On the really old front, I have a Sempron 2600+ (on a K8V-X SE) with 2x256MB DDR400 and a Pentium E5400 (on a EP43-UD3L) with 2x1GB DDR2-800. I also have my trusty Pentium III 450 (on a P3B-F), but I don't think that qualifies for anything.
Slightly newer, a Phenom II X6 1055T (on a 890GPA-UD3H) and 2x4GB DDR3-1333.
Is it worthwhile for me to run anything on these? If so, what OS would you guys suggest?
Everything except the PIII will fit into it's respective dogpile stage for sure JD. Your daily DDR4 rigs can likely fit into some of those (DDR4) stages also if your game. I'm thinking Win 7 64 stripped down a bit would likely be better for the dogpile stages, but any score helps.
Alright, I'll see what I can pull off then. They all have stock cooling, so not sure if I can coax much speed out of them clockwise, but I can throw a 120mm fan overtop at least.
And for "daily" ones, mostly just my servers which I'd rather not tinker with stability-wise. My desktop's 6850k is mildly OC'd to 4.2GHz, so I guess I can do a couple things on it to just help a little bit.
Ahhh yes, Val is right of course. There will be no fun with the P3B-F, I'm afraid. Not until the Country Cup maybe...
And don't fret the cooling. I'm just clamping an AIO on everything - so nothing fancy here either.
edit - I'm getting my IC7-Max rigged up now, so I'll go for a backup S478 score for Stage 1.6 in addition to the one I have planned for S754, in case JD is able to grab a S754 score and we still need a third.
