    Is that with the fan/heat sink as in your picture (air from top) ? Not bad at all but some spread. How long was the Real temp running?

    i will get you the temps when i find a progy that will check the temps for me
    thanks
    check my new pic i changed case and direction of the heatsink but still the same temps
    real temp hasn't been running long but i have had it crunching for about 30min when i took that SS. I left real temp running and right now it is showing the same temps :toast:

    thanks.here is the kick... Its being cooled with a Rosewill fort 120+MX-2 with fan control on silent

    Looks like you got a cool running CPU.

    what is the highest safe temp for a i7? I am thinking about clocking it higher but don't want temps too high

    You got a good cruncher there! What are the PDD predictions?

    no idea yet as they haven't shown on the stats. But from what i have seen around 3k ppd maybe CP can give us both an idea since he had a i7 before

    You can try this program by Ion:

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1685795&postcount=1

    I recon more than 3K without problem. My Q9550 does 2.7K and your i7 will have a breeze smashing that

    Edit: Oops, looks like no i7 support yet

    From what I have seen then >3500 is the norm, but I don't know if there are run 24/7. Mine will hopefully come before the weekend....and then we can race ;)

    Edit: Mind you mine will be more "ghetto" then yours - it will be elevated from my work shop table by ½" by bolts with fans as needed around (no need I think, since it is 5-8 C in there). No case. I go for 4 GHz 24/7.

    I had a thought today... there may be a way for me to upgrade my Kuma to an Athlon II x2 240 for free. My aunt said she wants a new computer when she gets her income tax money... I origionally planned to get an Intel combo with an E3200, but I saw that they have the same combo deal for $8 more (but with free shipping, so it would probably work out cheaper in the end), except it has an Athlon II x2 240 and an am2/am2+/am3 board.

    I could probably get her to agree to letting me build her pc with my processor, and then taking the 240 for myself. She said she would pay me for building the pc—she can pay me by doing this. The 240 is OEM (no heatsink) but I happened to keep the stock heatsink from my 7750BE, which I can use for the 240...

    My i7 is averaging about 3500ppd so far at 3.5ghz, it varies a lot day to day and it also has to feed 2 GTX 275s. Thats on Win7Pro64. A little low from what I was expecting- maybe it needs more speed.

    That seems about right bro, mine did about 4300-4500PPD at 4.1 GHz I believe.

    would it be worth replacing my X2 5kBE AND X2 4200+ with a i3?

    I would say yes as they clock better right? Higher clock speed, more PPD. How much are i3's anyways? maybe you can just get a quad...

    i was on the egg and i found that it will cost around $240 to get a i3. Its a dual core with HT.

    btw what is a safe voltage/temps for the i7?

    Seeing some questions about temps and output, I'd thought I give you guys a shot of my best 920. Close to 5k a day with a 8800GT folding also. Cooling with a true, 2 gentle typhoon 1450's, accelero s1 on the video, and an antec coolspot blowing over the ram and northbridge. Sits on a shelf in my garage, ambient right now at 65f. I'm running everest ultimate for monitoring the temps. Look in the farm thread for a pic of the set-up.

    Also, see the stats on my other rigs. The other i7 runs at 4.0 and averages 4400-4500. I've noticed that most seem to be averaging a little lower numbers at the same clock. I'm curious as to why, maybe different projects or os?

    I would say max temp 80ºc for daily usage, benching the most I go is 90-93ºc for quick bench runs. Voltage for daily about 1.4v, benching I have done 1.567v without any issues.

    True, I forgot about that. $230 is not bad i would say.

    You know what helps a lot, when a rig is a dedicated cruncher. When I was in Orlando i didn't use my i7 for three days, it did average like 5000PPD per day at 4.1GHz. Just by not using it.

    Just played with my clocks a little to see if I could get any more 'quick' speed out the 860- the results were not good. Didn't want to waste any more time fiddling, I will wait for the right opportunity.

    Yeah sometimes you waste so much time it ain't even worth it to squeeze out just a few MHz. It's happened to me before.

    I'm soooo jealous of all of the i7 owners, one good clocked i7 (such as 4x4n's) does as much PPD as the following:
    C2Q Q6600
    Phenom II X4 955
    Core 2 Duo P8600
    Core 2 Duo E6550
    2xP4s
    (all at stock)

    One day, an i7 will be mine......one day o

    It ain't much, but ...

    I persuaded a couple of guys at work to crunch for TPU on their home PC's.

    Now if I could only get past the firewall, my dual Xeon work PC could throw some real numbers up. :(

    I agree with you somewhat CP, but the 4.0 one is my main rig that is used all the time and still has high ppd. I'm not a heavy user though, not much gaming, some photoshop, internet, etc.
    i7 is the only way to fly :rockout:

    Plus, it will use much less power than all of those.

    They are truly crunching monsters :respect:

    Good job bro, it'll be sweet if you sort that out, keep us posted man.

    me neither, but the increase was great when I left it alone, I couldn't believe it!

    I still don't know how the heck you did that! :(
