And it runs crazy hot!!!!!!

I ran it for a while, but I found that it pretty well ran the vid card 100% full load 24/7 and still ate up some cpu cycles at the same time.

The SMP beta otoh I find runs probably around a 80% load (based on temperature difference between orthos and SMP beta) so it's not stressing the components quite as much, although I suspect it's putting the memory through just as much work as it does the CPU.
