"Folding@home has run into a serious error running the core. and will shutdown." just the message everyone wants to see. I have NO clue what it means. Anyone have an idea?

Which client did you run when that happened?

Nevermind, sorry i got the error message gone...I just took out -local as a flag for the CF setup.

I used the GPU2 client for them both and have them NOT in crossfire and one gpu is getting 500-600 iter/sec and the other only gets 30 iter/sec and says "core is not running now"

Oh ok, glad it sorted out.
Not sure on the iter/sec but if you have the viewer (protein spinning) open you are doing it wrong. Close it cause it lowers your performance, it will continue running while in systray.

Use HFM (guide) to know if everything is ok.
Also let us know your PPD.

Ok, so I didn't lose the error message. It comes up only when I run my second GPU. the first one is running great. I am getting 9322ppd on my i7 with HT off at 4.2Ghz, which is normal, so I've read. and I'm getting 3997ppd on my 5870 at 880 core and 1250 memory.

EDIT: just found out you ARE supposed to keep Crossfire on, otherwise windows doesn't recognize the second card. anyways they are both running now and I'm waiting for them to update the ppd and then i'll let you all know. thanks SO much for help you guys have been!

Alright...well after stabilizing here are the ppd's I'm getting

i7 @ 4.2Ghz No HT - 9322.6ppd
Sapphire 5870 @ 880 Core w/ 1250 Mem - 2229.8ppd
Asus 5870 @ 880 Core w/ 1250 Mem - 2229.8ppd

i7 load temp is stable at 68 celcius

Turning on HT is what you want to do, you may need to redo your overclock because HT is just differant.. Also keep in mind your old stable clocks may not be stable for folding.. I can't speak to the 5870's but those ppd look about right.
My i7 sits between 65 and 75c depending on how hot hot it is in my room. So you should be fine there..

I definately recommend putting HT on you will be able to fold the bigadv units and get 25-30k ppd just from your i7. I personally only fold on my CPU, as the 4870 takes too much cpu power away and really doesn't give me much ppd.

Keep in mind as well that the Time Per Frame (TPF) will be different for each work unit even if it's on the same CPU. For example a bigadv work unit on my i7 can be 32 minutes or some of them are 45 or so minutes PER FRAME(or per 1%.. while the regular advmethod units will take 3-8 minutes TPF.

PS - From everythign I've read multiple GPU folding is one of the more difficult things to setup as far as folding goes. I remember the days when dummy plugs were necessary, don't know if it still is..
