Yay, more folding :D

Everyone with a newer AMD or Nvidia card should try it out for a bit, especially if your computer is on most the time anyways :)

If you are worried about over-heating, run the card at around 40-50% only. :D

Moon, just leave your CPU off tbh.

You'll notice if you game using your graphics card, there is an fps hit of 30+ %. I usually pause the client when gaming.

Imagine the hit when running the client on your cpu AND your gpu? Not worth it in my opinion unless you are ultra-hardcore about folding.

They are probably working on one.

I don't know of the ETA because I have been working 60-70hr weeks (hooray end of Federal fiscal year) and haven't seen the latest.

I'll put it on my to-do list, or remind me so I can check and post information on it.

Cheers :D

I am going to take my PS3 off of folding duty soon. The fan is making more noise than I am used to. Going to clean her out thoroughly and will think about slapping her back into duty.

Decided to run the F@H client on my new server (see my blog for more info). AMD Athlon X2 4600+ :D

Thought about running it on the other computers on my LAN. Anyone have any issue with it interfering with other things. I know it processes when idle but just curious as to the transparency of the client.

Define interfering?

I have not had an issue with the gpu client other than a noticeably degraded performance gaming while the client runs. I can still run TF2 for example, but the frame-rate is cut down about 15-20 fps :)

On this system I have the SMP and GPU clients set to low priority so I stop them whenever I want to recode video or game. Except the SMP, I let it run when I game. I'd rather do it this way, but anything else I do I let them both run. One thing I've noticed, which might only be related to my hardware, when a video starts from any video software, Windows Media Player/capture software/DVR software/DVD playback, it's slow getting started. Once it starts it's not really glitchy at all. So I've just taken to stopping the GPU client when starting any kind of video for this reason.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
