    :respect::respect::respect::respect: My office has 50 computers more or less, all with C2D E8200's, sadly I don't have permission to crunch on them. :(

    Ah, well :(

    My boss is a pretty cool guy, and he said he doesn't care if I do it as long as it doesn't slow down actual work (& it doesn't) :)

    So I should be getting up a few to start with tomorrow, then more next week :cool:

    That'll be great. Thing with me is I work for a huge Company, computers have restricted access only to work related stuff so I couldn't do it even if I wanted to.

    I'm working @ NC State, but my boss is my mom's cousin :laugh:

    So he's more open to my suggestions, requests, and ideas :laugh: :roll:

    Well there you go, we have a headquarter in NY that monitors all the PC's and such, anything that has to be done to them they do it, so it's really complicated for me.

    Well that's a real pain :(

    But I'm looking forward to the extra PPD for myself, TPU, and the cause :)

    I'd like to not be completely dependant on my i7....have some rigs farmed out in various places if possible ;)

    Yeah.....ATM everything is in my bedroom. PentM + C2DM + i7. I'd like to have some stuff here, some @ work, some @ friends places, etc. In case one person goes out of town, at least some will keep going ;)

    All I know is that both rigs crunching+folding is way too much heat, I don't know how I'll do it in the future :(

    Yeah.....GPUs suck up a ton of heat. Hence why I like to spread out :p

    Fortunately, 2 of my crunchers are laptops, power draw of those combined is ~70w :p

    :laugh::laugh:

    My C2D is pretty good point/watt, ~30w and 700 PPD

    Better PPD/w than the i7

    the i7's take a good amount of power but also put out the points. lets just throw some random numbers and bad math in
    lets say the i7 takes 125w and puts out 3k ppd
    that would equal ~24ppd per/watt.
    doesn't look so great when you look at like that but it also doesn't look that bad :ohwell:

    I get ~4.3k PPD from my i7 for about 250w (whole system). So about 8x the power of my C2D for ~6x the points

    going by your numbers that would make the i7 look even worse :laugh:
    there is no question that they are one of the best chips for crunching but aren't the best when it comes points/watt

    Also because I have a power-hungry GPU (this is even w/ GPU idle), and the C2D is a 15w laptop part :p

    I'm sure that a hex-core i7 & a GT210 or similar would be much better PPD/W ;)

    Comparing my mom's C2D, it does ~550 PPD for ~125w, so when compared to my OCed i7, it's obvious which is better :p

    That we do :laugh:

    Typically I'd say that an OCed i7 is hard to beat for PPD/$ and PPD/W, but laptops are quite nice for PPD/W. Mac Minis should also be pretty good. I'd figure an i3 laptop would even be better :)

    Prolly. But they're really expensive. A friend of mine has one, it was Dell's cheapest i7 lappy, it was $1500. And 1.6ghz :(

    So under half of the PPD of my i7 for ~2x the price. I'd rather deal with the extra power usage :laugh::laugh:
