Is SETI that bad?

I know this isn't the SETI forum, but I am only posting it here because I am concerned w/the temps during OC'ing. I just started running [email protected] on my TEC/Water cooled system. Well, I can run it all the time, and it is fine, but when it is minimized, the temps go way down.

Does it only process when it is restored or maximized? Because that's what it looks like, I just want to make sure!

hmm.. that is very strange cause mine is just the opposite. When I minimize setti, my temps increase dramatically. From my experience, it depends on what mode your running it in. I have mine set to "run all the time (recommended for fast computers)". When it's maximize to the screen where it shows graphics, the temps go way down and it processes the wu much slower. When I minimize, it processes the wu VERY fast and the temps go up about 6-7c.

Make sure you have "run all the time" selected.

That wasn't set correctly. I just re-installed it, and forgot to enable it to run all the time. Thanks

My temps are now @ 3-4c, but htey stay the same when I full screen!

do you need winNT to run command line? also, how does command line version work? - i still am getting 18-22Hr WUs even with a 700/750 athlon.

I'm right on course to get an WU done in just over 6 hrs. I was having the same problems with 14-16 hour WU, and being pss'd. I've been messing w/my RAM settings, and I am getting it up, well... down there.

All you do is put a shortcut on your desktop, d/click and it runs itself. To stop it, be sure the window is active and hit CNTL/C. That's it !

This utility will let you see what's going on...

Mr. Bigglesworh, Sir - To run the command-line in '98, just click it like any other program
. To monitor it, use Setispy. It's available as a download on our team web-site (check my sig) along with all the current versions of [email protected] If you set your dial-up networking to 'connect when application requests it' (or something like that), the commandline version dials up perfectly to collect new WUs and send back done ones - just make sure you enable 'disconnect after x minutes idle' al the phone bill might kill you - LOL.

Anyhow, by this point you should be getting 6-6.5 hour WUs. This being the case, it is only morally right that you join the Athlon Owners Club at Seti (again, see my sig). You caon be the 10th, and fastest, member
.
