Are Cullen WUs taking longer for everyone all of a sudden, i.e. has an FFT milestone been reached recently? I only ask because I'm going for my gold badge, and before the PPS Sieve challenge, I think my 2600K was running them in less than 100 hours, but now I've got one on 9% with 21 hours elapsed, and one on 47% with (almost, within a few seconds) exactly the same amount of time elapsed.
I'm running with HT on and all 8 cores loaded, and I'm running a GTX 580 on the same machine with PPS Sieve, so I'm aware that those things will drastically affect how long it will take a 2600K to complete a given WU. It's just that I was running the same things before the challenge, and they seemed to complete much more quickly. Not a problem, and not a complaint, just wondering.
My C2Q Q8200 has a Cullen WU with 13 hours 54mins elapsed and it's at 0.140%. That's probably expected from such a slow machine, a C2Q Q8200 is probably the slowest desktop CPU anyone is running here, and I've also crammed a 560Ti in there, so that'll affect it massively. It still seems unusually slow, though.
