    found me a GTX560ti(384 cores) on CL today. Shot a offer of $125 for it. About to leave now to go pic it up. This is going to be a pretty decent cruncher/folder rig I'm putting together.

    I7 860 w/ Corsair A50 heatsink
    P55 UD3R mb
    GTX560ti gpu
    PC Power and Cooling 860 watt psu
    2gig ddr3 G Skill ram(I'll add more shortly)
    160gb Caviar SE hd

    $250 in it so far, with only lacking a case and DVD drive :rockout:

    Sry bout the delay in posting this. Been real busy and to tired after work to get around to it. I'm hoping to get her running in time for CHIMP. I'm looking hard for a cpu (am3/+) for it. Doubting it'll be up by then though. Loving the non-blue board lol.

    I'd love to. In 8core would just scream (in a good way) on here.Its strange that intel has more threads per core but amd is even all the way around. I hate that.

    It seems my main rig (sys specs) is going to crap out on me. I'm going to be looking into a replacement AM2+ board if anyone has one laying around or is going to be upgrading. The board I posted an a earlier thread up top somewhere should be getting built maybe next wkend depending on when all the parts come in (Thanks to hertz9753). So my main rig will be getting completely replaced. I would still like to keep this rig running though as I put alot of time into it and I haven't been using this cpu long at all.

    So if anyone can help me out on this will. It'll be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry to hear about that pops.... best I can do for you ATM is offer up my 720BE to you for that 940 (if it's your board that's gone bad). This will give you the ability to have an AM3 capable CPU for the 990FX board. Memory controller on the 720 is a little funny with DDR3 but it should work OK as long as you don't push the memory.

    I do appreciate the offer. I have a chip (945) coming for the new board next wk. I'll keep everyone updated on the status of this rig. It seems to be ok at moment but it does have its hiccups. I can't run to much at once and I'll be changing some of the WCG settings to back it down some since I pulled out half the ram. Thats if it doesn't freeze on me when I open it again like last time.

    Try getting a fan to blow over your VRM's on the board, with the water cooler on your chip there may not be enough air to cool the VRM's.

    If you need a fan, I have a decent 80mm rosewill I can send out to you.... just need to zip tie it in there somewhere.

    hmm, my board does have the zalman heatpipe on the board. Switching the cpu cooler did take away from the fans blowing across that to help at keeping it cool. I'll look into how I can rig a fan there to blow across all that.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    That 940 chip is going to limit you on board choices as that chip only has a ddr2 mem controller. I didn't do my homework and bought one and ended up have to get another board to be able to use it. I already had a ddr3 board and it's been in the closet since then while I have waited to find a chip for it. Which I just have.

    This board was running a crappy 9600 for a while till I got ahold of a 940. I did some research and seen that the 940 was as high as I can go and still be able to use the same board. I'm basically just lookin for another am2+ ddr2 board. I'm a fan of msi since its really the only comany I've dealt with. Would like to try out others. I seen a few in b/s/t but totally broke. Lousy bills. There was a fair this wkend I didn't know about till I seen it next to where I pay one of my bills. All I could do was walk around. No fair food at all bummer.
