For memory benchmarking, use Everest or Sandra.

In that case, clock speed doesn't matter all that much since it's not the limiting factor. Most WUs, however, are sensitive to clock speed, and most of the time a faster system will chew through WUs more quickly.

Unfortunately, other benchmarks do not capture the complexities of the wide range of WUs and their particular requirements.
then i guess when my quad gets here it will be alot faster

On L2-dependant WUs, absolutely. On other WUs, it may be a little slower per core unless you can match the OC of your CPU. Of course, the quad will be able to do twice as much work than the dual core give or take, depending on what limits the WU (L2 vs. clock speed).

i just got bored last night and removed everything from my case and decided to see if stock cooler does any good, so i left OC and loaded into the bios and waited at the hardware config. i sat there and watched the temp slowly go from 48c to 53c, at that point i stocked the cpu.
1.83ghz 1.125v, memory 1:1 ddr2-533 3-3-3-10 2.0v

did the difference in memory timing make the difference? btw the work unit was a 2604, i completed 1% every 16mins give or take a second. same on both speeds


whats wrong here?
Hi Skullz,

Here's an excellent review/discussion on folding. Knitelife put together some amazing thoughts and results with his folding rigs. It's a good read:
