@StefanR5R , thanks for putting all this data together. I still don't know which system I would go with though. The advantage of the TR3 3970X is lower hardware cost and the option of running it more efficiently by lowering the cTDP/PPT if I choose to do so. For FAH SMP tasks with the Quick Return Bonus, it may make sense to run it at higher clock speeds. For creditnew projects lower clocks may make more sense. Then there's the winter/summer factor.
