post #1151 of 2256
Normally I wouldn't care too much but I don't want to bring you guys down. I am GPU folding, but the rig is at a comfortable temperature and my CPU never seems to peg, (or even go above 60% for that matter) so I don't think that is an issue. I only have Afterburner and the 2 folding programs going when I leave it, so I don't think anything else resource hogging is an issue.

Tips? Anything I should check? Different program I should use?

It sounds like are folding using only 2 cores. What program are you using?

the standard FAH V6 SMP client. All 4 cores are being used when I look at the stats.

So, what exactly does your core utilization look like? Are all 4 being used at 100%? You noted before that it rarely pegged above 60%.

Core 1 is around 40%, core 2 is around 30, Core 3 is around 40% and Core 4 is around 30%. Idle (no applications) is Core 1 around 4% with everything else 0-1%.

This makes sense because there are 2 cores on each die, and theoretically the first core on each would get priority.

However, it seems like I should be utilizing a lot more resources....

Try downloading the GPU Tracker V2 program. That will control your CPU and GPU folding from one program, and is probably the easiest client to use.

You're not using all your cores. Make a shortcut to the folding program executable on your desktop, right click it, hit properties, and in the "target" section, write:

-smp 4

That will use your CPU 100% smile.gif

Ohh god. So excited to be running at a solid 50+C now biggrin.gif

I'll try this later today and I'll let you know how it goes.

Alright, I hope that's it!

If it was using everything, you should be on all 4 cores at 100%. Usually it defaults to all cores without needing that flag which is why I'm confused, but hopefully that'll fix it.
If that doesn't work, open task manager, right click the folding client task, and give it high priority.
post #1160 of 2256
You'll have to wait for the current WU to finish before it uses all cores, I'm not sure it's wise to change the this mid-WU IIRC, remember seeing a warning about it somewhere.
