Laggy CPU after starting folding
 
I have just restarted the GPU folding on my gf's rig and I must say the whole computer gets quite laggy, its an i3 530, with a GT 240 ddr5 and 4gb RAM.

Based on my experience with my own rig (in sig), this is not normal, I could game while folding, here I have a hard time using FF. On average the CPU usage is at around 20% on 2 threads, peaking at 100% whenever I start to do a little something. The other 2 threads basicly peak at 20% max. The priority is set to low.

Try stopping gpu folding while using computer, it may not be able to handle using cpu+gpu+general use.

I am only GPU folding, there is no folding done on the CPU.

Hmmm...you could try a different priority manager to see if that helps.

I think it is the video card lagging. I have a GTS 250 and a 9800GTX and they lag too, only the 460GTX is not lagging while folding.

That is the thing w/ GPU folding. Quite often it makes the GUI choppy/laggy. If you are using the system tray client you can try lowering the 'CPU Usage Percent' in the advanced panel. I generally keep mine around the 85% mark.

As lowfat said, unless you have a higher end card it'll be laggy unless you turn down the priority. My GTS250 and 460 lagged pretty bad, my 560ti doesn't lag quite as bit.

I was having a lag issue ( not doing gpu folding though) and it seemed to stop once I stopped using the FAH client control and just used FAH6 I still getting some lag once in a while but it is more like a stutter for maybe 1 second.

after rearranging the cards, changing the slots, I made the GTS 250 the display card and although I am folding on it and on the CPU using all 4 cores, there is no lagging. so I guess is something else. i also removed the ATI drivers, I had mixed cards, ATI and nVidia, and maybe that was the issue.
