You'll get used to both... takes me about 2 minutes to setup 2+1 Clients, and I don;t hear the noise anymore.

Yup... but it's a pain to get both GPU's going. Not to mention the whine noise it's making. I think it's giving me a headache.
Turn your fans up higher it helps mask the whining noise, and then you can crank the shaders for more PPD...:biggrin:

Welcome to the Team, and our addiction...:haha:

I have a Dell 2709w, so i connected my HDMI to it to let me use the second GPU. Is there any way around that? I don't want to extend my desktop, and simply connecting it doesn't work very well.
I've been able to get 13000 PPD so far. If i figure out a way to maximize the cpu folding, i'll be golden.. so far i'm getting only ~800 PPD on my 4Ghz i7... is that low?

EDIT: After some overclocking... i'm now up to 18500 PPD :clap: ...and the whine is unbearable! Guess i'll just leave it running when i go to work.

If VMware Server worked in Vista 64, it would be simple. 1 server, 1 ubuntu VM, 1 instance of FAH with -smp 8 flag. But it still doesn't have the signed drivers, sigh.

Wow... looks like the VMware folding is really stressing the CPU out. I have my I7 at 4Ghz with 1.27 vcore... i thought it was stable until i started folding with it. I guess i'll have to play around, and figure out if it's the memory or cpu that's causing BSOD. It runs fine for a couple hours before it crashes :(.

On a side note... how do i check my PPD for the VMware folding under linux?
My GTX 295 is giving me between 10k to 17k depending on the WU. I would love to know what my total would be.
