    So, took a gamble on some X5650's (ES Chips) that were 20% off RPP. And it turns out that they're good to go :D Also took the opportunity of shutting down the rig to change the cooling setup. Managed to mount the H100 on a reversed HDD cage :rockout:

    Gonna leave it stock and go sleep for now.. but can't wait to see what this can do.

    Awesome! You need to tell us your temps I want to know the difference from the H100i and H100 in cooling.

    It's hard to say on this board. CPU-0 (with H100) is normally hotter than CPU-1 because of the nearby mosfets. Once I get more meaningful results I'll PM ya.

    I will have a gtx465 crunching for the team soon, I got the pm that it was shipped today,I'm trying to get another gtx460 for crunching on also. I decided to put the case on hold for another week to build up my crunching power more. Then after I have 3 gpus I will get a case and stronger psu for them.
    I also added a a6 apu that is crunching on all cores 100% and on the onboard gpu(takes about 30min to do a task,but faster then about 2hr on cpu only)

    Bro, that's a heck of a nice (beautiful actually) build you got there Dan. Super awesome! :respect::rockout:

    :eek: Whoa my friend, I don't know where you got them chips, however the "Intel Confidential" refers to being a test sample processor! Who ever sold them to you should not have! Hopefully Intel does not find out where them chips went to, otherwise they can confiscate them from you brother.

    I'm aware of the caveats associated with them. One of the last pairs I had failed on me and of course no warranty.. it's a risk always.

    Nope :p

    That's an awesome setup you have there! :toast:

    If you aren't crunching on the CPUs (you aren't, right?) then what's the point of the faster chips?

    Just a little heads up KieX, Cpu-0 on the board is actually cpu-1 in cpu-z or e-leet and cpu-1 on the board is cpu-0 in cpu-z or e-leet. It's the same in the bios too, not sure why they're mixed up though. It's confused a lot of people though, the cpu closest to the i/o shield is the hottest one. IIRC, there was a topic over at [H] on it. One of the guys couldn't figure out why one cpu was hotter than the other. So he started swapping them around and only running one cpu at a time and disabling the other. Both cpu's ran the same temps in each of the sockets, but the rear socket closest to the i/o shield was the hottest by 5 degrees C.

    I am crunching on the CPU's as well (20GPU+ 4CPU). GPU WU times come down with higher CPU speed too, plus GPU WU may not be around forever either.

    But my main reason was just down to stability. One of my old pair was broken (dead IMC) and every now and then they'd play up. These were too cheap not to take the risk.

    Ah. Thanks for the tip, will go read up a little. I honestly thought they followed the same numbers as the PCB so guess I may check that for the other stuff like CoreTemp.

    Ahh, awesome :toast:

    How much faster has this made the GPU WUs?

    And what's that blue wire running from the outside of the case to the inside at the top?

    From 11min avg to about 9min average going from 2.2GHz to 3.0GHz

    (all out of GPU WU now though)

    EDIT: The blue wire is the USB3 cable for the top panel of the Xigmatek Elysium. Really odd design choice.

    That's a very solid setup :toast:

    Now just to get the GPU WUs going again :)

    Luckily I'm still going on some, hopefully they'll last the rest of the Challenge.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well here is a shot of my 3 Linux crunchers and one of the Windows crunchers. The Silver rig is now shut down. Oh and they live in my closet in my bedroom. LOL

    Yeah I went ahead and tried it out with a MATX board and see how well the ventilation was LOL. I dismantled it tonight as I need some of the parts from that rig for another build. But I may put that case to use for another build I am brain storming as it may just fit the build for the time period this build is aimed for. LOL
