    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Okay guys I need a couple more things. We need 3 x 120mm case fans that have the small 3 pin connector and not the 4 pin molex. Also we need a "black" ata 66 Ide ribbon cable.

    And here some update/ build progress photos.

    Tech support is checking the progress at the back of the case. :toast:

    Cool man thanks so much. If you want the 3 fans from the case in trade let me know. They have the 4 pin molex ends on them which for this build just isn't going to work for me.

    You need the 40-pin or 80-pin version? I have an 80-pin for sure, but IIRC that's ATA-133, not ATA-66.

    OK, I have three 80-pin cables:

    Black, single, rounded 19.5"
    Black, single, rounded 7.25"
    Balck, double, flat but folder over and bundled up 15.5"

    If you want any of those PM me your address ASAP as I plan on going to the post office tomorrow - I can get it out to you then.

    Has anyone had problems with boinc or wcg shutting down a pc???


    Over the last week my rig has been shutting down and restarting on its own. It only does this I think when wcg is running. I will do it once or twice in a 24 hr period and when wcg is the only thing running. I can turn wcg off and play BF3 and other games with out any problems.

    I think I will shut down wcg for a couple days and see what happens.

    I had a similar issue three or four months ago- was a psu that was a little bit under-powered for the rig. The problem went away after I put in a larger psu. Restart frequency was once or twice a day as well.

    Like Norton said above, it could be your psu. Your overclock might not be as stable as you think too. Every one of my rigs now takes more cpu voltage to maintain the same overclock than it did when they were new. I wasn't getting any BSOD either, but a bump or two in the vcore seemed to solve the problem for me.
