    The Strange Newcomer I'm him

    So I've been crunching about a week just thought I would post here to let it be known I've been crunching with two builds so far and plan on adding another.... My WCG account name is the same as this one and I already joined the TPU team..

    In daily use i didn't notice any difference between the i7@4ghz vs the X2 240@4ghz :D

    i know that wasn't directed at me but i just wanted to give my input....

    I need to sell my C0 and get a D0 so i can do 4ghz 24/7 without alot of voltage.

    i got everything for WCing but the pump i still have to wait for it who knows how long that will take :(

    wasn't noticeable in games. The 240 had almost 1.6v going into it (1.58v)

    I think i found a solution to the problem of wanting a D0... Save money buy a D0 keep the C0 and later grab the DFI X58+3gb ddr3 (1x3gb) and replace the Pentium D with a i7
