Glad to hear. TBH. Windows isn't great for folding, and people running it in VM's? I just don't see why they don't just dual boot Windows and Linux.

I am blaming you guys for my last couple of purchases, I have an duel socket intel motherboard coming and I also have just purchased two xeon x5570 processors. Just giving you the heads up my wife is going to be pissed LOL, so far 450 bucks for the board and two processors smile.gif hope I didn't get ripped off

That should be a nice setup; however, there is some bad news. At stock, those chips will perform slightly better than a OC'ed 2600k. So, with the update, we can assume the deadlines will be changed as to prevent a core hacked i7 from completing bigadv units and so yours may not be capable either.

very small update, 4 x 6174 (stock) with 16 sticks of ram takes up 520 watts.

Wow, Really I didn't think they would be beat down by an 2600k, I was thinking that 8 real cores and 16 threads@3.33ghz would be faster then 4cores 8 threads @4.6ghz. Thats sucks all well you live and you learn

My woes continue. Two trips now to Microcenter and two bad power supplies. I picked up one of the 700W modular OCZ supplies a couple weeks ago because they were cheap and in my other two folding rigs they worked great. When I went to power on my SR2 nothing happened. So I plugged the supply into my VIA C7 all in one board which is my component post test board and got nothing.

So I took the 30m one way drive to MC and they give me a hard time about the fact I had already sent in the rebate etc, but finally they agree to exchange it. But because I had already sent in the rebate, of course I get a second 700W OCZ modular and sell it to some guy behind me for $10 less than I paid just to get rid of the bad ju ju. I decide to further break the bad luck and go to the good ole standby. So I pick up the 850W Corsair modular pro that I use in all my "I really care about you" builds. An hour later after fighting rush hour traffic I am home. Open up my corsair and go to install, only to hear something rattling around inside. So I look in and there are plastic pieces from something rattling around inside.

So anyways I am not going to plug in the PSU to a 1.2k system with parts rattling around inside. So I had to drive all the way back down to MC, to get harassed again by CS saying I "must be doing it wrong" just to return it. I didn't want a third receipt from the same transaction.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better and I can actually get this SR2 posted. I have a Corsair 850W being delivered tomorrow from Amazon for a client build, so I guess I am going to cannibalize that for the SR2 and hopefully the guards at MC will have changed over the weekend so I can buy a replacement.

Why folding gods, why!?

212+'s.

Should have picked some up when they were 20$ from NewEgg. Not sure if they still are.

gsa, yeah I went ahead and and splurged on a 4p rig. I went the MC route, recently ordering 4 6174s which should be here early next week. So far, I have the motherboard [/URL and ram.
For those curious, the board only takes up to 1333 ram, so I went for tighter timings.
700

Oh my god........
