I got 2 6988's.

@SugarJ Did you do a corehack to get bigadv?

I have not done a corehack. My current CPU PPD is about 43k, IIRC. I'll have to check when I get home.

I used to get bigadv units, but they finally disabled it for anyone with less than 16 cores a month or so back.

I don't think the Kraken wrapper would help in 2P cases, from what I have seen is more for the the 4P system. For me to get those chips at 3.6 I would need water cooling, in my case probably 2 x H60. It starts to become complicated. I'll look how feasible this is. But what about getting just simple smp units in my case? I would have to run 2 separate VMs with each one with -SMP 12 flag?

Never run more than one CPU client ever. Your PPD will drop like a rock. Just a single VM w/ 24 threads. I would also still suggest installing The Kraken wrapper.

True that thekraken was optimized for MP, but it should still help DP systems quite a bit. It even helps UP systems in many cases.

In other news, all four of my GPU clients are working on P8018 right now. That's takes my GPU PPD from about 30k to about 45k. I <3 those projects!

I'll second that about using thekraken on most if not all systems. even if it doesn't make a noticeable difference it shouldn't slow it down. (just installed it on a 2p LGA 771 system, it should drop the frame times.)

I recently got my hands on a D5400XS and a bunch of S771 Xeons to play with this winter, everything from Dempsey to Harpertown. Been wanting one of those for a long time! Too bad used QX9775's are still a mint.

I wanted a Skulltrail so bad when it was released. There are a couple of QX9775 on eBay for ~ $250 each. Still outrageous for a C2Q.

I actually picked up two identical systems, They are Supermicro X7DWE boards with 2xL5420's and 2x2GB dimm's. I have done the BSEL mod to them bumping them from 2.5GHz to 3.0GHz. Currently one of them is having some problems with heat, but I think I just need to clean and re-seat the heatsink's. Each system can produce between 15K and 30K, depending on the WU's, typically I see about 20K.
