    He's in Miami, it's hot there IMO.

    Edit- He beat me to the punch.

    From 3.4 Ghz to 3.0 Ghz its about 2-3ºc for me, but any bit helps. At night its not an issue but in the day it gets a bit warm in my room. I am also considering having another rig or two in the future. So that's one thing I keep in mind :laugh:

    It's hot here too, it's been ~85 every day for the past week

    Well, that's understandable, it's hot in my room regardless, so I might as well have things at 3.4ghz

    In that case, why not 4 GHz? :roll:

    Well, at 3.4ghz, I'm already at 57c in the afternoons, so I don't want to get any hotter. And it takes 1.46v on my X4 955 to get 3.9ghz (4ghz = instant fail), which is obviously even hotter. And the new 8800GTS is easily twice as hot as the HD5670 it replaced, so yeah

    Nice, that should do something like 800-850 PPD (I get about 700 on my P8600)

    Your think'n an Intel Mobile processor bro.. this is a AMD P9500 x4 desktop processor. I'm hoping for 1000 to 1200 ppd. Actually 974.29mhz by a very renowend estimator! The "Simple WCG PPD Estimator" by a very good friend of mine.. You!.. :p :respect:

    Bro i'm still very impressed with your estimator! A1 product of 2009! :toast: :respect::respect:

    Very true bro! :toast:

    Those's mobile chips are nice! :toast: I have an older T7200 2GHz C2D that I still think is very fast. But the newer penryn chips are kickass! A buddy of mine just got a new thinkpad with the p8600 and he likes it a lot! :toast:

    My P8600 is in a Thinkpad T400, and I love it. Battery life is very good (3.5 hours), it's cool (~55C after 48 hours of WCG), quiet (except the fan rattles a bit), and was very cheap (I got mine for $675).

    BTW, I'm back at 100% CPU usage (I dropped it to 85% a couple days ago), I converted a 92mm fan I pulled out of a Dell a while back into a fan shroud, and it's dropped my temps an average of 3c, even with the fan running slower! Win!! (all for ~15 minutes of work)

    Is that one of those strange 3 pin delta fans? I recently worked on a P4 with one of those.

    It was a Nidec with 4 pins, loud as hell, I could easily hear it from the other end of the house. But it kept temps ~7c lower than the Xiggy fan. However, I couldn't stand the noise, so I gutted it, turned it into a shroud, and now temps are ~3c lower than with the stock Xigmatek setup. I don't know what model Dell this came out of, my uncle gave it to me a while back, but I do recognize it as a Dell fan

    @ion

    Chomes also has the potential. I also do believe d.law has the 980x crunching for POS
