Very small amount of help I'm adding to you, that's for sure. It was great when those 310-point Project 3906 WU's were coming in consecutively when I brought the machine up, because it was delivering well above 400 PPD with them. But other WU's slowed it down noticeably (292 points taking near 30 hours, as opposed to 310 taking under 17). And then there's the problem of it being on a wireless connection which is only active when logged in, which slows progress down a bit. I usually time it well enough that most of the folding happens while logged out (Windows®, eating excess cycles for our customers since 1986 or thereabouts™
As for your change in your Q6600, when I was checking your stats on EOC
, I noticed you getting some WU's that I never get on either of my dual-cores, so maybe they're restricting them to quad-cores... which means you won't get 'em now, though your points will probably increase fairly noticeably.
You seem to have more than your share of memory problems. I use better brands (Crucial, Mushkin, and Corsair though I'm less enamored of the last of those after reading that they substituted cheaper, less OC-able RAM chips in their DDR2-800) and never have problems as far as I know, although maybe OC-ing would go better with something else... I don't go as far as some do with that sort of thing.
With respect to the kill cores link, IIRC it asked for another confirmation click just like the reboot link does, so I'd think that should be enough. Me, submit a feature request? Then I'd have to learn how to work Sourceforge stuff, or something. I think I do have an account with them, hmm. It's not that big of a deal, since I can reboot and it often re-runs the last N minutes of the frame and continues on to submit it successfully (on ~12 minute frame WU's with 10 minute backups, it's often worth doing).
