    That's a much better deal! :toast:

    Those coolers are better than the stock heatpipe ones and nice n' quiet! :respect:

    @Ion- IF Buck can't help you with one of these then PM me and I'll arrange to get a stock heatpipe cooler out to you :)

    Okay, don't know what the hell is going on here, but my 2600K system (main system) is running like a damn pentium 66 system when crunching all of a sudden. Can't even navigate within Windows while crunching!!!! As soon as I "snooze" WCG it runs just fine?

    Rebooted, still the same. Shut down and unplugged, still the same.

    System is not running hot or anything like that, no errors, and doesn't look like any odd work units.

    Anyone else having issues like this?

    Are you running the gpu wu's? That may be slowing your system down...

    Just checked, and sure enough that is what it was Bill!!! Shit, there was two of them running? I only have a single card. :laugh: Hell there is about 10 of them stating "ready to start."

    Can't have my system down to a crawl! Do too much remote support for that! I may take this card out and install it in the 4x4 server and then it can run all it wants. :laugh:

    Strange that you're getting two running at once on a single card? If it's slowing the rig down too much then you can always disable gpu crunching while you're using it and then run em' when you're not. ;)

    I have 2 GPU WU's running at the moment too. First is working 1 CPU+1 GPU and has deadline 10/18, the second is working with 1 CPU only and has deadline 10/14 (very slow, like usual WU).

    That would be my suggestion. I don't use my desktops all that much, so I have them set to crunch on everything 24/7, but for a computer you actually use frequently, I'd set it to do CPU only while in use and then also add in the GPU while not in use :toast:

    OK guys, first I want to thank you for the "congrats" from over at the other thread. 2nd; searching for a USB 3.5" IDE or SATA+IDE enclosure and a DVI male to VGA female. Any ideas?

    I know I have been on a hiatus but have been watching and ghosting mainly. It's been an interesting month, learned some java but nothing to get me to write my own code, just modify existing some.

    Just wanted to let you know, I'm still around and kicking.

    Jr, I have a IDE/Sata to USB and a DVI to VGA adapter. You will need your own power source for the IDE/SATA adapter.

    We talked about that a while ago, what I have currently(the old enclosures electronics+spare ATX power supply) works for me to pull files but it needs to be enclosed. I'm really close to pulling the trigger on this one though:

    Let me know how much you want for the adapter.

    So you just want the DVI to VGA? Just shipping thats all. I can ship tomorrow. PM me with your full address. as for the enclosure, I say go for it cause the ones I have had in the past were good but the HDD always died so I threw them away.
