This probably should have been put in the hardware section of the site, however I was more wanting to share with all my fellow TPU World Community Grid Crunchers. This first post I am going to show everyone the parts that just showed up. I am probably going to reserve the second and third post for the build and the screen shots and pictures of the system up and running. This build consists of a i7 2700K, Gigabyte Z68 motherboard, 16GB of DDR3, and a 300GB Western Digital Velociraptor and 32gb SSD for a cache drive. Before I begin showing the parts involved I first want to thank several people and the companies that has made this awesome build possible. (1) First I want to give a very special thanks to our own ChaoticG8R! For without this awesome member this build would not have seen the light of day for a few more weeks!!! Thanks a million my friend. ChaoticG8R provided the Intel 2700K and the dual PNY XLR8 10 memory chip black PCB GTX465’s!!! (2) Now I want to thank our own TexBill for providing a smoking deal on a Swiftech Apogee XL socket 1155 waterblock! TexBill is an awesome seller/trader on our forums, and without his smoking deal on the block I would have been forced to air cool this system. (3) Next I want to thank Sedah over at the EVGA forums for providing an awesome deal on a retail packaged Western Digital 300GB 10,000rpm Velociraptor. This great deal will allow this system to execute applications and programs much faster than a standard 7,200rpm drive. (4) I want to also thank a local Craigslist fella, Darrell, for providing a crazy smoking deal on a Patriot Torqx2 32GB SSD for use as a cache drive using the Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT). (5) Last but not least I want to give a big thanks to NewEgg for always being a great retailer online. NewEgg provided great deals on the motherboard, memory, and Asus DVD-RW drive. I would also like to take a minute to thank Asus, Gigabyte, Intel, AMD/ATI, G.Skill, Western Digital, Cooler Master, Swiftech, Patriot, PNY, Nvidia, Ultra, and all the rest of the awesome manufactures that give us these great products to allow us to build our dream machines and help with the fight for diseases! Now for the pictures. I will be listing the pictures in the order that I thanked everyone. First up is the awesome Intel i7 2700K processor and the dual PNY XLR8 GTX465’s provided by our own ChaoticG8R! This next shot is the Swiftech Apogee XL provided by our own awesome seller/trader, TexBill! This next picture is the Western Digital 300GB Velociraptor provided by Sedah over at EVGA forums. Sedah is a great seller/trader at their site. Now I have a picture of this small 32gb SSD drive that was provided for an unheard of price from a local Craigslist user. Darrell shot me a smoking deal on this Patriot Torqx2 drive. Finally I want to show the pictures of the motherboard, ram, and DVD-RW drive that was all great deals from the infamous NewEgg! Thanks Egg!!! In conclusion to this first post, I again want to thank ChaoticG8R, TexBill, Sedah, Darrell, and NewEgg! Without all of you this build would not have been possible!!!! Now it’s on to the pictures of the build and the next post in this thread.
