    Thanks msgclb :toast:

    So far that's what I got:

    21/06/09 0:003:01:41:32 9,646 16
    20/06/09 0:005:02:03:43 14,562 25
    19/06/09 0:000:04:02:40 544 1

    I think is too soon to say. And I have been gaming a lot and messing around with the new rig.

    Will report solid results in a week or so.

    Very true! I've got a mix of single's (A,P4,PD), atom's, Duo's, dual Xeon's, X2's, Q2D, and I can barely hang with the i7 members... lol but, it does take a lot of time to keep up with 35 crunchers.. I usually have 4 to 5 down at a time... Plus, I usually have 60 to 90 Pending Validation at any given time but, I do have 159 to 165 in progress at the same time.

    Out of all my crunchers I have to say the Q6600 @ 3ghz is the best of mine based on price vs performance.

    With that being said, "Yes" a couple of i7's really do make the difference! I'm not saying run out and buy two i7's, but if you do you could fall into the TPU hired gun catagory! hehehe..lol :rockout:

    Do you know how much your life is worth? Currently mine is $1,721.81.:ohwell:

    On Monday Jun 8 I spent the morning in an ER getting my life pumped back into me and that's what they charged. A couple of days later my doctor sent me home with enough prescriptions to start my own pharmacy. Just remember you never know whose life you might save!:D

    I've been slowly gathering the components to put another i7 rig online. All I need now is the motherboard, memory and an ultra-120 for the 920. After I pay my July 1 bills I hope that I'll have enough left over to get it up and running.

    For a couple of weeks the temperature here has been going from a low in the 80s to the high 90s. My AC in the afternoons can't keep up with those 90s. This is affecting my crunching and folding and I'm temped to shut everything down and buy a ticket to the coldest place on earth. Right now I'd settle for a tornado if that's what it takes to bring rain.:eek:

    Have you heard of "URI"? It's viral upper respiratory infection. Breathing was darn near impossible. I was coughing and gasping for air. I was not to far away from having pneumonia. The cure is antibiotics, steroids and mucinex! That is after several hours on a breathing machine.

    OK.:toast:

    Sorry to hear and glad that you're OK:cool:


    BTW team, I'm going to be one less i7 rig since my 920 decided to crap out on me:wtf: Funny thing is that sucker is not even OCed. If was the one in my main rig-woke up yesterday to find it shutdown:wtf::banghead: Powered it up and it will only boot but not POST and just hang there. Numerous BIOS resets and restarts and finally I decided to take her apart. I was ready to declare the BIOSTAR mobo as being the culprit but when I switched out parts with my other rigs, the mobo works but the CPU is shot:eek::shadedshu:banghead::wtf: So awaiting on Intel to RMA this sucker:mad:

    I've never had a CPU die on me so would be interested in knowing how Intel handles your RMA.

    Bog, how the hell did you pull off over 8000 with one of your i7's down? Geez. Not bad at all for a disabled cruncher. I'm stuck at 4000 or so. Hopefully I'll get my other i7 back up by tomorrow night.

    LOL. That would explain it. I thought you had 2 i7's instead of 3. Damn. If I bought another, my wife would kill me.

    Those i7 rigs are killer, too bad its way out of my price range. Im trying to get a quad put together here shortly because what I am running now is horribly inefficient.

    My i7 and Q6600 are now running full bore, and tomorrow my 2nd i7 will be back up. For the final push to the top 100, I'm going to clock the snot out of all of them for the next couple of days. :rockout:

    How about 50? :)

    Just kidding, I know we should keep it realistic. I would say 90.
