I was running a TPF of 37 minutes until I realized (at 67% of my first WU) that I was running the old core Version 2.19. I took a risk and stopped work, trashed the core , and it downloaded Version 2.22 and resumed work successfully! With the new core version I saw a reduced TPF of (average) 35 minutes with my 980x @3.7GHz.

Points for my first 2684 WU: 70592 / 2.56 days = 27575 PPD (will increase now that I've updated the core to 2.22).

Things I learned:
- having both "-advmethods" and "-bigadv" flags does not hinder performance
- you can start/stop work without errors *knocks on wood*
- only uses about 1GB RAM at any one time (12 threads)
- Version 2.22 significantly better than 2.19

Thanks Zero. I'll get to the beginner's guide in a week or so just in case Stanford decides to cut off Windows bigadv or changes something.

Updated my core from 2.19 to 2.22, about 2,000 or so increase in ppd.

You might want to check stability. Try LinX 0.64 for 4 or 5 hours and see what happens, and keep a close eye on temps. On the i7 860 you don't want any cores going over 85 celsius consistently under LinX. Use 3072MB of memory to ensure that memory is being tested too.

Folding works at about 10 celsius lower than LinX from my experiences.

I have done 3 BigAdv units and have two more coming today and tomorrow and I haven't had any issues even having restarted two boxes due to Windows updates.

Right now TPF on my i7 860 @ 3.866Ghz (203.5*19) is around 47:00 with RAM at 1624mhz and 43:50 on my i7 920 @ 4.05 Ghz (202.5*20). These are the only two boxes I have that show greater PPD with BigAdv vs. regular A3 SMP clients. The I7 920 is also running 3xGPU clients, while the i7 860 is running none. I find the more limited memory bandwidth of the i7 8x0 series has a bigger negative impact when running GPU clients concurrently.

On another note, those i7 875Ks overclock nicely compared to the i7 860. I was ready to throw my EVGA P55 FTW out the window, but bought one of these and out of the box, at LESS than stock core voltage I have it at 4.0 ghz (25*160) running flawlessly at temps under 83 celsius in LinX with a crappy Coolermaster Hyper 212+. Easiest I7 OC I've ever had. I might upgrade cooling and go for more sometime soon, and put that box back on BigAdv.
