Yes 7 threads rarely work right, odd numbers of 7 or greater cause issues. Lock it to 6 threads or do two cpu's of 4 and 3 respectively.

It does but you may end up starving your GPU of resources and slowing that down by more than the cpu folding gives you. What goyu are you running?

Yes - if you are GPU folding on the same machine, it's best to have 1 core (not thread) free for each GPU.

Actually, one thread is enough but it still needs to be an even number. 8 threads total - 1 for the GPU = 7 threads but you need an even number so drop it down to 6 on the CPU. Works like a charm.
