Personally i like the software but i would have liked if there was more control of the voltages for the Cpu,Nb as using the turbo mode limits you to depending how high you have left your cpu voltage in your bios. ( Energy Saving Tip).
Is that so? So that means I can buy a bunch of el-cheapo AMD SLI or Crossfire mobos pair them up with a low-end, energy efficient AMD chip like the 5200+ and have enough CPU processing power to handle folding on the GPUs.

I thought the GPU client was bottlenecked by the processor? Or was that only the first client?
