I use avast!

So what I have now is more like two relatively fast boxes than one because of the video card?

I have no way to compare the sizes of what's being worked on with the the work on the old computer using the earlier version. Both current projects in this machine are supposed to be done in about 9 hours, now.

Pete put an oven thermometer in the cabinet and left it on top of the computer for about 10 minutes. The surface of the computer is 90° F, he said, but it doesn't feel hot to my hand. Then again, being that it's less than my body temperature, guess it wouldn't.

Just gauge the total gain by how much more often you see milestones. And that will get even more dramatic once you have successfully sent home enough bonus WUs to start getting the bonus.

Just so ya know, both your cpu and gpu will or should run at 100% usage but they run at low priority so they will back off automatically to allow for other tasks when necessary. Also when you need to reboot your machine there is no need to stop the client beforehand. It will kick back in when the machine reboots,resuming from where it left off.

I have a list of the dates/numbers so it will be easy to compare. Anything other than "few and far between" will be great.

Thank you! Tomorrow, will look around and see what "bonus WUs" and the other bonus you refer to are.

Thank you! I knew the folding would back off to allow for other tasks. Will be nice not to think about shutting the client down unless installing applications.

Does the temperature in the cabinet sound okay?

That's the cash bonus sorto gives out for the fast machines!

It's hard to judge by that method because the cooling fans in the case are throwing out heat from the inside and the cabinet may hold some of that. You really need to know the core temps of the CPU.

Would you suggest I try downloading that Core Temp application again later or tomorrow and see if I can get it without the friggin' toolbar? Hopefully even if it does install against my wishes, this time I'll be able to get it out because my extension list will be visible. Or is there another [free] application you'd recommend?

Give me a few to snoop around and see if I can find it without those dang toolbars. I think I saw something on that. AHH found it. Go to »www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ but underneath where is says Clicking this Download button starts InstallIQ™, which manages your installation, select more downloads and you will get the standalone program in 32 bit or 64 bit. I tested it, it's clean and comes as a zip file. That what originally I got. That installIQ is the culprit.

Got it. Thank you very much. Will close Firefox, Quit FAH, and install.

Edit: Do I need to quit FAH to install?

Not really, I never do. I only stop the gpu one for gpu drivers. Other than that, never.

Well...I just did and will reboot. Is Core Temp one of those things that need to be installed every time you look?

How DOES it look here?

I very much appreciate your help.

That's what you want, those are you core temps. You have a quad core machine. FAH is not running though.

I quit it to install Core Temp and forgot to reboot like I said would do. Will take care of that.

This is the 2nd time in the past few days I haven't been able to post a graphic directly--only a link shows. Wonder what's up with that.

How's it look, please?

Looks marvelous! Those temps are fine. You will be good up 80c(conservative) I hear some say they can be a little higher but I wouldn't trust that myself.
