Something is wrong. I've been running my i7 and a Q6600 for the last 24 hours straight. My points seem very low considering....

http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=team&proj=bwcg&team=22175&sort=today
I've been taking them.:laugh:

My i7 920 has 2,513 and my Q6600 has 884 so far for today. I'll have to retract that first statement. I don't see your 920 listed with my farm!:D

There's going to be another milestone today:

yeah but it only has 4 cores, the rest are just hyperthreading and that should only add 15%?
its getting like more than twice the performance...

Yeah but it's calculating the projects at normal speed, no matter what processor you use:)

I think HT on the i7 is a whole different HT than the old P4 HT. It's calculating the same speed for me on all 8 projects so I don't see it being a mere 15% or w/e.

5 minutes ago, my server and my Core i7 both had 300-301 for "average work done." My server just jumped up to 315. Core i7, clock for clock, is slightly faster than the Xeon 5310; however, the 5310 has 12.8 billion clocks per second while my Core i7 has 11.2 billion clocks per second. They're pretty damn close. I'll know more in about a month. ;)

Each of the i7 920 8 threads are running projects at the same speed. I was only able to get my Q6600 overclocked to 3.2GHz while the i7 920 is at 3.8GHz WCG stable. My 920 is WC with what I'll call left over parts. Maybe with a better radiator I can hit 4GHz or better.

I think they do update 24hrs after the first result has been back... I think.

Have sent two results back for now, and also no points or anything. Will know more in a day.

I started planning for a new Q6600 machine a couple of weeks ago. Then I found this link.

http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=hosts&proj=bwcg

You get this link by clicking on Host in the left navigation bar. Since I wanted an idea what the best machine was day to day I sorted by Yesterday. When I scrolled down I saw my i7 920 in the 27th position. That changed my mind so now I'm working on another 920. I don't think I have the money for a Harpertown.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the reason the user names don't show up here or under Hosts is that the default is hidden. At the bottom of the My Profile page you need to check BOINC Show Hosts:.

My i7 rig has been running non stop 100% load and I see about 64C load with a 25C ambient and this is with a Mugen2 in an A900 case. I don't want to OC it with those temps.

Looking at a waterblock from fstfrddy now. I'll probably convert it over to LC in the next month depending on other work I need to do.

CD what clocks on the i7. Would dropping the clock on the i7 hurt my performance as far as crunching a lot? Temps during the day are starting to get scorching here in Miami and when I come back home after work the max real temp recorded are starting to get high. I think I will have to drop the clock a few MHZ and drop the voltage see if it stays any cooler. What do you think?

After it has updated:rolleyes: I know I have sent back two because I was monitoring it.
But I dunno, I'm new to this, maybe there is an option to see it. Anyone?

CyberDruid: what box is this? http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/stat/viewMemberInfo.do?userName=OriginalCyberDruid

is it the Q6600? i would be suprized if it was since its only doing a little bit better than my dual core.. which one is your Q6600, and which one is your i7?

wait no arrg i am reading it wrong.. hmm average points per hour of runtime... i guess that only shows per core......
I have no idea what those stats pertain to. Seems to be an average of all my machines. Lately I have been running the Skulltrail with 2 x X5470 @ 4.1 LC which pulls a solid 3 hours on HCC and FCC units and the i7 @ 2.8something(turbo) on air which pulls about 5-1/2 hours on the same units. When I try and run the QX9650 HTPC 24/7 the wife turns it off at odd times of the day or night so I gave up on it. Had to shut down the QX9650 and the X3320 in the shop as the noise was getting on my nerves in a bad way. After I get them sorted and quieted down I'll have them up again.

CD what clocks on the i7. Would dropping the clock on the i7 hurt my performance as far as crunching a lot? Temps during the day are starting to get scorching here in Miami and when I come back home after work the max real temp recorded are starting to get high. I think I will have to drop the clock a few MHZ and drop the voltage see if it stays any cooler. What do you think?
Drop it till you have reasonable temps. HW this expensiveneeds to last as long as possible. I do not want to see anything over 65C on any of my rigs.
