Hi all

im fairly new to world community grid and I really like it and what I can do with it

my computer is:

intel i5 3570k overclocked to 4.2ghz
16gb corsair vegence pro ddr3

Hi Matt, if you are wanting to do work for World Community Grid to the best of to your computer\'s ability you need to ask this question over in the World Community Grid forum. I must admit the credit you have racked up here at Rosetta in just over a month is not too bad at all. Best of luck on your venture. One thing to note currently World Community Grid does not have any GPU work, to my knowledge there is currently none on the horizon.
Have a crunching good day!!

Here\'s a couple of tips:

If BOINC\'s setting for \"While processor usage is less than\" is not 0, then set it to 0. Otherwise it will stop processing when there\'s other CPU activity.

Make sure \"Leave applications in memory while suspended\" is checked.

Increase the \"Use at most\" memory values as high as you can live with. I use 65% and 96%.

If running more than one project, increase \"switch between applications every\" to a high value (say 1440 minutes i.e. one day)

I think Matt is just getting a little confused with terminology and is asking about the BOINC software in general.

I myself started with World Community Grid (at the time branded as United Devices) and the guys there were always keen to emphasise their brand (they were/are a commercial organisation). Quite a few participants over the years have had difficulty distinguishing the differences between BOINC and WCG\'s own brand software and sometimes see the other BOINC projects as part of WCG rather than WCG being one part of BOINC.

In addition to what dcdc already posted:

- Suspend work while computer is in use?: no
- Suspend GPU work while computer is in use?: no (not available here at Rosetta)
