Currently I'm getting around 55 min.
And about the whole "fooling the server" thing... I remember someone saying (was it you Grandpa?) that the guys over at Stanford already found a way to check if I really have the core count I'm reporting, but didn't implement it because they didn't see any harm being done yet. Well, they still haven't done it, and I'm pretty sure they would have if it was an issue.
Also, I don't see any way the results could possibly be different if ran on 8 instead of 12+ cores. If anyone has any solid argument for that, I'll listen, but for now I don't really see any problem with it. I mean, I've seen some posts over at [H] by people with older 12+ thread machines, and they're getting worse TPF than me.
