How to use Multi GPU Nvidia Folding - Page 13

post #121 of 165
Has this always been in the essentials thread?
I set my dual gpu up the other day and did not see this. I followed the XP one with the needed changes and got it working though.

Maybe I was just too excited to have gotten all my stuff together and looked over it?

Do I need to install the GPU folding client twice or is it simply a case of creating a shortcut for each GPU, and seting up their own folders in the AppData/Roaming directory as in this guide?

You only have to install it once, then just copy the folder for how many GPUs you're running...Don't forget to go into the client file and change the machine id or you'll get errors...

OK. So I have two different GPU folding clients installed, each with their own respective AppData/Roaming folders.

I also have two shortcuts, one for each GPU client. I have made sure for the Start in that they each point to their respective folders in AppData/Roaming. I have also assigned the respective client o the Target part of each shortcut. However, when I try to use the "-gpu0" or "gpu1" at the end I get an error.

Without designating a graphics card for each client both of them do run fine, but according to my temperatures it appears that both clients are only running on one graphics card. One of my GTX275 cards is in the low 80*C band while the other is at about 64*C.

I have also assigned different machine ID's for all my folding clients. CPU is 1, GPU1 is 2, and GPU3 is 3.

Have I set things up correctly and is each client running on a different card despite not assigning a specific graphics card to each client? I ask as the temperatures on my second card seem pretty low.

It could be 1 GPU is running a good WU and 1 is running a 511 WU which would explain the difference in temps...

As far as the -gpu0, -gpu1 flags not working, that's odd I haven't ran into that problem before...

Perhaps I misread your post, but it sounds like you have two separate clients "installed"?

You should only have one installed. Then copy the actual folders themselves.

I installed the first GPU client, and then copied all the client files and put them in a new folder to give myself two clients. As previously stated, each client has its respective files in AppData/Roaming too.

According to GPU-Z my first graphics card is running at its full 3D clocks while the second seems to be running at lower clocks as if its in 2D mode.

I neglected to mention earlier, but I do have a dummy DVI plug attached to the second card, SLi is disabled, and I stretched my desktop over the "multiple monitors".

Question, this can only be done with the system tray client correct? The gpu2 console client does not get installed and runs from a single folder.
