Yes those optimized builds make a huge difference - my output doubled as a result. I'm not sure why my Celeron has started dropping from a peak of 420 or so. The others are close to their peaks but are still making tiny gains.
I am still due to lose the P3 733 soon but I will fire up the Athlon XP 2000+ once I get the necessary parts so I should make a few more small gains soon. I am still waiting for the dual P3 550 to break out & increase big-time - all the other machines have so why not it? Also the same machine went out due to a recent power outage in my city & I didn't realize it until 2 days later so I lost a little ground - so it should regain soon.
Wildcat - 16 computers????? You pimping your family's & friends' systems or something??? :)
Imagine - a few months ago Vom & I were leapfrogging around 500 or so. Wildcat was a drop in the bucket. Now all 3 of us are double or even TRIPLE that!!! :) And if more join our squad even with single systems, we can go even crazier than we are now...
