Chances are your GTX570 needs a lot more CPU time than my GTS450, but it just seems like a big drop to me

anything else i can look into or try?


Actually, an unstable OC does cause lower PPD sometimes. Previously on my X4 B55, I was unknowingly unstable at 3.9GHz, and was getting around 3-4K PPD on P6701's. Lowered it down to 3.6GHz and PPD shot up to 5-6K PPD.

sorry, I meant like this:

Core_a3 (SMP) = 98%
Core_15 (GPU) = 2%

Folding@home automatically throttles itself when other applications require CPU power. Firefox is running unusually high. Are you running anything CPU intensive within Firefox?

can you just add the "-bigadv" after you complete your 10th WU? I am on #11 now and will let this 11th one complete (at 77% now). You want to add the -bigadv between WU's I would assume as there would not be any benefit to adding the flag now..

Yea go ahead and add it, after your 10th is completed you start to get bonus points.
Since you are working on #11 once it is completed you will know for certain the passkey is qualified once you look at your stats online.
