Hey guys, i started folding couple of days ago and i have a little problem w/ my temps...

well, i have P/// 1Ghz and well, my case sucks and the full load temps are ~60 ~64. ill get a new case soon and maybe even OC my proc. , but i need to do something about the folding stuff.

well first of all, i want [email protected] be hidding so i wont see it. maybe in system tray... (im currently running the no nonesence text version now).

So the point is that i want the app do the job but wont heat up my cpu much.

any suggestions?

You may want to crack open your case and clean it out, especially the heatsink. If thats not enough, you may need to get a new HSF combo.

Naah, its the case...
I dont have enough cooling in my midi case and the PSU is nearly ON THE CPU... so its the case.
I am planning to get a new one on the holidays (Xmas).

So what about MY problem w/ the [email protected] ?

Run the graphical version. It sits in the systray. ;) Or you can use a program called TrayIT to put the console version in the systray.

Thanks, but what about the processor usage?

You can set the max processor usage to less than 100%. Set it to, say, 67% or something. There is an option in the FaH program.

If nothing else, you could take the side off and use a small fan to blow air into your case.

If that did not help then the problem is not your case, the problem sound like your HSF. Look into a new better HSF combo.
