    If you have an AMD processor installed and running the folding client then you'll want to be running SSE - as it folds about 30% faster than normal - and that means 30% more points! Gromacs cores allow SSE, Tinker cores do not.

    Edit the target line of the F@H shortcut in the startup menu to add the following:

    -forceasm -advmethods

    There needs to be a space after the end quote in your shortcut and then add the text. This will force SSE and mean you fold faster for more points. Wuuuuu ;)

    Hope this helps.

    Go to your Startup folder.
    You will find a F@H shortcut (which is *how* F@H starts every time you boot your machine)
    Right click on the shortcut and select properties.
    In the 'Target' line, add the flags as described and close the window.

    Next time your F@H starts you will see a SSE comment in the logs as opposed to a 3DNOW comment.

    This assumes you are running the console version. If you are running the graphical version then the client name is slightly different, but the principle remains the same.
    • Go to your C:&#092;Documents and Settings&#092;<your username or all users>&#092;Start Menu&#092;Programs&#092;Startup folder and right-click on the F@H shortcut that is there. Select Properties.
    • The target line on the Properties page will point to the F@H client. For example, in mine the path is: "C:&#092;Program Files&#092;Folding@Home&#092;FAH3.25-Console-beta.exe"
    • The " marks in the above line are in the target line already.
    • At the end of the target line and immediately after the second " mark, type a single space and then add the following text
    • -local -advmethods -forceasm
    • The whole target line shoudl now look something like this:
    • "C:&#092;Program Files&#092;Folding@Home&#092;FAH3.25-Console-beta.exe" -local -advmethods -forceasm
    • Now click Apply and finish the shortcut.
    • To check that this runs properly just go to your F@H console client and close the window (or pause folding first then quit of on the graphical client.
    • Now click on the shortcut you edited to F@H and the F@H client will load up. If you watch the logs as it benchmarks and starts folding again you will see the words &#39;SSE Boost&#39; - this means you are now folding faster. If you see &#39;3D Now&#39; you have done something wrong&#33;

    Turning on the SSE capability of your CPU means that you fold about 30% faster than normal.

    Hope this helps you&#33;

    Did exactly what you&#39;ve said: "C:&#092;Program Files&#092;Folding@Home&#092;winFAH.exe" -local -advmethods -forceasm

    I checked twice after that and I have: Extra 3DNow boost OK.
