    May not be the actual cause since the shutdown seemed to be related to CEP2 only according to the first post in that thread?

    Will see if I can find out any more info....

    EDIT- apparently the error is affecting everyone but no resolution yet:

    Anyone remember that 8 core 25w intel avaton board I was watching? Anandtech did a great review that was an interesting read. I actually read the whole thing, not just the benchmarks I was interested. That is because the platform and functionality is quite interesting. Performance was hit and miss. In winrar and video encoding it did worse than amd's a8's, but in other tests like 7zip and some other multithreaded apps it was almost as fast as a stock 2500k. For crunching I have no way of knowing if it would get 2k or 4kppd. Price is a bit high for that uncertainty.

    That was my original thought. 25w 8 cores for what I estimated to be 4k ppd. What worries me is the benchmarks were hit and miss. Some multithreaded benchmarks got the performance of a 2kppd cpu while others matched a stock 2500k.

    How much would a mobile Sandybridge I7 with 4 core 8 threads cost? Also would it be worth it buying a 140$ motherboard to put it in?

    That would be interesting too. The platform is not suited for it, and I doubt it has any kind of substantial vrm. It is not a socketed cpu. Maybe through modded bios.

    Based on thermal footprint alone that thing probably could have overclocked like a beast with the right hardware.

    @Durvelle27 yep, when there are no points yet for the day, it shows the pie allocated to the last 10 people who joined the team in the order from the newest to the oldest member among the ten, giving each a 10% slice. So in a way, this is kind of a list of the 10 most newest team members. :)

    Mine is usually the opposite. If I have a pc problem it is usually something an absolute pain to troubleshoot and takes me a week+ to resolve. If a woman is having a problem, I can usually get that done and over with in a day or two.

    You sir sound like a psychological genius and need to share your wisdom with the rest of us ignorant men. I've been married 10 years and it's still challenging :roll:

    I don't think it has anything to do with me. I think I just found the right woman.
