Hi all, i have three 8800gt's in my case and is running S@H.
In the boinc manager i can see three separate threads of cuda running but some is not moving. Also, the temperature for the graphics cards are different. one is at low 90C's the other two in mid 70C's.
So I'm assuming that only one of them is doing a lot of work while the other two isn't doing much work.
Why is that? is that because the other two GPU isn't getting work fed to them fast enough by the CPU? If so, is there a way to fix that?

I wonder if you have the correct number of GPUs noted in your app info

Then there wouldn't be "three separate threads of cuda running."
