OOps realized you are still left with 4 modules so no "sharing" of anything this way so actually better than a 4100. Interesting if they released a 4 module 4 core cpu with a 4.2ghz stock clock
with turbo to say 4.9ghz or so. Now that for $150 would be a great cpu no?
I believe that's going to be the 4170 (except 2 modules), but not 100% sure. I do believe updating the thread scheduler will make a good difference in per core performance. I have talked with a couple of people that are working on their own version of a thread scheduling optimizing program for BD architecture.It will be interesting to see how that turns out.

The temps are lower, just not enough to where I'm comfortable with pumping the voltage needed to stabilize it. The jump in voltage that I need nullifies the lower temps that were gained by disabling the extra cores..Edited by computerparts - 12/12/11 at 11:18pm
