    Since you don't mind the Beta Client, how about you try the V7 Beta Client (Thread)?

    I stopped folding@home when I got my first bill after running 3 machines 24/7. My bill was freaking outrageous! Then again I've been behind. I hate spending extra money though. I hope no one hates me for it... :/

    If you want to contribute, just run a single instance of the Classic Client which uses only 1 CPU. Although your PPD will be less, you're still contributing scientifically valuable information. You can also be a seasonal folder who only folds in the winter to generate heat :)

    Anyone else in here using ATI gpu's find they got a nice little boost in PPD when using the 11.7 preview drivers

    ok, might be a noob question, searched around couldn't find right info.
    I am folding on the version 7 beta client, GPU and SMP.
    I know that u can't get bonus points untill i finished 10 smp WU's.
    But atm since i am folding on smp and gpu, would i be better of disabling gpu folding now till i got 10 smp units done? or will i start getting the bonus points after the 10 th SMP wu?

    weird question, i know, but i already folded about 17 wu's, so i have no clue wether they are gpu or smp...

    Ty for a reply :)

    ty for the info m8, it doesn't specify how many smp folds i've done, but indeed a day or 3 (since it doesn't run 24/7) and also the smp takes alot longer, so i figure a 1 to 4 ratio smp/gpu.

    But i think i don't do that bad atm, already hit 20k points, woehoe :)

    Just upgraded my 'main' rig to an i5-2500K @4.3GHz (no, I don't plan to OC it higher; don't tempt me =b) and a 560Ti @880MHz.
    Since I'm going out of town and won't be able to use it for about a month then why not. =b
    Currently using both SMP and GPU3 clients.
    Here's hoping it won't blow up while I'm away; knock on wood.

    Just log the temperatures so you can see if its getting a little toasty when you get back :D

    Whelp, seems like I can't let the new system running unattended.
    No, it's nothing technical, it's just one of those problems when you share the electricity bill with your spouse. =b

    Anyway, I plan on continuing with my laptop which details are to the left (or below, depending on your forum template).
    Should I go with normal or small WUs?
    I plan to use both SMP and GPU2; the 5650 is being OC'ed to 550MHz.


    [edit]
    lol, nvm.
    Seems like I'll just use the normal client.
    Using GPU2 the laptop fan is wailing like a siren, even on 450MHz. xD
    And I think I'm just going to use the normal client, since I just remembered SMP WUs are mostly big ones.

    i would run just the classic client on the laptop, they normal don't like being run near 100%
    shame not to being able to use the desktop though

    Yeah, and I was getting good PPD too; around half a day run and it's 16k+. =/

    Since this laptop is really just a dual core with HT, I only run 2 instances.
    Though I wonder if there's any benefit in also utilizing the remaining virtual cores?

    This Project blurs the lines between UNI and SMP WUs. It can run on a single CPU or on multiple CPUs depending on the Clients configuration.

    well they're running through pretty quick in comparison to an standard SMP WU but the points for these is rather crap
    8001 (23, 17, 22)
    base credit: 88.59
    estimated credit: 704.77
    estimated PPD: 4170.46
    fah core: 0xa4
    TPF: 2 mins 25 secs

    and I see EOC site is still down must have been a bigger job than he realised :bang:
