1) Questions and Answers : Windows : New: Throttling CPU Usage, Simple BOINC GUI (Message 25801)
Posted 1 Jan 2007 by quoc
You will need a newer BOINC client such as the new 5.4.11 to use this functionality

I used version 5.4.11 but the CPU throttle doesn\'t seem to work. I got dual core, and when set the cpu usage limit in my \"global preference override file\" to 70, both cpu still runs about 50% each, and that make the total cpu usage to be 100%. I then thought the limit works for each core, so i try to limit it down to 40%, and each still run at 50% just like before.

So which version would work correctly?
2) Questions and Answers : Preferences : How to increase cpu usage? (Message 24930)

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?
