Here's what a 4p opty can do to a 6903

http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.ph...=18788#p188080

and a OC MC on a 6901

PCCStudent is pretty much in the same place I am he has all the equipment needed to do a simple cost effective switch that should keep him very completive for another year or 2. And the choice of going to the Gulftowns appears to be the most cost effective at this time.
I agree with you 100%

After rereading PCCstudents posts, Gulftowns are his best choice. He might be able to get some cheaper ones by checking the FS threads here and on other sites or even cough...cough...ebay.

This is the formula I've always used for F@H hardware. 10% will buy AMD and 10% will buy Intel no matter what. The 80% will get whatever hardware they can afford that will give them the results that they want.

I want to be able to do this 12 core work so if this is a desire then the Gulftowns in my existing i7-930 rigs would be best but I think what K4 was saying in a round about way is I can't even manage to keep my i7-930's running 24/7. It is not due to lack of desire but simply cost and more so how intolerable it makes the room that these rigs in as far as temperature. My conclusion is I have to figure a way to budget this extra AC unit (both purchase and cost to run it,and then of course the power to fold with) when I do have a limited income. If I do cut out a lot of other things it would be possible to get the Gulftowns,the AC and run 24/7 but there would be sacrafice. Not a cheap hobby when you have the drive to move above 2.5 million a month.

I know the SR-2 is a Xeon board but is it compatible with 980x?

No,SR-2's use a Xeon version of the i7 and there are technical differences in the cpu's. I could put the 980 on my ASUS P6X58D-Preminums but those 980's are up near 1000.00 or so (if I remember right)

dont worry about 980x's
Go for a 970, save some money, overclock it (not hard to do), and fold

I run 2 - 980X and 2 - 970's the 980X's are better at OCing than the 970's 1 - 970 will do 4.15Ghz folding stable and the other will do 4.35 Folding stable both on the edge of of high heat range in winter. Summer 4.1 Ghz is the max on both. The 2 980X's will do 4.4Ghz folding stable winter and 4.3Ghz summer. Is the 980X worth the extra $630, only for e-peen they are not worth it for folding. My next purchase is going to be a 970 to replace the 1 - 920 I have running.

you can use a i7 chip on the SR-2 i believe but not if you put 2 CPUs on the board, the Xeon chips have 2 QPI links, one to the northbridge each, and one to the other CPU for quick cross-CPU interaction, but never tried myself i just got myself some 5650 Xeons and OCed the hell out of them (only possible on the SR-2 ofcourse)
