    will do :toast:

    but i was thinking, one of my friends buys and resells broke company's and sometime there is servers included and stuff like that,

    and one of them have this dual cpu motherboard

    http://www.intel.com/Products/Desktop/Motherboards/D5400XS/D5400XS-overview.htm

    + 2 xeon E5430

    + lik 8gigs of mem, so i thought about making it into a cruncher, i can get it very cheap, think its 400$ total,

    but how good is dual cpus for crunching? i can only imagine it is good but i really dont know that much about it.

    The more cores the better. i7's with their HT 8 logical cores trash other 4 cores almost regardless of OC

    The laptop is coming back to WCG today (somewhere between 60-80% because of heat)

    WCG is online on my laptop now. 70% cpu usage

    I was thinking maybe a more modest 3 - 3.5ghz would do well considering it has a hand me down heatsink im not sure if it will be able to cope with the extra heat

    Right, and i'll even pay you just because you are gonna use it for crunching :wtf:

    i think its this one [​IMG] but im not sure,
