Do you have a passkey set up and have run 10 smp WUs on that key to receive the bonus points?


Most likely though that is going to be the points you are going to get from that. I dont know the performance of that processor but for my c2d thats about 3 years old the best i can get from it is 2K ppd.

I would definately go for the small WU if you dont run it 24/7 also the few background processes running the better as you can devote more to folding

Your better off using your GPU.

agreed. I have a 440gt in my server where the C2D is. I actually get almost the same points by just running the GPU as opposed to the GPU and the CPU. Plus the power draw is not worth it for the couple hundred extra points a day

I am not sure what answer you are looking for but in my google searches for the PPD for that CPU that max is about 6K. If you feel that you should be getting higher points check to see if anything else is eating the CPU cycles. Since you are not folding with a GPU you should see about 97%+ average usage. Besides that not much you can do. Its not that old of a CPU but you wont see huge points unless you upgrade your CPU every year or so
