Yes Sandy is pretty impressive. Bodes well for LGA2011, if the new socket can build over it.

Buldozer wise, the more I read, the more I beleive it will be a Sandy competitor. I guess it will be nice for pricing, but intel will still be able to charge a mighty premium for LGA2011. I was hoping for a bit more...

I'm excited about these things. I'll get an LGA2011 almost for sure (depends on how bulldozer does), primarily so I can fiddle around with it and secondarily to find a more efficient replacement for the SR-2. My hope is to lower the heat output (and power bill) as I've set my limit to 1.5 kW and I'd like to keep it below that. I'll have to wait until next winter to get one, but the prospects seem bright so I'm just hoping for the best.

I suspect that eventually there will be an "adjustment" in the -bigadv point system... If there is too great a shift in the amount of machines folding -bigadv versus gpu's and lesser cpu's folding smaller wu's, Stanford will either make a change in the point system or restrict the number of large wu's available... Assuming that the data received from crunching smaller wu's is just as important to them as the data received from larger units, a significant reduction in machines folding smaller units will necessitate a change... Reducing the points awarded for crunching larger units would definitely piss off people who have invested large sums of money in high powered machines so I suspect that, as Chris noted the adjustment would be an increase in the points awarded for crunching the smaller wu's... leveling the playing field as it were. This is what I'm hoping anyway... *tries to console his 23 videocards*

12 cores, 24 threads, times two on a server board. but you need unlocked xeons, and those might cost 4 arms and 3 legs but by god theyll spank anything out the watter...

dozer wise, i see some 990fx boards displayed at ces, so its comn!!

Got my 2600k up and running. @ 4.7GHz and ram @ 800MHz 9-9-9-24-1T my TPF of a P6900 is ~25m 50s, which comes out to about 47k PPD. The good thing about this CPU is that if I want to game I can do a -bigadv smp 6 and still have enough processing power to complete a bigadv before the deadline.

4.7.... I hope LGA2011 bring this kind of OC.

Great OC! What multi limit do you have before enabling Internal PLL Overvolt?

I'm getting around 80-82K per WU (40K-ish PPD) after accounting for upload time, same settings (2600K@4.7, 800 9-9-9-24-1). I don't think HFM takes in to account upload time.

What settings did you end up finalizing on?

Folding on my i7 860@3.5 is pitiful in comparison, and it pulls the same 240W from the wall!

I'm getting around 40.5 K PPD with my 2600K @ 4.53 Ghz... can't seem to get her "completely stable" any higher than this. With 2 GTX 260's folding as well I'm still getting around 39K PPD, about 10K higher than I as getting with my I7 920 @ 3.8 Ghz running the same cards...

Well I will be using this system to game on and watch recorded TV so my PPD will drop a bit during the evenings. So I think I should be getting around 40,000 or so PPD.

As for Internal PPL, no idea. I didn't even bother trying to clock anything below 4.7GHz. So I just enabled it.

It isn't exactly the best of CPU's. But it will suffice.
As for the rest of the settings, this pretty much sums it up I think.
