Would somebody please PM me a passkey? I'll set it up on my Windows 8 90-day Trial rig. It's doing nothing but sitting on a shelf at the moment anyway, and yet it should be good for all of October!
Question 1: Can I set up clients for both CPU and GPU simultaneously?
Question 2: I'm interested to see how much it warms up the home office but I also want to be sure I don't cause overheating problems if I'm running Folding in my home office while I'm at work or sleeping. Is it possible to set up a governor of some sort?
Question 3: Is there an FAQ that can answer newbie technical issues, such as questions 1 and 2 above? I'll self-educate as needed.
I'm using a Q6600 and an Asus P5KC motherboard. Win 8 64 bit and 8 GB RAM. I have a Radeon 53xx (I think). The whole rig is almost 7 years old except for the graphic card, which I think is about 3 or 4 years old.

The former will bring 4092 credits and the latter will add 1800 points. Compared to prior work units on this system, 1.3 DAYS (it started out six hours ago at 1.5 days) seems like a very long run for only 4K points.

just brew it! wrote: Are you running with the passkey (to get the SMP early turn-in bonus)? If so, running two SMP units on the same system is likely to be counter-productive. On a reasonably fast machine, the bonuses can account for the bulk of the points awarded (provided the WUs are turned around quickly).
BIF wrote:Status update please. Who's still folding for Frankie?
My little "folding garden" (it's way too small to call it a "farm") has been going since Sunday afternoon. I estimate that I've put up probably 50,000 points since I started folding last week, but won't know for sure without analyzing my log files.
I'm probably going to hit "finish" soon and let both machines finish up their current work units and take a break for a few days.
It seems to me that both of my machines suddenly are working longer for fewer points. Last week I was bringing in 21,000 points per day but now that has fallen to 17,000 or so. Both machines are working a 2.5 days (24-ish hours more) on their respective SMP workunits, and for fewer points than last week. GPU work units seem to also take slightly longer but are returning roughly the same number of points as before.
