Looks like for a limited time only I'll be powering on an additional i7 930 (stock) and the SR-2 with (stock L5639's). Not expecting much, but have probably this month in which to make the most of it before it's shut-down again. Sticking the 560Ti on F@H too for a last effort. :)

Thanks bro :respect: Same can be said of everyone else though. Honestly, to the best of my knowledge all my old SandyBridge fleet is still crunching/folding with TPU. So that was a small dream accomplished :D

The 2600K combo I bought from you is the only one I have left and its not leaving peroid! It will remain my one cruncher as long as I can pay my bills LOL

That SB setup I purchased from you is great. It's still doing a strong 6.4k PPD or so @ 4.4GHz and it's running cool & quiet. Love it! :toast:

:rockout: Similar here. Got this one last month of work hence why I'll throw everything I have into WCG for now. Then after that got to drastically cut my power use so will be taking out the power meter again and making some calculations on running costs and PPD/Watt.

Similar to what I've said of [Ion] in the past.. I'll crunch with a toaster if I must, but I'll crunch :roll:

I have herd that those new IB mobile I7's that cadaveca has been reviewing would fit the bill for a LOW wattage cruncher that would probably get around 3.5-4K PPD 8 threads.

These 35w IVB i7s are pretty sweet. I have one in my Thinkpad E430, and, despite being my daily computer that I play games on and haul back and forth to class, I'm still getting 3.7k PPD out of it. If it did nothing but crunch, I think it would get 4k easy. It has a DC power draw of about 41w with the screen off, so I'd imagine that it would be just over 50w AC as a desktop :toast:

Hmm.. might check that out. My only reservation is that Haswell is round the corner and that should also be a big improvement in power use.

You have piqued my interest. Gonna start looking around for the prices. What model/speed is this i7 you're talking about?

Core i7 3612QM

It does 2.8GHz on all 8 threads for 31w (according to ThrottleStop and CPUID Hardware Monitor). Or, what the i7-920 does at stock, but with 100w less.

Here's my new AMD X2:

An X2 5600+ on some cheap Compaq board. The stock cooler was a 1-inch-thick Aluminum thing with a fan that spun at about 12 RPM that kept the CPU to ~80C under load. I've replaced it (for now) with a copper heatsink from a Pentium D. It's cable-tied on and keeps it at about 65C. If anyone has a stock AMD heatpipe heatsink or similar, I'd love one!

A lot of people have "unlimited" electricity. Weather you believe it or not, the more average electricity each student uses the more likely that they're going to increase the price of on-campus housing. It's a balance and I found that living off campus while I was going to college was actually cheaper than paying for a dorm room (including heat, electricity, rent, food, and internet). It was also something I paid monthly so it didn't contribute to my debt like tuition did.

That's folding.

Well my next cruncher is coming along. I have it in a temp old case with a temp 450w psu. I need to pick up a psu with 2 pcie connectors. The 450 w I have with it only has 2 x 4 pin molex leads with 4 connectors each. With the fans, hdd and optical drive it just isn't enough connectors to use adapters to run the gpu. That and I don't trust running that much on those lines. So I am going to use the psu temporary to get the system up and going and ready to crunch. Then I will shut it down until I find a good cheap psu that will fit the bill. Also the case is pretty much a junk case I had laying around and I am just using it to make it easier to test the system without it strung all over the kitchen table. There is a certain case I want for this one which I will purchase when funds get better. Other then that the system is pretty much together. I have 2 mobos which to chose from. I have a certain thign I want to test each board for and if both fail then I am going to use the cheaper of the 2 boards for my cruncher.

Hey guys with the cooler months coming... I'm going to kick it up a notch! :toast: I'll be adding my 2600k @ 4.5GHz in mine, and my wife's bedroom. I'm also hoping to upgrade my daughters pc (Q9550) around Christmas to a newer faster x4 or x6 processor. I've also cranked production up on my other rigs, and started a few more up. I'm going to push for 40-50+ PPD. I'd like to get a supercomputer like Buck's, but the wife would really kill me..lol

Sweet man. Even though it has gotten alot cooler here now I still have my A/c going. LOL I have 3 crunchers in my bedroom and if I shut the a.c down it does get kinda warm in there. The other three crunchers live a cool life spread out in the Living room.

Well my next cruncher is coming along. I have it in a temp old case with a temp 450w psu. I need to pick up a psu with 2 pcie connectors. The 450 w I have with it only has 2 x 4 pin molex leads with 4 connectors each. With the fans, hdd and optical drive it just isn't enough connectors to use adapters to run the gpu. That and I don't trust running that much on those lines. So I am going to use the psu temporary to get the system up and going and ready to crunch. Then I will shut it down until I find a good cheap psu that will fit the bill. Also the case is pretty much a junk case I had laying around and I am just using it to make it easier to test the system without it strung all over the kitchen table. There is a certain case I want for this one which I will purchase when funds get better. Other then that the system is pretty much together. I have 2 mobos which to chose from. I have a certain thign I want to test each board for and if both fail then I am going to use the cheaper of the 2 boards for my cruncher.
What is this new cruncher? :toast:

Amazing, that's great to hear! :rockout:
My 2600k does 6k+ PPD on its own--its an amazing CPU.
I'd imagine that an X4 or X6 wouldn't be tangibly faster than that Q9550--I'd say go for a FX-8 or i7 or leav it alone.
If you can double your PPD over the next few months that would be sweet! :rockout:


I'm probably going to be selling my parents' old computer (C2D E6550) and perhaps my AMD X2 5000+ as well...between the two, that should be ~$280 or so. Maybe a bit more. Either way, it would be about enough to get a FX-8 or another i7 to add to the farm. Or 3 GTX460s for FAH :toast:

x2 555 that unlocks and I will oc it to where my current one is at. Should be good for atleast 3k ppd point bump. Which should put me close to the 25k ppd mark. I also may put another low power matx cruncher up to replace the A64 x2 rig. Which should put me in the 26 to 28k range. :toast:

Sweet! :toast:
The X4 965BE I has does ~3k PPD @ stock, so the unlocked 555 should do nicely.

:eek:
I'm really gonna have to get a FX-8...with the 920, I should be at ~21k or so, and the dual cores should do ~2.5-3k combined. So then ~24k....or ~26k with a FX-8120 OCed :toast:
