i have been playing with it and cant seem to get my GPU to help out but it might not be worth it since my GPU is a midrange card so im not sure if it will do nearly as much work as my CPU.
with some spare time and once i get a better heatsink i am going to look into trying to do a small OC. nothing hardcore, but im researching heatsinks while i wait for the CoolerMaster Hyper T4 to come out. if its a good cooler then ill get it and if the suggestion is unanimous then ill save up for something like a Thermalright TRUE 120
If you're looking for a good air cooler, I'd say go with the Hyper 212+. Its about the best air cooler on the market and for the price (you can usually catch them on sale for about $30), you can't beat it! This is what I have on my 2500k Team Competition rig, OCed 4.78GHz and my temps never go over 55C. They really are an awesome cooler!
Also, I got my 2700k, 3570k and 2500k rigs all folding in the v7 client last night. Looks like my PPD has gone up quite a bit from the change over (from v6.34). Overall it looks like I've picked up about 30k - 35k PPD across all the rigs!!!! The 2700k and the 3570k are both running in a VM and the 2500k is running Ubuntu 10.10 native. The 2500k is the biggest supprise, I was averaging about 23k PPD and now it looks like it will be closer to 50k PPD, but I'll have to watch it for a few days just to be sure. Anyway it goes, my PPD has gone up, so I'm excited!!!
