I downloaded fahmon but it wont tell me my smp stuff. Every time smp is entered any other way than through command line it goes to an old unit that was never finished because i switched to using the -smp flag so fahmon cant find my actual current log.

I am thinking of trying this FAH thing out with the 6950 but I am hearing that ATI sucks for folding. I've also read that it's gotten better, but is it still worth it? I wouldn't mind folding while I was away during the day.

I have been trying to get my AMD 7950 to work but it wont let me. Keeps saying "At present your GPU is not supported and you need a current driver. You may wish to consider running our standard client, which you can download at folding.stanford.edu" Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get around this? I have spent hours trying to figure it our on my own but I feel it is a waste of time.

One other thing I noticed today. I thought it was running to slow so I started watching the viewer and it would run 60 iter / sec for about 30 seconds and thin it would slow down to 1 iter / sec unless I clicked on it. I don't have anything running on my computer at the moment and I turned off sleep and hibernate along time ago so I don't what could be causing this. Did I set it up wrong?

 

I selected for Core Priority: Lowest Possible.

Set CPU usage percent at 100 even though my computer says its only using about 30%

I checked Do NOT lock cores to specific CPU

 

Please let me know what you think. Thanks.
