    I'm dying from the heat but I'm keeping my 2600K going. My 2nd rig did get shutoff though, I couldn't take it. :(

    I'm going to guess you aren't getting the storms the Sarasota area is getting today?

    I've turned crunching off on the X6 during the day until I can get my AC installed. Hoping to do that tonight when I get home. (If I have the right stuff to get it installed. :shadedshu )

    It's a Window unit.

    Hell if I remember. I know it's capable of cooling a entire studio apartment. (It was my dads.) So it should handle a single bedroom just fine.

    Nice. The 15K LG unit we have at work to assist the 2 ton central unit (we rent 2 1500sq ft bays in a steel walled warehouse strip, and have two conjoined offices built inside and taking about 40-50% of each bay) works well to cool off my farm, although it has to run 24/7 to do so. The reason why we have a central and a window unit is because the central unit is located in the customer office and only has enough oomph to barely cool that office, so the window unit is in the employee office where all my rigs are and stays on all the time. The 2 ton unit stays on constantly between 7am-6pm and during the night/weekends it turns on whenever the thermostat in the employee office reaches 82F.

    Hope your A/C works well for you. Our LG unit takes 1380w and by itself causes an 8v droop on a 20A circuit. :twitch:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Hit mid 90's here today. I have been running my a/c during the day and been able to shut it off at night. Cools down pretty well during the evening. All systems have been doing great on temps.





    Also fellow crunchers, I have a 940 be that I will let go pretty cheap to a fellow cruncher. I need to pay off my upgrade debt. So if anyone wants it pm me for details.

    I'm not sure what these can be called but does anyone have any? the power/reset buttons to power up a motherboard outside of a case? Since I have time now, I've been tinkering with what I have lol. I can use some molex to p4 if anyone has any and a few 20 to 24pin atx connectors. I'm sure someone has to have one or two.

    If you can't find any buttons, you can always use jumpers or a properly maneuvered screwdriver lol (not as easy, of course). Also, there's no real need for 20 to 24 pin adapters, as the 4 pins are pretty much redundant on most systems.

    I have a few older psu that are only 20pin and no p4. Are the p4's on newer mobos really needed? I know thats basically for cpu stability but on a old p4 rig really? lol

    You saying I can just put a jumper on the power switch connector and that'll turn it on also? I just stuck a temp wire in the 24pin just to jump the psu but I don't leave it in. I don't like that idea.

    You have to put it on and instantly remove it, which performs the same action as an actual button. Touching the 2 pins briefly with a screwdriver works too. Chassis buttons are "naturally open" and only close when you press them, then revert back to open when released.

    P4 connectors (2 yellow/2 black) are needed on all systems. The +4 part (orange/red/yellow/black) of a 20+4 motherboard connector is not required for system operation, however.

    Anyone have a spare 3pin Y-adapter they are not using? Want to run my fans off a motherboard controlled header and surprisingly enough I do not have one :eek: Thanks!
