Cleaner setup? But I don't think it's worth the 600$ price tag it warrants.

In a way you're right - I guess it sort of depends what you're using them for. But the X5677's are earmarked for my server to replace the comparatively sluggish E5530's. I like them for their high stock clock speed because I can't (and wouldn't for that matter) OC the server.

If only I didn't have that pesky mortgage and new baby boy on the way to worry about!
ATCS 840, mortgage, new baby boy. Hold up. Are we the same person? Are you dashingly handsome too?

Tell me about it! Truth be told, I never thought I would be able to afford an SR-2. If anything I was hoping just to be able to do a few minor upgrades to my existing infrastructure this year. But fortune smiled upon me, and I recently won a new contract that has, well, it's paid the bills. So the SR-2 is my way of saying to myself, "Good job mate - and you're dashingly handsome to boot!"

I've had everything for a few weeks, but it's all still in boxes. I'm hoping that with the baby's health scare in the rearview mirror and the holidays coming up that I'll be able to at least get started on the project soon. As for the shoehorning, I have not taken a single measurement yet but my blind optimism is guiding me with reckless and beautiful abandon.

Well, if I asked my wife, she would probably say yes. Anyone else.. probably not.

Ditto. It's settled then - we're definitely the same person.

I always thought you two were seperated at birth...this just confirms it.

And your mothers too. Don't forget them.

Your PPD seems pretty similar too, funny enough.

Well, I have the SR-2 set up with my X5677's, but I haven't gotten it folding yet because I'm having too much fun benching with it! Over the next week or so, I should start posting some hwbot scores which will include several new hardware records. Fun!
