I fold on an E6750, and I finish about 1.5 WUs every day, for a point average of ~2,200 - ~2,400 ppd. Since you have an E8400, I assumed you use the SMP client. However, I just took a look at your folding performance, and you seem to have submitted 3WUs @ 15 points each, all around the same time. This leads me to believe you never completed a WU, but that you have instable settings and the FAH client craps out, submitting an incomplete WU.

Check your overclock settings, and make sure it's 100% stable (at least 8 hours Orthos). The folding client is pretty sensitive to an unstable overclock.
takes for looking at my stats lol 90% lost...
im using the visual Folding@home
my computer passed the stability test so i dont know whats going on.

whats the best way to fix this?

i'll try to raise the voltage a little more to see if that'll help.

just bumped my voltage to 1.184 from 1.136
it was stable for more then 6 hours at 1.136 so 1.184 should really help.

they should make this folding thing in a way that people can use it as a benchmark test.
lol just imagine. "my computer saves more lives then yours"

With your set up, the graphical client is the worst possible option (ok, it looks pretty, but that's all). You have a nice dual core CPU, and thus SMP folding is an option for you.

Get this SMP client: http://www.stanford.edu/~kasson/fold...P%20Client.EXE

Download it, and follow these instructions to get it up and running:

Unpack files. Run the self-extracting installer to unpack the SMP client files.
Client installation. Run install.bat from within the SMP install directory to complete the installation. This will install MPI services that the client needs. If you have Windows Firewall enabled, you may get a pop-up window asking if you should give access to the smpd and mpiexec programs. Grant access. If you use an alternate firewall product, you will likely have to make a similar exception for smpd.
NOTE The username and password you provide for mpiexec should be your Windows login that you will run the client under. This is used for authentication on your local machine. It is cached in encrypted form in your Registry and is not transmitted to FAH servers. And if you change your password, you will need to run install.bat again. It is normal that nothing shows when you type your account password. This is normal.

At the end of the install process, you should see two lines of output:

If you see this twice, MPI is working
If you see this twice, MPI is working
If you do not see these lines, do not start the client. MPI is not successfully installed, and the client will not run successfully.

Run the client:
Run fah.exe to start the SMP client. You will get another pop-up firewall window. Note: We do not officially support running the SMP client as a service, although people have found the following to work
Ok, after that is done, run fah.exe. You will be getting a lot of questions. From memory, answer the following:
  • User Name: Coolwaters
  • Team Number: 37726
  • Launch Automatically: No (if you want it as a service, fine, but I prefer to launch the client manually...: I want control over as much that's running on my computer )
  • Ask Before...: No
  • Use Internet Explorer Settings: No
  • Use Proxy: No
  • Allow receipt ... > 5MB: Yes (you want them... more points!)
  • Change advanced options: Yes
  • Core Priority: Idle
  • CPU Usage requested: 100
  • Disable highly optimized...: No
  • Pause if battery power...:No
  • Interval: 3 min
  • Memory, in MB...: as much as possible
  • Request ... without deadlines: No
  • Set -advmethods flag: Yes
  • Ignore deadline information...: No
  • Machine ID: 1

After that is set up, the client will start running. LEAVE THE CMD WINDOW OPEN, otherwise the client stops. In the CMD window, you'll see the progress of the WU. Note that these are heavy hitting WU's, and they move slowly (around 10-15 mins per 1%, depending on your overclock). However, on average, one of those WUs is 1760 points (a little better than your 15 points eh). They have short deadlines though, so you need to fold as much as you can (~16 hours per day at the least).

Hope this helps you.

And in a way, points are a benchmark

You use XP?

and yes, this will only work when your OS is password protected (easy to set up, and HIGHLY recommended... you don't want hackers be able to snoop around *that* easily now, do you?).
