Noob help needed (2600K)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So i went through and followed this tutorial.
http://www.overclock.net/folding-hom...mp-client.html

Now, it is using all 4 core and 4 threads of my cpu, however, i want to be able to control how many cores it can use at any one time... Perhaps im not using the right program for me?

Basically, i want to fold for an hour in the morning then 5 hours in the afternoon on a weekday.

You are not folding bigadv correct?

If you want it to use less core/threads add a # after the -smp flag.
For example \\Folding@home-Win32-x86.exe" -smp 7

For the amount of hours you fold just close the client when you want to stop and reopen it when you want to go back to folding. It saves where you last left off but I warn you the longer you take to finish the less bonus points you will get. Also keep an eye on the deadline so you do not miss it.

So if i wish to use core 0,1 and 2 as well as there threads, i put -smp 7?
Thanks for the help
And thats right, no -bigadv.

The # represents the threads, so 7 would leave you with 1 idle thread which is more than enough for most things.

Remember the SMP client throttles down so if something else needs the CPU it will give that program priority. So keep it at 7 and I promise you will not notice it unless you are rendering/encoding.

Well i usually play cod while i have teamspeak, msuic, windows live and google chrome running. I know it throttles back, but im just worried about these 75 degree temps effecting my cpu's lifespan, so i want to thorttle it till i get a heatsink in 3 months time.

I can have chrome, hfm, music, game, gpu clients, MSI AB, smp client and never really notice it. Though in some games I will for example Metro2033 since that game needs a ton of resources.
Not sure about COD though, never really played online to notice how much it effects me.

What heatsink are you using and what clocks?

What heatsink are you using and what clocks?
Stock clocks on Stock heatsink,
VID is on auto and is on 1.25V

Its best to do it by the shortcut, if you ever need to switch to more threads you do not have to enter the configuration and just change the #.
Or like myself I have around 5 different shortcuts with every flag I need.
