Edit: Oh wait, scratch that. Here's SMP Beta client 6.23: http://www.stanford.edu/~kasson/folding ... 32-x86.exe
Not sure what is changed besides a new expiration date, though.

Thanks for the concern Fox
I'm testing out my system stability at the moment, once the client is up to speed I'll move it over for UGN to use

Flying Fox wrote:Sounds odd. 50% use in Task Manager means only one core is used (I'm assuming we are talking about the E4400 in your sig). Are you running with the -smp switch?

Do I have to wait for the currently running work unit to finish before I input that switch line?
Flying Fox wrote:If you don't want to trash it, relaunch it with -oneunit so that it quits after finish thing. Then you can use a different command line. The 6.23 beta -configonly mode gives you the ability to input "default" parameters on the command line so you can put -smp there. I do the same and leave -oneunit for myself from time to time when I know I won't be folding in the following day or so.
What's the ppd just folding the GPU client alone?
ReAp3r-G wrote:It should be ok. Idle is the lowest you can set. You can confirm by looking at Task Manager. Right click on the EXE themselves, move to Set Priority and you will see what the current priority the process is being run at.Oh and another thing, I've already set my priority in the GPU client to slightly higher...should I change the core priority in the SMP client as well? It's set at the default value of [idle]...that should be OK right?

Very very odd...but one good thing is that the system appears to be stable...hasn't crashed since the client got started on the WU it grabbed at 15:06 GMT
