I am here to comment on your 40 K ppd Burnt Powder. That is impressive.
One of my Notfreds clients went down. Well, I finally got the time to tear it down and check for issues. Some Artic Silver found its way to the motherboard. A thorough cleaning and use of ceramic paste and the machine is back folding. Running 1920 ppd WUs on the Notfreds showing anywhere from 3700 to 4500 ppd in Fahmon. The only problem with the Notfreds is that you can not run the GPU clients.
The Squid proxy software gets updated fairly frequently. I suspect one of those updates has caused the issue. The proxy server is a busy production server, so it's fairly risky to attempt a downgrade in proxy software at the moment.
A new Multi Millionaire coming up.
Gilles, you have stepped up production quite well. Getting close to the 30k per day mark.
Topped 700K last month and should best that this month.
I am thinking about rebuilding the gaming machine and using its P5Q/E8500 in the fold.
What would be the advantage of using the i7-860(2.80GHz) over the i7-920(2.66GHz) cpu other than clock speed? Probably use an Asus P7P55 board.
Clockspeed, but also it's motherboard would be chearper than the 1 required of the I7-920.The 860 also requires less power than the bigger brother's platform. Turbo boost is clocks also much higher on the i5/i7 motherboards than it does on socket 1366.
