That makes more sense, I thought my i7 was a dud for a second
Let me borrow it and I'll show you what it can really do.
Me too! I feel a bit better after RAMMIE's response
If I got an i7, it would only replace the X4, the P4s, E6550, P8600, and Q6600 would still run (Q6600 is a friends computer, all of the others are computers used for other things and would still run).
Can't go wrong with free OS.I run 08 evaluation on all my machines.After the trial period expires nothing happens except the background turns black.You can still change it to any color.
Free OS FTW!
So it doesn't have bi-hourly reboots and expiration like windows 7 beta? have you got a link for that trial?
NO reboots. Just don't activate.
I was really looking for something to replace the W7 RC1 cos of the looming shutdown and expiration. Miss the days when I could get things free of MSDN payed by my university. I found they have a trial for the R2 version as well, so grabbed both in case one decides not to play nicely.
i am going to try for 4ghz wish me luck. be back shortly
Luck man, keep us posted Tim.
R2 will do the reboot thing after 180 days.
Don't stop until you hit 4ghz
If you have any questions, just ask.
i'm back... 4ghz isn't going to happen on this cooler. It runs nice and cool around 3.7ghz but for 4ghz temps go to idle at 54c and at load it hits around 75c. Not worth the jump in temps.I will see about getting a new cooler sometime or adding a 2nd fan to the heatsink for push/pull to see if it helps
Ah, thanks for the info. Will avoid that then
i7 @ 3.7 ain't no slouch.
that maybe but i want more power from it Coming from a 3.6ghz X2 240 i thought the i7 would hold me over but i still want more
What cooler do you have? 54 at idle is way high, even a crappy cooler should do better than that. But ya, these do put out a lot of heat when you start clocking them up. Try the push/pull set-up and see if that lowers them some.

it keeps my temps ~60c at 100% crunching load without a problem at firstname.lastname@example.org so thats what i am going to keep it at
That looks pretty decent, I'm surprised that your temps go up that much. The 3.7 clock will still be a very good producer, I'm guessing 3800-4000 ppd.
you are suprised that they only rise soo little from idle to load right? If so that's what I'm wondering too.
here are idle temps (keep in mind fan control is on to keep fan speed low)
here are load temps
Those are good man, those load temps are really good.
ahhh should i build i7 860 now or wait till AMD x6
I7 runs eight projects as opposed to six on the AMD six core.
what socket are the AMD X6 going to be on?
Separate names with a comma.
