    Budget, SandyB-E may well be a monster but i pretty much made up my mind when i found out
    The pricing of Core i7-3930K has been confirmed at US$560
    back around late July.........Hence, the following post.

    If not, i'll likely only get one for the sake of seeing what she's got.......But the farm will have to get a re-think.
    I still plan on getting one (1) but sadly there won't be a fleet of them.

    VT-d is not virtualization. It's DMA access to hardware . I know it allows you to forward PCI/PCIe cards and the like to the vm.

    Just curious... isn't 1.44v on the very high side of what is recommended "safe"? Just seems like a lot. I know folks run their 2600k cpus higher than 1.35v and have seen no ill effects as of yet and I just figured the voltage requirements would be in a similar range for SB-E.

    Intel docs state 1.4v max. I'm running 1.53v right now, but on high end water. I have seen people state to not go past 1.6v unless you are going sub zero. Right now no one really knows what is safe, so in order to be "safe" you should stick to the Intel spec. Intel has been known to raise their specs on safe voltage before though.

    Seems a few people are running between 1.35 and 1.5+ here and on other sites. If I am not mistaken CJ145 is running 1.53v core. I wonder how his CPU is?

    These are just testing clocks, not what I will be running 24/7. It will do 4.6GHz at a safer 1.35v all day long so that is what I will set it to. I just wanted to see what it would do at maximum clocks on Bigadv before they go away... at least for < 16 cores.

    So far it has run folding for over 24 hours and not had one failure at current settings (4857.7MHz and 1.44V). 4.9GHz would fail OCCT and P95 for some reason even at 1.5v and I don't want to push it further than that on Corsair water cooling. I would push it if I had custom W/C though just to see if it could do 5GHz, even though I was still far away from "i7-3930K enabled thermal throttling at 86°C". It folds consistently at the current speeds and voltages at 68-72°C. The higher temps in my logs above were from running small data sets in OCCT.

    Lets have some discussion on it though, what does everyone think would be a good safe voltage/temperature limit for 24/7 folding and not burning out the cpu in 30 days?

    So I got a non big bigadv unit this time on my machine. Ubuntu 10.10 VM on my 3930k at 4.9GHz with 2133MHz cl9 memory.

    Code:
    Project ID: 6901
     Core: GRO-A5
     Credit: 7164
     Frames: 100
    
    
     Name: SB-E Hex VM
     Path: \\vmvmvmvm\FAH\
     Number of Frames Observed: 82
    
     Min. Time / Frame : 00:14:44 - 87,121.5 PPD
     Avg. Time / Frame : 00:14:53 - 85,807.8 PPD
     Cur. Time / Frame : 00:15:02 - 84,235.6 PPD
     R3F. Time / Frame : 00:14:55 - 84,953.3 PPD
     All  Time / Frame : 00:14:53 - 85,160.5 PPD
     Eff. Time / Frame : 00:15:09 - 83,529.0 PPD
    Light use on the computer throws frame times all over the place. VM is paused for gaming etc.

    Congrats! Very nice!

    I'm also very jealous. I never was able to get virtualbox to work work for my i7 970 in win 7.

    Cheapest 8 core Xeon is $1100. Damn you AMD, make better processors already...

    Edit: I tried the core wrapper in the vm from kraken and TPF has dropped to 32:22
