    Do you guys think I could get my i3 2130m and i7 4770k on Linux and spooled up in time for the challenge? I would be cutting it close.

    My X2 550 is a dedicated cruncher now. Performance/watt as an overall system isn't very good, but it's still science (and my room is much warmer now).

    (I meant whether or not the 965 was worth it. It just depends. The X2 is only good for 2000-3000 ppd)

    That seems low. My dedicated i3s get about 1.6-1.8k PPD on Windows. The one I use as a gamer gets less, obviously. My Core 2 T9600 is a 2.8GHz C2D and it gets about 1.1k on Windows....

    2.2ghz sandy bridge i3 2 cores 4 threads. Running at 100%. Its a laptop cpu so I didn't think much of it. Maybe Linux will substantially increase production.



    And if any of the newer members are interested, we have our own WCG sub channel in the TPU team speak channel. Time zones can get crazy since we are all around the world.
    Download ts3 here.
    Install.
    Open.
    Click "Connections" in the top left hand corner. A little menu will pop out. In the server address put "ts21.gamerservers.com:9207" and type in a desired name; leave the server password blank.
    Join desired subchannel(WCG Channel)

    Add a $10 Google Play Gift Card to the prize pool. (US Only because I think that's a limitation of these cards).

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Alright guys I am hoping to at the very least have my 2 main crunchers fired back up either sunday or Monday. I maybe a day or so late on the beginning of the challenge but I am trying to lend the team a hand.

    I'm waiting :rolleyes:

    I have another i7-920 coming tomorrow, and if I can convince it to run on my spare 300w PSU then it'll be up---if not, I'll temporarily pull down the C2Q.

    And since I've switched back to FAAH, PPD should be up too :toast:

    I think I have a spare that I can pick up when I go home next, and if not, I can always spick up some locally for cheap, but there's only so much that I can fit into the dorm room :p
