LinusTechTips @Folding Team - Important Info Inside

Is there any way to limit GPU usage in the latest version of F@H? I can't really fold with the GPU without any GPU limiting features.
You can limit the CPU by reducing the number of cores used, but there doesn't seemt o be a way to limit the GPU usage. I simply leave the FAHControl screen up, and when I need to, I simply pause Folding while I do something that needs CPU and/or GPU then re-enable afterwards. Also, I saw this on another post:

I had the same problem, yet the I quickly found out that when I was surfing the web in firefox the problem was that it was trying to use "Hardware Acceleration". Go into settings and advanced and deselect use hardware acceleration when possible. Do the same with flash as well if your trying to use that. On my old 8600GT this allowed me to continue using the internet and listening to music/watching videos without lag even thought the GPU was running 100%

Heat and noise is a need when folding ;) Nah, but my room with two computers folding, easily goes up to 30 degress when both set to max.

Ran it overnight, made some progress

These 5770's can sure do some work, albeit slowly, especially with the paired Athlon II x4

Got one WU done at least!

Huh, I guess I'll start folding again. Will wait for an official response though. :P

Well, Slick created the sub forum for us and stickied the post I asked - so I would say if not "official", we have approval. :)

Folding exclusively with my 660 Ti for now with estimated ~38000 points per day. I can enable my 3570K as well, but get nervous doing that for extended period times since I only have 30 A on my 12 V rail. I'll be upgrading my power supply soon to an HCG-620M, though.
