I have two machines running, 1 30% of the time another 50% of the time, the computer that is 50% of the time is older, I noticed that on this machine it only downloads projects that take 14+ hours to complete, where as the other machine is 2-3 hours to complete a project, is that due to the processor speed, or is that downloading a diffrent kind of data file?

The figures suggest that number 2 is a ew machine and it hasn't had enough tasks completed yet to get all its fivures in order. This can take some time depending on the type of tasks being distributed.
