    When i folded (a little bit) 4-5 years ago there was another program out like that Fahmon ( i can't recall the name of it) and i liked it too as it did a similar thing, so it nothing really knew to me, just it is a newer program that shows a little more then the program i used 4-5 years ago.

    I would have searched the net for a newer one anyways, but it was a lot easier when mboy67 told me about it as that saved me from googling it.

    glad to see that. What is FanMon giving you for PPD for each card.

    No I just was using another client and team#. Had Killswitch help me setup this one tonight. So far PPD is 5057.56 for one GPU.

    I can't wait until they make a better client to fold better on the 4800 series ... as of right now they are only using about 1/4 (if that) of their potential.

    ATI is on board with FAH, shouldn't be too far off.

    Yeah i heard maybe in a week or sor they will optimize it for usage on all 800 shaders. I am not sure how it all works, but thats what i read is the shaders are not optimized as of yet for 4800 series and folding.

    My gpu right now bounces PPD from 1588-1573-1544 depends on load on GPU.. 1 x 4850 i am running it at stock as i hear many OC'ed cards may cause issues for folding so i trying at stock speeds for now.

    Project 4731

    CPU PPD right now is around 1004.16 - 996 depends on load on CPU ... Q6600 @ 3.4ghz. (for now)

    Project 2665

    I have FahMon setting set to every 3 frames.

    I like to note for those who want to jump onboard.

    Folding will increase temperatures of the CPU and/or GPU if GPU is being used to fold.

    PPL should post system specs in order for us to state whether or not you should be folding with your PC.

    I hate to see someone without good cooling fry a componet out.

    So basically if you have a HIGH-END system .. you should already have good cooling, but some HIGH-END pc's on the market don't have adequate cooling.

    If you have a low-end PC then better cooling is needed/recommended based upon the Build already.

    Yeah right now i checked it and GPU is at 55C now it fluctuates like all will do so to about 60-63C, yours should go up here and there to 56C maybe.

    Right now GPU PPD is 1296 and CPU is 1708 woot woot.

    Now i have my new Heatsink and Fan installed i have CPU at 100% instead of 75% what a difference is PPD now.

    Temps are about 10-12C lower with new heatsink and fan, plus arctic silver 5 and thats (AS5) not even broke in yet.

    CPU averages 45C full load and one core peaks 52C at times, fluctuates from 43-52C.. before it would peak 63C and average 57C.

    Idle is around 29C .. woot and before it was 35-36C.

    Awesome sink so far and when AS5 breaks in about 3-5 days i hope it drops 3-5C more.

    Oh and i am 3.4ghz still, but will try 3.6ghz again as i have new heatsinka and fan installed ... Heat should spike maybe 53C-55C tops at 3.6ghz depends on Volts too.

    So as long as i stay 60 or under its ok. well even 63C not bad, but with Ninja REV B forget it at 3.6ghz temps were 65C-70C and peaked around 75C.

    My 2 cards get around 1200 PPD each running with a 50% load and topping out at about 60*C. I'm not sure what my fan speeds are at because I flashed both cards with my own bios which I edited to ramp up the fan speeds alot with small temp increases.
