Cheers buddy !

You can see what your smp client does by reading the startup log.

It will say : " Mapping NT from 8 to 8 " , or "mapping NT from 12 to 12" .....that's threads.

Setting the 'thread count' to an odd number doesn't work.It's multiples of 2 , so smp -9 is actually smp -8.

Once I've got this rig running again Imma be playing around more.
Is that a function of Hyperthreading? i.e. it works on a full core + hyperthread or not at all? i.e. can you set the affinity on a quad core i5 to 3?

So...I got my 3770K up and running last night and up to 4.5Ghz @ 1.3V (4.6Ghz @ 1.35 worked fine, but temps were up near 90C...too hot for a chip that will be pegged 100% of the time). Anyway, the chip is doing about 22-23K PPD. This sounds normal for an i7, right? BTW, this was without any GPU workload on the processor. I added a slot for my 5870 this morning, so I guess I'll see what that brings the i7 down to, if any.

What are all your i7's doing? Excluding the 3930's and 3960's of the world, of course

As of right now my i7 2700k is getting about 12,800 PPD. Running 6 threads of the 8.
Compared to the GPU's, not many PPD. I Also run an H100 cpu cooler at medium setting. At theh moment with the heat here it is sitting at 63 degrees. During cooler times its about 56. Also the unit is in the basement, under an open window. Hope that helps. I would be a little concerned at 90:sad:.

My 3770K (at 4.4GHz) give me around 15K PPD with 6 threads out of 8 since i'm running 2 GPUs with it.

What did you finally achieve with yours and the 5870?

Hmm, weird. I switched the 5870 for the 650Ti Boost last night, and I just checked FAH this morning, and the CPU slot had disappeared.

Anyway, last I checked, the 3770K was doing 23K PPD, and the 5870 was doing about 15K.

The 650Ti Boost does about 35K PPD, I guess I'll see what the CPU drops down to, if any.

Man, I can't wait to get my new SLI setup back again so that production ramps up once more.
