I am currently using the Windows CPU console edition, client version 6.23 to fold with my i7 (Windows 7). Does anyone know how to get the version (or what it is) that can fold the -smp or advanced WU's?
From reading some posts over at the EVGA site, the i7 should be able to get about 2500 ppd per 2 cores =3x2500=7500 ppd. I am just barely getting 2k running 6-7. Would like to get some more so we can move up in the ranking.
I tried downloading one reccommended there but keep getting a corrupted file. It was the one to run with VMware.

I imagine the 2500 per 2 cores, is physical cores and not simulated (so half it).

1+5, 2+6, 3+7, 4+8
Just not sure how or what I need. Don't know if the guys from EVGA will want to help someone folding for another team, so thats why I ask here. If it is to build another rig, so be it, then I will. Just wanted to wait for the new hardware to get out. 300's and i9.
Would love to get a project 2681 or 2682 for 25403 points. They would probably take a day or few to finish but even a week for 2 cores it would be worth it.

True about the logical core issue. The current desktop i7 architecture is four physical cores with 2x symmetric multithreading, thus appearing like eight logical cores to the operating system. SMT can be useful in some instances where multiple threads are abundant, though it might not do much for the mostly linear workloads that many distributed computing projects use. You might even actually find slightly better performance by disabling SMT to further reduce scheduling overhead and possibly help limit cache thrashing. YMMV.Robert Richmond | Infinite perceptions.

Here ya go JJ
That's the download
Here's the install guide
Folding@home - FAQ-SMP-WinInstall
I normally put it in it's own folder in "my documents" sometimes if you place it under C drive windows will fight it.
Also always run it the first time as admin.
MAEN crew! Got some work to do today!
Then I'm gonna short stroke the RAID setup, just so I can beat aarons bench scores!

Won't be to hard the poor raptors arn't that fast in transfer speeds, But good luck in beating seek time.

Yeah, I doubt I'll be able to do it. The drives I'm using aren't the best TBH, they are Samsung brand for gods sake.
But it outta be fun to try. (Basically just trying to learn more about RAID in general, optimizing it, etc. This is a good/fun way)

ahhh..... well good luck with your.....samsung drives.
What I really want is say 4 caviar blacks in raid0.

I wouldnt mind if they managed to get SSD cheap enough to be affordable. And get the tech better so they can perform all around better then normal drives ... until then ... ill deal.

Thanks for the link KK. With all the programs out there, I just don't know which ones to use.

Hate to thread crap! But I finally found a slow period in my work schedule to get my machine back to F&H. Limited production for now. Got those upgrades finally installed and running.
