    Wow!

    I finally got one of my i7 web servers running F@H as it is currently sat dormant waiting for sites to be migrated to it.

    The first WU was a standard unit, but the second must be a BigADV as it is going to take a few days, and has a credit of 50000+ :)

    Just hope one of my Xeons or my Phenom X6 picks one up soon too....

    Strange, since enabling -bigadv on a couple of my clients I have had nothing but big WU's. I am talking about 4 clients for the last two weeks (each client takes about 3 days to fold the big WU's).

    make sure you can do them within the dead lines (3 days ?)

    Phenoms X6 can't do them unless you patched it to make your client think its got 8 threads to work with

    Would I get one one on a xeon?

    How do I patch for an x6?

    if you have 8 usable threads (like Dual I7 based Quad Xeons or dual 6 core Xeons or high clocked I7 6 core)

    give us your spec of the systems cpu speeds as well

    Phenoms X6 i mite not bother as they are about the same speed as an I7 930 clocked at 3.8ghz (that's if both was clocked at the same speed)

    AMD Phenom II X6 1090T overclocked to 4GHz
    Asus ROG Crosshair IV Formula
    8GB Corsair Dominator 1600MHz 8/8/8/24 - CMD4GX3M2B1600C8

    Xeon X3430 @ 2.4GHz
    8GB DDR3 1333MHz 9/9/9/24

    Are these good enough? Or should I just rely on the i7 server for BigADV?

    the X6 @ 4ghz but you need some sort of patch to make the folding at home client think you got 8 threads (not searched for it my self as not needed)

    is it an dual Quad x3430 or not as one will not be ale to do bigadv work units, you can still do normal SMP work units on it

    There are three separate servers each with just the one xeon each.

    I will keep as I am for the time being then, as my X6 is my daily driver, so can't be sure it will meet deadlines.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have a couple of servers with the 3430's in them, unfortunately they only have 4 cores so won't do bigadv, for that you would need the 3440 at a minimum.
