Your right on it Favu, I have tested with Prime, and many others and it was fine until I folded. Then the tweaking began. I load FAH before I even begin overclocking. That way it is already maxed and warmed up...Plus I don't want to miss any time to gain points.

Looks like my college tutor thinks his new system is so good:

7300GS
Abit board
2Gb DDR2
P4 Single Core (541 i think).
£12 500W Ebuyer el cheapo PSU.
Nice gaming case.

Strange though. I didn't see a HDD.

I just mentioned that i'd got almost everything better than him in my rig and he wasn't happy. I love ruining his day. So he made me research SATA drives and how to install them.

And oh yeah, make those rigs fold people, we seem to be on a charge to the top of the charts but we're been beaten by Team Linux! *cry*

I was just going to post that http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-072-OC was an absolute steal at £117.49, now its £135!

The core 2's do have that my god my computer is doing everything i tell it to instantly factor, yet when overclocked they're even quicker, especially in vista (as i've probably said a many of times now! it really like the dual core)

push these core 2's people, 3 GHz should be no sweat, the p5b will help nicely 50% overclocks on the e6400 are quite common.
which means in terms of folding potential by overclocking you can increase performance by the speed of one of your cores!

(2.13GHz x 2 = 4.26GHz folding power, 50% o/c -> 3.2GHz x 2 = 6.4GHz of folding power so + 2.13GHz!)

As for hard drive speed, does the Hitachi use perpendicular recording ? if so then its equal to the Seagate 7200.10, if it doesnt then the seagate is quicker! i get silly speeds on my raid 0 config

I will push my CPU. When I get home...
I also have to say, HD Audio is just so much better! My MP3s have a new life.

I think the Seagate .10 are the only drives in that price range with perpendicular recording, atleast the larger ones.
