Default Low PPD for an i7...

Is this a low PPD for a HT i7 running at 3.4 GHz?

It shows up at like 150 PPD...

Look at the time between percentage points. Starting from 10%-11%, your performance is slowing down considerably. Open up Task Manager and see if something else is using your CPU power. If you were gaming or doing some other CPU-intensive task, that would explain the slowdown.

I am not running any other CPU intensive application in the background. At some point, I was playing SC2 so it slowed it down for sure but I didnt played that long.

Well, that must have been what slowed the client down. HFM.NET by default calculates PPD based on the last three frame times, so let the unit complete another 3 percent at least and you should see your PPD numbers jump back to normal.

Also, I'm wondering if I need to do anything to get my stats on the official website and on extremeoverclocking forums? I searched for my username but it dosent show up. Do I just need to wait and it will appear automatically? My account does have a username/passkey.

The username and passkey are Stanford-related, but the EOC site is not run by them; just wait for a day or so after you have stats showing up under Stanford's site.

Once you have folded a unit and uploaded it to Stanford, your name will show up in the stats after the next update.

I am still getting about 400-500 PPD on my CPU setup (excluding the GPU). What could be wrong?
