Yes - you should be able to do some serious damage with that rig.
I will say, though, that for me, the point of benching a machine like Quicksilver is to force yourself to learn its little intricacies inside and out. For example, what's the optimal IOH width? What type of interleaving works best with parallel processes? And what order should the interleaving go in? These are all questions to which I now have answers for Quicksilver, yet none that I would have even bothered to ask if not for the benchmarking. Even if all this translates into only marginal improvements in PPD - that's okay because I learned something and I had fun doing it, and besides - every point counts.
