    One account, many "slots" on many systems for F@H.
    One account, many "devices" for WCG.

    Hi Ladies and Gents,
    Just started folding again after a move to the US from the UK. Finally built a machine and looking forward to contributing.

    I am yes. I folded for a few other people a while ago and I haven't had a PC for a while after the move. But I'm here now with a EVGA GTX780 Super Clocked and a small core i5 4670K.

    Link is what I previously done with Folding on a much less powerful setup.

    Thank you. I got a new passkey and yeah electricity is way...way cheaper over here. I left my PC running last night while in work. Still within the first 10 WU and I'm 19th in the team for production. lol.

    Seems I should easily beat my old score.
    Thanks again for the warm welcome.

    Welcome! Did the installer not pick up your GPU's? CPU work isn't worth it - we recommend WCG for the CPU.

    Let's try adding it manually. Launch advanced control, select configure - slots then add. Make sure to select the little bullet next to gpu. Then add again. Then OK. Let's see what the client does.

    I didn't have to do anything special for my 750ti's. Maybe try manually inputing a slot.

    I remove the cpu and cpu for boinc and use gpu for folding :clap:

    Made a mistake in my previous post. Corrected.

    You need to give Folding reserve a CPU thread for the Folding client.

    I'm tired and not communicating clearly. I corrected my LAST post, hopefully that's clearer. GPU Folding puts a load on the CPU, as you've found out.. Therefore, a thread (or more according to the CPU) has to be reserved from the CPU if something like WCG is running on the CPU. If the Folding client does not have access to a CPU thread, the Folding PPD will suffer.
