Orthos / Q6600 question
I tried running orthos for a bit last night in vista with the quad core gadget thingy also running and noticed that while running core's 1 and 2 where being stressed but 3 and 4 where not. Does it not work with quads?

Re: Orthos / Q6600 question
you have to run 2 instances and change the affinity of the program to cores 1 & 2 and cores 3 & 4.

you right click on the process under the task manager to set the affinity just in case you didn't know

Thanks I just figured that out :) Also downloaded the newest ver of prime95, it supports quads.

Yes, much more stress on the CPU. If it will pass Prime, it will pass anything.
