    My big rigs are set to no new tasks. By looking at your build ManOfThem, I have far less work to do. You tore everything apart.

    Yeah, I had to break everything down completely to move it into the 900D, and it's turning out to be a lot of work. Also my tubing that was supposed to arrive today didn't come in so I'm hoping for tomorrow on that.

    It's in depth, but I've been putting it off since Dec 14, which is when I got the 900D as a gift from my bro. I had wanted to do it at the time, but I didn't have everything I needed to make the change. Even now, I'm finding I'm short of stuff, or just that I wish I had something a little different. Oh well, there's always next time. :rolleyes:

    Then once this is done, I'll be changing the i3 into my Haf case, but that won't be anywhere near as much work since ther'es no water cooling; just a "quick" move :)

    I'm moving away from cases because they are just to much work anymore. That, and I don't have to change my loop at all. Just motherboard/cpu. Not really that difficult.

    I've wanted to have like an open test bench kind of setup, but it's just not feasible for me; not enough room and too likely a child would get into it.



    Here's a little peak at how my work is coming so far

    Looks pretty darn awesome. Ram looks very familiar too ;). I don't have children or pets so open air is not a problem.

    You've got an ideal situation then imo, nothing much to worry about.

    So how are you going to have our x79 rig? I'm looking forward to seeing some of your pics of that :)


    Btw the ram works very well, and i love the look, matches really well; thanks again. I'd love to throw in another set and look totally baller :cool:

    Awesome builds, aside. News from the Help Fight Childhood Cancer at WCG!

    AND, the good part...

    In conclusion...

    I know I helped out on this, in a VERY small way, 6 WU's, before I became internet-less, for a spell. However, I wanted to do more for this and it turns out, you all did it for me!!:respect::lovetpu:

    Since I don't have a good way to do no case, with watercooling, the x79 rig will probably just replace my current rig in my 550d. All I got to do is replace the mobo /w cpu. Quick and easy swap. I need to look through some desk case builds for ways to complete a cool idea. I am thinking getting a motherboard tray. Attach it to a piece of wood or something. Attach that to desk on rollers. Slide out computer.

    Really the most difficult thing is handling the OS's. I don't want to have to reinstall windows for my main rig again. I have done that too much lately and I am tired of it.

    I'm considering a milk crate for a future build- thinking of ways to use one as a combined case/tech bench ;)

    A milk crate? How so? Maybe placing a motherboard on a milk crate? I currently have my open boards on motherboard or gpu boxes. My main build is watercooled though making things complicated. I could just for ease keep the case I have and not change a thing. Its just when I do work on it, its a pain. There are near a dozen or more screws I must mess with. #first world problems

    Thinking that I would set it up like a HAF XB then put rad(s) on top of or across the top rails of the crate- still building it in thought atm...

    Interesting. I have a spare milk crate or two. Hmm. Bonus points if I were to get some quick dissconnect watercooling plugs.

    Anybody here have an A10-7850K or similar chip? Curious as to what PPD you're seeing out of it.

    I am absolutely, positively sure that not one single person, other than myself, could possibly give a rat's ass about what I am about to say, right now.

    << I just noticed I have more "Thanks," than "Posts".

    I told 'ya!:laugh:

    Well guys, finally got the rig back together, had to wait for the tubing which came this afternoon. It looks to be running fine so far, and let's hope it continues going well. I'll throw up a pic or 2 when I get a chance a little later.

    (minor complaint so far: I think long term i'm going to be changing out the SP120q fans with AP14s because I can hear these more, and I hate hearing lots of noise. :mad: It'll be fine for now, just thinking long term ;))

    Right now, the i3 is ripped apart and being transferred into the Haf case, and I'm throwing away my old crap case. I've been wanting to ditch that one for a long time, and it's got me excited finally able to do so.

    Well done, good sir, but maybe you should post more :laugh: :roll:

    Well, I post enough. Apparently, despite my earlier claims, people here seem to think of me as someone to Thank. :confused:

    Has to perform better than my 5800k. Stats here. http://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/host/detail/2376702
    This thing did 4k for a few months when I first got it, unexplainable. For awhile it has circled 2500k.

    Yours:
    A10-5800K = 3.8GHz/4.2GHz Turbo = 2377 PPD on Win7

    Mine:
    A10-7850K = 3.7GHz/4.0GHz Turbo = 2363 PPD Ubuntu

    Are you using the APU for video as well? Maybe if I swap out a card for the graphics it might free up more for BOINC. I think the hard drive might be dying as well (I hear lots of clicks when I move the mouse to check on it), so I'm wondering if that's affecting performance, too. The system also seems very sluggish when I try to bring up the graphics to check on it.

    Selling the 1100T would pay for most, if not all, of the cost of an 8350 if that helps ;)
