    8300? I would say about 1200-1400PPD? Sounds reasonable. Maybe even more.

    Cool. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to confirm what I get and start the new year with the new cruncher. I think I've become addicted already. Look forward to having i7 or i9 rig if I get a job sometime

    Guys,

    I've been having some problems with my internet connection since last night. Browser works fine, but Windows Update/AIM/MSN/BOINC cannot connect. I have tons of work that has not been uploaded. Gotta go to work now, I'll take a look at it in the PM when I get home.


    EDIT: GUYS, I'M ANNOUNCING IT HERE FIRST. I AM SELLING MY i7 920 D0 AND MY EVGA X58 3X SLI BOARD. THE CPU IS PENDING TRADE BUT THE BOARD IS UP FOR GRABS. ASKING $160 FOR THE BOARD. THE BOARD HAS A DEAD RAM SLOT BUT RUNS FINE AND READS ALL 6GB'S FINE, BUT NOT IN TRIPLE CHANNEL. I HAVEN'T RMA'ED THE BOARD BECAUSE I NEED TO SAVE ALL MONEY POSSIBLE TO FIX MY CAR. WHOEVER PURCHASES THE BOARD WILL GET IT STRAIGHT FROM EVGA, MOST LIKELY A NEW BOARD. PM ME IF INTERESTED.

    ATM I am using the rig in my specs. I also have my sister's Macbook doing some work, although I can't control that output cos I can't force her to crunch all 24/7 like me.

    The Q8400 is coming soon, and I'll try get that overclocked as highly as I can. Unfortunately it is going inside an SFF case with the stock heatsink for now, so not expecting too much yet. I just wanted another 24/7 cruncher cos I've become addicted :D

    EDIT: P45 on the Q9550 and G31 on the Q8400

    i use the p43 on my q9550... sux!
    i cant get more than precisely 400fsb.... thats the bane upon this chipset. but its cheap:laugh:
    i maybe need a new board,someday;)

    another quad is a good base to start with. you will probably double your output :)

    The Q9550 does about 2700-2800ppd which is nice. If I can get the Q8400 to do 1500 or more with slight overclocking then that would be 4200ppd + per day. Looking forward to it. Gonna try real hard to get a job as of January too.. so hopefully I will get an i7 main rig at some point to double up again.

    my 955 is much faster than my q9550, yet it produces much lower points, i believe this is due to usage ( i game a lot):)

    do you want to buy an i7 when theyre oldskool? :p

    Yeah I tend to buy computers based on potential overclock/performance rather than the latest highly priced stuff. For games, which I originally built this rig for, I could have similar performance in game for a fraction of the price. With Intels overclocking like mad these days I don't see the point in dishing out. Although for crunching I am lusting after those i7's :respect:

    I always heard the P43 was about as good as the P35 and the P45 was on a completely different level :laugh:

    My P45 won't go above FSB470 no matter how many volts I feed the thing. When I get the Q8400 I'll split my RAM 4GB each way and hopefully this will let me clock above 470, I get the feeling the 8GB is the problem with my overclocking.

    Mind you with crunching all the time stability is far better than insane speed with random BSODs. I already had to drop from 4GHz to 3.9

    Might not be your board at all. Many of the 45nm quads have a fsb wall right around 470

    not completely different... other;)
    im limited to 3.4ghz max OC... but so, i dont need an expensive cooler, undervolting is really usable for this kind of task:D
    now even 4 heatpipes in a tower cooler can cool it properly (most times around 48-52c load)

    I've been out of town :p
    No internet access until today to check the stats, but the rigs have been crunching (at least the Q6600, Q9400, and P8600 have).
