Hi,

Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but is there a way, without the risk of damaging my computer that i can allocate the model more CPU time?

Thanks

Don\'t run the screen saver
Always wait until just after a checkpoint*** to Exit from the program and then Windows.
Make sure that the front and back fans on the computer box are kept clean, as well as the fan on the cpu heatsink. (This will prevent the cpu slowing down due to thermal throttling.)
In your General preferences on your account page, make sure that: Leave applications in memory while suspended? is set to yes.
Run the computer 24/7.
Minimise your own computer use, so that the program gets more time.


*** To see the checkpoint, you need to remove the overlay by pressing Z, then press 8.
