Hello, all!

I want to be a part of SETI@Home, but the GPU use generates too much heat for my computer (Macbook Pro). Is there a way I can get SETI to send me units that only use CPU instead of my GPU? Thank you!

You account, project preferences, edit preferences, deselect the use of the ATI, NVIDIA and/or INTEL GPU, save changes.

The next time BOINC contacts the project, it will get those preferences.
