I haven't seen one up close. Now Raidmax, I have seen a few of those here lately.
That's the case I just took my 2600K out of. They are like $50 or something and are white and black. Great looking case for its price and simplicity. I am going to put my 3rd cruncher in it. Do a little white and black themed build.
Sweet looking case!
My new build is going in the Fractal Define R4 when I get the cpu and psu
You can get the Source 210's (non-elite) for about $30 w/free shipping every other month or so- great cases for the $$$
Yeah rather that over a rosewill cheap $20 case.
That looks great!
It might just be me, but it looks like your GPU is sagging a lot...
I have one and it's amazing. Roomy, has great options for cooling (even if it only comes with one fan, there are spots for a total of six) and the cable management is pretty good. And it just looks pretty nice
Peeps at the "Your PC ATM" thread said the same but it's not. Just the way it looks in the pictures.
...and the 210 Elite I love!
Here's a pic of the x3 720 moved to another room all set up. I bet someone can see something familiar in these lol.
Here's another rig on the horizon hopefully soon.
And why not. Here's a pic of where the magic happens. My so called "man cave".
and yea those totes are full of pc parts. I have 4 totes full. so anyone needing anything just hit me up and I can see what I got in stock lol. I know I have a ton of ide cables and some power cables. Not sure how many power cables I need for myself though or how many I got total. Also theres more in the closet just to the right of the pic thats not in there of course lol.
Now that my old gaming desktop has been decommissioned, I have decided to put it to a good use. His name now is Mr. Crunchy. I always knew that TPU did crunching, but I just never got around to doing it. Personally I think [H]@RD5TUFF inspired me to do it, knowing how much getting more crunchers means to him. Also, All I see everywhere, is cancer, and death from it. My Aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple months ago, and through skype calls with her, i've seen her pain and difficulty. I just makes me think, what can I do to help?
Nice and cool under my desk.
Being built. Ignore the wires crossing everywhere.. And the PSU wasn't even wired up yet.... That had my old GPU in the, the 6970.
The so called "man cave".
That's an awesome setup you have!
Check out Ion's WCG Essentials thread in my signature--it should get you started. If you have questions, just post in the the WCG/BOINC thread and we'll get you set up nice and quick!
Also, you could sell that GTX570 in Mr. Crunchie and replace it with alot less expensive HD7770 which would yeild alot better crunching/folding results. Alittle run down of video card performance with GPGPU-
Welcome to team TPU
Thats really weird! I'm actually going to keep this system as is, because, it just happens to be so, that the computer I am building for my mother, will have a 7770 or similar. Since she does not use it heavily, I can have it crunching.
So why do ATI cards get better results?
The computer I am building for my mum at christmas. I will be running it CPU crunching as much as possible, and GPU crunching in the screensaver/idle.
Intel Core i5-3570 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Corsair Vengeance 8GB

Silverstone Strider Gold 450W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI Mini ITX Motherboard
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1 OEM
As far as Radeon cards performing better with WCG gpu crunching- it's likely that the wu is structured to take advantage of the Radeon architecture better than it is for Geforce architecture.
On a side note- Geforce cards do much better with Folding@Home projects than Radeon cards and likely for a similar reason.

Corsair Water cooling. Nuff said. Thats dedicated alright.
That's a really attractive setup!
What are the full specs?
Let us know the PPD after a few days!

Just built a new one this Saturday. Very clean white build with watercooling. Specs are in my profile. Only had one computer contributing for awhile. Just added 2 more to the mix for team TPU.
The funny part was waking up this morning wondering why the new computer was so responsive considering it was supposed to be crunching away all night. I looked at the preferences and noticed a blunder....The CPU was set for 1% usage!? FML
That's great that you've added more!
Oops, 1% isn't quite right--I'm glad you got it fixed! That i7 should be sweet..the HD5850 too!
What else do you have running?
A dual core (E5400) from work which is what was running all this time doing work and just added a Q6600 (GPU is only a 9800GT)and this new recent to team TPU. Going upgrade GPU's soon.
An E5400 is still a solid setup--I have four dual cores (E7400, X2 5200+, T9600, T4200) going in addition to my i7s and they each pull ~1k PPD.
But, at least for now, GPUs are really where it's at--if youc an get some cards for those systems it will be phenomenal
What cards are the one's to look out for? Which are best?
ATI cards seem to be doing better right now (and they don't slow down the system as much). The HD7770 and HD7850 seem to be the best PPD/$ right now--but if those are too price, the HD6670 is still a reasonably good card
Good to know. I have room to throw in 4 cards in Crossfire in this new build. The HD7770 seem to be cheap enough. Do they run hot? I do not think anyone makes waterblocks for these.
best cards are 7970's but Ion is right 7850/7770 is the best value atm with a 7870 falling somewhere in between
And the cards should run fairly cool- 7770's max out @85watts iirc
