I'll be taking 7th in the next 24 hours (unless daytona fires back up), but then it's a LOOOOONG run to 6th. I need to get a new PC at home to boost my count!

Haven't completed a unit yet it's only using 25% of all four cores?

You need to run the SMP client. The normal client is not SMP capable.

Here's a list of the Beta clients - http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther

Assuming you're running Windows, you need to scroll down to find "Windows: V6 Beta SMP2/CPU clients". You also need to register your name to get a passkey - http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey

I'll get you the SMP client config that I use in just a second...

Okay, here's my install guide.

Download the client. Create a new folder in your C: drive, and save the EXE there. When you run the EXE, it assumes that the folder that it's in, is where it is to be installed.

Run the EXE.

User name? - Your Username
Team Number - 49813 (for Badcaps)
Passkey? - The key you registered
Use Proxy? - probably the default of [no], but if you do, enter yes and configure
Big units? - I always set this to big
Change Advanced Options? - yes
Core priority - leave at idle
CPU Usage - leave at 100
Disable assembly code - leave at no
Pause if battery power - leave at no if desktop, enter yes if laptop (may also want to enter yes if you have a UPS)
Checkpoint Interval? - I set this to 5. Limits how much work has to be redone if I reboot the PC
Memory to indicate available - Just leave this to the default of max
Set -advmethod always? - set to yes; this will get you the most points.
Ignore deadlines - default no
Machine ID - leave at 1
CPU affinity - no
Additional client parameters - enter -smp
IP address to bind - leave blank

At this point, the client should fire up and download its first packet. You may still see that it's not using all the cores. If that's true, you need to close the client, go back to the install directory, delete your entire work folder, and restart the client. sometimes it takes a "reboot" of sorts to get the right work packet.

Any questions, let me know, and happy Folding!

I see you dropped your first WU. Only 600 points, which is pretty low for a SMP Advmethod unit. I think you have to complete a number of advmethod units before you start getting the bonus, though. If it doesn't improve in a few days, we'll have to revisit your config.

josh,

It doesn't look like you're returning quite the points that I thought you would. What hardware are you running on?

You should be getting more points, then. Make sure you have both advanced methods and smp working.

The points that I'm returning are from a single PC - Core2Quad 3.0ghz Q9650

I have been less than consistent lately. I haven't had luck getting the amd64 version of folding to play well with fedora x64 (via the origami script). my two other folders have been operational off and on (a p4 ht 2.8 and a pIII 800mhz).

Not to put you down or anything, but my experience has been that anything less than a Core2 processor probably isn't worth the power and heat output to run F@H.

I don't bother running it on my A64x2 at home, because my GeForce 8600 can outperform it... (I also don't bother running it on the video card, because it slows down all video performance... even just browsing the web).

But hey... it's your power and A/C, so you're welcome to keep on chugging!
