    I'm down to only four machines left on WCG, a dual Xeon E5645 at 3.4 GHz, a Core i7-2600K at 4.6 GHz, a Core i7-4770 non-K at stock and a Core i7-930 at 4.05 GHz. Total thread count is down to 48.

    That's still a very impressive collection--48 threads is awesome :D
    What sort of performance are you getting from the 4770?

    About the same as the 2600K at 4.6 GHz, maybe a touch more :eek:

    I fear I'm going to have to retire yet another cruncher this year, the power bill is a bit high (I also have four GTX 580s) and the 920's output is singling itself out.

    That's insane! :D
    If you wouldn't mind sending me some screenshots of it's PPD/runtime from the WCG Devices Page, I could add it to my PPD estimator :)

    And yes, the i7-920 is hardly efficient...I still have a 920@3.8GHz going and puts out well more heat than the 4.4GHz 2600k for far less output.

    My i7-930 averages around 4.8k ppd (peaks at 5.5-6k ppd) @ 3.2Ghz on Linux and the heat isn't too bad with the chip running in the mid 40's.

    That isn't that bad is it?

    No, not bad, for sure! I get about 4.5k PPD from mine (I suspect it would be better except my roommate games on it on quite a regular basis), so it's still entirely worth crunching on. But Stuttgart, my 2600k running Mint, gets about 9k PPD.

    Linux and the Intel systems does insanely well. The 2600k @ 4.4 running Mint does about 75% better than the 2700k @ 4.4 running Windows 7 x64. And the 3770k @ 3.6 running Mint beats the 3770k @ 4.0 running Windows by a sizable margin. The FX8350 seems to see much less of a benefit from Linux--it's about on par with the Windows i7s but still doing considerably worse than the Linux i7s. I dunno why, but it's been pretty consistent so far.

    I got silver for CEP2! Please use the badge or link in my sig to see it in my profile. I will not post a screenshot here to not waste TPU's hosting space . ;)

    Well done! :D

    No new badges because there still aren't any more projects (still), but now a quarter-century of runtime on FAAH:

    Gee, You've got silver in THE project that is the hardest to level from them all. Most are very lucky to sport even a bronze, yet You got a silver! Awesome!

    Um, for some reason, you think TPU is having a host space problem? Hmmm.

    Personally, I don't believe it. Hell, I think between all of us, sporting multiple motherboards and massive amounts of TB drives...It might slow page loads but, we could host TPU and still not have space issues!

    So, relax buddy. Post more pictures, tell'em I said it was ok. :D

    The Beta badges are definitely hard to get. Most of these, however, come from a 16core AMD Opteron system that I purchased last spring. WCG was doing some FAAH Beta Testing, and each FAAH Beta WU would take about 16 hours to complete (the Opty's had terrible per-thread performance). So each WU went a long way towards the badge. The same way with my Atom :)
