Do you mean don't do the regular SMP? will one bigadv be enough for the week?

Sorry for the train of questions
The deadlines for Fermi units are about 5 days. More than enough time since they only take 1-2 hours to complete.

Regular SMP gets about 12-15k or so over a 24 hour period.
GPU WU's for your 460 get about 10-12k over a 24 hour period.
Bigadv's on a 4-4.1 GHz i7 get about 33-35k a day. These typically take 2.25 days of nonstop folding to complete and once you turn it in you get about 77k points give or take. To get your PPD you have to average it out across all the days it took to complete that unit to determine how many PPD you received.

Why are you worried about your CPU temps btw? Concerned about making it last for a while I assume? I'm running my 930 at 4.1 w/ HTing and while folding it sits around 78C across all the cores and haven't had any problems to speak of since I built it.

Can you run 2 clients at once? I run GPU client can i run SMP as well?

Yes, most people run 2, 3, 4 or more clients at a time.

I'm not overly concerned its just that to get 4.0 I need just about 1.35V which I'm not too pumped about using 24/7 especially if it is at 100% load. I am alos just a bit nervous leaving it chugging away in my apartment when i'm at work all day.

I just tried my old bios profile for 3.2ghz with 1.088 volts that worked for 5 months for me and got a 101 BSOD in like 5 min on IBT so that has raised some degradation concerns in my mind.

I know some of my concerns aren't that rational but its the thought of my 460's and cpu operating maxed out while I'm at work that makes me nervous....

I wouldn't be all that worried honestly. I've been running my 930 at 1.33 for about 6 months now and had no problems. My buddy's been doing the same volts on his for over a year now while folding damn near 24/7 and still going strong with no problems. I don't think you've been degrading the chip running those voltages.

As far as leaving them to fold while you're doing things so long as your system is rock solid there's no reason to be concerned. I was on vacation for a week and left my system folding the entire time and didn't have any problems. You set up a remote monitoring client or just check the F@H client to make sure things are running smoothly.

You can use HFM.net to monitor your folding or you can use FahMon to monitor it. If you want to monitor the whole computer, use teamviewer.

I just find it odd that I can no longer run my saved BIOS profile.... I had that "stable" for 5 months and now - blah.

By stable I mean 8 hours prime, 50 passes IBT, all benchmarks, gaming etc... and now poof.

65-70c is normal for an i7, these things run rather hot and most people have it hotter than that. As long as you keep it 24/7 under 85c you have nothing to worry about.
Just keep your overclock, I see no reason in lowering it unless your not stable.

HFM & FAHmon remote monitoring are great ways of doing it, also if you have a smartphone you can use TV or LMI to check if you cant do it by your work PC.

Thanks for the advice - maybe I'll mess with my OC again tonight.

That's not quite proof of stable.

Folding will honestly push your system to the limits, and it honestly is probably the best "benching" tool.

I've had an OC look quite stable. 150 passes of Intel Burn Test with max memory, and my computer crashed after 1.5 days of folding.

I've been reading up on voltages a lot lately, as my processor requires extreme numbers to reach a stable 4.2ghz, but from what I've found, 24/7 use with high voltages (1.4+) is doable, without damage to the chip. This is of course, as long as temperatures are kept in check. From the sounds of it, yours are, so there is no need to worry.
