    i have no idea of what to expect so right now i am thinking someplace around 2k maybe. Before i got alittle over 1k with only the 5kBE@3ghz and P4HT@3.8ghz crunching 24/7
    but now i have
    X2 240@3.6ghz
    E1500@2.9ghz(forgot that i clocked it higher)
    P4HT@3.94ghz(got it to clock alittle higher too :D)
    those are just the 24/7 rigs all the others are just randoms (on most of the day get shut off some nights)

    Sounds like a good upgrade, I'd expect ~2500 with what you have listed above + the other random rigs

    that wouldn't be too bad. When i get my main rig running (it will be using the X2 240) i will have the 5kBE crunching again and i am already making plans to build another rig around the X2 4200+ (it clocks to 3.1ghz for 24/7 crunching):p if the 4200 didn't clock so good i wouldn't bother with it but IMO i find it worth building yet another rig..(i am running out of space for rigs :banghead:)


    BTW how is this possible (Bonic benchmarks)

    Celeron E1500@2.9ghz (7 64bit)
    2707 floating point MIPS(Whetstone)
    8415 interger MIPS(Dhrystone)

    X2 240@3.6ghz (XP 32bit)
    3652 floating point MIPS(Whetstone)
    8141 interger MIPS(Dhrystone)


    the lower clocked Celeron does better at the Dhrystone then the X2 even with a 700mhz higher clock :wtf: but what one has a bigger impact on PPD?

    Whetstone has a much bigger impact on PPD; Intel CPUs tend to do substantially better on Dhrystone but it has little impact on PPD.

    I still have plenty of space for rigs, but no way to power them (I do have outlets, but my parents complain about the electricity usage, hence I only leave 1 computer on).

    I have 1 wall/side of my room dedicated to my rigs. I still have room for more shelves/desk but i don't want to add more stuff as it starts to look cluttered..BTW i have 3 outlets that aren't being used :p and my room is ran on 2 circuits/breakers of its own(isn't shared with any other part of the house) so i don't have to worry too much about overloading them.

    Awesome Hammer, it looks like a lot of us are having good days recently (I've had my best 2 in the past 3 days)

    I've been doing poor lately for two reasons.

    1 - have my QX9650 crunching for Jr.
    2 - been benching a lot lately. This damn CPU, where did it come from. I did 3D benchmarks for 3.5 hours @ 4620MHz without one crash.
    So yeah, however the i7 has been crunching at 3.2ghz since yesterday at 100%. I raised it to 3.4ghz this morning.

    Hey guys, i am going home for Christmas so will have to power down the computer. Will be leaving for a good two weeks, and don't trust my computer to be on that long with out me supervising it.

    Will power it back on to crunch as soon as i get back though!

    Understandable, I'll probably have to turn everything off while I'm gone for Christmas. Haven't decided yet whether or not to leave everything running

    I don't stop crunshing during the holidays, I have no where to go anyway. I'll add another rig to have more power between christmas and new year day.:toast:

    that is so true..I am spending alot of my Christmas money on hardware to crunch..(that is how i got the E1500) but i still have more money coming .. I think it is going toward the Seasonic S12D 850(if i can spend that much on a PSU)


    BTW i had some down time because the network had been down. But everything is working again. I had to find my spare router as the one i was using just stopped working

    Now that my PPD's dropping, I think that there is a very good chance that you will overtake me soon, but for now I'm ahead :roll:

    I hope you can too, some friendly competition is always a good thing :rockout::rockout:
    I really need some threats so I have a greater incentive to up my output :(
