2 hopefully simple folding questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
1. I am in the process of setting up Dual Core Folding. It asked me how much of my processor I want to use? I do want to use 100%. Now Seeing that I have 2 Cores. Should I set both to 50% or should I set both to 100%?

2. GPU Folding how exactly does it work. Could it hurt my GPU? and should it increase my work units with my 8800? Is it safe?

Set both cores to 100% not 50. And I dont know much about GPU folding.

Thanks. What about memory I gave both of them 1800MB is that OK? or should I give both 900MB? Or does it matter at all?

No, it could not hurt your processor. That being said the G80 is not currently supported by the GPU folding client, and as such it is not really anything you need to worry about. As for the memory, assuming you have 2 gigs put them each at 1024 MB, its not as though they could possibly use a gig a piece, but its best to let them use as much memory as they need.

I have set mine to many different mb's but have not noticed any difference. Seems they all fold the same.

OK one very last question. Does this look the way it is supposed to look? It has not updated in the last 10 minutes.

Looks fine, both cores are doing different WU's, just give them some time now
