Hi everyone,

I just starting to take part in BOIN with CPDN. My machine CPU is AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 3600+. When i run Boin with only one project, which is CPDN, the cpu usage is only 50% using both cores. How can i make BOIN utilise the other 50% cpu power that\'s sitting idle?

Each core is 50%, but both cores together is 100% of the system. That\'s the way it figures it out.

Go to \"your Account\" on the left side of the page, Preferences/view or edit.
Edit Preferences: On multiprocessors, use at most 2 processors.
Click \"Update Preferences\" at bottom of page.
Finally, go to \"Projects\" in Manager and click update.
That should start download of another Model to keep your other core occupied.
