    Awesome! :toast:
    Just a 2700, or a 2700k? I sure love mine--4.4GHz easy on a $20 cooler :)

    Seeing 150k in a single day is pretty awesome :)

    Now you just need a board. I saw a deal at NewEgg last week on an MSI for something crazy like $60 AR.

    EDIT: Actually, they have it again, and it's $50 AR:

    MSI Z68A-G43 (G3) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s US...

    It's not Z77, but the 2700K would do fine on this board, as well an IB CPU.

    That is an amazing deal! However I would like a board with 3 (or even 4) PCI Express slots (for some strange reason):)

    Tried to clone a new boot drive for my wife's laptop and my cruncher raid 1 boot drive got toasted. One drive is now unpartitionable and the other has errors. Fortunately, I can still boot off the disk with errors so that I can still crunch. Had to go out and buy a new drive today. Guess I'm going to be doing clean Windows installs on both the new i7 3770k build I'm upgrading to and the transplanted q9550 system that is being replaced. There goes a lot of hours!

    Yea, you got a smoking deal on that 2700K chip Hammer!!! that was an awesome score man.



    That is a good deal, but there are many mixed reviews on that specific board. Both online and through the egg.

    I wondered why my points were low today. Got home from work and found that I had shut down BOINC to play BF3 late last night. I got a little drunk and was up until 3am getting up to work at 6am. Stupid me:(
