    Not really...the rma will only cost me shipping and down time.

    I have yet to even begin the process. I will get on it sometime this week.

    I had to take my farm down because it was cooking me alive over here. I literally woke up dehydrated this morning because of the four GPUs going full tilt all night long. Weather is starting to get to the typical desert point. I need to see how I can rearrange things so I can continue to fold.

    ^ I agree Yukikaze...it does get rather toasty at times. I may revise my set-up eventually myself because of this during the summer months.

    It is only going to get worse weather wise, and my studio flat is going to have six computers in it next for my home-made Hadoop cluster. Gonna be toasty like heck.

    Half an hour before I had to leave for the airport my wife came to me and said that my rig in the guest room (WC'ed one) made some strange sounds (I think it was air being pumped, not water). I didn't dare risking a leak making a rush job so it will be down for 10 days untill I will be back.

    Nice little pile of hardware you got there, Hertz :toast:

    You are determined to make me buy more parts, just to stay ahead of you.

    One box is down until tomorrow. I need it's space on my bench to build and test a client's computer overnight. In case anyone is wondering why my ppd dropped....
    Edit: not that it matters all that much heheh!

    Thanks, but there's a lot of extra stuff I probably wouldn't need and shipping would likely kill me. The extra water cooling blocks would save me some hassle and allow me to sell off mine. The RAM would be nice but I'm not even certain if I'm keeping my current i7 systems running so I could salvage the RAM from them pretty easily.

    However, what do you guys think of this? I'm going to need to find 1400 dollars lying around.

    Almost ready to get my 2nd box back up. Discovered something with my client's new build.. lockable sata connectors! I had no idea, how long have these little beauties been around?
