New Workstation - Results

I got the machine yesterday. See the thread "New Workstation - Opinions?" for specs. Not trying to clutter the board but wanted to put the results on a new thread to make them easier to find for folks searching the forum.

I'm really happy with it. I'll ppst results on Anna's site in the next day or so, but here is what I've found so far. I'm on XP64 SP2 and SW2009 SP3.0:

Punchholder: 62.14s
Scooby: 18.25s
Sheet Metal Carrier: 35.47
PhotoWorks (lighter): 6m 24s

Now this is without tweaking anything. From what I've seen on Anna's site i'm just as well to leave HT enabled. I don't know anything about overclocking and don't want to do anything to bang up the machine or void my warranty so I'll probably leave that alone too unless I find that it wont affect the warranty and is safe to do.

Any other things I should do to improve the performance? I'm real happy with it like it is, but of course shaving off another second or two never hurts

Thanks again to Anna, Matt, and others who gave me the info I needed to get the machine I was looking for. This thing is SMOKIN'!!!
