It was a case of stuttering - not just bad performance, but I mean it made the game completely unplayable. When paused, the game runs fine.
No love lost, I've unpaused after finishing and already turned in my first GPU WU.
Reboot of both boxes eliminated the problem - they should be churning again
I did post that all my games play without a hitch while folding. I have found that not to be true. For the first time ever I have a game affected by folding. I noticed CoD 5 froze for a few seconds when starting a new map. Then it started doing it several times during a game. Turning folding off cures it. I stand corrected, I have a game that requires folding to be off.
Hopefully I can push 5000ppd
Feels good to be back into folding! ^5
I'm gonna be sticking F@H on every machine I come across with a C2D
