Ok thanks, I will waiting for the next version
The next version 1.57 is on line.
Questions / Re: ATI GPU status not shown

:) Hi everybody,

I've four computer at home, three with windows xp pro x64 sp2 (English MUI Spaniard)
& one laptop with xp pro x86 sp3 (Spaniard).

two computer with xp pro x64 sp2 & GPU NVIDIA show correct GPU boxes and
temperature too, [AMD Athlon64 & AMD Athlon64 x2].

one computer with xp pro x64 sp2 & GPU ATI the squares for the GPU is not shown
(in this computer is shown only one temperature with four cores working in BOINC and the
temperature of the cores is absolutely the same) [AMD Phenon64 x4].  :(

laptop with xp pro x86 sp3 & GPU ATI, same as above with the GPU   ????????? [AMD Turion64].  :(

TTrottle 1.56 x64 in the three computers with XP x64 and 
TTrottle 1.57 x86 in XP x86 laptop installed (and working in the temperature Trottle).

Cheers / Corsair

As far as I know the AMD processor only has one temperature sensor for all cores, so with AMD all cores report the same temperature.
At the moment the  AMD/ATI GPU is not supported, because as far as I know this GPU is not yet used in any BOINC project I know of.
But I will add support for it, if I have some users who actually use the AMD/ATI GPU and can do some testing. I will get one myself next week so I can do some testing as well.
"Auto active" is the only way to start things.
I have found the problem, it was as I expected. In the next release, probably early next week, this problem will be resolved.
And I expect a French version in a couple of weeks as well.

It is necessary that have boinc to run TThrottle ? because i just want runthis software to reduce the temperature of my processor.
If i desactivate "auto active",TThrottle rude my prcessor temperature ?
I will post the log as soon as possible
Frankly I never tested it on a computer that did not have BOINC installed for a while.
I will do that, it should work without BOINC, but I probably forgot something, because I did no testing.

I have installed tthrottle because to control my CPU temperature.
In the first tab "Program" I put in "Set Core" : 60
When I activate "auto active" 10 second after I have an error message : "Un argument non valide a été détecté" and after each second a have the same error message and i must kill the process to stop TThrottle.
I can't see the logfile so.
What is the solution
(I have an AMD thurion)

PS : Sorry for my english I'm french

Try to deactivate "auto active" and try the logging tab.
Copy the logging tab and send it to me.

If you can't copy the TThrottle log. Copy the first part of the BOINC log and also the part that shows the projects that are running.
And tell me if you are running as user or administrator.

Ok, thats on my list: Add GPU colors.
I am in the process of translating TThrottle into Dutch an French so if you are interested. ::)
This is changed in the upcoming version 1.56 as requested.
Expect the new version this week.
I changed the detection of the BOINC directory.
In the upcoming version, the directory is scanned every 15 cycles = 15 minutes in the default setting.
If TThrottle goes below 15% it assumes it lost something and the detection cycle goes to < 1 Minute that should hopefully do it.
The new version 1.56 should come out this week. ;D
Done: V 1.56
Done: V 1.56
Wish List / Re: Fan 'control'

I run TThrottle on a laptop and it works very well. When it sits idle, the temperature stays steady, but when I work on it there are times the fan revs up. Then TThrottle increases the % run time of the applications and the fan naturally stays on high speed.

I would like the laptop to stay with medium fan speed, as the small fan is quite noisy on high speed. The thing that I miss in TThrottle is some way of controlling the fan speed.

The idea would be that the user can specify a range (min and max) for the fan RPM. The primary goal of TThrottle would be to adjust the run time to reach this fan speed. The secondary goal (once the desired fan speed is reached) would be to control the temperature of the CPU.

Thank you,
This is one thing that is on my to look into list. It is probably highly dependent on the hardware and specific to a machine.
But I haven't dug in deep enough to know the exact problems. It should be doable and would be a nice addition I will try to do it, when I have the time.....

Another quick one - it would be useful to have the current GPU and CPU temperature limit rendered as a colored horizontal bar on the graph.


Ok Iso,

Added to the list.

I would like to be able to store two sets of TThrottle temperature limit settings:
- one for "normal operation" (i.e. run as fast as you can as long as you don't melt my CPU/GPU),
- one for "quiet operation" (i.e. I am sat at my PC working and don't want my GPU fan distracting me by running at 100% speed, but 60% is OK).

If you could fast select which of these is active using the tray icon right click menu it would also be brilliant =)

Thanks for the app b.t.w. - very useful.
Ok Iso,

Added to my to do list

I will see if that is possible, will put it on my to do list.
