Folding clogs DOWNLOAD speeds

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm downloading a steam game at 500KBps with folding paused. When I resume folding the download speeds dips all the way to 15KBps and stays there until I pause folding again. It's also evident in speedtest.net, my speeds with folding paused are much higher then when it's working. I'm in the middle of a WU, not downloading or uploading. What's up with folding??

I thought folding doesn't use internet when crunching, only downloading the WU and uploading it.

It's not steam. It's evident when I'm just browsing the web. Yahoo takes at least 10 seconds longer when the machine is folding vs when it's paused or off.

This problem is prevalent when your computer is loading something, or data is being transferred or created on different parts of the hard disk, you will notice this when you log onto windows, open IE, or firefox, it loads but those web pages take ages, so do many other programs, people may think i'm wrong but i'm sure i'm not. more data being transferred/created slower it becomes, although i dunno how f@h could be generating 140MB/s of data ^_^.

is the hitachi your main drive, or the vertex?.

this phenomenon has happened with one of my friends, he had 6 gb free, was rendering videos, he had a 30Mb connection (megabit) and only saw 1 megabit (100 KB/s download).

check how much space you have on your drives, if it dips below 90% (aka 12 gigs, then free stuff up)

Is your CPU using 100% when the client is open?

The hitachi is my main drive, and I'm only using 50 gigs of that. I use the gpu client, my cpu is around 1-4% when folding is running.

yeah, umm turn off hardware acceleration in your browser, and try using your SSD as the boot drive and try it then.

Just wondering is steam open when you are browsing the internet? Whenever I have it downloading something my internet sucks.
