I think I will acquire one but I won't have it running until winter. Gotta wait for BD. (also have to "acquire" slowly so I don't give the wife a heart attack)

step 1 - look up how cheap duallie boards are vs sr2's for exemple...
or ask mr penguin,im sure he can hook you up
step 2 - 16 cores should and probably will be competitively priced.
step 3 - take the wife/gf/significant other out for a dinner of sorts
and slowly insert the info there,preferably after a few drinks :LD

BD could have 1 billion cores but it won't matter until they release it to market. As for the magny-cours, they are getting more delicious by the minute. If I could get 8 units of 6172s for $500.0 each, is that a good deal?

Just bought the wife a new SUV, she will only complain for a short while when I start another folding build. At least I am not spending my hard earned cash on weed, crack and other things that I cannot sell when I am done with them. (although you would have a strong case calling folding an addiction)

Straight from Kasson, about the insanely high points:

Quote:
For the moment we'll take 6903 down a notch. We're thinking more broadly about how we balance points on different parts of the FAH project. This process of examination may or may not result in changes (and the P6903 thread isn't the place to discuss such things), but we want to let you know that we are thinking about the challenges here.

Base points now 28384
Base points were originally 30964.

Got one, finally.
15:55, 520k ppd through 5%

-And I got my mobo tray exteneded, holes drilled, and DOH, didnt have a "handle" for the tap. Got 3 140mm fans mounted in place of the 5 80's but I think I might use the stocks on the back of the rig to suck the air out, couple on the psu mount, stock place for 2 above io plate and maybe another in place of some pci cards....

So far though its folding at 47c wich aint bad.

Don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, from tPU; EVGA Readies Dual-LGA2011 X79 Motherboard | techPowerUp
Quote:
At this year's Computex event, we were treated to socket LGA2011 motherboards by various motherboard manufacturers, except EVGA. The company makes some of the highest grade enthusiast motherboards in the Intel platform, and so it was missed. It is however, said to be working on a monstrous dual-socket LGA2011 motherboard based on the Intel X79 chipset, that would replace its dual-socket LGA1366 EVGA SR-2.

Just imagine, such a monstrosity would combine two six/eight/twelve-core LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E processors with eight channels of DDR3 memory, and four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (electrical x16) links to drive its graphics cards and connectivity. EVGA said that it will have single-socket LGA2011 motherboards by the time the platform launches, and this dual-LGA2011 about a month later.
Should make for some -bigbeta fun...
