Check out the SMP guide I wrote. Just add the -bigadv flag where you have the -smp flag ;)

Here is a short and simple -bigadv tutorial. Basically it's the same as the SMP tutorial except a few added steps. Here is the LINK for the SMP tutorial straight from the F@H page.

Additional Steps:

1. Passkey is needed (see tutorial on how to obtain)

2. When you configure your client make sure you:

a. Select "big" as your acceptable size of work assignment

b. Do not enable the -advmethods flag

3. Place the -bigadv flag on client shortcut.

Follow steps 2 and 3 as seen here:



Note: You need to have least 8 CPU cores in order to qualify and receive -bigadv work units (WU). Intel i7 9XX and 8XX processors qualify because of their 8 total threads. Minimum OC to 3.6 Ghz to qualify for the early completion bonus. I highly recommend that your OC be stable because F@H will stress your rig

If you need further assistance PM myself or BUCK_NASTY;)

Is there a guide for setting up HFM? If there is, I can't find it.

Hello,

I was wondering if you please can update the post?
Almost all the threads referred to, you will only find tutorials for Win XP/Vista and some Win7.
Being almost 7 years now, I guess it would need an update; specially for Windows 10 and 8/8.1 users.

Thank you a lot! :)

OK guy's, who can help with Win 8/10? I'm still holding out on Win 7 on all my rigs. Don't know if the Fahclient is any different with the newer versions of Windoz.

It's exactly the same on 10 and 8 and out of the 2 I would go w/ 10 as it has been producing better numbers for me, very close to my Linux based numbers too

Could you provide me some proof with those numbers please ?
Win7 vs linux would be very nice !
That's so hard, takes so much time, and is just plain difficult to quantify. Also, they keep changing F@H so what works best today may not tomorrow. Just go with what you're comfortable with.

Not real but I only have 10 and Ubuntu so I can show those differences. Ubuntu wins too
I'm mainly running win10 due to business reasons right now till I can convert fully and get apps to work in wine/play on Linux
