    Nope :cry: I've messaged a few random times over the last couple of months, and I never got a reply. I actually just (after I read your post) messaged him on Steam since he's on there all the time, but no answer.

    I'm assuming he's doing alright since he's online all the time, but at the same time, I think we are all a little empty inside with our dose of Ion-awesome :D

    Not trying to crap on his FS thread, but that price is way high. I have PM'd him with some info so he can better position the asking price. We are talking about hardware that is about 2 yrs old already....and it's not even overclocked!:fear:

    Gotta remember, there's a bit of downtime here since there are some long lines. ;) plus, it's just habit to pull out my phone and check TPU; I do it all the time, feels empty not too :laugh:

    Just got back to the hotel and we are all exhausted, but a little Stella is helping us out ;)

    I'm with my brother (whose pc I borrowed) and I filled him in on the recent challenge and how we did, as well as inform him of the upcoming CC where his gpu will be coming in handy. I'm thinking we will be receiving his help again :)

    Here's a peek at the February Challenge rig :)

    [​IMG]
    Testing it out crunching on Linux atm :toast:

    The i3-530 chip doesn't seem to be working :( but the Pentium dual core that brandon included with the mobo he donated runs just fine.

    Will need to see if I can locate a s1156 chip with more cores/threads to get some more crunching ppd out of it

    Recently traded my 4770k to a 4820k to get myself onto the lga2011 platform. Then I was hoping to eventually get a 4930k for a great price when haswell-e came out. Well I just got myself a 3930k that will be clocked at least to 4.5ghz :pimp::D:clap:for a great deal just now!!! In light of this, I might postpone rig maintenance till next weekend.

    Awesome, congrats on the deal and can't wait to see what it can do! :respect:

    It seems like you and I have both been putting off maintenance, so let's see who can get it done first :laugh:

    Don't say that! That might give me incentive to do it preemptively. I want to do it all at once when I have all the parts!

    I'm really hoping to get mine done this week but it may have to wait.... I'm using colored coolant this time, so I may order some better clear tubing than what Home Depot has. Their stuff is fine, but I think that it doesn't stay completely clear, which means that I may have to wait for some new stuff.

    So we'll see soon enough... :toast:

    Once my new pump arrives, I am moving to distilled water with a couple Monsoon Silver plugs instead of coolant. Using Mayhems Pastel right now, I think its staining my parts but won't know until I drain the loop.

    I have been using distilled for awhile. Coolant just seems expensive and messy in comparison to colored tubing.

    @manofthem, that home depot vinyl tubing is pretty bad. I couldn't make half the turns I wanted in my build with it. I like to use as little tubing and a big rad. Heck, I don't even use a res.

    I really want to get a temjin matx case for my maximum gene and new 3930k system. I have been moving away from cases lately though so I really don't know what I want to do. Cases are just annoying things I have to screw stuff into. With how much I mess with my build it seems like a hindrance.
