    Bogmali hooked me up with a great deal on another card. Thanks man! Looks like I'll be back in business on my other two rigs in less than a week!!

    Yup. I'll just have to deal with the crappy numbers until then. It's all good though. I'm sure some of you can make up for my lack of production.

    have fun on the vacation. Why not leave it run while your gone? I leave mine run but i lower the clock speed to slightly under stock just to be sure its going to be stable and to keep me at ease about the temps

    Sorry to hear that. I hope everything is ok. Well, after this recent storm took out one of my power supplies and a gpu, I'm up and running 2 rigs. My third rig will be up early next week, thanks to a couple of great WCG/Folding team members. :toast:

    yeah man. my next cruncher will be another i7. dual cores help and stuff but i rather waste a bit more and get an i7 rig.

    Reason why I'm doing a C2D rig for crunching is because my buddy had donated a CPU, so I said ehhh why not. BUt i have already bought a CPU for it anyways, just in case he needed his back. :D

    Thanks Paulieg and Chicken Patty :toast:

    About OC, yeah sooner or later I will. But for now I'm happy with low 60's temps. You know when you just get a "new toy", you do your best not to scratch it :roll:

    When you factor in power usage, the i7 is the only way to go for crunching. Using a kill-a-watt for power readings (maybe not the most accurate, but gives you an idea) my X3370 uses 270-290 watts running wcg. My i7 uses about 330. Both are clocked at 4ghz. 8 wu's at a time vs. 4 with just a little more power usage. If you are committed to long term, the i7 almost pays for itself :D

    it sure does. its better to have a few i7 rigs than a whole bunch of C2D's or x2's or even Q's or Phenoms. i7 just literally crunches them all :D

    I ran my i7 with the stock cooler and just optimized defaults until I got the 1366 bracket for my TRUE. I was surprised that my temps were only in the low 70's. I was getting about 24-25k wcg points. But now at 4ghz it's right about 35k.

    No Idea :confused:

    What's the easiest way to check it out?

    I mean, for a single rig?

    Here's one way to compare. Go to your My Grid page and under My Statistics click on Device Statistics.

    You should see your Device Name list like this...

    When you click on the Device Name you will get this ...

    (DFI-X58 i7 920 @ 3.5GHz)

    If you don't see the you Device Names then you probably need to go to your My Profile and check BOINC Show Hosts:.
