    I think you're right. At least, not less. As Norton said, it depends on overclocking and on the type of task. So my FX-8120 4,4 GHz get about 6k ppd.
    Norton says thanks.

    Pretty close- though I think the FX will net you higher ppd than the first i7's when you get the clocks up over 4Ghz

    EDIT- just as Daimus states above ^^^ ;)

    That's something like 90% of what my i7-2700k does @ 4.4GHz--AMD is doing well indeed! :toast:

    so it looks like the AMD FX would be the wise choice when paired with a good board for folding?

    That would be a solid setup :toast:

    Currently, WCG has GPU WUs out, and even a cheap HD7770 can get 30k PPD. But those are expected to run out (and mark the conclusion of the HCC project) in about three months--so unfortunately not a ton of life there :(

    But yes, an AMD FX is a good choice. Just realize that they're 125w stock and put out quite a lot of heat OCed :p

    it is getting very cold around this area for the time of year so the more heat the computer puts out, the more i can turn the thermostat down :laugh:

    So i'm thinking a 8 core FX along with a 990fx gigabyte or asus board with some ripjaws, still deciding on the PSU and GPU, The PSU will depend on the choice of GPU(s) i get,

    I still have a pair of 650w Antec Earthwatts at home--I could send you one for a good price :toast:

    The temps I can get on my APU under WCG load are just totally wicked. :eek:

    The CPU 0 and GPU Thermal Diode are 10 higher than shown here. And the FCH doesn't work at all.

    Disclaimer: Temp readings have been wrong before, and they may be so here too. But I don't see them as far-fetched.

    So my i7-860 and i7-920 rigs have been stable at 3.5GHz and 3.8GHz respectively, should I try for higher? Temps are all over the place--at night, they can get down to just over 50-55C, but are up at nearly 70C during the day.

    For what reason?

    I was just amazed at what a bit of draft in the room did to the temps in my system. All programs shows the same numbers. Used that one because it named them nicely. :)

    Did read here and there that AMD CPU temps can lack in precision at lower temperatures, thats' why I mentioned it. And the temps sensors certainly doesn't work at idle on it. The fact that the hard drive also went down a good bit, makes me a bit more sure of the general readings.

    I wouldn't do it. I found when i had my i7s that 3.5-3.8 was the sweet spot to keep temps and power in check and upping the speed a little more didn't net enough gain IMO

    I would like to say i forgot how helpful and friendly the people of this community truly are.
    Also you guys have an amazingly nice guy as part of this team Mjmike,thats all i'm going to say for right now.

    Oh, well I thought that it was the program - turned out not to be.

    :p
    That's kinda what I'm thinking. Particularly with the GPU WUs, upping the CPU speed another 5-10% wouldn't nearly bring 5-10% higher PPD--and could very well make the systems unstable. Particularly the i7-860 I had some troubles with. But I might go for 4GHz on the i7-920 just because.



    I ended up not switching my laptop over to Linux Mint--I booted off the Live DVD first and it didn't recognize the WiFi adapter. So that's definitely a no-go.

    I would love to see it, Would be a low power use cruncher and i have 2 tablets that i don't even use anymore,so would be nice to try
