Thread: GTS 250 issue,,or not?

Just now sat down with a bowl of chocolate ice cream, kissed wife goodnight and slid out the keyboard tray to play! You are just getting up so You may be called upon. I can read one post in one forum and it says easy as pie. Other posts call it a daunting task.. Since you guys have done it and never sterred me wrong I have Plenty O Faith.
Gone to read one more post about the pitfalls of file sharing them I am going for it. BTW, what is FAHSpy?
Fahmon, Fahspy, HFM.net - Hardware Canucks

Hi, didn't see this until just now (when I refreshed my Subscriptions page)...
I've never used FahSpy, but HFM is a piece of piddle to set up... Not quite as easy as FahMon, but not by much - and the bonus is that you can just set it up once and be done with it, as mentioned previously, rather than once per user account per computer...
TBH, and without having tried FahSpy, they're prolly much of a muchness where one is better in some way/s and another is better in others.. AFAIK, HFM is the only one that can calculate bonus points that are available for SMP folding on CPU clients...

Hmnn, you just caused me to remember..I am losing points on this rig by not running the systray client on both CPU's, Fahmon can monitor them just like you set up the 295!
I need to get some more Heath slivers for my ice cream, here I go!

Net, you'd be better off setting them up as either CLI/console versions or running them as a service - you lose a bit of PPD due to the processing power to generate the GUI showing the 'actual' Folding when you run the GUI version...
If you're running a single core CPU, or don't always kick the client off when you log in, then I'd suggest that you run them as services - you can run as many instances as you have cores if you run them as services. If you're always logged in, have the client running in a window at all times (and don't mind having the extra bar/button on your TaskBar, and are running a multiple core CPU, then I'd say that you should go with SMP client in 'non-stealth' mode...

I amy do that, I ran out of steam last might but i would like to squeeze the extra 400-600 PPD out of the CPU's and actually would prefer to see them under FahMon.
Got tired and went on to bed, now it crazy at work.
We'll discuss. I appreciate your input!

Any update on this...? BTW, if you run the CPU client in a CLI window (rather than as a service) then you can get a bit more out of it if you run the SMP client, rather than the single core equivalent.... The only reason I don't run SMP (other than on the i7 VM running -bigadv) is that my [CPU] clients run in stealth (service) mode...
