    Too bad about the PSU, the 500w is a GREAT unit.

    I had issues at work with a few programs, apparently some of our **** software isn't written with dual core or HT in mind. So I spent about four hours tracking down programs and setting affinity.



    But after that and a bit higher vcore (stupid vdroop) 1.4375 so under load it ends up at 1.395 actually, I was getting early WU ends on the SMP client of F@H.


    But all better now and the MX-1 has set in . 44 on core 0 and 41 on core 1 under the F@H load and with Prime running 47-45.
