    I have never used this, but I will look into it.

    Edit: After seeing some examples it looks promising. Looks. I think it won't look as good however.

    There's a PropertyGrid on the left of Network Tools 2.

    Edit: Yeah, you'd have to have detailed output which would warrant a large expanding section of the GUI for results.

    Thanks!
    Please check out the OP and see the new version that PVTCaboose1337 wrote, it's far cleaner and neater than the original console version that I wrote :cool: ;)

    Ok. Been crunching now for a while at stock on my i5 750. My settings are 100% cpu usage, with 80% cpu time. This is my main rig, so do spend a fair bit of time surfing the net, with some very light gaming. My host average has now levelled out at about 1380.

    Hope this helps.

    EDIT: I'm now taking this rig offline to upgrade the cooling, then will look at ocing.

    Here's a screen shot of my rig averages. Still running stock clock on it. The dip is when I changed cooling.

    Hope it helps.

    [Ion], you told me you posted this on XS? Can I have the link to the thread or whatnot so I can see the feedback?

    I had an idea: why not just allow users to input a duration? So I added it, and it is attached. I also made sure the tab order is good and a note about CPU intensive applications.

    Could I recommend more descriptive names?

    Ion's: PPD Console Calculator
    PVTCaboose1337's: PPD GUI Calculator
    FordGT90Concept's: PPD GUI Benchmark

    Drop the WCG because all three do BOINC and WCG. All three do estimations but achieve it differently: Calculator and Benchmark are more descriptive in how it reaches that conclusion. GUI/Console tells users how it is operated (distinguishes between Ion's and PVTCaboose1337's).

    I agree the names are a bit off. I think estimator is a good name for mine, yours is definitely a benchmark, and Ion's is just out of date and should die off (no offense Ion).

    Ion's can work without .NET Framework, no? That's an advantage ours do not share. He could relatively easily change the code to work on Linux even.

    Sure, I can totally update the OP for clarification between the versions.

    I agree, mine is rather out of date, but I'm going to keep it around for the reason FordGT90Concept outlined below (your's and Ford's both require .NET, but mine doesn't).
    I'll try to get it working on Linux as soon as I get a Linux test box up, or maybe I'll just run an Ubuntu VM on my desktop.

    PVTCaboose1337 and I could probably merge ours--one app for calculating and benchmarking.

    We are currently in the process of merging the two apps. FordGT90Concept is merging the code in C#. This program is now in 3 different languages!

    EDIT: Languages = Programming, not spoken.

    Glad to say that FordGT90Concept, [Ion] and myself have finished the program and made something very good.

    Unfortunately what FordGT90Concept has yet to realize is that he will have to update the calculator everytime [Ion] has a new processor to add. HAHAHA! Maybe we will phase out my part of the program soon. Who knows.
     
    AlienIsGOD and [Ion] say thanks.
