This guide is for setting up multiple GPU's along with using WinAFC to automatically set the affinity and priority as each new Work Unit is downloaded and started. I use WinAFC and not Lasso because I set the prioriteis and affinity for the VMware with command lines in the .vmx file that precludes the need for Lasso to do that. I am using Windows 7 so the pathways to some of the files may be a little different with XP and Vista.

Step 1:

First you must have your desktop extended to to all the GPU's in Vista and Windows 7. My understanding is that with XP you do not have to do this step. But for XP you do need to enable the multiple display mode in the display settings. Also, if you are using the 191.07 or newer drivers and have SLI enabled you do not have to use dummy plugs or extend the desktop for Vista and 7. I still use the bridge so I am not sure if SLI without the bridge will work. I do get more PPD with SLI disabled and use dummy plugs.

 
To extend the desktop: have your monitor connected to the primary port on the primary video card. Then install a dummy plug on the primary connector of each subsequent video card. Note: if you have a dual GPU card, ie; a 9800 GX2 or a GTX 295 you must have a dummy plug on all the video connectors on all the cards. One dummy plug for each GPU, except for the connector the monitor is attached to of course. Use this link for the instructions on making a dummy plug. Note: you actually only have to jump pin 1 and 6 with one resistor for it to work. The ones all the way on the right in the bottom picture. [link=http://www.overclock.net/overclock-net-folding-home-team/384733-30-second-dummy-plug.html]http://www.overclock.net/...second-dummy-plug.html[/link] . Also you can use up to a 100 ohm resistor. Then right click on your desktop and then left click on Personalize(this is what Windows 7 has), then in the bottom left click on display, then on left upper side click on change display settings, then click detect. You should see your primary or real monitor listed and smaller generic monitors listed that are the dummy plugs. Left click on the picture of each monitor and make sure that it says extend desktop to this display for each of the monitors. You will know they are when the picture of the monitor is blue and not grey. If they are not extended, drop that box down, click on extend desktop to this display and then click apply. You have to do this one at a time for each monitor. Make sure you keep the real monitor as the primary monitor. DO NOT check mark the box that says make this my main display for the generic monitors/dummy plugs. You will lose your display image and it will go black.

Step 2:

Create a new folder and name it GPU for now. You can put it on your desktop or your primary or secondary hard drive, if you have one. You want the file path short, ie; C:\GPU or D:\GPU. I put mine on the secondary hard drive. That way if you want to reinstall or install a new OS you do not lose the folding folders. All you have to doe is to create new shortcuts to the
folding@home.exe files, the file with colored bubbles. Note: If you do not have secondary hard drive and are going to reinstall or install a new OS, you can copy your folding folders to a USB storage drive and then copy them back to your system after you install the OS and create the new shortcuts at that time.

Step 3:

Download the NVIDA GPU client for Windows from this link to the EVGA website,
[link=http://www.evga.com/folding/download.asp%3C/a%3E%3C/U%3E%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E]http://www.evga.com/foldi...%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E[/link] , click on where it says HERE. Go ahead and install it. IMPORTANT: do not start the client after you have installed it and also make sure it did not install a shortcut in the startup folder. To check, click on Start>All Programs>Startup. If it did, delete it by right clicking on it and left clicking delete.

Step 4:

Navigate to the folder where the program was installed, which will be on your C: >Program Files (x86)>Folding@home. There are two files you are going to copy to the folder you made in Step 2. The file with the trademark F@H colored bubbles and one that is named viewer. I do not think you really need the viewer file, it is the application that lets you see the protein folding and trust me you do not want to open it and watch. It's pretty to look at but it will kill your PPD production and could possiblly crash your computer. This feature has been notoriously unstable since day one and even Stanford still recommends not using it. After you have done that you need to enable View Hidden folders. Go to Start>Control Panel>Folder Options. Click on the View tab, seven lines down it says Show hidden files, folders and drives. Click the dot to the left of it and then click Apply. Now, navigate to C:>Users>Main>AppData>Roaming>Folding@home-gpu. For XP it is C:\Documents and settings\Administrator(or whatever the name of your computer is)\Application Data\Folding@home-gpu. There are two files in this folder you want to copy to the folder you created in Step 2, cudart.dll and data_nv. The data_nv file is not necessary but will not hurt by putting in your folder. Once you have those files copied to your folder you can reverse the Folder Option to not show hidden files if you like.

Step 5:

Download WinAFC from this link,
[link=http://sourceforge.net/projects/affinitychanger/%3C/a%3E%3C/U%3E%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E]http://sourceforge.net/pr...%3C/font%3E%3C/font%3E[/link] and save it to where ever you save files to on your computer. Now, open this folder all the way till it is showing all the files that are in it. Copy all these files and put them in the GPU folder along with the Folding@home files you put in it from Steps 2, 3 and 4.

Step 6:

Now, make a copy of the folder you created so that you have one folder for each GPU you are going to fold on. I named them GPU1, GPU2 and so on if you have more GPU's.

Step 7:

Open each GPU folder one at a time and right click on the
folding@home.exe file(the one with the pretty colored bubbles), click on "Send to" and then "Desktop". This will create a shortcut for each .exe file that you can use to start each client individually. Then rename each shortcut as you create them to corrospond to the GPU folders, ie; folder GPU1 has shortcut named GPU1 and so on. I would reccomend doing this one at a time to avoid mixing them up. I do this, along with rearranging the foling@home icons in the task bar to be in numerical order, so if I have problems with one of the clients while it is running, I know immediately which one it is.

Step 8:

While you are in folder GPU1, create a shortcut for the WinAFC file(the one that is four small colored squares making one larger sqaure) just like you did for the
folding@home.exe files in Step 7. You only need to do this once, ie; only make one shortcut for WinAFC.

Step 9:

Time to startup the programs one by one and configure them. First, double click the WinAFC shortcut to start it and let it run. A window will open up, run and then it will reach a point where it stops and gives a message in yellow. Once it has reached this point, close the window.

Step 10:

Now open the first GPU folder. We will edit the WinAFC file first. Open the file that says: "affinityinput". It should automatically open with Notepad. At the end of the second paragraph it says: TestMode = 1, change the 1 to a 0. Now scroll down to where the line looks like this:

##################################################
## Application Profile lines <(add the command lines here)
##################################################

and paste the appropriate command lines in the above section so it looks like this:

##################################################
## Application Profile lines
*\FahCore_11.exe := PAIR0+PAIR1+PAIR2+PAIR3 [priority=High]
*\FahCore_14.exe := PAIR0+PAIR1+PAIR2+PAIR3 [priority=High]
##################################################

Note: the above setup for an i7. Use the appropriate command lines below for your processor: 
 

For Dual core processors use this command:

*\FahCore_11.exe := PAIR0 [priority=High]
*\FahCore_14.exe := PAIR0 [priority=High] 

For Quad core processors use this command:

*\FahCore_11.exe := PAIR0+PAIR1 [priority=High]
*\FahCore_14.exe := PAIR0+PAIR1 [priority=High]

For i7 processors use this command:

*\FahCore_11.exe := PAIR0+PAIR1+PAIR2+PAIR3 [priority=High]
*\FahCore_14.exe := PAIR0+PAIR1+PAIR2+PAIR3 [priority=High] 

Note: where it says [prority=HIGH], you can change it so it will automatically set the priority to whatever you want, ie; [prioity=NORMAL] or what ever priority level you want. I leave it at HIGH. Win AFC cannot set the priority to Realtime. The important thing is to have the priority set higher than your VMware which should be set at idle or low. Change the priorities around if you like to find the setting that works best and gives you the most PPD. I believe WinAFC has to be stopped to edit the file.

Save the changes and close the file. Repeat this step for the "affinityinput" file in each GPU folder. 

Step 11: 

Now we will start up and configure each GPU client one at a time. Double click your shortcut for GPU1, the little bubble icon should appear in the task bar at he bottom right of your screen and a window should open up. In this first tab that is labeled "User", type in your User(folding) name, Team number and Passkey in the appropriate lines. Then click on the "Connection" tab and check mark the box in front of "Allow receipt of work assignments and return of results greater than 10MB in size". Now click on the "Advanced" tab, click the dot next to "Core Priority:" that says "Slightly higher". Check mark the box that says "Do NOT lock cores to specific CPU". In line at the bottom that says "Additional Client Parameters" we will add the GPU flags and in the box below that set the Machine ID. Paste the appropriate line for each GPU client. By adding the flags here you do not have to modify the shortcut properties, ie; the target path line in the shortcut properties window. 

For GPU1:

-gpu 0 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods

make this Machine ID 1 and click OK. 

For GPU2:

-gpu 1 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods

make this Machine ID2 and click OK. 

and so on for each GPU client with the following flag lines: 

-gpu 2 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods (make this Machine ID 3)
-gpu 3 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods (make this Machine ID 4)
-gpu 4 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods (make this Machine ID 5)
-gpu 5 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods (make this Machine ID 6) 

There is also a flag, -verbosity 9, you can add to each line that creates more detailed fahlogs as the clients run. Example: -gpu 0 -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -advmethods -verbosity 9

You get the idea. If you have more than 6 GPU's, just change the -gpu number to the next consecutive number and then use the next consecutive Machine ID number. You can use any Machine ID number combination you want AS LONG AS
none of the GPU clients on the same computer have the same Machine ID number. You do not have to worry about Machine ID number conflicts with VMware since they run as there own separate entities. 

NOTE: As you do this, once you have configured the GPU client, you need to stop the client and restart it for the configuration to be accepted. So as you configure each client, put your cursor on the bubble icon in the task bar, right click and then left click on "Quit". Repeat this step for each GPU client one at a time.

You have now setup and configured all your GPU software. 

Step 12: 

Now start your GPU clients one at a time. As the icons appear in the task bar, right click on them and then left click on "Configure" and open each of the tabs just ot make sure they have configured the way you set them up. 

Step 13: 

Once you have all the GPU clients running, double click your WinAFC shortcut and start it up. When the window opens and runs you should see two entry lines for each fahcore, one that shows the CPU core setting and one that shows the priority setting. Once that is done running make sure that window is the currently viewed window and press Ctrl and C at the same time and it will minimize to the task bar and be out of the way. 

Step 14: 

Now to setup Fahmon to see the GPU clients. Open Fahmon, right click in the white area of the window and click on "Add a new client". In the first line type in the name you want for that particular GPU client. In the second line, click on the box with the three dots in it next to line that says "location" and navigate to that particular GPU folder and then click "OK". Repeat this step for each GPU client. The process is nearly identical for HFM.NET also.

You are done. Hopefully there are no problems and you can sit back and watch your computer produce mass PPD's. 

CREDITS:

Although I developed my own method of setting up all the folding clients in my own way, I want to give full credit to _Nite_ on the EVGA folding@home forum for the WinAFC portion of this guide. I would not have been able to obtain the GPU PPD I produce without that part.

    Horvat. I need a little bit of help. I tried to set up my second GPU to fold. I tried to install it twice. No go I don't know what Im doing Wrong. The WinAFC shows only core 11 in progress but nothing on 14. The fahmon snows progress on 285 but the second client keeps downloading the WU but as soon it gets going somewhere between the lines It says

    Re:Multi GPU guide with WinFC 2009/11/09 18:09:38 (permalink)
    The WinAFC will only read the core that is running at the time you start WinAFC. Which right now the fahcore_11 is what is running, those are the core 1.19. The fahcore_14 is the core 1.25 and 1.26. When one of those WU 's is downloaded WinAFC will detect it and automatically set the priority and the affinity. No problems there.

    Now for the Unsatble Machine. Do you have the card OC'd? If so you only need to OC the shaders and if it is to high you will get errors. If your card is OC'd keep the gpu and the memory at stock, unlink the core and shaders if you are using Precison and just turn the shaders up one notch. Repeat this process until you get errors and then turn the shader back down one notch. With the dummy plug do you have SLI disabled? If not disable it and turn PhysX off while you're at it. I never use it for folding. If that is the case, after you turn SLI and PhysX off go into the folding folder and delete the work folder, the queue.dat and the unitinfo files then restart the client. Deleting those three items will reset the client without deleting the client configuration.

    Ok, first, thanks a lot for you time.
    I have to cards on the rig Im folding with. (the 1st in the sig) first card it 285 SC OC to 1685/1566/1296 folds beautifuly 
    second card Is gts 250 SC at stock settings - 770/1890/1123.

    Ah Ha. Two different models of cards. That splains it Lucy. Ok, do you have the 191.07 driver? If not install it. Second, once yo have done that delete the work folder, the queeue.dat and unitinfo files and the fahcore_11 and fahcore_14 files and restart the client. Since the 250 has a high shader setting already leave it at stock settings and just turn the fan up manually to keep the heat down. Let me know what happens. Getting two different series of cards to fold on one machine can be difficult.

    Thanks man, good to know.
    Listen I dont want to sound all paranoid and stuff. But Ive heard some really bad things about 191.07 driver, and it's conflicts with NF200 chip Mobos/GPUs. I just want to know what do you think about It. Im sure you.ve read Mikotan's thread about it. So I just feel a littlle Uneasy about it. Is there any other driver you'd recommend. Or you think Id be fine installing .07
    Thanks. :)

    I have not read that thread, please post a link to it. I have no problem with the 191.07 drivers and I have it on all my Rigs. Refer to my sig. I have two X58 boards, a G41 and what ever a Dell Vostro is, I think it is a G33.

    it only affect the NF200 chipset. try another driver higher than 191.07 on the E759 mobo, until we know what is the issue with 191.07 driver.

    FYI , I am using 191.07 on a non-NF200 chipset mobo with mixed cards.. without sli .. just dummy plugs and download the new fahcore 11 and 14 for the mixed card folding ..

    good Luck

    Just go to GPU section of the forum, 200 series, there quite a few posts about this particular set of drivers. Both my motherboards got nf200 chip.
    (If Im not mistaken 790i has nf200 chip on board.)  Unfortunatly the thread I refered to was on the old forum, And linking those sometimes just dont work.

    Thanks. :)

    I had problems with the 192.07 drivers they would crash my GTX 275's under certain conditions, like trying to remove aero themes to gain system resources. Crash.... system responsiveness to 50%... display into slow motion, then couldn't reenable aero until display drivers were removed and re-applyed. I switched to 186 drivers. But all my cards are matched...seems you need 192.07 to use mis-matched cards on your display.

    Thanks man. Useful Info.
       Just got home. Ill have to try few Drv before jumping in. So itll take some time. But Im definitely staying away from 191.07  I might even wait till Nvidia comes up with somth better. And just run CPU/285 for now. I know my ppd would be better with 2 gpus but Im not risking a rig which i know I can be sure 200% now. (Been folding 24/7 on it  for 5 days straight now) :)

    @ Horvat, thanks again for a great guide. :) was of great help.  Its just drivers now.

    I did use the 192.07 successfully for quite awhile they do run the multi Gpu's as in Horvats Guide. My problems with the 192.07 were not related to GPU folding. I think Most people are using the Latest drivers, I just Got PO'd and switched. If I didnt recreate the situation that made them Crash the cards, I would still be using them. They do work with the Guide.

    The only thing newer than the 191.07 driver is that 195.39 beta driver and I am not putting that on my system until I rebuild it.

    Im talking about the "latest Release drivers" 192.07.
    I agree with Barnhardt they work fine with Folding. They have Problems With at least 1 win 7 display function, I know that for a fact. But no one would probably stumble on to it Like I did. I made sure by recreating it 2 more times ,It is that latest release driver. I wont say what it is Unless you want to Test it and Likely loose your Bigadv WU. requires a safe boot to get the Desktop display Back to normal.

    There is no 192.07, it is the current 191.07 and the 195.39 beta. I just checked NVIDIA's website.

      Guys.  Idid Update to a new driver. 195.xx but still no go. (I did delete files you've mentioned) And then nothing Again that Unstable Machine Bull. What to do? Do you think It might be the card. Or I might have to up my North Bridge voltage a bit (thinkin that I have two cards running full capacity.) mine is at 1.55 now.
    Thank you.
