I'm not interested in points Bruce- it the only simple way to see whether equipment improvements are working and also whether the cost of running the gear on projects is worthwhile. I'm retired- and on a fixed income.
The point is ,which has been missed, is that without the 3rd party ' F@H Spy' running to assist- I would not have asked 'the question' and may well have stopped doing CPU work. That's not a good way to go.

Update:
I know that, to big folders, this is small beer, but I'm quite pleased that the two 6600 cores are banging along at 600ppd each. Trebled up by the fabled bonus, this is 3,500 ppd on top of the well thrashed GT240 @ 5,000 making a respectable 8,500ppd for 5 year old technology running barely enough heat loss to up the PSU fan every few minutes.
This ,I like, as I really feel that optomised rigs are a plus, whatever the usage, and F@H deserves steady commitment from all us lowish end donors!

I have an E6600 and a 8800GT at home, ran them for most of the winter holidays, upped my PPD by a couple 5-7k I guess, no exact figures. I shall boot it up again and check when I return home for Easter.

Not sure if the units 'count to 10' for bonus include non bonus ones in between. When I'm running these my output does fall to 6K or so, which is OK, I suppose.
Maybe the bonus fairy is trying to help :)
Seeing the units with premiums on fast turn around, especially new projects using A4 core etc, make it worthwhile to see it through some more. ie Run it on 24/7 while the cold weather lasts.

Non-bonus WUs are not counted.

You need to complete 10 WUs that would normally qualify for a QRB with the same UserName and Passkey before the bonus starts being awarded to that UserName and Passkey.

:egeek: Quite , Leonardo!
I wish someone had a bit of geek at PG, sometimes. Why my two cores are both flat out, yet one gets 10x times the ppd than the other [both on Gromacs A4] beats me, tbh.
On top of that, the best producer:
cpu2
Project number: 7001 (1-49-83)
Work unit: WW 1 ext/folded 395K
WU size: 50.3 KB
WU result:
Credit: 1867.74
Frames: 100
Core: GRO-A4
Server IP: 129.74.85.15
PPH (points per hour): 91.65
PPD (points per day): 2200
Avg time per step: 0:12:13
Bonus factor: 3.1129
Client.cfg: bigpackets=normal
Completed: 38%

has a week to spare on preferred deadline- yet the low producer:

CPU1
Project number: 8004 (70-8-43)
Work unit: p8004
WU size: 531.7 KB
WU result: ~ 1.1 MB
Credit: 197.90
Frames: 100
Core: GRO-A4
Server IP: 171.67.108.59
PPH (points per hour): 20.34
PPD (points per day): 488
Avg time per step: 0:05:50
Bonus factor: 2.2339
Client.cfg: bigpackets=normal, cpuusage=99
Completed: 36%

is running out of time, in a 10 hour run & will earn 88 pts credit .
[It's actually 6mins overtime right now, while PC not being otherwise used overnight]

Seeing that the penalty is 100 points versus versus a daily production of 7-8K possible - maybe it's just better to run one core on top of the GPU work, rather than struggle to justify the power usage [25% waste]?

One core is occupied solely and efficiently in processing a work unit through a Folding Client - its production is very good. The other core is sharing its resources among several demands, only one of which is Folding.

Yeah, you'd think that- but since I used the browser the slow project has pulled into date!
[It's early morning here,btw so previously- just folding]
I actually had two 7001 projects running together during normal daily use when I first set up this CPU,a week or so back -and no problem whatsoever.[Both earning approx 1700 ppd]
It looks as if the slow unit [8001] just doesn't make as good use of the core, as is possible [slipping back to a potential two runs of spoiled bonuses -worth only 180 ppd together]
That's a daily loss of 1500 ppd!
