    ALWAYS do a new windows install when going from one chipset to another, even if its like p67 - z68/z77 just do it, otherwise you will spent countless hours troubleshooting

    :eek:

    I'll keep my same BOINC install (copy over the AppData folder), but for me, a new Windows install just seems like common sense.

    Best I got in that range is a single Delta fan, it's in my FS thread but for you I'd let it go for the cost of shipping it.

    I have some other random fans and such. I'll take a look at my stack when I get home.

    Got the 2500k crunching, it's at stock speeds ATM but will be bumped back up to 4.2GHz soon (or so I'm told). Thomas has agreed to leave the PC on 24/7, so it should do a good 3.5-4k PPD or so :toast:

    Well, 200 passes of LinX, and 8 hours in the OCCT CPU test turned up nothing. Maybe it's Lupis? Probably time to reformat... trying to decide on a drive to get. This drive is aging, kind of want something faster.

    I just might. I think one is bad though. I'd have to check.

    Well, you can probably get a 120GB SSD for just under $100 after rebate...and that would be smokin' compared to a 7200RPM disk.

    Well, if I get an SSD then I would need a rather large one as I would like to keep my games on it... unless I got a smaller SSD and installed just the OS and programs on it and such and kept my hard drive and used it for games only.

    I've added 8 threads total today, a Core i5-2500k (stock clocks for now) and a Core i5-2520M. It will be interesting to see the PPD that they'll do :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    There not going to be stellar results I can tell you that much . I have a i5 mobile I crunch from time to time and haven't seen over 1k ppd out of it. YMMV

    I get slightly over 1k PPD from a C2D Mobile, so I'd expect a good bit more. Mindweaver says he gets ~2k out of a desktop Core i3, and with Turbo, this shouldn't be that much behind the i3. I guess I'll see :toast:

    Well, that all depends on how much %, see my i7 820QM, 8 thread at 40%, I'm getting about 1.1k PPD average.

    X4 635 getting on, I see yesterday did 778, and I saw my PPD going from 7100 to 7700, and that might get higher.

    Next step, might be my parents server upgrade from a sempron 2600+ to a Celeron dualcore Sandybridge :D

    Well, just a quick update. I got the room, still a bit of scheduling but, nothing like before. I have, and completed, an application to the America House. That is an apartment building downtown with low rent for part-time workers and people with physical ailments that can't work. Anyways, it's a cool place right where I want to be. Work has been a bit hectic, a new guy started and then stopped showing up. So, even slowish days are harder because no one is scheduled to replace him. Oh well, I did get some overtime in this week...I don't mind so much since sitting in the park isn't what I was born to do, although I do enjoy it, most of the time.;)

    That's all for today, doing some rearranging of my storage space, hoping to lighten the load and eventually empty it and relieve myself of a month charge, I can barely afford! By this time next month it should be all empty...mostly because my sister, who I will be moving my stuff to, is on her own time clock, one vastly different from the rest of us humans! Tuesday, she was TWO hours late picking me up, we had planned this meeting for a week, with many reminders...It just doesn't matter to her. She gets sidetracked and forgets things...She's on Meds to help but, they haven't. Oh well, eventually I will get the storage place empty, blah blah blah.

    So much for a quick update!! :rolleyes:

    Take care, keep Crunching and see you all around here next week!

    P.S. I can hardly wait to start crunching again, I was pushing nearly 2 grand a day, right before the rug was pulled...Soon, and unexpectedly, my numbers will magically start climbing up. But, it's still a ways off. The light is clearly visible at the other end of this long tunnel!

    Glad to hear that things are going better for you Araj! :toast:

    A brief estimate on the i5-2520m, it looks like it should do ~1.8-1.9k PPD or thereabouts. Probably a bit less, as I know he carries his laptop to class occasionally, although he said that it is left on the desk almost all of the time. We'll see, that's about half of what my i7-3612QM seems to be doing, which is reasonable as it's a dual core at about the same speed.
