It may be a bit old, but it's a perfectly serviceable setup
already looking for used c2q's
At least in the US, they're pretty cheap. A C2Q Q6600 can be had for $100 easy
Does the mobo take 45nm?
Got a Q9650 here for sale, just contact me up on MSN.
lol i wont pay more than 75 for one thats what they go for here, a q9xxx is around 130$
@mydog dont have alot of money atm, but if you have it in a mmonth or so i might be interested
It looks like a P965 board, which IIRC didn't.
Ah, I see. That makes sense then
there is "beta" supprt for the newer c2q's, but if i buy one used ill prolly get a used p43/p45board for cheaps
Well I'm selling of some of my old 775 stuff now, already listed it here in Norway so unless I get a good bid for it I'll save it for you.
Got a E8400 and a E8600 too and a couple of mobos too like Evga 790i and an REX.
I would not have expected that to be honest. I stand corrected
I should be at 100k sometime tomorrow
First 100k fells so good, congrats
That you should....and then it's badge time for you
Added 12 more threads in the form of 3 Atom 330s. I'll update with screenshots later once they're farther in to their WUs. Based on the benchmark results (a paltry 608 whetstone per thread) I'm expecting between 750 and 1k PPD for the trio...or about what my C2D laptop does
Still, I'll take any new additions to the farm
Every CPU-cycle counts to help cure deases
And the trio should be good for about 12 days of runtime a day, regardless of their PPD output
Regrettably, CPU-Z won't play nice with me, but I have 3 of these going:
Wow Atom is slow
I thought that my PentM was slow with it's ~14 hours/WU with HFCC....but damn! :shadedshu
Well I wanted more PPD and started Lauren's Laptop crunching again. Just a little C2D, but it'll put out some okay points.
My "little C2D" laptop does almost 1k PPD if crunching 24/7
It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that I was just breaking into the top 2000, but now I'm in the top-1500
Sandybrige was taken back by the e-retailer I bought from. They even paid for the courier back to their warehouse. Just got to wait 3-4days before I know if I get sent a new one or not. Fingers crossed now
Anyway, nice to have you join us mydog, it's nice to see 2Mill on the daily updates
Best of luck...you must be tense ATM!
Yeah. Definitely. If they replace it then I'll be able to afford a second Sandybrige cruncher. If they don't then I'm stuck with 1 only.
So you have another one going ATM? Or just another planned?
I'm having a bit of a problem trying to convince my parents to let me sell my Lynnfield system for a SB......my mom said "no" but she said it in a way like she could likely be convinced to go along with things. We'll see
I'll try this with a formula because otherwise I'll get lost:
RMA replacement given + payday = 1 SB with current mobo + 1 brand new SB rig
No RMA replacement given + payday = buy 1 SB to replace dead SB + not enough for new SB
So I'd end up with 30 or 38 threads depending on luck and customer service
Good luck with that
