    I'm considering enabling the IGP (integrated graphics processor) to add another GPU. I'll have to see how hot things get. System is only air-cooled as I'm not overclocking.

    Addendum:

    No luck getting the client to recognize the IGP. It might if I make the IGP the primary. The client wouldn't add my AMD GPU until I shut down and rebooted my system but that doesn't help for the IGP. Probably not supported.

    Back to folding for TF! I tried setting the power slider to Full to see what would happen. Temperatures didn't seem to go up much but instead of processing more CPU WU per day I was getting WU that take longer to process - granted more points. I didn't check to see if the estimated points per day increased.

    BTW: Use caution when changing the power slider. From what I can make out from the logs work in progress might get dumped if it requires more cores than the setting allocates. Finish any work and pause before changing the power slider.

    Looks TF will crack 600 total WUs today!

    I've got it going, playing with settings now. I can't necessarily get the priority controls to work well. If I run at "light" folding power, I can't run CPU + GPU. If I go to medium, I can, but then my fans go nuts because my computer is getting old and the airflow is garbage.

    We might hit 700 work units today or tomorrow!

    Light setting uses half of the cores and not the GPU. Medium uses the GPU and all but one of the cores. Full uses GPU and all the cores.

    You can try going into the advanced configuration and under the slot setting the number of threads on the CPU and leave the power set at medium. Or remove the CPU slot from the configuration and run the GPU only. On my new system once the fans on the GPU go over 60% it gets pretty noisy. The case fans at 100% are only just noticeable. The GPU runs much hotter than the CPU for me.
