GPU needs some CPU cycles at times to upload and download WU's, but it will only need to use 1 core. If you can micro manager, set 100% for all cores but 1 and set it at say 50 to 80% en be sure it can handle the download/upload request. If not, start the Multi-core client and adjust the affinity to to 1 less core. Then you can still use the computer for web browsing and such and cover this base as well.

    If it only needs it for a very short time I'll just leave it how it is so I don't break anything lol. I just thought that it might continually need the cpu to retrieve the downloaded WU like it would if it were just gaming and needed things from the cpu to turn into pretty pictures. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't permanently bottlenecking everything I guess.

    Thanks :)

    The GPU always needs CPU cycles whenever it is running. It's best to run the GPU's on a low priority and the CPU on an idle priority. These setting will maximize your ppd production.

    How can I get back into the settings to change that after the initial set-up? What's the difference between low and idle priorities too?

    Or should I just set the cpu client itself to run at 60-70%?

    Excellent!
    I may be getting my 8800GT back from the guy I sold it to (trade him the HD5670 for the 8800GT + cash), in which case I should be able to do ~12k PPD for a week or so. Depending if I have a new cooler by then, I'll clock up the X4 955 as high as I can, and maybe see about getting my friend with a 9600GT to fold for us as well :cool:

    Alright this thread almost died because the OP had to leave on a short notice. Anyways I'm resurrecting it; so who else is interested in doing this? If you've signed up originally confirm it by posting YES. If we get enough participants I will then submit our application and get the credentials started and pass it on out (username, password, team #, passkey...etc...)
