Most of the Folders here will tell you that the combination of CPU and GPU Folding is one of the best methods for stress testing your rig.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.
I believe towards the end of that thread on VMWare Folding you linked they mention how to get the new version of FahMon to see the VM's. I think this is the right post Core i7 Folding - how to increase your PPD - Page 8 - Xtreme CPU
You should be getting some really nice PPD from that combo, let us know how it goes...
