    [FIXED] Use specified CPU cores for SMP client

    Post by point on Fri Jan 14, 2011 2:33 pm

    - Detailed description of the bug and how to reproduce it
    I've downloaded and installed FAH GPU Tracker (v3.44) for the first time yesterday evening.
    My main purpose was to use SMP client and switch it now and then with GPU client.
    However running SMP client on both cores makes my temperature rise very high and makes me uncomfortable.

    So I wanted to use only 1 CPU core for my SMP client.
    And so I went to Setup -> Configure -> Enabled CPU Folding -> Clicked on 'Use multi-core SMP client' -> and finally 'Use specified number of CPU cores: CPU cores to use: 1' -> hit 'Apply' -> clicked on 'Close' -> File -> Refresh now

    But it still kept using both of my cores (see screenshots below) Even after restarting the program and running it as Administrator on my Win 7 platform.

    - The contents of LOG.txt located in the main Tracker folder.

    Excuse me for my unawareness.

    I thought it was possible to run SMP client on 1 core, but it isn't made for that I see now.
    I was way too enthousiastic about the outcome of bonuspoints of a WU to read the whole description of the SMP client Embarassed
