Let´s see how much cpu-power the madshrimps have ! Let"s NOT waste all the empty cycles of our systems ... Let"s do something usefull with that highly OC´ed rig !

If you have doubts about the client consuming all ur computing powah :

The results of our testing couldn´t be clearer, at least for the systems we´ve tested today. Quite simply, the impact of running Folding@Home in the background is negligible. Even the most discerning users won´t notice it. Windows allocates CPU time slices according to process priority, and as long as the Folding@Home client is running as an idle-priority task (which is how it runs by default), one shouldn´t notice any slowdown.

Connection Troubleshooting:

Core download problems = firewall problems ?
*Try quiting the client, re-configure your firewall and start it back up.
* Did you fill in your proxy? (e.g.: Telenet users)
