F@H Bogging PC down - Page 2

post #11 of 42
Thread Starter 
I still havn't solved my problem, I've tried default bios settings, reinstalling F@H, tried some 3rd party programs mentioned above...

Anymore suggestions to try? It gets boring watching my text lag when I type.

Btw, My GPU temp stays at about 80C

The performance of any given Fah client depends on the drivers that you are running too. If your update was from a very old client, try one of the newer graphics drivers. I've seen reports here of dramatic reductions in CPU usage while folding GPU clients. This could just be a client/Driver mismatch.

I have the latest drivers for my video card.

I found that if you open the gpu client and have it render on the screen it takes up a lot of cpu, but if you just leave it running in the task bar its fine. Also I've noticed that when you shut it off, it doesn't always kill the process, so I've had to go into task manager and kill it manually.

Yeah, I've noticed that so I always leave it in the task bar. I want to fold though. I am currently trying a different set of drivers.

What drivers are you using? I have a thread up about what drivers to use and a few guys have suggested the beta 180.60's as they drop your CPU usage significantly on the GPU client. Try those, I'm going to put them on my rig today and see.

I was using 180.48 but then now I am using 178.24 and notice the same effects with lag text, moving applications around, laggy menu bars, etc. I am going to try those beta drivers.

Ok so I'm pretty sure its not a driver issue because all 3 of those drivers I tried produce the same results, Other things I have tried is changing the affinity and priority. I've tried messing w/ some of the advanced settings. Any other ideas? Thanks

Did you see my post about the 180.60's? I saw you used the 180.48 and the 178, did you try the .60s?
