My System Specs

It used to in v6 I think. But in V7 its in my icon and on my desktop. Not sure why yours isn't. Haven't had issues with it in months, but sometimes when I do, I find it just as easy to uninstall and reinstall. Just my opinion. You do lose some work but nice to have it running right. Also up to you which or all GPU's to use. You can remove them in config tab. By far you get the most PPD now with a GPU. I have a 2700k and 3930 and both pale in comparison to most GPUs. I have used 560 ti in the past and they are usually good for 20-40 PPD depending on WU. They do get hot but 90 or 92 is a bit too hot. Make sure they are dust free, have good airflow, and the fans spin freely when you just blow on them. My experience has been fan failure is the reason for excessive heat. Be watchful.

80 degrees is better. Maybe about right depending on your case case and cooling. I only air cool gpu's, but I do water cool cpu's. I think I read somewhere that most of these gpu's are still safe at 80. Maybe someone else can chime in. I would say your safe at 80 if gpu fans and evga precision fan curves are setup. Also I run my system in the basement and usually leave a window open so the cooler night air helps, especially in winter...

so you installed the client without installing FAHControl.? I have done this myself on headless machines as they are all managed remotely. You should be able to use the latest download from the Stanford site and just install FAHControl only. That will give you the gui.

Do you have the tray icon?
