    strange thing is if you clicky on the /file-releases/beta/release/fahclient link it takes you to a new page where you can browse previous versions and heres the kicker theres a 64bit version for win server 2008

    fahclient_7.1.38_Windows-2008-64bit-release.exe

    but nothing for win 7 x64 can I run the server 2k8 version would it work :idea:

    There isn't any advantage to run the 64-bit Client of V7 and there won't be one for Windows. The reason is that the Client doesn't do the real folding, it is done by the FahCores and they are available in 32/64 bit and the Client can download the appropriate version.

    Do the cores actually take up more than 1GB, though?
    I've read threads over at F@H forum (or was it the FAQ?) which said that for every CPU core in SMP folding it's advised to have a certain amount of RAM ready.
    But I've yet to see the SMP core using more than Waterfox (heh) in terms of RAM resource.
    Or is that -bigadv WUs only?

    I have folded bigadv WUs that would take more than 1 GB RAM (IIRC, it showed up as ~1.2GB in Task Manager) while for normal SMP WUs, I never bothered to check them. Currently, a normal SMP WU takes about ~150MB of RAM in Task Manager.

    Interesting.
    Mine is only a four-core, so maybe that's why normal SMP WUs didn't use the RAM so much, and I've never folded -bigadv WUs.
    Currently folding 7611, and the A15 core (on 6802) eats more RAM than the A4 core. =b

    I seem to be getting nothing 8004 WU's the last couple of days instead of SMP2 WU's
    strange as I seemed to be getting through SMP2 WU's before the preferred return times usually by more than a day or so

    I also noticed that for the some SMP projects (like 7611) the bonus points don't seem as much as it used to be, or maybe I just have a flaky memory. =b
    Anyone else notices this?
