Question about team competitions and CPU core usage

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I couldn't find a thread to ask questions about Team Competitions, but have to ask...

Sadly, the heat output of my graphics card folding 24/7 was too much for the living room once outside temps hit about -1C regularly, however I'm working on seeing how just the CPU will affect things (probably nowhere near as much). So I'm curious about this:

With the whole 20/7 rule, does one use up part of the 4 hours allowed per day if one is still folding, but drops the CPU down to 6 threads (instead of the usual 8) while playing games, or does this not use up the time?

I was under the impression that mandate can be fudged. Personally I would count smp -6 time towards the 20/7 rule. wu turned in are wu turned in. There are some that used to game for 12 hours, and would turn off their folding for that time, but they would only do that once a week. As long as you return the smp - 8 or keep folding most teams will be happy.


Personally I run a 780 and it only averages about 130K ppd on a good day, that is no were near the top end of 160K ppd the others 780's are getting. They still keep me around.

Hmmm... Good to know there's some flex with it ^_^ Had to ask because once I've kept an eye on the living room ambient temps for a few days I'll look into applying to the TCs.
