    I thought we were putting out well over a million...

    I fired up the rigs I had left idle over the holiday so that should be no real problem.

    BTW BOINC points are 7 times the WCG points. We are averaging like 1.5 million BOINC per day...

    Yeah I know. W1z is asking for a WCG average. From the chart I'm looking at, we are very close. My i7 rig is back up as of this morning too, so I'll have 3 rigs running consistently. I'm a bit worried about my 5000+BE though. She's getting a bit too warm. I need a better cooler for it.

    Take one of your other profiles on the WCG page, set processor usage to something less than 100%. Assign that rig to the new profile. Hit the update button on the BOINC client on that rig. CPU in perf mgr should be showing something less than 100% use. Monitor temps and adjust CPU useage as needed. .....then get some better cooling!:D

    Thanks for the welcom.

    I don't suppose anyone can help me setting it up? I'm running F@H in parallel (GPU only) but even when i selct 50% max cpu usage (thru advanced options) y folding points are halved (from 4000 to 2338)

    Yup, I already set the CPU usage to 60%, and temps are STILL high. That's my concern. I've got a better cooler on the way.

    i hate how WCG's stats are far different than free-dc's.

    WCG says we have 52 members active

    free-dc says 32

    Yeah, that is confusing. My question is which stats (DC or WCG) are more relavent in terms of points??:confused:

    I have not seen that problem. I am using the 182.08 drivers and latest console client. Are you uising the console client?

    Then again I am using Vista 64...it could be that a 32 bit OS is causing the drop under full tasking.

    Have you tried setting your client up to run at slightly above normal in the -cfg menu? I've also cured some odd stuff by setting the affinity for the FAH client in the Task Manager

    DC Stats only shows those who have validated points. The WCG page shows everyone. This includes folks who started, set up an account, then abandoned it for whatever reason. It also includes brand new folks who have not validated points yet. They will show up at DC when they have a validated WU. A day or so usually.

    EDIT: As to relavance to points, both sites show the same thing at least a couple times a day. DC updates more often though and it can be confusing to see DC with an update while WCG is only doing it twice a day. For the purpose of the sub-forum challenge, I think we should be using the WCG page since that is "straight from the horse's mouth". (Wherever that saying came from...:rolleyes:)

    Welcome to the new folks!! Thanks and crunch hard everyone. We need to break the 1M mark....:toast:

    A million a day is a great goal. Only the top 20 or so teams in the dailies make that much but I know if TPU pulls together, that and more can be done.
