    Have to shut off my folders/crunchers cause I got woken up by the sound of thunder and flash of lightning:eek::wtf: which is uncommon around this side of the country. Will turn them back on as soon as it clears.

    Will hopefully have my case panels back from the powder coater this week, it's been over a month with him cutting some custom panels etc :(, and I have a Q9550 waiting to go into the rig when I get it all back together.

    Started this build about 8 months ago ...so I really should get it finished and put it to good use crunching.

    I will for sure, I started the build log about 3 months ago but what with general life and some other hold ups I really have not got much done to it from then :ohwell:

    This was just a build for bits I had lying around but has turned into a major project now :roll:.

    i can get the money to do it, I just can't prioritize building another computer over things I gotta do first.

    2nd of all, I cant add another rig in my room, i'll suffocate. im seriously having 2nd thoughts of this i7 rig crunching in my room. I know its a lame excuse, but when you are in Miami, it gets bad. right now its 82ºf and its past 1am, but if you go outside the humidity level is 450%. its ridiculous, thus making it hot as hell even inside the house at this time of the night.

    I also live in a townhouse where there was no central a/c before, so there is no insulation prior to the installation of central a/c units. So if downstairs it is 70ºf, upstairs it is 73-74ºf. My room which is upstairs is easily another 4-5ºf hotter than upstairs only. I cant lower the a/c more because i cant freeze the other people who have computer less rooms and my mom who sleeps downstairs which to compensate for my room, it is probably 60ºf at the moment, so that my room can stay at about 71-72ºf at the moment.

    Fantastic way to heat the house in the winter up north... just stick 2 or 3 i7 crunchers and have an exhaust fan pull the heat into the ventilation system of the house... but if the basement floods you're fucked D:

    I'm thinking some of that aircon piping, the flexible silver stuff, with an extraction fan, and making a shroud to mount on the back of your rad.

    bro i'm dead serious, I have thought about this and just run it out the window or out the wall or something.
    for real bro, it gets hot as hell. I just got home from work and it was cool in the house when I walked in. Went up staris little hotter, but acceptable. Walked into my room, lets just say im sweating right now.i got two crunchers none stop in here, one of them being an i7 :eek:
