    For some reason, after the tweaks, mine ran a lot better. I don't know as far as #'s, but it just felt much snappier and faster. Plus the additional freed space was nice. :D

    The Cruncher X2 has been down since I ended up bringing it home. At this point if my stuff in my sale thread ends up selling then I can keep the Cruncher. :D

    In Fact, with modern SSDs, write thrashing is nearly unimportant... my old indilinx drive was veeeeery fragile when anything besides the OS itself did writes to it
    (and even that killed it in under a year, 2 times. im currently with the third one down to 47%).

    My Vertex 3 128gb didnt loose even a single percent of durability and lifetime in SSDlife, with the same amount of writes, that wrecked down my indilinx 32gb to about 47% (1500gb write), and that, with the Vertex writing the same amount of data in a fifth of the time (over a course of a few months)

    I dont even move the temp folders and the firefox caches etc to other drives anymore, i just turned off prefetch and superfetch,and indexing (i use "Everything".... Much better and faster than the vanilla Windows crap)
    and i got absolutely no problem till now, even run a few games off it;)

    Got myself an i7 3930K and P9X79Pro today to make a new christmas cruncher. Already got cheap H100, SSD and RAM beforehand so was oh so happy that I had everything... then I got home and I realised I sold all my spare PSU's :shadedshu :slap:

    It'll make a nice desk ornament until boxing day though :laugh:

    Damn dude, that happened to my buddy the one I sold the 1090T to. He went to Tiger Direct, bought everything. He gets to my house and starts to show me the stuff and I'm like "Hey, do you have a spare PSU at home or something?" He answered "no", so that's when it hit him that he never bought one. :roll: It happens dude.

    Anymore 2600K's for sale by any chance? :p

    Simple mistake, but always a big one lol. I've taken one of the 2600K offline to setup the 3930K for now. 4 extra threads instead of 12, but it'll do until i can get a PSU.

    Looks like it's certain I'll keep my job, so at the moment I won't be looking to downsize anymore. Think I'll carry on until Ivy Bridge arrives and that'll be a straight CPU swap. Also looking for a new place, so might even sell off the 2600K's before that. Will let you know ;)

    Finally got all the parts I needed, and setup all the computers. Just need to take the 3930K to my workplace and bring home the 2600K I have there.

    Give or take a few days for validation, should start 2012 with more or less 38K PPD:
    4x 2600K @ 4.5GHz
    1x 2700K @ 4.6GHz
    1x 3930K @ 4.5GHz
    Total: 52 Threads ~ 1kW
    (about 100$ a month to run)

    It is likely I may put up one of the 2600K's up next year for the WCG contest ;)

    I have some bad news. Power just went up 60%. My work is slowing down for the winter. As a result I'm pulling everything but the two intels. I hope to be back at full steam later.
