Neat! That means more CPU power for me, and a total upgrade for my fiancee's son who has been having issues with his computer anyways... he probably won't have an issue running WCG either, so my i5 2400 that's already doing WCG will get replaced by a more powerful 2600k, and the 2400 will likely crunch on as well. :toast:

So, on top of a nice upgrade for me, it'll also solve problems for someone else... :pimp:

I have the 2600k currently testing at 4GHz, with a little undervolt even. It passed 100 runs of Linpack Xtreme at 2GB (thanks @Regeneration ) and I'm doing another 100 at 6GB right now. After that, some good old Prime95, and then it will crunch.

The i5 2400 it replaced is now in my fiancee's son's system. I'm getting it set up for him right now, but it's already crunching as there's no overclock to verify. :toast:

I'm very close to running WCG on the 2600k! My undervolted 4GHz settings passes 100 passes of Linpack Xtreme at 2GB and at 6GB. It's probably totally stable, but I want to run Prime95 as well for a while just to be sure. That's gonna be a long overnight run, so likely over 12 hours... but I have no reason to think it wouldn't pass and I can get BOINC running tomorrow. :rockout:

The times I ran stress tests and then found when I ran Boinc it crashed was unreal lol I just used Boinc instead then for testing as it seemed easier and faster to see if it break anything :)

I hope everything works out well for you and runs well :)

That's odd. I would expect the test to crash but WCG run fine, if anything...

To my surprise, prime95 did give me a BSOD where Linpack did not. Usually it's the other way around for most people, but that's why I run more than just one test... so still working on it, but it looks good right now.

Benchmark Scores I've actually never benched it!! Too busy with WCG and FAH and not gaming!! :( :(
I used to run stress test programs like Prime and got hooked on it trying to make sure it was stable. When I had my 920 D0 over on the EVGA forums they had a thread for stability with LinX and it had to run a particular test for you to get a badge, but needless to say with the volts I was around, I had one of the best CPUs there. Will see if I can find the link in a mo :)

But afterwards if it's not crashing with Boinc or whilst gaming, you'll find it's pretty sorted. I tend to run Cinebench R15 or something like that to gauge a bit of stability, then just up the volts a little and test away, if things are stable and running without any issues, for me that's enough :) You can fine tune it but most of the time for a few degree's in temp isn't sometimes worth the extra hassles :)

It's at -.05v right now. It may not be much, but I wanted to do what I can to make it run a little bit cooler and draw a little bit less power. It's also psychologically satisfying to say "undervolted 4GHz"...

I've almost hit the 12 hour mark in Prime95. Soon it will be crunching again. :rockout:

I'm a little torn right now. I've passed the 12 hour mark, but I really want 24 to be really sure... which turns into around 42 hours really, as I work this weekend. If I do that (feeling like I probably will, so I know the rig is rock solid) WCG gets installed no later than Saturday night, given it doesn't crash. At that point though it ought to be good for 24/7 running.
