Set it around 50% and look at your processor load. Very pretty!!

if i set it at 50 it would take too long. set it at 100 because it only uses spare spu cycles, when another program needs your processor F@H lets it have the amount it needs

It's just that I've never seen a duty cycle produce such a perfect sinus waveform before.

Under advanced settings in FAH set CPU usage to half way. Then open Windows task managed and click on the perfomance tab. Watch the waveform in CPU usage history.
