  • Start up BOINC
  • Set BOINC simple view>Tools>Computing Preferences to 90% CPU and 50% of spare drive capacity, set to always on.
  • Work as normal and if you get bottlenecks in memory, CPU or drive throttle CPU back from 90% to say 60%
  • Setting to always on means you will do more good BOINC work as it will work with you as long as it’s ‘CPU busy’ flag is not triggered.

For a standard upgrade from the client, be sure to run as administrator.
