I have 8 cores and I box no more than 8 toons lately 6
should I assign a core per toon and would that be more beneficial
I recently made a change in eqclient
INI:
CPUAffinity1=-1
CPUAffinity2=-1
CPUAffinity3=-1
CPUAffinity4=-1
CPUAffinity5=-1
CPUAffinity6=-1
CPUAffinity7=-1
CPUAffinity8=-1
I was told that was ideal
what does cpuload do in relation to this setting and should I just unload it, not too clear on benefit of using or not using that plugin

Whether you are using IsBoxer matters for this conversation as well. If you have 8 cores and only box 6, the setting you have above is saying "let the OS manage it" and you don't need CPULoad. You do need CPUAffinity0=-1 though (and you don't need 8) since the count starts at 0 I believe. If you wanted them to be bound to a specific CPU, then you would do something like:
CPUAffinity0=0
CPUAffinity1=1
(etc)

But -1 is good and lets Windows handle it (which is perfectly fine).
