Is there a limit of 4 running tasks max for the OpenCL GPU application?

I have a machine with 6 cards in it and only 4 will run.

Thanks

Nope, there is no limit, unless you have changed the setting in your project prefs, as there is an option to limit number of tasks.

No its set as default to unlimited.

I also have a cc_config.xml in my BOINC directory with <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> which I had to do for other projects.

Its only using 18% cpu while working so although its only a dual core cpu it should be fine I would have thought.

Does it work with other projects ?
I've checked your results, it looks like the manager is using only devices #0 - #3 while not running any work on #4 and #5.
