    It may be a bit old, but it's a perfectly serviceable setup :toast:

    At least in the US, they're pretty cheap. A C2Q Q6600 can be had for $100 easy :toast:

    It looks like a P965 board, which IIRC didn't.
    Ah, I see. That makes sense then

    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.

    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 :p
    Still, I'll take any new additions to the farm :)

    Absolutely :)

    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:

    Well I wanted more PPD and started Lauren's Laptop crunching again. Just a little C2D, but it'll put out some okay points.

    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 :ohwell:

    Anyway, nice to have you join us mydog, it's nice to see 2Mill on the daily updates :rockout:

    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 :rolleyes:

    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 :toast:
