    Agreed... I am in the market to replace me Q9550 here and keep looking at AMD but they just don't have anything that would really be an upgrade... So I think I'm going i7 860.

    I have been loving to build AMD systems for people again though, I like giving them business someone has to keep Nvidia and Intel in check. Although lately ATI has been giving it to Nvidia pretty hard without any lube.

    Quite some time since I looked last in here :ohwell:
    Saw my last milestone was 300k.
    I hope I can get to at least 450k before I have to put crunching on ice for five months.

    Before anything else, I wanna say congrats to MetalRacer for that WHOPPING Milestone he got today! :toast:

    For benefit of whoever was follwing this:
    Lot of variables affect your PPD. The other day I crunched for CP as a gift on his Crunchiversary, and found out a few things. Here's a screenie of the devices that day.
    [​IMG]

    Phenom and C2Q at same speed pretty much the same. But notice how that 3.2GHz cruncher isn't far off either. That's because that is a dedicated cruncher, whereas the other gets used for games and whatnot. Also, from experience my Q9550 can do 2800PPD on a good day, big difference.

    What I also found quite interesting is that when I wasn't crunching under my username there was still a backlog of over 1000PPD. So as you can see the validation process itself can be a big factor.
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    I can understand all that, I took an average of points gained over a period of about 20 days, non of the systems even have monitors hooked up to them, or keyboards or mice they are not touched for anything, 24/7 crunchers :cool:

    Not sure, I'll look into it a bit more, watch the scores a bit longer, check logs, take a gander, I know some pieces do not yield as good of points either.

    Because I'll serve in the military. And I can't let the PC run unsupervised/unmonitored for five months. I'll let it run when I'm on vacation occasionally.

    For people following this...

    Turns out my Phenom II 3.0 dual core has been having some issues and is having errors on some work here... Looks like the board doesn't like the ram so much, so I kicked it down a notch and popped the voltage up a bit, also unlocked the other 2 cores, see what she does now :)

    Looked good OCCT for an hour stable.

    Maybe now she will really kick out the points been running around *800PPD*, also notched up a e5200 *1000'ish PPD* and two of my Athlon 2 x3s *1500ish PPD* here a bit, should yield some more points. :D

    I'm comin for muh pie!
