Which client are you using ??

The 'classic' or uniprocessor client can only use one core at a time. If you're using the SMP client it can only use 4 cores and wll still not max out your cpu.

Your best bet is two[2] SMP instances for max points.

If you need more help start a new thread, there's lots of folks that will be glad to advise.

Welcome to the Team...

Run the SMP console client as well, or if your CPU supports virtualization, follow the guides in this thread:

The Client you wish to use is the GPU Systray Client.

Alright, I missed this thread when I applied for the tags. I fold under the name Gunny_Highway (Cookie for whoever can tell me where that's from), stats are here: Folding@Home
I'm using this rig as a gaming/folding rig, and I do game quite a bit, so I'm using 4 Unicore clients for my Q9400 @ 3.6GHz so that I can still fold with 3 cores while playing my Source bssed games and 1-2 cores with newer games. Also, deadlines are longer so I don't have to worry that during gaming pausing one or two of them will cause a missed deadline. I also use the GPU2 client for my GTX260, which I believe what I'm going to start trying is folding with a small bit of power while gaming, instead of pausing the thing completely. I get (according to FahMON) aabout 6.5-7K PPD for the video card and a combined total of about 1.2K PPD when all four are running.

Started folding a couple minutes ago, using my PS3. I would add my computer in the mix, too, but it's a crappy Dell laptop that crashes two or three times a day. Can't wait until exams are over and I can start working to save up for a good computer.

Yes I did! Thanks wifey... we actually were folding with her machine last year but stopped when I change out her video card for an ATI. With the contest I figured it was time to fold again, and leave it folding when we can.
