FAH CPU usage capped at %93

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I run FAH SMP on my X4 965. It runs terribly with a PPD of 1800 or so.

I have tried many things to fix this. The only thing I can think of now is that FAH seems to ignore 7 percent of whatever CPU time is available.

When I had FAH running on 3 cores only (GPU on the last core), the SMP client would use 68% out if its available 75.

Now I have only SMP running on all cores, and it uses 93%.

What gives?

I blame your sig quote, its off by 1 digit to be the same as your usage.
Its trying to be alike.

Have you checked if anything else is trying to use the CPU cycles?

I have checked. The 7% is just going to System Idle Process (not being used)

Have you tried deleting the core and redownloading it?
