Both FAH and projects running under BOINC will be fighting for the left-over CPU cycles, so I would think so.

If you have a multi-core computer you can give each a certain number of cores that add up to the whole number. I think they will run fine in this case.
On single cores or with a sum of associated cores higher than the physical one it will lead to problems.
You can run the GPU-Client of FAH besides BOINC, it will take a bit CPU as well, but in this case a small reduction is afaik sufficient.
