Hi!

What would be the best way to instruct BOINC to use only 1 CPU/core on one particular host, but 2 (where available) on all others?

Try to use the separated settings for the computer.

I was wrong. You can set the different computer settings on the "General preferences" page.

Akos, come on.... let us see your computers. ;-) :-)

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. - Richard Feynman

Your google skills must be better than mine!! Little help? :-)

From BOINCstats I can see that Akos's credit production has roughly doubled in the last few weeks!! So either he has a few new hosts working for him or there's been some optimization to the apps!

Looking good.

My computers ( Brutus and Crassus ) are overclocked and they produced some aborted and invalid results. It isn't too nice...
I'm just trying to obtain new Thermaltake CL-W0121 coolers, but it isn't too easy. :(

I don't know if you can get them there but the SwiftTech water cooling kits are also very good.

Thanks. The CPU block will come from Swiftech. :)
The most important element of the liquid cooling system.

Glad to have helped. Swiftech makes great watercooling parts, that block should help you battle the summer heat or a nice overclock.

Well...sorry Akos but I gotta ask... is this one of your "super hosts"?
