Prime 95, F@H, 3D Mark, F@H, SANDRA, F@h.... depends what sort of testing you want to do, really :)

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 another upgrading to C2D, my stuffs due tommorrow! basically the same system but i went for the E6600 and some absolutly bargin OCZ Platinum from Overclockers 2x 1GB PC2-6400 for £117 inc VAT, which seems to have risen (maybe they listed it at the wrong price :eek: ) Anyway... nice system! cant wait for mine!

This is just so very fast and I haven't even overclocked yet.

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. :rolling:

I just mentioned that i'd got almost everything better than him in my rig and he wasn't happy. :D 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...:D
I also have to say, HD Audio is just so much better! My MP3s have a new life. :)

It seems the ocz ram is back to £115 now, bargain!

Pitch 23rd February, 2007 12:33 PM

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

Yea, What Scott said. All these new monster rigs should be churning out some WU's
