    You seem to be...umm...missing some bits there :p

    Are you going to WC and OC this and set it up for SMP alongside the Opty setup?

    Gonna load Ubuntu 10.10 and see what kind of PPD I can coax out of her. May just end up running WCG after the initial findings.

    Just gonna WC the CPU. Going for max SMP output, so no GPU's except an ATI X300 for video output.

    Having you back on the WCG team would be an honor. I'm getting right at 4.5k PPD from my 860 @ 3.4GHz powering two GTX460s, so if you can get ~3.8GHz and aren't running any GPUs you should get 5k PPD easy :toast:

    i am curious to see what that chip will do for smp as I have one also and never tried it on that. just crunching on it for now.

    whats the loop made of? so I can get an idea what the temps are at the speed when you get her going. I plan to wc mine soon and I can have an idea what I might get.

    I like the can of WD-40 just chillin' out behind the test bench. Would be nice to see it on WCG someday, as the one I bought from you does ~4.5K PPD usually. :)

    Well, I stopped part way thru, as I was awaiting the Fillport and Kill Coil that arrived yesterday. Started cutting tubing & routing lines last night. Should have it up and running tonight or tomorrow. Will post some pics later tonight of the progress.

    If i may add, you can use just the Black ice rad. Or the swiftech if you don't have any other choice for the res. The heat amount your cpu block can transfer to the water per second is the limiting factor here.

    I have the same rads, and using an ek supreme hf, 3x mcw60 and a mcp355, they can keep cool (gpu at 43-44c and cpu at high 50s) 3 gtx 460 and a 4,41 ghz i7 970 at 1,45v.

    That is where my "overkill" argument came from...

    Got it stable @ 4.1Ghz, but i need to cut back on vcore due to the heat build-up. Gonna try for 4.2Ghz now that I found my sweet spot.

    Edit: Failed @ 4.2Ghz, so focusing on optimizing 4.1 now.
