    Nice work on the stomp and increase in output team :cool:

    My own output should hopefully be increasing soon. Will hopefully get my lappy running again when I get back onshore - Fedex should be speeding the new fan across the Atlantic as we speak ($35 + $13 shipping for a little CPU fan :eek: ), should arrive in time for my return next Friday.

    Will also be fetching down the long lost bits for my other P4 rig (2.4GHz Northwood) from Shetland when I go up to visit, so that should be up and running by the weekend after. I will also be borging big bro's PC whilst I am up so I should get a few points from that (won't be on that much but every little helps).

    I am also doing quite a bit of offshore work at the moment so it shouldn't be too long until I get enough cash together to buy another rig :D (not sure whether to buy a cheap one soon, or save up a bit and get a sooper dooper jobbie).

    Stan :)

    You can't go far wrong with an Opteron 146 for the money mate. Couple it with a gig of ram, a decent cooler and a tidy psu and you've got the makings of a nicely overclockable Folder. Either that or the other pick for cpu has to be a 3800+ X2 for a shade over 200 notes. I reckon these have got decent overclock potential for the money too and obviously can handle two woos at once!

    Reckon he should leave it on for a month tbh seeing you've waited that long :D

    I'd just like to mention Walter_Anderson, he's only a couple of hundred points (or secs in terms of ppd) of stomping me, great output last month of 26,347 points for 162 WU's :eek:

    I'm sure that took me a couple of months.

    But well done mate ;)

    Welcome to the new peeps and thanks for the news Rich:)

    My Opteron 146 CABYE will be up early next week I hope, so there'll be another cruncher to the cause.

    Hopefully I'll get through more on that than I do on the Barton.

    One on my worst weeks for production, the shame, stupid electricity companies [​IMG]. I just had a 1200 point dump that
    hasn't shown up here, you could have waited another hour or so Rich [​IMG].

    Oh well, at least i got a good headstart for next week, thanks for the news Rich

    unlucky - i'm either gonna hold on for someone selling a manchester second hand or wait and see what comes out on the next socket - the early chips always seem to be worth the money these days while they are still trying to get the public really interested :o
