ah, you're just running the plain ol CPU client & not the SMP client that will put all 4 cores to use ;)

 

download this client: http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/f...2-SMP-mpich.exe

 

and here is the install guide for it

and here is a great utility to monitor [email protected]

http://code.google.com/p/hfm-net/downloads/list

 

now if you want extra points, you need to configure your client to recieve A3 units

 

Get a passkey from this page: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py

 

You need to provide a valid e-mail address (the passkey will be sent via e-mail), as well as the name that you plan on folding under. The passkey you receive is unique to your donor name, and you must use the same passkey for all of your clients that you wish to receive bonus points from.

 

-Work units that run on the A3 core make use of an early completion bonus system which awards extra points depending on how quickly the unit is submitted to Stanford relative to the download time and the preferred deadline. This means that the faster you complete a unit, the more points you receive for it. It also means that the base points value for these units does not reflect the amount you will actually get credited.

 

-To receive bonus points for early unit completion with A3 work units, you must be using your passkey, and you need to first successfully complete 10 A2 or A3 units and submit them before the preferred deadline with at least an 80% success rate. If you are new to the SMP client, it will take some time before you start getting the bonus, but be patient and once you meet the criteria it will start showing up.

:stupid:

Does this apply to anyone running a quad core?

My CPU is only running @ 25% when I'm folding and would love to put it to better use.

Also, if I want to fold using my GPU as well as my CPU, which client should I use?

Also also...may I have a strand please?

Thank you. :foldon:

Yep, you should run the SMP client as well.

:)

ou need to run two clients, the one above for SMP application and then a GPU client to run your GPU on separately.

 

 

SMP:

SMP CLient

Install guide (I've seen better guides if you look around, I know I used a better one when I had it running awhile back)

 

GPU:

GPU Client (Vista/7)

GPU Client (XP)
