    I'm going to be down 2 machines for a couple of days while I reconfigure a few things, and wait for my DFI DK p55 board to get here.

    That DFI DK P55 motherboard is on the top my short list so please let us know what you think of it when you get it running. If I read between the lines correctly that you selected an Xeon processor so your experience with it sure would be interesting.:toast:

    would a Athlon II X2 240@ atleast 3ghz give better points then my 5kBE@3ghz? i think it would as it is faster clock for clock. Also don't tell me to get a quad as this would just be the stat of getting the spare parts to build another cruncher/folder

    The BE clocks without effort because it is unlocked :roll: all i had to do was set 14x214. I could have set it a 15x but wanted higher ram speed :D 3.2ghz is max for my 5kBE what do you think the x2 240 would be good for?

    Awesome, congratulations! I don't like the color of the bronze badges, providing me for a reason to try and get silver and gold :rolleyes:

    Thanks, an extra couple hundred PPD won't go amiss.

    Yep, definitely faster, but I'm not sure how much

    The Phenom IIs seem to be topping out at 3.9ghz, so I would say something between 3.6 and 3.9ghz

    So im still decing wether I should go P55+i7 860 or x58+i7 920...., only reason im upgrading my rig is to crunch:laugh:

    I would say 920 :D
    If you don't have access to a Microcenter and their epic CPU deals, it only costs about $75 more for the X58 setup. X58 i7s seem to generally overclock better, and require less voltage to do so, resulting in less heat and lower electricity usage ;)

    EDIT: And there's the possibility of i9 for X58 (but not for P55)

    Yeah MC is like a 30minute from my house, I know they have the 920 for 200$ and 860 for 229:cool:

    I really like the idea of less heat and lower electricity cost.

    So far im thinking EVGA x58 LE and 920 is sexy:pimp:, but the for some reason P55 FTW and 860 seem so much more appealing IDK why.
