As for what to do with the system…I’m still undecided. Another thing: I should have put this benchmark on benchmarks.k0nsl.org as that is where it belongs, but seeing as I did all the other posts about the E8400 on this blog, I decided to put the benchmark here as well.
It’s not the end of the world
