Recently came back to milkyway, testing my cards at two WUs each....kinda warm, 85 to 90C.
My rig:

AMD FX-8350 at 4100~4300mhz
16gigs of G-Skill Ripjaws RAM at 1600mhz
2-Powercolor R9 280Xs 1030/1500mhz
Gigabyte GA970-UD3 MOBO
Samsung EVO 850 SSD
EVGA Supernova P2 1200W PSU

This is the one I have and it works for me.


I set gpu usage to .33

Good luck crunching!

I have a NV GT730.

I have let run:
MilkyWay@Home v1.02 (opencl_nvidia) [0.4% CPU time usage]
Milkyway@Home Separation (Modified Fit) v1.36 (opencl_nvidia_101) [2.7% CPU time usage]
... the GPU Load is just ~50% each on the GT730 with 1 app/WU.

How could I increase the GPU Load?
With the prefs?
Currently they are default:
- - - - - - - - - -
Maximum CPU % for graphics 0 ... 100 - 20

Frequency (in Hz) that should try to complete individual work chunks. Higher numbers may run slower but will provide a more responsive system. Lower may be faster but more laggy. - 60
default 60 (corresponds to 60 fps)
Period (in milliseconds) to check for scene updates - 30
Change how fast the view randomly moves around - 5
Make particles bigger or smaller - 250
Make particles bigger or smaller when using uglier particles - 40
- - - - - - - - - -
How (with which values) I should change it?

Or I should create an app_config.xml file for to let run 2 WUs/GPU?
How should look the entries?


An app_config.xml file is needed to run more than one unit at a time here.

Can you provide a basic app_config.xml? I am interested, I use one for Seti@home.
