    Just increase the "Additional work buffer" in the network section of preferences. I usually have mine set between 1.0 to 1.5 days ;)

    Enjoy!!

    Heres a pic of my new i3 530 rig. I swapped it with the x4 940 that was on the bench. as you can see its hitting 70c on the lil screen onboard. working on getting that down in the future.

    [​IMG]

    heres the sweet x3 720. Added a gpu (HIS IceQ X 6950) to it for folding and to help with any beta's.

    [​IMG]

    heres my x4 940 that got moved. Sits on the floor somewhat under my desk do to it needing network and I don't have another wireless adapter

    I know if I stuck a system on the floor like that it would last all of about 10 seconds before one of the kids got ahold of it. LOL Hell my luck would be a fly would piss on it and short everything out :roll:

    with the HT and Turbo off, does that help at crunchin at all? wondering cause I have an 870 on its way any day now and not sure how to set it up to fully utilize/maximize performance out of it.

    No, it's just to keep temps under control...even with HT and Turbo disabled, I'm still at ~88-92c @ 100% load...with HT & Turbo, it would hit TJMax and throttle down to ~2.5-2.6. Rest assured, HT goes back on when I get a new cooler installed :)

    I have a few stock coolers for AMD around if you want one- sorry can't part with a stock heatpipe one yet though.... may have something better/quieter in a few weeks that will fit that rig just fine ;)

    Thats what I'm afraid of on mine when I get it running. I have a Tt Frio OCK for it for now until I can go water. Waiting to get the rest of my parts from storage. Still have a few lil customizations to add in tho and will update my log when I do.

    Nah, I'm good. This is another rig I built to sell (like the Celeron DC and half a dozen more before it), and it's just crunching until someone on Craigslist decides to buy it (hopefully within a week or so, that's generally how long it takes to find buyers)
    That should definitely be sufficient...I'll let you know how the Antec H2O-620 works for me. I'm aiming for less than 85c @ full load w/ HT @ 3.5GHz...

    I'm lazy so i'll just leave this link ( it's about the 17'th post)
    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65012&page=846

    That's my main rig that everything gets done on,
    btw on a different topic before i got the hyper212+ i had a corsair H50 but it seems to be opened before and lost a bit of liquid as i hear bubbles in the pump for a few seconds when it's moved around and started.
    The question is i don't want it just laying around, should i keep using it till it gives away or keep the 212+ and use the H50 on another PC?

    That case looks sweet inside. Something about the blue is really catching my attention.

    Yeah man. Saw it in pictures and thought it was interesting and perfect for the blue themed ASUS board. Saw it in person and it's totally different man. Really nice case, cable management was a breeze. and for a rather cheap mid tower, you can't really go wrong. Graphics on the outside look great too!

    Ever looked into the NZXT Source 210 Elite? Great case for the price, simple mid tower but looks pretty good and bella cheap.
