I don't believe v6 is considered obsolete ... yet. The only recommendation re v6 is that you use the latest version 6.34. That way you'll have access to a4 projects that currently come with a 10% bonus over and above the current Quick Return Bonus that you get by using a passkey.

http://folding.typepad.com/news/2012/07 ... oject.html

http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey

There are a number of features in v7 that can improve throughput. One is that the next WU can be downloaded and ready for processing before you finish the current WU and start processing while the current WU is being uploaded. Another is that v7 clients (FAHClient) on different computers can communicate with FAHControl running on your main computer so that you can monitor and control the clients on all the computers being used without actually having to physically go to those other computers. Also, some projects are specifically set up to only run on v7 so you'll never get them if you're using v6. That may not always be a bad thing if the projects using v6 produce more than the current v7-only projects but it could be the other way around. :wink:

My know-how on folding is a billionth of bollix47's. Anyway, I can tell you I use a three-year-old dual-core desktop with Windows 7. I changed F@H 6 to F@H 7 four months ago, and got more points than before. And let us suppose more points are better for science. I am satisfied with F@H 7. No delays, no WU corruption. I only quit it when installing a large program or performing any other heavy CPU task.

By the way, if F@H 7 were very harmful, would it be the default download?


Thanks bollix47 and cesarsalgado! Sorry about the delay in responding--I have been in transition and setting up a new place. Where are my priorities?!

I appreciate the feedback. I actually missed V6.34 coming out--still on 6.33. I'll upgrade at least to that version. My only reluctance at this point with respect to V7 is not the client per se. Rather, I use HFM to monitor my two computers, and I read that some users were having glitches with HFM and V7. [Having spent much of the past 3 weeks doing the following on non-computer-related activities, I thought I'd give myself a break.] ](*,)

BTW, cesarsalgado, when you said, "I only quit it when installing a large program or performing any other heavy CPU task," is that because the V7 client takes more memory/CPU than V6, or because you are getting larger work units?

Thanks again for your help.

If I "quit it when installing a large program or performing any other heavy CPU task" it is only because installing some software I saw my desktop in trouble. Sorry that my PC knowledge is not much: that trouble may well have been caused by the avast! antivirus or any Windows stuff, or even hardware. Also, I run F@H with 100% CPU usage, which is the default: I suppose changing that could have helped. Anyway, my usual needs do not conflict with F@H: surfing the web, watching music videos, reading, writing... About larger work units, the largest I received took my PC some eighty hours to complete. Now receiving several twelve-hour WUs. I think servers somehow adjust WUs to each client.

In this forum some people can help you on Linux issues, but you will find more help at http://foldingforum.org/

About watching HD videos, it depends on your system specs, but also you can configure the client CPU usage percentage... and do more tweaks other people here and there may tell you better than me.
