Why I get different CPID in different project?
For example, my CPID in SETI@home is 9451***************f9cc while in Einstein@home is 3234********************fbca.

The CPID is generated by the email address. If you're using a different email for each project, the CPID will be different as well.

Well, no. When you join another project, this new project will ALWAYS give you a new CPID.

Only by making sure that you use the same email address, and have at least one computer that has all of the projects attached (not necessarily asking for work), and you allow for a little time (up to 14 days), the CPIDs will join together again at the projects and the statistics sites.

Until you join a new project, that is. ;-)
