5 days into the great Linux experiment, and the ancient Core2Quad here has busted 60k RAC. Wonder what I could get with a modern CPU/Mobo?
20 days into this, and it seems to have peaked at about 140k RAC.

. . Umm, I can see a Xeon 4 core with lots of 980s (4) with a 140K RAC, but the Core2Quad with 2 x 750s seems to be in disuse.

Ah, sorry to create confusion there.
The Xeon E5450 is essentially a Core2Quad, just with the Xeon tag and in a 771 socket. Same CPU, different label, slightly different package.
Not sure how true it is, but I have heard that when testing CPUs the better ones within a given family get rebranded Xeon.
So I tend to refer to that box as a c2Q, as that's a CPU folks are familiar with in terms of capability and characteristics.
I could add additional confusion by mentioning that it's socket 771, which I've converted to socket 775 to fit the mobo ... :)
So, yeah ...
The "other" c2q is indeed not in use, due to summer power rationing.

Xeons are binned as being of a much higher quality/reliability grade over the usual consumer grade CPU which makes a big difference. ;-)

Just broke into the top 200 ranking by total credit. We're also planning a visit to the mothership (Green Bank) in a few weeks. Already booked the SETI tour!

That's a remarkable and memorable benchmark. You always remember your first million cobblestones.

Congratz to all the old-timers and first milestoners. I try not to look at my stats or my inexorable crawl to 1B stones seems far off and takes longer. Less than six months to go.
