I did some of this a while ago, but I have some questions:

Will it make my temperatures jump up? I suppose I could set it's affinity to 1 or 2 cores.

I've got an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, and it sits around 28C at ~5% useage, and up to about 40 at 100% with 4 instances of prime 95 running for half an hour, on stock cooling.

Hmm, this is interesting I must say. Been looking at these kinds of projects for a long time. The guys over at hak5.org were in on this quite a while ago (dunno if they still are mind...). Its something Ive wanted to do... maybe now is the time to do it. I have 5 CPUs at my disposal - 3 machines (two are dual core). The dualies are only ever using half their potential and the second cores are usually next to 0%, so theres a full 2 CPUs that can be used right there if this software supports it? And this wont show up on admin logs as "OMFG WTF BBQ P0RNZ@!!:icon_confused.gif" will it? as one of the machines in question is my work rig pp_smiley11.gif

it only uses spare processes.. eg.. it runs on the lowest priority, unless you set it to do differently.

Hey I just downloaded it and joined the pp team. I figure i'll just put it to max when i'm at classes and stuff. Not like I'm using it then anyway.

Also on a side note, pretty crazy how at 100% cpu power it would take my computer 13 days to to finish the WU.
