Umm, yeah so I don't know if I missed something or what, but apparently there is a new version of the F@H Client. Just in case I'm not the only one behind the curve:

I installed it on my girlfriends laptop and the interface was different, but I thought it was just another style for windows 8...

I took it off because even though its an "i7" (I use quotes because a mobile i7 is nothing compared to a desktop one) and has some of the best AMD gfx outside of a pure gaming laptop, it was still only putting out like 3000ppd and the fans were spinning much louder than I've ever heard. I'll stick with desktop folding...

If points are coming in strong, is there reason to update?

Nah, I don't think it's anything serious. Maybe something to do when/if you happen to catch a WU finishing maybe take a few minutes to install it.

I've had it installed for about a week now. I don't see any difference or improvement in my PPD. [shrugs]

I would like to find any special Extra Client Options or Extra Core Options that would boost CPU output, though with an Athlon II X4 640, I wonder if they'd be worthwhile.

EDIT: Yup. Found one. Configure -> Slots tab -> CPU -> Slot options: advanced. Gave me roughly a 20% boost in weekly points. :D
