Default Folding on GPU+CPU

Is there anything special i have to do to run F@H on my cpu as well as my gpus? im assuming just downloading the cpu client and installing it might mess something up on the gpu clients im using

Nope they install in different directories so you are good. The main thing to watch out for is using different machine IDs (its in the F@H config dialog box that opens when you do your first run). Some people also set the CPU to lowest priority, and the GPUs to slightly higher (its in the same section of the setup as the machine IDs, but at the top of the window). You might also want to set your CPU client to use 70-80 % max. I believe the ATI gpu core needs more CPU cycles than the nVidia, so you may have to experiment with this.

If you already have multi-gpu setup then installing this will not be too hard.
