    Cool. I was just tempted by the idea of having two processors in one case to save space. Maybe I'll end up having to put on shelves like some others do.

    Anyone know what power a dedicated i7 cruncher uses? My Q8400 is 105W at the socket, so I want to get an idea to see how many rigs I can afford to run.

    Depends on GPUs and clock speeds. I'd say ~150w @ stock speeds with a cheap PCI GPU, maybe ~225w at ~3.8ghz, more with a high-end GPU for F@H.

    Thinking 3.8 to 4.0 with the lowest powered gpu i can find to boot it. 225W seems low. My main system in specs pulls 305W crunching with GPU idle :eek: 4870X2 ain't power savvy

    EDIT: Sorry, re-read that I see how 225 now makes more sense

    I agree with Tim not taking the heat. If it wasn't for heat I'd have many more crunchers and I would fold as well. Right now I don't have the QX crunching anymore, but just the two rigs make the room really hot. If I added another rig or two and folded as well it just wouldn't be bearable. That's why I will have an i7 and my Phenom II 965. I might, I might build one more i7 after that for a 3rd rig but if I can't relocate the rigs to another room, three is my limit.

    Yah man, can't wait. Not only am I going back to i7, but it's the same board/CPU as before so it's like I never let go of the i7 :laugh:

    I am working on my new cruncher its going to be in a USPS flat rate box (medium) I have been working on testing fan placement and even wired the fans down to 5v to make the rig near silent. Now i don't have a CPU for it :( i need a s775 CPU for free...

    I am working on the Final one right now. The first one i cut all up testing different fan locations and different ways to mount the board :laugh: Bad part is my ACF7 Pro is going to be sticking out about 4inches(well maybe closer to 3inches) :ohwell:

    I have a fed-ex box someplace around here... but it doesn't matter as i am going to paint the box
