+1!

Plus, the latest is 3.0 (which my board shipped with) :thup:

Edit: Scratch that - You have a GL I have a Gi, my bad.

Look again, it's a H8QGi-F, and the file name is H8QG62_904 but says 3.0 on the download page at SuperMicro. I'll find out for sure when I get this build finished and power it up.

@Fever, i have no 4P, just bunch of 2P.
wow alll sudden it becomes no 4P no top10.

KGH, we're both top 10 without 4P then. But yeah, barely. Couple more people with 4P builds and we may get pushed out. Between you and harlam357 jumping up to 400K+ and Edward2's upgrade last week, I'm left squeezing blood out of turnips to catch up. And now Whitehawk's bringing up his 4P on top of the 100K/day he already does....

I guess I was getting bored holding my spot so easily. I almost forgot why I liked folding so much! I added 7 this week but they're dual cores w/ HT, and I have 12 more to image and get folding next week, and expect at least 7 more this month. Kinda got the shaft on dozens of Lenovos lately... 1-2 year old equipment sent to me from other sites instead of getting the new(er) i5-2500 model. 110 CPU's just isn't enough these days. Bringing it up to 129 should help, and replacing 25-26 of the E8400's with i5's will be the kicker. Its just about time to do the last of my equipment swaps, scan in my quarterly inventory, and submit my equipment purchase order.

Damn the 4Pdoze, full speed ahead!!

@Arkaine23, in next few weeks, when all new quad cannons finished firing 10 rounds. The cutoff of 10th spot will be around 550K. Hope w/o 4P we both still can stay in top10 :)
WTF

I don't intend to go quietly into that good night. Its just a matter of when I can get the equipment. I should hit 700K+ when I my lab is refreshed with late 2012 iMacs. I figure a 3330S will do about 15K PPD, whereas the E8400's I'd be replacing only do about 1.5K PPD.

Very very cool, Whitehawk!
But whats the purpose of the EPS splitter? Don't these MBoards run fine with only 2 EPS power connected? If yes, than what is the advantage of running it with 3 EPS connectors connected?
