I'm not sure why people are having trouble with the torrent. I began torrenting last night and it worked fine. Granted, it took probably 6 hours (that is, downloaded while I slept), but it is an almost 8GiB download, so I'm not sure what you'd expect.
One thing I found that helped cut the time down to only 6 hours was to selectively skip the directx install files. I'm running Windows 7, fully patched, so my DirectX is already fully up to date. That cut the download almost in half.
