Right, so as far as the GPU you must fold in the beta client v7 as that gets you the best production or points per day (PPD) out of the GPU. As for the CPU it's a little bit trickier because normally I would tell you to run folding in a virtual machine (VM) of linux inside windows, but I don't know if that would still be the best for the Bulldozer architecture. What I would probably do for right now is just run the beta client v7 for both the GPU and the CPU and then keep track of the PPD for both the CPU and GPU and then in a few days I'll give you instructions on how to install and set up the VM and we can see if that is any better.
So to setup the v7 client you will need the client itself (here
) and then you will want to follow this guide
. You need not bother setting up the bigadv in step 2
because you aren't able to fold those anyway. Be sure to do step 4
as that will be what set's up your GPU to get the WUs that are best for it. After step four you will also want to click edit on the SMP shown here
and then the SMP CPUs section shown here
you want to change the number that is currently a -1 to a 4. That last step will change the CPU to only fold on 4 cores instead of all 6 because folding on your AMD GPU uses a fair amount of CPU resources (about a whole core) and there are some work units (WUs) that will fail no matter what if you have an odd number of cores folding, so 4 cores is what we want for you.
That should be everything but post back here with any questions you have or if you need more help. If you haven't already and are wondering this
is how you sign up to have your folding info displayed under your username. We're having a Foldathon coming up on the 19th of March which is 48 hours where we all fold as much as possible which you should sign up for here
, and I would appreciate if you would put my username as your referrer. Edited by juano - 3/3/12 at 5:45pm
