    Wow, that is loooong!

    I'm starting to think this may be a project for single core and older laptop crunchers (or even the non 24/7 rigs) to avoid. Would be pretty bad if after taking a few days it wasn't done before the deadline.

    A q6600 and that is the time your getting? Those Dengue drug ones take a loooooooooonnnnggg time to complete. They must be more complex then the average ones we get. :toast:

    From the WCG website:
    It seems like my Q9550 self-aborted a WU for this project... little confused:confused:

    Here's my Q8400:

    I'd vote for the PII. Both do the same PPD, but the AMD should be easier to keep at cool temps. Not 100% sure but think it may also draw less power.

    prob right, they cost around the same used,

    any good stable am2+ boards? or should i just get a 785 board?

    haha CPXD

    dont think i have THAT much money, think i have a little over 1k USD in total when i hit May, a used PII system would cost me like 300$ or similar id say

    already have a C2D mobile, a q8300 and my i7 crunching, they are all part time, but its better than nothing imo

    Right it was in Danish (short message for DON's eyes only, now deleted). Just told him to run his i7 some more hours and he would add a good portion to his score.

    If you're waiting till May, I may be swapping (or have swapped) my Q8400 rig for an i7 rig so I may be able to ship it over to Denmark reasonably cheap. Dunno, suppose it's best to see how it goes nearer the time. Would like to see the Q8400 crunching after I retire it :D

    Will do. My other idea was to make a small cruncher competition and give it away to the winner... (well minus shipping costs) but that requires a lot of thought haha

    40KG? lol that's crazy shipping costs. But it would be a good idea. Dunno, maybe we should start conjouring up a "Mayday! May cruncher competition of sorts". And donate parts we are either getting rid of or have spare to the winners. Like a more exotic one-off version of the thread "Crunchers helping crunchers". Or am I just going a little crazy here?

    One competition idea could be "Most improvement over the month of May" ? Dunno just a random thought

    EDIT: Or a essay thing like AMD was doing recently

    Ahh you mean the 4 GB of RAM and the two Veloraptors :laugh: BTW I bought it in Germany. Shipping was about the same as the price I paid for the server.

    used it won't run that much. $450 and you can get a i7 mobo and CPU. Look at how much more crunching power for just a few bucks more :toast:
