I have a 64 3200+ (socket 754) For seti it now does a WU in about 4 hrs was 2 hrs and lhc anywhere from 20 min to 1 hr depending on the WU. Also I havent had the problems that other people have had with boinc like lhc taking over seti, ect. BTW I'm also running the windows XP64 bit beta version 1218

On my AMD64 3200+ with it running at stock FSB speed of 200MHz I would get about 2.5hrs per wu. But when I bumped up the FSB speed to about 220-225Mhz I was getting between 1hr 48min to 2hrs. Thats with Windows Xp Pro

On my AMD64 3200+ socket 754, RAM CL2.5:
FSB 200MHz = 2h35min per WU
FSB 210MHz = 2h20min per WU
I did not try more FSB, this week I go to upgrade processor fun to Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu, finish case cooling issue (silent funs into case) and move FSB higher.
At 95% I'm running WinXP Prof. and 5% WinXP 64bits, no problems with BOINC since 22nd June 2004 (now running SETI 90%, LHC 5% and CPDN 5%).

I've found that although the work units are completed faster on an A64 than on an identical speed athlonxp, the benchmarks report the A64 as being far slower and less credit is earned. This will hopefully be resolved sometime. Wonder if Intel is a sponser :p j/k
