    Thanks, I appreciate it. Hopefully this machine can at least match the Celeron 430 at 100%... I had that running at 2.4GHz, and since this is a 1.2GHz dual, they should be roughly matched. This processor has half the bus speed, but lots more cache.

    Same to see you sell it. But I understand car repair bills all too well. :shadedshu

    On the bright side, my birthday is tomorrow. :rockout:

    (If anyone has a copy of Dead Island they don't want. I'll gladly accept it as a birthday present. :laugh: )

    Right, just wanted to say sorry, but I'm going to be dropping my production for about 2 weeks.:eek:

    This weekend I'll be switching 4 of my crunchers over to F@H. Then the following weekend I'll power everything down for a week whilst I go on holiday. So for two weeks I'll be crunching on just one 2600K.

    I'll be lurking around the forum until I go on holidays but I hope to be back crunching full power on the 26th.

    Keep on crunching, and good luck to everyone entering this year's contest :toast:

    Hi all,

    Just thought I would let the CP (and the team) know that my numbers are going to dip a little.

    Power costs have gone up exponentially in this (crap) country, and as such I cant crunch as much now, cutting down to 1 PC 24/7 at home, 1 PC 24/7 at work.

    Sorry....
    KieX and stinger608 say thanks.

    Just wanted everyone to know that The Spot has been upgraded to v2.0! It's crunching on a "limited" basis, about 10 hrs a day beside the Family-PC in my signature. The update has been listed in my System Specs if you want to have a look.

    If you can't wait, here's the listing :p

    EVGA x58 sli 132-BL-E758-RX
    Corsair XSM3 6gb ddr3-1600 9-9-9-24
    Intel Core i7 960 @ 3.2GHz

    I haven't exactly decided what to do with my parts from the original Spot rig (Phenom x3 8650 @ 2.3GHz, 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3). I originally planned to run it as a full time cruncher, but I don't really have a place to put it other than my room, and that's loud enough as it is with my machine! Most likely scenario is that it will sit before I finally get around to finding a new home for it to sit in.

    :toast:

    P.S. Quick shout out to Feanor for selling me the parts. The i7 had been sitting in my room since January, and it was a pretty awesome deal. I know he doesn't Crunch, but he deserves the credit as a member of this forum!

    Nope, nothing happening in F@H that I know of. But I'm loyal to both teams, and after going so hard at WCG, thought I'd give our other team some loving too for a little while.

    @ JrRacingFan + f22a4bandit: welcome back and welcome upgrade :rockout:

    We have a WCG contest, check it out: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=151595

    This may be a stupid question but right now I am crunching all the projects listed. What will score more points? 1 project or all projects? I am crunching at 100% CPU, just about 24/7, what else can I do to squeeze out as many points as possible.
