oh.. no, i'm not saying that the springdale is better than canterwood. i just said that abit's IS7 outperformed most canterwoods. canterwood is definitely more superior, especially featurewise. what i meant to state is that the performance gain (6100mb/s from 5900mb/s memory bandwidth) PAT offers is...

apple always seems to leave a loophole for themselves. when they say "three times (or twice as) quieter", most likely they mean quieter by 9db (or 6db), and not actually halving the G4's db value. ugh.

personally, i'd get the 2.4C and o'c it over 3ghz. but that's just me. jamoore9, extremetech, digit-life, and xbitlabs also have articles up showing that the p4 3.2ghz ( and sometimes even a 2.8C) kicks 3200+'s butt. i'm just saying this because most ppl don't think high of thg anymore. also that 'b...

... you might want to consider limiting the CPU usage in order to prevent possible thermal problems and premature failure of components. Some of the machines could easily be put in places that prevent good airflow. i can understand that last bit... but i've never noticed a temperature rise of more ...

900 people died recently in southeast india because of 42C weather (and hence, lack of rain and water supply). its averaging around 38 here now a days.

er...almost 13 hours since the search started, and still no sign of TRC-13. :(

um... guys, what do you think of a duron 1400+? i saw at newegg a pc-chips motherboard with a onboard duron 1400+ for $81. i was thinking of maybe getting a couple of these and see how they fold. two nodes and one powersupply would run $237 shipped.

Question: my first two WU's took over 24 hours to complete, but only got me 15 points each. Does that seem a bit low to you? It was discouraging enough for me to put folding on hold for a while. mine's a bit stingy on the points and slow too (24mins a frame), but i keep to folding since every littl...
