If you game, you'd get a really nice boost if you hit 3.4-3.6ghz.



Well 4.5Ghz is fighting me hard. I can get into windows and run a few AIDA64 benches but eventually she shuts down. I feel as if I'm going to cook her but man does she fly on those benchmarks at 4.5. biggrin.gif

Ok. Every AIDA64 bench I do, it shows the X5560 ahead of me most of the time. So, I'm thinking of getting an X5560/X5570 just to do another comparo. tongue.gif

Nothing better than a Xeon that is a badass overclocker. It makes me happy to see something like that.

Thanks for posing your benchmarks as well. Very neat.

Yea dual x5660s would only offer extra benefits if you can oc them and the only board you can oc them in is the evga sr-2 and good luck finding one for under $500 lol

ok you do realise the reason the x5560 is ahead of you right! Most if not all of those are with 2 thats TWO of them lol as most x5560's are in or on server boards and they have two cpu sockets so if you are right behind the x5560 x 8 core results you are doing dam good son lol

Hmmm ok. So those are probably two stock speed cpu's? Still would like to see what the 95w versions can do.

yeah! dam that would stink, all this time you are trying to beat a score that was what you thought one chip, bet you were like man what clock was this guy running! lol

Dual x5660 24 threads on a folding SMP work unit will do around 80,000 points per day (PPD), a q6600 6 or 7,000 PPD a AMD 1045T @ 3.5 ghz 10,000 PPD
My 48 core AMD 4 processors 12 core each 175,000PPD and my AMD 4 x 6 24 core does around the same as my dual x5660 80,000 PPD or so.
All those are standard work units. There sre special work units for 24 core or more that will net 170,000 on 24 and 350,000PPD or much more with 4 processor depending on CPUs.
Unless you are doing folding at home or BOINC it will not be much use to you.
At this point in time for multi socket bang for the buck AMD 4 processor is the way to go.Overclocking is possible with the modded bios that is out there. (Supermicro boards)
But if you do have deep pockets Intel quad socket e5-4560 makes a nice work horse and the chips are showing up on ebay used.but 3500$ is not in my budget
There are people overclocking them too not sure how they are doing it. But with the special WUs one million PPD are possible.

Once this BOINC contest is over in a few days, I will do some benching.
