Since it really takes about 10 days for systems to completely spool up, we need to get people started, well, 10 days before this starts. And sandbagging actually hurts spooling, IMHO.

But SCC and Linux is good ;) and most jobs doesn’t need a replica once you have been on it for a few days and proven yourself. My 3900X just passed the last 3950X in the average ranking. That said yes get the rigs going some days before, MCM at least a week.

As much as I enjoy crunching, it's getting too warm in my place. I've got a fan in the window, it's 46°F outside, and still too much. After the challenge is over I'll pick the cooler running of the two dualies and leave that going.

Try this LINK.
Edit: at the time of this edit there are 1 day and 1 hour left of the challenge and SCC is drying out. My 40K 3900X will run empty in 12 hours, the 2700Xs will last a bit longer. We are 9 hours away from the 6th place so I think that we make it. Well done all. :toast:
