    Guys, once I receive my X6 and Crosshair IV, all I need to keep my Phenom II X4 running and crunching is a PSU. If anybody has anything let me know please, thanks.

    I have a power supply, hard drive i7 board and can get ram if someone were to have an i7 chip laying around. I also have coolers laying around everywhere, this would be a 24/7 runner.

    Guys, My second rig is down at the moment as the PSU's P1 Connector and the socket on the mobo just melted. My corsair TX850W that was powering the OCed i7 and 6 9800GT cards had too much I guess. My bad...I connected a couple of Ultra Kaze's to cool the rad and this thing happened and I quickly powered down the system. But touch wood. Both the mobo and PSU are working. But now Instead of OC, Im running on stock and just running 3 out of 6 cards.

    Anyone of u have a good 1000w PSU to power this baby?? Looking for Corsair or Enermax only. I have a deal with Binge on Corsair HX1000. But if u guys have any let me know. Its good to have options.

    Dusty-

    If I remember right those 9600GTs are the kind that do not require PCIe pins, no? I think that powering 6 'green cards' from the 4/8pin for the MB is not going to work. You will probably be better of with cards that take the 6pin adapter that way so much current doesn't have to pass through that connector.

    9800 GT green not 9600:cry:

    I agree with wht u r sayin one dub. But the same mobo and 6 cards worked flawlessly for 2 months without any issues. Will be careful this time though. I think with a higher wattage psu, it should be OK. I will check with four cards first....five next...and then prolly6...after testing thoroughly though!!

    anyone have a 8800GT they are willing to let go for really cheap? It would be SLI'ed in the i7 rig would fold 24/7(or as close to it as possible)
    would also take a 9800GT as i can flash my 8800GT to a 9800GT and it will work.

    I would like to see if anyone has some nice 120mm fans that I could have for cheap. Want something I can use for a better push pull setup on my Mega (currently has my Xig DK fan in push and a Yate Loon D12H in pull :eek: ).

    Okay I'm in need of quite a few things. I'm planning on building a sole purpose cruncher out of some parts I have around. From the looks of it I need...

    A cheap case, Mid tower. Needs to fit a ATX Mobo... I would like if it could take 120mm fans.
    DDR 1 RAM, looking for a 1 GB stick, maybe two. (A 2x 512MB set would also work.)
    Good PSU, doesn't need to be more than 400W, but I'm not looking to spend much...

    I might need more, I'll post again tomorrow after I check the PC itself out, as I don't remember what was in it and it is just sitting at my father's doing nothing.
