If I set in my preferences page Max # jobs to unlimited, I can not download more than 20 WUs, if I set it to 24 (the maximum value available) I can download 24 units

Why the 20 units limit when in the unlimited setting? Is it on purpose or an error? My hosts can simultaneously crunch many more that 24 units

It should be good, I think maybe it takes some time for the scheduler to catchup.

Your Xeon v2 reports 4,599.04 GFLOPS for sixtrack so this will make the scheduer get confused, it will come down in time to a real one.

The otehr PC looks like it would be good.

I guess that also other parameters come into play - eg those in:
options -> computing preferences -> Computing (tab) -> Other (section)
like min amount of work and additional work to store (in days)
