Any help is greatly appreciated.

With 4:27 TPF you should be getting close to 12k PPD. Your unit was downloaded yesterday, so that's probably why you're only getting 6k.

Now, according to the CPU PPD database, 12k seems about right considering you're running 2 GPU clients.

I get 12-16k on my i7 at 3.5 ghz, you should be getting more at 4.0. try running SMP -7 and assign your gpu clients to the last cpu core (core 7).

And make sure you aren't using your computer when you are trying to gauge how many PPD your clients will do. and make sure you dont interrupt the client either.

no
he means setting the flag -7 to force the SMP client to run on 7 threads and then set your 2 GPU clients to run on the 8th thread

which reminds me....I should do this too tonight before changing to the OCNChimpin account

Here's a better idea. Stop folding those low ppd gpus all together. They're leaching off your cpu.

Now that you've qualified for bonus, switch over to bigadv and rake in some serious points. I get right around 33K on my 950 @ 3.9ghz.

If you still want to fold those gpu (although it looks like they're heating your computer room more than making points), throw in the -smp 7 -bigadv flags... that'll still net you a lot of points.

But try with and without the gpus. You might make more points folding the cpu alone.
