CPU Folding problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
AAs the title states I am having some problems with my CPU folding.
I installed my WC loop yesterday and was able to just do a qucik stable 4Ghz OC.
Now though, when folding the program isn't using my full CPU it is only using about 8% and also after it completes 1% it states "writing local files".
I have never seen that before and was wondering if you guys had. Before it would just do 1% at a time till complete.

This 420 PPD is killing me, lol. Any info that could/might/would work is welcome!

TIA

Have you tried deleting the WU and seeing if you get a -bigadv?

Yeah, I have deleted the "queue.dat" file a few times as well as the work folder to see if it would make a difference and no such luck.

Try downloading version 6.34...

I think you can only get bigadv with the 6.34. No more bigadv with the previous versions.

Yeah, that's why I asked him to download it. I remembered something along those lines.

This is correct.

Strange, though, that it seems like he's getting unicore WUs. It should just give him normal SMP.
