    its mainly the speed that determins the heat on the i7's imo, voltage is not the biggest issue, i saw a temp drop on 8c from 3900 down to 3700 on my CO at the same voltage
    but it does have a little influence, but only little

    Cool that's the sort of idea I wanted to get. I guess I won't trully know until I start playing around when I get the time. Rather than out-right performance would rather get a stable and not too-hot cruncher.

    Looks like noob day for me :laugh: Anyone know of a good guide to OC'ing X58 or can PM me their current BIOS setup?

    ok guys i just got into crunching and had a quick question - best upgrade from amd 965? i was thinking i7 930 as i have a microcenter nearby. I will be using PC for crunching and gaming so should i go i7 860 for the same price? or is it even worth the money/trouble?

    Heya! Fill in your system specs, so we can get a better idea. My guess is you already have a decent AMD setup, so possibly just update to the new 6-core 1099T. It should be close to an i7 setup but without having to spend on a whole new system.

    i keep mine at max 75c, and its a CO so its kinda okay,
    here is a guide http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=108526 its pretty nice

    are you using that mega cooler on the picture?

    with that you can do 3.9 24/7 easily imo

    bclk 195, multi at 20x, vcore at 1.250 maybe less or more, but you can try 1.3 first and work your way down, its not dangerous at that voltage, turn off all speedstepping thingies in bios


    the i7's are waaaaaaaay better than ANY PII at crunching, it even rapes the new 6core from amd :laugh:

    i think the new 6core puts out 3000ppd a day, and the i7 is like 4500 oc'et .ofc.
    afaik

    Thing is the cost of a new i7 rig would not be worth the difference a 6-core amd would make. Hope that makes as much sense as it did in my head. i7 build is twice the price of a 6core amd.. but not twice the performance. -ninja edit

    right on that part, so if you want a affordable cruncher/ gamer then its a 6core phenom

    but if you really dont have a budget then a i7 980X :rockout:

    Well if i sold amd board for $125 and chip for $150 i get $275 total towards i7 purchase. Currently the amd 1090t is $300 and i would keep the msi board so cost to switch is ~$150.

    The intel route would cost about $350 (open box mobo at newegg is currently 130 and microcenter is $200 for chip). this option would be about $75 more. Not significant really in my mind.

    In that case go i7, when price is not a factor, i7 still has the performance crown :toast:

    An i7 is definitely faster...an i7 930 @ 4ghz should crank out a bit over 4k/day (a bit less than I get on all of my rigs together). If you're interested in crunching until then, you should be able to get ~2800/day out of your X4 965. Check out the guide in my sig ;) :cool:

    If I would have had glasses on, they would have fogged up as I entered my room now when I arrived home. God, it's sooo hot. Both rigs plus a 5770 folding, I don't know how Imma do it, but none of them are getting shut off!

    My output is going to drop tomorrow, the H50 is scheduled to arrive, so I'll spend the evening setting it up and testing it

    Heat is so bad in here too. I also volt-modded the 8600GT to get alittle more points out of it.. Just more heat put into the room. Also i am going to set the overclock higher on the X2 and on the i7(when i get the new PSU)


    btw sorry but my output is going to be limited just to the P4's for awhile.

    I really think that due to heat output/temps the Chimp Challenge should really be done in January or February or some cold month :cool:

    no offense, but ill keep crunching for Stanhemi, that is more important to me than the Chimp thing,
    even though i dont know the guy in any way, i feel sorry for him and the shit he is going through.
    so until there is better news from him this rig is crunching for him.

    Good news. My PPD is going to be going up quite a bit as of next week. Waiting on Newegg to ship the order. (Building a rig for a friend. He leaves his PC on 90% of the time.)

    :D

    I have both of my rigs still on WCG, my i7 is crunching for him. I got both of my 5770's for the Chimp Challenge though

    Great dude, :rockout:

    The H50 still hasn't arrived (and it's nearly 7 here), so I doubt it's coming today. UPS usually comes before 3 for us. This is the only time that it has ever been here past 5:30
