have 3 clients up, 2 on this computer and one on the HTPC.  I have been workin like a slave all week, and have not had a chance to mess with this much more.  I want to see if I can get my Phenom II 1090T to 100%, though, and see what kind of WU's it can crank out.

Those 6 core AMD's are getting 11,000 - 12000 ppd with the Windows SMP client when overclocked.

I havn't tried the SMP yet.  Just figured out the multiple clients thing( I think).

While looking through the team page I noticed theres not too much activity, so sorry if all this is old news.

And heres the HTPC

This is a AMD Phenom II 710.  For some reason, Sometimes when I run this computer it only uses one core.  I think it  switches from 3 to 1 every other time the computer boots.  Weird.

You can check to make sure the affinity setting are working properly by clicking on the processes tab in Task manager and right-click one of the Folding instance and click set affinity. If it's working right only the one CPU you designated should be checked.

If it's not working... post what you have written in the target line for your shortcuts and we'll see if we can figure it out :-)

Thanks for all the help.

When I right-click and set affinity, I get: 

"The operation could not be completed

Access is denied"

not sure what is causing this, any ideas?

Perhaps you do no have full admin rights

Go to control panel, user accounts and see what kind of account you're using.

I use Process Lasso: http://www.bitsum.com/prolasso.php

Download the 32bit of 64bit version corresponding to your operating system. Once installed it's simply a matter of right clicking the app you wish to set affinity and priority for.Set the defaults so you won't have to do it after a reboot.

Thanks for the link, that worked.

Do you have the full version of process lasso?  Just wondering if the trial version would run out or not, because I am leaving town tomorow and was going to fold while Im gone.

I use PriFinitty when I want to set the CPU affinity when folding. Give it a try, its freeware.

No, I use the trial version of Process Lasso and it does not expire. You'll get a popup on Windows bootup telling you you've been using it for blank number of days but it does not expire.

Just started messing around with the smp.  Norton Sonar kept deleting fahcore_a3 over and over again until I disabled it... 

 The SMP client takes cpu load right up to 100, gonna work with this for awhile and see what happens, and If I can get it to work with Norton.  

Just another question about the individual core clients...

When I had 5 fahcore_78's running, each time One would finish a WU and restart, the affinity would go back to 0-5.  I had tried to set the default affinity, but the problem is that all 5 processes had the same name, so each one would default to the same core.  Did anyone else have this problem?
