Hi everyone.
I'm new to this project. Until now I've crunched DNETC using official app available on distributed.net website.
Few days ago I've discovered that there is possible to use Android phone for this task thanks to BOINC and Moo Wrap.
So subsequently I've switched my computers to use BOINC but I don't know how to change default GPU API.
BOINC downloaded CUDA3.1 and I want to switch to OpenCL but can't find suitable option.
My computer is here https://moowrap.net/show_host_detail.php?hostid=401436 it has NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN Black and as I understood reading this forum OpenCL should be faster than CUDA.
So my question is how to set OpenCL instead of CUDA?
Thanks for help.

If you look at the top pc's you will see that even the top ones with Nvidia cards are running the Cuda units, the same ones you are.

There's currently no way to force CUDA vs. OpenCL but BOINC is supposed to send you both units and start preferring the one that's faster. Have you gotten any OpenCL units yet or are you still only getting CUDA ones?
