Chapel Hill, yep.
The only reason why I said, "Just don't say Siler city or Durham." is because the crime and poverty in those places is pretty bad. A friend of mine had his cousin get murdered in a drive-by shooting there in the late ninties. Of course that was over ten years ago when the economy was better in Durham. Who knows how it is now.
I'm coming for you guys!
Just waiting to rid of my few last e5200's and then I am going to start weeding out these crappy AMD chips that don't crunch worth a crap.

90,000 I am so close I can taste it.
T77, almost there bud
450k I'm getting closer to a mill. btw CP i will have 12threads 24/7 soon but sadly 4 of them are dual cores(Pentium D and Athlon X2)
That's awesome bro, the more the merrier.
Side note: I just got Eyefinity setup.
I just noticed for the money i dropped on WCing i could have built a AII X4 cruncher
Congrats to Greasemonkey joining the 2 million club!!!!
Pictures or it didn't happen.
Well, hopefully the WCing will allow you to OC the i7 more, maybe 4+ghz?
AMD chips for some reason don't crunch as well as Intel...
I have a handful of Phenom2 duals and tri's that don't do quite as well as my e5300/e6300s.
i3's on the other hand from what I can find rip up some serious points.
I can't agree with this. My X4 955 is putting out better PPD than my Q9400 ever did, admittedly it's 3.4ghz vs 2.8ghz, but still, I'm very happy with it.
Like [Ion], don't agree with that either. My Q9550 and Chicken Patty's Phenom are doing pretty much the same PPD at 3.8GHz. There are always going to be small discrepencies because of environmental differences.
I was just about to say that Kiex, thanks for pointing that out
In general it feels like AMD CPU's are a generation behind intel's since they are on par with LGA775 offerings, rather than the latest intel sockets. The thing that makes AMD still on par IMO is the fact that you save a good amount of money buying AMD motherboards. It is hard to find good full featured intel motherboards at AMD motherboard prices. If it wasn't for board partners keeping prices low, I would think the enthusiast market would buy less AMD chips.
I find that quite interesting..
Considering I have a Phenom 2 3.0ghz dual core on windows 7 x64 clean and it runs around 800PPD, whereas my e5200 @ 2.5ghz in another machine with a clean install of windows 7 x64 puts out about the same PPD.
I have to admit though my AMD Athlon 2 Tri-cores seem to be doing pretty good... Maybe something is up with my Phenom, I have been having issues with it blue screening under Windows 7 x64 but from what I can find its a common issue with the mobo that's in it.
Been a long time since I have seriously screwed around with AMD stuff...
Like the socket 754 days long time.
