When you say it can use 100% of your cpu, does it use 100% of your gpu,ram etc too?

No unless you're running CPU and GPU clients at the same time.

CPU client utilizes CPU to its limit with some memory...

Well you'd need to download and setup different client for either CPU or GPU.

It doesn't comes as a single installable file.

This guide explains how to setup the CPU client but times have changed dramatically and nowdays ppl tend to use GPUs more than CPUs....

Set it up anyway. At the end of the day...as much as people like to brag about their uber folding farms....even yr P4 is gonna contribute to the whole point behind folding.

Set it up and learn what to do when you get bored, in preparation for an uber folder rig :)
