Verify your ppd production on EOCF, to see if it matches your rig. If the client has your username and team, then it should be fine.

notfred is the creator of the client.

How exactly do I verify ppd on EOCF?
I went there and found my stats, but I don't see ppd.

About VMware...
Last night I was running 3 clients with affinity set to 2 cores each as was suggested by some.
Today I decided to just try the clients with default affinity (all cores).
I also set priority for FahCore_14.exe and Folding@home.exe to above normal.
My ppd for the CPU went up, and GPU doesn't seem to be affected much...
Why do I see some people recommending to set affinity for each client to 2 cores?

You haven't cracked the Top 20 yet: somecanadianguy - User Summary - EXTREME Overclocking Folding @ Home Stats

Prifinitty is not required if you are running 3 clients + GPU, since there are enough cycles left for all. I run 3 clients too per i7 (plus a few GPU clients) and see no need to use prifinitty.

This rig can't fold 24/7 because I need to get some other stuff done too.
Maybe when I can put together my own folding monster...

With your rig, you will very shortly: the 20th position has 6144 ppd. You're in excess of 15k.

Well let's hope nothing blows up then...
Not for a little while anyway.

The system is pretty much usable with all this running.
Would have to pause for work and gaming, but the rest of the time it can fold.

With 3 clients and dual GPU clients, I pause my main GPU if I wish to game some. Otherwise, the system is very much usable.

I think I'm getting hooked on this already.
It's for a really good cause and it's fun.

Now I gotta get another gtx275... oh, and a better PSU...
Then a tri-sli motherboard... then another gtx275 or 3 better cards...
Then water cooling... Then another CPU so I can build rig to fold 24/7...

Oh yeah, gotta get the gf a new system too sometime

Man it sucks being broke!

Of course you need em...
You ain't going to fold all them protiens by hand, are you?


We should all get together and build a HWC 1000000ppd supercruncher...
Could run ducts from it to heat half the country in the winter probably.
