With recent additions / upgrades, a dying FX64 upgraded to Q8400 and a Pentium 4 and a dead XP2600 upgraded to i7-860's, my LAN is crunching at about 25 days per million credits. :)

Now those are some serious upgrades.

Yes, thank you!

The dying FX64 at 550/day -> Q8400 at 3800/day.
The Pentium 4 at 700/day -> i7-860 at 6600+/day.
The dead xp2600 at 0/day -> i7-860 at 6600+/day.

"Like parts" repair of the "dead or dying" boxes did not seem economically feasible. Some RAM from those redeployed to a utility Pentium D, which seems much "happier" with 3GB RAM.

The i7's run stock parameters except for the Mushkin RAM at 1600 Mhz.

In retrospect, the upgrade to Q8400 was not the best choice in credits/dollar. :( The boxes all needed microATX boards, so upgrade to i7-930 (with 3 channels to RAM) did not seem possible.

The Pentium 4 upgrade is running the same 32-bit Win Vista install, although I am seeing a hang-up every week or so that will cause me to reinstall Windows.

Well it seemed to be taking

Well it seemed to be taking too long to get to the 2,000,000 mark so I picked up a 3-core on sale that is running like lightning for some reason (compared to my others) one of the others needs a new card so it it connect once again too.

But I just hit that 2 million mark here @ Einstien!

Aaah! That feels good. I just made the two million mark for Einstein and recently (May 2) topped 3.5 million for overall BOINC. Here's to many more.


Plus SETI Classic = 21,082 WUs

Today my second year of Einstein crunching is done, reaching 443 466 cobblestones. I hope we will get new and better data from the interferometers, because i think testing the algorithms could be done with less computer power than we are using now. Happy crunching!

May be not much against the big boys but I have just clocked my 1/2 million credit for Einstein and should do my 1 million for Boinc overall in a couple of days.
