Hiigaran since I'll probably be using FAH more often, and the actual Neoseeker FAH team is dead, would I be able to join Brony@Home?

Also, how do I switch from the CPU only client, to use both GPU and CPU? I want to see what my temp my GPU hits under load aswell.

uhh, to be honest, im not too sure unless i have the program in front of me. first off, you need the v7 client, not the v6 client. secondly, you need to switch to expert mode. whether it is found under preferences or configuration is what i dont remember.

team number is 212997 btw

Well I've got the team setup done anyway...

I can add the GPU on a folding slot, but it seems to put it on a different work queue. Not sure if its meant to do that, I would've just assumed they'd both process the same thing.

The GPU is being worked though.

if you are wondering if both the cpu and gpu work on the same work unit, i dont think thats how it works, so the cpu will work on one unit, while the gpu works on another. if you have multiple gpus, then they would each work on one unit.

I noticed that too. The gpu and CPU work in different folds. I don't understand how to adjust the gpu part so I left it at default. But my gpu runs that thang on 80-90% plus. My temps are at 57c all times.

Being that I have a dual core, if I had a quad would the score jump up faster? My PC stays on at all times. Unless its shut down by my anti virus or my daughter.

I would expect so since it has more cores to run on, it should fold faster... assuming you assign all four cores to the program.

yeah. the calculations that are done by FAH are the kind that would benefit from more cores, or more threads (for those with hyperthreading).

regarding the GPU adjustment, you cant change it. while the CPU does not affect performance, because it has processor scheduling (setting priority to processes), and the ability to change the maximum processor usage, the GPU is just a one shot thing. it cannot differentiate between tasks, nor can maximum usage be specified. thats why you need to turn off FAH to run games. with it using the GPU in the background, 50% of usage will go to FAH, and 50% will go to the game, which means that if you dont have a powerful card, you will suffer a performance loss that would be more than noticeable.

When do the stats usually update? I've been folding for the past three and half hours, yet my userpage is showing nothing.

Getting some inconsistent temperature readings aswell. It was at 44°c yesterday under full load, yet now it's 38°c under full load yet the ambient temperature of the room is higher... not that I'm complaining, but it's not helpful when it changes wildly.

oh it will take some time. firstly, the update interval is 3 hours, and secondly, i think there is a small delay for newer folders. some dude who runs an online radio didnt have his stats appear for about a day.

what username do you have? i can keep an eye out for it for you.
