    As a celebration of me hitting my 1st million, i will be sharing some pics of my farm... :D watch and drool :laugh:

    My Mediacenter running Q9400 hooked up to a 42" LG LCD TV and Altec Lansing MX5021 speakers.
    [​IMG]

    My Media Server running Q9450 in a 4U + 4U chassis serving 30TB of data.
    [​IMG]

    My Storage Server running 2 x Xeon E5420 in a 4U chassis backing up all my data.
    [​IMG]

    The Rack. 24U and with still a bit of room to spare for another 4U chassis. Plan to fit in PII 945 once I get the time to fix it into a rack chassis.
    [​IMG]

    The i7-920 dedicated cruncher. The only open air chassis that I use.
    [​IMG]

    An i5-750 dedicated cruncher No. 2.
    [​IMG]

    My backup gaming machine. Running i7-870.
    [​IMG]

    And for the finale, my main workstation that I use for almost anything and everything. An i7-965 along with 3 x 24" LCD's. :eek::eek::eek: Sadly no eyeinfinity for me yet.

    At the pace he is going it will take nine years to pass me.Doesn't matter anyway.I was never in this as a race.I do what I can and call it good.
    Having someone like D.Law on TPU/WCG is a great thing.All I've wanted here was for this team to succeed.Every team needs a point producer to push the others.
    I'll be leaving for spring Base Camp as soon as we decide who to visit.

    Any way I hope D.Law and anybody else passes me.That means the science is getting done and that's why I do it!

    D.Law, that's incredible, I'm thoroughly impressed! Why don't you put a non-stock HSF on Dedicated Cruncher #1 (i7) so you can OC it a bit? Even ~3.2ghz would be beneficial
    D.Law says thanks.

    theonedub:

    As rammie mentioned, there is no way for me to surpass him. Not to mention I have no intention to compete against anyone to begin with. Crunching for me is something I can "donate" with the excessive amount of hardware that I have.

    [Ion]:

    few reasons that I did not change the stock HS. Main reason is this -->

    [​IMG]

    I have a 24" fan blowing at it 24/7... No need to change to HS :p

    On top of that, collected a very interesting box from a man in blue today which got me really excited. It came in a rather big white box. My BB looks small next to it.

    YES. My Core i7-980X ES has finally arrived. cant wait to get my hand dirty on this little fella. Gonna take it for a test spin this weekend. Putting it in either a gigabyte ud7 or a asus P6X58D Premium. 12GB RAM, 5870, 80GB SSD. Will then be bringing it around for roadshows so it will be a part time cruncher until the end of May of which by then it should turn into a full time cruncher. Cant wait and see how much PPD it can put out. :D

    PS: The heatsink actually kind of sad, might swap it out and replace it with a H50 or a HR-01X. It will definately piss off the guy in blue though... :twitch:

    I could also take a pic of my laptop, but that would be boring.
