    keelingj kicking it up a notch!

    Theres something rumbling from a deep, dark corner of the pond! It looks like our longtime friend and contributer keelingj has some new-fangled crunchinating machine! Its no secret anymore friend, you'd better confess: what new weaponry did you bring online to more than quadruple your output?

    Congrats, you're in rarefied air up here in the top ten (it wasn't me )

    Any hints on the new hardware, or is it going to be a surprise when my threat board lights up

    Some serious work getting done under the cover of Keelingj's lily pad.

    It doesn't look like you're rocking the -bigadv flag on any of the equipment you're using, have you tried it at all?

    Decided to run VMWare on the 16 core system. My other systems don't meet the new -bigadv requirements.

    So you're running a Linux VM using windows as the host OS with the bigadv flag on or off ? Just curious, but what other use does this system see?

    I'm not folding at all on the 16 core box. The free version of ESXi only supports 8 virtual CPU's per VM, so no -bigadv. However, it did allow me to virtualize my older servers and free up a ton of UPS capacity for new rigs.

    Nice, so what kind of hardware is folding these days? Inquiring minds (me) want to know!

    A trio of Xeon x5650's do the heavy lifting. The rest is a mix of Core2-class hardware.

    Ah, that makes sense. 3x my output plus a little extra. those 5650's are similar to my 970, which is oc'd to 3.6
