Well I am just wondering if that would net me any more points, they are set to low right now but is there any harm in setting them to normal?

Don't set them to normal! Most processes run at normal, and you'll make your whole computer unusable while it's running.

should you just leave it as normal priority and let it do what it does?

No it was at 63% chugging along at 5500PPD and as soon as I started up the SMP it tanked to 2000PPD, I just disabled the SMP and am back up to 5800PPD

I set the fah_core 11/14 to above normal with set priority, since when the core stops to send the WU it resets itself. If I don't do this I get the same type of drop. Hope this helps.

It does, I let it go for a little while and my SMP points was at 230PPD and my 9800GTX was at 1000PPD, with just the 9800GTX its around 5700PPD. Should I set the CPU percentage to 50% for each core instead of both at 100%?

Alright, setting the priority helps but how do I set it so that it always goes to above average without my intervention, this will eventually be a folding rig 24/7 and I will not be able to come and mess with it every 2 hours

On the phone so I can't cut and paste, but do a search for setpriority. There is a thread that explains how to use it, it is a program that will automatically set the priority when started.

Ok seriously, setting priorities with other programs in [email protected] is for the last time, unnecessary.
If you're using the GPU tray version, go to the advanced tab and pick the second option. If you're using the cmd version run it with -configonly and you will eventually be questioned about the priority: Idle, or Low; idle is the lowest, low is one step above that.

Well I was getting 5500PPD with it on low and with it on high I am getting 6500PPD so I would consider that a good change, also I could net 4500PPD and 1500PPD with set priority while I could only get around 1300PPD total without it
