So I got my XFX 7950 back and so far, it's going strong. Didn't need a clean install either
Now how do I set up my i5-3570k and XFX 7950 in order to get the most folding and PPD out of it while the computer is turned on? Right now, I notice that Core 16 takes up 1 core, thus leaving only 3 cores for CPU folding, severely hindering my PPD. I've already added in the client-type: advanced flag, so hopefully my next GPU core will be a Core 17. Am I missing anything else? Or has AMD folding not improved as much as I thought, and it'll always require some CPU power in order to power the GPU?
