Folding client V7 - SLI - Cannot use system during folding..fix?

So I'm folding again, mostly to try and heat up this apartment because it's freezing and I don't pay for power. Computer will help with the heat.

I'm using the V7 client which was 10x less of a pain in the ass to setup. It works great.

I'm only folding with my 2GPUs..

BUT, when I'm folding, I cannot use my system at all. it lags for 30 seconds or more each click I make..

When I used to fold before, my computer was totally usable albeit a few jitters here and there...


How do I set it up so it doesn't completely take over my system??? I don't see any options other than CPU% which did nothing to help.

Thanks.

Click on 'configure', choose the 'advanced tab' and make sure that FAHCore priority is set to 'lowest possible' (should be defaulted like this).

Other than that, it is still a beta, so there may still be some bugs. I'm running it on both my machines (flawlessly), however I've only got a single GPU in each one, so I don't know how it would react to an SLI rig.

You can try and reduce the gpu usage through the advanced tab in V7 if it is a gpu related lag.

It is set to lowest possible usage, I have the cpu set to 90%, but it's gpu lag, because it happens even when I'm not using the cpu to fold.

I have windows 98 graphics settings, helped a bit, but i still can't use my pc.

Where is the gpu usage setting? I dont see it in my advanced tab

disable the SLI mode completely, I have a 9800GX2 and is unusable when SLI is active and folding.
