Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.
Hello all! This is just a quick reminder to ensure that you are posting a new thread or question in the appropriate forum. The Feedback forum is overwhelmed with questions that are having to be moved elsewhere.

    Try this first:
    • Open HFM.
    • Edit> Preferences> "Startup & External" tab.
    • Check the "Load Configuration File" box.
    • Browse to your Folding folders (I think they were saved in C:\), and then into the HFM folder. Choose the config.hfm file.

    Unless you've got -bigadv on for some reason it looks like something's almost completely monopolizing your CPU, and it ain't folding! :o

    That would be the GPU. :p

    Plus, the SMP has a bonus point system; the longer it takes to finish, the less bonus points, and the less PPD you'll get. So if the rig is off overnight, when you come back, you'll have less PPD.

    Yeah, but the GPU shouldn't be hogging 3.5 cores! :eek:

    There would be other factors too; a poor WU (P6701), the fact that HFM hasn't reached 3% to get an accurate reading, possible other things in the background, as well as the fact that the computer might have been off.

    Besides, I've found a few times that a program might only use ~10% of the CPU, and be limited to only one core, but that will still cripple the SMP client. So setting the affinity of the SMP client to ignore that core makes a huge difference.
