    What do you have crunching? Pie isn't exactly easy to get. I have both systems in my system specs crunching 24/7(except for the occasional 2-3 hour gaming session acouple times a week on the 2600k system) and the best I've gotten is 12th. To get pie, you basically need atleast three I7 systems crunching 24/7, and even then, you probably wouldn't get pie consistantly.

    Being consistent is much more important than getting pie. The work we do thru crunching is important and every work unit that is completed assists researchers in finding solutions to cure disease, etc.

    Stick with it and contribute within your means and you will see how far you can go. :)

    I may not always be able to contribute like I do now but I will continue crunching regardless of how many points I can generate in a day. :toast:

    Exactly, every little bit helps. Who knows, maybe it will be your system that actually does the WU that leads to a cure for cancer. :)

    It usually takes a new BOINC install about 4 days to ramp up to full capacity (the point at which WUs are being validated as fast as they're submitted). So you should start doing pretty well soon :toast:
    I'd say you should get 3.5-4.5k PPD easy, maybe a tad more :toast:
    Agreed. A pair of i7 systems and a pair of Core 2 Duos was enough to bounce me in and out of daily pie. It's going to take the third i7 to get daily pie. This just means that we have a competitive team here :toast:
    You should have no issue doing top-30 consistently :toast:
    That it is. Even a Core 2 Duo doing just 1k PPD will still do 350k+ points over the course of the year...which is equal to two months of crunching on even an OCed i7. Every bit very much matters (although running ancient systems like a Pentium 4 probably isn't worth the electricity usage).

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My list of crunchers is in my sig. If one goes down it will probably knock me out of the pis mode. Thats how close competition is here. But it also make us want to do more which really helps the cause which is the main focus. :toast: Every little bit helps.

    Hell even right now today I am on the outside of pie looking in (14th place).

    We'll have to see about that tomorrow...I'm getting a bit tired of cement. Banana would be far more palatable.

    nearly 9k points from the FX-6100 rig and 9hrs run time from yesterday on the Opty bumped me up quite a bit.

    You're getting pretty good at getting cement pie :toast:

    With three i7s and 2 C2Ds running 24/7, I'd hope so :toast:
    With the i7-920 that should bump me up to more palatable pie flavors.

    If you can keep me at cement pie with ~20-21k PPD, then I wish you the best of luck. I'll take lower pie if it means that the Team has added more HW :toast:

    LOL I have another build in the works. Not sure if it's going to happen quickly or not. But the board is being shipped tomorrow. I may just end up with a set of twin crunchers.

    Not sure yet but It may be another x2 unlocked to x4. I also have a lead on a 1100T also.
