    I love how you put that :laugh:


    Me too. Was planning on redoing my rig as soon as the challenge ended, but I've had no time since I've had to study. And this weekend, we are going to Disney for a little 2 day Mickey-Minnie action, so it'll have to wait til next week now :rolleyes: Seems like it's always something....

    Man, to me, the Pie thread used to be the most amusing part of the "closing the Crunch Day". But currently, the Team Daily Number (or w/e it's called) thread is much more amusing thanks to You posting all that stuff by using the team's score for the day as a makeshift rand() function. So, don't worry – even if I don't reply on it, I still read it every time and am very glad someone (i.e. You) is doing such a mindblowingly awesome work. Can't vouch for others, though.
    But You are right on one thing – even if You tossed some made-up number, I personally probably wouldn't notice. As long as it is within sane limits. (if You'd post, like, four point six million while not in a challenge, that would definitely tip off my spidey sense)

    so the parts for the q6600 are coming together :) bought a Corsair CX430 to replace the dell OEM PSU (80+ bronze :rockout: ) . Tommorow I am buying a 775 mobo from a fellow canadian TPU member and sometime next week i'll get a cheap, yet quality case for $50-60. Also traded the 2600XT for a 4650 DDR2.

    Enermax link is the same as the CM link.

    The Fractal looks box-ish and the CM well, looks like a CM.:oops:

    I actually like that one!

    Especially, the vented window. If you go the way of the R7's, You will love that vented window, also!:D

    You have my Vote, for the Enermax. :toast:

    iirc we used an Ostrogg for one of last years giveaway rigs, check the challenges before the last birthday challenge... can't remember which one atm?

    I would vote for the CM case but would look out for a good price on a NZXT Source 210 first ;)

    @AlienIsGOD: after building a rig in a Fractal case, I have to say that I'm a fan of their build quality, very nice. CM, not too much really. That Enermax looks really nice too though, like the window. So up between Fractal and Enermax. ;)

    looking closer at the Ostrog, i think ima order one in if they dont have the one in kingston. there is 6 at another store and 6 online store so i'll just wait the 1 or 2 days for it to come in.

    For a $50 case it sure has a lot of nice features incl spots for up to 7 fans :)

    Just noticed this when poking around the site. Sure pays off being the main guy posting WCG stats, eh?

    Well that....
    ... And considering 3/7 of the top thanked members are WCG big timers, it shows: a) the WCG leaders are knowledgeable ones who post good and helpful info and b) the WCG team as a whole is a very thankful group who appreciates effort.

    Sorry for the double post :oops:

    Here's a peek at the Ostrog that Mad Shot built/xvi won in last year's Mother's Day Challenge:

    Hey team, look at this.

    [​IMG]

    Quad 16 core amd opterons, latest, with 1866mhz memory. Was browsing around looking for ideas, and came across this. http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=261829

    Far from the ideas I was looking for, but just plain awesome. I wants one.

    It appears that one of the loops, starting in the lower right corner, is a closed loop. Unconnected to the other loop with an obvious input and exit. Is it just me? :confused:

    Ok but, that still does not diminish the actuality of a closed, unconnected, loop! Does it?

    I'm all good with this Special build. However, unfinished it is. It is still what I said, no?

    Do not read my posts as some sort of cut. I am an idiot, however, I can see that it in that picture the two are not connected.

    I am hoping at the same time I am not stepping on toes, all I did is mention what I saw.

    I am not trying to say you are an idiot. I am simply saying he will surely notice it when he tries to run water through it. "unfinished"
