    I got my i7 running at 3.9ghz now on 1.24v a very small bump from 3.8ghz and temps are around the same so i will keep it there.

    Also about 5mins ago the cap on the Pentium D board vented :( looks like i won't have time to save up...i think i am going to let it go still and see if it can crunch on a blown cap for awhile worst that could happen is it could kill everything.I really need to get a new soldering iron so i can recap the board and the 2 8600GT's i have. If i get the GT's working they would be put to use for folding and PhysX If i can save the Pentium D board that would be great just to have the extra ~800ppd till i get the AII

    Sorry about the issues with the PentiumD, but the boost on the 920 should be decent.
    I'm down to 45c load @ 3.4ghz with the X4 955, so I'm going to try OCing it a bit more tonight, I'll shoot for 3.6-3.7

    Well I have no idea how much my Phenom II rig was down today. was off when I got home, ended up having to reinstall windows yet again. I'm not connecting the other drives though, Im leaving only the SSD to rule out what my issue is. 3rd time I reinstall windows because install goes bad.

    I personally don't think it'll be off by much at all. If the deal is good, go for it.

    I think that Core i7 w/ HT is not quite 2x as fast clock-for-clock as Core 2 Quad or Phenom II (Athlon II) X4, so it wouldn't be quite as fast, but if the price is right go for it

    Just out of curiosity what are your highest and lowest points per hour for one core? I hit an all time low with a HCC on my Xeon MP 2.7 GHz at 2,57 BOINC/hour today and my best is a Rice on my 4 GHz E8400 with 38.21. Some difference.

    2 of my rigs are going down between today, and Friday long enough to swap out MB's and re install OS's. I plan to take my P45 board out of my E8400 machine, and putting it in my Q9550 rig with a P35. The main reason for doing this will be to better utilize my 5850 Vapor-X's in crossfireX. My GTX285 will be replacing my 8800gs in my E8400 to fold full time. :toast: The 8800gs will go to my little brother.

    Oh, and I got my CM Storm Scout today! I'll be putting my Q9550 in there and retiring my Ghetto case(per velvet waffer! :roll:). :toast:

    ^^ dammit. Imma have all my rigs down simultaneously the next week or two. They are doing new walls/windows in my apartment so when they do I have to shut off and cover up the PC, the dust and debris is way too much to leave them on uncovered.

    does look kinda Ghetto but it doesn't look bad...Put some nice fan grills on it and take off the fan hanging with a rubberband and it would be nice.
