Does this make sense?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ive been working on a WU for 26 hours now and only 30 steps out of a total 100 are completed. btw my c2d is overclocked to 2.8ghz.

It's probably just a tough WU. Either that or unstable(even though you may think it's stable) overclocks can cause worse performance.

Some workunits are very complex. However an Unstable overclock can cause problems with folding also !

What version of the program are you using, and what WU is it working on?

The WU was 850 kb in size

I think the version I'm using is 504.

If you're using 5.04, that's the console version. While that only works a single core, I would say that it's not crunching as fast as it should. My Dothan can do that same WU in under 2 days, while you're on about a 3.5 day pace (your Conroe should spank my Dothan).

Once that WU is complete, I would suggest that you set up one of the SMP clients. That will make much more efficient use of your system. You can either run the Windows SMP client (fairly easy set up, very fast version) or the Linux SMP client through VMWare (longer set up than WinSMP but even faster).

I was considering folding using SMP but it seemed liked a long setup process to setup vmware. Where can I get the windows SMP client?

All of the folding programs are available at here. Be sure to read the WinSMP directions before installing. There's not much to them, but there are one or two things that will really hold you up if you miss them.
