    Oh I have no idea at this point what hardware. Not even looking at this point. It will be a couple of months to catch up on some serious debits before I can even start looking.

    With the proper cooling, he could get 5ghz out of that 3930k. It takes a lot to cool it, but it is possible. Add linux for the 25% more performance and you have a heck of a chip to compete against. You have been warned @stinger608

    Okay boys and girls. :laugh:
    Just received my first step in kicking some butt around here. Got an Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe and 3770K in today! What kind of sucks is I have to put this combo in a dang full tower case. :laugh: Couldn't afford a mATX or mITX case this month.

    I'm comin for ya! There will be more next month! Thinking along the lines of Z97 and chip to go with it. Maybe the Z87 board that Durvelle has if its still available.

    Hmm, I am thinking that by the end of the year, which isn't that far off, I will be in the top 5! Bhahahahahaha

    Everyone knows of course that I am just picken on ya all. :peace:

    An itx in a full tower case is fine. It just makes the case look bigger. Cases are over rated.

    Nice combo btw.

    :laugh: You do have a point there James!!! I will probably end up putting this combo in the HD Thunder build.

    Got the combo for an insanely cheap price as well.

    Okay, long time no post in this thread. :laugh:

    I am putting together another system and calling it "Kreij almost #6". :p

    I should have it up and running in the next week or so. It will take several days to get it up to speed of course, but look out, here I come. :roll:

    specs are:

    Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming

    CPU: Intel i7-4790K (Thanks bro, as you KNOW who I am talking too. :D)

    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16 gig (2 x 8g)

    CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i

    Video card: Sapphire HD7970 3 gig

    Hard drive: Crucial M4 256 gig SSD

    Case: Cooler Master Sniper w/windowed side panel


    Over all it should be a great cruncher added to the teem.

    I know I keep giving everyone crap about "here I come" LOL, but all in all it is all about contributing to our most awesome WCG Crunching team!!!!

    Go Team TPU!!!!! :lovetpu: :respect: :lovetpu: :respect: :lovetpu: :respect: :lovetpu: :respect: :lovetpu: :respect:

    Awesome system! Those Haswell CPUs do pretty good PPD for very little power :toast:

    So, first I want to say that I have decided to dedicate this rig to our own Kreij!!! I have decided to name the rig the Dean Machine.



    Well, due to being bored and really wanting to get some pictures up, I am going to post up pics of what I have so far.

    I am only waiting on two other items to finish this build, which both should be here mid week. I figure Wednesday or Thursday. Won't actually be able to build the system until this coming weekend though.
    The two items I am waiting on is an i7-4970K chip and a Samsung PM830 mSATA 256 gig SSD.

    First and foremost I want to give a huge thanks to @kenkickr !!!! He knows why I am giving him a huge thanks. :respect: :toast: :respect: :toast:


    First up in the pics is the awesome new Cougar 700K mechanical keyboard.
    This I want to thank @sneekypeet for a great deal on this awesome board!

    Next up I want to give a big thanks to @Asylum for a great deal on the MSI Z87-G45 Gaming motherboard!

    Now next up is the great Corsair H100i liquid cooling system. This I purchased on another forum and just want to express a big thanks to the great deal I got on this.

    Now on to an amazing deal I got on a 16 gig set of Kingston HyperX Black memory modules. These again where purchased on another forum and I made an awesome deal on this set.

    [​IMG]



    Now another amazing deal. I grabbed 6 Corsair SP120 fans at an insane price. These again was purchased on yet another forum. four of these are actually going to be installed on the H100i for better cooling.

    [​IMG]


    And last up today is an awesome Sapphire DualX HD7970 that I received an amazing deal from our own @ThE_MaD_ShOt !!!

    [​IMG]


    Well that's it for today. Once I get the chip and the SSD I will update this post with them pictures as well.

    I want to give our Captain a special thanks for all the hard work he does for this awesome crunching team!!!! Thanks a ton @Norton !!!!!

    I saw the six-pack of fans for sale. It was a good deal, but I need a couple of air-flows.
