    in folding i'd say it should kick ass, for gaming not so much.

    dont forget that every CPU has its own memory controller, thats a lot of added bandwidth - even if its on old, slow ram

    it will be soon right now i am still playing with os's it does perform pretty well 2.93ghz 8c/16t i7 still beats it but in heavily multithreaded stuff it still holds its own.

    dont forget about numa!

    So how much does it cost, compared to a common i7 setup?

    From what I've seen at XS you can get a setup with 4 quad-core Opterons for about $800 or so.

    Oh wow, that's insane! I take it the board is by far the most expensive part?
    I'd estimate ~1-1.3k PPD per quad, so 4-5.4k for them all. Or, regrettably, less than a SB i7 @ ~4ghz

    Hi all. Long time no post for me so I thought I would throw in a pic of the i7 rig. I just finished re routing tubes and I am happy with the temps now. Never mind the dust ;)

    Some new toys for the weekend. Putting system specs rig into the T60 and swapping my Razer Deathadder for the Cyborg RAT 5. Hoping I'll have more luck with this i7 than the last one.

    Awesome sauce - the Lian Li Pitstop, that thing is a hunk of over priced junk.

    Was an OK price for me. Plus I don't intend to use it as designed. I just wanted it because it was the easiest way to get a mobo tray and hard drive racks with no need to shred a case to bits. It will be spread all over a shelf which i think is better than the risky balancing design.

    Returned my 580 and got a 570, returned my h50 and got a h70. Saved me about $100 which allowed me to get new parts.
