    Not to mention quite a few of the items are "perks" for doing what I do :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    That's incredible HammerON, although it must be unpleasant in there (even one quad makes my room quite hot)

    @Hat: Souls are overrated, I would happily sell mine for that setup (or even HammerON's setup)

    Here's my setup atm. I went for Coolermaster HAFs because it's already quite hot and need something really good airflow for when summer hits.

    Dedicated Crunchers/Folders:
    HAF 932 = i7 920 (4GHz) + GTX 275 (1600Hz shaders)
    Mobo tray = Q8400 (3.2GHz) + GT 240 (1728Hz shaders)

    Everyday computer (still 24/7 cruncher)
    HAF 922 = Q9550 (3.8GHz

    Roughly 9K PPD for WCG and 13K PPD F@H

    Why it's so hot in my room:
    Tiny london room with even more tiny windows coupled with the hot hardware:

    My room get's pretty hot if I don't crank the a/c.

    Got my i7, the Phenom quad and two 5770's @ 100% 24/7. Plus the Miami Weather, it's 98ºf right now.

    Either of the 8800s (I've had an 8800GT and 8800GTS). I think its about on par with an 8800GT/GTS SLI setup :cool:

    Guys, I am disappoint :shadedshu
    We need more pics ;)

    Here are the 3 systems at my house that I have crunching:
    [​IMG]
    Intel i7 860 @ 3,83ghz w/ Corsair H50, GTX260, GTS450. ~4-4.5k PPD for WCG, ~15-22k for FAH

    [​IMG]
    Intel C2D P8600 @ 2,4ghz, ~600-700 PPD for WCG

    [​IMG]
    Intel Pentium M @ 1.4ghz, ~175 PPD for WCG. Slow, but it's quiet and doesn't use much power. Not quite 3 weeks of uptime on this one, I see no reason why it should have to be rebooted any time this year

    It had been far too long, I wanted to see what people have ;)

    I've posted pics of all of these rigs before in one place, but I wanted to get them all in the same place, and maybe encourage people to post more pics ;)

    :ohwell:

    Well, whenever anything changes, please post :)

    I was going to add the 9600GT back to my i7 for the ~2.5-3k PPD it provides, but the damn card is actually slightly deeper than 2 slots. So the screws on the back stick into the fan on the GTS450 :banghead:

    W/e, I'm still doing quite well ATM, and I'm sure I'll live without those points
